Vellcome, er, Welcome to my dusty little blog. It’s not much, but I call it home.
Today I am happy to host a new book by Lillith Black. I don’t know about you, but I’m dying to have a look…
First up, this is what you would be reading if you were to pick the book up and turn it over. (Mind the spiders–my housekeepers are a little, shall we say, skittish about being in this room.)
Elizabeth’s family dies in a house fire and she has no one to blame but herself… …after all, she sleepwalked out and was the only one to survive.
Elizabeth Hawthorne, barely sixteen years old, loses the only family she has ever known and now life throws her on the other side of the country to live with a relative she never knew existed. Her only goal is survive this new life, but she is presented with centuries-old family secrets that reveal themselves in the most unpredictable ways. Her sleepwalking trait turns out to be much more than that and people she meets along the way affect her very nature as she affects theirs.
As personal transformations consume Elizabeth’s days and sleepwalking nightmares invade her nights, a bigger, more sinister entity makes its appearance and now Elizabeth’s life and the lives of those around her are in danger. She will have to fully embrace her new self and form difficult partnerships to fight the demons that are approaching and those that are within.
Now, that sounds right up my dark alley!
We’ve gone this far–now let’s have a look at a snippet from inside the book itself:
She bent her head down, trying to be invisible, and began to move towards the front doors. She was at the top of the stairs, silently congratulating herself on sneaking in, when, out of nowhere, somebody’s wide chest appeared in her way.
Surprised and unable to get out of the way, Elizabeth flailed her arms to keep her balance, but began to fall backwards onto the stairs below. She gasped. Next thing she knew, the strong arms that belonged to the wide-chested body grabbed her and placed her safely back at the top of the stairs.
“Watch where you are–” she heard, and then suddenly, the tone softened to a mumble. “Sorry, gotta go.”
Before she could say a word, her accidental acquaintance disappeared inside the school. It happened so fast that all she could remember were his piercing black eyes.
Oooohhh—well alrighty then. Friend or foe? Demon or darling? I’m sure those questions will be answered in the book.
I managed to nab the author before she could get away (never mind how), and I was able to get some info about her.

Go on ahead without me–I have to round up my pets and put out the candles here. I’ll catch up to you later. Best not to look back as you leave…
