    1. Now my followers and friends will know that I am not a fan of Vampire fiction, however I decided to think outside the box, live on the edge, stretch myself and try a little taster to see what the fuss is all about. It was not that bad of an experience. Whatever next! So yes, shocking I know, I read a Vampire book.Let's face it, Twilight really put the whole vampire thing on the map, shame really as way back years ago I remember when Anne Rice and her books featuring the Vampire Lestat were the n [...]

    2. (A digital copy was provided to me by the author John Hennessy in exchange for an honest review) Thank you so much, sir John!When I was given this copy, I did not hesitate to read it immediately because I really have a penchant for Vampire-themed books. And my verdict for this novel? It's totally good!What made me appreciate this novella is that it's unlike anything I've read. It's not a typical vampire-romance story. It's different and refreshing. It's a story about three siblings who are somew [...]

    3. William Francis "Bill" Nighy, an English actor, has quoted about the 'vampires' as:The phenomenon of vampires have always appealed to me. Everyone kind of likes a vampire story because it almost could be true. Once again, my very dear friend and my favorite English author, John Hennessy, has come up with a tale about a vampire folklore, in his latest release, Murderous Little Darlings which happens to be the very first book, in yet another thrilling series named, A Tale of Vampires. Synopsis:Thr [...]

    4. At first reading this book, it began with an air of mystery and intrigue the first chapter or two and then I started to get lost in what was really happening even who was speaking. It was hard to know which direction the story was going and I felt it pulling my mind in too many ways to absorb what was going on. I almost folded in reading this book. But, I decided not to and continued reading. After reading further, I figured out what this book is about at least my own interpretation of it and I [...]

    5. First of all, I want to thank my good friend John Hennessy, for sending me the pdf copy of this incredible series.I've been a fan of vampire genre since I was a kid and I've always liked watching and reading stories about them even the legend of Dracula.So when the author of this book asked me if I wanted to have a copy of his first book,I didn't hesitate to say yes(of course!)I started reading this book this morning,and I couldn't believe that I finished it in just one sitting.It's because once [...]

    6. Three siblings. Orphaned early. Left to make their own way in the world, which they do, by feeding on others. At least two of them seem pretty convinced that they are vampires, one of them is not. The game is on. Either the third one joins the other two in the hunt or live in the fear of being hunted. The locals call them the Murderous Little Darlings. They have the faces of angels, but possess the very souls of the Devil. How will this chase end? Who would survive and in what form? I totally lo [...]

    7. 3.5 (will round up on )MURDEROUS LITTLE DARLINGS is the first in a Young Adult series of vampire novellas from author John Hennessey. When I think of the word "vampires", either the image of Dracula, or--sadly--some sparkly teenagers, comes immediately to mind. I am very pleased to say that what I read here was very unique in both its presentation, and the age of its very young main characters.We meet the triplets, Marcus, Rocco, and Juliana while Marcus--the oldest by an hour--appears to immedi [...]

    8. OMG, Rocco sucks the blood, then sucks his thumb, and my sick little mind smiles at the picture in my head, as I read about these six year old triplets who go on a murderous rampage, and Marcus knows no one will suspect them, because they are only six years old when the first murder happens…BUT, to really make this a great story, I think John Hennessy needs to make it a full length novel, thus filling in the details and plot holes that left me wanting…RE.To see more visit fundinmental

    9. short and powerful First of all a huge thanks to the author for asking me to read his books and trusting me to share my honest views on his books.Now, this is the second book that i am reading from his list of books.So after the author asked me to read his book, i gladly placed an order for the book and it took almost 15 days to finally reach and when i finally opened the parcel, i nearly fainted. i was shocked to see that the book i had waited for ages to get, turned out to be just 64 pages. ye [...]

