Effectively Wild by Aeryn Rudel

An aging 37 year old baseball player is painfully at the end of his career. No longer in the big leagues, Martin’s professional level has relegated to the minors. Down on his luck with unpaid bills and alimony, a second chance comes in the form of a young rookie pitcher named Andrei Dinescu. This mysterious ball player seems to exude a beastly talent that will no doubt take the organization to the next level.

Not only does author Aeryn Rudel put forth a monstrous good time with his transformation from baseball to horror, but also succeeds in a well constructed story that will satisfy the readers hunger for something entertainingly different. Blending these two topics with inscribed talismans, wolfsbane and vulgar urges of bloodlust is actually a pleasant result of pure uneasiness.

Armed with curveball carnage and brutal breaking pitches, Rudel sprinkles the perfect amount of that special rosin wit on his unusual element of horror. Effectively Wild has a wonderfully 80’s “Paperbacks From Hell” retro vibe to it. From the gorgeous cover to the “over-the-top” storyline that can’t miss…literally. I can totally see this on a book rack in a drugstore! Grinning Skull Press has once again provided a diversified outlet to the genre we all love and hold dear to our horrific hearts.
Witnessing the radar gun measuring 666 miles per hour is reason enough not to charge the mound but instead grab your copy of this fantastic four-seam fastball of fright. This was such a fun read for me and definitely deserves a five star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Horror Bookworm Recommendation.
