Cannot be less than 5 Stars!
It was a beguiling yet horrifying piece of erotica with strong plot and characters.
Starts with bang, ends with a Super Bang!
Kraken ticks off just about all of my tent-sex requirements. It's almost like the author heard my lamentations on the lacking I found in most of of my tent-sex books. It scored so near to what I want, it is a tad uncanny in a way. Like the power above decided to answer all my wishes at once. I want slick and slimy action, there it is! Even gooey and sticky was there. How about some erotic sounding by organic matter? Oh yes whatever you said master! I could only wish for that particular scene to be longer though. I am greedy. Yes.
The story was so thick with mystery, layers upon layers of it. Characters acting suspicious and ominous. It was totally unsettling yet you can't wait to find out why. Needless to say it was a gripping story, so compelling and satisfying. Would definitely please many horror addicts not to mention mystery and psychological fans too. That is, of course, provided they are into M/M noncon tentacles sexing up!
About the tentacles sex aspect, all was kinky and erotic it gives me goosebumps kinda way until.... I reached about 70%, then BOOM! Hell breaks loose! And I am starting to question the author's motive on writing this book. Was it a secret plot to convert us tentacles fans to staunch supporter of normal suction-cups-free sex? I am saying this because what comes after that point onwards was far... far...... from erotic. If I have nuts, it would have retreated posthaste with no hope of returning. Horrifying can't even come close to describe what the poor protagonist has gone through. I shudder while recalling some gruesome, sickening events that shocked my core. If you are the sensitive and squeamish kind, you might want to reconsider your plan on reading this. Then again, you may possibly survive just like weakling ol' me did and end up with one hell of an experience to share. I am very much wearing it like a shiny badge of honor.
I have to agree with Lisa's review that the writing was superbly evocative and the visual was utterly enthralling. I felt like I am walking along side the characters in that eerie woods, swimming in the dangerous dark blue sea and then bursting my heart running away from that berserk sea monster in pursuit of the good guys. Whew! I had to stop reading for awhile to calm my poor heart before I get a heart attack.
The visual sensation is just too strong to avoid being affected by it. I promise you would feel breathlessness throughout your reading. I suffocate along with the MC each time his breath was forcefully taken away. Drowning with him in his agony.
Not only was the world-building amazing, the characters are also well-built. They are certainly round characters, shows prominent growth and each of their voices are distinct. Who has my heart? It will be Will, our long-suffering protagonist. The author has ran him through the mill over and over again. My heart was pulverized along the way. THIS is what a good book should do to you. Oh and there's a sociopath in this book. He is fascinating to me since I like psychological element. Yes, the cray-cray captivates this moth.
If you want a tent-sex book with strong plot coupled with intense mixture of gripping horror and mystery elements, this IS your book.
And such a daring book it was. Would positively look great on the big screen. Both horrifying and satisfying. Not a chance in the world I would ever forget this amazing story. It is now forever etched upon my mind.
Dear Author, a big thank you for this crazy adventure. I had the wildest ride ever! May I request a tentacle non-con with mpreg next? Please? Pretty please, please?
