House of Rot: A Review
125 pages, Kindle Edition
Expected publication June 14, 2023
If there's one thing I learned from reading House of Rot, it's that you should really check out the property you're intending to rent or else you might up like Eleyna and Miles. These newlyweds are looking to start their lives together in their new place, but as soon as they move in they realize something is wrong. Mold starts popping up all over the place and soon there's no leaving their very own House of Rot. Sadly, not even their odd neighbor seems to be of much help.
If you enjoy fungal horror then this book is definitely for you. Danger Slater does an excellent job bringing out the yuck factor, and even I cringed in disgust a few times. The story itself is tinged with humor and satire, and overall it was an enjoyable read. I do think it could have been fleshed out more and some of the commercial references did seem to drag on a bit, but that's just my personal preference. The message of the story was quite clear to me, but I'm not sure if it was intended that way or just my interpretation.
