"Paranormal horror that may be offensive to many."
Robert Noirson is a Son of the Devil, able to appear human
by the powers of his father. He is the plenipotentiary of
Evil on Earth and can resuscitate any person who dies
unless they die by fire. At a charity benefit, he sees and
meets Maria Jablonskaia, Mary J, whom he recognizes as a
clone of the Virgin Mary. He is immediately enthralled
with the girl and arranges to spend time with her,
subsequently deciding to divorce his wife Judy and marry
Mary J is an orphan. She is smart and willful, and
presents a facade of little to no ambition. She has no
desire to obey her guardians' orders to meet with him, but
their will prevails. He intrigues her with his magical
abilities and insight of her latent powers and inner
desires. When he resuscitates a man hit by a car she
perceives him as the Messiah and agrees to marry him,
believing he will amicably divorce his wife. Judy dies in
a fire a day later and the two are wed.
Robert's secret identity is well guarded.
Breaking this primary rule results in a 'ride to hell'
where one is tormented by his worst fears. Although many
clues are given to Mary, she chooses to overlook them and
stand by her angel despite several occasions of physical
harm and persecution. Robert is beguiling and possessive,
tender at times, unmerciful at others. He is, after all,
working on his father's behalf. Mary eventually discovers
his secret and chooses to remain in the marriage. The
pair's allegiance to each other falters on occasion, but
While this book chronicles the lives of the
Noirsons, it also speaks of many other people: their
adoptive children and servants, demons and humans. It
details the choices of inhabitants, both in their former
lives and present existence in a pseudo-world where they
fall in and out of love and decide their ultimate fate.
Acting against the Noirsons results in a 'ride to hell,'
but good behavior and timely prayers can result in
salvation. A call upon God is always answered. On her
birthdays, Mary releases some people from their servitude,
one of her relatively frequent acts of mercy. Other
options are offered when Mary's brother-angel, Michael
Alter, arrives in their midst to light a different path. A
maelstrom ensues, some are saved and others ensure their
place in hell.
Lily Alex weaves a complex web of intrigue, heartbreak,
love, evil and goodness. This book is challenging and
thought-provoking. She cites most strongly the act of
choice and the rewards or repercussions of our decisions.
Love is a choice, governed only by one's self and may or
may not be returned by the favored person. As in real
life, one's perception of love may vary from one person to
"Lost on Earth or Fateful Love" contains cruel events,
strong language, violence, some sexual situations. This
material may be disturbing and offensive to innumerable
readers. I didn't comment on the editing of the story in
the review, but the MANY editing errors were quite
disconcerting and readers will find make for difficult

Can angels fall in love and act like ordinary people?
This is a romantic thriller about love adventures of
angels, demons, and humans in the "real" life.
Can Love bring happiness or problems and troubles only?
This is a romantic story. If you do not believe in strong
feelings, do not read it.
But this also is an action-filled book that will capture
your attention until you finish reading.
What if your loved one was brutally murdered?
This book contains cruel events, strong language, violence,
some sexual situations. It is just like real life after all.
In this fantasy story Love and loss, miracles and actions
are tied together. In this book no sin goes without a
punishment, however, no prayer goes without a response. All
the time the heroes have to make their choice.
She wants him, she gets him, she loses him, she wins him.
He can not control her.
These are a few love stories. The heroes love and help each
other, they are brawling and fighting, they split up and
make up, they are ready to die for each other, and even
death can not separate them.
Evil is interminable, but Love always wins!