    10. Murderous Little Darlings is a great, fun read, with some real shocks along the way and a cracking finish. I read this quickly!!!!*Shivers*

    11. As a growing fan of the vampire genre of books, this is the first novella I've read in any genre as I tend to like to get immersed into a good book, rather than see it whizz by at break-neck speed yes, I do actually slow down when I read who would have guessed?The start of this book invokes the images of the three siblings Marcus (the eldest and 'the boss') Rocco (Middle sibling and coerced brother) and of course the instantly intriguing Juliana (the baby sister, as it were) . By sheer chance, t [...]

    12. Murderous Little Darlings by John Hennessy Review:Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author and Booklover Catlady Publicity in return for a fair and honest review. Many thanks!A short, spine-tingling adventure with a surprise twist! That's how this blogger would describe the story Murderous Little Darlings byJohn Hennessy.This short story follows three siblings, all caught up in a web of intrigue as the eldest brother, Marcus, believes that they are vampires,destined to hun [...]

    13. Marcus, Rocco and Juliana are 9-year-old triplets who lost their mother in childbirth. They are angelic to look at and draw cute comments from people who see them for the first time. They are not what they seem. In fact, they are struggling to discover who they are. Marcus is the eldest of the triplets by an hour and their leader. He says they are vampires and must feed on humans and kill them. Rocco is the middle child and easily swayed. He hates being in thrall to his older brother, but cannot [...]

    14. well this is certainly a good start to a series! a very interesting angle, usually it's the 20 something sparkly vampires that dominate the book market, but this one, strips it all back to the basic premise of Vampires, bloodlust. The juxtaposition of innocent children and violent killers is played out amazingly across the pages, I really enjoyed this novella, highly recommend it. I'm off to find more from the author now, so my short point said long summary of this novella? grab it and devour it [...]

    15. A short book perfectly told about a trio of vampires and I really enjoyed it from start to finish. I whizzed through this book and while I am not normally a vampire book fan as such, John Hennessey did the genre proud. I always look for originality, pace, and great characterisation in a book. Murderous Little Darlings scored on all counts. The story is simple enough but cleverly contrived to catch the reader out which I liked. Five stars well deserved. You can't go far wrong with this clever lit [...]

    16. From Nosferatu to shiny Edward Cullen, the tale of the vampire has been done to death, yet Hennessy manages to find a new twist and it works well. The action begins with the opening scene and holds you until an ending that flips it all on its head. The Murderous Little Darlings who are Julianna, Marcus, and Rocco are off to a wonderful start in this fast-paced series.

    17. I guess we can expect the unexpected from John Hennessy! Murderous Little Darlings had so many twists and sharp turns that I was left with my head spinning and this strange thirst for…more!Three siblings, are they all vampires or not? Is Marcus, the oldest triplet truly a vampire from birth? Is Rocco fighting the urge? Is Juliana denying her heritage? Or is there something completely different going on that will change everything for these three? You want a fresh look at YA vampires? Looking t [...]

    18. Creepy Little Kiddies . . .When I think of vampires, walking-dead, bloodthirsty creatures come to mind. Creatures that shun the light, the cross, holy water, and—yes—garlic. Lethal beings with a hypnotic, and often sexual, allure. A stereotypical image that usually appears on the screen and in books. Vampirism done to death. A pun, maybe, but you get the idea.John Hennessy’s “Murderous Little Darlings” was a pleasant surprise. In this story, the world of vampires takes on a refreshing [...]

    19. Murderous Little Darlings is a darling little novella that I had trouble getting out of my head. The ending didn't disappoint and left a nagging hunger to continue with book two of "A Tale of Vampires Series,” knowing that more twists and unpredictability in the plot will unfold as well. An enjoyable read that follows sympathetic characters of three eleven-year-old into eternity triplets, one girl, and two boys completely differing in personalities, ideals, and methods of survival as vampires [...]

    20. Most vampire stories either are about blood and guts and totally turn my stomach, or a sweet tale of romance. But this once was so much different. The tale is about three siblings, who believe they are vampires. Marcus the oldest of the three, embraced the idea of being a blood sucker, as did his sister Juliana, Rocco fought it until Marcus broke him down. The story is not the typical vampire stories we read now a days, about romance and love. It’s dark and at times violent, but it also could [...]

