Confessions of a War Child (Lia)
Chaker Khazaal has captured my heart once again with Confessions of a War Child (Lia), rattling my expectations and somehow outshining his first novel within pages of his second (and I do not make this statement lightly; the first was nothing short of breathtaking).
Moments of love and passion are plentiful, but moments of hope come few and far between for our beloved characters. I would challenge anyone to make it from one cover to the next without shedding a tear (or two (hundred)). This book—the writing, the story, and the anguish of the characters—demands to be felt and remembered. Every page pulls at the heart. It’s gripping. It’s beautiful. It’s perfect.
I am eagerly awaiting the third and final installment in this trilogy.
“Every story should have an ending because it is only then that a new beginning starts.”
Magical journey of love
Once again the impossibly young Chaker Khazaal enthrals us with his own brand of magical realism. Taking his favourite characters from the first book of the trilogy "Confessions of a War Child", he weaves an intricate tale that pulls in harrowing themes of destruction, war and ultimately the triumph of the human spirt and love itself. Brooding cloud of sexual tension tension lingers in the air but doesn't overpower the senses. If you enyoyed "Confessions of a War Child" you will love the spotlight on the main character, Lia. If you have yet to enter Chaker's world, you have a delicious surprise in store. And like the stories of Gabriel Garcia Marquez that linger in mind for years, "Confessions of a War a Child (Lia)" will become a welcome refuge when you need to be reassured that love conquers all.
