Review copy provided in exchange for an honest review.
Jason Parent has a way of grabbing me from the first chapter and not letting go. I’ve read many of his books and he mixes the horror and thriller genres as well as anyone. Last summer, when I read A Life Removed I thought it was his best book. Now, I think They Feed has replaced that top spot. I read a crazy amount of horror and I look forward to being shocked by what writers come up with next. What I got in They Feed gave me the chills and turned my stomach. From the detailed descriptions of carnage in the characters deaths, Jason set the stage with some damn frightening creatures. The creatures were enough to make me question going into the woods in the dark!
There were a whole cast of characters here that made this horror landscape perfect. We get plenty of characters to hate, and a few to root for. Abigail was a character I really disliked because she was so cold and had so little care toward her husband. Then in the end, she did a 180 and suddenly missed him and forgave him for everything, which didn’t feel all that believable.
They Feed quickly established the feeling of the 80’s horror movies I loved growing up. The characters are all flawed and few, if any, deserved to survive the madness in the woods. As with many horror scenarios, the group was at odds with each other and some tried to come together to make it out alive. Overall, I really enjoyed this book, and it hit all the check marks for me. I loved trying to figure out who would survive, who would die, and because I’m a bit crazy, which order they would fall! This is a book I can easily recommend for any horror fan who loves a good dose of gore, and if you like Jason Parents work you won’t be disappointed.

The night uncovers all we wish not to see.
A troubled man enters a dusky park before sunset. A young woman follows, hidden in shadow. Both have returned to the park to take back something the past has stolen from them, to make right six long years of suffering, and to find justice or perhaps redemption—or maybe they’ll settle for some old-fashioned revenge.
But something evil is alive and awake in those woods, creatures that care nothing for human motivations. They’re driven by their own insatiable need: a ravenous, bottomless hunger.
The campgrounds are full tonight, and the creatures are starving. Before the night is over, they will feed.
An unrelenting tale of terror from Jason Parent, acclaimed author of People of the Sun and What Hides Within.

Cool, I’m in the mood for a quick blast of old-school horror after slogging through Unbury Carol. Great work, David.
