*Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange for the review and I coached Jo through publication*

I freaking loved this book. Genuinely. Because I worked with Jo professionally, I saw an earlier draft of the book and it's come a long way from there. I will preface by saying that I don't think this is Jo's best work yet (greater books are definitely on the horizon as she refines her skills) but this book is still incredibly engaging with an unmissable ending (you definitely don't want t

No spoilers included:

This author has real potential. The beginning of this book was a little rough for me, the dialogue needed some work but as it progressed it seemed the author really gained her footing and her characters really came to life. I really loved the descriptions used and the fact that painful and uncomfortable subjects were not shied away from.

I am excited to see what the author produces next! Totally wort

Very engaging and accessible read. Dana is surprisingly relatable for a teenage girl with supernatural powers. This book tackles some really serious issues head-on and does not shy away from its character’s flaws. Definitely worth a read!

Jo has written a great debut, YA dark fantasy novel. A young woman, Dana, has nightmares about demons chasing her. Desperate for safety (and a good nights sleep), Dana is found by a group of demon hunters. She soon discovers there’s more to her nightmares than meets the eye...

A great debut dark fantasy novel with serious themes. But the writing doesn’t bog you down, if anything it’s short and to the point. I really enjoyed the story and I’m excited to see the direction this series is going!

Intriguing from start to finish! Loved getting to follow Dana on her journey, battling real-life issues, with a supernatural twist. The book is written in such great detail, it almost feels like you're a fly on the wall. The ending left me shook, wanting more! I highly recommend this read. I look forward to more from Jo Narayan! P.s. The book the a nifty guide on pronunciation towards the back of the book! ...more
