Ahoy there me mateys! While I try to post no spoilers, if ye haven’t read the first book in this series, the murders of molly southbourne, then ye might want to skip this post and go read the first book. Worth the read. If ye keep reading this log then ye have been forewarned and continue at yer own peril . . . . . .
The first book in this series was weird, awesome, and fabulous. And bloody. It could have been a standalone but I have to admit that I was glad when I found out there was going to be a second book. I needed to know more about Molly Southbourne! So image me surprise when I won Matey Tammy’s giveaway to pick one of the books she read in July! I just had to get this one. As soon as it was in me greedy hands, I put everything else aside and read it. As she said:
“The nitty-gritty: Another strange and bloody tale, part horror, part sci-fi, and one hundred percent WTF.”
Yup. It be awesome. I can’t say that it was as good as the first book but it certainly veered further into crazy-land and dumped everything ye thought ye knew upside down. As this book features a clone, ye really should read book one first before jumping into this one. The original “prime” Molly may be gone but the new molly is a whole new mess. Really the novella is so short (128 pgs.) that I am not going to go into the plot. I can say that the story sometimes made little sense but was fascinating all the same.
I highly recommend both novellas. This story does seem finished after the ending of the second book. But as there are tons of unanswered questions, I wouldn’t be adverse to another. I do really enjoy this author’s work and I am glad to now own both novellas in this series as I will enjoy rereading these. Thanks Matey Tammy! Arrrr!
Side note: The First Mate is looking forward to reading this one as well. But I had to read it first!
Goodreads has this to say about the novel:
Who was Molly Southbourne? What did she leave behind?
A burnt-out basement. A name stained in blood. Bodies that remember murder, one of them left alive. A set of rules that no longer apply.
Molly Southbourne is alive. If she wants to survive, she’ll need to run, hide, and be ready to fight. There are people who remember her, who know what she is and what she’s done. Some want her alive, some want her dead, and all hold a piece to the puzzles in her head. Can Molly escape them, or will she confront the bloody history that made her?
