REVIEW: End Of Mae

I have re-reviewed this book for Angelas special re-introduction of her book End of Mae to world!  Its called End of Mae Awareness Month!  For more info on this awesome event visit her blog! The link is below!

I recently reread a book by my friend Angela Smith called End Of Mae.  The story is about Mae a reporter at her local newspaper looking to make it big as an investigative reporter.  She loves the smaller paper she works for, but feels she is destined for bigger and better things so she is always on the hunt for her “next big story”.  As the book begins we find her near her homeless friend Bea who is currently sleeping in a Frigidaire box.  Recently, their has been an influx of “pineys” or other homeless people like Bea disappearing and Mae wants to get to the bottom of why this is happening.  She has heard stories that some have thought that the disappearances have been the work of The Jersey Devil.

Her friend, currently asleep in her box it seems has peed herself.  So, Mae decides to pack it in for the night and is reaching down to grab her bag when she is blindsided with a smack from an unknown assailant.  She tries to get a way from the possible murderer, and gets a few good hits in, but is just as quickly overtaken and knocked out.   She wakes in a dark room with a strangely glowing floor. Where after some questioning from a mysterious voice she is beaten up after which she figures she will be left for dead.  The man that mysterious voice is connected to, however, has other plans.

I enjoyed this book a lot! It was scary without being too gory and very suspenseful. It is also shorter then most novels I read so it was easy to get through in only a few hours.

A Little about Angela……

I met Angela thru the virtual world platform of Second Life some time ago, or rather her as her avatar Dandilyon Jinx.  We bonded over books at a meet and greet meeting at MWGA (Magazine Writers Guide Association) headquarters.  Learn more about Angela by visiting her blog Dandilyon Fluff.
