Hear Me Cry wasted no time making an impression in the literary world in the few short months since its release. A fantasy novella which retells the Irish myth of the Banshee, Hear Me Cry was recently crowned the winner of the “Book of the Year Award” at the Dublin Writers’ Conference 2018.
What a huge achievement for a two month old novella!
This is the third release of author Amanda J. Evans, who also penned the books Finding Forever and Save Her Soul.
The book cover for this novella had me running for the bookstore – such is the beauty of this book. The Banshee is an fantastic niche for fantasy that tends not to take centre stage, and I can’t wait to give this one a read!
“A forbidden love, a torturous curse, and a loss so great it destroys.
Isla is a warrior of the Summer Court. She has one mission, to keep humans out of Faery. Kill them on sight. When she inadvertently saves one and triggers the mating bond, her life changes forever.
On the run and hiding from her own people, Isla must protect the one thing she’s been trained to hate. With magic now flowing through her veins, she must learn to control it if she is to survive.
The faery are coming. Her once commander, leads the charge. Will Isla be ready in time? Can she harness her magic and resist the darkness?
As both sides clash, Isla learns that her kind possesses a cruelty she could never have imagined. Her loyalty will be tested. To save the one she loves, she must give up everything, including her life as she knows it.
Find out how the banshee came to exist in this dark fantasy retelling of an old Irish myth.”

“This was such a wonderfully written and beautifully told story. I have never heard the story of the Banshee told with such love and thoughtfulness.” – 5* Amazon Review
“This novella is about a power of love and the miracle of love. It’s a story as old as time, a story of a girl who fell in love! I gotta warn ya I had to put it down for a few minutes because I got so emotional!” – 5* Amazon Review
“This is my first book from Amanda Evans. Though this isn’t a genre I would venture out and read, it really captured me. She can keep you wanting more and delivering!! I have read a couple books on Irish folklore, but nothing on the banshee. Evans hit my heart and I will definitely be reading from her again.” – 5* Amazon Review
