Book Reviews: The Devouring Gray + Island Of The Sequined Love Nun

The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman

This deliciously good novel is about a mysterious small town with a secret. There is no realm of reason and the town has a darkness at its core. The inhabitants are locked in an invisible prison of fear and insecurity. People have a grim and wonderful determination. There are dreadful revelations, greviously immoral people, a whiner, trust issues, powers, an elusive past and people react badly when the subtleties of their world are challenged. This seems to be the start of a series and I wish to read more. This was excellent and pleasingly wicked.


Best Lines:

“He was the reason his whole family left town.”


“Nobody would ever stay here if they had a choice.”


“That place where nightmares dwell.”


“Useless, futile stand against the inevitable.”


“Something bad is coming for us.”


“Of course, there's a creepy attic,”


“The ugliness that lurked within the families who supposedly protected them.”


~
Island Of The Sequined Love Nun by Christopher Moore

This 1997 novel is sexist and racist and it was all cold patronizing distain not a comedy.
