2022 Book Review: A Wish Too Dark and Kind

A Wish Too Dark and Kind by ML Blackbird

A Horror, 2021 by Little Blackbird LLC, 370 Pages 

What I Didn’t Like:

  • Too many characters are introduced too quickly. I got confused early and never fully sorted out who was who, honestly.
  • Not horror. Horror familiar characters but not horror. I actually think if you go into this expecting high fantasy you’ll enjoy it better.
  • The audiobook narrator attempts different voices. Many of them are delivered in a sort of stage whisper, making it very difficult to get the volume right on your audiobook. This didn’t affect my review, but it’s worth noting.

What I Did Like:

  • Interesting premise. A bunch of immortals are invited to an event without really knowing why sounds like a fascinating version of Clue. 
  • Cover is beautiful. 

Who Should Read This One:

  • Readers who follow complicated storylines and large casts may enjoy this one more than I did. 

My Rating: 2 Stars

  • For me this one needed tightening to bring it all together.
