“Jeyran has written an insightful, engaging review, eloquently written. She captured both the excitement of the story and the deeper thinking behind it, creating intrigue without spoilering the plot (not an easy feat, because it twists and turns a fair bit).

“If you have already read The House of the Soul, you will find my words were laced with a certain irony. One of the insights the protagonist learns on her journey is not to rely on validation from the outside world, but to find it within yourself. As an author, I’m afraid my spiritual journey has not evolved that far. Instead, I rush to read any new review and bask in the validation of my work wherever I can find it!

I highly recommend utilizing Jeyran’s many talents if you’re after an insightful review of your work.”
