Book Review: Curse of Silence by Viola Tempest

Curse of Silence
by Viola Tempest
December 7th, 2021
Genre: Paranormal Thriller
Once every eighty-seven years, a child like no other is born.

So powerful and destructive, the child must remain contained, or humanity shall cease to exist.

Three generations of the Red Queen.

In 1853, Francesca Billings incinerated Baylor Orphanage in Stockbridge, massacring everyone who resided in it, a mystery left unsolved for seventy-one years…

Until Liliana Watson was born, ruling the world with an iron fist. Her abject cruelty has rendered countless silent. Mouths sewn shut. Lips melted together. The threat of death guaranteed should anyone dare utter a word.

Now, there’s Mara Tempest, a child of the 21st Century, an orphan who lost everything she ever loved, and manipulated into dominating the world once again to avenge her malicious predecessors.

With the clock ticking and the danger escalating, will the citizens of Stockbridge be able to find these chosen children of Remphelia and save the world before it is silenced forever?

Fatal Kiss is 171 pages of a darker more twisted "romance" or maybe obsession. There are some mixed reviews on this one, per Amazon anyway, and while I can see the reasons for those, personally I think the author took a chance. Roll the dice, let it ride, baby!

I mean, love it or hate it there is just no middle with this book. Yes, it shows the more sadistic side of a person but haven't we all heard about this? Or done something like this? Maybe even thought about it! Either way, Angel or not, this story is dark in context and the writer takes you there.

Not a lot of depth with the characters, but again I just took that to mean they are shallow and kinda evil in a way. I almost wish the author had just jumped right in, full rabbit hole, made this one even darker, and took the reader to that place. Go full-blown wicked witch of Oz and make no apologies. Maybe in the next installment? I think the bad guys and gals sometimes have even more fun.

Personally, I say to each reader their own. I didn't hate it overall but would have liked more scene descriptions and basic storytelling needed some work over. Read other reviews on this one and see how you feel.
