Book Description

23 July 2011
**Shortlisted for the 2012 The Word Guild Awards** 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

Iguana Books published her latest non-fiction book "Concussion Is Brain Injury" at 2012's end. Her main credential to write this book is as a person with a brain injury. But she also drew on her education and experience. She was trained in the scientific method and, from her experience in research labs and research jobs, is schooled in designing, conducting, analyzing, and writing up research papers. As part of her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology at the University of Toronto, she studied physiology and neurophysiology, did an original-research thesis on reducing inattention in a child with attention deficit disorder, and conducted a year-long study on food perception in various eating populations and wrote the Abstract. For "Lifeliner," she conducted over sixty interviews, read the literature, and waded through a massive amount of medical data in order to translate into English that the lay reader can understand.

Jeejeebhoy is working diligently on her next three novels, and when she is not writing, reading, or taking photographs, she hunts for good coffee and sensational chocolate.

3.0 out of 5 stars A must for all fantasy lovers 7 Nov 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
SHE is written by Canadian Author Shireen Jeejeebhoy.

One fated night a young songwriter and her fiance are out driving when they collide with something unknown and unseen to them. Through the green neon winds this thing cracks the window and invades into her being.

As they approach the Highway Patrol the word Akaesman is first mentioned on that eve of Summer Solstice.

'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'

Not only is her songwriting ability gone from this moment but also her life as she knows it.

Can anyone explain what has happened to her? Can she rid herself of it, Can she re-build her life and be herself again?

I will be honest I was reluctant to read this book at first when Shireen approached me to review it for her as fantasy is not my cup of tea. After reading it, I'm still not sure where I stand on this genre! Shireen has written a book packed full of emotion and really gets over to you the struggle that this girl is facing without the support and love of her friends around her, and boy what a struggle she has. As the story progressed, I started to lose my compassion for the lead as I wanted more from her, I wanted her to help herself more but that is the point of the whole story and the part I had difficulty in understanding. I imagine anyone who loves fantasy novels with spirits that they can't see etc would really enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring! 23 Nov 2013
By Bodicia
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is interesting for two reasons; not only is it a well written fantasy book in its own right it also holds, for me, a deeper meaning. The main character has been invaded by an alien force called Akaesman and this invasion causes the character to change radically; emotionally and physically. The deeper meaning is this could be the story of almost every person who has a 'hidden' disease, whether that be M.E., Fibromyalgia, Lupus or other disorders which can't be seen or understood easily by those around them.

Zarine, the 'she' in the story, is having a normal evening drive with her fiancee. On the way they encounter a force on a forest road which blows the car off course and causes Zarine to be slightly injured. Her fiancée gets control over the car again and they reach the edge of the forest where they are stopped by the Akaesman Patrol who look them over and advise Zarine to visit her GP first thing. After her encounter Zarine starts to change physically, mentally and emotionally. Her friends put this down to a lack of will, depression and laziness, mocking what they can't see or understand and telling her it's all in her mind. Zarine is bewildered but struggles on, helping herself the best way she can whilst facing professionals who tell her she is perfectly fine. Eventually she finds the help she needs and embracing faith and expressing true grit she pushes through to her conclusion.

This book follows the story of a woman who was normal one day and who gradually became unable to do the things she once took for granted. It looks at her relationship with her friends and family, the inevitable 'pull yourself together' conversations and the lack of care from some health professionals who simply don't have the answers but won't admit it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Tour Read 18 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
How realistic was the characterization? Loved the forest scene. Was dark and eerie. Felt like you were right there in the car with them.

What are some of the book's themes? How important were they? The forest, her apartment, all the different doctors, she had to see. All played an important role in conveying, what she went thru.

Cover - I liked the cover

What I didn't like - The friends abandoning her

I received this book as part of Orangeberry Book Tours

4.0 out of 5 stars She - a tale of a personal journey 11 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
"She" is the story of a woman's struggle to recover from an unexpected and life-changing event. The story is presented as a tale of possession in the spiritual sense, but is a metaphor for the journey back to health from any accident or illness that forces the victim to rebuild many of their basic mental or physical capabilities from scratch. As such it is loosely based on the author's own experience, which makes the story ring true throughout. It's not a light read - the narrative gives a real sense of a grinding, uphill struggle in the face of persistent adversity - but it is well written, well cast, and evokes its settings and characters clearly. Towards the end it gets a little mystical and there's more or less a deus ex machina to get to the happy ending, but 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.
