“I believe pain lingers,” Angel said. “Do I believe in spirits? In the supernatural? Probably not.”
The Lonely Motel holds many dark secrets… and Room 6 just might possess the worst of them all.
Angel knows all about pain. His mother died in this room. He’s researched its history. Today he’s come back to end it, no matter the cost, once and for all.
Shyla, a plus-sized prostitute, thinks the stories Angel tells her can’t be true. Secrets so vile, you won’t want to let them inside you.
But the Lonely Motel doesn’t forget. It doesn’t forgive. And it always claims its victim.
In Woom, we follow Angel as he tells Shyla, the prostitute Angel has hired, the different horrific stories that happened in the very room they are in — Room 6 of the Lonely Motel.
There is no introduction or preparing the readers of what they are diving in to as the story opens almost immediately in a very graphic scene. I honestly don’t know what to think of this book and what to say, only that it’s absolutely messed up. It’s psychotic, cringe-worthy, disturbing, and hilarious all at the same time. If I were Shyla, I wouldn’t believe these stories to be true either.
The book was capped off with an even crazier ending. I get that this isn’t a book for everyone, but despite the crazies, I enjoyed reading Woom.
