The blurb from the back of the book:

A hypnotic, unforgettable Gothic page-turner soon to be a cult classic

One night in 2012, Zhang Guo Xing takes a group of European clients to a fashionable high-end nightclub in Shanghai. While there, he meets a strikingly beautiful young Finnish woman called Naemi Vieno Kuusela. The physical attraction between them proves irresistible, and they embark on an intoxicating affair. But Naemi is not what she appears to be…

To Zhang’s surprise, she veers between passion and wariness, conducting the relationship entirely on her own terms. He feels compelled to find out more about her, and is swiftly drawn into a web of intrigue, mystery, and horror. Is she a ghost? A demon? Do the living dead walk the streets of twenty-first century Shanghai?


This book was a real page turner that kept me hooked from the beginning. It was quite creepy at times too.

I loved the writing style which kept me intrigued and it really helped with the characters. The main character is Zhang and he is attracted to Naemi who is not quite what she seems.

The vividness of the story that the author has created is immense and reminds me of old vampire horror stories. I loved its gothic feel.

I would definitely recommend this story! I look forward to more from this author.

I gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
