Editorial Reviews

Exciting Writing - Will Entrekin
There’s an inherent dread that builds through the novel, and it’s punctuated here and there by scenes of extreme violence verging on gore. It never grossed me out, even when describing the carving of human flesh, but then again I might just have a stronger tolerance for that sort of thing, growing up, as I did, reading Stephen King and Dean Koontz and so many others.
The Creative Penn - Joanna Penn
I don’t read much horror but I was fixated on this book. It’s also well written and edited so a truly professional job.
Attore e Scrittore - Mauro Corso
{Translated from Italian} I would like to add that this novel is not about violence or its glorification: it is a story about human beings and their relationships with each other.

    Was unable to read FULL sentences in this book

    I was really disappointed with the formatting this book was in. I tried playing with text, format etc and i could NOT get it fixed. Alot of the sentences ran off the page so I couldn't read it, i was very enthralled with the book and it COULD'VE been a really good one if i was able to read it all. I stopped after so many pages and since Nook books are NOT refundable it was pretty much a wasted purchase. If anyone has had the same problem or know how to fix please let me know as i would like to continue reading it!

    5 STARS AMAZING!

    I absolutely LOVE Inside the Outside by Martin Lastrapes. I strongly recommend everybody read this book. What first drew me in was the cover: A shaved person with missing limbs, holding a cleaver...looked alien. Then, I read the blurb mentioning CANNIBALS and I was SOLD! After reading the first few pages, I already knew I'd be HOOKED. Timber has my heart. Even though she's a cannibal, you feel her and you love her. She was born into the Divinity (cult) and so it's not a big deal to her that she eats human flesh, which is called a "Sustenance Sacrifice". These sacrifices just sometimes happen to be the people that displease Daddy Marlow, the leader of the Divinity. Children belong to everyone. Divinity members grow up not knowing who their true mother, father, brother, or sister really are. *Brother and Sister? No one knows* Daddy Marlow is father to all. Members of the Divinity also shave all their body hair because hair is evil. Only Daddy Marlow has hair because he shoulders all of that burden. No one is allowed inside the compound without Daddy Marlow giving his permission. No one is allowed to leave without his permission. Everywhere else is referred to as the "Outside". We follow Timber as she lives her daily life in this cult and we fall in love with her immediately. I love everything about Timber...even her dark seed that sprouts every now and then. Whoever she takes her anger out on deserves it. As the story goes on, we delve deeper and deeper... YOU MUST READ THIS! Happy, Sad, Intense, Creepy...YES, YES, YES!

    A most unusual heroine

    From a strange cannibal cult, the heroine of this book enters into mainstream society. I really enjoyed this book, but I have one large problem. The formatting is not working on my old Nook. The pages run off and no matter how small I make the text, it will not show all of it. Very annoying. I'm sure on a newer Nook or tablet it would read fine.

    Mark my words, this book will become a cult classic. Think Dexte

    Mark my words, this book will become a cult classic. Think Dexter meets Warren Jeffs. Self-published author Martin Lastrapes recounts the life of a young girl in a cannibalistic cult and her sudden immersion to the rest of society. It really is a story of family. Though Lastrapes does not dwell on the horrific scenes, there is no lack of detail in the rituals of the cult. Know that female exploitation is a huge part of this book. It's a fast read, you won't want to put it down.

    Unbelievably Creepy!

    This book affected me more than any horror movie ever has. That may be because my imagination is 1,000 times more vivid than any movie director's best creation, but it's definitely due to the fact that this story is incredible. It's so sad and moving and detestable all at the same time. Martin Lastrapes has an amazing ability to draw his readers in to this grotesque and bizarre world that they would normally stay far away from. I would recommend this book to everyone who is a lover of horror stories and anyone interested in a talented representation of the trials of the human spirit with a dark twist.
