What book is this? Im extremely curious. Probably not for my own good…
Which book is this?
The one with the chest crushing and meat hook is Camera Obscura. (It’s kind of part of a big arc though, I believe.)
The one with the corpses in the streets is The Bodysnatchers. (Which is more standalone.) It ALSO has Eight committing accidental genocide. If I remember correctly, their slow deaths are described as putting salt on slugs. It’s super gross.
