When two boys find a body in their childhood hang out, they decide to have some fun, but get more than they bargained for.




This a twisted little bit of erotica and I loved it. At Fourteen pages long there is not a lot of room for anything extra, but somehow the author manages to cram in enough detail about the two main characters that you get a sense of who they are and what they are about before they even get their hands on the living dead girl in their favorite hangout,


There’s not much to complain about this story as long as you like erotica that does not conform to the simple formula of two or three people having sex. There is definitely some twisted stuff in here that is not for everyone, be even that is a matter of perspective.


It is a quick read, but for $0.99 it is well worth it. It is not for the meek or those who don’t like erotica or vampires, but if you like them both, this is the perfect story for you. I just hope that there is something more to this that the author will share with us further down the road.

Brought to you by Hot Ink Press, DEAD GIRL is boundary pushing, it’s sexy, it’s violent, it’s of questionable taste, and I think you’re going to love it.

Book Review: LoveClub

This is a first for me. I am going to put a  caveat at the beginning of this review. The author is Hungarian and writes in Hungarian. I do not speak Hungarian. The copy I received was an English translation, and I am willing to assume that some aspects of the translation did not come off perfectly. When you read my review, keep all of that in mind.

100-Word Challenge, Day 230-232

Margaret got up from her seat and straddled Thomas’s lap. She slowly unbuttoned his uniform shirt as she said, “Revenge. I’m going to have my revenge, and you, my dear Thomas, are going to help me.” Before he could speak she kissed him.

Thomas had been kissed before, he had even been kissed by women more beautiful than Doctor Vo, but he could not recall a kiss that’s warmth spread throughout his entire body the way hers did. It was more than simple arousal. The sensation of her spirit filling his body came to mind and it changed his desire to need. Time lost its meeting to him as she removed his shirt and dragged her fingernails over his chest. The pain only enhanced the pleasure of her kiss. Continue reading “100-Word Challenge, Day 230-232”

100-Word Challenge, Day 226-229

Thomas licked his lips and took a deep breath before he said, “But we passed the turn for your home a while ago.”

“My, but aren’t you a clever one,” Margaret said as she stretched out. Her arms were above her head and pointing toward the rear window, her back arched and her feet ended up beside the security guard’s legs. “Mmm, excuse me, but it feels like I’ve been sleeping for days.” She sat up and winked at him. “I guess I have been,” she said with a smile. “Why don’t you come over here and sit beside me.” Continue reading “100-Word Challenge, Day 226-229”

100-Word Challenge, Day 223-225


Margaret sat in the back of the hover-limo and stared at the barren landscape as it moved past. A tickling sensation at the back of her mind made her think that once, long ago, the moon had been a fertile place filled with plants and animals, but she shook off the sensation. Luna had been a lifeless rock even before it had crashed into Terra and always would be. There was not enough organic material on the surface, or beneath it, to grow an egg crate herb garden, much less any sort of plant life capable of creating breathable air.

Book Review: Exmortus: Temples Diabolic

A powerful hand grabbed him by his shirt and lifted him back onto the dock. Ash’s limp body was thrown roughly to the ground, the key snatched from his hand. A moment later Ash was again airborne and moving rapidly down the docks, watching the white demon fly over the water towards him.

A weak rasp escaped Ash’s throat.

“Kill me.”

A shrill laugh echoed off the stones of the small alleyway they had ducked into.

“The most exquisite death is a long life full of powerless regret, Ashley of House Xavier.”

Todd Maternowski. Exmortus: Temples Diabolic (Kindle Locations 2304-2308). Unknown.


I’ve heard it said that you can never run away from your past. The things we do stick with us for the rest of our lives, even when we try to hide and create a new life for ourselves. When Ash left his life behind him, he was still very young, but his transgressions were not forgotten and in the midst of his new life being destroyed by men and gods alike, an old enemy has found him and is determined to teach him exactly what it means to suffer.

 Exmortus: Temples Diabolic is the second book in Todd Maternowski’s Towers of Dawn series, and it picks up right where the first book left off and the frenetic pace continues on with all of the brutality I’ve come to expect from this series. The gritty, brutal, ugly reality of Ash’s life is shared with enough detail to make some readers flinch from the pages, but it is that very discomfort that gives the story, and the writing, its power. The author does an incredible job describing Ash’s pain and the tortured decisions of a youth still holding onto the hope of something more than pain and death.

Like the first book, the characters are well defined, unique and a perfect fit for the dark, violent setting that Exmortus takes place in. When the end of the book arrived it felt like a natural place to break, but I couldn’t help but want more.

You can buy the book in Kindle or Paperback here: Exmortus Amazon.
