Book Review: Quintessentially Q

Quintessentially Q (Monsters in the Dark #2)
by Pepper Winters

“All my life, I battled with the knowledge I was twisted… fucked up to want something so deliciously dark—wrong on so many levels. But then slave fifty-eight entered my world. Hissing, fighting, with a core of iron, she showed me an existence where two wrongs make a right."

Tess is Q’s completely. Q is Tess’s irrevocably. But now, they must learn the boundaries of their unconventional relationship, while Tess seeks vengeance on the men who sold her. Q made a blood-oath to deliver their corpses at Tess’s feet, and that’s just what he’ll do.

He may be a monster, but he’s Tess’s monster.

TeriLyn's thoughts: This story is unbelievably good in a seriously twisted, frightening, compelling way of being good. I'm not certain how to review this to do it justice without spoiling the plot for anyone so I've decided to keep this a bit short maybe even a bit vague.

Pepper Winters can write the hell out of, well...hell. She absorbs her reader with darkness, her words disturbingly consuming you. Ms. Winters writes about the dregs of which some humans feed from with compassion and precision. Quintessentially Q will make you FEEL. It will make you THINK. This story takes the worst kind of horror and makes you feel it, think about it. It truly makes you want to be stronger because of it. So many emotions consumed me while reading Tess & Q's second book; horror, disgust, love, compassion. This book is gripping, swirling with endless dark emotions you feel throughout the entire journey all the while creating light in darkness. Tess and Q are characters whom make you feel for them and with them. QQ is told from dual POV's and in my opinion it was a brilliant storytelling choice. Reading the agony festering in each of them made this story so much better. We didn't have to guess at the reactions from either of them, we lived nightmares and dreams right alongside of both Q and Tess. The writing is astounding, the plot is explosive, and the story will grip you with a powerful storm of feelings from beginning to end. This author will tear you apart and put the pieces back together. It's startling to realize that while she's tearing down her characters she's doing the exact same to the reader. I was literally clutching my Kindle until the very last word. Bravo, Ms. Winters, the Monsters in the Dark series is crazy good, hauntingly perfect.

Favorite Quote:
'We broke each other, and the only way to stay whole was to entwine ourselves, gluing the jagged parts, stitching our souls into one.'
