Succulent Prey - Wrath James White
Succulent Prey - Wrath James White

Succulent Prey should come with a warning on the cover: WARNING - Not for the faint of heart, weak stomachs or if your idea of horror is Stephen King and Dean Koontz. If you like your horror to be serial killers, cannabalism, and graphic page after page drenched in blood, Succulent Prey might be for you. This is my first forray into Wrath James White's writing and yes, it's brutal, but White isn't a one-trick pony. The guy can flat out write. In the hands of a less talented author, this story easily gets lost. But White breathes life into it...well...right before he rips open a chest and yanks our a heart and eats it. Okay, I'm regressing. Joey is an 11-year-old kid that gets abducted by a serial killer who gets his kicks by slicing his victims and drinking his blood. Joey was the first victim and for some unknown reason, the killer lets him go. The subsequent victims aren't so lucky. They're brutally sliced apart, blood drank and flesh consumed. The killer, Trent, is finally apprehended and sent away to a mental institution. Flash forward to present day where Joey is a sophomore in college and he's a big boy, and when I say big, I mean football player/body builder big. Top it off that he look like Superman from the comics and you can see why he has no problem picking up women. Unfortunately, the scars of his past have made his sex life and desires slide to the extreme. And when I say extreme, I'm not talking a little light bondage S&M. No, Joey dreams of sinking his teeth into their flesh and consuming them in one bloody bite after another.



I'll stop here on the story's details and say that this story could've easily went off the rails into the rediculous many times, but Wrath gives us a compelling tale that pulls you in. Joey is a complex character that you can't decide how you feel about him. His victims are the sad sacks with no self esteem that society typically exploits. At times, you think, "who'd do that?", then you realize that yes, there are people out there like that. At times, the story walks the razor's edge of suspension of disbelief, but White delivers a blood-soaked thrill ride with your hair on fire. If you like your stories to extreme splatterpunk, grab your raincoat and try to avoid the splatters.

Succulent Prey
Succulent Prey - Wrath James White Succulent Prey is an insanely fast paced gruesome killfest, containing some of the most graphic descriptions of a cannibalistic killer I’ve read, all the killings go hand in hand with a sexual appetite that well … it just ain’t right.

There’s obviously a market for this sort of stuff but this just purely concentrates on shock value and raising that bar as high as the author can get it. It’s bloody, gory, stomach-churning at times and more than just a little sick & twisted.
Tongue in cheek extreme horror this may well be but it’s the relationship between sex and the cannibalistic side of the story that was a touch worrying.

Succulent Prey
Succulent Prey - Wrath James White This wins the prize for the most disgusting thing I ever read. At the start I was afraid it would be nothing but disgusting. But if you're able to stomach the cannibalism (pun intended) then you'll find a unique story of a serial killer in the making who is desperately trying to find a cure for his condition before he reaches the point of no return. This was my first experience with Wrath James White and he thoroughly kicked my ass.
