Review:

 

Omorphi is an engrossing story. It also a surprising lengthy m/m and YA novel which seems to be a rarity. The character, Christy, a fragile, traumatize individual is handled in a thoughtful manner.  Some of the scene are indeed hard to read, but I believe the author balanced the amount of detail needed without it being horrifyingly explicit.

 

Overall good storytelling, but it does suffer from overly dramatic unnecessary plot twists. (The whole Jason side plot was really unnecessary for me.) Some of the dialogue throughout the book is inconsistent with the character's ages.

 

All said I still enjoyed the tale. It was worth both my time and money. 

 

Heat rating is low.  Love scenes are mild and non-explicit.
