“I was very pleased with Jeyran’s review of my book, it was very thorough and touched on the points that showed that Jeryan not only took the time to read it, but to also understand it. This is what I look for in a critic, because it will convey the right essence of the story, and will inspire others to read it as well. Thank you so much! I will definitely use you again!”

Jay Chirino – Author of “The Flawed Ones”

“Jeyran Main has written a succinct review of The City that Walked Away which conveys something of the essence of the book. She suggests, I think correctly, that the novel will appeal to people who are looking for something different and warns, quite rightly, that some people will find it difficult. I particularly liked her concept of ‘poetic-telling’.”
