I’m a little sad to think the John Cleaver series is now over. I was really enjoying the socially awkward teenage sociopath and his struggle through high school. While the supernatural twist was a good one, I really wanted to know more about John and his struggle with others and teenage urges. I wonder if there are more books like this.

I want to find something similar :D The things I found were not similar enough for me and unfortunately I can't seem to place what all I found similar (all that they have in common is that they are all serial killer POV). Search for "the killer inside me" and then related books on sites Iguess.

Abby "I Hunt Killers" is kind of similar. and it's really great

Chip Try Charlie Huston's Joe Pitt or Henry Thompson books.

Emilyzzz I agree with Abby, I found "I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga" quite similar- but I still enjoyed John's story better.

[Name Redacted] Good news! He published a new novella set in this world as a lead-in for a new John Cleaver novel set to come out next year! :D

And boy does it get DARK. Which I appreciated since, oddly, the third novel felt like it ended on...well, not a happy note, but a note too happy for the preceding action. XP
