About the Author
Jan Hull is a published poet, a veteran of the construction industry, and a music lover who is fascinated with the paranormal.
A fan of apocalyptic fiction, Hull was inspired to write her dynamic first novel, Ceres Exley: The Quarantine, by her desire to write a story that explores the causes behind an apocalypse, rather than simply rehashing the horrors of the event itself. In Ceres Exley, she creates a dystopian future society that is headed for self-annihilation and asks the question, “Can music and love heal us before we get to the edge of the cliff and jump off?”

Ceres Exley is told by, well, Ceres Exley, the main character, a young woman who is musically gifted and somewhat broken hearted. Stranded on Firstkey Island in what they later realize is the apocalypse with her brothers and the work crew of the family business, Ceres finds magic and miracles and…dare I say something else?
I enjoyed the first person present tense of this story, even though it feels like the story is in the past. I wasn’t sure it would work, but it did.
There is a lot to like about Ceres Exley, The Quarantine, but the magic of the island and the characters that comprise the book are at the top of this list. I enjoyed Jan Hull’s writing style. More so, I enjoyed the hope of this book. In our world, where hope isn’t always something we see, reading about it and some of the things that happen to Ceres and her family and friends was refreshing.
