I love a good dirty rockstar book. I love a good UK based book. Double bubble this book has both. This is a quickie novella to pave the way for the big show - A Boy In The Band. The boy, is Blake, brooding lead singer of The Flood. He is in emotional pain from the death of his best friend Jamie to a drugs overdose. He blames Jamie's girlfriend, Sylvie. Beautiful Sylvie with eyes like honey and a penchant for rockstars. He hates her and lusts after her in equal measures.
The novella is set one year prior to ABITB. There is so much unsaid, that I need to know.
God damn no release date yet! Jumping up and down in anticipation. I can smell the carrot.
Great build up.
Ok so this is the prequel novella to the first book of this series.
This book is a little maudlin, its definitely not a happy go lucky Sunday afternoon read.
My overwhelming feeling having read this novella is one of depression and grief. I feel incredibly sorry for both Blake and Sylvie because someone they love has died.
Unfortunately for me that’s as far as my empathy stretches.
I didn’t like either Blake or Sylvie and I felt like neither of them showed any particularly redeeming qualities.
Blake seems to be spiralling into an alcohol induced haze where he uses sex and women as a crutch to stop him from relapsing into his drug habit.
Sylvie, well she just seems to be sexing her grief away! I don’t want to call her a slut because even from this short novella it’s obvious that she uses sex as a way of deflecting from her serious underlying issues.
These broken and despairing characters are well written and I definitely felt the pain and grief they were feeling.
I think if I could have found anything endearing or relatable in either of these characters I could have totally got on board with this broken and seriously dysfunctional pairing. Unfortunately I couldn’t and instead I focussed on poor Jamie and the fact that this creative young guy was driven to suicide which honestly just made me really sad.
I finished reading this feeling a lot depressed but still intrigued to see how this “love” story would play out. I went searching for the next and first full length novel in the series only to discover that it has not yet been released even though this novella came out back in 2014.
18 months is a VERY long delay between books and honestly I doubt my intrigue will last long enough to wait for the next book to be released at some point in the future.
Death of a Rockstar gets 3 stars from me.
This is fantastic sneak peak into what to expect for The Boy in the Band, and I truely cannot wait to read it!
The story starts with a death, quite a public one at that. It then turns into a love/hate story between Sylvie, the dead mans on/off girlfriend, and Blake, his best friend.
Even though it is a novella it has a lot packed into it. There is strong language throughout but I feel it does work well due to the storyline.
It is a quick read but one I absolutely loved.
The story ends with the first few chapters of The Boy In The Band and I cannot wait to read it as this novella has certainly set the scene very well. Bring it on!
The story has a good round feel to it, its how you would imagine a Rock Life to be, raw, raunchy, wild and explicit. I LOVED IT.
This is only the prequel, so if this is anything to go by, then I can't wait for the complete series to come my way!
