Book Review

Sister, Maiden, Monster

To survive they must evolve.

A virus tears across the globe, transforming its victims in nightmarish ways. As the world collapses, dark forces pull a small group of women together.

Erin, once quiet and closeted, acquires an appetite for a woman and her brain. Why does forbidden fruit taste so good?

Savannah, a professional BDSM switch, discovers a new turn-on: committing brutal murders for her eldritch masters.

Mareva, plagued with chronic tumors, is too horrified to acknowledge her divine role in the coming apocalypse, and as her growths multiply, so too does her desperation.

My Thoughts 

The reason I wanted this book was for the cover. I’m not going to lie…. 


So I went into the book completely blind and had no idea what to expect. BUT…. I definitely didn’t expect that… THIS BOOK ISSSSSSS CRAZY. 

Like so weird and gross and different and interesting. I really liked the idea of this book and I really loved these unpredictable and flawed characters, but I thought it wasn’t given the depth it should have been. 

The story is a very similar dystopian world of a pandemic that no one understands how to handle or get rid of. The virus the author has created is SOOOOO INTERESTING. The science behind this book is actually very well researched and makes biological sense. BUT I WANT MORE..(singing in an Ariel voice.) I just want more of everything where this book is concerned because the effects of the virus are so different for all the characters and I just wish it was more explained. It was just so fascinating. 

I also feel like these characters were not given the correct amount of read time either…. Especially Savannah. Her role in the story was so interesting and I wanted more. I also felt Mareva’s time wasn’t split up correctly either…. Her role in this apocalypse world was crazy. 

I also thought the ending was like…. Huhhhhh!?! THAT’S ALLLLLLL… I need a sequel immediately. I need to see how Mareva is with Georgie. 


I really loved this book, but it didn’t feel like a complete story, it felt like a book of novellas within the same world….
