And demons, they are like the anti-matter of the soul, on their plane there's no love or caring, their norm is to hate and rend and tear things down. And they especially hate people.

Review

Evelina 4 picks up where Evelina 3 left off. Evelina continues her rampage through Malta searching for her daughter, Cairo, leaving a trail of bodies and gore in her wake to send a message to the Trapani gang that screams "tell me where she is, or pay the price!" In the meantime, Cairo and her friend, Bernard, make a daring escape from Trapani's gang in Malta and plot a course to Crete. Richard is still stuck in Ghost Town with his new friend, Caro, uncovering "Just-Dan's" intent and avoiding rebels. Susan and her mentor/voodoo teacher, Anaya, are preparing for another battle against Boss Bellini. With the help of a goddess, Susan believes that she has a chance against the human turned demon.

If you enjoy gore, action, and adventure with a paranormal/supernatural twist, then you will find Evelina 4: "Stabby Kinky" irresistible!

As with Evelina 3, Pearsall has made a bold choice in formatting the plot. Rather than using chapters to transition to different characters' perspectives, he has chosen to use what I consider sub-chapters to keep readers updated on each character. While some readers may find these frequent transitions distracting, I thought it was a unique method of moving the plot forward whilst keeping readers from being tempted to skip over a chapter to see how their favorite characters are faring.

Readers who enjoy vampire novels, but are looking for a little something different, may find what they are looking for in Evelina. She's more of a psychic vampire than your typical blood drinker; she feeds on the dark emotions that people experience when they are dying brutally at her hands. Spilling blood helps her feed, even though she doesn't actually drink the blood.

Like the rest of the series, Evelina 4 doesn't leave readers who enjoy action with their horror disappointed. Pearsall provides readers with just enough action to whet their appetites while adding adventure to captivate readers as they follow the protagonists to different lands and meet new characters.

While the title makes this book sound highly sexual, it really isn't. I've read romance and contemporary fiction that made me squirm with embarrassment, and that didn't happen with this book. If you are looking for horror that is unique, unpredictable, unexpected, and quirky; I think that Evelina 4: "Stabby Kinky" is the book for you. If you prefer more traditional, predictable, and staid horror; you might want to read something else.
