Russian Reviews Fateful Love

Fateful Love
By Mary Sanglante

Based on Lost on Earth by Lily Alex
(280 pages)
ISBN: 9781604414899

Reviewed by Aglaia, Moscow, Russia

This romantic thriller is easy to read. I was not able to put the book
down until I finished it. The plot flows so smoothly, that changing
chapters is almost unnoticeable, the intrigue absorbs you completely
and the new heroes are introduced in a very comfortable way.

I especially liked to track how Martha's love grows. It's impossible
to hold back sympathy for Robert Noirson, despite the fact that he's
an antihero. All he does to impress Martha involuntarily affects the
reader as well. However, you can feel the increasing tension, and it's
obvious for Martha that it won't be a happily-ever-after marriage.

When Brandy appears, at first I felt pity for her, but when she starts
her revenge, only because of her jealousy, the sympathy for her fades
and you just want to say: "Get out of here!"

During the whole story, the author shows unstopping conflict between
Goodness and Evil, and often humans act much worse than demons. The
author shows that people have freedom of choice, and can't always use
it properly.

In the mean time, there is so much evil in this world that this book
makes us think how we act when contacting with others, how we all are
connected and how we affect each other. It's sad that Martha's love
overpowered her faith, but it's understandable and you don't feel
anger, but pity for her.

A few times the author shows the Power of God and the blessing of
forgiveness and repentance. I like the allegories and metaphors that
the author uses during the narration.

The scene that impressed me the most - when Martha was unable to go back.

The illustrations are also great! They illustrate the events without
strife with your own imagination
