    Stuff that nightmares are made of!!

    I was very intrigued wit the title of this book, Djinn by Poppet. This title stirs up images of Genies and magic carpet rides, but there is a much darker side that the world forgets. In this book Poppet captures the true darkness that haunts us all in the ancient myth of the Djinn. Her story follows Cindy and Sasha; Cindy a young woman who has a love of the occult and books. Her thirst for knowledge takes her to her favorite bookstore where she finds Sasha,who is the key to her destruction and survival, he gifts her with a book that will change their lives forever. As a lover of books, the idea that something can be "caught between the pages" so to speak was very disturbing. The horror of this story is right up there with the "Exorcist", and quite a few times I found myself feeling the same uneasy feeling I had when I read that book for the first time. This tales is classic horror with a "Devil in disguise" feeling that will spawn nightmares. This tale is well written ; the author has a very subtle way of writing horror that sneaks up on you and allows your own imagination to thrust you into the depths of hell. Though I did feel very disoriented reading the story with the different POV, which left me guessing and trying to get back on track. I realize now that this style of writing put me right into the story. I was feeling what Cindy was feeling as her life spiraled out of control as something more powerful and dark took over her life. At the time of reading, I did not like was the use of different faiths that Sasha sought out to try and find a way to help Cindy. But in hindsight it brings to light that in desperate times people will do whatever it takes to save the ones they love. I would like to give kudos to the author for her research on the different faiths in the story, she gives very detailed accounts that were true to form. All in all this was an easy and scary read. I recommend it for those who enjoy the darker side of the occult and are not afraid of things that go "bump in the night". For if you are afraid of what you can't see, then this book will keep you up at nights. Definitely not for the faint of heart. With that said I give this book 4 stars.
