Overview

"This is a serial cannibalistic killer’s wet dream come true. The author Wrath James White had written something beyond dark, beyond morbid.” - John Rizo, HorrorNews.Net

"The Resurrectionist by Wrath James White the kind of novel that can unsettle even the most hardened gore fanatic. White writes the kind of horror that gets under your skin, and reading his brand of hardcore fiction may have the unintended side effect of making you feel...wrong. Seriously wrong." - I.E. Lester, Dark Scribe Magazine

Fifteen years ago Joseph Miles was abducted, tortured and almost killed by a serial killer with the taste for blood, but Joseph got away. He is the only survivor. Now Joseph has a problem - he is convinced that his torturer passed a virus on to him. A sickness that will turn him into a serial killer. Joseph must find a cure before the woman he loves - the woman who is currently chained to his bed - becomes his next victim.

Oh this is an ooey gooey and completely unsavory gore fest that barely takes a break. I think they idea was to take people's breath away and their appetite apparently went with it, I think I would have like it little more if the blatant cannibalism didn't take the front row seat, the things that happen in this book smack the reader in the face and make for a heavy and intense read. It was sometimes hard to read but my curiosity prevailed and I finally got to the end, which I must say was interesting but the very bumpy ride made me feel exhausted by the time it was over. Young Joseph Miles gets abducted by an older boy and tortured in his basement for three days. Somehow the kidnapper releases the scarred child, unleashing the beginning of the end. Nothing is ever the same as Joe grows up to be deeply obsessed with serial killers and grows frustrated as his own unhealthy habits of destructive obsessions building up. When he can no longer keep the blood hungry beast tamed inside he unleashes his hunger and lust for flesh, blood and sex. People get in his way and feelings of love and confusion and inability to fight back keep them from reaching safety, and once the predator starts to feed he isn't so sure that he wants to be stopped. Joseph begins to feel certain that the only way to cure his contracted serial killer disease is to kill the root of his problems, only he doesn't know that the original captor somehow feels a connection to him and is hungrily awaiting his arrival. With plenty of sick and twisted scenarios and a really heavy and over the top sex filled pages that take over the tale this isn't for everyone. In fact if Jack Ketchum and Edward Lee had a child, it would somehow write like White, and those men have some imagination. This had substance but it was scary substance and the book had so many disgusting and unmentionable things happen that half the time I felt a little detached from the story, fearing that if I thought of it too much it would drive me bonkers. So read it but proceed with caution, its one heck of a story. - Kasia S.

If you want to be grossed out A LOT while you're reading a book, then this is the one for you! I love blood and gore and have read a lot of so-called "horror" books, but I have to say that I haven't read one that made me cringe as much as this one did in a long time. Good book that makes you think twice about who you invite into your bed...
Like a splatter movie in print. Grossed me out (and that's not easy to do).

If the author deleted 3/4ths of the sex scene and concentrated on telling the story, this would of been an good read. The author writes a interesting novel about a virus that makes one a serial killer. it is really a good novel marred by his use of sex.

The story to this novel was not really too exciting. There was a lot of gross material used, so I was impressed that it made me cringe a couple times. Not a great horror novel, but worth a read.
