The Taste by Alan Orloff as Zak Allen


The Taste by Alan Orloff as Zak Allen

From Good Reads:
After his mother dies, Jake Wheeler returns to his birthplace of Dark Springs, West Virginia, seeking solace among his kin. But his family’s unique comfort food includes some ingredients Jake's not sure he can stomach.
They eat dead people.
Discovering that skeleton in the pantry and adjusting to a new diet turn out to be the least of Jake’s worries. Storm clouds have gathered over Dark Springs, threatening the family’s peaceful existence. Ax-wielding clan patriarch Dallas Pike and his band of renegade followers have decided upon a violent plan to increase the dwindling food supply. Why wait for your next meal to die naturally if you can hunt it down instead?
With the survival of the entire clan at stake, Jake wages war against madman Pike.
He also battles an even more terrifying opponent.
Himself.
After all, Jake has THE TASTE.

My Turn:
I must admit I was fascinated by this book, ( and a little sick). The characters were well written and despite my turning stomach I found myself caring about several of them. The story line absolutely held my interest. I would say this is an Indie book that lets you know just how good Indie Authors can be. It is a horror story that has family loyalty, family feud, love and suspense mixed in. It was a different read for me - most of the books I read lately where someone is eating someone deal with zombies - which made it refreshing. I really enjoyed this authors style of writing. I think you will too, if you are into horror stories.
