The sickness will kill you, but can you stomach The Remedy - Q&A with author Asher Ellis

 THE REMEDY (April 8, 2015, Full Fathom Five Digital) is a gripping tale of a college vacation gone horrifically wrong.

In his début novel with Full Fathom Five Digital, Asher Ellis displays a disturbing knack for campy fun and backwoods gore.  It’s Warm Bodies and The Strain meets Spring Breakers, and definitely not for the faint of heart.


Today we have the pleasure of meeting up with author Asher Ellis and talk about his brilliant début novel, The Remedy, our favourite book of the year so far.

"Straight-A student from the University of Vermont, Leigh Swanson, knew she should never have gotten in that car.  A raucous, booze-filled weekend in Montreal sounded like a bad idea from that start.  But, following the incessant nagging from her roommate, she finally gave in— against her better judgement.  However, when a half-baked scheme to smuggle illegal substances across the border takes a turn for the worse, the gang finds themselves lost deep in the woods, terrorized by a contagious deadly fungus and hunted by a family of twisted, interbred cannibals.  And these kids are about to discover that, sometimes, the only thing worse than the sickness itself is The Remedy."

Recommended to ☯Bettie☯ by: Susanna - Censored by GoodReads

kDescription: How well can you really know the people you love, even your own son? Four young women are murdered, and he's the suspect . . .

After raising her son, Ben, as a single parent, librarian Inga Daudelin is blindsided when he is accused of the murders of four young women. At the same time, Jean, a young, pregnant waif who seems both simple and wise, "imprints" on Inga at work, drawing her into an unusual friendship. When Ben kidnaps Jean, Inga and lead detective Ron O'Loughlin, with whom she is falling in love, search for the two, who along with Jean's baby, have formed a strange but human family.

"This wonderful novel is a success at every level--an engrossing thriller and a nuanced examination of love--written with artful directness. I loved every word and could not put it down." -- Scott Turow

THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION is the winner of The Kindle Book Review's 2013 Best Indie Book Award in the suspense category.


Dedication: For Jeff

Opening: Part 1: Chapter One: Inga: I remember the day Ben was born, how they laid him on my chest all mottled pink and squirming. When I rubbed my cheek against his tender head, he clutched my finger with his tiny ones as if to claim me.

Arrived today, out of the blue, from Greenville, where this author grew up.

Thank you Judy, Susanna, Bob and Belinda


Main bug is that too much is given away on the back cover, but that said, this was a perfect bedside read, the sort that is perfect through half closed, tired eyes; not taxing on the intellect but interesting enough to keep one's attention. That ending was from out of left field, it's got to be said.

Fun read
The Answer To Your Question - Paulette Bates Alden

The novel " The Answer to Your Question" by Paulette Alden, made up of alternating views from Inga and Jean, was a real pleasure to read. Getting to know the two main characters was interesting and their development was fun to watch. The feelings both have and develop towards Ben, Inga's son, was very different from each other at different times. The end was also unexpected and exciting also. This was a fun read that moved along very easily. I really loved it!
