Straight-A student from the University of Vermont, Leigh Swanson, knew she should never have gotten in that car.
A raucous, booze-filled weekend in Montreal sounded like a bad idea from that start. But, following the incessant nagging from her roommate, she finally gave in— against her better judgement. However, when a half-baked scheme to smuggle illegal substances across the border takes a turn for the worse, the gang finds themselves lost deep in the woods, terrorized by a contagious deadly fungus and hunted by a family of twisted, interbred cannibals.
And these kids are about to discover that, sometimes, the only thing worse than the sickness itself is The Remedy.
THE REMEDY (April 8, 2015, Full Fathom Five Digital) is a gripping tale of a college vacation gone horrifically wrong. In his debut novel with Full Fathom Five Digital, Asher Ellis displays a disturbing knack for campy fun and backwoods gore. It’s Warm Bodies and The Strain meets Spring Breakers, and definitely not for the faint of heart
REVIEW: THE REMEDY by Asher Ellis THE REMEDY is a debut novel demonstrating a tremendous amount of talent, vivid settings, great understanding of character. For many readers, it will be a one-session read, because you won't be willing to stop until you've reached the stunning conclusion. Well, the entire book is stunning: engrossing, thoughtfully developed, shifting subtly from recreation to danger to bizarre Nature to mystery to suspicion to thriller. Frequently I caught myself thinking, "I couldn't have foreseen that twist!" THE REMEDY is definitely one of my personal Best of 2015.
