Escaped the night

Full of vampires, werewolves, fairies, and immortals, this book takes the reader on an in-the-night adventure with newly orphaned Shanntal. Her world is turned upside-down at the death of her family but then dives even deeper into turmoil when she learns she is not who, or rather what, she thought she was -- an average human teenager. Romance is weaved throughout the story along with mystery, creating a false illusion of who Shanntal can trust. I found this book to have a lot of action and supernatural fantasy, and changed my mind several times on the identity of the bad guy. Teens will find a surprising ending in this great mixture of love and danger.

I'm such a fan!

Hi Jennifer,

Hope this email finds you well! My name is Shayne and I wanted to introduce myself and to send over a quick message to say that I love your books! Your stories are so rich and amazing, and I'm such a fan!


In this YA fantasy, tragedy leads a young woman to a new life, unusual friends, and the truth about her recurring nightmares.

Eighteen-year-old Shanntal of Greyton isn’t sleeping well. Her nightmares involve pursuit through the woods, a red-eyed figure, and a craving for blood. She hopes that her best friend, 20-year-old Ginata, will provide relief. Her parents drop her off at her spunky friend’s home for a sleepover, and Ginata suggests playing with a Ouija board. When a spirit named Daray answers, the game quickly takes a dark turn. The Ouija planchette spells out “I-WILL-FIND-YOU,” and Shanntal assumes she’s the target. The next evening, Ginata’s parents drive Shanntal home only to find a dark, empty-looking residence. Inside, Shanntal’s parents and younger siblings have been killed—drained of blood. After a hospital stay, she moves in with Auntie Stephanie and Uncle Danier on Blackwood Island. Life is lonely there until she meets Jayce Fallon, who has “deep brown eyes” and a sympathetic ear. He takes her to Mystic Beach and introduces his own friends—Terran, Aiden, Makan, and Meriel—who happen to be the immortal avatars of earth, air, fire, and water. Shanntal is amazed but can’t help but wonder what she’s done to deserve such a remarkable crop of new friends. In her novel, Blyth (Stormy Saturday, 2015) teases the answer while crafting a tense romantic triangle with Jayce, the telepathic keeper of the elements; Daray, a vampire with ties to Shanntal’s past; and the protagonist, whose memories of childhood are hazy. While Jayce’s mental connection to Shanntal is intrusive and potentially domineering, he promises to behave himself and “give space whenever needed.” Their lives together could be perfect, and the author deftly conveys that first splash into love (“I felt lightheaded, and my lips burned hot”). But vampires, werewolves, and hoofed doomahorns complicate their situation. On Shanntal’s side, aside from elementals, are unicorns, fairies, and shape-shifters like Layla. Though Blyth takes readers through familiar genre terrain (like the Twilight series), Shanntal’s determination to be more than a damsel in distress is key to her appeal.

An optimistic supernatural tale with both fresh and familiar ingredients.

Another world altogether

Escaped the night, I had such a hard time putting it down. I read it in like a day lol. It was so good. You were happy with the characters. You were sad with the characters. You laughed with them and you cried with them. You felt joy and you felt loss.

This is how a book is suppose to be. Its suppose to take you on an adventure that when you look up to realized that you are in the same room where you begun but your imagination went on a completely different level.

This is how imagination is made.

Where anything is possible, and above all else,

Dreams do come true, if you believe.

Because if you look up at the stars, if you look carefully..

You can see them smiling back at you.

"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.
