Book Review: 'Heart of a Warrior Angel' by Lali A. Love

Heart of a Warrior Angel by Lali A. Love
‘Awakening is not changing who you are but discarding who you are not’ Deepak Chopra

Canadian author Lali A. Love makes her literary debut with HEART OF A WARRIOR, the first installment of a trilogy ‘based on the journeys of three incarnated Angels that have been brought together in the third-dimensional existence, to realize their Divine Feminine soul purpose. Each of them must experience unique self-actualization to overcome the dark demonic entities that are determined to destroy their inner light to derail their mission.’ In preparation for this venture Lali has researched the quantum energy field of transmutation, metaphysics, and the Universal Laws of Energy. She lives in Ottawa. 

Many aspects of Lali’s first novel herald a fine new voice and presence – her choice of quotations such as the Deepak Chopra words that title this review, the sensitive simple drawings that enhance the novel, and most important, the straightforward prose style that delivers the sensitive philosophical ideas she has written into this visionary fiction thriller. 

The manner in which Lali has elected to open her story gives credence to her art of writing: ‘On the eve of her milestone birthday, as Lilac sat in her studio admiring the abstract composition of her landscape painting, she could not help but reflect on her life’s journey over the past years. The textures and vibrant colours of the acrylic paint had provided her tranquility and were quite therapeutic, especially during the moments she felt emotionally vulnerable. Lately, she had felt the anxiety of her youth that emanated from the post-traumatic stress of her upbringing take a stranglehold of her heart. The acrylic painting had helped her find temporary relief as she expressed her emotions creatively through her art while processing her complicated feelings.’ The mood is set, sufficient backstory is offered to alert us to the thoughts to come – all set a fine example of her prose.

The story is complex, but again Lali offers a succinct synopsis to prepare the reader: ‘Lilac Noble must face the traumatic experiences of her childhood before she can conquer the dark entities that have wreaked havoc on her family. On this epic journey, Lilac undergoes the destructive process of spiritual enlightenment in order to lift the veil of darkness and shame that has obscured her youth. As Lilac unlocks painful memories of abuse, suppressed in her subconscious from years of fear-based conditioning, she uncovers menacing secrets feeding the evil within her generational bloodline. In an attempt to vanquish the sinister energies, Lilac finds the courage to discover her inner truth, vulnerability, and authenticity, as she awakens her divine light and overcomes her debilitating fears of the past. Lilac's unconditional love for her family guides her through her process of healing and transformation, fuelling her instinct for survival and her burning desire to illuminate the world. Spanning two continents and three generations, this inspirational novel portrays the best and worst of humanity and shows how the "tiniest spark of light can overcome the darkness of any magnitude," through forgiveness, compassion, and the most powerful force in the universe – Love.’

Welcome a new, significant voice about whom we will likely be hearing kudos! Recommended.
