Book Description

A demon haunts artist Kip Livingston in her cottage by the sea. The demon is a firehawk, a dark invader who lives inside her dreams. But the firehawk does not dissolve when Kips wakes up. Supernatural powers drive the firehawk into Kip's waking life. Even Kip's Jungian therapist, Dr. Laz Merlyn, cannot resolve Kip's dilemma. When Kip turns to Raymond Kera, an exiled priest, she captures him with her beauty and charm. Raymond soon discovers that Kip's night sea journeys are a descent into a land beyond consciousness. He is compelled to enter her ghostly world. Can Raymond rescue Kip from this demon? Or will Kip pay the ultimate price? Together, Kip and Raymond enter into what Carl Jung calls descensus ad inferos-a descent into Hades.

From the award-winning author of The Dazzling Darkness, this supernatural thriller is a fast-paced read with angels and demons, psychological twists, romance, and murder.

San Francisco Book Review

Night Sea Journey is like reading a Dan Brown book with a wicked twist: it has real demons. Readers will be taken on a continual thrill ride. Excellent and impossible to put down. A fast-paced thriller where reality is blurred and faith is tested, guaranteeing to keep you enthralled until the very last word.

"Definitely a page turner where I did not want to put the book down. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a great read, great writer, awesome detailed characters, demons, angels." HellHorror.com *****

"A suspenseful, romantic, mystical tale ... Cappa's superior writing skills, her ability to write this particular story to be so profound and thorough was perhaps one of the most impressive thing about the book." HorrorPalace.com ****

"Beautifully told. Cappa is a skilled writer producing beautiful prose with amazing imagery." Horror-Web.com

"Quite an enchanting tale, weaving together ancient Biblical supernaturalism and dream theory, told in dreamy colorful language, with deft characterizations. Highly recommended." Monster Librarian

"Paula Cappa's novel Night Sea Journey is a powerful page-turner - enigmatic, surprising, and completely engaging ... a wild ride over dangerous and previously uncharted terrain." JAMES HULBERT, author of A Kiss Before You Leave Me

"Night Sea Journey" is a startling story that captures the reader from the first page, strong character development and a robust vocabulary. Cappa's characters are the kind the reader remembers long after the story has been read. Her dialogue flawlessly carries the story from one stage to the next." JUDITH REVEAL, author of The Brownstone

"Night Sea Journey is one of the most interesting novels I've come across in a good long time! The writing is good, the story is truly engaging, the characters are memorable, and as far as this editor is concerned, the philosophical base is right on!"

American author Paula Cappa deals with words. She has experience as a journalist for newspapers in New York and Connecticut, a freelance copywriter, editing health, business communications, magazines and news articles, newsletters and advertising copy, but her true love is writing both short stories and novels - that destination for words that satisfies her most. This book, NIGHT SEA JOURNEY was her debut novel and she has continued writing others since the publication of this book in 2012. From reading this isolated example of her talent it seems she has a secure future in her chose field of paranormal supernatural fantasy.

Cappa has that special gift of being able to make the supernatural natural, so polished is her prose and ability to string together ideas and development of same in a sustaining suspenseful manner. Even as she describes supernatural imagery her descriptive sense makes the quasi-visible visible. And that is a talent that will draw even those who are not keen on supernatural stories into her fold. In the instance of this story she places a gifted painter (Kip Livingston by name, and a image creator by trade) in an isolated house (Abasteron House) on Horn Island off Rhode Island. We are lead to believe she lives alone until Cappa informs us of other occupants: `Many know Duma as the angel-prince of dreams, blessed with spiky blond hair and shocking green eyes. The perfection of the universe requires these messengers who, on occasion, assume physical bodies or borrow them from nature.' And there is the ominous firehawk. So even in her prologue she places the supernatural... Nightly Kip is visited by a dark nocturnal creature (the FireHawk) who transports her to terrifying places (the night sea journey of the title).

5.0 out of 5 stars Unconventional, Delightful And Complex May 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Paula Cappa has sailed into uncharted waters. Dreams, in many cultures are said to be omens or the visions of the souls desires. Dreams are the playground of the subconscious and susceptible to the influence of the supernatural. The subconscious is the true self Kip finds herself confronting desires, passions and fears that her waking self rarely if ever acknowledges. This is fine as long as the dreams stay dreamland, this story explores the "what if" of that dreamscape overlapping into day to day reality.

A great read, a frightening thought, a book you cannot pass up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo, NIGHT SEA JOURNEY May 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a well written story by an author with skill. I gave the story five stars because of power of story. Although the beginning chapter starts off like observing someone in a restaurant engaged in an argument you don’t know. It is a bit of a put off-- but after the first chapter the story gained speed. And the way the narration jumps around, shifting from one view point and back again tips us off that NIGHT SEA JOURNEY is a Modernistic work. The story is a bit fragmented and linear. Although, I love cliff hangers the author seemed to leave the reader in a ditch with some chapters. It was like wondering what would happen after Snow White took a bite of the apple. Although these minor stumbling blocks didn’t take me out of the story. If foreboding subtext, and modernistic writing floats your boat then by all means the story is quite good and worthy of five stars. BRAVO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing - has that something special in it May 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read many supernatural books, and this one does have that something special in it for me. The plot is well developed and parts of it made me want to scream not because it was frightening, but because it was pleasantly exciting yet eerie. The characters from Father Raymond to Kip are well described and grow on you - and the interaction between them works very well.
It's one of those stories where you suspect there are deeper secrets to be revealed and the author does a great job of keeping you intrigued throughout. So on the whole, this book did it for me, finding it very enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read For Fans Of The Supernatural May 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Night Sea Journey is unlike any book I have read before. I have read many books to do with the supernatural and the challenge it presents, but this book is far from straightforward.
The story opens with one of the main characters, a young artist called Kip, asleep in her home Abasteron House, where her dream appears to become a reality.
The story then introduces the other main character, Father Raymond Kera who is confiding in his friend Garcia (the prophet), also a priest, that he is doubting his faith. The two men talk in depth and Garcia tells Raymond about an experience he had concerning a person called Yeshua. His experience bears similarities to Kips dream in that it involved the sea and appeared to be a reality when he woke as he was covered in sand and seawater.
Raymond is sent by Rome to work on Horn Island where he encounters Kip who lives nearby and he becomes involved in her life. Kip is tormented by demons, especially the firehawk, a massive faceless birdlike creature with twelve wings.
Although this book is not exactly scary, it is full of suspense and you have to keep reading to discover the outcome. The author is very descriptive with wonderfully written illustrations of the scenery, the sea, and of course the demons .
This is a must read for any fans of the supernatural.
