Ahoy there me mateys! I received this horror eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. So here be me honest musings . . .
Title: nothing but blackened teeth
Author: Cassandra Khaw
Publisher: Tor Nightfire
Publication Date: TODAY!! (hardback/ebook)
I was excited to read this novella around Halloween time. The pros for this book were the concept and cover. The cons were the execution and characters. I didn’t love the writing style as it was a bit purple prosy. However, the major issue is that I actively disliked all the characters and thought they were selfish and immature. I have no idea why they were friends at all. There was too much focus on character backstory and not enough focus on the ghost bride. I finished this one cause it was short but was bored. So this one walks the plank! Arrr!
So lastly . . .
Thank you Tor Nightfire!
Goodreads’ website has this to say about the novel:
A Heian-era mansion stands abandoned, its foundations resting on the bones of a bride and its walls packed with the remains of the girls sacrificed to keep her company.
It’s the perfect wedding venue for a group of thrill-seeking friends.
But a night of food, drinks, and games quickly spirals into a nightmare. For lurking in the shadows is the ghost bride with a black smile and a hungry heart.
And she gets lonely down there in the dirt.
