My review for Hot Love Inferno by Nicky Blue


Blurb: How twisted do you like your fairy tales?

A half-woman, half-cockroach fused in a bizarre gardening accident? That would be Mrs Jittery Twitch, dwelling in the shadows of our misdeeds. If in danger, you can call upon her help… all she asks is your soul as payment. But she’s just a legend, so no need to worry.

Barry Harris is a 28-year-old man, still living with his dear old mum in a little flat above a hairdresser. His obsession with Star Trek and the martial arts won’t help him when he’s forced out on a date.
And nobody knows about the weird string of events that’s about to put everyone’s lives in danger. A trio of samurai warriors and the strangest offer of help lead Barry on a perilous mission to save the day.

(This book is the second in the Prophecy Allocation series but works fine as a standalone read.)

Why you should read this book:

It explains revolutionary insights into the nature of reality that debunk the myth of free will (probably).
It proves the multiverse has only two parallel universes (depending on your criteria for what makes up proof).
It contains 50% extra innuendo-based gags than Book One in the series. Some of them might be considered funny (again this is relative).
The author achieved a heightened dynamic tension not found in other books. He was heavily constipated during its creation. There may be a link. The author is no way suggesting that this makes it better than every other book ever written.

Warning: The book is written in British English. All British slang terms are helpfully translated for the international reader, along with a short explanation of why British people are a little strange.

May be spoilers:

This is not what I normally read. I am a lover of romance stories with as many hot sex scenes as I can stand, but I was asked to read this one, so I thought I’d give it a chance. And I did give it an honest read.

Hot Love Inferno is the 2nd in the Prophecy Allocation series. I didn’t read the 1st. This has 19 chapters.
I have to say, this was a really weird read for me, and not in a bad way. It starts funny and just keeps going, and it reads fast, meaning it keeps my attention and 19 chapters feels like 10. It’s fast paced.

Writing was perfect, I loved it. I’ve never read a story with footnotes, but I have to say that I loved them. Being able to understand the words that are written helped me through it.

It was a funny read. Way out of my wheelhouse, and even though I loved it- it kept me laughing, I will be sticking with my romance stories.

There was violence, little romance-maybe? If you love sci-fi stories, you will love this one. Lots of gory, gross bits. I gagged a lot.

It was written really well. I laughed and gagged a lot. This fantasy world the author created was actually really good. So I hope you check it out. I will say that you don’t want to miss the footnotes. They help make the story.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars. You can get it here: Hot Love Inferno: A Dark Comedy Fantasy Adventure (Prophecy Allocation Book 2)
