SIPHON by A.A. Medina

There is an urge inside you...

Dr. Gary Philips is the resident hematopathologist at Claybrook Medical Center. He is quite lonely. He struggles with several things pertaining to his job. He hates his boss, but he is obsessed with his co-worker. Gary also has to deal with his abusive grandfather. 

Nothing seems to be going Gary's way until a workplace mishap changes everything. After the accident, he becomes empowered to pursue his fantasies. 

Siphon is a great, enthralling read! The cover intrigued me, but the story blew me away. The writing is immaculate. There are a couple of scenes that are vivid, but there is one in particular that stands above the rest. The scene is written so well that I can't get the image out of my head–it's that disturbing. Siphon is a book about body horror, but it is so much more than that. The characters feel real. A. A. Medina has a great main character in Gary. He is lacking and vulnerable, which makes the story better. 

Siphon is a swift read that will grip you from the first page. The storyline is seamless. The ending is equal parts brutal and beautiful. A. A. Medina has arrived! 

Highly recommend!

5/5 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
