Today is my stop on the blog tour for Slay on Tour and I am here today with a review of this amazing book!
Title: Slay on Tour Author: Kim Curran Publisher: Usborne Published: 10th January 2019 Pages: 336 Format: Paperback Source:: Review Copy from Publisher Add It:Amazon UKGoodreads. Summary:SLAY are BACK…and this time they’re headed to Tokyo to track down another hellraising demon. When they’re invited on tour with a super-cool band of holographic girls, SLAY find themselves whisked off around Japan – until strange things start happening on their tour train. Suddenly it seems it’s not just SLAY’s fans following their every move…
There has yet to be a book written by Kim Curran that I have not wholeheartedly enjoyed, and Slay on Tour is no exception. I will admit to being both excited and anxious about reading this book. Excited because I really enjoyed Slay, anxious in case this second book did not live up to the excellence of the first. Fortunately, that was not a problem with this book. This book was just as exciting, fun, and intense as the first book was and I highly recommend it.
One of the things that I really liked about the book was how as a reader, you were aware that something sinister was happening but knew that the characters weren’t quite able to put everything together because as a group, they did not have all the pieces of the puzzle. Thus the reader is left urging them to work it out before it’s too late. This added an intensity and addictive feel to the book as you race through the pages trying to figure out if it will all work out or not. The whole plot was very interesting and quite literally kept you on your toes throughout.
In Slay we are introduced to the characters for the first time. Characters that, figuratively, flew off the page as I was reading. Fortunately in Slay on Tour, the characters continue to fly off the page and I really loved reading their dynamic relationships with each other too. A few new characters are also thrown into the mix too but each one is very interesting and fascinating to read about. Kim definitely knows how to create realistic and believable characters that you can’t help but root for.
All in all, this is a very good book, that I very much enjoyed. If you love books that follow bands, or books about demons – or especially both! – than this is a series that you do not want to miss out on! Kim Curran has created a fun, but also serious series that is full of adventure, intrigue and intensity that will have you hooked from page one. But don’t just take my word for it, follow the other bloggers on the tour to find out more reasons you should read this fantastic series!
About the Author
Kim was born in Dublin and moved to London when she was seven. She got her first typewriter when she was eight, had a poem she wrote about a snail published in a magazine when she was nine, and that was it – Kim was hooked on writing.
Because she never thought she’d actually be able to make a living as a writer, she decided she needed a trade to fall back on. So, naturally, she went to Sussex University to study philosophy.
While Kim’s plan of being paid big bucks to think deep thoughts never quite worked out, she did land a job as a junior copywriter with an ad agency a week after graduating. She’s worked in advertising ever since, specialising in writing for videogames.
