I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. OMG, mutant Cthulhu babies? What a riot!
    I’m intrigued by the combination of horror and humor. Stellar review, Olga. I really enjoyed it. A great way to end a workday that was mortally…poopy.
    Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Sorry to hear about your day. Yes, this one is a riot and especially recommended to people who love monsters… Hoping the rest of the week is less poopy (oh, let me tell you that bosses don’t come out too well in this story). 😉

      1. Ha! Then I definitely must read! Mutant Cthulhu babies… could be the people I work for. Sigh…

        1. I think with that thought in mind you’d enjoy it even more. Well, it’s a day off! Thanks, Teagan!

  2. Thank you Olga.

    1. Thanks, Sally. A fun read and another great find from your list.

  3. You get the book across so well in your review, Olga. However, I have a real aversion to ‘appropriate’ surnames for characters; like ‘Courage’ for someone brave, or ‘Strong’ for a hero. I also dislike the cover a great deal, and would never have picked it up in a bookshop. That said, it sounds like something that would make a good TV drama, so perhaps I would sooner watch it, than read it.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I did wonder about the cover as well, but once I checked inside I liked what I read. I know what you mean about the name as well. It’s fairly tongue-in-cheek and the other characters do comment on it (especially because when we meet him he comes across like an over the top guy, full of himself and trying to impose his rules for no reason) and he also has to get rescued by others, so it does work). I agree this would look great on screen and the special effects and make-up crew would have fun creating the monsters… Have a great Tuesday, Pete!

  4. This sounds like an interesting book with a post-apocalyptic take. Your reviews are always lovely, Olga. I enjoy your detail about the characters and their development.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. Both comments were there but were waiting to be approved. Perhaps you used a different account to enter (I think you had used the other one before and it did not recognize it, or it might be the new setting… Thanks very much. (I deleted the other one 😉 Enjoy your weekend!)
