by Jennifer Ortiz 5.0 out of 5 stars True love always prevails! 11/18/2016 on Blank Business Name

Wow!!! I loved the book!!! This book has lots of supernaturals, some I have never heard of before. The romance and adventure are fantastic. I seriously loved the explanation of the colors of the stars in the sky. It was an amazing read! Kudos to the author!!!I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book.

"The tale is well-written, and the author is a master storyteller of the immortal world."

“Escaped the Night” by Jennifer Blyth takes us on a magical and dangerous and sexy journey. The beginning starts off with a shocking bang, and the way the story unfolds and how everything is connected pulls you in and takes you to another world where day and night collide. I have to say I really liked reading this and like the author’s writing style a lot. I really felt like I was there in Shanntal’s head (for better or worse) and even though there are some disturbing elements, and many of the scenes are pretty fantastical, there is a level of believability there that makes reading these books a magical, rewarding, almost surreal experience. I’m happy to have discovered this author and will recommend it to fans of YA fiction, romance, fantasy, and paranormal.

I read tons of paranormal novels, so I already had the bar set pretty high in my mind for them. I am so happy that I wasn’t at all disappointed with “Escaped the Night”! I think I even liked this one a bit more than normal--- I enjoyed the real world/fantasy world blend but still had that strong magical/paranormal element. I loved how I was able to totally lose myself in this unique and imaginative world that is so much fun! Love picturing how the characters (especially Jayce and Shanntal) look, and I could totally see this being a movie or something. Hope the series continues! Recommend for fans of NA fantasy and paranormal romance.

I do read a lot of books by lesser known authors (I like to give them a chance and maybe discover new talent). But inevitably I’m left disappointed more often than not. But even if Ms. Blyth’s novel, “Escaped the Night” wasn’t perfect, it delivered an entertaining ride with complex ideas that pulls you in and makes you emotionally invested whether you want to or not. I enjoyed the author’s energetic and passionate writing, but also the characters themselves (even the bad ones) and there are plenty! Shanntal is a great heroine, and I loved Uncle Dane and Aunt Steph (And Jayce and Daray weren’t bad either…) For the most part the pacing was good, I did think there was too much telling backstory in the beginning that slowed it down a bit after the exciting opener, and at times the narrative dragged a bit. But I liked that it was unpredictable and not completely cliché, and I enjoyed it all the way through and thought it was a great New Adult fantasy-romance.

"Escaped the Night” is the first book I’ve read from this author, but it came highly recommended from a person whose opinion I trust. Not only was I not disappointed, I was even more impressed with it than I’d expected to be! I loved Jennifer Blyth’s storytelling abilities and style of writing—the distinctive ‘voice’. It is so simple and easy to read, but each sentence and page packs so much emotion and imagery that you really get a bang for your buck. “Escaped the Night” is an intoxicating work of creativity, passion, sensuality, and imagination. It stretches the boundaries for this type of fiction in new ways that really impressed me. I read paranormal and fantasy all the time, (and a lot of vamp fiction) but this one stood out to me as being exceptionally complex, and feeling fresh and original. I finished it in three days which is practically a record for me because I’m a slow reader with not much time and this is a pretty long book. But I couldn’t put it down! I was happy with the ending, but I really wish there were more! Recommend for older readers and fans of YA and NA paranormal.

“Escaped the Night” by Jennifer Blyth is a really good read with an interesting concept and some of the most genuine ‘YA” narrative and prose I’ve come across in a long while….. And just when I thought I was done with vampires forever and had read every possible angle they could take. Make no mistake, there are plenty of subplots happening here, At times I almost felt like it was too much, although the author describes it very well, and I know it’s instrumental to the overall storyline and with what is happening with the main characters. It’s just sometimes seemed like overkill when I would’ve preferred to maybe see a deeper emotional relationship build between the characters instead. This is a great combination of a character driven literary novel as well as an action-packed one, and there is great energy that whisks us along. The thing that struck me the most was just how genuine and authentic it all came across… like how teens and creatures would really talk and act…. In a frighteningly good way. Curious to see if there will be more books like this and where they will go. The ending seems to leave room open for more, but I don’t really see any mention.

“Escaped the Night” by Jennifer Blyth was such a great find! I’m so happy I discovered this author, and I love how long of an ebook it is!! I like that I can really lose myself in the story and with the fascinating characters. Blyth’s writing is very descriptive and I felt like I was really inside this unique world the author created. I liked that it made me think outside the box and wasn’t just another formulaic vampire story. This was really original, I thought, but at the same time comfortingly familiar. My only beef was that it felt like it took too long to get going (even though there is good, crazy action at the beginning), for there to be the tension needed to really hook us in to having to keep reading. At times I thought some of the narrative went on a bit too long (too much ‘telling’) and there were some minor editing things I noticed. But despite that I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read the next book from Jennifer Blyth soon. Definitely recommend for fans of YA paranormal & fantasy romance.

“Escaped the Night” by Jennifer Blyth was one of the most unexpectedly awesome books I’ve read in a while. To be totally honest, at first I wasn’t sure I’d like it because I had a hard time figuring out what it was about from the description, and I’ve been a bit burned out on paranormal lately (*they are all starting to feel the same*). But I was really impressed with the opening sample, and thought I’d take a chance. Well, I’m so glad I did! Much to my surprise it was so unique and original, it really was unlike anything I’d read, and in a good way!! I loved the fresh approach on vampire lore, and there were so many amazing characters ((Shanntal, Ginata (!), Jayce, Daray and all the others are great)) It had so many interesting plot twists and once I got into the book it was impossible to put down, and once I finished I immediately looked for the next one, hoping the storyline continued! “Escaped the Night” is a wonderful book for reading on those cold winter nights—A fantastical, yet believable storyline that leaves you wanting more. Probably best suited for YA/ NA, but can see older readers enjoying it as well.

by Gillian Hancock– Goodreads; Shelfari; Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers on Blank Business Name

I like how even though this novels is about vampires, which is a topic that seems to have been covered from almost every conceivable angle, the story never becomes predictable or feels cliché, and there are some serious plot twists I didn’t see coming… The characters were so well developed and fleshed out I feel like I knew them personally, and for such a ‘paranormal’ themed book, it felt strangely believable… like more ‘real’ than most fantasy/paranormals, if this makes sense. The pacing was good, but there were some editing errors (more towards the beginning than later on…)An emotionally seductive and satisfying ‘escape’ that I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a great paranormal novel with a unique take on the vampire myth. Jennifer Blyth did a terrific job making this story feel like something we haven’t read a million times, which is pretty impressive. Ready for more from this author! Recommend.
