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.
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!
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.
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!Read more ›
I don't usually read or review erotica but, in a previous review of the author's White Chalk, I made the claim: "I'm a big fan and will read anything else this talented writer publishes." So, when she emailed me offering a review copy of her new story, I couldn't refuse.
This is a quick and easy read, but there are a few too many editing errors for a work of this length. The author develops the characters just enough to make their unusual behavior believable. While some may cringe at the subject matter, the author handles the situation with simplicity and elegance. I still stand by my earlier claim.
Warnings: drug use, coarse language, explicit sex scenes.
I received this book in return for an honest review.
