“A dark, erotic psychological thriller.”

The storyline is compelling, the characters complex and colorful, and the writing is brutally raw yet thoughtful and honest. With all that taken into consideration, this fantastic book was easily a five-star read for me. I highly recommend Mak (Stiletto) by new and upcoming author Shay Bell.

I loved Mak's character. She's totally a wicked girl with a knife.

“A compelling read.”

This is a compelling read, quite dark in places with lots of erotic scenes which are not repetitive and boring like other novels sometimes are! There is a shocking twist in the book which also brings authenticity to the story. This is Shay's first novel and I thought it was fantastic and I would highly recommend it, but not if you are after hearts and flowers!!! I can't wait until Shays next upcoming novel.

“an intense dark read about revenge.”

I have to say that I felt like I was on a roller coaster through much of this book. You never knew what was going to happen. The story was as unpredictable as Mak herself. The paragraphs are heavily loaded, courtesy of the author's painstaking care to detail. His characters, as troubled as they were, were actually likable. The storyline blew me away to the very end. The editing was top notch. Outstanding job by first time author, Shay Bell. I look forward to reading more of his work and I highly recommend this book.
