Review: Hot Pterodactyl Boyfriend by Alan Cumyn
Sheils is very happy with her perfectly controlled life. She’s smart, powerful, the Student Body Chair, and has a doting boyfriend. What more could a girl ask for? But everything changes when the first-ever interspecies transfer student, a pterodactyl (what?) named Pyke, enrolls at her school. There’s something about him – something primal – that causes the students to lose control whenever he’s around.
When Pyke’s band plays at the Autumn Whirl dance, his music sends the whole school into a literal frenzy. The next day no one can even remember what happened at the dance, but Shiels learns that she danced far too long with Pyke, her nose has turned purple, and she may have done … something that she shouldn’t have…
Who is this winged boy, with incredible pecs and rock-star talent that has swooped in on her carefully constructed life?
I won this book…so I gave it a try thinking it was likely to be a paranormal/comedy but the bad writing, and slow pace meant I couldn’t scrape past the 60page marker.
I’m not one to give up on a book lightly but this is a pretty darn painful read. And even by paranormal/fantasy standards completely unrealistic.
Thank you to Maximum Pop Books for this book via one of their competitions unfortunately not for me though.
