Chase Novak, the pseudonym of prolific novelist Scott Spencer ( Endless Love ), masterfully straddles the careful line between horror and literary fiction in Breed. Here, Novak slowly, savagely peels up the pretense of the Upper East side of Manhattan with unkempt claws and bloody teeth, gruesomely satirizing a wealthy couple's selfish quest to preserve their privileged legacy through any means necessary. With an impressive body count, lyrical descriptions of gore and mayhem, bestial children, and a basement macabre enough to give The Silence of the Lambs a run for its money, here is a novel for anyone looking to take the Urban and Romance out of Horror.
