Book Review - Purple Kitty: A Serena McKay Crime Novel #1 - Chariss K Walker

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

This is a really DARK dystopian novel. It is a world where very few are rich and most are extremely poor--very little middle class at all. Serena McKay had a horrendous childhood until she was literally deserted by her Mom and ended up in a State run home. Luckily she was taken in my a loving and good couple! She had attempted suicide right before her Mom disappeared--and Serena was left alive but with a super power!

She went on to become a police officer. The male cops really gave any female a hard time and did things that --well lets just say there are ways to stop sexual harassment now! She eventually left the force and became a private investigator. She takes on a case to find a missing child. The abductor is not who you think it is--but there is a serial killer after her--and her green eyes.

This one honestly gave me nightmares. Heaven help us if our world ever really turns out like this. There are scenes that are not for the faint of heart. If you truly love horror and/or psychological terror then this is the novel for you.

Her nonfiction books share insight, hope, and inspiration. Even though Chariss writes dark-fiction about insanely dark topics, such as sexual abuse, incest, pedophilia, sexual assault, and other inappropriate dinner conversation, there is always an essential question of the abstract nature that gives a reader increasing awareness and perception.

This sounds like a terrifying read that would cause me panic attacks and nightmares. I do know a person that likes these kinds of novels, I wonder what is in her soul?
