Bad Apples is Five Slices of Halloween Horror.
I received and read this book in October of 2014, but…
These unique, gruesome and devilishly delicious stories will have you looking over your shoulder, jumping at every noise and shadow.
Be careful of wandering dark streets at night.
The authors twisted imaginations take horror to the highest levels with surprise endings and plenty of twists and turns along the way.
Four stars all the way!
The Riggle Twins by Gregor Xane
Pretty gross and devilishly delicious with tricks and treats for the Halloween hater. Do you have a dark house on Halloween, no candy for the treaters? Beware…egging and tping are not the only tricks these children have in store for you. 4 Stars
Pumpkinhead Ted by Evans Light
What they did to Ted is so awful…I can’t tell you. You’ll have to read it for yourself. BUT, he is back, one year later, for payback. OMG. I never saw that coming. Evans Light takes me to a place that smacks me around and makes me scream UNCLE! 4 Stars
Ghost Light Road by Adam Light
Of course, someone saw the light. Of course, what happens next, had to happen. I actually laughed. Dumbasses! Here comes the badness. You think vampires and werewolves are scary, you haven’t met Uncle Jesse’s children…and you really don’t want to. 4 Stars
Easy Pickings by Jason Parent
Beware. What goes around, comes around. Like a cat playing with its prey, I know something is coming…Now…No, now….Uh Oh. 4 Stars
The Scare Rows by Edward Lorn
Children of the Corn and Supernatural on steroids. I didn’t see this story developing the way it did, but I should not have been surprised, with Edward’s twisted imagination. Horror, perverted sex and evil do go together well. I wondered how he would end The Scare Rows and I couldn’t help but laugh when I got there. Corn Whisky…HA HA HA HA HA! Excellent. 5 Stars
I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Bad Apples.
Read for "Serial Killer Spree:" The Bedding of Boys is the upcoming novel by Edward Lorn. I should say couple'a things before we get started, cool? I was a beta reader of this novel, meaning the copy I read and am reviewing now is not the final version. Because of that, I will keep this review purposefully vague as to not chance referencing something that doesn't end up in the final, published edition of this story. E. tells me The Bedding of Boys will likely see two revisions before publication. Said publication will be a limited hardcover that will come along in spring 2018. The ebook/paperback releases will be, at the very soonest, early 2019 — if at all.
I'd like to say one more thing, may it do ya fine. Edward is a good friend of mine; his friendship means a lot to me. However, that did not color my opinion of the story in any way. I feel I can be honest with him, and I'm thankful for that. This review is totally my unobstructed and honest opinion.
Alright. Holy moly, this book. Regina, this novel's antagonist, is a woman in her mid-thirties with an insatiable lust for young men. And she's a serial killer; she often kills her victims in gory, brutal ways. As far as villains of this sort go, I think she's interesting and I love the fact that she is a woman: female rapists aren't explored in fiction enough, in my opinion. Her stalking of victims and unabashed sexuality made for intense reading, often leaving me breathless.
The story's heart is Nevada, fourteen-year-old gamer geek and Regina's latest focus. They soon develop a relationship of sorts, and it is this strange and thrilling and unashamedly erotic development that serves as the crux of this novel. Where does it go? How does it end? Read and find out!
Edward tells me this novel is his exploration of male sexuality, and I would say it's a successful one. Lorn is not afraid to write brutal honesty: he captures the teenage boys in their truest essence, reader's offenses be damned. The friendship of Nevada and Tommy was my favorite part to read, though I did enjoy Regina and the intriguing "ghost," too.
I do have a few complaints, though they are rather minuscule and, again, these problems could certainly be ironed out before this novel's publication. I wish the budding, strange romance between Nevada and Regina would have been expanded some; it all feels a bit rushed. I'm not saying I personally enjoyed the relationship — rape is as unpleasant to me as it is anyone else — but it was highly intriguing. I just wanted more, that's all. Really, that could go for novel as a whole: I wish it were longer.
A sickening and horrific and erotic thrill ride, I'm glad to have started my Halloween Bingo off with The Bedding of Boys. And thank you, E, for letting me be a beta reader!
