Cassandra Khaw's Nothing But Blackened Teeth is a gorgeously creepy haunted house tale, steeped in Japanese folklore and full of devastating twists.


A Heian-era mansion stands abandoned, its foundations resting on the bones of a bride and its walls packed with the remains of the girls sacrificed to keep her company.

It’s the perfect venue for a group of thrill-seeking friends, brought back together to celebrate a wedding.

A night of food, drinks, and games quickly spirals into a nightmare as secrets get dragged out and relationships are tested.

But the house has secrets too. Lurking in the shadows is the ghost bride with a black smile and a hungry heart.

And she gets lonely down there in the dirt.

Effortlessly turning the classic haunted house story on its head, Nothing but Blackened Teeth is a sharp and devastating exploration of grief, the parasitic nature of relationships, and the consequences of our actions.

Mid

Anticlimactic ending, book should have been longer, the whole story felt rushed. Reading this book felt like I was watching a recap of a movie or something. It also was not scary and the use of yokai felt completely random with no explanation.

Fantastic, eerie & beautifully written

Stunning prose, so descriptive and creepy. Loved this! I was reading it so tense that when my dog barked I literally shrieked!!!

This book was nonsense and a wasted of time.

Reading this book legit gave me a headache. The whole book is just the MC making analogies about every little things the other character said or did. There’s is almost no mention of the ghosts/antagonist. It’s all just the MC rambling or interacting with the other characters and their personal drama. The book seemed rushed and shouldn’t even be considered a horror book. You can’t tell who’s talking while reading and If you’re not already familiar with Japanese folk lore, you’re gonna be lost. I am and was still going “huh?”. It’s not something I’d pick up again.
