Lali must face her fears and begin the journey to The Lill, a treacherous journey built around lies. In seeking for the truth about her past and future, she must leave Krei, the young man who loves her more than his life, and learn to trust Theon, a stranger who claims he is the only one who can help her.
I discovered this via Instagram and downloaded it onto my Kindle. It is not something I would normally pick up, but speaking to the lovely author Adi Mandal (@laliofthelill) on Instagram persuaded me to give it a go.
The story focuses on a 16-year-old girl named Lali who has a fairly ordinary life in London, living with her adopted mother Stella, and working in a pizza parlour. That is, until she begins experiencing terrifying visions of another world where creatures are trying to kill her.
When a handsome stranger named Theon, whom Lali recognises from one of her visions, appears in the pizza parlour, Lali begins to wonder whether her visions are more real that she thought. As she gets to know Theon the mystery unravels and Lali is plunged into a world she never knew existed; she discovers her real identity and comes to realise that she’s not as normal as she believed.
The book ends on a cliffhanger, with Lali and Theon still in danger and just beginning their journey to the Lill. The second book is coming out soon and picks up the story where it left off. Considering the book was self-published I think Adi did a very good job, although there are some places where the text/dialogue doesn’t flow perfectly, it doesn’t detract too much from the overall story line. If you’re looking a new fantasy read on your Kindle/E-reader maybe give this a go 🙂
