Product description

Product Description

Exploring a remote island can sometimes get you into trouble. Especially when you stumble upon a cave and awaken two demons.
Rumors and superstition.
That’s what Emma thinks about local gossip concerning her grandmother’s “cursed” private island. Emma journeys to the island to ready it for sale. While out exploring, she unearths a hidden cave which holds answers to the island’s dark past.
There may be more to the rumors than she thought.

Awesome book, very good story. I really enjoyed reading it, I thought it was finished when Emma left the island. To keep it going for her to return to the island was great , looking forward to reading more from you. Thank you, Debbie

5.0 out of 5 stars Helluva Scary Read Oct. 5 2015
By Cheap and Lazy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A bit grittier than her previous books, still not too gory (no swearing or sex either). More mainstream horror than psychological paranormal (like her last book, Voices). It’s the psychological aspect that really hits home. Clarissa Johal gets this. I find I enjoy each book more than the last. They’re all good, all interesting, all different. She knows how to build the tension, characters, and plot until you feel as tortured as her poor heroines. This one, though, gave me nightmares! I was careful where I stopped reading after that and made sure to do a little web surfing before turning out the light. The writing is superb. I don’t do spoilers (or even care to describe stories—I leave that to others), but will tell you Emma is terribly brave (too brave, I kept wanting to yell into the book “don’t!”—I know you know what I mean). Yet it’s totally believable for her character. The romantic element, Nathaniel, adds to the story without taking over (another thing this author does well). Same thing with her friend, Paisley. I may never look at the ocean or small islands the same again. Oh, and I think I need a bell, or two. Yes, this is one of those books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creep Factor Nine June 1 2016
By Chris J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This one is a slow starter, though I give it a lot of points for suspense and general creepiness. The entire first half of the book (or more) is spent in slowly and deliberately working up to the main part of the conflict. I kept picturing the several chapters after Emma arrived on the island as a very creepy horror movie - one where you ultimately question the idiocy of the main character for not catching on to the fact that there is something terribly wrong. I was torn between 3 stars and 4, I would probably give this one 3 1/2 as I loved the suspense and the dark, creepy build-up. Even the reveal of the antagonist was somewhat interesting and enticingly mysterious. However there are several convenient phenomenon which are never really explained and an epilogue which seems a bit conciliatory. Overall, though, worth the read, if you're into suspenseful horror. Which I am.
4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and simple May 20 2016
By Kathryn A St John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Unlike most well known horror novels out there, The Island is relatively short and simple. To be fair there are times when it's too simple and things happen too easily, but I much prefer that to 400 pages of complicated background and needless details that, for me, bog down the story till I've completely lost interest.

The Island was original and entertaining and often got my pulse pounding for various reasons. I don't need 300 pages of background and thought processes to feel connected to a character. I felt 100% connected to Emma from the first chapter and hated putting the book down because I wanted to know what would happen to her and how she would deal with whatever situation presented itself.

I will admit that the ending was a bit easy. Honestly, another 50-100 pages for...dealing with the island's issues...probably would've been better but at least I had no time to get bored. I don't want to give anything away. ;)

It's a fun read unless you like overly drawn-out stories that make you read till your eyes fall out. Then you'd probably be disappointed with it.

I liked it a lot and am so going to be looking for this author's other books.

5.0 out of 5 stars So totally into the story! Sept. 15 2015
By Tammy Massey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really could not put this book down. I read the entire book in one evening. I work very hard all day in my own business and reading is my relaxation before sleep. I was so into this book, I could not stop reading even for sleep. This book held my attention, my curiosity, and was so riveting. I could not wait to go out and get another one of this author's books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Johal weaves a ripping good tale with interesting Sept. 22 2015
By Laura Demko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"The Island" by Clarissa Johal is a paranormal suspense novel on steroids. Just as it appears on the book's cover art, the island looms large, dark and foreboding in the lives of those who live on or visit it. It is a place filled with danger and exerts a powerful force on all who enter.

Ms. Johal weaves a ripping good tale with interesting, believable characters, regional folklore, intense drama, light romance, frightening paranormal activity and incredible suspense. The novel is well written and the element of suspense definitely makes for a page turner.
