I received an ARC from Immortal Ink for a review of Eating Sarah. I did not meet their deadline, however, so I bought a copy. 1) out of guilt, and 2) because I have a difficult time reading pdfs on the Kindle.
Firstly… LOVED the concept of this book. A cannibal has a change of heart? Doesn’t want to eat her prey anymore? Maybe even likes the person she’s supposed to eat? WOW.
But the titular character is a little too wishy-washy to root for. Her resolve lasts the length of a page (or a click of the button, as the case may be). During her greatest moments of peril, I hoped. I wanted her misery to end, but I also wanted mine to end as well.
The writing was very good. Jaret will certainly be one to watch. The epilogue of Eating Sarah hinted at a sequel, but I’d like to see him explore that world from a different angle.
