I took a chance on reaching out to this Londoner and won! As per my usual saunter through the titles up for giveaway on Goodreads, I came across a particular book cover. You know I'm a Cover-Lover, taking to them like candy, but when I saw this one, it wasn't the HD imagery that captured me. It was the mystery. I entered the giveaway for Lilif.
So I took another chance and reached out to the author. I mentioned my love for horror and how I thought the book would make an impact with my readers. And he took a chance on me and sent it. I was thrilled beyond belief once the book was actually in my hand, with the Royal Mail tag!
The story has three protagonists, but they have no idea they are against a horde of opposers. One is next to dirt-poor but carries great values; one came from a simple life only to be submerged into money and power. The last was born of The Day of Treats, to become a power-hungry mogul, bent on one, true goal. Valda, Alex, and Patrick are on an unknown mission and everyone will not survive. The good guys never do, right?
Valda, is difficult to view as a heroine. She thyrst's (yes, I did use that spelling!) for money, power and a baby. All her clout couldn't give her the one thing she wanted more than anything else in the world. She and Alex, her boyfriend, sought out the best of fertility specialists, but it just didn't happen. Then she received a letter from someone by the name of Lilif. Lilif offered Valda the world: a baby, at a cost....
Patrick was a Jamaican who only wanted to make enough money to send home to his family and live a quiet life. A good man with a big heart, turned driver for Valda and Alex, who later became an associate to Valda and Alex- almost a friend. Because he was on the outisde, he was able to see things, the couple were blind to. But there are some things even the closest of friends can't prevent, especially from them...
I can not describe the bad guy(s) without telling the story. The plot is so huge, it's like Pinky and the Brain: "Try to take over the world!" The way it happens, the way it works takes you, the reader, on a ride of confusion and pain, down into deep-rooted fear and insanity. R. P. Falconer's prose allows you to see through the eyes of the characters- all of them, as they're driven to madness. A few incidents were expected but the story was original enough to overlook such trivialities. The story was strong and made for a true, supernatural thriller that you won't want to put down.
Check out Lilif, by Harlesden's R. P. Falconer. He's got two other books you may find interesting as well. Click on his highlighted name, above, and surf his site and peep the book's trailer below! I'm on to my next novel!📚
