I love supporting poets and I'm equally glad to see some great new voices available for Kindle. E.J. Stevens is one of those talented new voices. All the poems in the collections are based on fantasy figures, they're accessible and really fire the imagination. What I especially love about her work is that I believe it will appeal to anyone hooked on the Young Adult or Adult Paranormal Fiction genre, linking these readers to poetry and to broader exposure of archetypes and legends that form the foundation of so much of our fantasy fiction today. In other words, relevant poetry that forms a bridge to modern fiction. Take it with you on your next walk through the woods...and be inspired to envision the Otherworld folk she conjures.

'I love poetry and so when I opened up this particular book for the first time and started reading, I quickly became captured by the imagery and depth that is so beautifully revealed within this amazing collection of paranormal poems written by E.J. Stevens.
This slim book is divided into four parts under the headings of Earth and Below; Air and Spirit; Fire and War; and Water and Ice. The four headings acts as the structure within this book, around which 54 paranormal poems written by E.J. Stevens are presented.
Each poem found within this book recounts a vivid story which at times can be dark, haunting, disturbing and yet beautiful in its own individual way.
For lovers of paranormal writing and those who have not read anything from the paranormal genre before, this collection of poems is really worth obtaining and taking time to read.
