Blog Tour & Giveaway: The Faith and Fate of David Ghent by Maren Dille!

Publication date: 21st January 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis: In the Lucen city dwell the descendants of Righteous and Fallen angels. Kept hidden from the rest of Earth and governed directly by Heaven, each descendant is given a chance to prove themself loyal to Heaven, and obtain salvation. For most, the task is encouraging and fair, but for David, it’s devastating.

David Ghent has waited twenty-one years to fulfill a prophecy foretelling the destruction of Lucifer’s power on Earth and Heaven, saving himself and the entire world from Hell’s power. His training is complete, the city prepared.

As the battle commences, the city’s most beloved daughter, Layla, suddenly appears at the Hellgate. David is then faced with an impossible choice: fulfill the prophecy, or save her life.

The consequences David faces after choosing Layla force him to question his entire life, and his loyalty to Heaven. As the aftermath of failure unfolds, David discovers that the real battle against Lucifer has just begun.

This book took me forever to actually get through! It felt like it every time I sat down to continue reading that I only got about 5-10% more through it and that sort of annoyed me but I have to be honest and say that I loved this book! I also never forgot what part of the book I stopped at! The plot was something that I probably wouldn't optionally choose to read but when I read the synopsis after Maren asked me to review it I decided to give it a try and I am glad that I did! It is always a surprise when you read a book that you aren't sure about so I decided to go out of my comfort zone with this book! The plot of this book focused on Heven and Hell and about angels! Now I know that some minds go to the Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick when people mention angels and I have to be honest and say that my mind didn't go there at all so I was very relieved! The Faith and Fate of David Ghent is in its own world! The plot had a lot in it so sometimes I found it a bit overwhelming but once I got used to it I managed to get a grasp of it! The characters were great! David was the main character and he went through such a massive change in this book! At the beginning he was a bit childish and a bit immature but by the end of the book he was a man in love I loved Layla! I think that she should have stood up to David for how he treated her at the start of this book but then she really liked him so I can understand why she didn't! She also grew so much in this book as well! The other characters were amazing as well and they all added so much to the story! I enjoyed that the point of views switched between about five or so different people which I though was going to annoy me and it did at the start but after I got used to it I really enjoyed going into other characters heads! I can completely understand why this book is a standalone as the ending was perfect! Big thank you to Maren for providing me with a copy of The Faith and Fate of David Ghent and also for asking me to be on her Blog Tour!

Author bio:

Maren grew up in Rochester, NY, which is why much of her work is set in the East. She moved to Provo, UT to attend Brigham Young University in 2004. Meanwhile, she received a license in cosmetology in 2006, and graduated with a B.S. in Home and Family Living-Clothing and Textiles in 2009. After graduation, Maren worked as a cosmetologist/barber, while her husband finished his own degree in Special Education. After he graduated, they settled in Spanish Fork, UT, where they plan on staying for a long time.

Now Maren is a stay-at-home mom, part-time piano teacher, cosmetologist, and writer. Amidst the buisiness of being a housewife, she loves reading, writing and playing music, vacationing, going on dates with her hubby and friends, throwing dinner parties, and sewing. She enjoys collecting books, and hopes someday to have a library big enough to fit all of them. Currently, her two pretty-enough-to-be-displayed-bookshelves are overflowing, and she's got books stashed all around her house. Open a random drawer, you'll probably find one.
Maren's previous work includes a short comedy, "A Tale of Two Cemeteries," and a middle-grade reader, The Treehouse. The Faith and Fate of David Ghent is her first published novel. Find out more about Maren at www.marendille.com, or on Facebook, Goodreads, and Amazon.
