Hahahaha! Had no clue what to expect and spent most of the story saying wtf and laughing gleefully by the end. A little bit of humour and a very dark imagination. Not for everyone but I loved this one. Williams has a wonderful voice and style ... And a very twisted humour. She is fast becoming a favourite author

A professor of environmental studies meets Lena, a beautiful French chef who seems more interested in spending time in the woods, feeding the wildlife and philosophizing about food chains, than she does in actually cooking! This sexy (and funny in parts) but increasingly dark and creepy story is told in a third person narrative and from the professor's dog's point of view. And as the story progresses, readers realize that Chile the dog is the only one who knows something is wrong with Lena. I ke ...more

This is a little darker subject matter for this author than previous writings, but she does it so well. Her research was spot on, and how she unwinds this novella is amazing, OMG. You really don’t know how the story will unwind or end. Ms. Williams imagination is startling, in a good way. She can spin a paranormal/fantasy tale and I can’t get enough it.
I am waiting for another full-length novel from her. Actually this novella could be a lead in for a full-length book in my opinion; however, thi

Interesting read

Not quite what I expected and certainly took me a while to finish. I enjoyed previous books by this author but not this one so much. It felt disjointed and lost in the scientific and then left threads unanswered.

"The Feeding" is an engaging story that draws the reader in through a developing romantic relationship between two of the main characters (the third being a smart dog whose thoughts the reader wonderfully has access), but an underlying growing unease becomes fully manifest and the story takes a dark twist and picks up speed. Williams’ writes with an attention to detail and, for a short story, packs a lot in -- romance, humor, a little sublime terror – and resolves it to satisfaction.
