Add to Goodreads
Of the Lilin by Paulette Hampton is a beautifully written novel. This author knows how to draw a reader into the story. Her description are fantastic and the flow and pace were great.
There is a lot of description, though. I will say it did slow the read at times. But honestly, that didn’t sway me because this is clearly a talented author.
I really loved the character building. Sage is a great character to follow. She’s been through a lot and she’s relatable. I think she adds so much to the beautiful writing of this story.
Loved this. Check it out.
I received a free copy of this book from R&R Book Tours to review honestly on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
I didn’t deserve happiness. Those joys shouldn’t exist without my family’s and friend’s presence. I should have to endure more suffering for what I had done. I no longer pressed my memory to find out what I was guilty of. It was a blur, a blip in my mind, but it was there. I felt it, and I needed to suffer for it.
Sage, when her dark side appears, describing her feeding: From his wanting mouth, I began to inhale his essence, his spirit. It was exhilarating and decadent. I was filled with what was flowing and still, energetic and peaceful, awe-inspiring and banal. The dichotomies fit like two puzzle pieces. There was not one without the other. This was the only moment that existed. It was completeness.
Paulette is an indie author who holds a Master of Arts in reading education. Her writing inspiration stems from watching fantasy and paranormal movies, as well as her real-life experiences with mental health issues. She hopes her readers will find humor in her stories, become curious about seeking peace through the present moment, and consider reaching out for help if they are struggling with their own issues.
Paulette loves drawing, watching a good thriller, kayaking, and eating chocolate…lots of it. She and her husband live in North Carolina with their two cats, Linda Hamm and Bree. Of the Lilin is the first book in her new upper YA paranormal series, The Sage Chronicles.
