Nice Read

I was surprised but engrossed by this book. I hadn't expected it to be told from the perspective of a drag queen. It reminded me of my early days in the gay community. Overall, I liked this book but I did have a few issues.

The Haunting of Hill House meets Priscilla, Queen of the Desert!
Had a blast reading this far-fetched and far-out tale of suspense, ancient curses, drag queens and pretty, pretty boys.
I really didn't see the ending coming like it did. What a way to stop a curse! Works for me! Well paced with characters you care about and a plausible storyline for the genre.
Look forward to reading more from Shane K Morton.

In this first chapter, Shane Morton not only gives the reader clues about the story to come, but also creates a solid picture of who Bobby is, though he himself admits that “the person he was today was not the pers
