Did I really give a book with this type of warning 5 stars? ..

Fifteen-year-old Hillary Greyson awakens from a horrific nightmare to the realization that she's been kidnapped. Panic-stricken, Hillary tries to remember...SOMETHING!.. Plagued by fear and confusion Hilary's emotions intensify once Dr.Morrison ent
Shelby *trains flying monkeys*'s not often that I admit that a book kicked my ass. This one not only kicked my ass. It picked me up and body slammed me.

I don't think my measly little mind will ever be the same.

At about 67% percent..I almost gave up. But what did I do? I kept reading the dang thing.

This book is NOT for everyone! Don't say you weren't warned. just slayed the evil queen.

3.5 stars
This book was really good, but it is not for everyone as it is downright gritty, psychological, twisted, and so gore infested that some people will be having night terrors the rest of their lives!

So definitely HEED THE WARNING that if you can't take anything that has to do with, rape, torture, and cannibalism then do not read it. This book is not a romp through fairyland, it is a romp through the most worst serial killer's mind you could ever imagine. When reading this book think of Jeffrey Dahm

I have read a good amount of Horror,abusive,twisted books in my life. But This book Made all the "horror" stories that I've read like a walk in the park...


How would you react, If one day you woke up in a unfamiliar place: Naked, tied to a bed. barely moving your limbs. and on top of all that you can't remember who you are??!!.. (I would be scared shitless)..And that's where Hillary Greyson found herself..

Waking up to face two complete strangers. Hillary would do anything to escape
5 -Most Imaginative Torture Ever- stars!!!

First of all....

Bravo, Angel Gelique!!! You have a beautifully warped mind! I am still gagging and in awe of some of the things I read about. That was some of the most brutal scenes ever described. After reading this, there are certain regular household items that I will never be able to look at the same way again! Kudos!

Oh boy, where does this girl begin?
I will just give the barest minimal plot.

Hillary, a teenage girl, wakes up from a nightmare to face a new reality. She is nude and tied to a bed, with no memories of who she is or how she got there. The doctor caring for her tells her that she is restrained for her own good, but offers no details or hints of how she came into his care. Hillary is encouraged to remain calm and to try to regain her own memories. Once they do come back, there will be hell to pay. Even if you like your horror vicious and in explicit detail, this novel will ...more

They’re not lying, kids.

I read this because Shelby told me to. Well, not really. Actually, I’m pretty certain she tried to do the exact opposite, but I’m a glutton for punishment so I read it anyway. What did I find upon clicking the old Amazon one-click?

This is unequivocally the most galling and sadistic book I have ever read. What's more perturbing is how engrossing it was and how much I actually enjoyed it.
This engaging story will have you on the edge of your seat one moment, rooting for some, only to have you despising them later.
The story line and characters are brilliantly thought out. It plays out like a horror movie of the worst kind. The mental images you are sure to conjure in your mind, will with out a doubt, haunt your dreams for som

My own I can't write an unbiased review, though I'd like to think it is good! It is a gory, violent, sick, twisted and disturbing horror novel, so if you are easily offended, skip this one!

I'm still not sure how I want to rate this book, so I've listed a few different rating stars below. This is a book that I normally wouldn't read but I was craving something different and I got exactly that. I read the warning and still wanted to read it. I read the blurb and

The first 50% of this book was the calm before the storm. We meet Hillary a fifteen year old girl who has no memories of her life. She's being held by Dr. Morrison, his wife Monica and Dr. Bentley. I sympathized with Hillary and felt terrible about the way she was treated until...

I’m a huge Angel Gelique fan. Have been since I picked up and endured the emotional beatdown her writing gives you. If ever there was truth in advertising with books, Gelique’s are all that. The content is brutal but never salacious for its own sake. I’m never unclear about what is happening. The writing is ALWAYS a model of clarity and very very engaging.

And I’m never anything other than completely terrified about what the next word on the page will bring.

I like to mix up my diet of classic horror with material from new writers whenever I get a break in my reading, amd I've seen a lot of rave reviews for this work from friends on Goodreads, so I figured I'd check it out.

This is the first book in a trilogy.

I have to preface this review by saying that I'm a primarily story-driven reader. I like to get swept up in a plot that takes me to places I never dreamed I'd go when I started. I guess I like surprises when I read.

So it's my fault that I assume

The old adage of never judge a book by its cover should also apply to its summaries. Hillary: Tail of the Dog is by far the darkest, heinous and most disturbing read for 2016. This isn’t your typical feel good love story with an erotic twist.

You won’t find any happy, wholesome loving relationships or endings. Nope not here, instead you’ll be horrified with disgusting, gruesome events that takes place with a fifteen year old. You’ll experience her nightmares, traumas as the past collides

I've been meaning to revise my review.
This being the first book of this type that I've read, I was a little squeamish.
I shouldn't have let that affect how I liked the story & the writing.

It was very good, but I could have done without knowing what tortures a human being can inflict on others!!

This is by far the scariest, the most gory, mentally traumatizing book I've EVER read. As disturbed as I was, I loved it. Pay close attention to the warning the author puts out! If anyone is easily offended then don't even open the pages. I literally need to read book 2 right now! ...more

Hillary Greyson, just 15 years old, has been kidnapped and is now being experimented on by Dr. Morrison, his wife Monica, and a psychiatrist, Dr. Bentley.
She can't remember who she is or how she came to be naked, strapped to a bed, an unwilling patient. But her captives do and maybe it's best if she never remembers. Some things are best left forgotten.

The writing was surprisingly good. A few errors, but really well done.

The idea was also a good one. The execution though, left a lot to b

My short review for Book 1:SOLID 3.5 stars (rounded up to 4)

Tail of the Dog tells me this series will be something beyond the normal everyday horror fare. This is a dark tale that bring us to places we aren’t quite sure we want to go but can’t stop ourselves from exploring. Think “traffic accident” and the effect it has on the witness to it; you want to look away, but a morbid curiosity coerces you to read on. It doesn’t have a big reveal, or any major twists. It was apparent the author wasn’t

Dnf. Not because of the 'shock' factor, or the gore or the horror. The writing was stilted and jerky, with numerous punctuation errors and I was always aware that I was reading a story, instead of losing myself in the words. I found the start of the book confusing in that 'Hillary' doesn't seem to know who she is, but the writer uses her name throughout the story, as if trying to force the name on the reader.

Hillary struggled to remember her last memory and found to her horror that she could no

I received this novel from the author for an honest review.

Since I had already read Hillary's back story in 'Hillary: Flesh and Blood (Book 2)' I knew what to expect and savored every word.

Hillary Greyson is a 15 year old beautiful girl who upon waking finds herself tied tightly to a hospital bed in a room with no other furniture except for a desk. She is frightened, angered, and cannot remember who she is or why this may be happening to her. Her bleak existence comes to an end one morning when.

It feels wrong to say that I had fun reading such a dark, sick and twisted story but what the hell....I did. From the very first page I was engrossed in the story and could not put it down.

I went into this fairly blind. I thought it was going to be a simple abduction story (view spoiler)
