Summary: Beyond the Black Door is a young adult dark fantasy about unlocking the mysteries around and within us—no matter the cost …

Everyone has a soul. Some are beautiful gardens, others are frightening dungeons. Soulwalkers—like Kamai and her mother—can journey into other people’s souls while they sleep.

But no matter where Kamai visits, she sees the black door. It follows her into every soul, and her mother has told her to never, ever open it.

When Kamai touches the door, it is warm and beating, like it has a pulse. When she puts her ear to it, she hears her own name whispered from the other side. And when tragedy strikes, Kamai does the unthinkable: she opens the door.

A.M. Strickland’s imaginative dark fantasy features court intrigue and romance, a main character coming to terms with her asexuality, and twists and turns as a seductive mystery unfolds that endangers not just Kamai’s own soul, but the entire kingdom …

They say don’t judge a book by its cover… For me it was the cover that drew me in. For being a newer author, I thought she did an amazing job. From the first page I was hooked. The characters are all a big part of the book, without all the added fluff of just extra people for the sake of it. Dark fantasy, mystery and romance put together in a flawless story. We all have a darkness inside of us that we must embrace or destroy, what would you do? I’m a fan of Stickland’s after reading this book. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

A.M. Strickland was a bibliophile who wanted to be an author before she knew what either of those words meant. She shares a home base in Alaska with her spouse, her pugs, and her piles and piles of books. She loves traveling, dancing, tattoos, and every shade of teal in existence, but especially the darker ones. Her books include In the Ravenous Dark, Beyond the Black Door, and Shadow Run. She uses both she/her and they/them pronouns.
