**Finalist for the 2012 The Word Guild Awards, Novel -- Futuristic Category**

An entity from nothing space and time, Akaesman lurks in his dominion, waiting, watching through his peephole into our world for the right prey. And when he spots a good one, he forces himself into our space and time, evading the Akaesman patrol, invading his chosen one. He spreads his evil to everyone, one by one, male and female, changing them forever into his image. But the young songwriter and her fiancé, enjoying the end of their road trip, have never heard of Akaesman.

On the eve of the summer solstice, they fly home to Toronto down a local highway past slumbering fields, toward a thick starlight-sucking forest, oblivious of their destination: Akaesman. He comes out of a green neon wind. He smacks their car; he cracks the window; he's in her. Her songwriting career is dead. Her name is gone. When she learns of his presence, she resists him; she wrestles with him; she seeks help in her battle. Yet she loses ground. She's ready to quit. And that's when she discovers that there is more than one kind of evil...

"Put simply this is the best urban fantasy story that I have ever read period." Shane Porteous on She, from his Goodreads review.

"I found myself caught up in the story and carried through to the end. It's not in a genre I would normally enjoy (though to be honest, in that context it's hard to classify "She"), but I did enjoy it and would strongly recommend it." Andrew Fogg on She, from his Amazon UK review.

"I found this an unusual and interesting read. It was suspenseful right to the last page. I would recommend it to all lovers of Fantasy." Primula on She, from her Amazon UK review.

"Shireen's pen has all the force of a great storyteller and the artistic skills of reviving a past scene in its most original form." Ernest Dempsey on Shireen Jeejeebhoy's award-winning biography Lifeliner: The Judy Taylor Story

"If you want a book you can't put down, get Lifeliner into your hands..." Gloria Oren on Shireen Jeejeebhoy's award-winning biography Lifeliner: The Judy Taylor Story

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

""She" is an incredibly well written novel that made me feel like I had stepped into the main character's shoes and was able to physically feel her struggling to survive. Because of this, I found this novel very difficult to put down." - Paige Lovitt for Reader Views

"From word one I was hooked into this tale, possessed by it if you will. I found myself more than once looking over my shoulder convinced that someone or rather something was watching me waiting for its opportunity to enter my world." - Shane Porteous on Smashwords
