The Taste of Blood

by Jon Athan

WARNING: This novel contains graphic content. Reader discretion is advised.

After being sexually abused by her nineteen-year-old boyfriend at a party, Genesis Hudson—a thirteen-year-old girl—believes she has become a vampire. Her hunger for human blood intensifies with each passing day. She craves it, she feels sick without it. Aubrey Horne, Genesis’ best friend, knows she is mentally unwell, but she needs time to help her. So, with an abundance of reluctance, she agrees to help Genesis find blood by any means necessary. And while doing so, she discovers a side to Genesis she’s never seen before…

How far can two girls go to find blood? Can Aubrey save Genesis from herself before it’s too late? Or has Genesis really become a vampire?

Jon Athan, the provocative author behind Our Dead Girlfriend and Mason’s Television, brings you a new grotesque coming-of-age horror novel filled with acts of depravity and violence.

BFF’s – Best Friends Forever? Well, one of them sure thinks so! With a little too much emphasis on the Forever.
Too bad she’s 🦇💩 crazy.
But, it’s one Hell of a best friend to go as far as this one went.

This is a really touching story about friendship. Ok, “really touching” to those of us who live on Planet Splatter… everyone else might have to look a little deeper, past the blood and gore, around the bodies, and over by the fridge, hahaha. I feel kind of shitty because there isn’t a chance that I would have put up with half of the mess that Aubrey does, much less go to the extremes she goes to just to try help Genesis – knowing all along that she’s 🦇💩. There were two points that I was hoping that the author would just jump script and take the vampire angle to a place where we could believe the story – that’s how hard I was rooting for the girls.

Of course I recommend it – it’s Jon Athan! Don’t miss it.

THE CABIN II: ASYLUM By Matt Shaw

THE CABIN II: ASYLUM
By Matt Shaw
cover-1
Possible spoiler alert for part one.
Don’t read this if you haven’t read THE CABIN.
You know I always try my hardest to not give anything away – but, I’m warning you JUST IN CASE.

We start this story right where we left off in part one,
in the cabin with Craig.
It’s morning.
He’s hoping it’s over.
Praying it’s over.
Ghosts only show up at night, right?
He hears the footsteps on the front porch again – coming right for the front door!
Not again. He won’t be tormented like this! No more!
He raises the gun…

While being evaluated for his competency hearing, we’re with Craig as he is trying to put the pieces together for himself, in the very asylum that led to his decent into madness. Leaving his padded cell only to endure the torments & questionable treatments from the staff, Craig isn’t sure if he is getting better or losing his mind all together. As he searches for answers, will he discover the key to his freedom or the one that will lock him in forever?
