And Hell Followed An Anthology by Death’s Head Press

😈😈😈😈😈

Picked up this book at a horror convention. I could not put the it down.  I honestly read the entire book the weekend of the horror convention!  The interesting takes by multiple authors on the story of the apocalypse was fantastic! This book has humor, depravity, and down right evil and I loved it! Each author took a piece of Revelations and made it their own. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

Full Brutal by Kristopher Triana

😈😈😈😈😈

I listened to the audio book on my way to and from work. I was almost late a few times because I didn’t want to stop listening!  The story is of a young woman who takes what she wants, when she wants it. As her manipulation of people continues, her behavior escalates bringing out her deepest, darkest demons to the forefront. Triana takes us into the mind of a sadistic psychopath that has no limits or regard for herself or others. Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it does!  What a tumultuous ride!  This story is not for the squeamish and definitely deserving of the 2019 Splatterpunk Award for Best Novel!  Bravo!!

Stronger Than Hate by Robert Essig

😈😈😈😈

Be forewarned if you have triggers of torture, humiliation, and deprivation, this story is not for you. I do not have any triggers but this was still a very hard book to read for me. Robert Essig illustrates how cruel we as people can be to ourselves and others. Although the story is focused on teens exacting their revenge, the amount of torture, sadism and abuse is appalling. The repeated torment the victim receives really pulled at my heart strings. I found the story illicited anger in me and  I wanted to jump into the manuscript and kick some butt for her. After some heavy chapters, I had to put the book down for a moment to gather my emotions and take a deep breath. Essig gradually shows how the mind breaks down as that envelope gets pushed deeper and deeper to their darkest, sadistic desires.  In addition to everything going on, a sinister evil takes prey as a mechanism for their own objective, seeking to cross the threshold into our dimension.  The story flows and escalates well. I would describe it as hoodlumism at its best.  Do the malevolent forces win? Read the book and find out!

My Blog Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me! I am a Registered Nurse Manager by day and a beta/proof reader of horror and fantasy in my free time!  I have always loved reading because I could use books as an escape; a way to de-stress and wind down from those rough and emotional days at work. 

My entry into the horror genre began as a teenager with Interview with the Vampire and the rest of The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice. I read a few John Saul books as well and I was hooked.  Then I found extreme horror and Splatterpunk and knew this was my cup of tea. I have been very fortunate to have met quite a few horror authors and am grateful to call them my friends.
