There’s a girl screaming at the top of a hill,
Burdened by a duty she was born to fulfill.
There’s a quiet killer lurking nearby,
Watching as she wishes only to die.
She’s tasked by her mother to marry a man,
Until the demon from hell puts a wrench in the plan.
Their fates will twine in inconceivable ways.
But where one goes, the other cannot stay.
How could she fall for such a man, you ask?
For the girl with no heart, it was the easiest task.
Lita T’s Review: 4 Stars
Insolent (Sinister Fairy Tales Series) by Cynthia A. Rodriguez is a very dark twist on Brave; the story about the princess Merida aka Moira in this story. Moira is emotional and physically abused not only by her mother but her younger brothers. The king her father is cold and uncaring to her years of abuse. One day Moira while out supposedly practicing her bow and arrow she comes across a dark figure who personifies death himself. She is intrigued by his presence. When Moira finds her family and friends slaughtered and she being held captive by death, she is feeling freer than she ever has. The dynamics between death aka Sol and Moira feeds the dark side to her very soul. Sol’s job was to kill her but the fire in her eyes speak to him. I was drawn in by their story of a sick and twisted relationship. Truly enjoyed this story. Gritty as well as sexy. This was my first time reading this author. I do like the way she tells a story and look forward to reading something by her again. 4 stars for me.
Cynthia hates writing her own bio. In her down-time, you can find her watching movies, ranging anywhere from classic to action flicks (she has a weakness for Marvel adaptations), and reading any novel she can get her hands on.
She loves hearing from her readers! You can reach Cynthia at firstname.lastname@example.org. Both her Twitter and Instagram handles are @thecynrodriguez.
