Book Review: They Feed by Jason Parent

Awful people get eaten!! What more could you want right now?


They Feed by Jason Parent
Creature Feature Horror Fiction
Released by Sinister Grin Press, April 2018
Amazon ♦ Goodreads
The night uncovers all we wish not to see. 

A troubled man enters a dusky park before sunset. A young woman follows, hidden in shadow. Both have returned to the park to take back something the past has stolen from them, to make right six long years of suffering, and to find justice or perhaps redemption—or maybe they'll settle for some old-fashioned revenge. 

But something evil is alive and awake in those woods, creatures that care nothing for human motivations. They’re driven by their own insatiable need: a ravenous, bottomless hunger. 

The campgrounds are full tonight, and the creatures are starving. Before the night is over, they will feed. 

An unrelenting tale of terror from Jason Parent, acclaimed author of People of the Sun and What Hides Within.

My Thoughts:

This monster romp was populated with mostly despicable people whose gruesome deaths were so much fun to witness. We all need a little of this sort of thing in our lives right about now, am I right?

Deep in the woods lurks a nightmare that doles out death to those foolish enough to venture into the woods looking for some rapey, murdery, torture-filled times and to a few innocents as well (but no worries, you won’t be crying about any of these deaths).

Tyler, newly released from a long stint in prison, revisits the woods that landed him in jail to try to make sense of his past but unbeknownst to him, he is being tailed by someone with revenge in their little black bitter heart. Also headed into these woods are a couple who really should NOT be together but their psychologist thought it would be good for them to spend some time in the outdoors (I think these people must share the same doctor of bad advice as the man in The Bird Eater). And then there’s the group of toxically stupid frat boys doing what they do.

“Things lived in the woods. Things with sharp teeth.”

Oh yesssss, come on in vile people! Come on in and get eaten! The sooner the better for me.

The fun starts up soon enough and doesn’t really let go until the last page is turned. It’s gory and nasty and gleefully fun if you’re in the mood for a creature feature starring shit pancakes and tiny tentacled beasties.

  10. Dislikeable people getting killed off in the woods? Yes please. Question is, on a scale of one to ten, just how terrible are the deaths?
