DOLLS by Matt Shaw
Dolls - Matt Shaw

Synopsis:

“He understood why she did it. She had lost her own baby – one conceived by the unwanted advances of a sexual predator – and hated thinking of them out there in the cemetery, alone and cold. She had to bring them into the warm. She had to give them the life they’d otherwise never live. It was her mission. But with each new doll brought home, her yearning for a living child of her own continued to grow. Yes, he knew why she did it but – even so – he wasn’t able to stand by her and he knew she was going to get a lot worse before she got better. But how do you help someone who doesn’t want to be helped? And how do you turn your back on your own sister?”

 

IDK what stopped me from reading this title earlier, (published 02.02.16), but I’m happy that I finally did! DOLLS feels like one of Matt Shaw‘s older titles – it’s not a black cover, not an extreme extreme horror, and the core story totally sucked me in. I was 100% invested right from Jump Street. Now, as embarrassing as this might be, I gotta tell ya… I didn’t see the ‘oh holy shit’ moment until about 5 words before it was revealed to us! I love that Matt can still do that after all these years, and all these books.

TWO MINDS: 50 SHADES OF FUCKED UP - An Extreme Horror Novel by MATT SHAW & SAM WEST
Two Minds: An Extreme Horror Novel - Matt Shaw,Sam West

These two authors are a match made in… well, Heaven for me!

I’ve been a fan of Matt’s for a very long time. When I stumbled across Sam’s work not very long after, the two people who introduced me to Matt said I’d enjoy Sam’s writing as well – (thank you Suzanne and Cathy!) – and they were right.
IMO, Sam West’s stories have been getting increasingly better this year, and this collaboration came at the perfect time for both of them.

Two Minds is told through the viewpoint of the two characters living the story.

The Woman – convinced the man she is talking to is responsible for her sister’s disappearance – and The Man… Who is he? Did he have anything to do with the sudden disappearance of Samantha’s sister or is he nothing more than an innocent bystander?

Only one thing is for sure… After this night, neither of them will be the same again.

I wish the ending were a little… ‘beefier’ (for lack of a better term, or perfect tongue in cheek?).  I just felt like I needed a bit more there, but that’s only one readers opinion.  I love how it was written. It’s a great style, and I bet we’ll see more authors experimenting with it. This story, (plus the little preview I had), has got me even more excited for The Devil’s Guests!! Have you been looking for something a bit more twisted than usual? The Devil’s Guests is gonna do things to you that no book has done before – trust!

 

Peace, Love & Necrophilia ♥

Being one of Matt's Dirty Little Love Monkeys in the Sick B*stards Society gave me access to an early preview of The Devil's Guests. These were my notes from my advanced copy...

I'm less than halfway into my sneak peek (pts 1 & 2) of THE DEVIL'S GUESTS, and  there are already some new, and very original forms of torture being inflicted upon our main characters! I'm being led to new levels of depravity, and I'm skipping as I descend into the depths!

I can't help but wonder what would happen if these authors were all in the same room together during this project, instead of being scattered among the globe. I have no doubt that alcohol and bail money would both be involved.

Full review to come!

REVIEW: Evil Little Things
Evil Little Things: A Tale of Horror and Possession - Matt Shaw

I have several books by Matt Shaw on my Kindle, but there was something about this one... this cover... that made me pick it up first... and I'm so glad that I did. It's such a great little story, and a great little teaser to the awesomeness that is THE Matt Shaw. My first thoughts, upon finishing this, was Wow, and those thoughts didn't leave, even after the story settled in. I find this author to be quite eloquent, even funny, in a horrifically messed up I'm-going-to-Hell-for-laughing-at-that kind of way. It takes a lot to fully impress me, and this man has definitely done that.
