The Semblant is an erotic sci-fi horror novel by Bob Goodwin. After a decapitated body is found at a popular nightclub in Brisbane, Australia, Detectives Jan Silverton and Clive Anderson are on the case, determined to catch the culprit. Unbeknown to them, however, the killer is one of The Semblant - a race of humanoid creatures with advanced psychic abilities who can take over the form of their victims. Additionally, their Acquired victims display a heightened sense of sexual stimulation. Apart from a solitary mortician named Roderick Peabody, no human is aware of their existence. Meanwhile, a serial killer nicknamed "Daisy" has been going around brutally killing gay men. With two seemingly random cases on their hands, can the detectives solve the murders?
If you're a fan of Hollywood horror movies such as The Thing or erotic thrillers like Basic Instinct, you will enjoy The Semblant. Bob Goodwin merges the genres of sci-fi with erotic horror to create something that feels refreshingly unique. A fast-paced narrative coupled with unpredictable twists and turns in the plot makes this a thoroughly entertaining read from start to finish. The characters are well defined, with easily discernible motives that give authority to their actions. It creates a compelling dynamic during their interactions with each other. Goodwin infuses an intoxicating mix of eroticism and nail-biting horror sequences into the narrative that will have readers hooked, wondering what's going to happen next. Recommended to readers who love X-rated horror stories.
