Not A 'Killer' Read, but You'll Get The 'Message'

So as part of my summer reading series that no one really knows or cares about because I'm not Oprah, I randomly picked up "Don't Kill The Messenger" by Eileen Rendahl simply on the basis of the synopsis on the back. I knew I was looking for something funny, light and fantastic. Well, check, check and double check. This little number included ninjas, vampires, taoist monks and a kick-ass/snarky heroine not unlike Buffy (the vampire slayer; newsflash kids, there was a world before Twilight and Joss Whedon ruled it!)

As a result, well it didn't have any proverbial suckage of the vampires in the story, but I wasn't completely blown away. It starts off strong, with prior said ninjas, vampires and such, however the ending seemed kind of sloppy and noticeably didn't tie up one of the loose ends. Daddy didn't like that too much.

But for what it is: a fun adventure story about a 20-something girl balancing careers (both mystical and otherwise), a struggling social life, family and zombies (didn't I mention the zombies?) it's worth a read. So be in the mood for a good time. And if you don't like it, hey, don't kill the messenger. (Oh no I didn't!)

What did you think of this review?
