    Let me start this review by saying that Eli Constant is an amazing author. I knew it the moment I started reading her novella DRAG.N, a riveting read. I’ve so been looking forward to reading Mastic even since I found out about its release; there were lots of reasons for it: the title itself made me curious, the covers of Mastic that I saw on facebook (all of them really cool), and the blurb which sounded like I was going to enjoy this book (which I did).I didn’t expect to be pulled so strongly into the book from the first pages. I’m just not easy to impress. But the opening scene was really great, and I wanted more.Eli Constant is great at details that bring her characters to life. Renee, Mark, Kat, Vicky and Sara, they are like real people to me. Their relationships are true-to-life, never contrived or far-fetched. And you get to know these characters so well that you don’t want to stop reading about them. The paranormal element works really well together with the legend the author used for this book. I enjoyed reading about the supernatural beings I’d never heard of before [no spoilers here, it’s better to read about them in the book than in a review].Once I started reading Mastic, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Well done to the author! Now I really look forward to reading Dead Trees.

    Mastic by Eli Constant is as good a paranormal murder mystery as I have read in a long time. It is the story of a woman who's past has come back to haunt her in very unexpected and dangerous ways. The best part of a past and the worst part collide in a way one never could have expected. As she sets out to protect the best part she discovers along the way parts of her self she has long ignored. Mastic is the story of how far a parent will go to protect a child, the sacrifices we are willing to make to protect the ones we love and what it really means to be a parent.Eli Constant is a new up an coming author with a gritty realism in her writing style that is missing in so many story tellers repertoires today. I enjoyed this book very much and look forward to reading whatever she comes out with next. Check out her other book Dead Trees. It is a thrill ride a minute built into a dystopian society on the path to destruction or to restructure which ever gets there first.

    Mastic by Eli ConstantI received this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review by the “Lovers of Paranormal” Group on Goodreads.comThis is a fast paced and riveting Murder Mystery with a paranormal twist. The story begins with the murder of the celebrity model, Harmony Phelps. The body is found in a small town and detective Mark Faulkner and medical examiner Renee Forst are assigned the case. And so the story unfolds into a tangled web of suspense, intrigue and seduction, unlike anything I have ever read before. This is a daring and sensual read that will have you turning pages until the very end. This book has a well thought out plot. The writing is rich and the story is well crafted and very well researched. I could not put this book down and I am eagerly awaiting the next book in this series. Well done Eli Constant on a brilliant and beautifully written book. I will definitely be looking out for more of this talented author’s work.

    Loved loved loved this beautiful story - has everything I enjoy in a book yet very different with its unique style. Each page is to be savoured and trust me when I say I took my time in reading it as I really didn't want my journey to end. I found myself looking for opportunities to devour my mind into Mastic. This seductive, fantasy tale & thriller - with a touch of passion left me feeling inspired & thoroughly entertained. The connection I felt with the characters left a tingle down my spine - it's like I could see & feel everything they lived through. Yet again Eli C has left me wanting more.

    I received this book from the Author and Lovers of Paranormal (LOP) at Goodreads.com for an honest review. It boggles my mind how a book can still surprises me and yes, once again this has happened. The story and plot was one I was not expecting. I was instantly drawn into the world of Kat and Renee, through their vivid dreams at the start to the very end where life comes full circle, death meeting rebirth. I wasn’t too sure where the story was going with the death of Harmony Phelps to the dream world of mother and daughter, but through the amazing writing of the author every detail of the imagination is played out in front of you. Close your eyes and you too become part of Kats, Renee’s, Alexanders, Mikolas and Kris’s dreams – feeling as they felt and all agonising over the inevitable. The bond they share through this simple thread of contact, an occurrence we take for granted and meaningless that became their lifeline. The characters were so real and believable. I fell in love with the heroics of Mark and his selflessness throughout his life. It was amazing to finally see his happiness being fulfilled with Renee and Kat. Well done for an interesting story, with so many worlds colliding I can see every reading regardless of what they like to read falling instantly in love with this book.

    Mastic is a daring and sensual read that you will devour up in one sitting. It plays with several genres whilst maintaining its paranormal and romantic elements, yet it oozes an edge of horror and thriller. Eli has been quite clever how she has developed the plot to suit such a wide range of tastes.The charcters had such a believable and honest relationship, it's impossible NOT to feel something towards them. That goes for the good AND the bad.Because there are bad characters, evil but with something in them that you simply can't hate them for being bad. Mostly I felt empathy and understanding, and yeah, okay, I got a little pissy at them too at times, but hey, here's a mother and daughter quite happily going on with their lives. Sure they have a complicated yet understandably mature relationship with eachother, but they are happy none-the-less, then along comes Mikolas and turns their world upside down and sends them down a long deep tunnel into another word that they never knew existed.It's a beautiful story, which chilled me and yet let me soak up its sensuality with every character.As usual, Eli Constant did not fail in writing a story which is both fascinating and realistic whilst still holding its paranormal charm.Wel done, high stars!

