Kit and Fancy Cordelle are sisters of the best kind: best friends, best confidantes, and best accomplices. The daughters of the infamous Bonesaw Killer, Kit and Fancy are used to feeling like outsiders, and that’s just the way they like it. But in Portero, where the weird and wild run rampant, the Cordelle sisters are hardly the oddest or most dangerous creatures around.
It’s no surprise when Kit and Fancy start to give in to their deepest desire—the desire to kill. What starts as a fascination with slicing open and stitching up quickly spirals into a gratifying murder spree. Of course, the sisters aren’t killing just anyone, only the people who truly deserve it. But the girls have learned from the mistakes of their father, and know that a shred of evidence could get them caught. So when Fancy stumbles upon a mysterious and invisible doorway to another world, she opens a door to endless possibilities….
"But what if the monsters come?"Slice of Cherry is DIFFERENT. Did I like it? Yes (well most of the time). Did it scare the crap out of me? Yes? It twisted? YES!
"Fancy." Kit looked away from the drama to stare at her sisters, surprised. "We are the monsters."
The world of Portero is hands down the strangest the world I have ever read but thanks to Reeves wonderfully descriptive writing you get a clear picture of this very odd world. Dia Reeves writing is also fast moving, unpredictable and completely engrossing. However even though I did enjoy this, quite a few times I was thinking is Reeves crazy! For me, sometimes the scenes were a little too weird and gruesome. That might because I am not the biggest fan of horror and can't even watch a scary movie without having nightmares for weeks. So I am warning you this book isn't for the faint at heart.
I did however love the characters Fancy and Kit. They are two sisters you wouldn't want to cross. Both original, interesting and a little bit wicked. Fancy though was my favourite, maybe because she wasn't as scary as Kit. The romance in this book though bothered me. Ilan looked at Kit like a predator in my opinion and it kind of felt creepy.
Overall, this book has all the right elements if you like your books on the scary side but unfortunately I don't.
Recommend: Fans of Bleeding Violets also by Dia Reeves or horror genre. Or if you ever wanted to know what a killer or should I say killers are thinking this book might be for you.
