When Zoo agrees to take part in a new reality television show, In the Dark, she knows she will be tested to the limit.

Fighting to survive deep in the forest, every moment analysed by the outside world, this is her ultimate challenge before starting a family. But as the contestants are overtaken by hunger, injury and psychological breakdown, the mind games and hazards to which they are subjected seem increasingly extreme and dark beyond measure. This isn't what Zoo signed up for. Is she in a game with no end? Discovering the truth is just the beginning....

Praise for this book

"Tense and gorgeous and so damn clever . . . I loved every second." - Lauren Beukes

"The Last One seamlessly melds two of our contemporary obsessions - the threat of global catastrophe and the staged drama of reality TV - into a fiercely imagined tale of the human psyche under stress. This is an uncompromising, thought-provoking debut." - Justin Cronin

"Like The Hunger Games, Alexandra Oliva's novel is page-turning and deeply unsettling." - Rosamund Lupton
