Let me start this review by saying that Eli Constant is an amazing author. I knew it the moment I started reading her novella DRAG.N, a riveting read. I’ve so been looking forward to reading Mastic even since I found out about its release; there were lots of reasons for it: the title itself made me curious, the covers of Mastic that I saw on facebook (all of them really cool), and the blurb which sounded like I was going to enjoy this book (which I did).

I didn’t expect to be pulled so strongly i

Mastic by Eli Constant is as good a paranormal murder mystery as I have read in a long time. It is the story of a woman who's past has come back to haunt her in very unexpected and dangerous ways. The best part of a past and the worst part collide in a way one never could have expected. As she sets out to protect the best part she discovers along the way parts of her self she has long ignored. Mastic is the story of how far a parent will go to protect a child, the sacrifices we are willing to ma ...more

This is a fast paced and riveting Murder Mystery with a paranormal twist. The story begins with the murder of the celebrity model, Harmony Phelps. The body is found in a small town and detective Mark Faulkner and medical examiner Renee Forst are assigned the case.

Loved loved loved this beautiful story - has everything I enjoy in a book yet very different with its unique style. Each page is to be savoured and trust me when I say I took my time in reading it as I really didn't want my journey to end. I found myself looking for opportunities to devour my mind into Mastic. This seductive, fantasy tale & thriller - with a touch of passion left me feeling inspired & thoroughly entertained. The connection I felt with the characters left a tingle down my ...more

I received this book from the Author and Lovers of Paranormal (LOP) at for an honest review.
It boggles my mind how a book can still surprises me and yes, once again this has happened. The story and plot was one I was not expecting. I was instantly drawn into the world of Kat and Renee, through their vivid dreams at the start to the very end where life comes full circle, death meeting rebirth. I wasn’t too sure where the story was going with the death of Harmony Phelps to the dream

Recommends it for: Pretty much anyone!
Mastic is a daring and sensual read that you will devour in one sitting. It plays with several genres whilst maintaining its paranormal and romantic elements, yet it also oozes an edge of horror and thriller. Eli has been quite clever developing a plot to suit such a wide range of tastes.

The charcters had such believable and honest relationships. It’s impossible NOT to feel something towards them.

That goes for the good AND the bad.

Because there are bad characters, evil ones but with something i

Vivid and unique

Mastic is amazingly descriptive. I could see it, smell it and even taste it. It has a little bit of romance, a nice dash of paranormal, and a sprinkling of fantasy all mixed up with a heaping dose of mystery. Along with a bunch of twists and turns, you aren't really sure where things will end up until the very end.

Pamela Lorence does a wonderful job with the narration of Mastic. You can easily tell who is talking at the time, and she reads clearly with a good pace.

** I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Lovers of Paranormal, LoP **

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story line was quite a ride. This book has adventure, suspense and some paranormal. The plot was easy to follow and at times I wasn't sure how it would end. I liked that. The characters are great. They all added to the overall feel of this story. A good add to your tbr list.

Tears of Chios, sounds made up, but look it up. They are actual fact, and a lot of things that you think may be made up are actual research that Eli Constant has woven into a tangled web of intrigue to create a story like none I have read yet. Ms. Constant has brought not only her characters to life, but she has brought each of her places to life as well. When I can picture each of the settings her characters are walking through, so I can walk through them with her characters, feel with her char ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Lovers of the Paranormal.

I really enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down. It was a wonderful mix of thriller and supernatural. I enjoyed the characters and found it extremely gripping. The only negative point was regarding the inclusion of Chris and Alexander, I think I would have preferred the main characters to discover the plot by themselves, but even that little issue did not spoil this book. It drew me in from the start and I de

I love this book and had it read in a few days, it leaves you wanting to just keep turning the pages to see what’s going to happen next. The back story of Mastic and the legend it’s based on is so intriguing and the writing style keeps propelling you forward. I highly recommend this to anyone in need of a mental escape!

*This Book Was Given To Me By The Author In Exchange For An Honest Review*

Mastic is a very well written mystery novel with an extraordinary paranormal element that I have never read anything like before. The story twists and turns taking what starts as what would appear to be a normal murder mystery and ending up on a fantastical dark journey through magic, power and desire.

A captivating read that will appeal to fans of mystery and the supernatural with a new question forming as answers appear a

Mastic encompasses several genres. While sitting strongly in the realm of dark fantasy, it exudes paranormal and romance. The mood and tone of the novel are cleverly crafted.

The newly designed cover art reflects the romantic element of the novel, while maintaining its mystery.

The characters are three-dimensional, and I immediately cared about them. I loved to love some and loved to hate others. It's so easy to get to know each of the characters, and their relationships with each other are believ
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review LOP.
I gave this book 3 & a half stars because it had some good elements but it fell flat in so many areas for me. Harmony's murder in the beginning and the disappearance of her body was intriguing but when it jumps to the assistant medical examiner's daughter Kat's dreams it didn't tie together. I understood the plot but it seemed to be a jumbled read. Skipping from subject to subject and getting off the plot often. Lots of the
