Heart of a Warrior Angel: From Darkness to Light by Lali A Love
Lali A. Love provides a supernatural thriller of metaphysical and visionary fantasy with her own revolutionary philosophy and unique narrative skills to produce this emotionally invoking, heart-wrenching and gripping tale of a family’s rise from poverty, oppression and abuse.
Lilac Noble must face the traumatic experiences of her childhood before she can conquer the dark entities that have wreaked havoc on her family. On this epic journey, Lilac undergoes the destructive process of spiritual enlightenment in order to lift the veil of darkness and shame that has obscured her youth. As Lilac unlocks painful memories of abuse, suppressed in her subconscious from years of fear-based conditioning, she uncovers menacing secrets feeding the evil within her generational bloodline. In an attempt to vanquish the sinister energies, Lilac finds the courage to discover her inner truth, vulnerability, and authenticity, as she awakens her divine light and overcomes her debilitating fears of the past. Lilac’s unconditional love for her family guides her through her process of healing and transformation, fueling her instinct for survival and her burning desire to illuminate the world.
Spanning two continents and three generations, this inspirational novel portrays the best and worst of humanity and shows how the “tiniest spark of light can overcome the darkness of any magnitude,” through forgiveness, compassion, and the most powerful force in the universe – Love.
Heart of a Warrior Angel by Lali A. Love is a haunting, emotionally-gripping story and I’ve not cried so much since reading Flowers in the Attic. This is a tale on two dimensions: the first being the memoir of Lilac Nobel, and the second an introduction into enlightenment – the power by which humans understand the universe and improve their own condition.
I pondered whilst reading on why the author would choose to write a narrative with an absence of dialogue, after all most would contend that only short stories can carry off the lack of speech without boring the reader. I feel now that I have finished and had time to reflect, that speech would have made it harrowing by making the people within the story even more real. I was heartbroken by the first half of Lilac’s life and was only able to continue reading because of Lali A. Love’s clever and sensitive story-telling style, and I can assure you I was far from bored. I was in fact gripped, fascinated, moved and unable to put the book down.
Although, we travel this novel through the eyes of Lilac, it isn’t only about her, but all the people she loves, especially her sisters. The need to protect her mother and sisters from her father, even when that meant pain for herself, was so touching. Love is the main message (I feel) behind this story, sacrificial love that puts others before self, but also the understanding of how important it is to love one’s self.
Lali A. Love has artfully crafted a mystical story that starts in Georgia in the 1950s and ends in Canada in the present day. There is violence in this story, but it is neither graphic nor glorified, it is simply stated as what happened. I think the title is very apt and also the lovely book cover clearly shows what type of book this is and will instantly attract people who love stories about the paranormal.
Lastly, Heart of a Warrior Angel is a must read for anyone with a traumatic past. I am convinced that knowing we are not alone in our sorrows, understanding that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that we only have to move towards it, and learning about our own inner strength are all things that will inspire us to love without limits and to forgive when it hurts. Heart of a Warrior by Lali A. Love is a moving, thought-provoking read, and comes highly recommended by Chick Lit Café Book Reviews.
