Rating: 4/5 stars


A virus tears across the globe, transforming its victims in nightmarish ways. As the world collapses, dark forces pull a small group of women together. 

Erin, once quiet and closeted, acquires an appetite for a woman and her brain. Why does forbidden fruit taste so good?

Savannah, a professional BDSM switch, discovers a new turn-on: committing brutal murders for her eldritch masters.

Mareva, plagued with chronic tumors, is too horrified to acknowledge her divine role in the coming apocalypse, and as her growths multiply, so too does her desperation.

Sister, Maiden, Monster is a deep dive into cosmic horror within the context of one of these most fascinating viruses I’ve ever read about. I was hooked  from the very beginning of this story starting with meeting Erin and watching as her life changed due to this new pandemic sweeping the country. What continued to keep my attention was learning about the various ways in which people reacted to the virus and what those long-term effects meant for the world. Spoiler alert: It’s freaking wild! 

This book is incredibly imaginative, creative, and wholly unique to anything else I’ve read in recent years. There’s a lot of gore and intense moments, so I highly recommend checking out the content warnings on Storygraph. If you’re up for the content, then this one is definitely worth checking out!

🎧: I started this book reading my physical copy, but switched over to the audio from NetGalley. This is one of those books that I think works great in both formats, but I’m going to push people to check out the audio more. There are three narrators and they do an incredible job bringing everything to life!

A huge thank you to Tor Nightfire for my gifted copy!
