AWRW Way Back Wednesday Book Review: Rigor Amortis, A Dark Erotic Anthology #ZombieErotica

Way Back Wednesday is a Book Meme created by A Well Read Woman with the aim to write mini book reviews on books read in the past, that left a lasting impression.

You know what kind of books I am talking about… The ones that you have read multiple times, and they still bring you nostalgia. Books like these are the reason you enjoy reading.

So grab that old-dusty-yet-loved-book off the shelf, glance it over, write a mini review, and join in with me on Wednesdays! EVERYONE is welcome to participate.


1.) Discuss a book you read in the past that left an impression on you. You can write a condensed review if you prefer.

2.) Tag your post as “Way Back Wednesday” and include the vintage AWRW Way Back Wednesday button, (above).

3.) Link back to my blog, and this page.

4.) Include instructions, (copy & paste everything above), for others to participate. 🙂

Maybe rigor_amortisa tender love story is your thing, a husband doting on his wife’s rotting corpse. Or perhaps a forbidden encounter in a secret cafe, serving up the latest in delectable zombie cuisine, or some dirty, dirty dancing in the old-time honky-tonk. Voodoo sex-slaves and vending machine body-parts? You’ll find those here, too.

Whatever your flavor, these short tales of undead Romance, Revenge, Risk, and Raunch will leave you shambling, moaning and clawing for more.

When I checked my rating on Goodreads, I saw that I only gave this anthology three out of five stars. Regardless, this was a book that stuck with me. (Hard to imagine that a zombie erotica would leave an impression on me, right? *Snark*

zombie love photo: Zombie Love 527839_526621167388341_189790743_n_zpsa7b7ad37.jpgRomantic zombies, horror and erotica; this book was REALLY weird… Not that I am complaining, I do like weird! 🙂

This isn’t your ‘typical’ romance book, but the writers of this book certainly have a TALENT to weave the dark and macabre into 34 tales of love and erotica, divided by four categories; romance, revenge, risk, and raunch.

And raunchy it is…

I would read this before I went to sleep at night and let me tell you, I had some pretty interesting dreams! This book certainly isn’t for everyone, but a select few, (18+), could certainly enjoy it.

Purchase, if you dare!
