When I said that I would read this for Night Owl Reviews I didn't know that it was kind of a sequel to Bleeding Violet. I hadn't read it yet so I wanted to read it in case anything floated over to the next one. Honestly after reading Bleeding Violet it was really hard to even get myself to read Slice of Cherry.
I only found Slice of Cherry to be slightly better than Bleeding Violet. It was in the same crazy town as the first one but there was still a lot going on to deal with. It did seem to focus on Kit and Fancy and their world that they keep themselves in. The sisters don't usually interact with others unless they have to. Other than that it is about killing people and the sisters relationship.
It is the norm in this town for there to be something strange happening. For example, someone could be walking down the street holding a human head by the hair by their side and no one thinks anything of it. My problem is that there is just too much strange stuff. I feel like there should be at least a little "normal" so there can be some kind of connection to the plot or characters.
I wouldn't really recommend this or Bleeding Violet.
Happiness is a bloody knife.
Kit and Fancy Cordelle are sisters of the best kind: best friends, best confidantes, and best accomplices. The daughters of the infamous Bonesaw Killer, Kit and Fancy are used to feeling like outsiders, and that’s just the way they like it. But in Portero, where the weird and wild run rampant, the Cordelle sisters are hardly the oddest or most dangerous creatures around.
It’s no surprise when Kit and Fancy start to give in to their deepest desire—the desire to kill. What starts as a fascination with slicing open and stitching up quickly spirals into a gratifying murder spree. Of course, the sisters aren’t killing just anyone, only the people who truly deserve it. But the girls have learned from the mistakes of their father, and know that a shred of evidence could get them caught. So when Fancy stumbles upon a mysterious and invisible doorway to another world, she opens a door to endless possibilities….
