Very thoughtful review of Cannibal Hearts.
Three flying saucers
Cannibal Hearts is the sequel to Catskinner’s Book, which I reviewed last year. Although paranormal/urban fantasy isn’t my favorite sub-genre, I enjoyed Catskinner’s book. To me, the best aspects of the story were a world where it felt like anything could happen, and the dual nature of the main character (not in some boring literary or psychological sense; it’s more like demonic possession).
All of the characters who survived the first book reappear, as do a few of the paranormal elements, such as a dimension-bending garden supply store, heavy metal men, and hermaphrodite love interests. One of the latter appeared in a sex scene which romance readers might find tame, but was the most explicit thing I’ve ever seen in print. So, although I think the main character might resonate with younger readers, I wouldn’t recommend the book to them.
