Heart of a Warrior Angel: From Darkness to Light is a work of fiction in the thriller and supernatural fantasy sub-genres and was penned by author Lali A. Love. Recommended for mature audiences due to some sensitive subject matter such as childhood abuse, this well-told short novel takes us on an emotional journey as its many paranormal oddities unfold. Coming from a dark and traumatic background, our heroine Lilac goes on a journey of self-exploration to understand where the evil energies in her bloodline have come from, and how to vanquish them and move forward into the light. The quest is far from easy, spanning several generations in this excellent and emotive family saga.

Author Lali A. Love delivers a superb tale that encompasses a great many different lessons about the human spirit and the divine power to overcome darkness, and as such it will read as both realistic and inspirational despite its supernatural themes and settings. Lilac makes for a highly relatable central character, and I really enjoyed Love’s narrative style and how it brings us closer to the protagonist's most intimate thoughts and feelings. I felt that the subject matter of abuse was sensitively handled and given an empowering storyline as the plot moved forward, which grounds the piece in realism but also pushes towards hope rather than victimhood. Overall, I would definitely recommend Heart of a Warrior Angel: From Darkness to Light to readers who enjoy emotive family sagas but also want real inspiring messages which underpin the emotional adventures they read about.

WOW. WOW a million times. What a sensational, superb book.

HEART OF A WARRIOR ANGEL: FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT by Lali A. Love is a metaphysical journey through the elevation of consciousness to overcome tragedy. The author cleverly combines scientific and spiritual theory, citing visionaries from a range of fields, to illuminate a beautiful, emotional story of recovery and awakening.

Lilac is our main character, our warrior angel. She and her sisters are born to the young Mira and the abusive Dragan. It is heartbreaking to read about Dragan’s vile cruelty. Your soul cries out as you read about the torture his family endures at his hands. Dragan robs his daughter, Lilac, of her childhood and adolescence. She yearns to make peace with these horrors and burst free from the invisible cage of her depression, anxiety, and emotional paralysis.

Lilac confronts her agonizing memories to find peace through meditation and transmutation. She lets go of the past to move into the future and accepts the truth about her traumas. Conditioned to fear, resigned to Dragan’s enslavement and threats, she makes many sacrifices to save her mother and sisters from her father’s demonic wrath. However, despite all her anguish, Lilac still has a huge heart and loves so powerfully. Her keen intuition, her instinctual gift, for reading energy heals and protects those around her. She is a warrior, filled with courage, a character all readers will adore.

The author does a spectacular job of showing the darkness and then washing it with light. Written with poetry and melody, Lali A. Love paints a story of strength, power, love, and self-healing. Follow your heart and listen to your gut, even if your head disagrees. The book shines with an aura of mysticism, divination, and ancient wisdom. 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

Lali A Love has written a book that oozes magic on every page. The reader empathizes with Lilac very much. Despite what Lilac endures, I think this book is ultimately an uplifting tale. People often need to go through adversity to truly know their strength and ability to shine, and the women in this book are no different. The characters' struggles are real and vividly conveyed in this novel. I recommend for anyone with a mystical side.

The story starts out with the gut-wrenching abuse a family of females endure from the hands of a tormented husband/father. It’s hard to fathom at times - the level of darkness portrayed. A daughter, Lilac, is somehow able to hold on to a sliver of light deep within her being that enables her and her family to go on an extraordinary transformational journey and overcome the dark forces that surrounded them for so many years. This book is a master class into frequencies and energy, and how they operate in our lives. The main vibe is the love, light and female empowerment that emanate from the Author. If you like drama and intrigue this book is for you! Read it now.

Love pens a magnificent story in Heart of a Warrior Angel: From Darkness to Light. I haven't read anything from this author before, and I really enjoyed this story. The characters were raw and very intense, living in both dark and light of triumphs, pain and tragedy. This author brings the stories to life. There was something about this story that made me read it from beginning to end, stopping only to take a breath and reflect on what I've read.

This author's characters develop and interacts well with the other characters. The scenes and stories within the story were raw and well described, as well as heartbreaking and heart-fulfilling. I have fast become a big fan of Lali A. Love. It's a very compelling story that pulls the reader in from the beginning.

Lilac was definitely an unforgettable character. "Lilac made the decision to let go of anything that no longer served her. She was determined to release any remaining pent-up negative energy surrounding her, even though she knew the darkness would never fully dissipate." Heart of a Warrior Angel: From Darkness to Light is a definite highly recommended read by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews. I look forward to reading more by this author.

‘Heart of a Warrior Angel,’ is a beautifully written story about discovering one soul’s purpose in a world that relishes oppression, greed, and jealousy. Readers accompany Lilac Noble as she journeys back into her family’s past to face the demons that hold her father’s bloodline hostage in a karmic contract.

‘Heart of a Warrior Angel,’ is a new age fictional novel that teaches you about self-healing, self- discovery and self-love: “the purest form of love is the one that comes from within.”

Jewel Hart

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.
