I am in love with this horrifying sociopath, lol. John Clever is a great character indeed. We are introduced to Mr. Monster in this sequel to I am not a Serial Killer. John has serial killer tendencies, he actually dreams about violence. He is more comfortable in the mortuary with his mom, the family embalming business, he is like a kid with candy when waiting for the bodies to arrive.
Most people are uncomfortable with dead bodies but when bodies start showing up John is always around. Why is this? Is someone sending John a message, is it coincidence or is John the killer, you will enjoy this thrill ride trying to figure it out.
I enjoyed the beginning reminding me why I enjoyed I am not a Serial Killer and then BANG, it all comes to a head and I can't stop reading. I am wow'd with this series. John lives by rules in order to not become a serial killer and he does fight and try to be good. One of his rules is to not look or stalk females, especially Brooke who he really likes and she is so intrigued with him, she likes him too. I enjoyed this part of the story also. Dark and twisted, even horrifying but then a touch of cute.
I highly recommend this series, so glad the next in the series just came out. I recommend to read this series in order. The important thing to remember about me is I love stand alone's, I want it all but I have truly enjoyed this series, I feel complete at the end but Dan Wells makes me excited for what is next, the last sentence, OMG. I want more, yes I do.
Note - there is a disturbing scene regarding animal cruelty, some may not be able to handle this.
