Whilst no-one in their right mind would EVER call the author's work comedy, she does imbue her books with humour and tongue-in-cheek pop culture references. And they are such clever little touches, often thought provoking and frequently providing both extra layers and depth. There is so much foreshadowing too, when I re-read her books I find myself constantly wondering how I'd missed such obvious clues, easter eggs and signposts. Yet there is NEVER anything typical, predictable or cliched about her work. In fact Cari Silverwood has a fairly unique literary 'voice', one that makes so many other authors seem pale by comparison.
On to Cyn and her two Beaster warriors .....hmmmmm, so dark, dirty and sexy as all heck. This trio are just so perfect, each adding their own little spin to the dynamic. Fitting together perfectly and loving each other uniquely. There are more incredibly hot, naughty and definitely perverted sexy times too - I'll never look at a beer bottle the same way again.
The book is also full of great and inspiring speeches, involving ashtrays, hood ornaments and bots keeping your soul safe (I didn't cry at that one, you did). It was packed with great thoughts on osmosis, build-a-bear, dwarves and their beards and feeling grumpy. Then there were all the little finishing touches like fair-haired bobble heads in blue suits, Dali paintings and tentacles.
Cyn faces some incredibly tough choices in this book, choices that might change her beyond all recognition, changes that might damn her soul forever. Will she rise to the challenge, can Rutger and Vargr keep her safe and when she encounters someone she once cared for will she make the right decisions?
There is so much packed into this book it felt as though I'd read a whole series by the end of it. You can't afford to let your focus drift for even a second, every word, action and observation has meaning. You do need to have read Vargr and Rutger , in that order, first. This is not a stand alone read and will not make sense if you try and read it as such.
The quirky humour gave me quite a few laugh out loud moments and many of the references to popular culture are hilarious (loved Big Mo doing his 'stuck in the middle with you' song). If you like your books to be fast moving, filthy and funny (and apocalyptic) then you will certainly enjoy this trilogy.
Cyn is full of glorious sarcasm as she navigates new information about herself and her crew. And boy, does it shock the group AND me! I found this particular twist crazy and satisfying, taking The story into another dimension as it fires down to the inevitable showdown.
"“You’re right. We need to get things done. Maura found a strategy list Willow wrote out and I’m pretty sure it didn’t start with, mope about after I die until the Ghoul Lords come down and &%$ our @#% and use us for ashtrays and hood ornaments.” Rutger let his eyebrows rise way up his forehead and they stayed there awhile before he spoke. “I always knew you’d make a great speech one day.” She smiled wanly, shrugged."
There's Easter eggs galore, and they made this reading journey worth so much more than most. There are laugh out loud parts.
“"Evening, Cyn.” The soft yet slightly too smooth voice flowed from a hidden speaker. “I am Big Mo now, as they said. I have activated the plumbing and water purification systems, so you may clean up if you wish. I prefer less reproductive liquids on my floor.”"
"“Mo, all I need to know is if you can play mahjong. I’m starved for opponents since the apocalypse hit the fan.""
"“Ugh. Just ugh. Your décor suits a rough post-apocalyptic strip club, V.”"
There's a tremendous amount of humanity shown in this last part of the epic. Cyn finds out her origin story is...meh. But promises to reign pain anyway. Silverwood highlights the mundane beginnings of these new superheroes to show how anything is possible, and they are all in. She has alien surprises that really shape the conclusion...and they are unlike anything you've ever read in an alien end of the world book. And they work. My favorite part of the book was a single sentence that Cyn utters, and for me it sums the book up perfectly. "What profit a human if they gain the world but lose their soul?” It's a slightly bastardized bible verse and Silverwood slips it in while treading in true empathetic waters. With the religious background of Rutger and the brave love of Vargr, it's a pleasure to see that this threesome is so tight that they rub off on one another. Here's to a successful MFM post apocalypse.
