It’s my stop on the Love Books Group Blog Tour of Heart of a Warrior Angel by Lali A. Love
When Kelly over a Love Books Group Tours dropped this beauty in my inbox I didn’t even stop to read the synopsis. I was taken by the cover/title and hastily replied with a “sign me up” .
Yes, I’m a sucker for a gorgeous cover, but who isn’t? I would be amazed if any avid reader turned around and told me that they had never purchased a book purely based on the cover at some time or another. If they did, I would be the one patiently waiting for any hint of their nose growing, or scorching flames emanating from the lower regions. That’s right, I simply wouldn’t believe them and I wouldn’t be ashamed to tell them either.
Covers are the delicious wrapping that entice you in, they are what catch your eye when browsing the abundance of books in the bookshop, they are the reason you pick up that book before reading the synopsis, even dismissing the synopsis completely, as this was the case for me!
So there you have it and I’m in no way ashamed to admit it. I was caught, hook line and sinker! Overly excited about having the opportunity to review a new fantasy. Oh how wrong was I! Whilst I will often be heard saying, heed my warning lovelies and always read the synopsis……… it will more often than not fall on deaf ears. We have all been caught out haven’t we? Come on, admit it and say …….. “Yes Allison.”
This wasn’t the first time for me and rest assured it wont be the last.
Needless to say, I will not be filing this under Fantasy and as fortune would have it, I really wasn’t disappointed. This was a book truly worthy of the deceiving cover. You are forgiven and the Bullet was dodged! Maybe next time, I wont be so lucky.
Now we have established that the cover is just fabulous and realised my inherent problem of buying books purely based on their covers, let’s move on to the book itself.
Lilac our main protagonist is on a journey to overcome her past. This is not a story that glosses over hardship, traumatic events, abuse and loss. This ripped my heart from my chest, stomped on it and whilst being placed back, punched me in the stomach until I felt sick, for good measure. So be warned, if you are predisposed to any of the above this is not for you.
That being said, you need to be exposed to the harsh realities of her youth in order to appreciate how she evolves and embraces her metaphysical being in order to overcome and accept that which had happened not only to herself but also her loved ones.
Now, I am going to be honest with you, again, because that is what I’m about. I have never dabbled, read or discussed the metaphysical before, having no understanding of the concept. Fortunately, Lali’s passion and knowledge for this clearly shone throughout. It was insightful and interesting to say the least. Whilst I wont deny that in places it was a bit too heavy spiritually for me personally, it becomes clear that this is essential to the story.
This was truly a heart wrenching and gripping read as described in the synopsis. Speckled with inspirational quotes and a mere hint of the paranormal. You will find yourself shocked, horrified, shouting not only in anger and frustration but also for joy.
This was a pure raw emotional read!
