It's prom night in the Demented States of America.

Robert Devereaux, Slaughterhouse High (Deadite Press, 2010)

There is no way I can turn in an unbiased review of this book. I've been a BobDev fan for over twenty years now, ever since Dell's short-lived, unreasonably fantastic Abyss line released his first novel, Deadweight, in the nineties. At the time, it was the most extreme thing I'd ever read. (And it stayed that way for almost ten years, until I was hit with the double-barrelled attack of Matthew Stokoe's Cows and Charlee Jacob's Haunter in

It’s prom night in an alternate United States. Each year on this night, in high schools all over the country, the kings and queens are slaughtered and dismembered in a ritual sacrifice. Only something has gone wrong at Corundum High. In the small Midwestern school a killer — traditionally a teacher specially chosen for the role — ignores the rules and goes on a killing spree. Only a few know the identities of the designated killer and king and queen, and no one knows who stalks the secret ...more

Slaughterhouse high by Robert Devereaux
Deadite Press

For most people high school is a painful experience, I am Keenly aware of this not just because I endured it myself but my day job as a para-educator in a high school gives me a daily view. It is a hard gauntlet that seems impossible to survive. When you are facing the four years of daily education and social indoctrination getting out alive can feel like struggle to survive a slasher movie. And what about the cream of the crop? The prom queen

Prom in the Demented States of America is an important event watched by the entire nation. The sacrifice of the young is a rite of spring, and an honor to their Lord. On prom night the chosen couple is slaughtered and bits of them are kept as souvenirs.
This year’s Designated Slasher at Corundum High is straying from tradition, and the bodies are starting to pile up. Once the students & faculty realize that everything about the night is going very VERY wrong – it might be to late for them all

If you're into dark, gory horror that actually has a story behind it (or two or three) you will want to grab this one. But know that it is not for those who pass-out at the thought of blood. There will be a lot of it, and details of how the blood appeared.
it's an abstract version of the USA, now the Demented USA. I shouldn't have to say anymore than that. In addition to all this there is a lot of sex, violence, mixed relationships and more.
Devereaux has done it again.

I found the first half of the book very confusing - too many people with weird names, didn't understand the society or culture. By the second half though it all made sense and I was able to enjoy the mystery, nuances and finale
