Book Review #183 - The Traitors by Tom Becker

The Traitors
Adam has betrayed his best friend and now he must face the consequences. His punishment is 274 years in the Dial, a prison in a notime world, where teenage traitors are forced to atone for their crime. It's a terrible place, ruled over by a cruel despot, where every day is a struggle for survival - and escape.

Legend has it that only one person has fled the Colditz-like prison. Nobody knows if he made it back to the real world, but he left behind a ray of hope that has reached through the years. Soon Adam is caught up in a deadly plan to escape. But in a world full of traitors, you can trust no one.
My Rating: 4/5
I received this book from Scholastic Australia for review.

The premise of this book was really intriguing and unique. I think that it could have been better though.

The protagonist Adam, was under developed but still was very likeable and carried the novel well.

I liked the whole concept of this book, it was fast paced and you never knew what was going to happen next. The ending especially was something that I never expected.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read an edge of your seat thriller that you will love from the very first page.
