More About the Author

My name is Katrina Jack and I write YA urban fantasy. I began writing many years ago, but Land of Midnight Days is my first published work. A few years back I had a bit of a windfall and invested some of it in obtaining a degree in creative writing at Liverpool John Moores University.

Although I primarily write urban fantasy, I also enjoy other genres, such as murder mysteries, romance and biographies. My favourite authors, in the fantasy genre are: Robin Hobb, Jim Butcher, David Gemmell, Jack Vance and many more.

You can visit me at my blog: Kate Jack's Blog, at: http://kateannejack.wordpress.com/ or my Facebook Page at: https://www.facebook.com/KatrinaAnneJack
I welcome any feedback or comments.

I was born in October 1956, in the wonderful city of Liverpool, at the now demolished hospital known as Sefton General, which was so ill equipped in those days, that my poor mother's drip was hung from an old broom pole! Talk about the lap of luxury, eh?

I still live in Liverpool, in an area rich in public gardens and parks, plus a cemetery and a crematorium - great for inspiration, believe it or not. Included in some of the wonderful historical buildings in the area, is the mansion house known as Allerton Hall, former home of Richard Lathom, who fought as a Royalist during the civil war and is a grade II listed building. It makes a guest appearance in my novel, under a different guise of course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great YA fiction 20 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a dystopian YA fiction, a genre which has been on the rise since the success of the The Hunger Games. The story here is original and there are plenty of interesting characters involved in an alternative world. Even if you wouldn't normally read YA fiction, this is worth a go!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful 20 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Powerful storytelling by a fresh new talent. There have been quite a few dystopian future-type books around but few deliver as well as this one. I think it is down to the characters and how believable Kate Jack makes them, which means you care what happens. Jeremiah is a very good main character and I think this book hits the mark for its target audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch Urban Fantasy 19 Dec. 2013
Format:Hardcover
I'd had the pleasure of reading a great deal of this book on a writing site long, long ago, but was never able to finish the book until recently. Wow! This book definitely lived up to all the wonderful things I'd heard about it from other readers. The story clips along at breakneck speed, never letting up for a second, as Jeremiah is plunged into unimaginable danger.

The author has created a world where danger lurks around every corner and the general population are so cowed by fear, that they won't rise up to defend themselves. It's a world populated by Gangers, Wanna-Be's, Ogres, and Elwyn. Jeremiah Tully, a mute half-Elwyn, faces constant hatred and prejudice. His life is dictated by a cruel and abusive guardian (Ezra) who provides Jeremiah a place to live in exchange for playing his flute at Ezra's club. As if ordinary life isn't dangerous enough, there is an epic battle is brewing and Jeremiah somehow finds himself at the center of it.

Jeremiah is a sympathetic character, but many of the characters who are supposed to be "good guys" are not very likable at all. The people who should have Jeremiah's best interests at heart sometimes become so caught up in Jeremiah's destiny, they forget he's a person in his own right. As Jeremiah struggles to survive, he is also facing an internal struggle as he realizes his life is full of secrets and disappointment.

I'd recommend this book to older teens and adults who enjoy complex, well-written urban fantasy. It's definitely worth your time reading. You won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting 27 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Land Of Midnight Days is one of those gripping books that once I started, I couldn't put down because I just had to know what happened next. It begins with a chase and basically carries the reader from one dramatic event to the next. The characters are vividly brought to life in such a way that you can identify with each of them, and the City is described in such detail that you could almost be there, living through the drama. I really enjoyed this novel and can't wait read the next part of the trilogy. I absolutely recommend it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Roll over, Mozart. 30 Oct. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Katrina Jack managed to accomplish what I thought would never happen--enjoy urban fantasy. It was never a genre that I cared for. However, from the outset of her storytelling, I was won over. She clarifies the immediate tension via a `message' of hate. By describing Jeremiah's more slender-than-usual frame, we imagine what the Wannabes look like. The girl with the scar in the window was haunting and kept me interested in the plot. And then we have Ezra. Well, who could not move on to chapter two?
I love the line about Jeremiah: He knew how to survive but not how to live. The world Ms. Jack paints here, one of violence and apathy, is one we can relate to; as we likewise understand Jeremiah's weariness over contempt and bigotry. How compelling it is when the author then weaves in something beautiful.
Throughout, this tale keeps the reader riveted. I am glad that I obtained a copy of this. Three cheers for Land of Midnight Days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Land of the Midnight Days 23 Aug. 2012
By Suchea
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A dystopian fantasy, set in a futuristic city and modernising demons and elves and ogres in a highly original way. Intended for a YA audience but complex enough to interest any age. I took the book on holiday and couldn't wait to get back from whatever I was doing to read the next bit. A real page turner by a talented new writer, clever and exciting.
