Inhaltsangabe zu „Sourmouth“ von Cyle James

* Previously ranked in Amazon's Top 100 in the "Occult-Horror" category * A dysfunctional American couple are on vacation in quaint Bowen Island, British Columbia in effort to save their young marriage from falling apart. What they hadn’t expected alongside their picturesque scenery was to get so involved in the local culture. What begins as a turn of good fortune from a bizarre stranger becomes the start of a nightmare as the couple comes face to face with the horrors of their fellow man and more importantly an old native legend. The couple find themselves facing off with a creature unlike anything pop culture had prepared them for. But the question on their minds isn’t whether or not they can kill it. It’s whether or not they can take advantage of it for their own benefit before they have to put their lives on the line. Sourmouth is a unique take on the werewolf genre, where there are no silver bullets or full moons to stem the tide of horror.

    In order to mend their damaged marriage, Violet and Riley are going on vacation to Bowen Island. But then their hotel reservation is nowhere to be found and it seems they have to return home early. Out of pure luck, they encounter a strange woman who owns a house on the island. Though she is very reluctant at first, the couple manages to convince her to rent them her house.Of course, that soon turns out to be a mistake, and weird things start to happen. By accident, Violet an Riley awaken some centuries-old legend, and soon the very creature appears - at first only in the mirror, but, of course, it wants to come out...Things I loved about this book: the original concept, thus everything about Sourmouth, including the legend of his creation and of course the creature itself. I wished there would have been even more detail. Also, the writing was skillful and flawless, so reading the story went fluent and fast.Thing I didn't like about this book: Violet and Riley's attitude. What would you do if you encountered strange goings-on in an old house and started to see a creepy, possibly dangerous creature everywhere? I surely wouldn't just stay put to 'experience the adventure of a lifetime'. The arguments between the couple where tiresome, sometimes even bordering on ridicule.So while I savored the scenes where Sourmouth made an appearance, I tried to go over the dialogues as fast as possible. In the end, this was an entertaining creature feature with some fresh ideas and an original kind of 'monster'.(I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
