Sacrificial Lamb Cake – Katrina Monroe
(4 / 5)
This was a funny change of pace from what I have been reading lately. I really enjoyed it! If you are a fan of the movie “Dogma” with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, then you should enjoy this satirical version of the second coming. However the more religious readers may take offense, however I really didn’t feel that it was meant to be offensive at all and I am sure both religious and non religious readers will see the funny side.
So Rain has just found out that she is the lamb of God. And she is not happy about it. She is a lesbian raised by hippy parents after all. After performing some miracles with her now sidekick Jude, she resigns to the fact that she is the messiah. However a terrorist is blowing things up disguised as her, and the devil, ie “Lucy” is creating her own havoc. How is Rain going to find and fight the antichrist and save humanity?
I was reluctant to read this book at first, I try to avoid reviewing any sort of religious books. However this was a really enjoyable light fun ride. I really enjoyed her take on all the characters and there were quite a few moments that were hilarious.
It was a quick read and I really enjoyed the big twist near the end. I didn’t see it coming! Despite only a few more serious moments, it was pretty light and fluffy considering it was the end of the world. Loved Rain, Jude and “G”, and loved the adventures they had!
Would I recommend Sacrificial Lamb Cake?
Yes, to anyone who is after a light hearted read and who doesn’t mind the subject matter.
Many thanks to Katrina Monroe for a copy of Sacrificial Lamb Cake in exchange for my honest review.
