Evil Sushi (Evil Sushi Series Book 1) by C.A. King – Review by Francis O’Sullivan
Evil Sushi by C.A. King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
C. A. King’s Evil Sushi does what it says on the tin. There’s sushi. It’s evil. I would probably not recommend eating sushi while you read this book. Unless it’s vegetarian sushi – you’re probably safe there.
It’s 2021, so if you’re avoiding pandemic-related horror this is not the story for you. But if you enjoy speculating about how much worse things could’ve been, knowing easily something dangerous could spread and how hard it would be for authorities to stop it in its tracks, this makes for an entertaining read.
There are some great characters, as I’ve come to expect from King’s books. The story centres around two fishermen – Rod and Ned. Both very down-to-earth, practical men, they are both motivated by their love for Ned’s daughter Sally, who Ned hopes his younger friend will one day pluck up the courage to confess his feelings to. They struggle to make a living in a poorly regulated world where big corporations can easily take what they want, leaving little for anyone else.
This is a really entertaining book which left me wanting more (and, fortunately, the sequel is already out!). It gets five stars from me! I would recommend it to fans of quirky horror – if the evil bunny rabbit in Holy Grail is your idea of peak humour you’ll love this!
