    1. My teenage years are very far behind me, and further I m male, so I m certainly not one of the readers this novel is primarily aimed at, but I enjoyed it nonetheless Lately I ve been looking at a few young adult novels because I m toying with the idea of writing one myself, and this one particularly caught my eye because its language is quick footed and fun to read Practically every sentence sparkles with lively details that immediately bring the characters and places to life.The story involves [...]


    2. Westward to Strange is an evil mermaid epic This book comes in one of the most beautiful book covers in existence.A spine tingling and fabulous read The darkest example of aqua based underwater fantasy fiction I ve ever read.Westward to Strange is a brilliant adaptation of ancient mythology, with a unique take on the dark legend of sirens The killer merfolk are absolutely terrifying My whole life I know I will never be able to forget about the dark water nor the sinister beings that dwell there. [...]


    3. I d like to thank the author and publisher for sending me a copy of this book to read and review.This book definitely held my interest, and I read it over 3 sittings On the positive side, the characters were well written and likeable and the basic plot interesting and exciting.Unfortunately some things let this book down The timeline jumps around all over the place which was really confusing, and at times the writing does not flow well This reads like a self published book, and certainly looks l [...]


    4. My library is promoting this book They do that with local authors, sometimes I m not done with it, but so far I really like it The characters are a lot of fun and the dialogue is cool I ve never read anything with mermaids, which I like So far, so good I ll add when I finish it.


    5. This book is a great example of the young adult genre, without the predictable monsters we have come to expect The foreshadowing was well placed, and the characters were relatable and likable I look forward to seeing of Ray s work, reminds me of reading Christopher Pike as a kid.




    6. How do you like your mermaid stories Do you prefer them to be Disney esque Or do you prefer them to teeter on the edge of creepy If you prefer the latter, Westward to Strange is for you The mermaids in Westward to Strange are not friendly In fact, they are downright terrifying I have to give the author props for coming up with an original take on a siren There is an element of mythology in the book that is new and unique, at least to me I also thought the concept behind these killer mermaids hel [...]


    7. When I first saw this book, I was really excited to read this novel, over all I was a little disappointed in the story Like any book there are the faults in this particular book I had trouble finding out who the main characters were up until chapter four I also feel like there was too much going on and not enough detail on them making it feel rushed in a sense to me personally I did enjoy the ideas and concepts of the dark and murderous mermaids and The white tails i just would of enjoyed learni [...]


    8. First, I believe this story has A LOT of potential It reads like a self publish, but with a professional editor I think it could be terrific The first chapter was really confusing and I recommend re writing it or dropping it completely By chapter 4 I began to grasp who the main characters where I found the story confusing because the timeline wasn t clear One example is Lula and her friend where crossing the street late at night to the mall parking lot Then in the next sentance not a new paragra [...]


    9. My reviewI really enjoyed this book It was a fast paced book It was not like the typical books I read However I liked the magical aspect that was in this book I think this book will appeal to teens and adults.
