Look, if your book is part of a series you need to indicate that in a way that will let people know before they try to read it. And if your book is NOT part of a series, it will make it a better book if you explain background things, like, say, monster attacks, EVEN IF you explained them in your last book.

Because a reader may not have READ your last book.

I don't know if this is Reeves' fault or the editor's, but it is majorly distracting.

Okay, so apparently this novel is a coming of age story with lots of murder.

Two sisters are the daughters of an imprisoned serial killer. They really want to kill people themselves. So, first of all (because there is magic in this world) one of the sisters makes a wish that they could make the bodies disappear.

She is given a way to make her "happy place" real.

Then the girls decide to only kill bad guys.

Then they find boyfriends.

This book is both silly and disturbing. It is also kind of ineffective, because I'm not sure what point it's trying to make.

Reeves SEEMS to be saying that serial killing is just a nifty way to solve problems.
