It’s Halloween night. Timothy Sun stands in a garden of graves beneath the branches of the Tim Burton tree, his eyes deadlocked with the gorgeous creature in the raven costume. She beckons to him with one hand, while holding an ax

This Mav Skye's first full novel and the third of hers I've read. She really knows how to keep me guessing.
It starts with Sir Sun answering a personal ad. He lives a rather routine life but this changes everything. He writes back and forth with Velva as weird stuff seems to start. When he finally meets her all hell breaks loose.
I spent half of this book wondering if he was crazy or if someone was screwing with him. Everytime I thought I was getting close to the answer of what was hap

With Wanted: Single Rose, Mav Skye has created a bizarre horror story with streaks of comedy. It is a very unusual read. Your everyday Tom, Dick or Harry falls in love with a stunning woman sounds like a cliché; it is quite different, though. Mav Skye paints a pretty clear picture of the protagonists’ minds while the story evolves. It took me a few chapters to buy into the story; the next chapter put me on the right track. This mix of hard-core horror and comedy may be disturbing some readers’ m ...more

Sir Sun has developed a new obsession: Velva, a pretty little femme fatale that he can't get out of his head. He finds himself dragged out of the routine life he knew and into a life full of mayhem and dark fascination. A life he may be a better fit for than he wishes, a life he's mortified to find he might actually (whisper it) like.

Macabre, hilarious, gory, and uncomfortably sexy; Mav Skye has crafted a story full of jaw-dropping moments that will leave you horrified, laughing, and

Girls Just Wanna Have Funions!

Mav Skye certainly has her funions with this psychotic romp into a death cult. Troubled and occasionally prone to violence loner, Sir Sun, is lured into a bloody night of axe-wielding, teenager-ending fun by the sexy and mysterious, Velva (who has now become my fictional girl crush). Frankly, for Velva, a party full of teenagers wouldn't seem that big a deal. Anyway, this is mind-twisting, funny, insane and masterfully suspenseful. Honestly couldn't put this one do

Outstanding

The book was a pageturner. A lot of suspense. It kept me guessing like those mystery parties where everyone dies one by one til you are confused who the killer is. I liked it. Good job

A Bloody Good Read

Be prepared for a surreal splatterpunk odyssey of dangerous dimensions. For all those who have fallen for the wrong girl, or just wish you had.

When Mav Skye isn't turning innocent characters into axe murderers, refinishing old furniture, chasing around her spring ducklings, or reading the latest horror novel, she's researching true crime, missing person cases, and grizzly murder scenes. She adores puppies, pirates, skulls, red hots, Tarantino movies and yes, Godzilla. Especially Godzilla.
