"This book really took me on for a ride. There was not a single dull moment and I will be waiting eagerly for the next one in this series!" - Poulami, Daydreaming Books   


 "Captivating and interesting from page one. I initially believed it to be a mix of Rapunzel and Cinderella and then it spiraled into something so much more. There is just so much happening in this book- deception, love, lies, action... it left my head spinning."  Erin Grossman, Goodreads


"Serenade: The Nightmusic Trilogy Book 1 by Heather McKenzie has a slow burn of a start, but the backstory is important - especially her relationships from "home." The writing is well executed, particularly the descriptive elements, something in which I feel the author truly excels. "When she turned to face me, her eyes were wide and her cheeks were flushed--all my breath left my lungs. We were surrounded by incredible beauty, yet she completely outshone it with her own." The scenes and action following the kidnapping are fantastic, with enough unexpected twists to keep the pages turning. The book does end on something of a cliff-hanger, but readers will be happy to know they don't have to wait for the next installment as Nocturne, book two in the trilogy, has already been released. I'd highly recommend this book to lovers of good, traditional YA with a unique plot." Readers Favorite, FIVE STAR AWARD


"It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a romantic suspense this much ... I'll be stalking library shelves indefinitely for this author - she had me hooked after the first page. Lifetime fan. SO good." Julie Brandenburg, Little Miss Bookmark 

"The suspense is nail-biting..." In'Dtale Magazine 

"Female heroine. Check. Adventure with high stakes. Check. Strong and powerful story with intrigue and secrets. Check. I loved nearly everything about this story. It had everything I hope for and love in a YA book. The writing style and powerful way the author can showcase emotions makes me eager to read anything McKenzie will write next- fiction, nonfiction, picture books, or anything." - Rachel Barnard, Author