    21. I saw that this was a novella about vampires, and decided on the basis of the cover, the blurb and the title that it was probably going to be an amusing one. I am not an aficionado of vampire fiction ordinarily, but this lured me in. I was suitably rewarded. Murderous Little Darlings is in no way your average vampire tale. It tells the story of triplets who have the faces of angels but “the very souls of the Devil”. Marcus is the ringleader, the dominant triplet, who ‘believes he’s a vam [...]

    22. This is the vampire story of orphaned Juliana and her two older brothers, Marcus, the eldest and Rocco. They were angel looking kids. TCristiane70heir souls were black, but for Juliana’s.Since they were children they were prone to be the bad neighbor kids pranks,until they killed an old woman throwing a rock on her skull.They started to be called Murderous Little Darlings.But now they were not kids anymore. And they didn’t play, they killed, as vampires they were.Well, the two brothers did, [...]

    23. Is it wrong to think this story was adorable? I mean, it's about a sociopath little boy and his two siblings. Marcus is the oldest of the three and his joy for killing makes him seem psychotic. He thinks he is a vampire, a fact he has convinced his brother Rocco of. They play at being bloodsuckers by killing and drinking the blood of their victims. Julianna is the youngest and the one who resists Marcus's hold the most. For this, he torments her, locking her in a wardrobe to keep her from interf [...]

    24. This novella is ideal if you're into vampires and you happen to have about an hour to kill.Murderous Little Darlings is a promising start to this series. "Oh yes, she remembered what the locals called them now. Murderous Little Darlings. They had the faces of angels, but possessed the very souls of the Devil."This first novella is about triplets. Marcus, who very much embraces the concept of being a vampire. Rocco, who falls somewhere in the middle, being reluctant but willing to feed on blood. [...]

    25. Loved this wonderful novella, and the engaging way talented author John Hennessy describes vampire' triplets, Marcus, Rocco and Juliana. They are quite different in many ways, giving the reader the excitement of choice. Do we favor Marcus who is truly a vampire or the reluctant Rocco who follows the rules despite his discontent? Juliana is rebellious and despises the whole bloody thing. The storyline is so appealing and easy to read, but still gives you chill and those cliff-hangers keep you eng [...]

    26. One of the creepiest little books (YA) I have read in a long time. I read it twice because it haunted me and I had to check to see if my memory of the story was corrected - it was - goosebumps. The author used three very young characters (siblings) - too young even to carry the weapons they used to kill. Yes really!I think as adults we don't like to think of wee ones committing murders will such violent and intelligence. Again goosebumps. The scene in the police station was brilliant.As siblings [...]

    27. I am not a lover or follower of vampire bookst. Murderous Little Darlings is well written and the author John Hennessy has applied all the disciplines of short story writing to it - also the story has a beginning middle and end. I loved the humour in the dialogue and young adults, in fact any reader will love it. It isn't too graphic and the story has left me wanting to read more.As a novella the story has its plot and twists and kept me turning the pages.The characters that have been intorduced [...]

    28. a very easy and short read. it was okay but I think it was a bit to short with not as much substance as there should have been. I didn't find the characters all that thrilling but we're interesting. something was missing from the vampire style

    29. The cover is pretty, and eye-catching. I am always a sucker for dark hues, and the image of a girl staring at something unknown in the forest is very striking.Murderous Little Darlings is a book that I found to be great as a concept, but not in execution. Overall, the idea that there are little vampires causing havoc in the world is a good one, and the fact there are siblings who do not agree with each other does lead to some strong character moments. But unfortunately, this is a hard one to rea [...]

    30. I read this novella in under two hours but it was two hours of darkly humorous pure entertainment. I'm not really a fan of gory horror so a story involving vampires wouldn't normally appeal but the humour and unusual scenario of triplet pre-teen vampires kept me hooked from beginning to end. For the real purist fans of the vampire genre expecting black cloaked Dracula like characters only coming out at night, avoiding crucifixes, and sizzling away at the touch of a drop of holy water, this might [...]
