Publishers Weekly says of The Paradise Trap, “Jinks combines a plot filled with surreal twists and turns with a dash of Greek mythology in a novel that hits the mark on both the humor and horror fronts….Although several classic tropes appear, Jinks keeps her material fresh, weaving in old myths and the occasional bit of social commentary.” This new title will be great for Percy Jackson fans!
