Reviewed by Maria Beltran for Readers' Favorite

A gripping horror fiction novel, Metas by Rae Louise is the story of a woman whose sister died in an unusual gruesome circumstance. Overwhelmed by grief and guilt, Violet Kendal, not your normal working girl, sinks into a mind set that proves to be toxic to her relationship with Dean. After a chance encounter with a strange man, she finds herself deeply involved with a group of mysterious personalities, and she joins their nightmarish world where she will come closer to the truth about her sister's death and her own part in it.

Metas by Rae Louise is an edgy horror story that exposes the primal force that exists inside all of us humans. Fast paced and engaging, the story follows Violet Kendal's quick descent in a self destructive path of violence. Guilt and grief certainly make a very bad combination. It becomes even more dangerous when Violet realizes that she has the tools to exact revenge. Will she sink deeper or can she find a way back to reason and humanity?

Rae Louise's writing style is simple and direct but, at the same time, it does not spell out everything for the reader. As such, one has to read between the lines to find out what is really going on inside the characters' hearts and minds and most of the time, it is not very pleasant. And this is perhaps what makes the novel interesting and unique. As Violet grapples with her heart and mind, one cannot help but empathize with her. Reading this book is highly recommended!
