EERIE ROCKS!

Book 2 promises to just as good 8D with several new surprises ;)

Good Points
I absolute LOVED the book and couldn't put it down, It starts out rather sweet with Hailey and her big sister Holly helping out and step dancing at their Uncle Pix's Irish pub. Hailey has typical school issues related to a family tragedy with secrets;) Then Holly disappears & is found "shredded" , The book takes a decidedly darker turn with Hailey deciding to go to Bear Towne University, the premier school of ParaScience. The book reads like a young adult Harry Potter but better (IMHO). The secondary characters are AWESOME. A poltergeist that does hair and a Banshee with issues . The characters are complex & you never know who to root for. I couldn't decide who to root for Asher, an Envoy with heart or Fin who just can't make his mind up. I can't wait for book 2 which promises more

Eerie is a DEFINITE must-read!!!

This book captured me from the very start! I fell in love with all of the characters...I fell in love with the story plot...i fell in love with EVERYTHING about Eerie!! And I absolutely love how you really get a feel for what these characters are going through during the story!

It was simply FANTASTIC! I was totally engaged throughout the entire book!! I never wanted it to end!! ?

Mind blowing paranormal read!

Love paranormal reads? How about ones that will keep you awake and at the edge of your seat?

This book is all of that and more.

Being swept inside the mind of a literary character is a great feeling. Keeping the reader inside is an even bigger accomplishment.

Hailey is an amazing and typical teenager. Her parents died in a fire when she was very young and she now lives with her uncle and older sister, Holly.

When Holly is kidnapped and determined dead, Hailey begins to seriously question her life and all those around her.

Going to college in Alaska, studying paranormal science, Hailey learns there is way more going on than what she has been dreaming for years.

There is a good guy, bad guy and emotions everywhere!!!!! Seriously, that's what keeps you reading, the constant fluctuations of emotions are what keeps your adrenaline going and your NEED to finish the book.

My sister is rooting for the good guy and I am definitely pulling towards the bad guy... he gives a whole new meaning to the term evil!

Good Points
This is edge of your seat gripping!

Best Book I've Read in a Long Time

Wow it has been a long time since I have read a book with such a unique world. Bear Towne University has a lot of fun little quirks and I think we are only at the beginning of it. The book starts dark with Hailey's sister's murder and a lot of background about her home life. The book really comes to life once she moves to Alaska and Bear Towne University. Yeti spray and ghost traps that don't work. All the while Hailey is trying to make friends with class mates who want nothing to do with her. Two guys who both want her and don't want her depending on the time and fighting off murder attacks. This book is full of action and keeps moving. I loved this book and the second book cannot come out soon enough.

Good Points
Gets you going from the beginning of the book until the end.

Amazing Imagination

Is Eerie 2 coming out soon? I want it NOW! :-D

Good Points
A cross between Harry Potter and Twilight. That's what I thought when I started this book. What a ride! I can't WAIT for the next installment. I found this author when I lost a Bouncy Box giveaway on Amazon and boy, am I glad I found her. I emailed her and told her how much I loved just the thought of reading this, and a few days and a few emails later, she let me know she had a copy for me! WOOHOO! I can't say enough good things about this book. It's YA, paranormal and amazingly well written. What an imagination to be able to invent this complicated world that sucks me in like this one did. Did I mention I'm a fan now? Hurry up and release the next one, please!

Eerie is a "Must Read" Book, Watch out Harry Potter!

I absolute LOVED the book and couldn't put it down, It starts out rather sweet with Holly and Hailey helping and step dancing at their Uncle Pix's Irish pub. Hailey has typical school issues related to a family tragedy with secrets;) Then Hailey's big sister Holly disappears & is found "shredded", The book takes a decidedly darker turn with Hailey deciding to go to Bear Towne University to major in ParaScience. The book is like a young adult Harry Potter but better (IMHO). The secondary characters are AWESOME. A poltergeist that does hair and a Banshee with issues. The characters are complex & you never know who to root for . I couldn't decide who to root for Asher, an Envoy with heart or Fin who just can't make his mind up. I can't wait for book 2 which promises more surprises.

Good Points
Eerie is amazingly well written, it grabbed me and took me to an increadible place where magic, University life and real life all collide into a fantastic story. I can't wait for book 2 to come out to read more about Hailey, Asher, Fin and the other awesome characters.

Eerie, one of the best out there for all genre lovers!

