Alice and her mother have been on the road ever since.
“UnHoly Pursuit The Devil on My Trail blurb.”Ana BuFaye definitely believes in things that go bump in the night. Unholy Pursuit:The Devil on My Trail is futuristic, paranormal, romance story that also contains elements of sci-fi, horror, common sense, and philosophy. It’s a novel about the eternal battle of good versus evil set 500 years in the future that features saints, immortals, demons, and spirits. A recently single mother with a supernatural past suddenly finds her life in turmoil. Energy and a fighting attitude are her two best friends as she is always on the road fleeing malevolent forces coming after her. She gives as good as she gets and always manages to stay one step ahead of her pursuers due to her inner qualities and otherworldly assistance. She is more than just a tough, strong woman fighting to save her family: she is a warrior called to battle to fight for the greater good.
Unbeknownst to her, the one in whose arms she sought love and comfort in is actually an immortal, who according to ancient texts and tomes, myths, and legends is far worse than Lucifer. Her new love is the former king of hell, Azazel.
I don’t want to accuse anyone of using my idea for the foundation of their book but these two books are eerily similar. But what else can I think? I am not talking about one word or a few words used. I am talking nearly the entire concept. Even down to the part where the mother and daughter are always on the open road and their barely escaping the malicious forces after them.
The ages of the daughters are different and my book isn’t a fairy tale. The demons and etc are out to kill not take you through “Wonderland.”
Both books does mention the daughters at age six. But Bea had better sense than to get in the car with a stranger at age six.
Both main characters’ daughters are kidnapped
Both Bea and the main character’s grandmothers are mentioned early on in the story.
Both mothers and daughters are plague by evil supernatural things
Both rarely visit their families because they don’t want the evil following them to their families.
Both mothers receive a legal notices.
Both girls enter a spirit world.
Both mothers have failed marriages.
I haven’t read the rest of the book so I don’t know how many more similarities there are. But something tells me a lot more.
From what I read in the books; Ana is a more serious person and take their strife differently than Althea.
