APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Matthew Reilly is known for his fast-paced action novels, and The Secret Runners of New York is just that. Skye’s new classmates at an exclusive New York prep school are disappearing. Along with her twin brother, Skye discovers a mysterious and powerful club with ties to an impending apocalypse. Reilly’s juxtaposition of the high-society life with a bleak, brutal dystopian future is both jarring and gripping. We were fascinated with the book’s exploration of social inequity and cultural collapse, but it was Skye’s desperate struggle for survival that kept us riveted until the last page. This is Gossip Girl meets The Hunger Games, and we’re all in.

Never a disappointment with Matthew Reilly
Got lost in this book for 3 wonderful days
So So good!!
This was such an amazing book with an incredible storyline the only bad thing I have to say about the book is that it’s ends on a cliff hanger with no sequel or epilogue. Aside from the ending I would definitely recommend this book and read a sequel or another perspective on the story xx
I’ve only recently started reading but they are awesome!!! my two favourites are this book and the great zoo of China both awesome. I wish we could get reds perspective of the story or maybe even a second book about the aftermath. The destroyed New York reminds me of Fallout
