I was given this book by HorrornNovelReviews.com in exchange for an honest review.Zari Uadjit Beautiful Snake Goddess That s the name of our heroine, Zari Why is she called that, you ask It s because she s comes from a family whose every member has a snake inside of them that slithers out of their mouths to feed on whichever unfortunate they catch Zari wants no part of this She doesn t have a forked tongue like they do, so feels she has a chance at a normal life She ran in the middle of the night and left her family far behind, found Emmett and married him He s the love of her life and she loves her life with him He s an English professor She makes quilts by hand which she sells at the local market In their spare time, they fix up their home and make love Emmett has his own scars Literal scars from a violent childhood at the hands of his mother s boyfriend Zari knows about Emmett s abusive childhood, after all, she s seen the scars She just doesn t know how to tell him about her own childhood That she ran away from a family of snake people and that now she feels them getting closer They come to her in her dreams and her nightmares are bleeding into daymares The past has a long reach Zari s family has decided that she is going to join the family business, no matter who they have to punish or how in order to get her to come back.Zari and Emmett found each other and, so far, they ve managed to wind a cocoon around themselves and keep each other safe Until they re in the middle of the most ferocious tornado that ever hit their little town She gets seriously hurt during the storm and he accompanies her to the hospital In a coma caused by her supernatural family, she feels Emmett is still with her Until her family manages to twist his heart inside his body Zari is terrified when she can no longer feel him and she promises her family anything if they will only keep him safe You know the old saying Be careful what you wish for, you might get it.If you have a snake phobia it might be hard for you to read this book They slither up out of the throats of the snake people and down the throats of whoever they find That s how the snake people get their nourishment.It s a fascinating story and hard to put down Ms Kinney is such an accomplished author that we don t know if love or evil will triumph until the last chapter This is a book that s worth your time. Everyone should read Slither By Valarie Savage Kinney one of the most Amazing books i have read Entirely engrossing from the start,Slither gets inside You , wraps itself around You I could not put it down on the edge of my seat doesn t even begin to cover it with each chapter the story deepens, The characters become a part of You, and Their struggle becomes Your own each new twist and turn adds a depth You couldn t begin to imagine, Slither has wound its way around and into my heart, and it will Forever have a place Terrifyingly Awesome, i don t want to give any away, Seriously go and read it, You will know exactly what i mean This was a unique view into the world of the supernatural Although, I think a bit back story about the choices the family made long ago might be useful This is not an erotic novel, so those expecting that anything supernatural must include lots of adult scenes will be surprised Slither is well organized, the characters are well thought out, and the story is well told with a few plot twists along the way It is quite interesting and a good read that goes quickly but still leaves you feeling as though you ve truly read a book instead of just a short story. The way I would describe this book is a very unique story that will keep you on the edge of your seat I really enjoyed this book, it s not a storyline that I usually read In fact, I don t normally read paranormal, I do love horror which this is kind of a mixture of to me I never knew what was going to happen next Our main characters were Zari and Emmett A normal married couple just trying to have a normal marriage, or so it seems Zari is hiding something big about her family, how will Emmett react when he finds out What is Zari s big secret I loved Zari and Emmett together, they seemed so perfect together I could really feel the love between them I really didn t think this book would make me emotional but parts of the book I just wanted to jump in the book and hug Emmett or Zari and just tell them everything was going to be fine They are both broken characters and both their past are so sad From the first page I was drawn in and I had to find out what would happen next I loved the suspense with the element of horror What made me give this 5 stars besides the intriguing storyline was that these 2 characters that were so unbelievably broken healed each other This wasn t just a horror story to me, it was also about overcoming your past Valarie is an amazing storyteller and this will not be the last book I ll read by her. Delightfully twisted To say this story was good would be an understatement , this is a fantastic story l an immense emotional rollercoaster ride This is truly a must read Valerie Kinney takes the reader through a small part of a couple s life, a couple who seem to have been created especially for one another They ve suffered incredible abuse throughout their childhoods that has left them bruised and scared but not broken Together they find they re stronger than they imagine when they find out they are going to have a child Sari has kept her family s dark past from Emmet, a past that has come back to haunt her and her family Zari s ruthless evil family threatens when the child is born they will come for the child and take Sari s life They consider this Zari s repercussion for running from the family when she was younger instead of taking her rightful place with the Slither After all, Victor Webster started, Everything we do, even the slightest thing we do, can have a ripple effect and repercussion that emanate If you throw a pebble into the water on one side of the ocean, it can create a tidal wave on the other side Now, the family will take the baby to fill Zari s place, whether she likes it or not or at least they think However, when Emmet finds out about all of this, he has no intention of letting Zari s twisted family touch his wife or child.This is a well written, delightfully twisted story that is a definite winner.

I m not going to lie This book freaked me out a little bit I am not fond of snakes They re on the list of creepy crawlies that I don t like so the thought of a snake hanging out in your body waiting to come out and do some bad stuff is a lot to take in Especially the idea behind it being some strange snake god who is in control of it and requires being fedpeople s insides That s right It goes down their mouth and eats their insides Disgusting right But it makes for one interesting horror type story There s your love interest between Emmett and Zari Zari is our main character and I have to say that she is a strong and brave character, but so is Emmett Both have had to suffer huge injustices because of their families and got away from it Well, Zari thought she did until her family showed back up and because she doesn t want to pledge her allegiance to Slither, they want to take her baby when it s born This book was pretty crazy messed up but it was an intriguing read and I would give a good 4 stars Well, we all know I love my horror, cutting my teeth on horror comics and classic films to diving in head first with authors like Stephen King and Dean Koontz For me, crafting a great horror story is about the unknown, creating characters we care about, as well as characters we despise, and creating a sense of confusion and deflecting from a predictable course through a believable but engaging plot line with many sub plots A combination of these will create a great read, which Valarie Kinney has done in SLITHER.I loved the main characters, Zari and Emmett They were wonderfully flawed and each was dealing with their own demons These were people I would like to know, despite being very different from me The villains were truly dark and twisted individuals, giving any great horror author s creations a run for their money The supporting casts were also fully fleshed individuals who enhanced the read, adding to the plot My only issue is that I wish there had been interaction with the villains I wish we had been given information about their history, were there any of them, etc I think that would have been really cool, as this is such an original concept and mythology and again, you all know I love good mythology , but this is my minor issue Overall, this was a great read and I would definitely recommend it to any and all horror Fans. Much than a horror storyA fascinating story that kept me on the edge of my seat and was impossible to put down.The well thought out and unique plot twisted it s way through this well written book.The main characters were well fleshed out, each had their own flaws and abusive pasts to deal with, but worked wonderfully together to help and heal each other.The villains were dark and menacing characters and easy to hate.
