I am ready for the story to continue in the next book. I'm curious to learn more about Colt's original family and what new changes are in store for him. I want to know how Colt and Jason will make things work. And I'm anxious for Ronnie to find happiness. I really came to care about these people, and I loved this book.
That was until the night of his 25th birthday when he uncovered, quite by accident in a gisley encounter, that he was really a Ghoul. Finding it hard to adjust to life in the Kinship and keeping his new secret from his childhood friend now boyfriend,Jason. Ghoulish takes us through the journey of him adjusting to the destiny that he has fallen into as well as trying to protect the family of human friendly ghouls and the man that he loves.
When I first started reading Ghoulish, I found that I was drawn into the story rather quickly. Kat’s writing is amazing as is her character development. The world in which she writes in is quite descriptive. There is quite a bit of action and twists that will keep you hanging on the edge of your seat. There were times when I wanted to smack Jason around then there were times when I wanted to do the same with Colt. I also found it quite interesting in this book that the dynamics of the Kindred and the politics of the Ghoul community seemed to mirror the human counterpart.
There were a few unanswered questions though as well as me wanting to know more about the family who adopted Colt. They seemed to not be involved after Colt was found by the human friendly ghoul family.
All in all, Ghoul was a wonderful read and I hope that there will be a sequel to this book.
Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5
Colt Jager never knew what happened to the parents who abandoned him, and he never cared--until he inherited their ghoulish secret.
Raised as a human who had no idea he was anything but a blue-collar construction worker until the night of his 25th birthday, Colt finds it hard to adjust to life in the Kinship, a hidden world woven discreetly into human society.
After a grisly encounter with his true nature, Colt meets a family of human-friendly ghouls who teach him that there's a way to be inhuman without being inhumane. But things get complicated when he realizes that the "wolf attack" responsible for killing his boyfriend's brother was actually committed by a ghoul on the hunt.
When an elite family of especially monstrous ghouls called Alphas threatens the man he loves, Colt will have to lie to Jason to keep him safe. Can a predator ever truly be a hero, or will the man he loves become his prey?
What an unexpected treat this story turned out to be! A first release by Kat Bellamy, Ghoulish revolves around a main character that's yes, a ghoul in love with a human, not that he's aware of it right at the very beginning of the story. Now ghouls are not something I normally find as main characters in my LGBTQIA romances or any romances for that matter in fiction.
Where do I find them? In superb anime like Tokyo Ghoul (if you love anime' and haven't found this series, it's a must) or, ok, that's about it. I can't think of any outside of anime or Manga. So for Bellamy to make this work (and they did), they needed to create an empathetic character, a group of support characters we can also care about, do a terrific job with their universe building, and weave in a romance and a suspenseful plot.
Check, check, check, check, and check. All accomplished.
Not bad for a first work. In fact, this story had me in it's grip from the moment Colt discovers his true nature. From then on, it's a "hang onto your seat, flip that page, stay riveted to the story" sort of tale. I became so immersed in Colt's life, his deadly situations (really no pun intended), even his romance with Jason, that I was unaware of the time flying by. It was 2 am when I finished and I was heartily sorry to see these characters go.
Several things here. There is a fairly large cast of characters but not too many that a reader can't keep track of them. The world building isn't complete but as there's a sequel coming, I won't fault the author on that, hoping the new novel is going to fill in the blanks as the title (The Kinship) seems to infer. This is a HFN and honestly, the romance sort of takes a backseat, or at least slides a bit to the side, to all the other marvelous narrative work going on here. It's a thriller, laden with suspense, but still manages to be full of tons of heartwarming elements and love. Huh, how about that! And that's on the ghoul side!
Anyway. Any details would just spoil this so none are given. Read it! The characters are great, the writing flows quickly, the scenes are vivid, and the story will keep you on the edge of your seat. Plus I thought the ending worked because there's a sequel coming and hopefully, there's a younger character I need to spend more time with. And we still have some mysteries to unfold. Yes, I can see this as a series to successfully run on past the sequel. Now I'm anxiously waiting the next book out. Why not pick this one up and catch up to me! I highly recommend it! Ghouls in love are so much fun!
Cover art is eye-catching even if that model is getting to be a bit overworked.
Colt and Jason are in love. Colt started out as an abandoned child. He found a loving family and best friend, soon to be boyfriend . Then at age 25 he went through a second puberry and became a full fledged Ghoul.
The story is different, sometimes simplistic, yet it stays interestinf. This was a pick up and not put down until finished kind of book. Now, if only, Jason can domesticate Colt.
