A TASTE OF HOME

A deep and brutal werewolf tale

Synopsis

Toby Liberman is nearing the end of his rope. After a fateful confrontation with his wife’s lover, he is chased into the woods, only to be discovered by an unidentifiable creature. He is attacked and rendered unconscious. Upon waking at the scene of a gruesome triple homicide, Toby is arrested as the sole suspect and thrown into a jail cell with a strange man who knows way too much about his predicament. The stranger reveals to Toby that he now possesses the curse of the werewolf. Using his new-found strength to flee his captors, Toby begins to discover that things are not what they seem in the sleepy town of Twin Oaks, TX. Now hunted by law enforcement, as well as the town’s gun toting civilians, Toby seeks vengeance against his false accusers and embarks upon a quest to clear his name once and for all.

Review

Werewolves in Texas, y’all.

In A Taste of Home by C. Derick Miller, small town drama and corruption meets the curse of the werewolf. This early work of Miller’s gives a respectful nod to early Stephen King by using character choices and actions as the ultimate horror with the added monster horror as spice and catalyst. Miller’s diverse and vivid characters play upon your emotions as the horrors play upon your guts.

This story alternates between flowing narrative and brutal sequences. The foreshadowing creates titillating suspense, but you are ultimately not prepared for the turn things take. I had a moment of vocal exclamation accompanied by a brief desire to stab the author myself as the tale progressed.

These are not Hollywood movie werewolves! This one will keep you up at night.

A Taste of Home is book 1 in the Home Series, and I can hardly wait to read the next one!

Review: Hunger On The Chisholm Trail

Hunger On The Chisholm Trail (Splatter Western # 2) by M. Ennenbach

Synopsis: The first cattle drive of the season leaves Texas for Abilene, Kansas along the Chisholm Trail, but unforeseen terrors lay hidden in the natural beauty of the land. In the heart of Indian Territory lies the sleepy town of Duncan, a friendly respite from the dusty land. But something lurks in the untamed West-a powerful creature that hunts to satiate its horrifying hunger. The land will run red with blood, and only Karl Beck a chance against this ancient evil.

Review: I read this book in a single sitting. No exaggeration. I didn’t stop to do anything at all. As of late, I only recall doing that with one other book this year. The first being The Magpie Coffin (Death’s Head Press Splatter Western # 1) and I think this series is headed in the right direction. Western themed horror exists but is still a commercially untapped market. I hope it stays that way. Commercialism just shortchanges the experience. If you’ve never read one, though, it’s a missed opportunity.

This is my first journey into the head of Mike Ennenbach and I’m sure it won’t be my last. He ramped up the suspense from the very beginning of this book and didn’t stop until the very end. How can you run on pure adrenaline without neglecting character development? I’m not sure, but he managed to pull it off. The main characters were all well developed in between the creep factor. The nemesis in this novel (no spoilers) is seeded deep in Native American legend and only spoken of in whispers in real life. That’s enough to make any man cringe. The human race believes it has an understanding of nature…until we don’t. To say that man knows all which lurks in the barren plains and undeveloped forests of the western parts of this country is a bold statement. After all, legends are loosely based on experiences from the unfortunate who were lucky enough to survive encounters with the supernatural, right? My grandfather was Native American and a God fearing Christian until the day he died. Conflicting beliefs, right? Regardless of his faith in those beliefs, he told me of places I shouldn’t venture in these modern times because “there are some things in the deep, dark places of this world that weren’t meant to be seen or understood by mortal men.” His words. I’ve always believed him. Ennenbach went there.

In closing, I’d like to mention the Easter Eggs thrown throughout this book. Fun ones. If you’re already a fan of Death’s Head Press or Indie Horror in general, you may notice a few familiar names here and there. After all, the beast must feed. Might as well be someone you know…

Excellent read. Five well deserved stars.
