Review: 9 Months Trilogy by Matt Shaw

Book Description:

For the first time ever – get the whole trilogy in one book!

In Book One:

For some people it’s a dream – bringing a child into the world, with someone you love. Starting a family and gearing yourself up for your Happy Ever After. For some people, it’s something they have dreamed about since they were a little girl. But not Jessica, not even eighteen years of age yet, she doesn’t feel ready. She doesn’t want 9 Months of discomfort, and a baby at the end of it. She doesn’t feel as though she’s lived enough of her own life yet. Maybe one day, just not right now. It’s just too bad her kidnapper seems hell-bent on keeping her and her baby alive.

What do they want with her baby? What will happen to her after she’s given birth? I guess, in 9 Months, she’ll find out. Until then, she’s in for the long haul…

In Book Two:

Jessica is still trapped in a nightmare. Her captor refusing to let her go. Refusing to grant her the abortion she desperately seeks. But is motherhood really that bad, as her captor tries to make her see the light? Would a baby be the best thing to ever happen to her?

With more twists and turns – follow the nightmare as it unfolds; told through the eyes of the people living the story.

And in Book Three:

Jessica thought she was safe – nothing else could get her. She thought her nightmare was over and soon she’d be free from her shackles and the pregnancy.

It was never going to be that easy, though, and soon she realised – by killing one monster – she had created one far worse than she could have ever imagined.

By now, you all know how I feel about Matt Shaw’s books…I love them. He always spins a suspenseful tale and his characters are realistic no matter what kind of hell he puts them through. 9 Months Trilogy is no different and is far less gory and disgusting than many of his other books. Jessica ends up pregnant at age 17 and like many girls, decides abortion is the way to go. She’s too young to raise a child and wants time to live her life before having kids.

Shaw goes about this beautifully. He completely avoids the whole abortion controversy and takes the story to a whole other level. This story comes to us from several different points of view at different times in the characters’ lives, which I found a bit confusing at the beginning, but it sorted itself out as I kept reading.

Let’s talk about the ending for just a second. I really want to tell you how it ends, but I’ll keep my mouth shut. Let’s just say I let out a squeal at the end which is embarrassing when you’re in a quiet room with other people. Fans of Shaw’s other books will know what I’m talking about.

9 Months Trilogy is a little more pricey than most of Matt’s books at $5.47 US and, £3.60 UK, but since it’s three books in one, it’s well worth it.

All in all, the POV thing was a bit confusing but the story more than made up for it.
