Eh?! So this was basically the best worst Christmas present I ever got.

I'm laughing, but I'm not really laughing? Can you laugh and be traumatized at the same time?

Curiosity definitely killed this cat. Fuck.:D

Earlier ramblings
Gorram it, why is The Bride still not on Kobo?! I feel like vandalizing a random bus shelter.

Just added this book to GR database. I am still waiting for it to be available at Kobobooks or any other ebookstores before I am able to grab it. Can't get the paperback since the shipping to my place is not feasible.

I am so dying to read this. Please please I beg you, don't make me wait too long ヽ(*Д*)ノ

What to say about this book? The family in it reminds me of the one in Texas Chainsaw Massacre, especially the creepy old dad. The two brothers are the heart of the story - and I want more. The sex is disturbing. The story is sad, sick, and delicious. Also, it makes me wary of policemen.

Basically, nothing you wouldn't expect from this wonderfully twisted artist/author duo. Enjoy.
Wait, no, that did not just happen...


Yes. Yes it did. Holy fuck.

Yeah, you know what I'm talking about. And you know I loved it.

I don't have words.

Don't read this if you...
-...are uncomfortable with dub-con/non-con.
-...want to keep your faith into cops.
-...need a HEA. hichhiking.

But if you like some mind-fuckery you should definitly check this out!

Twisted and kinky on so many levels. I hoped I'd find another novel like Father Figure, that's twisted too but so intense I couldn't move on to my next books after reading it. The Bride was good and okay, I guess. The old man doing that thing sure creeped the life out of me, the cross-dressing was my squick actually, well not really, but the relationship between those brothers did the magic :3 Not to mention they are all beautiful, thanks to Jo's illustration.

The shipping is freaking expensive

This was way too tame;-) I have come to expect a from these two creators, and The Bride didn't quite live up to what I've read before.
Maybe I'm the perv here, since I thought some scenes could have been more "on-the-page" and graphic than they were now.
Still, the story (if somewhat done before), was compelling and quickly drew me in. It was unfortunately so short I never got much depth. Hopefully there will be a sequel sometime, since there is definitely material

Yep, this is still the most disturbing thing I've EVER read!

This story is not for the faint of heart.

In fact, that twist ending left me so off guard that I stared at the page for ten minutes before it fully registered in my mind that the story was over. Wow.I did not see that coming.

Jesse, a stranded teenager on the highway is convinced by this Cop to ride with him to his childhood home where he'll go to visit his family. Maybe there, he thinks, he'll be able to borrow a phone. As they pull up to the house, which is located far off the road in the middle
Don't know how to describe it but


CAN NOT WAIT the bride's sequel

I never reviewed a book before but here it goes... After reading some reviews,I couldn't wait longer to read this, so I decided to buy this on G|P ebook store, since they recently made it available. I'm happy I got this as a PDF format. The novel is really short and took me less than an hour to read. I was expecting a little more, it didn't really leave me with a suspense of what the fuck just happened. Don't get me wrong I love kichiku Neko' and TogaQ's work, I just wish they could have let us ...more

it was really short and a bit twisted like something you see in a lot of horror films. i'm having mixed feelings about the ending though..
