Shayna Grissom 

Publication date: April 1st 2019

Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Hell is divided into seven regions. The first region is designated for the purest of souls, the seventh is for the evilest. There was once a king of Hell, but the steward family has ruled for centuries.
Nora, the stepdaughter of the steward is undone when her mother and step-father take away her beloved tutor, Peter. When Nora confronts the steward and her mother, the discussion is heated and ends with the steward in inexplicable pain.
Shortly after, Nora finds herself in the Starry Wood. Peter told her of the perils within the forest, and it’s not long before the inhabitants of the wood find her.
A giant hunter named Aegis comes to Nora’s aid. He is drawn to Nora, compelled to protect her from the steward’s assassins, the giants, and the evil souls who escape the seventh region.
Together, they travel the seven layers of Hell to discover why the steward is so threatened by a teenage girl.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is a debut! What? Shayna Grissom writes as if she's been around and releasing books forever. Brilliant! I love Nora's character. I felt Nora was very relatable and she felt like a real person. I would totally love to be her best friend. As the story goes on, I was sucked right in. There's a shimmer of suspense; the book is thrilling and executed so well. Again, this is a debut?? Really? Okay, I believe you. Amazing.

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book. This is my honest, voluntary review. 

P.S. I need more of Shayna's writing.
