Have you ever wondered what world would be like if many people had Dr. Jeckyll’s affliction? Even worse – if they couldn’t control it. That’s exactly what this story is about and trust me – you want to read it.

The story is told from Elliot’s point of view. A boy, who wanted to wipe his ability to feel and instead he became a strong empath. He’s trying to mute his ability with alcohol, but then he meets Iris. A girl who is different than all other women in town. She’s not afraid.

The problem with Hydes is that they’re unpredictable. If you got infected, you might change at any time and attack everyone around you reaching for their heart. Because the heart is what Hydes eat.

With women it’s different – they can’t be infected, they can only die. So why isn’t Iris afraid?

OK, so there’s instant love in this book. It bothers me too, but that’s a minor issue in this case. The book reads so well you simply can’t stop. Continue reading “Hyding your heart”

Review tour – Otto Von Trapezoid and the Empress of Thieves by Jesse Baruffi

October Tour Banner

This story is hilarious! The best non-graphic-novel funny villain story I’ve ever read. You can almost see scenes described there in cartoonish style movie with some cheesy, yet awesome music and the two amazing villains deciding whether to fall in love with each other or kill each other.

This book is perfect! I’m not even going to write you what it’s about, I’ll just use the blurb because I’d rather write you what I felt reading this.

OTTO VON TRAPEZOID AND THE EMPRESS OF THIEVES is the story of two criminal masterminds who can conquer anything except their own feelings. Otto Von Trapezoid is a mad scientist who rules an army of robots from his orbital space station. Angry and grumpy, he sees no value in humanity except becoming their ruler. Esmerelda Santa Monica is the stylish self-proclaimed “Empress of Thieves,” who values her own legend and the thrill of the theft over actual wealth. Both live lonely lives, the desire to become the greatest villains of all time primarily on their minds.

When the two meet in simultaneous attempts to blackmail the UN, their instincts are to attempt to kill one another, but soon they discover a mutual attraction that neither thought possible. Once they begin to pool their resources, the pair seems on track to become the most successful evil-doers of all time and set out to conquer the world itself. But what happens when their villainous natures emerge, and both realize there can only be one absolute ruler of Earth? Can either be satisfied with being second to another?

To make matters worse, they must deal with the protestations of Otto’s sidekick robot SCRAP, the meddling of their fellow villains, their families, and worst of all, heroic superspy Jake Indestructible is determined to bring them both down, once and for all.

Filled with robot dinosaurs, exploding dinner parties, and villainous poker games, OTTO VON TRAPEZOID AND THE EMPRESS OF THIEVES is a hilarious sci-fi comedy that will leave you falling in love with the bad guys!

Yes, you should be in love with this book already. Continue reading “Review tour – Otto Von Trapezoid and the Empress of Thieves by Jesse Baruffi”
