#Review: Simon Says, by @RachelMcClellan

Title: Simon Says
Author: Rachel McClellan
Rating: 4/5 stars

Michael comes from a family of serial killers. They kill those on The List because “Simon Says” to. However, Michael has had enough and wants out.

But not doing what Simon Says may have severe consequences. (description from Goodreads)


This was a fun and creepy story. Michael and his family are basically slaves to a demons named Simon. They must kill twice a year when he meets with them, or else they’ll suffer for not doing as he says. This year, though, Michael doesn’t want to go through with it, he doesn’t believe Simon’s even real. To him, it’s all a twisted game.

Is it?

I thought the whole premise was great and I enjoyed how the story unfolded. It’s a great short read with a shocking outcome. I do wish to get more detail about a few things, but it’s not due to the lack of anything in the story. It’s just my curiosity getting the best of me…a sign of great writing, I’d say.
