    4 1 2 StarsI fell into this dark character study from the very start and never fell out of it which is a bit of a rarity for me.Without Condition takes its time building the story and focuses on the coming of age of a lonely little girl named Cara who lives on an isolated former pumpkin farm with only her mother and a farm hand for company Cara looks forward to school and meeting kids her age but a bad encounter in kindergarten sets the tone for the rest of her school years She s bullied and whispered about and as a result she withdraws and doesn t bother making friends with the girls It s easier with the boys anyway because they don t whisper about her But as she grows older she realizes they do something even worse They talk and they embellish and her reputation gets trashed by everyone Those ugly voices Cara hears whispering in her head get louder and louder until she finds an outlet to quiet them I LOVED the first half of this story It s a slow build but it is such an interesting tale I was 100% invested in Cara as a character She is most definitely off but it s an understandable type of off because we get to know Cara intimately She is prickly and she is intense but I never disliked her It s dark as hell and it doesn t shy away from any of the viciousness dwelling within people and Cara most especially Would she have turned out the way...

    3.5 4 stars I read Without Condition as part of a group read with a few of the other members of the Ladies of Horror Fiction team We had some amazing conversations regarding some of the life issues brought up in this novel, and maybe just maybe some entertaining discussion covering body disposal techniques It got dark, people The first chapter of this book hooked me in quickly Cara put me in mind of a female vigilante serial killer and I loooove books on this topic In fact, the first 1 3 of the novel and the last few chapters had me struggling to STOP reading in order to not get ahead of the other members of the group read Taylor has serious writing chops and her characters are so true to life and engaging this is a huge selling point for me.The middle third of the book lost me a bit I think, while this book definitely includes h...

    Edited as review is now live on Kendall Reviews Well, I wasn t expecting this.When I was approached to see if I was interested in taking this on to review, I wasn t familiar with the author or her writing style at all I saw the synopsis and replied what genre would this be classified as The author kindly replied and I can t find the email so this isn t a direct quote horror romance In the recent past this would have been easily a hard no for me I m really open to checking anything out, but I ve never been able to stomach romance literature I ve tried a few times My mom and aunt read a ton of romance, and when I was growing up I devoured anything I could get my hands on to read, which meant I checked out a number of the romance books that were sitting around the house I just never could find joy in reading it If you do as a reader, that s fantastic Always, always read what you love and enjoy But romance has always been a big no for me.But sometimes you need to put aside preconceived notions or expectations and take a dive into the deep pool Hey, I did it last year with a book of poetry and I ended up writing a short book of poetry I can pretty much guarantee I won t be writing a romance novel, but what I can confirm 100%, is that this book will make me work harder at developing relationships between characters in my own releases.So, what s this book all about To let you get beyond the confines of co...

    I m continuing my Women in Horror Month reviews with Without Condition by Sonora Taylor.This is a tough review for me only because I was the wrong audience for this one.The character development in Without Condition was great I read this as a group read with several of the Ladies of Horror Fiction team, and we had some really great discussions after reading about the main character s childhood and experiences with bullying.Without Condition was also well written and a quick read.The only reason this wasn t a huge hit with me was it was less horror ...

    Nothing disrupted a whisper faster than a slit throat 3.5 Without Condition begins with a solid opening chapter, and I was really excited since there are not a ton of female slasher books, especially ones written by women However, while this book had horror aspects at the beginning and end, it was really of a dark romance everywhere else This isn t a bad thing, but I sometimes have a difficult time staying focused on romantic stories I think it s going to be perfect for the reader who enjoys a dark love story with horror elements Please take my review with a grain of salt this isn t the type of book I usually seek out, but Sonora writes so well kept me interested in the characters I was just hoping for a lot horror, and I wish it would have been woven throughout the story instead of mainly kept at the beginning and end Most of the beginning of the book is focused on Cara s back story, and I found her to be a relatable character There s a lot of information about why she is the way that she is, and the coming of age portion of Without Conditi...

    Without Condition by Sonora Taylor takes a look into the disturbed, twisted mind of a serial killer And a female serial killer nonetheless The reader gets a detailed understanding about why the protagonist has become what she has become, and what challenges come with the way she deals with her demons This is not a horror story, but a somber and sobering look at how bullying and abuse can shape a destiny and the deadly consequences of unconditional love.Cara Vineyard lives on a pumpkin farm with her mother in rural North Carolina She works for a new brewing company as a truck driver Cara s quiet, boring life is brightened when she meets Jackson Price, a pharmacist in Raleigh As they spend and time together, Cara realizes she is falling in love with Jackson which in turn makes her life complicated When Cara goes out on her late night drives for the brewery, she often picks up men And those men tend to die When she comes home every night from one of these drives, she gives her Mother a memento from her latest victim, which her Mother proudly displays on a...

    I wrote previously that Cara could be a cousin of Aileen Wuornos The book begins when she is a child and follows her into adulthood, but Cara isn t like other girls or women She is slightly anit social with a taste for murder I enjoyed this book because Sonora gives us a fresh female character with her sexual freedom and not conforming to make oth...

    This book was a blast It went from 0 60 in no time at all, and had me riveted Cara is such a great character she s not like the usual serial killer horror trope where the killer just kills and kills with nothing else going on Cara is not a Jason or Michael Myers She carries a lot of hurt and sorrow inside, and just needs to let it out the only way she knows how.But then she meets Jackson, and things change a bit for her Instead of wanting to kill him, she wants to be with him She is shocked by this, but goes along with it and they fall in love Both of them have deep secrets, though We know hers, but what is his I loved how the author tied everything together and showed how Cara and Jackson work out their differences I would have to say that Cara s mom is actually the crazy o...

    Just finished my last round of revisions, and now it s off to my beta readers I m still kind of processing that, on my end at least, the book is done.

    4.5 5I am always a fan of authors who know the value of unrushed yet well paced character development, and from page one, Sonora Taylor delivers Her smooth interweaving of the present and the past also simultaneously develops a plot that is creative and disturbingly unique When Horror slips into Dark Romance, the seemingly off kilter transition first bumps, then works how else might Cara capture the quiet of normalcy without this shift There was one spot where I felt the timing opportunity was a bit of a convenient stretc...
