I loved this book, sure it is a romantic horror story on the surface but the moral issues it brings to light, Midian mirroring the homosexual community and how they were treated in the past, or some places still to this day (this book being published in the late 1980s) was interesting to read about when kept in mind. I felt an immediate connection and empathy for Lori and even though it was a short book there was enough detail for me to care about the other main characters. I enjoyed the sex scenes ;) and the horror scenes which were quite detailed and gorey in parts, though not enough to repulse me. It was quite an emotional read in parts as well as humerous imo but overall an easy, enjoyable read which took my full attention alhough I admit a bit predictable in parts.

I wish there was a sequel :(

I would recommend this book! :)

Not seen the film yet, may have to catch it sometime.
