Hmmmm I was sure that Sean would not disappoint me.

This is such a good book. This guy can write!!! The story is for adults, it's a little bit dark, but not over the top. I like the writing, the plot and the characters. The book is about family, how the education and environment can shape a human, but also the struggle to remain good in situations that you have no choice but hurt people....
In the end it seems that the evil o

"My Sister and I" written by established author Sean-Paul Thomas is a dark, gritty and twisted thriller set in the Scottish Highlands. The story focuses on thirteen year old twin sisters and their violent, psychotic and sadistic father who's obviously suffering from a severe mental health problem. One girl is desperate to gain approval from him whilst the other just wants to be free from him and live a normal life. They are constantly given survival challenges to complete in the unforgiving Scot ...more

I'm always willing to read a new Sean-Paul Thomas book because he always surprises me as to where the tale will go next. Or even which genre. Sometimes the books are light and sometimes they're pitch black.

This one is like the struggling bright lights of two barely-teen sisters under the insane yoke of an uber survivalist dad who pretty much puts them through all kinds of paces... that steadily get worse and worse.

At its core it's horror, but it's far from being on the lighter side of horror. It

There are horror stories and then there are horror stories. One type tells about monsters and things that go bump in the night and the other type shows us the dark pits of hell a human soul can reach. Most of the time, humans are the worst monsters.

Here, we follow twin sisters as they grow up with their abusive father. No sexual abuse but, as one of the girls correctly states, that doesn't really make it better. He's one of those that had his own father already drill the whole apocalypse schtick

* I would like to thank the author for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book follows the story of two sisters and their insane and psychotic father (the sisters aren't exactly sunshines either). Well this was a dark story, which shocked me from time to time. Throughout the entire book I was really angry, mainly at the father for being such a horrible person (can he be called a person?), but also at the girls. We can really see how disturbing their relationship was and

My rating 4.8

The book "My Sister And I" by Sean-Paul Thomas is a psychological thriller with a dramatic dark story. Throughout the book, we follow the thoughts of one of the twin sisters who tell us the story, about her and her sister's life, with their morbid father who came from the dark side of hell. Although the book is classified as horror, this is a hard thriller and very sad drama of two girls and their growing up in a totally insane world of a maniacal killer who is their father. But alt
Quick Review:

Sean-Paul Thomas's My Sister and I is a cruel tale with a broken heart at its center. It's going to drag you to the end like a victim and you'd be willing.

The reason I'm giving it only three stars is because I chug tales of horror and gore like water; it's just me looking for something that would surmount my ever-growing expectations for the genre. Nonetheless, I enjoyed this very much. (Or is 'mourned' a more appropriate word?)

If you’re looking for a twisted tale that takes place in the Scottish Highlands, My Sister and I, by Sean-Paul Thomas is just the answer. This is one truly messed up and sick family drama. Twin sisters, one evil and one trying to not be evil, and a father who is nothing but pure unadulterated evil. I like psy

Sorry I can't finish this book, so I can't rate it. Too much violence for me, to much pleasure hurting innocent people (twisted family - a dad and two sisters, American cheap horror movie like). And the language! no, did not like it at all. Not for me.

First of all, thanks to Sean-Paul Thomas for sending me a copy of his book in exchange for a honest review.
Also, you have to know English isn’t my first language, so feel free to correct me if I make some mistakes while writing this review.

Well, I can't say it wasn't an emotional rollercoaster.

I expected some kind of horror given the premises, but all those twists along the plot gave me the chills and they made me furious, anxious and uncomfortable - and it's all the father's fault.

Thank you to Sean-Paul Thomas for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have to say that horror is not my usual genre. That being said, I actually thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the dialect being in a lot of broad Scottish, spoken mostly by the father. The young twin daughters being raised by him, to be just like him. Cold and ruthless, yet able to handle and take care of themselves in the worst of circumstances.

I received an ARC from the author in return for an honest review.

Wow. This is dark and perhaps the darkest book so far from Sean-Paul Thomas. I love the way that whatever genre he writes he evokes the atmospheric feel of where it is set. I could feel the isolation and have to say I was impressed with this book. Two twin sisters, one fighting against the evil of her father and the other trying everything to gain her father's approval. As the father goes off the rails more and more something has t

I received this book for a fair review by the author. Judging by the cover, you know that this will be a great Halloween read. My sister and I features a twin, and by default her twin sister. They are rarely apart, being looked after by their father. Not a book with a lot of names, but it wasn't necessary.

My Sister and I are graphically violent and thought provoking to me. I admire the exploration between nature and nurture (what better way to show human behaviour in its most basic?). As the lo

I am giving this a top star rating because it is engaging, well-composed and an undeniably excellent example of its type; and that’s the criteria I use for scoring good books. This review will make it pretty clear though that I don’t like the genre and would be much happier if I hadn’t read it. If you enjoy unapologetic horror of physicality and the mind, this has my full recommendation. If not, run.

Jeezo, I love a bit of dark depravity fiction, but this was absolutely merciless.

Imagine one of those mental guys you meet in the pub, the ones with the unsettling glint in their eye that tells you they would have absolutely no problem taking you outside and stabbing you for a laugh. Imagine that guy colder, lonelier, more sadistic, less human. Imagine that guy with two twin girls he’s training up to become just like him. You just wouldn’t want to, but Thomas will make you.

I wish GR allowed a breakdown of star ratings. I would rate 4 stars based on how well the book ends, and some parts were more 3 stars for me.

Twin 13-year-old girls with a spooky connection, deal with a horrific childhood with an absolutely psychotic father, embark on a journey to scare the living crap out of everyone, then fight for their lives, each in their own way.

The book comes with a heavy warning, violence, strong language, etc, etc. I didn't find anything in the book more extreme than wha

Imagine two young girls being raised by a psychopath. This is what this book portrays. 2 young girls are being raised in the Scottish Highlands by their psychotic father. He's obsessed with the end of the world and throws his young girls into survival situations, including the killing of animals and soon people. One sister loves and respects her father, the other hates him and hates the life she is made to lead.

This book was crazy. It was a psychological thriller that can be easily seen as a hor

Really enjoyed this page-turner of gripping, twisted and grueling terror. Not for the faint of heart though that's for damn sure, so if you're not a fan torture horror and gore a plenty then you should maybe give this one a miss. The two young female leads though are fantastic, shining characters to read about. I really enjoyed the first person narration from the supposedly good sister. And letting the sisters insane story unfold upon the page you're never quite sure how things are gonna pan out ...more

A story of a very very disturbed father raising his daughters to be monsters.

It was not really my kind of story. But it written very well. Very detailed. All the weird and disgustings things happening were playing in my head. The story plays with your emotions. You want to show empathy to the characters, but good luck. But the more you read the more sorry you feel for the two girls and the more hate you have for the father.

The story made me angry and put away the book for a while because "Oh no,

I didn’t really know what to expect but in the end i read it in couple of hours in one sitting.
It has a great balance of things: it has just enough plot and just enough character development/backstory, just enough setup, just enough unexpected turns, and the end i was kinda hoping for all along.
I wanted to turn around and do other things while i was reading it, because some moments were a little too gorey for me, but

Sean is an author from Edinburgh in Scotland. He spent most of his childhood and teenage years on the move with his Scottish and Irish Parents (No, they weren't bank robbers lol ) growing up in the likes of Cyprus, Germany, Wales and England, as an army brat.

With a keen interest in both reading and writing, he was diagnosed with the travel and writing bugs very early on in life. Now, writing, trav
