Eloise meets Rosemary's Baby in New York City’s very own Carlyle hotelSeventeen year old Itzy Nash is spending the summer at the exclusive Carlyle hotel in New York City But the hotel harbors than the rich and privileged; it is host to a gorgeous fallen angel reclusive movie stars and It. Check out this and other reviews on my young adult book blog Here's to Happy EndingsA cross between historical fiction and fantasy Divah has a lot going on It's definitely a fun clever thrill ride though historical New York City's Carlyle Hotel a thrill ride full of all sorts of strange things we're talking angels and demons and all sorts of other things that the main character Itzy didn't expect when she had planned on spending the summer thereWhen I hear about a potentially great new horror novel I'm pretty much all over that waiting for it come out and sitting patiently waiting to get a copy I hadn't heard about Divah until it was almost time for the release date of the book somehow it got swept under my radar Also I'm not always one for fantasy elements such as demons and angels I often find them difficult to read through but that wasn't the case with Divah I thought it was kind of enjoyable and while it seemed a bit far fetched if you remind yourself that this book is supposed to be a paranormal fantasy it instantly becomes a lot fun of a readNo matter how many times I found myself reading the synopsis itself for this book I just didn't really connect with it it sounded confusing and difficult to grasp but once you get started with reading the book it's a lot better Itzy's character was a fun kick butt heroine who is dealing with all of these supernatural beings in the hotel where she's spending the summer It's a different kind of story definitely not something I've seen before in YA books and the originality aspect of the book really made it even betterThe whole haunted hotel angle had me right off the bat and it only gets interesting as the book goes on I have always loved the whole haunted hotelhaunted house type of book or movie and I am forever seeking out new books that fit this description If you're like me on that aspect give this one a goIf you like historical YA horror and paranormal this is a really great book to pick up I'm glad I had the chance to read itNote I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

Review Divah Author Susannah Appelbaum

Divah Author Susannah AppelbaZy soon learns demons of the worst sort When the ueen of the Damned checks in all Hell breaks loose Itzy is called upon to save herself and all of humanity from the ravages of the Underworld There’s only one problem Itzy’s possessedPart gothic thriller part historical fiction the novel. Itzy is a seventeen year old girl who is invited to spend some time with her snobby aunt at New York's Carlyle hotel Once there she meets freaky people and receives a torn up pamphlet about Divahs or female demons As her eyes are opened to the supernatural she realizes she is surrounded by soul stealing demons and fallen angelsWhen the ueen of the Damned checks into the hotel with the intent on possessing Itzy for eternity Itzy has to save herself and stop the ueen from opening the gates of Hell and unleashing death upon the worldMy Thoughts Truly a Gothic creep fest This story is the time old tale of the battle between good and evil one that replays itself several times throughout history The setting really steals the show The Carlyle hotel is the embodiment of long forgotten decorum and polite people who will sweep anything under the rug even murder The hotel is riddled with underground tunnels and strange staff members There is even a bar filled with paintings of bunniesItzy and Luc are the two main characters Luc is a fallen angel who is trying to earn back his wings by protecting Itzy and falling in love with her of course We get his back story and learn all about how he originally was fooled by the ueen of the Damned back in Paris 1789 Itzy is a fun character with an interest in photography I was amazed that she didn't run screaming from the hotel at the very beginningPossession demons oh my The story is an original tale of horror and dark fun I did find a couple plot issues which kept me from giving this one a perfect 5 I'm going to mention them so that if any of you figure them out you can let me know SPOILER ALERT First at the very beginning Luc mentions demons crawling into your bag if you place it on the floor Why then does he not shake out Itzy's bag at the train station It would have prevented the whole mess Second the only way to open the gates of Hell involves having an angel's feather Itzy steals back the feather so how is Divah still able to open the gates in the hotel And last regarding those gates We are told that if they open it is the end of the world Well they open and nothing happens Nothing comes out Plus they don't shut them again just fill the basement with water What How is that supposed to stop demons So that's my two centsI did love the story telling and the characters are so rich and bold I give this one 45 stars and if you like dark humorous horror you really should read it
