A Chilling Nightmare

The description of this story had me hooked from the start. I truly enjoyed this writer's ability to leave us on the edge of our seats as he ended each chapter. I instantly wanted to flip to the next chapter to keep reading. Bravo!
There were some issues, but they were minor and easy to overlook because the story as a whole was very captivating. There were some gruesome and super scary horror moments, but they were woven into a storyline that was constructed very well, so they didn't seem too over-the-top, but it's a horror story, so there's plenty of gore for those of you that like that!
It was a truly chilling tale of nightmares and the things that haunt these characters.
Highly recommended reading for those of you that love a good horror story.

And Levi is a cool dude. Probably one of my favorite supporting characters yet!

BRILLIANTLY CREEPY!

This is a MUST READ!
Holy cow! I was hooked from the second I read the blurb. I read the entire story in one sitting! I just couldn't stop! It was fantastically creepy and felt so real. Your research was PHENOMENAL! Kerri was such a well-developed character that I had absolutely no problem believing that she's the anthropologist she claims to be! The premise was absolutely amazing and it worked so incredibly perfectly in the telling of this tale. I can't even express how blown away I am by this story. BRAVO!

It has potential!

This story has a lot of potential. The bones are there. It has the potential to be a fun story about a witch on her journey who meets all kinds of obstacles along the way; however, there were so many juicy bits that seemed to be missed opportunities to really enhance this story. The writing style fell a bit flat for me. It had moments where I was really drawn into the story, so the potential is there! I am hopeful that the notes I have given on each chapter will be considered. And I look forward to reading more. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. There’s something here. It has a ton of potential!

Such a good story of love and tragedy and hope and despair

Flora Nocturna is truly gifted at building an entire world that her readers can feel fully emersed in. She describes each scene with just the right amount of detail. Trust me when I say that you're not left wanting. Her main characters are relatable and real even though they're fantastical beings. The secondary characters give this story just the right amount of humor and gravity to truly round out an incredible story. I enjoyed this book immensely from start to finish. I wholeheartedly look forward to reading more from this fantastic writer!

Good story!

I'm a sucker for a good zombie story. I really enjoyed the story itself, but it was a bit hard for me to get past the grammatical issues. A cleanly written book makes for much easier reading. I'd be happy to provide more detailed feedback and pointers if you're interested. For example, any time you're using dialogue, every person gets their own paragraph and every speech should end with a comma inside the quotation marks: "There's a zombie over there," he said. Keep up the great work! Can't wait to read more of this story!
