Review – The Death Club

The Death Club by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valetti

I will say up front that this book is not going to be for everyone. And if someone made the case to me that it’s more erotic horror than dark romance, I might be inclined to agree with them. There’s a ton of killing in this book and some of it is graphic.

But if you’re in the mood for a little gratuitous violence, a long, smoking hot, slow build, and narrators just as crazy as Harley Quinn, give The Death Club a try. It is out there.

I was immediately pulled in by the very fresh authorial voice and tone of the book and the point-of-view characters. They’re all nuts. In different ways, but completely nuts. Their nuttiness is complementary in the end, and I really liked the way they ended up playing off each other.

There’s a fairly significant age gap between the characters (about 10 years) and I liked the way the authors didn’t back away from the difference in life experience between Brooklyn and the two men. I also liked the common ground they found and the way the men come together in wanting to protect and nurture Brooklyn (even if their nurturing is not exactly what we might think of as wholesome).

There are suggestions of kink, mostly in Brooklyn’s thoughts, that I hope will come to fruition in Book 2.

Book 2 in the duet is out in June, but I suspect it will end up being a menage story. I really like the pairing of Brooklyn with her two killers and although I’m not sure I can envision a happy ending for them, I really hope they get it.
