#BookReview: Murderous Little Darlings by John Hennessy 3/5 Stars

Overview: A set of triplets are born to a dead mother and (assumably) adopted by an older couple. The eldst, Marcus, is a bit evil. Rocco, middle sibling, is weak and easily manipulated. Juliana is quiet but stands firm on her beliefs. It is Marcus’ mission to force his siblings into the life of their kind, Vampirism, but Rocco is hesitant to believe and quick to follow orders to avoid punishment. Juliana disbelieves that vampires exsist, let alone that they are ones themselves. Marcus corurses Rocco into killing the couple that raised them (to the ripe old age of 11) and then goes on a small killing spree before being captured by the police. Juliana and Rocco run from the cops and their crazy brother, but soon realize they shouldn’t have done so and go back to help him. Rocco means to actually help him escape, while Juliana wants to free the hostage child and get his brother medical attention. Then the tables are turned and unexpected events take place.

Opinion: It was good but confusing. It starts off with characters behaving a certain way, supposedly from birth, but in the end everything is flipped. The bad guy is suddenly a good guy, and the good guy has always been the bad guy. This should be an epic twist, but the way the characters talk, this has all played out before and they have lived multiple past lives. Though nothing else done or said gives you that impression. I just don’t think this one’s for me.
