About Relative Evil

(Taken from back cover of book)
“Piercing black eyes surrounded by a pool of pink, meandering strands of crimson glaring at me with so much hate.  I didn’t understand how anyone could feel that way for another person.”

Relative Evil is based on the true events that occurred in the life of the author.  A na├»ve young girl raised to believe family could never really hurt one another, but to then be tragically brought to the realization that evil exists and will stop at nothing to destroy those in his way to get what he’s after. Her trust in a strong family bond and the goodness of people is shattered.  Forced to grow up quickly and take matters into her own hands in order to break the spell her parents were under and keep her family safe.

My thoughts on Relative Evil

This is a rather quick, fast-paced read and, aside from a few editorial mistakes, it is well written.  The author does a great job of drawing the reader in and developing the scenes to make you feel as though you are right there.  For those of you who follow my book reviews, this book is much darker than the books I typically review, but I would still recommend it to any adult who enjoys biographical stories, stories of good overcoming evil or stories with severely dysfunctional family members. 

About Milena Armstrong

Milena was born in Rochester, New York, and still resides there with her husband and children.

I do have to share that I used to live down the street from Milena and I attended the same high school as she and her husband did.  It is neat to personally know a published author
