Murderous Little Darlings by John Hennessey

Three siblings. An endless list of victims. A whole lot of time to kill.

* * *

With two specimens of the undead on either side of her, Juliana knew there was no escape. Kill the one they had selected for her, or be killed, and become one of them. What had the neighbours in the road called them, back when their childhood pranks were just that?

Oh yes, she remembered now. Murderous Little Darlings. They had the faces of angels, but possessed the very soul of the Devil.

Marcus had fully embraced his vampire side from the moment he was born. Rocco was the second eldest, and had fought the temptation all of his life. Then Marcus finally broke him.

That just left Juliana. Will she resist them, or join in the hunt?

 
Goodreads


I had high hopes going into this book. Who doesn’t love murderous little kids? They’re terrifying AND adorable. I can’t say I was satisfied. I liked it to some degree, but I didn’t love it as I had hoped.

 

It felt like it took forever to get to the point. It was confusing at times and just left me wanting more. Not in the “this is so awesome, I want to know more” kind of way but more of the, “well that wasn’t enough” way.

 

There was a GREAT plot twist at the end though that I never saw coming. That was the best part of the book, and not just because it was the end. I doubt I will read the next book in the series, but it’s not completely out of the question if I find it on sale.
