Book Review

Review: Monstrous Heart by Claire McKenna

I like a gothic novel. I've loved reading novels like Wakenhyrst, Melmoth and The Binding to name a few recent ones. I also love a classic gothic romance - mystery ex-wife, Jane Eyre/Rebecca vibes? Yes please. Fantasy magic systems based on blood? Sure. I just didn't expect this book to try to do all of those things, whilst not managing to follow through on all of these ideas well.
