Review: Sex, Marry, Kill

From Todd Travis, Sex, Marry, Kill is a rarity.

Plot wise, it's a little different. The blurb says it all:

"An online game that would change their lives and give them power over others. They could do anything they wanted, sleep with anyone they wanted to, kill anyone who got in their way. Their every fantasy fulfilled.

But at a mortal price. They soon discover that the game will consume and destroy them unless they find a way to stop it before it's too late."

So is it any good?

Yes. Yes it is. Okay, so firstly the cast of characters are made up by your common group of high school unpopular kids. The weirdos. They're surprisingly relatable, You really start to like them. One of them, Ed, couldn't be more like Bob's Burgers own Gene. He's all kinds of awesome.

There are twists, turns, as the group are torn apart with different wants and desires. It really is good.

Pulls at the heart strings more than once, as well.

It's got a cracking finale, action, and scares.

For a book aimed very much at adults though, the writing style is extremely simple. There's no pretentiousness to the writing. Its very easy to read, and very quick. No noticeable errors. Well edited. 

Over all, pretty much flawless.
