"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Jack and Kauffman are a pair of typical teenage dirtbags. An afternoon of joyriding and hanging at their favorite haunt goes unexpectedly awry for the two when they stumble upon something truly hair-raising… and it only gets stranger from there. “Dead Girl” is short, fast, filthy fun with a dark twist I loved. If you’re into weird and not easily offended, definitely give this short a read!
Dead Girl isn't at all like anything I've read before. It is erotica, and it is about a vampire. But it's so much more than that. Dead Girl explores an issue (no spoilers) that will have most people cringing, but Pavarti handles it expertly. I've no doubt she's going to take some heat with this one, but I'd proudly stand beside her. The writing is solid, the structure is sound, the characters are fully fleshed out, the dynamic is believable, and the conflict is subtle but strong, its resolution satisfying and, honestly, pretty freaking hot.
I recommend this book for women and men who don't blush at the first hint of controversy. Dead Girl isn't for the faint of heart, but very rewarding for the bold, open-minded reader.
Before I get to the fun part, let’s chat a bit about what transgressive fiction is. I would argue transgressive works today are written in the vernacular. That is to say, they are written for the every day person. There are no cookie cutter houses, or white picket fences in these stories. That is unless there is a teenager cutting themselves or a group of people squatting in a repo in the dying suburbs of Detroit. Or perhaps a couple of teenagers with raging hormones and not thinking outside of their own little bubble finding an apparent dead girl inside their “hideout” and …. *spoilers*! Putting all of this together takes talent. The balance is so precarious in a work of this length, one wrong word could have turned something dark and beautiful into something which doesn't just push boundaries, but crosses them.
Part of me wants to keep writing and get all analytic with this. Discuss the metaphors and the symbolic aspects of what the Dead Girl represents and the actions of the boys compared to societal norms and expectations.It has been five days since I read this story and I can still see everything in my mind. This speaks volumes for a short story. But the other part of me, the fangirl part, wants to squeal all over the page and tell you all to get thineselves to Amazon and grab a copy… seriously, go get a copy!
In this amazing short, Pavarti was able to weave an experience with all the hotness expected in erotica, the shock of societal taboos, and the apprehension and fear of a horror story with as much meat on its bones as a full length novel. This solidifies Pavarti K. Tylers place in authors you should be reading.
This contains violent erotic horror and ummm well .. I cannot tell you, it would be a spoiler! BUT it has triggers so if you are curious what kind, ask. But then again.. DEAD GIRL… two teenage boys and erotica, you do the math! (told you it was transgressive).
Tyler gives us the right mix of “I don’t give a F” from the boys’ attitudes, with their disregard for laws and societal conventions of polite behavior: egging each other on in their need to not appear ‘soft’. The slow awakening of the “dead girl’ as awareness dawns and her hunger struggles to be satiated are so clearly detailed that readers can feel the awareness and tension increase in the cave.
I don’t quite know how she packs heat, tension, action and solid points of view into this short story, but Tyler continues to reaffirm for me her status as a must read author.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

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...Read more
