Rattus New Yorkus

Rattus, New Yorkus
One Size Eats All #2
by Hunter Shea
Genre: Horror
They’re Bigger
Deep in the sewers of New York City, the rat population is growing. Dr.
Randolph Finch is determined to break the cycle. His new rodenticide,
Degenesis, doesn’t kill rats. It sterilizes them from reproducing.
But nothing adapts faster than a New York rat . . .
They’re Smarter
City exterminators and soon-to-be divorced Chris and Benita Jackson think
they know how these rats think. They know how rats breed. And they
fear that Degenesis has only made these rats stronger. More
aggressive. More intelligent. And more ravenous than ever . . .
Tonight’s Dinner Special: Us
After a noticeable surge in rat den activity, the Jacksons witness
something strange. Without warning, the rats disappear—only to
reassemble in a massive lair beneath Grand Central Station. Millions
upon millions of them. Working together. Operating as a hive mind.
Feasting on the flesh of the homeless below—and planning their
all-out attack on the unsuspecting humans above . . .
Raves for The Montauk Monster

My Review

5 stars

The rats are a huge pest in New York City so scientists think they have found a way to stop them. They created Degenesis, a chemical that makes the rats sterile. To dispense the chemicals, city exterminators Chris and Benita Jackson have been selected. But after the chemicals are out, they notice that the rats have disappeared. Could this have been what they needed all along?

Nope, Degenesis has make them more of a hive mind, horny, and craving flesh. They start on the homeless at Grand Central Station and will be working their way through the rest of the city if not stopped.

This is a great, classic horror story. I loved every minute of it and would love to see this made into a movie, maybe a B movie on SciFi Channel. You have a couple bickering and about to be divorced, a chemical that worked perfectly on lab rats but has mutated the wild city rats, and a ton of human flesh craving nightmares.

I can’t believe that I have not read one of Hunter Shea’s books before. Well that is going to have to change. I loved the romp through the sewers and the rest of New York trying to stop the rats. I can’t wait to see what else Hunter has come up with.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

Silencing Anna


Silencing Anna by Sadie Mitchell

Voices surround Anna as she lies on her hospital bed, but she cannot answer them. Her voice has been taken, along with her mobility and her sight. She can hear the nurses chattering and her family that come to visit. Her mum cries a lot and her dad struggles to deal with what he sees. Life used to be good for Anna, but life can change in a heartbeat, as she knows so well.

And then there are the people we think we know. When the smile hides the anger. When the beauty hides the beast.

Only Anna knows the truth, but Anna cannot speak.

My Review

5 stars

Anna is in a coma. She can hear those around her but she can’t communicate with them or even move. There is a clear sense of panic as she is trying to figure out what is happening and how desperately she is trying to communicate with everyone around her. Then the story goes into Anna and Dylan’s relationship. They are a cute couple and good for each other. But then James comes into the picture. He is an all around jerk but Anna falls for him.

James seems like the perfect guy but then his true colors start to show. He is abusive to Anna and Anna tries to get help but then she starts making excuses for James. She does try to find some help but gets nothing for her efforts. Slowly she starts to change too.

This is an amazing read. Sadie Mitchell does a wonderful job conveying all of the emotions of this story. I have to say that when I first met James I couldn’t stand him and wouldn’t have tried to get together with him. As we follow along with the abuse I see common behaviour between both parties. This was written beautifully. I admit I felt for Anna, she seemed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. But as the story progressed I have to admit that I got frustrated with her since he just kept going back.

If you like thrillers I recommend checking this book out. There are triggers with the abuse but is it written so well that you could almost see text book behaviour.
