I loved this book, read it in an afternoon, while trying to cook supper and manage to keep my boys from killing each other. The only thing i took issue with is the use of British slang, I didn't see any mention of anyone being an expat or anything so when words like gobsmacked, loo and bloody were used it threw me off a bit. Had me wondering if I missed something. Aside from that this book was exciting, dark, and addictive. I couldn't put it down. Cindy's madness was torture, the darkness she succumbs to is scary for so many reasons, I imagined being in her situation and how frightening it would be, just the idea of insanity is terrifying enough but..... chills down my spine again.. Dark dark dark.....

Review by: Janus Gangi on Nov. 16, 2011 :
Well, I did it I read a book out of my normal genre. Djinn is my very first horror book, and I must say, I was introduced to the genre right! My perception of what a good horror story is; one that gets your heart racing and keeps you on the edge of your seat. This book did this for me and more. The dialogue was rich. It is written in first person from two perspectives. Each perspective was of a well developed character and it was also enlightening.

I have read many possession accounts, but never from the viewpoint of the one possessed. All the emotions of fear, confusion, and disbelief were masterfully woven into an easy reading and very entertaining story. I have come to the conclusion, that every other horror book I read from now on is going to have to be held up to a high standard, now that I have read this book. If you like horror you will definitely love this book. I did!

Poppet has an amazing imagination, but more than that she has the strength of plot and characters in her work...and I’ll tell you how I know this. I could not read Djinn in one sitting (or at most two as I usually do when reading to review a book), because life got a bit hectic. When I returned, however, I discovered I had not lost my place in the story because Poppet’s characters stayed with me and were waiting for me to continue the journey! No problem with plot either; I got right back into it.
I recommend that you, reader, go to it in one or two sittings, because then you’ll get the entire vivid experience, the heart thumps and the ‘oooh’s’! You’ll love and hate the genie in a book, never quite knowing whether to trust it or not...until all is revealed. And that is as much as I’ll reveal here: grab your copy today!

Review by: Sessha Batto on July 05, 2011 :
The first words that come to mind when talking about Djinn are profoundly disturbing. This is a horror story that crept under my skin and had me torn between my urge to turn the page, and my fear of reading it in the middle of the night. This is horror at its finest, the kind that has you jumping at every sound. I particularly appreciated Poppet's portrayal of Cinn's deterioration, the whipcord POV between two entities warring in the same body left me feeling as disoriented as Cinn must have been, which really put me into the story. If you want a truly immersive tale of the occult, look no further. Djinn will leave you wondering what you might have invited in to your own life, and keep you looking over your shoulder for weeks to come.
