End of Mae is an intriguingly delightful paranormal novel, with a surreal, creepy edge. It has a fast pace, a breezy tone, plus just the right touch of black humour and dark thrills.

The book tells the tale of Mae, a plucky, small-time reporter out to find her “big story”. What she finds instead is a vicious attacker and a strange world of trouble. One she might not be able to leave behind.

The author has a nice turn of phrase for setting a scene and a deft hand at weaving a character. Her villain

Author interview: http://vilutheril.com/2011/07/05/inte...

The End of Mae is the debut novella by Angela Yuriko Smith, an American born writer currently living in Australia. While Angela has been quite a successful non-fiction writer for years The End of Mae is her first foray into the perilous realm of speculative fiction. The novella spans approximately 66 pages, with a non-fiction section at the end, and provides a legitimately creepy atmosphere, interesting characters, a touch of dark humour,

Mae is searching for a story that will move her from small town journalist to big city reporter. She finds just that when she begins investigating the Jersey Devil disappearances and is, herself, made to disappear.

End of Mae was a quick, easy read with a lot more twists and turns than one would expect from a novel of its size. The author did an awesome job of setting the scene, and was very generous in her use of imagery. I felt as though I were laying on that white marble slab with her, beyond

Angela Smith’s novel, End Of Mae, ends with a nicely researched analysis of the Jersey Devil myth. Perhaps this is the story her protagonist Mae was looking for—it’s not one that I’m familiar with, so I certainly enjoyed learning about it. Mae, however, might not enjoy what’s coming for her as she waits, one dark night, journalistic pen in hand, for that final bit of evidence she hopes will lead to fame and fortune.

Beset by mis-fortunate mis-steps, unsure of what’s real and what’s dreamt, Mae’s

Mae, a naïve and eager writer, hopes to boost her career from small town reporter, by researching the eerie disappearances (believed to be caused by the Jersey Devil Monster) that occurred in the woods of Whitesbog. While investigating the woods at night, she is captured by the mysterious monster, and her life becomes a nightmare. She is taken to a unfamiliar place with strange beings and happenings. (This is where I cringed and winced.) To say she was beaten is to put it lightly. She soon yearn ...more

My Rating: ★★★★☆

Mae is a small-town journalist on the cusp of an exciting story when something suddenly attacks her. She wakes in a dark room and is confronted with what she can only describe as an angel. On the brink of death, Mae is whisked away to a strange mansion full of bizarre people. The most thrilling story might be her very own, and she is dying to tell it.

I’m certainly glad I took

I was given and e-copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

The book is about a journalist named Mae. She hopes to take her career to a higher level by writing a story about the disappearances that are thought to be linked to the Jersey Devil. Little did she know that her research might just land her in a position to be writing the story as a victim. Will this story be the one that makes her career soar, or will it be the end of Mae?

I received this book from the author to give an honest review.

I am going to give this book 4 stars because, well I felt as though it didn't quite flow together and I had a lot of questions that the book did not seem to answer for me. Maybe to others it will so I do suggest you give this book a try and see if you enjoy it. This is a paranormal novella and good for the YA age.

End of Mae starts off to where the main character in the book Mae is a small-town reporter looking for a "big" story to ge

Well let me first same that I loved it. I was captivate by the story from the first page. It kept me wanting to know what was coming next. Never could I guess what was to come. I couldn't put it down and to me that is the true test of a good book. Even when I had to due to the fact I have a 7 year old to take care of I couldn't wait to get back and continue reading it. I had it read in one day.

I would highly recommend this book to any one who likes a roller coaster of a ride while reading, lots

OK at first I was a little worried that I wouldn't like this book but the more I got into it the more I loved it. Mae is a journalist looking for that one BIG story to break her into the big time. In the process of this she starts looking into the Jersey Devil disappearances and she becomes one of those who disappears. She is held by Heylel and meets up with a real witch of a woman named Prym and a Dr. Smeltzer who helps with her injuries. Anyway I think most people who like scarey entity type s ...more
