I'll have a full review posted soon!
**I received this audiobook in exchange for a honest review**

I did not finish this book. it opens with a very violent and explicit scene. that was a shocking opening. then, it continues to be very sexually explicit. that's just not for me. this may be a good book, I just don't think it's my cup of tea.

Review of FEAST
by Thomas S. Flowers

Whenever I open a story by Thomas S. Flowers, I don't know what theme, character, or plot to expect (the man's imagination is wide-ranging), but I do expect that the story, whatever it is, will be deep—and wide; rather like a river than a tiny crick. I also know that, like a river, deep within will be soil and grit and mud; personal and family secrets; and horrors unexpected. So too is FEAST, Mr. Flowers' latest, which commences with a bang (quite literally),

Feast by Thomas S. Flowers is a disturbing story centering around 2 families in Texas. It’s violent from beginning to end and I enjoyed it immensely. At just a smidge over 100 pages, it’s a quick and easy read, and it is the type of story that is difficult to put down because it moves so quickly.


This story is crazy. The son of one family wronged the daughter of another family. Her family is determined to ruin his family business, Big Butts Bar-B-Que despite the fact they had nothing to

Feast, by Thomas S. Flowers, is a horrific tragedy centering around the mutilation of a young boy, with bloody nightmares caressing a guise of endless wealth and fortune.

Titus Fleming, the owner of Big Butts Bar-B-Que, has recently lost his son in a terrible murder suicide, a son who was also the heir to his restaurant. In order to prevent losing the family business, he decides to arrange a marriage for his transgender son, Lavini

I have received a free copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.

This is the tragic story affecting two families, due to some misunderstandings and somebody prone to breed quarrels. Titus owns a successful restaurant called Big Butts Bar-B-Que. Sadly he has just lost two of his sons, one in killed in war and the other committed suicide after harming and disfiguring Anna, his girlfriend. To make things right for Anna and her mother Tamora, Titus proposes

*Disclaimer- I received a free copy of this book for a fair and honest review*
In this extreme horror story, inspired by Shakespeare's tragic play, "Titus Andronicus," Flowers gives us a slightly absurdist take on the classic tale of two devastated families hell-bent on revenge. This retelling requires some suspension of disbelief on the part of the reader, as the author weaves core elements of the classic play into a modern setting (instead of an empire, there is a BBQ joint at stake here). Ther

While not the most extreme I have read, definitely not for the faint of heart. Still, as I am not a huge reader of this sub-genre, I was still able to enjoy it so maybe there is a message in that. The pacing and the setup for the book is great and the length is just about perfect. There were a few moments that I wish the motivations of the characters was a little clearer but that didn't prevent me from enjoying this. Take this one on at your own risk. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Great horror story! Two families are dealing with tragedy. Both want revenge on the other. In the end, revenge is best served with BBQ! This book gets pretty gory and has some very erotic scenes, so unless you're alone or using headphones, be aware of your surroundings! I'm not sure if this is considered extreme horror or not, but it was pretty extreme! Great narration by Rick Gregory!
Texas is known for many things, especially it’s barb-b-que. The Fleming family has a legacy of great bar-b-que to uphold with their restaurant Big Butt’s Bar-B-Que. Now that legacy is threatened as Titus has lost two of his sons and his third son doesn’t show much interest in carrying on the business. Others conspire to steal his hard-earned wealth.

This is a horror story first and foremost. If you’re squeamish, then this is not the book for you. Also, there’s a graphic rape scene. For me, this s

Special Sauce!

Two crazy red neck families fighting over a Barbecue business leads to a bloody, backwoods Texas battle, resulting in carnage and mayhem. Gruesome, bloody, and sadistic, and written like something Herschel Gordon Lewis would release at the drive-in, this is a colorful, entertaining, and fun read. I loved it!

This is my first time reading anything by author Thomas S. Flowers and won’t be my last. He is most known for his popular “Subdue” series, so fans should be prepared for this extreme horror story. Oh, and it does contain extreme horrific and graphic content. This is terrifying human horror and a sad tragedy all around. The very climatic ending had me emotional.

The author touches on subjects going on today such as; small rural towns going out of business, family feuds, homophobia, being transgend
