Tuesday Apocalypse was so good I loved it I was automatically hooked by the blurb, and the book definitely followed through It kept me on the edge of my seat It was a bit creepy, but so captivating I dived in head first into the world that Miss Cross created I liked all of the crazy characters The book was set during the time of Hitler and the Nazis So while all of the killing was going on, aliens was taking over the characters I really enjoyed the twist and turns through out this book It always kept me guessing.I love the writing style of this book It was written in a diary format Usually I can t get a feel for first person books, but I really liked it It was action packed, and there was never a dull time Between people being killed, going missing, or being taken over by the aleans, it was all so exciting.Over all I really liked the flow, plot, characters, and just the book itself I definitely recommend this book You will be entertained Book provided by author for review. Vicy Cross can tell a story Her words collide together and string out pure prose writing that makes you want to read again A romance erotica, a historical masterpiece with a lovecrafting touch of a parasite tentacle monster I m not going to give a huge description of the book Read the synopsis and trust me this will be a book you will give you a memorable read With Cross s likeable characters and amazing writing.Also check out my updated status quotes from the book Paranormal romance, gothic horror, and era based fantasy, what could you ask for I discovered Vicy Cross through recommendations from author friends of mine Rich Bottles Jr Lumberjacked and Wol vriey Vegan Zombie Apocalypse who made glowing reviews about the book and sparked my curiosity Tuesday Apocalypse was my first exposure to Vicy Cross and I can say that I really enjoyed her writing style It was written much the way a diary reads and one could draw similarities to Lovecraft, Poe, and Stoker speculative fiction and dark fantasy The key difference in Ms Cross work is that her erotic scenes are fantastic and panted in a highly visual way, especially when told from the first person standpoint of a nun There is an interesting thread throughout the story of taboo, social norms, and crossing them Tuesday Apocalypse takes risks and I greatly look forward to future works put out by this author Gary Lee Vincent, Author of Darkened Hills In the war weary year of 1940, just one rundown hospital survives London s collapse Sister Barbara, a nun and volunteer nurse, inspires hope in her patients, but that faith is shaken when an unidentified aircraft explodes near the hospital The half eaten corpse beneath the mangled wreckage appears to corroborate the pilot s story that some sort of tentacle monster attacked his plane However, Sister Barbara pushes these dangers aside and plunges beyond the rubble when the man she loves disappears in the wastelands She discovers a bloodstained beauty in his place but the girl s outward innocence hides a voracious sexual appetite, and an even disturbing secret This book was not at all what I expected, and yet compelling all the same When I added this to my Xmas wish list, what I expected from the cover was a historical lesbian romance What I got was a bizarre and sometimes horrifying monster porn tale that captivated me for its out of the box weirdness than for any personal kinks of my own I m not usually one to go for tentacle tales My usual tastes revolve around consenting adults professing their undying love for one another Yet this sexy horror romp had me on the edge of my seat at times, even as I hid it from my coworkers lest they get an idea of what I was reading and be scandalized by it The historical angle is for color than anything If you pick this book up, what you will be getting is some forbidden m f romance since the main character is a nun , and some m f, f f and f monster porn A lot of the erotic fantasy in this book revolves around Sister Barbara wanting sex she s not allowed to have The horror angle is not for the faint of heart, either There s death, tentacles, bodily fluids and an alien pregnancy of sorts The action is at times visceral and gruesome, but one thing I ll give this book is that once it gets going, it s a non stop thrill ride I could never claim to be bored and I had to keep reading like one stares at a bloody car accident with eyes that cannot look away from the horror The writing is fluid and seems fitting for the era, with Sister Barbara shocked at the things happening all around her and writing it all down in her diary.Having finished it, I still can t say I ve become some sort of overnight convert to monster porn, but I am intrigued I d say I would definitely try this kind of book again, though I have to be in the right mindset to appreciate something like this in all its horrific glory instead of just being outright