Story – 4.2 Stars

“Degenerate” by Rayne Havok, is not what I expected. I thought I’d get something along the lines of SplatterPunk with some dirty bits thrown in.

But this is more like SplatterSpunk!

Better yet, how about I describe it as Horrotica. (Is that a word, already?)

Recommendation – read and believe the warning!

Disturbing and disgusting

This is definitely a twisted warped book. This tested my limits. Rayne can surly make your skin crawl. You dirty little minx!
I highly recommend this author to all who love horror.

Cannot think of a more apt title..

Another deeply disturbing tale from Rayne Havok. What a blast! I will be creating a shelf on GR as I fully plan on reading every title I can get my hands on by this author. :)

Well this is a great read and not for the easily offended or faint hearted. But it was a great little read and one sick character. But you get so immersed you at first feel empathy for him. You can understand later why he is as he is. Well written with some real nasty parts. All in all a great read, definitely recommend.

Porno For Psychos!

Wow what a vile character Tyler is. He starts out asinine and misogynistic and is a million times worse by the end of this story.

I love that a woman wrote this story and perfectly captures the dark essence that unfortunately resides inside a lot of men.

I don’t want to spoil the plot as it’s best to go blind into this, but look out, this story has teeth and isn’t afraid to bite and try and rip a chunk loose from you torso.

“Degenerate “ takes you to quite a few disturbing scenar
This is a rather disturbing read, but not really for the reasons the other reviewers have stated.

The book is short, only around 130 pages. But the real meat of the story doesn’t begin until after the 50% mark. This is way too slow for a novel and even worse for a shorter story.

The main character, Tyler, is immediately unlikable. He is arrogant, cruel and misogynistic. His behaviour is deplorable and did nothing to engage me with the story.

I almost stopped reading at 47% as the story was so slow

So twisted and kinky. Honestly it started out and all I could think was "This guy is a prick, where is this going?" then it gets to the good part and I was like WHAT???? Don't want to give spoilers but you'll either be repulsed or aroused, or both. Damn you Rayne! ...more

Wickedly twisted and warped. Havok always shocks me and I can't get enough. ...more

I’m a Rayne Havok fan, but this one wasn’t a favorite. It was interesting, but it’s mostly just dirty sex (not that’s anything wrong with that). The story felt like something was missing. I didn’t hate it though.

This was my first read by this author. What a mind-f*ck of a story this is! It was dark and twisted, sexy and sinful. There were some things I definitely did not see coming and the ending was not what I expected at all. I highly recommend this author to lovers of sick and twisted reads.

This Book Was Very Different. A Very Short, Yet Unique Read. It Was All Kinds Of; Brutal, And Revolting. But Some How I Couldn't Stop Reading! There Were A Few Times I Skimped A Few Pages (Tyler And His Sexscapades)

Trigger Warning: (view spoiler)

Full of gory and gross thoughts that need to be put to paper, she writes all the time to clear space for the new stuff. She is a huge fan of horror and loves to be shocked by all things 'extreme'.

She's all about the bloody and gruesome, but also loves sprinkling it with taboo and gratuitous sex.
She is a little psychotic and a little sweet, lives in Phoenix Arizona- but doesn't get out much for fea
