Review-Evil Thing

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/ 5 stars ⁣

Synopsis from GoodReads:

From her lonely childhood, to her iconic fashion choices, to that fateful car crash (you know the one), Cruella tells all in this marvelous memoir of a woman doomed. Even the cruelest villains have best friends, true loves, and daring dreams. Now it's Cruella's turn to share hers.

This latest novel by the author of the wildly popular and darkly fascinating Villains series brings readers a tale told by the Evil Thing herself-a tale of the complicated bonds of female friendship, of mothers and daughters, and of burning, destructive desire.

After all, nothing is as simple as black and white.

My Thoughts-Spoiler Free

Dahlings, first of all I LOVE this series. Now the first six books in this series are in order and told a little differently than this story.

But this book is Cruella's memoir told to us by Cruella herself. Ms. De Vil is one of the best villains out there with her opulent personality and famous furs. Serena truly captured her character. It was so much fun reading this in Cruella's voice.

In this story she is best friends to Anita and I loved that part of it. She has a love for Anita that was pure but thanks to Cruella's villainous mother and her insane loyalty to her mom, her relationship with Anita ended in bitterness.

There were times I truly felt sorry for Ms. De Vil and then there were times where I wanted to shake her. Cruella is dangerously loyal to her mother, who is absolute poison to her daughter. It was both captivating and heartbreaking watching Cruella snap into the persona we know her to be. She is a villain after all.

But what struck me was how much of an influence parents can have over their children. The manipulation and the child's strong desire to please can be dangerous, and unfortunately for Cruella it did not end well.

Great read and I highly recommend.
