Teaser


A whisper came beside Tony. Jenn glanced back at the porch at her sister. The moonlight haloed May, and she looked like a midnight angel sitting in the chair beside Jenn’s. May rocked and rocked, but the chair didn’t make a sound. She was silent these days, at peace. It was what Jenn had always wanted for her.


 

My Opinion

The second book of the Supergirls series finds survivor Jenn at a remote cabin, together with two kids. An intruder threatens to destroy this idyll.

With Night Without Stars, Mav Skye presents the second instalment of the Supergirls series. It is a very unusual read. Jenn, Tina and Tony each have to face their own inner demons; May still watches over Jenn. Mav Skye once again paints a pretty clear picture of the protagonists’ minds – considering what they have gone through it may be disturbing the respective reader’s mind nonetheless. Night Without Stars is entertaining à la Tarantino with more than a shade of horror, a fast read, appealing not only to Tarantino fans.

This book is the second instalment of a quite different horror/suspense series.

About the author

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 editing at the almighty Pulp Metal Magazine.
She adores puppies, pirates, skulls, red hots, Tarantino movies and yes, Godzilla.
Especially Godzilla.
