Review: Viscera

Viscera - Gabriel Squailia

So apparently I'm just into body horror this year? Right after I finished The Stars Are Legion I picked up Viscera. Twitter promised me vivisection, and twitter did not steer me wrong. 

 

This book starts with a boy murdering a lone woman in the woods and watching his mentor carve out her organs to trade for drugs. And I even want to tell you anything past that, because it's all so interesting to see unfold. Let's just say everyone has made bad decisions and nothing goes according to plan. It's that kind of book.

 

I am really pleased with the level of weird, gory books falling into my hands recently.
