Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC to review!

3 stars!

First off I loved the random Dario Argento poem! I enjoyed these. Very different, and held lots of raw emotions and dark themes within them. I also really liked the poem Hypocrite.

Obviously not for everyone but I'm glad I came across this as now it has put Quinn Hernandez on my radar!

This was definitely written by a fellow horror nerd and I see you dude. Very fun, still had a few edge lord moments but I have a feeling those may have been put in there on purpose to make people laugh.

Great, thought-provoking pieces. All of the poems are dark and unsettling, to various degrees. And many had profound revelations that really made me pause and think. Deep and intelligent writing that isn't overly esoteric.

“…the only thing left holding his soul down is the weight of a lifetime of a multitude of sin, his reservoir of flesh stinks, it’s saturated with it this sin mixed with flesh hardens into a tomb.”

Quinn Hernandez’s collection is an unsettling round up of monsters and the unknown. Each poem uniquely describes the darker side of human nature. It explicitly describes the lengths to which one would go. Even those they feel they may not be capable of.

The author does great work in vividly describing how depraved ones thoughts in their most difficult times must be yet to have them portrayed so viscerally makes these poems uncomfortable to read.

Several of these had me pausing for a moment to really take in what had happened. Each one has that power to leave a lasting impression.

This collection may be a bit much for some readers as it does address the darkest and depraved parts of human existence. By looking into the hidden areas and voicing thoughts one could not fathom, it may unnerve some and for the same reason keep you wanting to read more.

A unique horror collection I really enjoyed.

True horror poetry! Each poem creating a raw blistering image. Each was a joy to read as a fan of the genre. It pulled from tropes (lovingly) and established unique ideas in turn. Splattering viscera and rotting flesh, like a cult classic film.

I enjoyed all of the poems; the author has a knack for creating great imagery for the dark/horror themes. The atmosphere kept my attention fully engaged throughout the entire novel. You can definitely tell the author is a lover of all things horror and so am I!

Thanks to NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to review this book.

A delightful collection of macabre and horror themed poetry. There are limericks, freestyle prose, traditional rhyming schemes, and more, along with subjects ranging from satirical and comedic to straight laced and somber. It's not every day I see horror poetry, but I think that's what lends charm to this fun little book.

It had the horror elements that I wanted and enjoyed about the concept. it was a great overall collection and enjoyed how good this all was. Quinn Hernandez has a great writing style and I hope to read more.
