I don't usually leave reviews because I just can't find the time, and even more rarely bad reviews, but this book is kinda terrible. I thought it would be goofy silly fun (I mean, look at the title and cover!) but shame on me for not reading content warnings in advance, but on this site the issues I had here wouldn't be covered by the tags. 

It seems like it tries to have some serious plot elements and character backstory but the characters are so stilted and their conversations so awkward. The FMC does not act like I'd expect someone with her history or personality to act most of the time. I almost DNFd but it was so short I realized I was nearly at the end and finished only to roll my eyes at the wrap up. 

Spice wise, it's not nearly as fun and interesting as I was hoping. A lot of opportunities to do something interesting were left on the table. Yeah, he can detach the thing, but then he has zero sensation in it? ... alright? Also the aspects of cthulu biology focused on heavily in the series were serious mood killers.
