This Symbiotic Fascination by Charlee Jacob

This Symbiotic Fascination by Charlee Jacob
1997, Leisure Books

Synopsis: It's a terrible thing loneliness is. Tawne Delaney: A woman filled with the hatred of herself and what she's not... Never touched by a man, never loved, until one night in the woods... Tawne watches as a woman's body is crammed into a drain pipe... A crooked and broken beast beckons to Tawne and passes on his gift to her. Is it the ultimate power or the cruelest joke? Arcan Tyler: A man tormented by the memories of an insane mother and haunted by the ghosts of a dozen women not yet dead... Struggling with the rage of three beasts, controlled, for now... Once friends and co-workers, Tawne and Arcan now unite as lovers... Along with each other's body, they share each other's secrets: Arcan, his beasts; Tawne, her power... Is it the love of dreams or the sheer terror of a nightmare come to life? Whoever said undeath was "The Nightmare Beautiful" was a lying son-of-a-bitch.

The Good: Disgusting, disturbing, and utterly twisted, fans of really hardcore horror will love This Symbiotic Fascination. Everything about this book is extreme and graphic and over the top. You feel like you are in this middle of this book, living this nightmare. Totally in your face, engrossing.

The Bad:This book is so extreme, it occasionally feels like Jacob is trying too hard to shock readers. The writing and plot progression don't feel natural a lot of the time. And honestly, once a little time has past, the story itself is forgettable. All that you take away from this book is the skin crawling feeling you got while reading it.
