Great psychological thriller, I loved the story and how everything was intertwined. The only reason it does not get 5 stars is because there is a lot of misspelled words, grammatical errors and some missing words.

This is my first introduction to author Carlyle Labuschagne.  Tethered has proven to be an attention grabbing, heart pounding thriller of a ride from start to finish. I really enjoyed the characters and the story.

Imagine being connected to a serial killer due to an organ transplant.  Unbeknownst to you the donor was killed by a brutal serial killer and you keep seeing insights of the victim and killer. Imagine cover-ups and conspiracies keeping a serial killer free to kill.  Would you be able to

Tethered has proven to be an attention grabbing, heart pounding thriller of a ride from start to finish. I really enjoyed the characters and the story,as a whole.
Imagine being connected to a serial killer, or as the title would call it, "Tethered", by receiving an organ transplant from one of the serial killer's victims?
Imagine cover ups and conspiracies keeping a serial killer free to do his bidding?
This is all explored in Carlyle Labuschagne's Tethered.

Wow! Wow! Wow! This is probably the creepiest book I have ever read, yet pure awesomeness all the way. This book is insane, in such a good way!

A young girl who receives a heart transplant from an "organ broker" suddenly starts seeing life in a totally different way, through the eyes of another person. So how does this relate to the sudden reappearance of a serial killer?

Loved the story line with the twists and turns. It is definitely not your normal thriller.

I would have rated this book MUCH higher if there were not so many grammatical errors, wrong word usage, and even mis identifying which sister was actually talking, etc. A thorough

This is an incredibly intense thriller that involves a young girl and a supernatural link to a serial killer. This story is fast-paced with incredible action and a compelling story. The characters are well-developed and presented in a realistic manner as the storyline allows. I am hoping for more books by this author.

Tethered is a gripping psychological thriller and the first book I have read by this author. The characters are well developed and interesting. The storyline is unique, well written, and gripping, keeping me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. With a dark tone, the danger, murder, kidnapping, drama, and newfound psychic abilities all combine to make a real page-turner.

I cannot wait to read more books by this author.
I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

This is one of the best psychological thrillers I have ever read. It promises every bit of mystery from start to end. And I was hooked on from the first sentence. All the characters are very brave and the story unfurls in an threatening and very mysterious way. I loved the leads. Reading in their point of view explained the book very well and it was hard to stop reading even for a moment. It's an awesome book.

I received an advance copy for my review.

Tethered has proven to be an engaging and unusual read. Imagine being tethered, or connected, to a serial killer by an organ transplant. The story connects the black market organization responsible for the harvesting of the organs and the strange leader in charge. Not your usual story.
