As a starry-eyed child, I wanted to believe my shining prince would ride up on a white horse, present a diamond ring, and carry me away to his castle. His love would be endless and our lives would be the happily ever after all girls dreamed about. I never knew the fairytale was nothing more than a lie.
I was a good girl.
Until one night, one tiny trip, one little mistake, one moment of indiscretion.
When I fell down the rabbit hole, I stumbled into the absolute fantasy, succumbing to their whims and rituals. As their very naughty girl, I embraced the nightmare and refused to ever leave.
The Darkland is mine.
And those monsters will kneel before their one true Queen.

❝Madness infects those in love.❞
Let me start off by saying, thus far I have loved this multi-author Sinister Fairy Tale Series so much! I was really, really excited to read Madness because Alice In Wonderland is one of my favorite books/movies. Normally, I would not even review a book that I rated this low, I absolutely hate giving anyone’s book baby a “bad” rating. BUT because it’s part of the series, I couldn’t NOT review it. So, this is going to be a very short review.
Point blank, this one was just not my cup of tea…
I should have been able to read this book within a few hours, at the most a day. It took me three days. I picked it up and put it down several times. I almost didn’t finish and if it had NOT been a part of this series, I would NOT have continued reading.
I’m not going to get into details, and I’m going to try to be as nice as possible, I refuse to put down someone else’s work just because it wasn’t for me. BUT I also want to make sure I am writing MY honest review.
First off, it’s read like someone was on a crazy, acid trip and decided to write a book about what was going on in their drug hazed mind. Seriously, it is just ALL over the place. I know that Alice in Wonderland was a little… weird, but I just could not understand what in the heck was going on with this one from one minute to the next. It was like I would be in the middle of a sentence and then that sentence would just out of nowhere start talking about something totally different and never really finishing what the beginning of the sentence was about ?? I know that doesn’t make sense, but this book made no sense to me either so, that’s the only way I know how to explain it. Everything is just totally confusing and totally random.
❝In the tale of The Darkland She won it from the shrew With his big bang in her hand She made it go pew pew But this fucking love story wasn’t over Ain’t even close to through Girl! Rise the maiden from the mud Douse in princess glitter With his tragic midlife crisis He gained her surrender Forever to claim and collar Being her defender.❞
UMM…HUH!?!?! 🤷♀️🤷♀️ This was part of “The Pitch” which I assume is meant to be like a prologue of sorts or something? I have no idea, the “quote” is actually longer than this but this is just the end of it…
Secondly, the sexy scenes… Madness if FILLED with a whole lot of sex you guys and usually I’m ALLL for it… but even most of those are just WEIRD!
❝I go wild beneath his control, soaking around his shaft, and slightly rocking against his pillar trapped within my sanctuary.❞
Umm… hmm… okay. 🤦♀️🤷♀️
Madness drove me absolutely mad… and it was NOT in a good way. There was no real “story” behind it all. I mean it was… but it REALLY wasn’t. Even the ending where I somewhat “thought” that things would come together and actually make sense of the whole mess, didn’t. I was even more confused!!!
I am not familiar with any of Kailee Reese Samuels‘s work so I’m not going to hold this one against her and will definitely check out something else that she’s released, but this one was a complete dud for me.
F.Y.I – I absolutely hate that I had to write this review and I have waited as long as possible to post my review as to hopefully not interfere with the author’s ratings.

⭐️⭐️ – Again, I normally would not even leave a review for a book that I rated this low (I usually won’t review anything less than three stars) and the ONLY reason I’m reviewing Madness is because it’s part of the Sinister Fairy Tale Series. This one was just way too weird and way too confusing for me to even attempt to enjoy. Not my cup of tea… Looking forward to Siren though!
🔥🔥 – There is a whole lot of steamy scenes in Madness, I’d almost say to many sexy scenes actually and even those were just confusing and weird.
🌪 ℂ𝕝𝕚𝕗𝕗𝕙𝕒𝕟𝕘𝕖𝕣 𝕎𝕒𝕣𝕟𝕚𝕟𝕘 – No cliffhanger, although I STILL have no freakin clue what happened or what ACTUALLY went on. So who knows, maybe there was and I just didn’t get it. 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
⚠️ 𝕋𝕣𝕚𝕘𝕘𝕖𝕣 𝕎𝕒𝕣𝕟𝕚𝕟𝕘 – There are difficult subjects that could be considered triggers.