    Vivid and uniqueMastic is amazingly descriptive. I could see it, smell it and even taste it. It has a little bit of romance, a nice dash of paranormal, and a sprinkling of fantasy all mixed up with a heaping dose of mystery. Along with a bunch of twists and turns, you aren't really sure where things will end up until the very end. Pamela Lorence does a wonderful job with the narration of Mastic. You can easily tell who is talking at the time, and she reads clearly with a good pace. Audio book provided for an honest review.

    ** I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Lovers of Paranormal, LoP **I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story line was quite a ride. This book has adventure, suspense and some paranormal. The plot was easy to follow and at times I wasn't sure how it would end. I liked that. The characters are great. They all added to the overall feel of this story. A good add to your tbr list.

    Tears of Chios, sounds made up, but look it up. They are actual fact, and a lot of things that you think may be made up are actual research that Eli Constant has woven into a tangled web of intrigue to create a story like none I have read yet. Ms. Constant has brought not only her characters to life, but she has brought each of her places to life as well. When I can picture each of the settings her characters are walking through, so I can walk through them with her characters, feel with her characters and wonder what the heck is going to happen next, that is where a story gets under my skin. I felt this, I felt frustration, anger, confusion, sometimes all at once. I could not put this book down. This is not just a typical mystery, nor is it a paranormal book. There is a little bit of everything in this book that will attract most everyone. I will not put spoilers in the review, so I will just say that I was wondering by the end how it was going to end. Would there be a human sacrifice, or would the day be saved? You are just going to have to read it and find out.

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Lovers of the Paranormal. I really enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down. It was a wonderful mix of thriller and supernatural. I enjoyed the characters and found it extremely gripping. The only negative point was regarding the inclusion of Chris and Alexander, I think I would have preferred the main characters to discover the plot by themselves, but even that little issue did not spoil this book. It drew me in from the start and I devoured it in three days. Highly recommend, would definitely read anything else by this author.

    I love this book and had it read in a few days, it leaves you wanting to just keep turning the pages to see what’s going to happen next. The back story of Mastic and the legend it’s based on is so intriguing and the writing style keeps propelling you forward. I highly recommend this to anyone in need of a mental escape!

    *This Book Was Given To Me By The Author In Exchange For An Honest Review*Mastic is a very well written mystery novel with an extraordinary paranormal element that I have never read anything like before. The story twists and turns taking what starts as what would appear to be a normal murder mystery and ending up on a fantastical dark journey through magic, power and desire.A captivating read that will appeal to fans of mystery and the supernatural with a new question forming as answers appear and yet somehow wrapping up in a way that leaves you nodding your head in agreement. This is the first book I have read by this author but it will definitely not be the last! An easy 5 out of 5 stars from me!V""V***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.For more information regarding our reviews please visit our Fansite: www.facebook.com/NerdGirl.ng ***

    Mastic encompasses several genres. While sitting strongly in the realm of dark fantasy, it exudes paranormal and romance. The mood and tone of the novel are cleverly crafted.The newly designed cover art reflects the romantic element of the novel, while maintaining its mystery.The characters are three-dimensional, and I immediately cared about them. I loved to love some and loved to hate others. It's so easy to get to know each of the characters, and their relationships with each other are believable.Not only are the characters three-dimensional, so are the background and surroundings. Each is brought to life, creating a beautiful backdrop for the characters.This novel crosses genres so skillfully, no matter what your favorite genre, Mastic will be an instant favorite.This review originally posted to Twisted Book Junkie.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review LOP.I gave this book 3 & a half stars because it had some good elements but it fell flat in so many areas for me. Harmony's murder in the beginning and the disappearance of her body was intriguing but when it jumps to the assistant medical examiner's daughter Kat's dreams it didn't tie together. I understood the plot but it seemed to be a jumbled read. Skipping from subject to subject and getting off the plot often. Lots of the book honestly made no sense and left me feeling confused. All of the drama was over the mastic spice but the powers of the spice were never fully explained. There were so many things in the storyline happening with no explanation or reason for the things to happen.
