This was a fabulous read that was both sexually arousing and mysterious. It was an interesting twist on the Jekyll/Hyde classic. In the next installment I would like to see more about Blythe and her relationship with Hyde when it comes into conflict with a person that Blythe truly loves. This was a great read and I’d recommend this for anyone that is interested in Erotic Horror. I can not wait for the next one.
Author Kindra Sowder provides a nuanced, believable portrait of Blythe McAlister. She is a high living socialite with a taste for the finest of fine things. One pictures her as having every hair in place and wearing stylish, immaculate clothing at every hour of the day and night. She obsesses over details and places high expectations on her friends and associates. Just the sort of personality traits that I would expect to be linked to a person who gives a new meaning to the the word "control".
Hello, my Name Is" is the first installment in an intended series about Miss Hyde. It does a good job of introducing us to her, her friends and employer, her soundproofed penthouse suite and her life style. Miss Hyde claims two victims in this initial episode: the first an anonymous "handsome man with the body with the body of a god" who she does away with without much regret: in fact, she does not even recall his name. The reader suspects that Blythe has so little emotional attachment to victim number one that she might have done the deed herself, without the intercession of the evil Miss Hyde. After all, she had a grudge against him for forcing her to cuddle after sex, a proclivity she detests and which in this case caused her to awaken with a crick in her neck. The second victim, Dax, was a different story. Blythe liked Dax, would have preferred to have him escape her black widow's lair and maybe even would have enjoyed a second date with him. Blythe tried to intercede in his favor with Miss Hyde, but this was a struggle for control that she knew from the start she would not win. Blythe's only hope of retaining control was on those occasions when Miss Hyde chose not to intervene. Unfortunately for Dax, Miss Hyde did take an interest in him, which sealed his fate.
"Hello My Name Is" is very well written with a polished style that is well suited to the story. It is uninhibited: we experience the sex graphically, and the murders which involve the removal of body parts with sharp instruments, equally graphically. Graphically but not gratuitously: the story demands that these scenes be portrayed. The composite character Blythe/Miss Hyde's general MOA is to sneak a soporific into the drink of a victim so that he can be carried in an unconscious state into the soundproofed dissection room. In Dax's case Blythe/Miss Hyde simply choked him out before transporting him. Miss Hyde gives Blythe preternatural strength when she chooses to get involved, and the intended victim doesn't stand a chance, even though Blythe's victims are large, powerfully built athletic men. It is an intriguing reversal of the more conventional male versus female serial killing in which the man exercises his greater physical strength to subdue the woman.
It will be interesting to see where author Kindra Sowder takes this series. There are many things left unexplained in this first short introduction. It is a very promising start, and my interest and curiosity will bring me back for more when the later titles are released. I for one would like to see an episode in which a male serial killer ends up in the black widow's lair.
Kindra Sowder did an amazing job, of putting a new spin on an old classic. I loved Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and the way with which she approached their story, from a different perspective was just awesome. To have a two sided coin, and have them be aware of it, was nothing short of amazing. And the way the sides coexist, with one protecting the other from the more gory of their endeavors. This retelling, plays with your emotions, and you get involved in the life of one character, with two sides. I wholeheartedly recommend this to those who like Erotica, and Horror. It is a good read. Well Done Kindra Sowder, well done.
