Pernicious Red – Natalie Bennett – I will start by saying that I was advised to read the prequel, Rose De Muerte before Pernicious Red as it sets the stage for Pernicious Red. I must admit that I had a hard time linking the 2 stories together. I kept expecting to see mentions of the characters from Rose De Muerte or some sort of a timeline, but other than a few references that were similar, it just never came together for me. I needed to clear my mind of what I had read previously in order to be able to focus fully on Pernicious. The relationship between Channing and Rosalie is one of murder, deception, sex, and unexpected twists and turns. The connection between then was formed long before either of them were even born. Family secrets, lies, and maniacal traditions run rampant throughout the story. The story keeps you guessing and the surprise twist near the ending is one that I never saw coming. I liked the story, it was a very quick read, but I wish there would have been more a backstory on the Burrows family and the origin from which their murderous tendencies came from. The only reason I rated the book at 3 ½ stars is simply because of the confusion with the prequel and lack of references between them throughout the story. I really wanted more backstories of the families and secondary characters. Natalie Bennett has fast become a go to author for serious mind f*ck, wtf, and how does someone come up with this stuff type reads for me…and I’m hooked! I was given an ARC of this book and I have given it 3 1/2 stars - Tasha
