Soup by Kate DeJonge
Ashley McCormack was brutally abused as a child, but she's found a way to thrive as the sadistic Assistant Coroner at the City of Changusay morgue. Convicts from a nearby maximum-security prison get shanked on a regular basis, and Ashley loves to play with their remains, picturing her estranged father with every slice of her scalpel. When the morgue is updated with the newest in "environmentally friendly" human disposal systems, the Alkaline Hydrolysis HT500, a fellow member of her dark web death group makes an offer she can't refuse. No really, she can't.
I want more!
Absolutely amazing. I was hooked completely.
I absolutely LOVE revenge stories and if you do as well, this story is for you! This story is about a girl, Ashley, who has a very abusive past childhood. Her past makes her mute to others around her, so she focuses on two things. One, getting out of her childhood home and never looking back. Two, putting everything she can into her education in order to achieve her dreams of sweet revenge. And, she does just that. She leaves town as soon as she graduates high school and puts her self through college. She immediately lands her dream job as a morgue assistant. Ashley absolutely loves her job and she also loves entertaining her “friends” on the web with her sick stories of discarding bodies of rapists and murderers. She receives a once in a lifetime opportunity to fulfill her dream of horrific revenge against the terrible people in this world by turning their bodies into soup. How, you ask? How is it even possible to turn human corpses into soup? Well, you’ll just have to read and find out! I enjoyed this story very much and I can not wait to see what the future holds for Ashley!
"Soup" by Kate DeJonge. I was sent my copy in exchange for a honest review. Ashley McCormack highly enjoys what she does for a living. Without her career as a Morgue Attendant she'd have never been able to fulfill her desire of treating the rapists the pedophiles after death the way they truly deserve, or more importantly how they should have been treated while living. Lester Dubois, Ashley's boss, will be retiring soon and it couldn't have came at a better time. She'll have the pleasure of learning a new method of disposing of human remains - Aquamation. I considered telling you more here, but best to find out on your own. Read it if you dare. This story blew me away. I wasn't expecting the creativity or the ending that left me needing more. I truly think that's my only complaint about this story, it just ended too soon for me but it also left the perfect gateway for a sequel . I was also surprised to learn that Aquamation is in fact an actual method of disposing human remains. I think this story would be perfect for the upcoming fall season, especially Halloween. It's super creepy and outlandishly shocking.
What would you do?
Soup by Kate DeJonge. Wow. Kate has a great writing style. This story is intriguing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I can’t wait to read more from Kate!!! Possible spoiler alert below. Effluence of human. What would you do with it? The intended use for it is disturbing enough to think about. But what if you could market it? Apparently it’s a primo market and Ashley is about to drive right in!! Edit
I knew as soon as I started reading this that I was going to like it, but I was wrong....I loved it!! Ashley was a misfit as a child, dealing with abuse from others, mainly her father! She develops a fascination for death, and, now, as a mortician she can indulge her fascinations and exact her revenge in her own way, and on people that abuse others! She also likes to keep little trophies to satisfy her needs and make her feel better about what she is doing! When new equipment is installed in the mortuary, Ashley jumps at the chance to get trained on how to use it, and it attracts interest from sinister places. She receives a private message from an unknown source, with an offer, a morbid yet interesting offer, an offer she can't really refuse! Maybe it's time for a career change…..catering maybe? This was a dark, disturbing, yet cathartic tale. It hooks you from the very beginning, and as Ashley gets in deeper and deeper, you are completely immersed in that journey with her! I really liked Ashleys character, I felt real sympathy for her! A deliciously depraved quick read, that gave me Rayne Havok vibes too. But….I need more!!!! I need to know what Ashley gets up to with the freedom of her own funeral home….
