#BookReview: The Upside Down of Nora Gaines by Cathrina Constantine

Synopsis: Nora has visions of horrific things. Things that lurk in the shadows and feast on bones. After moving with her mother into an old farmhouse, Nora discovers a blank journal that fills itself with an ominous warning. A cursed beast is coming for her and time is running out. When the blood moon rises, so shall the beast.

Local teen, Rebel, has his own trepidations about the house. His parents, both paranormal scientists, were investigating it when they died under mysterious circumstances. His growing feelings for Nora motivate him to battle the ghosts of his past, if it means keeping her safe.

Allies to turn to enemies. Fiction turns to fact. The past and the present collide. All in an epic battle to claim unfathomable power. Can Nora unlock the secrets buried within the farmhouse in time to save herself and those dear to her from a grisly fate?


Rating: 3 Stars
My Review: This was a pretty interesting story it felt more fantasy vs. paranormal but that was ok.  The cover is what grabbed my attention and I am so glad it did.  I liked the story and the characters, this one was not a favorite but it was worth the read. 


  • "This mind-bending original piece of art hooks one in for an action-packed, phenomenal story, only to have one's jaw dropped on the floor by its merciless plot twists." ~ InD'tale Magazine.

  • "Whoa! This one is original, promising, deliciously creative!" ~ Nilufer O., Net Galley Reviewer.
  • Wow, wow wow! This book was amazing! This book has mystery, action, a little bit of horror, romance and fantasy. Catharine Constantine is an amazing author, she has an inimitable way of writing. Her storytelling is brought to life, amazingly tuned to details and the way the characters are brought to life you feel like you know them. ~ Victoria, NetGalley Reviewer.
  • "This is a fantastic YA paranormal read. I was sucked into the detailed setting of the old farmhouse and little town. The perfect creepy atmosphere for all the supernatural happenings. Ghosts, a beast, and magic. It was so much fun!" ~ Christine Rains, best selling author. 
  • "The unique and beautiful descriptions used by the author gave me the feeling I was reading a fairytale. Combining the experience of falling in love with the angst of teenage years, a mystical diary and a rundown farmhouse with a history of unexplained mysterious deaths, author Cathrina Constantine slowly sets the stage for an epic read I highly recommend to readers who enjoy paranormal fantasy, mystery and suspense." ~ Anca McNamara, reviewer.
