A young yeti, out scavenging with his parents, wanders off and discovers a lone cabin in the woods. A beautiful woman inside awakens his pubescent desires as he finds love for the first time. The young yeti visits the woman on multiple occasions, conjuring lustful desires within.
When the young yeti’s father realizes his son has been visiting the woman, he chooses to put a stop to it once and for all. However, the young yeti is not willing to let his father stand in the way of true love.
The intimate tale explores the boundaries of forbidden love and the horror that lurks within.
"Yeti Yearning" by Essel Pratt is a very, very special book. I don't even dare to review it as any other regular title.
What can you expect when you have this book in your hands? We are not used to the concept of "yeti", and belonging to Project 26 (which is an amazing terror book collection project from J. Ellington Ashton Press), you ask yourself "what is this?".
I need to start from the point that Pratt's writing is very pleasurable to read, which makes his books sincerely gratifying to hold. He brings a sugary tone to threads, in a way that he exposes a bloody scene giving you the sensation of watching ballet.
That said, we can observe in the blurb that the main story consists of a romance, but he goes far beyond that. I won't ruin the story, so I won't talk about the plot. This book gets you underneath the Yeti's fur and his devastating emotions, from arousing to fury, going through sharp abandon and confusion when he discovers our lovely, transgressive girl.
Personally, in Pratt's work, I found a sweet story, a very unconventional, divergent sweet story, out of many reader's safe-zone, which gives us that very needed splash of blood and dark eroticism we're expecting. He does.
You don't need to be an erotica fan to like this book, nor a myths hunter or a bloody reader. You only need to feel like enjoying a good afternoon with w hat is a very good book, that will take you through controversial, suspicious, violent, provoking paths and, want it or not, you will close it with a grin crossing your face.
You didn't expect what the author just provoked in you, but there you are, you and your unpredictable book and a story you will never forget. I'm pretty sure, when Pratt finished the last line, held back the impulse of writing a final "You're welcome."
