    "I witnessed a murder myself when I was 9 years old. Reading this book really brought back a lot of crazy memories and it was really bad. I felt terribly annoyed honestly. To be honest it was one of the worst things I've witnessed. This book is great in telling a story about someone that has gone through the same thing to be honest."

    "I thought this was an interesting read. I wasn't sure I was gong to like it, but a few chapters in it had me hooked. It took a different spin on vampires of today and really the whole gay thing wasn't in your face like it is with other books. I thought it was well written and the horror in it was great."

    "Wet Nails was a very interesting read. The LGBTQ themes are a little forced, but the urban fantasy setting is really well done. The characters do feel real and three-dimensional, they just seem a little stereotypical. The writing isn't bad, and the plot is fairly enthralling."
