CHILDREN OF NO ONE by Nicole Cushing_Review

Review of Children of No One by Nicole Cushing

5 stars

I found this an incredible story. The degree of character revelations and character evolution the author manages in a story of brevity (novella length) rather than in an extended novel, is amazing. So is the character evolution; and make no mistake, character evolution definitely occurs! Although the outworking of the plot and the premise itself are pretty horrifying (think Grand Guignol in Midwest America) and probably NOT for the faint of stomach, what the author does with it goes beyond skilled and into superb.

Performance art mutates into live torture porn into ceremonial magick of nihilism. An incredibly imaginative and excellently penned tale. I shan’t be forgetting this one.
