Entangled Teen

Five years ago, Fiona was just a kid. But everything changed the night the Pit Viper came to town. Sure, he rid the quiet, idyllic suburb of Hamm of its darkest problems. But Fiona witnessed something much, much worse from Hamm’s adults when they drove him away.

And now, the Pit Viper is back.

Fiona’s not just a kid anymore. She can handle the darkness she sees in the Pit Viper, a DJ whose wicked tattoos, quiet anger, and hypnotic music seem to speak to every teen in town…except her. She can handle watching as each of her friends seems to be overcome, nearly possessed by the music. She can even handle her unnerving suspicion that the DJ is hell-bent on revenge.

But she’s not sure she can handle falling in love with him. 

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: First up I'm going to point out that this is definitely a more mature YA story. The content from the start is not really suitable for younger YA readers.

On to the story: A simple act of kindness can go a long way! Think Pied Piper meets superstar DJ. Pit Viper is back in town (or is he?) and everyone is drawn to the bad boy DJ's music, even Fiona's boyfriend Horace. Fiona is confused. Is it the same guy from years ago? What does he wants? How does he seem to be able to hypnotise everybody? So many questions.

The plot actually reminded me of an episode of Grimm where a DJ uses a pied piper rat trance-ish vibe (it makes more sense when you watch it).

Fiona decides to uncover the truth and find out what Pit Viper is up to, but finds herself being drawn in by him instead of just his music.

I loved the revenge style plot and the fairy tale nods - I do like a retelling done well! There's music, magic, corruption and mystery - what's not to like? I'm a rock gal at heart hello musical references.

I enjoyed the romance and the twists even if it was a little darker than I expected, but in a good way...

4 Stars in my Sky!
