Descripción del producto
Rebecca thought she'd find a hippie paradise when she moved to the desolate back hills of Humboldt County. A place to commune with nature and teach her five-year-old daughter how to live off the land. Instead she discovered a nightmare.
Coyote is a washed-up pot grower. Strung out on pills and dealing with dropping prices and looming legalization, he wonders if it's even worth it anymore.
Diesel Dan abandoned his son for a life of methamphetamine and prison. Now he wants to make amends. He's going to be a grandfather. But his son is on the same dark road of drugs and violence that once consumed him.
These characters will come together in an explosive ending that will leave you stunned and breathless. But more than just a gripping horror novel, Kind Nepenthe is a deep examination into the nature of love and greed, lost ideals, and the essence of evil in one of the last frontiers of the American West.

What else can I say about this? Lots of things – it’s well written, shocking, and at times it’s reminiscent of The Shining, though this story is its own beast. The characters feel real, and even when they’re making poor decisions, it’s always clear why they’re doing so. Mr. Brockmeyer obviously put a lot of thought into their motivations and actions. For those of you who are already familiar with his short stories, you know that they’re dark, melancholic, and a hell of a lot of fun – Kind Nepenthe is no exception. Get it, you won’t be sorry.
This book is beyond dark. You can feel it sucking you in like a desperate, greedy lungs-full inhale on a meth pipe and it just keeps pulling and pulling. You know you need to escape its clutches but it's irresistible so you keep on reading and trying to catch your breath and you're getting pulled further and further in and down.
This noir tale takes place in the backcountry of Humboldt County, California and is full of drugs, self deception, more drugs and oh, yeah...ghosts.
Don't read this until you're in the right mood - down and dreary - because then it will be a short trip to reach that spot by the end of the book. It's really brilliantly written but this defines dark in all new ways.
I received this book from Black Rose Writing through Net Galley in exchange for my unbiased review.
This book is everything I expected and more. He is a master at writing horror. I even had nightmares the other day about this book. Not even lying. I woke up at 2 am, sweating and everything and I couldn't fall asleep because I was thinking that the creepy little boy would be staring at me while I slept. I had to put on an episode of dragon tales to soothe my nerves. It sounds like a joke but that's how it happened except it was an episode of my little pony and not dragon tales. Anyways, this book is amazing,anyone who reads this story will fall in in love with Mathew's writing style and storytelling skills.
Kind Nepenthe is like nothing else I have ever read. It blends so many fantastic genres; horror, paranormal, contemporary fiction, mystery fiction, crime fiction and is just one of a kind in my humble opinion. The plot slinks around your mind slowly, infests your brain until you are so absorbed you lose track of time and place. I was supremely impressed by the way Matthew V. Brockmeyer has paced this book, he builds the scene and location beautifully and introduces us to key characters until we feel like we have known them for a really long time. There was not one boring moment reading this novel.
The more the plot unraveled, the more different characters came into play, the more creepy moments that were inserted to give me chills the more enthralled I was. It takes a hold of you and doesn't let go. I was very impressed with the obvious research that the author has done for this novel in regards to the illegal marijuana growing industry, the detail is stunning. You can't help but see and smell this illegal world when reading this book. I probably now know more than I would from a non-fiction book on the subject and freaking loved it!
Our main couple is watching over seasonal marijuana crops. There is a young child with them. In a cabin, pretty much in the middle of nowhere land. A land of modern day hippies and rednecks.
But they are not alone where they are, there is something sinister, dark and brooding at play. The spirits have been stirred. Something wicked this way comes. As the work and location become more oppressive, it starts to really impact on the relationship dynamics between this loved-up couple and a beautiful bouncy spirited child. Something is not right.
You know I don't do plot spoilers but I have to tell you that there is a point in this book where the pace just starts to be cranked up and up. I was sucked in and mesmerized, frantically flicking pages on my Kindle, desperate for more. I could not have predicted any part of this book, certainly not the exceptional reveals and twists that really make this book something very special. The ending and lead up to the ending was just mind-blowing! It shocks, stuns and takes your breath away. It was so visceral, so visual and at times not easy to digest. It was very powerful imagery. This book NEEDS to be made into a movie. I am happy to do the casting for it.
Kind Nepenthe is a novel that would be enjoyed by anyone who loves their books. If you particularly like your fiction with a dark tinge, a touch of horror, ghostly things that defy explanation then you will absolutely love this book. I loved Matthew's writing style, his imagination and the delivery of this novel. 5 whopping great stars from me, this goes down as one of my all-time favourite books
