BloodWorm Book Reviews-

Reviewing Disclaimer

Dark Fantasy Horror, Torture Porn & Sheer fuck-up-edness



Lost in a world no longer her own.

Laraya Jamison is a young woman on a camping trip with close friends before the start of college classes. When they are savagely attacked by a creature that defies description, she flees into the woods, unknowingly crossing through a breach between realities.

She must figure out where she is and how she got there in order to get home, but her survival depends on fighting monsters and demons that seem to have been ripped directly from her nightmares. Lost in a dark world full of creatures, hostile plant life and a banshee intent on hunting her, she must learn to confront her fears and figure out how to survive on her own.

My Thoughts:

5 Bloody Worms

Ok Wow. Now I'm going right off the bat that this is not my normal cup of tea. I'm not letting that take anything away from this book.

It is a beautifully written almost cosmic/fantasy/horror with many layers. The world building is fantastic and vivid. The MC Laraya is deeply traumatised , yet still a character you root for.

I would recommend this novel would be a good gateway to horror, or as a palette cleanser between heavier reads. Or even a New Adult read.

The Soul Eater is awesome! I really would've loved to seen it creeping about a little more. But that's me, an extreme horror reader.

Seriously this book has everything and a whole lot of wonder.

Boys Will Be Boys


Bri goes hiking with her friends, determined to make fun memories before her and her friends are off to college.

Everett and his friends are making their own memories; ones the girls aren’t going to want to be a part of. The boys forcefully include them anyway.

My Thoughts;

4.5 Bloody Worms

Torture porn with a twist. I liked the main character Bri. Apples don't fall far from the tree. Good , well written quick read. Can't say too much without giving it away.

Available on Amazon & Godless


The Slob


Raised in a household so filthy it was stomach-spilling, Vera involuntarily evolved into a neat freak. Upon discovering she and her disabled husband Daniel are expecting, she needs fast cash. Her obsession with cleanliness sprouts the concept that her skills can be put to use in a unique way. She takes a stab at the booming door-to-door vacuum sales business of 1988.

All is going well until she arrives at the steps of a house that will change her forever. The steps of an evil that resurrects the ghastly memories she so desperately tried to wash away. Nothing will prepare you for the nastiness, disorder, and sickening horror brought forth by... The Slob

My Thoughts;

5 Blood Worms

Wait... I think I just vomited in my mouth.

Repulsive, disgusting, and stomach-churning. If you like gross and putrid, you will love this feast of puss fill, decay laid out for you by the "sicko" Beauregard.

A shorter story and this works in its favour, unless you are dieting and trying NOT to eat.

I was going to rate it 4 bloodworms as the trauma inflicted on the characters surpassed my suspended disbelief. But ended up giving it 5 bloodworms as it demonstrated my ability to be grossed out is still intact.

Now I need a shower, in bleach to wash this story away.

Available on Amazon & Godless

Now before I get started on publicly promoting my book reviews I want to start off with a few points.

1) I will never ever take money to review a book.

2) These are my thoughts and opinions on books I have read for my own pleasure. If you disagree, excellent, that is why there is such an amazing selection of books in the world, something for everyone.

3) Why do most of my reviews have 4-5 Bloodworms?

Well I won't review books I don't finish (DNF) for a start. I am definitely not going to waste time on promoting them. I am quite particular about the books I do select and whilst I am a horror writer, I do read across the genres, neatly sidestepping romance.

4) You will find I am more critical of traditional published books. These people get paid a motza to create a perfect product and have a whole team. Yes I believe Indie authors and presses need to be held to the same account but I am a little more generous. Overall though, if the story doesn't cut it, it doesn't cut it.

5) Finally I am not a professional, qualified nor do I read deep in literary processes. I enjoy different books for many different reasons. Some are just popcorn fun, some are deeper.
