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!
