Guilt by David Taylor Black follows the story of Daniel Harris as he goes back to Hope Town to take a break from his rocky marriage. At the same time, he also wants to make some research for his upcoming book. This is the first installment in Black’s Guilt series.

This book is so compelling and excruciatingly good, it stressed me out. I got so carried away with the unfortunate events that happened to Daniel in spite of him just being nice and trying to look out for everyone. He’s a very concerned citizen to a fault and that made him very vulnerable and naive.

I liked how this book is feminist in nature and also LGBTQ-friendly. I would like to commend the author for bringing such wonderful characters to life and for giving each one of them an important role. Just when you thought everything was so predictable, the author surprises the readers with great character revelations and jaw-dropping plot twists.

I’d recommend this to lovers of crime thrillers and mystery. I would also like to give a fair warning that this book contains a lot of profanity, some gore, and a mention of child molestation.

[Review] The Lost Identity Casualties by Kim Ekemar 1/5

Kim Ekemar’s The Lost Identity Casualties was too painful to read but even more painful to finish. First of all, this book was all about revenge. There were gory and violent scenes that called for proper trigger warnings. And if my memory serves me right, there were none.

Second, it was downright sexist. This book is dripping with testosterone and sure, there were a few women in the story but all of them were merely shadows.

I honestly am very generous when it comes to ratings but this one crossed the line more than once and I am so curious how this book even won an award. I should have known better than to finish it but I did commit in writing a review so here we are.
