Zipline tells the riveting story of two couples and their friend who are determined to zipline down a mountain. Each of them have a bright future ahead of them, but will they survive what hides in the woods? The group’s trek up the mountain is riddled with intrigue. Strange sounds and curious marks on the trees leave them wondering, is something following them? Gail has heard scary stories about the mountain from her uncle. Could the stories be true? What secrets are the woods hiding? Zipline hooks the reader almost immediately. This is a suspenseful story with a compelling mix of tension and adventure.

I really enjoyed the characters in Zipline. There is complex but brave Gail, resourceful Danny, insecure-ish Paula, weed-head Sam and hard-to-pin-down Neal. Each character is unique and compelling and their issues with each other makes their relationships feel deep and meaningful, and makes for a gripping read when things go awry.

The trek through the woods is written in such a way that readers will feel practically compelled to continue reading. The characters reactions to situations in the woods are stunningly detailed and their emotions are conveyed in a way that allows readers to experience the emotional highs and lows right along with the characters. The majority of the story takes place in the woods, which provides a captivating setting for the story and imbues the book with a sense of intrigue and adventure throughout. The story has many suspenseful moments, but there are also light-hearted moments which is welcome because at times the issues faced in the woods can be grim.

P. Anthony Michael has created a suspenseful story with a unique adventure element that is interesting, but I felt that some scenes were a bit drawn out. I would have liked more of an emphasis or build up to the warning that Gail’s uncle gives them about the danger in the woods, but otherwise I think this is still and entertaining mystery story that fans of adventure novels will find engrossing. I recommend Zipline for its gripping storyline that leaves you wondering; what will happen next?
