Mouth Full of Ashes by Briana Morgan
A Tasty Morsel Of The Macabre
Horror Bookworm Reviews https://horrorbookwormreviews.com/ After a tragic accident upended their family life, siblings Ramsey and Callie relocate with their mother to the sleepy seaside California town of Neap Bay. While adapting to their new surroundings, the local Starlight Boardwalk quickly becomes the family’s epicenter. However, unusual behavior from a number of the local residents begin to emerge as well as missing persons posters. Hidden secrets are slowly exposed to the innocent and unexpected. Mouthful of Ashes is a vampiric tale of agonizing regret, passionate bloodlust and the undead feeding on the essence of the living. Author Briana Morgan’s fast-approaching clouds of dark fiction cleverly blends a family’s adversity with a sinister folklore of modern sexuality. The retro 80’s vibe brings the Boardwalk to life by capturing the sights, sounds and smells of something darker and deeper dwelling within its seaside amusement park. This intrigue draws the reader in as the characters drive the plot at an accelerated speed while maintaining a continuous horrific storyline. Embodying strange people, strange places and strange times of night, Morgan’s fang piercing story not only lulls the reader into a new way of life but turns itself into a desire of nighttime existence. These preternatural souls that prey upon others are a pleasing infatuation that we all have for creatures of the night. Those who like a little extra garlic with their stake will thoroughly enjoy this tasty morsel of the macabre.
