About the Author

I'd rather read a book than shop, which makes it painful when I have a special occasion. Nothing to wear. I live in the South-only a day's trip from New Orleans.

Life throws enough stuff at teens without adding Lysette's unique problems. There's a mysterious cute guy, secrets she uncovers, some Voodoo powers, and a bad dude who wants.....You didn't think I would tell you, did you? You will enjoy the story, the characters, and the lush southern settings. You don't need to be a teen to read this one.

The author of this book got everything right. From the first page, she lured me into the 5th Realm with strong emotion and conflict, great characterization, and vivid descriptions of a hellish, paranormal world. I loved the New Orleans setting and voodoo elements. They painted the novel with a spooky aura that kept me turning pages. Lisette, the main character is multi-dimensional and very smart. Her fierce protection of those she loves revealed a quiet strength that enabled her to face her fears and enter a domain filled with images from her nightmares. The other main character, Eric, was such a mystery he kept Lisette wondering whether he was friend or foe. I can't wait to read the next book in the series to see where their relationship takes them.

I told my fifteen-year-old niece about The 5th Realm, and after she read it she called me raving about the story. We've spent countless hours discussing the characters, the plot, the romance angle, and just how much we both thoroughly reading this awesome novel.

I've read a fair number of young adult paranormal romances, but not read one quite like this before. The voodoo angle is interesting and original and the New Orleans setting very evocative. Rather an unusual hero. He's a nice twist on the ubiquitous angel heroes I've read so much of recently. When I realised who/what he was, I wondered if the author could pull him off as a hero, but she did a wonderful job of making him sympathetic. Full of action, danger and romance, this is a compelling read. Looking forward to the next in the series!

This book was a little bit slow to start but after a few chapters in it was a very exciting read. Some parts of the book were highly predictable but even so it still kept my attention and once I really got into it I didn't want to put it down until I was finished. The author does a good job of switching between the main characters of Lisette and Eric so you get the full picture of what's going on, rather than being kept in the dark until certain events take place. I also really enjoyed the authors writing style. It was very easy to read and be involved in the story, allowing for easy attachment and empathy for Lisette and Eric. I also really enjoyed that this book was not actually a romance, while it did have romantic elements that is not what the story revolved around, which seems almost rare to find these days.

The book doesn't end on a cliffhanger per say but it's pretty close to one. If the next book in the series was already out, I probably would have been compelled to go buy it and immediately start reading to see how things get wrapped up in the next book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I did have my reservations since I've never read a book centered around voodoo before, but I can safely say even though this book is centered around the idea of voodoo it doesn't get all technical and wordy with it which is nice.
