I’m friends with the Monsters…

relikWow. I don’t know what to really say about this except…WOW. I’m a fan of Teresa Mummert, Pretty Little Things was sooo good. Most of what I’ve read from her is a little dark, unlikely heroes/heroines and all but it’s good nevertheless. Rellik is definitely no different.

Rellik is the front man of band who rocks hard and parties harder. He can have any woman he wants…groupies are easy like that. But he does want them. He doesn’t care about anything. He doesn’t feel anything since he lost Katie 8yrs ago. That was until he met her.

Ella Leighton has tried to keep a low profile while desperately searching for answers and a way out. She is on the right path but she is missing one piece of the puzzle…Him.

It took me a total of 6hrs (I had to have a dinner and Scandal break) to get through this crazy tangle of a story and I enjoyed EVERY INSANE MINUTE of it. At one point I thought this was going to be sick and tortuous because I couldn’t figure out how the two main characters fit with one another and the way my mind was taking it was going to make me ill, but once that part was revealed I was relieved to say the least. I liked out the story continuously went back and forth between the past and present allowing you to get a better understanding for the characters. It let you feel their pain, hurt, suffering and need for revenge and by the end I was wondering if I was slightly disturbed for being glad certain people got what was coming to them. I guess revenge or vengeance is natural when you feel you’ve been wronged but my mama always told me two wrongs don’t make a right. What she didn’t tell me was how good it felt when you finally received your perceived “justice” so for that I applaud Rellik and Ella for being brave enough to serve justice when it was needed.

I loved the guys in the band and how they all supported each other and shared a common past. I hope each member gets their own book because I would love to get into the heads of Trigger, Hangman and Phantom. I’m wondering is it’s the Psychology classes I’ve taken?? Hmmm…any ways 4.5 out of 5 stars for this dark novel.
