Our Review

I have always loved the unusually complicated yet fascinating friction between Shawnee and My Mayhem, so I was a little surprised to find this relationship floundering after the death of Mayhem’s wife in this fourth book in the Mayhem series.

On top of this disturbing situation, a far more horrific threat has turned up, so trouble was coming at Shawnee from every angle and because of this, the story is far more tense than usual. Mysticism and murder combine to double the enjoyment of reading and I had trouble putting it down to get some sleep!

Trying hard not to reveal any spoilers, readers get the chance to see Mr Mayhem like you have never seen him before!

Myths, magic and mayhem, what more could you possibly want?

I have been a fan of Mr Mayhem, the evil antagonist in Sue Coletta’s books ever since reading the first book in this series, and I have been dying to get my hands on this book for absolute months. Life, and just about everything else has conspired to keep me under the thumb for long enough.

Somehow, I am going to do what I want, in the book reading department at least, for I am in the process of creating a bad guy of my own and need all the inspiration I can get!

Amazon Review for I am Mayhem

Author Sue Coletta keeps you nailed to the attention cross in this new release. I Am Mayhem, Book 4 in her Mayhem Series, is her best-yet in this run of top-notch thriller writing. Sue is an absolute master of the “Deep Point of View” technique that separates her work from the rest of the class. Her dialogue is also spot-on and riveting. I don’t want to drop a spoiler, but the title might just tell you something about the mysterious protagonist. Go ahead and find out – if you can handle suspense at its finest!
