House of Rot - by Danger Slater
This is the second book I’ve read from Danger, Moonfellows (which I adored) was probably the first Bizzaro (or bordering Bizzaro?) book I read, and I loved the absurdity of it, the lack of recognition to science and logic that it happily presented, and how freeing it was to go with the flow. When Tenebrous Press asked for readers, I jumped at the chance. Another Danger Slater novel?
Slater doesn’t disappoint. There are killer lines here right from the beginning, lines that made me laugh out loud:
Sacrifice was the name of the game. They cut back on the avocado toast and learned to mix their own mimosas.
I might well have fallen off my chair with that one. There’s Danger’s underplayed sarcasm, his love of the absurd (the conversations with Brad), the creeping spore horror, and then its subsequent body horror – you are through the book before you realize, and feel cheated that you can’t stay longer.
This was, for me, a hit from the first word, the reader’s need for it to get as bad as it can go pushing our concern for the MCs to the side – respectfully – but yep, off they go, our cares. Let’s see what happens when you disintegrate :D
Yes, it’s disgusting. Yes, it will make you say “eww” out loud. Yes, we know that going in with a title like “House of Rot”. Stop whinging! Millennials!
Danger, this was fun. Keep them coming.
5 out of 5 stars.
