City of Hunger

by Jon Athan

WARNING: This novel contains graphic content. This book is not intended for those easily offended or appalled.

Traveling through rural Montana, Blake and Susan Hanson stumble upon a small, abandoned town known as ‘Bobcat.’ Eager to kill time before meeting their family in Washington, they decide to explore the town. They find broken down cars, looted stores, and raided houses—and blood and bones. It looks like the town was raided and pillaged, and they fear the raid isn’t over.

There are people in that city. And they are hungry.

In this vicious horror novel, Jon Athan—the author of Cannibal Creek and Spit and Die—brings you into the early nineties to meet the old and new residents of Bobcat.

First of all, thank you for doing cannibals, not zombies!

This was a lot better than I first expected. I should have learned by now – When it comes to my favorite authors, most of the books that I’ve put off reading for one reason or another have turned out to be pretty awesome! (See Matt Shaw and his DEN series!) Still, I don’t think I was totally invested…srry.

The story takes place in the ’90’s, but the characters sometimes act like they just stepped out of an ’80’s horror flick 😝 Seriously, though, there was a bad decision or two made here, enough for me to tell at someone through the pages. But where would stories go if not for their characters going rouge and getting into trouble.

It’s really weird to think about how close Bobcat really is to another city, and civilization. Don’t dwell on it though, you’ll start to get angry, lol. In that sense it reminds me of M. Night Shyamalan’s THE VILLAGE.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Clarence, an unemployed junkie, needs to find some quick cash before the last of his stash is used up. Finding quick cash is, fortunately, something that Clarence is still adept at. Tonight’s venture out wasn’t as lucrative as he’d hoped, but, hey… scoring some bottles of pills ain’t all bad! And, these extra needles will always come in handy…
When he wakes up next, the withdrawal sickness seems to be the least of his worries!
Here is an alternate cover I found, too…
