  1. If I were basing my purchase decision strictly on the cover I’d have passed this one by. And based on your review it sounds like that wouldn’t have been a bad decision this time, though there are certainly times it would have been. The artwork doesn’t really work for me. Maybe in time I’d warm to it. Sorry to hear you didn’t find the story engaging. I do like the quote you chose, though: “The first time we met, I bit her.” 🙂

    1. I can’t blame you there. I wouldn’t have bought this too. Someone would have had to convince me to do so. I was still curious to try it out since TKO Studios did deliver some awesome stories in the past. Unfortunately, I think there’s still a lot of room for improvement for these creators. Hahaha it’s actually the first line in the story and, to contextualize, it’s actually the house saying it, having cut one of the characters when she tried to open a door or something. 😛

  2. An intriguing concept. Too bad the execution wasn’t the greatest.
    Sometimes with my stories, when I think I have a fun idea, I focus on it more than anything else and I don’t realize that the story is half-baked until it’s too late. You’re too blinded by the pride of coming up with something original.

    1. It’s interesting to hear that take from a writer. It must be so exciting to find an original idea too. I can understand why you get consumed by it and might fall into a pit too deep to see how you’ve handled the other elements of the story. I guess that’s what editors are for in the end hahaha 😀

  3. Nope, thanks. The art is just not my cuppa, and the story similarly seems not something I’d enjoy – and from your review I’m assuming you didn’t either. But thanks for taking one for the team, Lashaan! 😀 I’ll be steering clear of this.

    1. I’m so glad to hear from someone who read it too. It’s so sad that it turned out this way. The narration oftentimes felt iffy, unnatural, if I could say so. I think the story could’ve benefited from a triple-narration at least to get us to better connect with these characters too. 😦
