We love book bloggers. We especially love the book bloggers who write nice things about our books. Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been lucky enough to receive a number of great reviews for Killing Cupid. Here’s a round-up, with links through to the original articles.
“A book that will make you think long after you’ve turned the final page…I could imagine some really heated discussions arising from the premise of this novel. It would be a great book for reading groups to discuss.”
-Cheryl Pasquier, Madhouse Family Reviews
“This really is an excellent example of a tense thriller and lovers of the genre will no doubt enjoy this effort from the talented duo of Voss and Edwards.”
-Cesca Martin, Novelicious.
“Despite the serious subject-matter of stalking, this story isn’t just dark and creepy. It’s fairly light hearted and funny too. Once I got started I didn’t want to put it down and so I raced through the book. Killing Cupid is a fascinating insight into stalking and a totally gripping read.”
-Nikki-Ann, Notes of Life
“Edwards and Voss do a good job of making Alex come across as sympathetic, even though you know he’s a seriously screwed-up individual. They also do a good job of making Siobhan seem sympathetic in the earlier part of the novel but make her transition to angry stalker later in the novel unfold realistically. The technique of narration via the character’s journals gives the story some nice twists and delivers a satisfying twist or two at the end. Killing Cupid is a good solid novel with a few narrative surprises and will give readers a lot of enjoyment. Recommended.”
-Martin Stanley, TheGamblersNovel
“The story made me laugh at times too; I loved this moment when Alex has entered Siobhan’s house, unknown to her, whilst she is out, and he thinks he has heard her return home and may find him there: ‘I was terrified that she was going to open the door – not because I didn’t want to see her, but I thought it might harm our relationship if she found me crouched in her wardrobe.’ Brilliant! A dark, twisted psychological thriller that is a compulsive read.”
-Lindsay Healy, The Little Reader Library
“I don’t want to reveal too much of the plot… just to say, expect the unexpected – with bells on! Killing Cupid is a highly enjoyable read. Alex and Siobhan are quirky, flawed and very human, and they are supported by a vertible gaggle of friends and family members. Apparently, Voss and Edwards met after she saw him on a TV documentary about aspiring writers. They formed a writing partnership and the idea for Killing Cupid came over a few drinks in London. Alcohol-fuelled or not, it was an inspired meeting of minds. And this is the cracking result. Read it!”
“The central intelligence of Killing Cupid is that it takes what would commonly be known as the standard chick lit plot “boy meets girl, misunderstandings and obstacles ensue, happy ending” and perverts it making it a subversive version of that sort of novel, like a twisted reflection in a black mirror, the dark side of human emotion. It’s like an anti-chick lit, chick lit, behaviours that can seem endearing in those sorts of novels, finding out where someone lives to try and “bump into them” become not the sweet fare of a Hugh Grant love story, but a woman’s worst nightmare.”
-Roz, Don’t Read That Read This
“I totally enjoyed reading ‘Killing Cupid’ from start to finish. I found this novel to be very exciting and gripping all the way through and even erotic at times. Both sides of the story have been told in journal and diary form and this method works very well indeed. It makes you realise just how easy it can be to become obsessed with someone, dangerously so sometimes.”
-Sonya, A Lover of Books
