Freak is a short little wind-up Prequel for the Highborn Asylum Series. Usually, I feel like there isn’t enough of a bite to chomp on with these novelettes, but this was a brilliant nosh.
Violet, known as Letty, is a patient at Highborn Asylum, where she can hear the walls hum and fellow patient Olivander follows her like an eerie shadow. I kept picturing Olivander as a Gerard Way-esque character, and then Guy is introduced, and I’m further sunk because I envisioned an Andy Black-like sort–you can see I have a type.
Highborn Asylum isn’t just any psychiatric facility; there is something very shady of the paranormal bent here, especially since they try to hold and control a witch with a harem. After all, they have to keep wiping Letty’s memory and telling her that the walls don’t make noises.
I can’t wait for this series. I’m hoping it lives up to this nosh.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advance copy of this book.
About Elizabeth Dunlap:
Writing books should never be about making money or shelling out a paper cut-out story we’ve read a thousand times. Writing is about the passion. About telling a story worth telling, with characters that grow and change before your eyes. It’s about letting the story take you places you never thought possible. Expanding your view of a tired subject and making it brand new. You can find all that and more with Elizabeth Dunlap’s books, i.e. MY books! Come sit, stay awhile, and discover the worlds I create.
