Plebs by Jim Goforth [ 3.5 stars ]



From the description:

Corey Somerset, Tim Hayworth and Lee Hunter have had one hell of a good night.

And it isn't over yet.

Celebrating their friend's birthday with drunken debauchery and intoxicated antics they've just stumbled through a mini-wave of mindless vandalism and though they've wandered far out of the realms of civilization they are keen to keep the party vibe going.

When they encounter a band of mysterious fugitive women who call a bizarre encampment deep in the woods their residence it appears a strong likelihood that continuing the party is on the cards.


But it won't come without a price.


The collective of unnerving lawless women are open to the suggestion but not without the threesome completing a request first, a seemingly straight forward barter proposition that will bring the boys face to face with something else that dwells in an unorthodox co-existence with the girls in the wilderness.


These are the Plebs and the shocking violent encounter the trio are unwittingly pitched into with these freakish feral fiends may be their first but it won't be the last.

As the shiftless young men become inextricably entwined and involved with the agenda driven dangerous women so too do their fates, with them unraveling killer secrets, duplicity, bloodshed and brutality along the way that encompasses not just them but more of their friends, new enemies and old enemies.


A simple night of bad decisions escalates and snowballs into an expedition of terror spanning all the way home and beyond with Corey and his friends engulfed in a nightmare where the lines between man and monster blur.

Depravity, death and destruction reign supreme and it isn't just the Plebs that want them all torn limb from limb.

If you grew up in the 70's or 80's chances are you spent Friday or Saturday night watching the late night horror movies. Those movies were a little cheesy and a lot of fun. Filled with blood and gore and over the top characters Plebs fits right in. Although a little wordy at times, this is a fun story. So grab some popcorn, or your favorite late night snack and dive in. A fun 3.5 star read.
