The Necromancer's House by Christopher Buehlman, narrated by Todd Haberkorn
The Necromancer's House - Christopher Buehlman,Todd Haberkorn

 

This book is totally INSANE!!

 

I thought Between Two Fires was crazy, but The Necromancer's House has that one beat. By a mile!

 

Magic is inherent but also can be taught. There are all kinds of spells that may be weaved. There are all kinds of creatures of myth and folklore. There's a meteor! There's a crazy-ass dog... creation. There is the dead founder of AA having conversations through the television. There's a house, filled with many booby traps and spells, and what dark fiction reader doesn't love that? There's also much, much more.

 

I can't even begin to explain this book, nor would I want to try. But what I can say is that I love and respect an imagination that can come up with something this maniacal and satisfying! It was entertaining, but also had parts where the pain was visceral. The characters were well drawn even if many of them were just downright nasty. I have to admit that a few of the characters that I disliked at first became my favorites by the end. I love when that happens.

 

I started with Those Across the River , then read Between Two Fires, and now this one. I'm not sure which of Christopher Buehlman's books I'll read next, but I am definitely going to be reading all of them!

 

I highly recommend this one to lovers of dark fiction, with some magic and myths woven into the narrative fabric. I guarantee you haven't read anything like it!

Two Sisters: A gripping psychological thriller with a shocking twist - Kerry Wilkinson

This was my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. The story of two sisters who find out that their brother did not die years ago like they thought because that's what their parents told them was intense at times and very entertaining all of the time. 

I will definitely be reading more of this author in the future.

Thanks to Bookouture and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-book in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Chaturbate's Castrations: A Tale of Sex and Horror - Matt Shaw

 

 

 

CHATURBATE:

1: A blend of the words "chat" and "masturbate".   2: The act of masturbating while chatting online.  3: A website for both of the above. 4:  The new extreme horror from Matt Shaw that pushes the boundaries of taste & decency.

 

 

 

 

 

Who Needs A 5 Star Rating?
Chaturbate's Castrations - 5/5 Deadly Dildos  

 

 

 

They logged in for the show. They didn't expect to be the star.

Bunni's webcam site needs a boost in numbers. More viewers, and more tips. But, she already offers it all, doesn't she?  Exhibitionism, role-play, daddy-play... Then it hits her - people are always looking for harder, and darker.  She needs to show her viewers just how hard, and dark she can get!  (Once she figures it out, that is!) With the help of one regular viewer, Bunni is preparing to put on a show like she's never done before. She loses any, and all inhibitions once she finds the right head-space - she might even enjoy this! One thing is for sure... this is going to be a show that her viewers will never forget.  

 

 

 

 

Chaturbate on Broadway!

The upbeat musical that offers a fun, positive outlook on the cam industry.

Coming Soon? 'Matt Shaw Presents: Chaturbate's Castrations - The Musical'

* I'll start the Kickstarter page!!

   

 

#FF: (I love bizarre sex laws!) I JUST learned that it is a felony to own six or more dildos in the state of Texas!

Dark Screams: Volume Seven
Dark Screams: Volume Seven - Brian Hodge,Bill Schweigart,Richard Chizmar,Brian James Freeman,Robert R. McCammon

The Dark Screams series comes along with this, Volume Seven, and continues to be one of the most solid anthology series' out there. 

 

Going into this, I fully expected the Robert McCammon story to be my favorite, as he's one of my favorite authors and never fails to satisfy my story urge. However, I have to hand it to James Renner because his story A MONSTER COMES TO ASHDOWN FOREST (IN WHICH CHRISTOPHER ROBIN SAYS GOODBYE) not only knocked the ball out of the park, it knocked it out of town! To see the Pooh stories turned into dark fiction pleased me to no end! Five FAT stars!

 

That said, I did love McCammon's Lizardman. In a way this story reminded me of that TV show I've seen previews of-The Swamp People? But then the tale took a strange twist and landed somewhere totally different. 4 stars!

 

 

WEST OF MATAMOROS, NORTH OF HELL by Brian Hodge was a strange tale where mythology and real life blended into a torture chamber of sorts. Never pray to the skeleton saint. 4*

 

I enjoyed the rest of the stories as well, just as not as much as these 3-and these 3 alone are well worth the price of admission! Highly recommended!

 

You can pre-order your copy here: Dark Screams: Volume Seven

 

 

*Thanks to Hydra and NetGalley for the e-ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. This is it.*

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough
Behind Her Eyes - Sarah Pinborough,Bea Holland,Josie Dunn,Huw Parmenter,Anna Bentinck

What more can be said about this book without ruining it for the next reader? Not much. I'm sticking with I really liked it, but I understand why it wouldn't work for everyone.

 

I thought the audiobook was a lot of fun, especially with the two main narrators alternating chapters.

 

I highly recommend this audio and I'd love to hear your thoughts when you're done!

 

Thanks to my awesome public library for the audio loan.