disturbed by it.If you re looking for an unusual read that s heavy on the sex and horror, Tuesday Apocalypse might be your perfect wet dream I don t recommend it to the easily disturbed, however This review was cross posted to Infinite Love. The writing style of this book is Gothic and reminded me of Bram Stoker s Dracula Like Dracula, however, it shared the element of an incredibly stupid narrator Attractive Kind Courageous But stupid I like the tension between what the reader knows and what the narrator knows, this novel pushed it too far for me, explaining things away as dreams or confusion, despite the clues stacking up.The setting and story I found odd Nun 1940s Plane crash Tentacles Intriguing I immediately added it to my want to read list.I soon got into the story and the way each chapter opened was electric, keeping me reading even when I said that I would stop the for evening The sex scenes were amazing and intense The connections between the characters, their motivations and personalities, were all entertaining.The horror was reminiscent of many things I m thinking of a number of horror movies, but I don t want to spoil the surprises I ll leave it as saying that I thought they were effective and fun and creepy.I ve not read any tentacle sex horror before and I think was probably a great introduction In summary, I d recommend this The narrator s lack of insight about what was going on around her, or at least her refusal to face up to it, didn t seem believable to me I enjoyed the story though it had great sex and amusing in the best way horror scenes S Okay, so I m not a fan of books written in first person who cares Okay, so this is written in old school mode it s literary classical horror, and the author seems possessed by the ghost of Edgar Allen Poe who cares So it takes place in 1940 who cares Okay so there s a soppy romance included who yeah, you guessed right.So I utterly hate the end who cares Seriously, who f n cares It s tentacle erotica horror porn Bed to bed fiction, with plot and monsters included for added flavor lol That said, this is a delightfully written book The author has great descriptive flair, and can tell a good, gripping story The characters are well painted, the imagery is brilliant, the atmosphere is deliciously gloomy, etc.But once again Yeah Who cares Dudettes dudes just read this book for the sex scenes They re awesome Nuff said. It s funny how our literary tastes change as we get older I remember trying to read Dracula when I was young and finding the style boring, and then trying again as a teenager and finding it far too literary, and then reading it a third time as an adult and being delighted by it The epistolary format is an unusual one, and I think Vicy Cross takes some liberties with it here, but it s absolutely perfect for the tale she tells.Personal, intimate, and full of atmosphere, Tuesday Apocalypse is a magnificent story that works on so many levels or perhaps layers romance, drama, erotica, and horror This is not a story that bounces around between those genres, but which embraces them all, and blends them together, often within the same scene.Reading this reminded me very much of enjoying Stoker s masterpiece for the first time I was unsettled by my reactions, uncomfortable with my own thoughts, and often unable to reconcile my heart with my head I fell in love with Sister Barbara I wanted to reach into the book, cradle her softly in my hands, and carry her to safety At the same time, I wanted to drop into the book, hide behind the bombed out ruins, and watch her being violated by Tuesday s alien tentacles It s not easy to titillate and terrorize within the same scene, but Cross does a lovely job of forcing us to see both sides of the encounter.The slow, creeping madness the insistent, wanton seduction the gleeful violation of vows the tortured desire to succumb to temptation the desperate pleas for salvation the anguished attempts to hold onto something of one s true self Cross offers us all of that and I loved the many layers beneath which she allowed her evil to creep, robbing Barbara of her sexuality on so many levels Here we have a young woman already tempted by betray her vows by a handsome young man, who suddenly finds herself lusting after gasp another woman, and who ultimately finds herself fighting the urge to surrender to tongues and tentacles Wow and oh, my.I don t imagine Stoker ever dreamed of writing something this explicit, but there s no denying that the two tales share a lot in common For him it was teeth that pushed the edge of taboo, while for Cross it s tentacles that do the same thing His seductive sense of evil may have come the grave, rather than from beyond the stars, but they both have the same horrifying impact This was just a gorgeous story, and one that is bound to give you the chills and I mean that in every sense of the word.
