A woman being held captive is willing to risk everything to save herself, her unborn child, and her captor’s latest victim in this claustrophobic thriller in the tradition of Misery and Room.

On an isolated farm in the United Kingdom, a woman is trapped by the monster who kidnapped her seven years ago. When she discovers she is pregnant, she resolves to protect her child no matter the cost, and starts to meticulously plan her escape. But when another woman is brought into the fold on the farm, her plans go awry. Can she save herself, her child, and this innocent woman at the same time? Or is she doomed to spend the remainder of her life captive on this farm?

Intense, dark, and utterly gripping The Last Thing to Burn is a breathtaking thriller from an author to watch.

My Thoughts

This was one of the best books I have read in a long time. I was hooked on this story from the first page. I loved Jane/Thanh.
Thanh was trafficked into the country and married off to a farmer who renamed her Jane, he controlled her every move. I felt every ounce of pain and suffering she felt.
This book was so well written, that you fell more in love with Thanh while you grew to despise her husband more with every page.

This books touches on so many raw and difficult topics, and at times I felt my heart in my mouth.
Very easy 5 stars for this one, really well written, and had me turning the pages fast. Highly recommend this.

Thank you to Will Dean, Atria Books and Netgalley for the advanced review copy.
