So far (the prologue) I'm thinking I'm going to like this...
"First comes the blood and then comes the.... First comes the blood and then comes the screams, then comes the screams, then comes the screams, and the wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, its so loud. I just wanna sleep and the screams come around all the day long."
Oh I think I love this already.....
Cadance/Shiro/Adrienne has to be my favorite character(s)yet. At first I thought she/they didn't know that the other ones existed - but time showed my original assumption was wrong.
This book is not a "serious" read. But it doesn't detract from its awesomeness. Its a light, twisted, comical read.
MMW is told in first person from the point of view of the "sisters". Traumatized at a young age Cadance acquired a "sister" to protect her, a little later she acquired another "sister" to remember. Together, they fight crime at an atypical branch of the FBI dubbed BOFFO. BOFFO is comprised of all the crazies you'd never expect to carry weapons at the insistence of the government...
BOFFO is after a serial killer that kills three people each round. And lo and behold the killer, given the monicker ThreeFer, knows "the sisters" and is leaving her/them messages at the crime scenes.
The twist is interesting, and the mild romance in the subplot is comical and odd... but what can you expect when a "single" starts dating the sisters?
If you want a read that's quick, twisted, and darkly humorous - check this book out. I'll definitely be checking out more of MaryJanice Davidson's works.
