Aisling McConaughey is a shamaness in a post Apocalyptic world where the gifted are either hunted to death or live openly in segregated society. When she is taken from her home, Aisling has no choice but to accept the task given to her. She must go into the “ghostlands” to find the whereabouts of a wealthy man’s missing mistress. Aisling knows that the use of her power always comes at a piece. Little did she know that when she summoned a demon to save a woman’s life that she would meet a Djinn prince who would save her soul and introduce her to a passion so fierce it would steal her heart. However, the Djinn aren’t the only ones with an interest in Aisling and it is soon evident that her life is in danger.


Zurael en Caym like every other Djinn fears only two things in all the realms: being summoned and subject to the will of a human, and being lost to the ghostlands never to be reborn. When he is summoned by the alluring little human he vows to kill her once he completes his task but when he is charged with returning an ancient tablet to his people. Zurael decides to use his little human to locate the enemy who possesses the tablet. Even though the purity of Aisling’s spirit calls to him it is her passion he desires and it soon becomes impossible for him to resist the need to make Aisling his mate.


Jory Strong’s mainstream publishing debut couldn’t be more successful. Ghostland’s richly drawn, dynamic characters dictate the direction of this fascinating story. I got lost in this world. I couldn’t put it down and you won’t want to either.
