Recommends it for: people who like gripping, disturbing, or uniquely dark stories
This book was most certainly nothing I was expecting to read when I cracked it open. The best word I can think of to describe it is complex. I read another review where the reviewer said this book wasn't in their genre of choice. I find it difficult to assign this book a genre. In my mind it defies simple genre classification.

Messiah of Monsters is not your typical novel. It is hard to classify into one genre, as it has major aspects of several that play heavily onto one another. The best way I could describe it would be romantic horror.

The main character, Sam, is very engrossing. He spends a lot of time in retrospect to certain situations. His thoughts and experiences give life to those around him, and reflect the darkest of society. Sometimes he seems to spend too much time in his thoughts, and it gets hard to com

I will admit, this book is really not a genre I would normally pick up. So how did I end up reading it? Well, it was sitting on the coffee table at a friends house and I picked it up for something to do while I waited. Needless to say it was a bit of a wait, and once I start a book finishing is a must. Thankfully I was not disappointed.

For a first time published author Dunn has a very well developed voice. The characters are well thought out, interesting, and realistic. They seem to have actua

Called batshit crazy and most likely to commit murder and get away with it, Dunn is nothing like any one of the characters she describes in her books. She does enjoy reading and writing about distressing folk, however.
She also enjoys teaching people, so she makes a living teaching writing skills to adults, wine drinking/tasting skills to drunks, and bullshit skills to the youth of tomorrow. Her su
