There’s a girl screaming at the top of a hill,
Burdened by a duty she was born to fulfill.
There’s a quiet killer lurking nearby,
Watching as she wishes only to die.
She’s tasked by her mother to marry a man,
Until the demon from hell puts a wrench in the plan.
Their fates will twine in inconceivable ways.
But where one goes, the other cannot stay.
How could she fall for such a man, you ask?
For the girl with no heart, it was the easiest task.
Ooooh this story had me wondering which way it was going the entire time. When you think Sol is going right, he’s actually veering left. When you think that Moira is going sweet, she’s most definitely going sassy.
Insolent is a dark fairy tale retelling and it fits extremely well with the others in the collection. Dark, mysterious men paired with cold and sometimes cruel women. Keeping me on the edge of my seat is hard to do because I can usually figure out the direction of the story. Not Insolent … it kept me guessing and on my toes.
This is my first read by Cynthia Rodriguez, but it will not be my last. I look forward to a new adventure with her!

Cynthia hates writing her own bio. In her down-time, you can find her watching movies, ranging anywhere from classic to action flicks (she has a weakness for Marvel adaptations), and reading any novel she can get her hands on.
She loves hearing from her readers! You can reach Cynthia here ...
