    I can't wait to read more

    Hailey has recurring dreams featuring a purple-eyed Envoy summoning her to her death. Asher is that Envoy, one of many soul gathers accidentally trapped for the last three thousand years between the Aether and Earth. Now in her senior year of high school, Hailey has to deal with the normal pressures of homework, prom, cute boys, and choosing where to go to college. And then her older sister Holly is abducted. What secret is Fin, the cute bartender, hiding? What happens when the handsome purple-eyed man of Hailey's dreams (literally) walks into her family bar? Strange things start happening around her, but when Hailey goes off to university, the weirdness begins in earnest - not least of which is her roommate from Hell (once again, literally). The Envoys come up with a plan to get back home, but who else will have to die in the process? In the end, the real question is: "Is anything more important than love?" From the sublime to the ridiculous, the author's writing is a melange of Lewis Carroll, Roald Dahl, and J. K. Rowling. The quotes at the beginning of each chapter are a nice touch and help set the tone. Hints are woven none too subtly into the text (for example, the strange scholarship offers, her mother's necklace, and the Irish dancing), and you just know these things are going to play a big part in the story. The book features an assortment of memorable characters (such as Fin, Uncle Pix, Mrs Lash, Giselle, and Asher) and delightfully quirky critters (such as tea-drinking bookworms, tunneling earworms, carnivorous trees, and Yetis). Eerie is a brilliant combination of horror, thriller, paranormal, romance, and (surprisingly) humor. I especially love the campus tour and Giselle's descriptions of Hailey's dance moves. I'm just not sure about the book title and the cover, which don't convey the humor and quirkiness inherent in the story. Warning: ends on a cliffhanger, but this time I didn't mind. I can't wait to read more about Hailey and Fin. I received this book in return for an honest review. Full blog post: https://booksdirectonline.blogspot.com/2016/09/eerie-by-c-m-mccoy.html

    Suspenseful, dark, quirky and surprisingly funny

    EERIE by CM McCoy is a young adult fantasy with romance and the first book in a series, which can be read as a stand-alone. When I saw that EERIE had been featured in both PEOPLE magazine and on INSIDE EDITION and I wanted to check it out. he EERIE blurb and reviews promised I’d find a quirky/dark story with unexpected humor and memorable characters and IT DELIVERED. Hailey Hartley suffers a devastating personal loss during her senior year of high school–her big sister is abducted–only to find that the supposedly mythical creatures called Envoys are to blame. Hailey follows an Envoy named Asher to a Paranormal University in Alaska, where Asher promises to protect her from other Envoys who really really want her dead. Things become more and more uncomfortable for Hailey as she struggles to survive her supernatural classes, avoid the campus’s paranormal perils, and get along with her roommate from Hell. When she accidentally ignites Asher’s jealously by spending time with another guy, Fin, things come to a head and Hailey hopes this one creature that can protect her from the other Envoys doesn’t end up killing her himself. The world-building in EERIE and the sheer imagination involved in creating this new mythology are astounding. There are so many new creatures and characters I’ll never forget, like Hailey’s grumpy “loner” roommate, who just wants to be left alone but optimist Hailey can’t take a hint. And the villain, Cobon, who’s so creepy and gentlemanly at the same time and who’s so unapologetically sure of his “got to break a few eggs to make an omelet” attitude. The heroes are beautifully flawed, and I honestly didn’t know who to root for until the very heart-breaking end. This book is a perfectly paced, with great moments of edge-of-your-seat suspense coupled with the slow burn of unrequited love. Even though the book over 400 pages long, I read the whole thing in one night. I only wish it were LONGER so that I didn’t have to wait for the sequel to get more of the story. There is no happily ever after ending in this fairy tale, but the main story line is tied up wonderfully with a teaser chapter at the end to let us know more is coming (and hopefully soon). Fans of Moning’s DARKFEVER will like the adventure and supernatural suspense of EERIE. The romance in EERIE will appeal to fans of TWILIGHT, and fans of HARRY POTTER will love the unique world and new mythology in a remote school setting.
