Book Review: Cleaving Souls by Chauncey Rogers

I want to thank Chauncey Rogers for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity. All views and opinions expressed are my own.

Some dangers you cannot outrun. Some nightmares do not end when you wake.

Something is watching Katherine Harris. She can feel it when she goes out. She can feel it inside her home. She feels it in her bed. Her husband, Alex, wants to blame her anxiety on her pregnancy, but he’s often away for work. He doesn’t know what it’s like to be stuck in a small town, to be trapped in a tiny house on a run-down street, to be alone. Kat does, and the feeling only grows worse.

Whatever is going on, Kat’s certain that it’s far more serious than pregnancy jitters. When Alex takes Kat on a second honeymoon to get her mind off things, it becomes far more dangerous as well.

Review: I give this book 5 out of 5 Horror Stars! I just want to say Wow, this book is nothing that I would expect it to be. This book surprised me from beginning to finish. Once I got down and settled last night I was able to read this book in one sitting and lost a night’s sleep!

I couldn’t sleep because I kept wanting to turn pages but I also couldn’t sleep because this book had me paranoid as heck. Everytime one of my animals moved I was startled and thinking there was something strange in my house.

This book had a Stephen King and Dean Koontz kind of feel to it. The book was well written and kept your attention through the whole story. The characterisation was great. I really for the life of me could not figure out what was going on with Kat, was she losing her mind or was there really something bizarre going on! Then there came the twist and I was left like this…

I am glad I decided to read Chauncey’s horror masterpiece and I thank you Chauncey for the nightmares! If you are a fan of horror and suspense I would definitely recommend checking out Chauncey Roger’s Cleaving Souls!

            1. I know, I shouldn’t but I was feeling so down about myself and that was just so mean. Thanks for defending me. I just replied back and I flagged him as well. I just don’t see the point of saying something like that. I want to change the picture so bad now but then I will look weak…😭

    1. Hey Dani, thanks so much for the review! I’m so glad that you enjoyed my little story. 🙂
      On a side note, I’m really sorry about that idiot on Goodreads. I like to imagine that bad guys only exist in the stories we read, but unfortunately that isn’t the case. You’re a perfectly lovely person, inside and out. Don’t let some loser’s asinine opinions and comments let you feel down about yourself.

I’m sorry that there was that drama on the review I posted for your review.😢 I flagged his comment. I know I shouldn’t let it get to me but I battle low self-esteem.

          1. Haha yeah well I was just telling Kim not too long ago the gore is usually good for a laugh from me. I’ve watched/’read horror all my life so not a lot can even give me a slight chill. 🙂

            1. I have watched so much of it and I’m still scared. lol. So this might beba good suspense in your book then! lol but it for sure had me guessing the whole time and trying to figure out what the hell. lol. I’m reading me a nice Christmas Historic Romance Novella to try to even out that I saw on NetGalley. I think it’s called “Lady, it’s Cold outside”. So hopefully it will be good!😊 Hope your next read is great and your weekend Carrie!😊

            2. Haha you’re talking to someone who for years got their head chopped off night after night every Oct. Blood, guts and gore are fun!! 🙂 And that sounds like a good book for the holiday, I’m doing witchy magic stuff right now with Deadly Sweet….not horror or scary though. 🙂

  1. Okay….wow! This really, really sounds like a book I want to start reading right away, right like now 😂 I love horror/thrillers and a book that has left you sleepless I really want to check out (not that I think it’s nice that you lost sleep over this mind you 😅). Your review was so good…and those GIFs were so funny, especially the last one 😂😂 Amazing review from an amazing woman 😊😍😊