Eerie is one of those books that you get lost in. You forget about reality and become part of the book. The only other author that has ever been able to do that to me is Stephen King. And that is saying a lot! It is an award-winning novel, compared to Harry Potter and featured in People magazine that will keep you wanting more!

You will want to be late for work, you will stay up until 4 a.m. to finish it, you will scream when it is finished because you will not want it to be over! You will laugh, you will cry, you will love, you will hate, you will want to throw the book across the room and then run and get it real quick so that you can see what happens next LOL. This book draws you into the middle of nowhere and the mystery and heartbreak and angst of the characters. It is so impeccably written that you feel every emotion and see every site that the characters see. That's not the right way to say it. You don't see it and feel it, you experience it with them! Those of us that have experienced this book are constantly on edge waiting on book two. This is the best book I have read in years and I am anxiously anticipating book 2 comma along with many many many others! You will not regret this purchase! I guarantee it! Just remember, this is not just a book, This truly is an experience!

Good Points
Eerie has something to offer for everyone! If you are a romance lover, it has it. If you are a paranormal lover, it has it. If you are a suspense lover, it has it. If you are a mystery lover, it has it. If you are a humor lover, it has it. Any genre of book that you like, including historically accurate, it is in this book! There is absolutely nothing not to like about this book! And it is not just for young adult! This book is for all ages!

Eerie is Awesome!

I found Eerie by chance, or maybe fate, either way, I LOVED this book. C.M. McCoy captured the ambiance of her entwined worlds in a unique way. Think Harry Potter, Twilight, The Beauty and The Beast, mix well - then toss them in a cauldron while they percolate into one sensational tip-tapping brew of dark drama, romance, and paranormal occurrences. While I see elements of the aforementioned books, C.M. McCoy’s characters and worlds are hers alone.

Eerie introduces us to sisters, Hailey and Holly, who wait tables and tap-dance at their uncle’s pub. Their parents died when they were young, and ever since Hailey’s had vivid dreams of Envoys and of Asher trapped in the Aether.

Because of her past tragedy and her dream-monsters, Hailey, a high school senior feels more than the normal teen pressures of boys, prom, graduation, and college. But she manages, until the evening Holly takes out the trash and doesn’t come back. Hailey runs out to the dumpster calling for her sister, finally finding Holly’s shoe, with her severed foot still inside.

In her search for answers, Hailey enrolls in a paranormal university in Alaska where she studies the supernatural. Hailey must survive her weird, unique classes, and comes to terms with things like her sneakers running away from her.

She must decide who to trust. Can her dream-monster, Asher who controls the school, save her from the other immortals? Is gorgeous womanizer Fin a friend or foe? What about her roommate from Hell, the banshee, Gisele?

With an unexpected ending, Eerie will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. As for me, I’m eagerly awaiting the second book in this series.

Eerie sits on my bookshelf with the few select books I’ve re-read. The first time I raced through to the end, flipping the pages in excitement and trying to guess what was coming. My second read was months later and mostly to revisit the weird and amazing characters I already missed.


Good Points
Eerie is a spellbinding, well-crafted read. I was on the edge of my seat from start to finish.

Eerie Thrill

Eerie is a thrilling paranormal romance and an engaging mystery. Hailey Hartley enrolls into the ParaScience University in Alaska after her sister Holly goes missing. Safety from paranormal beings lurking in the shadows and dreams seem possible at this unique school. The Envoy, called Asher, is a ruthless creature but has feelings for Hailey. The book has an exciting plot and engaging characters.

The location of the ParaScience University in Alaska does allow for the supernatural elements to be more compelling. Also Alaska is so far from Hailey’s home and regular life, it drives home the fact that her life has so greatly changed. The thought put into the world building of this book is good. The other students at the ParaScience University are great and quirky.

Hailey Hartley is certainly an interesting character. The disappearance of her sister is the starting point of the supernatural change in her life. From then on her life will never be the same again. The really vivid nightmares are a key part to the plot. Asher is an immortal creature called an Envoy who wants to kill Hailey to save her. Finn is a boy who likes Hailey but is controlled by supernatural elements also intent on killing Hailey.

This book will easily be loved by those who have enjoyed reading Harry Potter, Twilight, and other such books. A sensational teen paranormal romance that held my interest right to the very last word. Irish dancing, a ParaScience University, and immortal creatures are just some of the exciting things to be found in this book.

Good Points
1. The ParaScience University in Alaska
2. The supernatural/paranormal plot
3. The well written and quirky characters.
