Out of numbed, desensitized, stricken minds - in search of killing all essential humanity - the 'elder blow' was born. Rebellion against the drug is a bloody effort for two young sisters who have long sought liberation from its smokes and the dead bodies that result and pile. The winters are cold, the bludgeons are red, and hunger is an unbelievable phenomenon as these girls Out of numbed, desensitized, stricken minds - in search of killing all essential humanity - the 'elder blow' was born.

A dark and affecting account of bravery and of transformation.

    This was a re-read for me. I have altered my old review just a little bit: House of Flies has a very unique feel to it. This novella is so poetic, so powerful, I could not help but be moved. I reflected many times on how well the author communicated the harsh realities of the two main characters. Your are certainly right there with them as a reader. There is a quality to the words that is other-worldly, in the best way. I sincerely hope to see the third book in the trilogy come to light someday. This was a re-read for me.

    This is one of those books that needs to be read in one shot, if you put it down you are lost. Maybe not for all but you really need to pay close attention to the prose and different writing style the author uses. Two sisters are trying to stay away from a drug called "Elder" everyone around them are hooked and feel hungry without it. An escape from life gone wrong, the dealers, the cooks and the druggies. The theme song for this book should be "Temple of Dogs - Hungry" (at least the hook on a loo This is one of those books that needs to be read in one shot, if you put it down you are lost.

    Part one of three part bizarro novella series, Catalyst and Progeny, House of Flies follows two doomed sisters forced by family obligation into the middle of a growing trade of a fictional drug meant to make human emotion and feeling go away. With the novellas, the main aim has been to connect an idea I have obsevered, of "Catalyst and Progeny." A horribly negative cause and effect relationship between drugs, drug users, and the innocents that are forever maimed or lose their lives simply because Part one of three part bizarro novella series, Catalyst and Progeny, House of Flies follows two doomed sisters forced by family obligation into the middle of a growing trade of a fictional drug meant to make human emotion and feeling go away. With the novellas, the main aim has been to connect an idea I have obsevered, of "Catalyst and Progeny." A horribly negative cause and effect relationship between drugs, drug users, and the innocents that are forever maimed or lose their lives simply because they were born near or deep within a situation they could not/cannot easily escape. Supporting a drug or any sub-drug that eventually leads a willing individual to the path of another finer drug all contributes to the pain and suffering of so many. The cause and effect might not be seen, rather unseen, but it's there. I composed the novellas with words across pages and pages, all to essentially promote the advocacy of saying ‘no.’ ‘No’ to pain and suffering. ‘No’ to flies and maggots and murder. And ‘no’ to drugs.

There lives a rough and the story centers around fighting the desire to feed that hunger even though they are surrounded by temptation. The words are lyrical and metaphorical. And this is one of the many reasons I enjoyed this book so much. The second reason being the message that drugs are a world that is horrific and unrelenting.

    Even though this is a thin book, it's one that you want to take your time with. The story is one of regret, temptation, and the urge to simply exist, regardless of the circumstances. Rather than standing in the spotlight, the storyline meanders behind the poetic flare that draws you in and forces you to ponder each sentence. I found it intriguing how the characters where both simultaneously portrayed as being both weak and strong. Very enjoyable!!

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher as an ARC through Goodreads. Although this is a short book, a novella, it is by no means a quick and light read. The author does paints a very strong picture of the suffering of those who abuse drugs. If the reader takes the time, and reads in an uninterrupted setting, the message is quite strong.

    The format and wording of the novella was really confusing and bit random for my taste. I struggled through the whole time, and barely made it to the end. The plot was interesting and different than most things I've read, but I don't think I would be able to reread this again.

    I am not 100% sure how I acquired this book. I think I was contacted by the author directly, but I cannot find any record of it... Anyway, I have not read any of the "Catalyst and Progeny" books and I wonder if that influenced my reading of this book in particular... I am not 100% sure how I acquired this book.

    This was a very interesting book. It is definitely not for a casual beach read. You need to be fully immersed to understand what the author is conveying.
