From Jeremy C. Shipp comes a tense dark fantasy novel of psychological horror in Bedfellow. It broke into their home and set up residence in their minds. When the... thing first insinuated itself into the Lund family household, they were bemused. Vaguely human-shaped, its constantly-changing cravings seemed disturbing, at first, but time and pressure have a way of normalizing the extreme. Wasn't it always part of their lives? As the family make more and greater sacrifices in service to the beast, the thrall that binds them begins to break down. Choices must be made. Prices must be paid. And the Lunds must pit their wits against a creature determined to never let them go. It's psychological warfare. Sanity is optional.

Very unsettling and disturbing. As the story was slowly unraveling I felt like I was in a bizarre fever dream.. very odd but I did enjoy it.

I was really enthralled by this book in the beginning, the cover hails it as a renaissance of horror, but the more I read the more I found myself wondering when it was going to get scary. The main villain is a sleazy uncle type which doesn't really shiver my timbers and the twists are less scary and more ridiculous and bemusing. I really wouldn't call this a horror and that's why it was disappointing for me. It's a nice little short read, but ultimately unsatisfying.
