She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    The story starts out hi-tech blending into futuristic everyday life. A hi-speed car chase built up the tense. I’m glad you didn’t turn it into a full-throttle futuristic story. That would killed this type of story. It’s not about robots and technology. It’s about people and the things they encounter and sometimes have to do in order to survive. You showed real people doing everyday things to survival reasons .

    • Androsa, thanks for reading it and analyzing why I didn’t overload it with technology, although, it’s set 500 years in the future. I didn’t feel this series would have carried the “full-throttle” hi-tech mantle very well. Like you said, it’s about a woman struggling to stay alive. A mother trying to protect her child. A woman who doesn’t have the resources to buy all the technology of her day. Those pursuing her makes sure she stay in poverty. It’s easier to harm someone in poverty than not.

    It’s definitely not your regular romance story. It is a scary, romance. It is a story of a woman trapped in a snow storm with no food and safe water. It’s a story of survival. The place, an old hunting cabin they are trapped in is haunted. And I mean haunted in a terrible kind of way. Black masses are carried out there. human sacrifices are the order of the day.

    Anyway, Sam—who isn’t who is pretending to be makes a bet with Lilith that he can catch Ana and kill her. He ends up losing the bet because he ends up tripping and falling in love with Ana against his better judgement.

    Well, what can I say about Azazel? Azazel is a cheating, no good scandal as to why she accepts Sam’s marriage proposal.

    There are just too many red flags Ana are missing or is ignoring when it comes to dealing with Sam. First of all, Sam is creepy. No matter nice he is to Ana and Bea he gives off the creep vibes. Second, his staff, his followers are scared to death of him. I guess they have a good reason to be scared of him. He eats people. Third, the rushed wedding takes place far out in some weird desert place.

    I’m not telling the entire story, but it is worth reading if you are tired of sappy love stories or some woman killing herself because she’s in love and things don’t turn out the way she wanted them to. I rightly don’t know what you would call this story than paranormal romance. Don’t read the parts about the things in the shadows and the horned demon during the night. Wait until daylight.

    I love to sit at fireplaces on cold winter nights. But the thought of something might be in the flames it staring back at me….well, that part frighten me a little.

    Despite the scary parts I loved the storyline, the action and Ana standing up to both of them.

    Oh, I caught it with the first read, that there was something supernatural happening in the very beginning. The part in which the “didn’t-read-the-story” reviewer said that there were “extraneous words, repeated phrases” that Ana was going through some kind of supernatural time loop, and that something was messing with reality. How else so *you show *a time loop rather than tell the reader that’s what’s happening?

    Ana mentally repeating things to herself was showing her noticing she is going through the time loop and the constant finding the road blocked off told a reader that she knew something wasn’t right about what was happening to her.

    It is a lot like Leonardo DiCaprio’smovie “The *Revenant” well maybe quite to that extreme. Bea and Ana were inside a haunted cabin and not outside in the elements. But Sam was worse than any storm. Well, the survival things weren’t as extreme as in “The Revenant”

    • Well, I am happy that you caught what was being demonstrated. I thought about writing as it as Ana was feeling distorted, disorientated and such, but I realized that isn’t how time loops work. If they did, people would recognize them much sooner.

    A church has a rat problem

    The church doesn’t want to kill the rats so they trap them and release them far away, but the next day they are back.

    Next they try ask them politely to leave, still they won’t budge.

    Finally the priest has one last idea, he baptized all the rats.

    Now they only come at Christmas and Easter.

    man walked into a bar. He sat down and asked the bar tender “If I impress you, can I have a free drink?”. The bar tender said sure, so the man reached in his pocket and pulled out a tiny piano. He then pulled out a small rat and set it by the piano. It crawled on to the bench and began playing

    music. The bar tender was amazed, so he gave the man a beer. Next, the man said “If I impress you even more, can I have free drinks for life?”. The bar tender didn’t think it was possible, so he agreed. The man pulled a frog out of his pocket, and it began to sing by the piano. The bar tender smiled and told the man that he was impressed. A man in a suit with a cane walked into the bar, saw the small animals, and offered to buy them for $2 million. The owner said no, but he offered to sell the frog for $500k. The rich man agreed, took the frog, and left. The bar tender couldn’t believe the owner just did that and said “Why did you just sell the frog?! There is no singing now!”. The owner laughed and said “Don’t worry; the rat is a ventriloquist!”.

    Two professors of economics were walking down a road when they saw a dead rat.

    The older one said – “If you eat this, I’ll pay you ₹10,000”. The younger one makes a quick cost-benefit analysis and finally eats the rat.

    The younger professor experiences a bad after-taste and wants the older professor to experience the same. When he sees another dead rat on the road, he dares the professor to eat it in exchange for the old ₹10,000. The senior professor, eager to recover his reckless bet, eats it.

    After a few minutes of walking silently, the younger professor finally says – “Looks like we’ve been eating dead rats for free.”

    The older professor remarks, “But don’t forget we just added ₹ 20,000 to the GDP!”

    RATS!
