Don’t eat the honey…
This story reminded me of a cross between the Lottery and a Twilight Zone episode. Rajotte excels at drawing in the reader, giving us a false sense of security, while at the same time clueing us in that all is not as it seems. There’s something very wrong with this picture. I thoroughly enjoyed this well-written tale, but now I may have to forego honey with my peanut butter for a few months…

Gates are to keep people in…

There are many ways to pray for a bountiful season, many sacrifices one can make, as the newest family in the community is about to learn. This is a quick and fun read, that will solidify your distaste in Home Owner Associations. Mary Rajotte is a solid story teller with a fluid and capturing writing style.

Atmospheric short tale buzzing with tension from the beginning. Enter the twisted hive of Apiary Estates Social League’s Honey Ball, where dark ancestral secrets are sickly sweet.

You’ll never look at the world the same…

Ever wonder what the 1% do when the cameras aren’t on them? Extravagant weddings and vacations fill our television in myriad forms: Reality TV, the local news, documentaries, etc… Hell, I live a half-hour away from a neighborhood that Tiger Woods and Shaq call home.

Rajotte takes us to a simple meeting of the richest of the rich—without the cameras, when no one but them are around. We easily slide into the protagonist and this opulent world because he’s not one of them; he’s just like you and I.

Sublime in its approach—reminiscent of the early works of J.G. Ballard—Like Flies To Honey evokes every emotion that makes horror what it is today. And just when you think the author won’t go there… Rajotte eviscerates the 1% and exposes a side far darker than our imaginations dare to venture.

Given the controversies of various affluent communities, the seeds that this short, horrific story sews will blossom in your frontal lobe the instant there’s BREAKING NEWS! regarding the 1%. Or when you happen to drive by one of their communities. You’ll never look at them the same again. Ever. It’s one of the highest compliments I can ever give. Five out of five stars!
