Editorial Reviews


Reviewed by Sylvia Heslin for Readers' Favorite

For second-generation Goth princess, Emylene Stipes, life is anything but normal. Born to first-generation Goth parents, Vandy and Theo Stipes, Emylene, their only child, is rebellious and is revered by the Goth community. "Perverse" by Larry Rodness is a story where myths meet legends, and those legends then become truth. Nineteen-year old Emylene wants an identity to call her own, an identity that is not an extension of that of her parents. Seeking the need to be independent from her parents and all that goes with it, Emylene ventures out on her own to start a new life. Lured into an antique shop owned by an elderly man, Emylene sees a mesmerizing old canvas charcoal sketch in the window of an antique shop, and decides to buy it. From that instant life for Emylene and that of her parents will never be the same. Mysterious footprints appear in the snow out of nowhere, and three cloaked men and a strange girl in the picture sketch is just the beginning. And if a picture does speak a thousand words, the horror that is unveiled is only the beginning for Emylene and will forever change her life. 

The book "Perverse" written by Larry Rodness is a dark, haunting, supernatural story that I really enjoyed reading. The story of Emylene and the cursed sketch is what dreams and nightmares are made from, and this story really does put a classic spin on the "be careful what you wish for" mentality. I think that "Perverse" is well written and that Larry Rodness has a clever way of telling a story that is clouded in mystery, fear and anticipation. Although I didn't start out liking the character of Emylene Stipes, as the story line progressed I started feeling empathy towards the character and was routing for her success. I really liked the way author Larry Rodness wrote his different characters, and how they made the story line of "Perverse" that much more interesting. I am sure "Perverse" will appeal to a variety of age ranges, from the older adult to the older teen.

About the Author

This is the second novel by Larry Rodness after "Today I Am A Man", and his forth publication beginning with "Canadian Voices" anthologies, Books One and Two.
