Read full description of the books:
Well written, and similar enough in style that I can only hope to write that well, but...
Why does everything "horror" have to be poisoned with sexism? WHY IS THAT THE STORY THAT HAS TO BE REPEATED. Women flee men because the women are so pretty that it's a curse. Women destroy men...or rather those unwanted excess children of single mothers do. Single mothers, amirite? Men eventually have to throw women away; otherwise they'll be trapped in a marriage forever. Joke! Your dreams died anyway. Women destroy the men that pressure them, so it's their fault anyway. Haha, so original.
The truly creepy part is enjoying some delicious fictional creepiness...only to run into that old tale again, that the only important things about a woman are her beauty and subservience. And when those things aren't used in service to a man, the RIGHT man, she's either killed or turned into a monster. I'm tired of it.
I was SO hyped to read this when I started. It was like a slap in the face.
But well written. Yeah.
