MY STAR RATING
In this town, I’m free from shame
A place where everyone knows my name
Glamorizing corpses to feed a need
That’s why they call me Skeleton King
They all worship me, but they don’t know the real me
All they see is my painted face
Truth is, I’m terrified, all the hope inside me died
Death and cold will forever be my morbid fate
Then she showed me something more
Somehow stealing deaths allure
Trigger Warning: This book contains many triggers and this warning should be taken seriously. The sexual and graphically depicted scenes in this novel are not for the squeamish and will be disturbing for some readers
I have been a little (okay, a lot) in love with Charity B ever since I read R.I.P. and when I saw this here book, I was like please, please be good!
You know how sometimes you find a new author and you’re like “Oh yeah baby, this is my new stalking victim!”, just to find out that the rest of their books were a little on the ‘meh’ side?
Well, I needn’t have worried because this wee gem was everything I love in my guilty pleasures!
- Non Consent
- Fairytale Retelling
- Major abuse of all kinds
Great line up, lol an all-star cast so to speak.
And of course, this story is a retelling of Jack Skellington so there’s that awesomeness too.
So Jack is a taxidermist. Nothing fucked up about that, right?
Usually, I’d agree but in this case, he taxidermies humans!
So right from the beginning, I was like “Alrighty then! Let’s get this party started!” While rubbing my hands together in glee.
And the shit just gets weirder and more fucked up the more you read, mwahahaha! (< insert evil cackle).
Poor Jack. He lives a rather sad and lonely life and no one seems to realise he’s pretty much just going through the motions.
Or more likely they don’t care because this town is chocka-block with narcissistic sociopaths & psychopaths, lol.
He’s lonely and has had a heck of a time trying to pull the pieces of himself together as an adult after a rough start with a cruel and heartless mother with an uber-religious streak
Guys, she fucked him up bad 🙁 I mean what happens to a person to make them feel that their only chance at intimacy and acceptance is to boink a corpse?
“I wish I could make you come alive so I don’t have to pretend to have intimacy anymore.” That’s something I would never admit aloud to anyone that could repeat it. My being with women whose souls have left this earth is not only a large part of who I am, but it’s also my only source of affection.
And although there is nothing funny about mental and/or physical abuse from a parent (or anyone actually) when she calls his tiddler (that’s a Geordie word btw) a ‘flesh ferret’ I may have snorted out loud…
So while he lives in this safe haven for psychopaths he occasionally noticed Sarah but never really made any attempt at connecting with her as his mind is elsewhere. So he has no idea that she is low-key obsessed with him.
But he does know that he doesn’t like the way she is treated by her ‘owner’. However, it’s illegal in Hallows Grove to put any type of shame or judgement on a resident.
Things within him change, lines are crossed and shit gets real.
Gah! I wanna jump in this book and hug her!
I wanna tell her she’s so strong and brave and she deserves love!
I wanna save her!
But the other sick and twisted side of my soul loves reading about all the nasty, violent, disgusting shit she goes through…don’t even pretend that you don’t feel the same way! If you’re reading my reviews then you like my kinda stuff, hahaha!
If you’re into the dark but not the pitch-black stuff, this one might be too much for you.
There is a lot of abuse and non-consent scenes, not to mention the gore and violence.
Personally, I love it but you already know my heart is black 🙂
Fink, who is actually her guardian since she was about nine years old, punishes her with rape and abuse and sick experiments when he is unhappy with her and her life is just so filled with pain and sadness.
In the past ten years, he’s taken me apart bit by bit. The first time he cut me was when I was nine. He took off my middle finger and reattached it. I was under anaesthesia for the procedure, but when I awoke, fear consumed me in a way I’d never felt before.
She’s always had a wee thing for Jack but he never even notices her.
When she and Jack finally start talking and fall in love things take a nasty turn and both of their lives are in danger.
FUCKED UP SEX SCENES
Yeah, there really isn’t anything near ‘vanilla’ sex in this book and I gotta tell ye, it was deliciously depraved and well written.
Ogier groans behind me as he pushes my head down, smothering me with her pussy. She apparently likes the sensation because her arousal seeps into my mouth and nostrils as she comes. “That’s a good girl, Sarah. Eat her fucking cunt.” His body heat presses against my rear and thighs before he wipes his cock over my pussy lips and shoves inside of me. I cry against her wetness at the unexpected stretching of my body. It only lasts a few minutes before he tells me, “Sit on her face.” As he pulls out, I adjust myself to straddle over her mouth. He lowers himself between her legs, immediately thrusting into her. I’m surprised at how pleasant her hot breath feels, blowing against my clit as she moans in response to his body moving inside hers. Ogier pulls my hair, bringing me face to face with his assault on her cunt. After pumping inside of her a few times, he pulls out to force himself down my throat. The entire time, her tongue laps at me with expert pressure, and it feels so damn good that I pathetically ride her mouth to reach my climax. I switch between licking at her little pink clit and Ogier’s shaft as he slides in and out of Esty’s body. “Fuck,” he groans. “I’m gonna come soon. Who wants it?” I have the sense that eagerness can be rewarded, and she must’ve arrived at the same conclusion since we both say at the same time, “I do.” He laughs as he pulls out of Esty. “Too bad I can’t keep you both.” Walking over to the closet, he reaches up, though, I can’t tell what it is he retrieves. “Kiss each other.” Esty’s straddles me, her lips immediately finding mine as she lays me back on the bed. I can feel her wet pussy rubbing against my stomach while her tongue tastes my mouth. Ogier groans, “I think I might actually feel a little sorry about this.” He thrusts into her body, making her rock on top on me. Suddenly, her body shoves hard against mine when something hot and wet splashes over my chest. She coughs, splattering the dark liquid across my face. My eyes take a moment to focus, and when I can see clearly, there’s a gaping red cut stretched across Esty’s throat. She gurgles her last breaths while Ogier’s fingers dig into the wound. He moans his pleasure, emptying himself into her dying body as he fingers the gash in her neck. My eyes meet with Esty’s, and I scream at the horror I see in them. I’m sorry, I mouth to her, hoping she knows that I truly am. None of this is fair, for either of us. Hot tears pour from my eyes with the last few gurgling sounds that escape her lips until her lifeless body falls limp and bloody against mine. Slowly sliding out of her corpse, Ogier smiles at me, licking the blood from his fingers. “She was pretty great, wasn’t she?”
Final Thoughts on SKELETON KING by Charity B
This is one sick and beautiful story. A perfect retelling of Jack Skellington and one that shall not be forgotten, I can assure you, lol.
Full of the extreme, quality and taboo shit that I have come to love from Charity B.
Thank you for reading!
