The Vengeance of Cassidy Clay is a narrative poem that takes place on Halloween. The poem tells the story of a slave-hunter who haunts the woods long after his death and many more spine chilling tales.
This audiobook was provided by its narrator, Victor Warren, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. Thanks, Victor!
From the early morning hours of the new year, straight through to the end of the year, and rounding it off with a truly horrifying Christmas - this compilation of short stories has it all.
From the word go and the overlap of a ring tone on top of the narrator's voice, I was hooked to this audiobook. Each short story (or poem) in The Feast has its own unique little twist that grabs your attention in such a way that you will be hard pressed to switch off the book.
New Year's Day introduces you to a bit of a tool who has obviously been planning his mission for some time. It also contains one of the few things in the book that I found annoying. Throughout the short stories the author tried to maintain the integrity and mystery in the audiobooks by glossing over some things - this made the continuity of the book suffer a bit. In the beginning of the first story, our MC walks to the front door - thinking that maybe it is his wife and she had somehow lost her keys - which should be impossible as he KNEW it couldn't possibly be her. Little things like that through out the stories took some of the enjoyment away for me. But not so much that I didn't still love it and wouldn't recommend.
I loved how each story was in no way at all the same as the next one. From planning the murder of your loved one, to completely losing your marbles and taking out your innocent neighbour for acts they did not and were not planning on committing - if you like horror stories, ghost stories, icky gross and creepy stories - then The Feast is for you.
As mentioned - I gave The Feast 4 stars. I would however like to give the narration 5 stars. Victor Warren was absolutely amazing and his gravelly voice gave me goosebumps and chills in every story he read. His voice drew me in, in such a way that I was practically living the stories with the characters.
All in all The Feast was an epic, great listen.
