ARC Review: Stalk Her by Ker Dukey

Title: Stalk Her
Author: Ker Dukey
Genre: Dark Suspense
Type: Standalone Novella from Dark Delights collection
POV: First Person – Dual
Expected Publication: February 22, 2019

 

Ever get that feeling you’re being watched?
You probably are.

Her sad eyes.
Her thick lips.
Her long dark hair.
Her quickening of breath.
Her hurried footsteps.
Her undiluted fear.

The anxiety a woman has when she knows she’s being followed does something to the sadistic animal inside me.

We all have issues, mine just run a little deeper than most.

My sister and I had our childhood tarnished by an abusive parent. We grew up two very different breeds of our mothers’ creation.

When I discover the beautiful, yet broken, Alice Young. She’s seeking advice, a place to unburden her thoughts.

What she gets is a dangerous, callous predator who wants to quench his thirst with her tears.

My precious, Alice, feels so alone, but she’s not alone. I’m watching her.

Erik Ross feeds on the fear of others.

Alice Young may prove to be too damaged, for even his appetite.

 

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Erik Ross reveled in the drumming heart and the pulsing veins of his targets whose fears fed his insatiable hunger. When he saw an opportunity for a new target, he used her sadness and vulnerability as bait. But Alice Young might turn out to be a more difficult job than he anticipated.

Her patchy, red, swollen face is covered in dried tears, and I take everything from her in this moment.

This book is short and an instant gratification for dark souls. Suffice to say it pleased my constant need for darkness. I liked how both the beginning and the ending were impactful.

She’s lonely, like me. She needs me. Like I need her.

Both characters were intriguing and drew me to their stories. I liked seeing how far they would go to get what they desperately needed. I just love characters who chose to live unapologetically.

Stalk Her is a story of taking control. It would appeal to readers looking for a quick dark read.

Final Verdict:

This review is also available on Goodreads.
