Is Zenna a muse, a sleep-deprived apparition, or something much more sinister?
Suffering long-term amnesia, artist Jo Mckye is ready to start a fresh, new project after the success of her debut exhibition. But the fictional subject of the collection, Zenna, won’t let go so easily. Infiltrating Jo’s dreams—and increasingly, her waking hours—Zenna is fast becoming a dangerous obsession.
Jo is confident the answers lie at her childhood home, an idyllic Cornish village on the south-east coast; she just doesn’t know why. Only when she walks into the sea and almost drowns does the past start to unravel.
Haunting and melodic, fans of Daphne du Maurier and Daisy Johnson will adore this.
This is a really quick, excellently paced story that creates a lot of intrigue. It explored grief, mental health and relationships throughout.
Throughout this story we are following Jo who believes she is being haunted by a character that she paints.
The whole way through this novel I was very intrigued about was this story going to turn supernatural at all and I was really excited to see where the author was going to take this story.
The way the author tells this story is quite chaotic and almost made me feel like I was losing my mind as so much was happening.
I’m still quite unsure how I feel about some.of the characters and the things they did in this story in relation to Jo.
The ending didn’t sit 100% with me and I can’t really explain why without spoiling this story so I’ll leave my review here.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy read that fills you with a bunch of different emotions this one is for you.
