Made for Each Other: 08/10/17

Made for Each Other  by Paul D. Storrie

Made for Each Other by Paul D. Storrie and Eldon Cowgur is the second standalone in the My Boyfriend is a Monster series. Persephone Alaska has been hit with a series of tragic accidents. Meanwhile, Maria is smitten with a gorgeous, mysterious new student at her high school — Tom.

Although I Love Him to Pieces by Evonne Tsang is about an impending zombie apocalypse, I expected the same for Made for Each Other because of the town's name. While there is a life renewal — and a bringing back the dead — it's not zombies this time.

Instead, this book takes for it's backstory, something similar to what's laid out in "At Last, the True Story of Frankenstein" by Harry Harrison and then asks, what next? Tom, then, is a modern day monster, created by the original.

The monster after years of living alone has felt the need to create a family. There's Tom and Graves — who serves as a middleman for the very shy monster. He still expects the town to turn on him as happened as had happened all those decades ago. Instead, Maria doesn't care how Tom came to be because her parents are organ donors.

The conflict isn't the horror of Tom being made from body parts. Instead, it's a tale of one creation losing control over his newest ones. It was an interesting twist that is in keeping with the monster as a sympathetic, intelligent person as written by Mary Shelley.

Three stars

Pussreboots

It's a good one. It's part of a series of graphic novels each one involving a romance between a human teenager and a paranormal teenager. Each volume is written and illustrated by a different pair.
