Masterfully crafted by Heaven Liegh Eldeen, ‘The Demon Side’ is out to deliberately buck the trend of what appears to be an endless stream of similar vampire novels. Her narrative is breaking new ground, tying in fiction with a chillingly-real portrayal of how mental illness affects struggling families, as well as showcasing their constant fight for redemption. The novel has gained over thirty-five rave reviews on Amazon, with one critic hailing it “a tremendous twist on unconditional love”.
Sacramento, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/05/2015 -- While supernatural fiction has become something of a literary staple, both readers and critics are currently crying out for wholly unique new narratives that don't succumb to recycling of the "same-old" concepts. In 2012, Heaven Liegh Eldeen's family dared her to write something "different" – a challenge she crushed with gusto.
'The Demon Side' has since won the hearts and attention of thousands of readers; not just for its gripping story, but for its chilling portrait of mental illness and its ability to tear apart an entire family.
"Every kid has problems. Every kid has even more problems when they move to a new home. But when a kid with problems moves to a new home that has a Demon living inside it-look out! Etta's world is about to spin out of control when she encounters her new roommate-and Rahovart, that ancient trickster, is in for a few surprises too.
So don't mind all the crashing and rumbling; that's just the normal noise Angels and Demons make when they're fighting an epic war in the attic. One thing's for sure: Etta and Rahovart will have to go through Hell to Heaven and back again before that old Victorian home in Quantico Town finally quiets down.
"You won't find me falling into the trap of clichéd romance," explains the author. "This is grassroots emotion; uncut and not afraid to display the torment families go through as they attempt to transcend mental illness and find redemption. But there is a message that comes along with it – that a path to the greater good exists through even the most vivid of hells. Finding it isn't easy, but it's there."
Continuing, "Etta has to endure a drunk step-mother, a dysfunctional wider family and also the adjustment of moving into a house that has been occupied by a demon for years. I'll leave readers to decide what the demon really stands for – and even if it exists at all. This is certainly a thought-provoking read that has garnered quite a buzz."
Since its release, the novel has been received with critical acclaim. Katharine Drake comments, "Heaven Leigh Eldeen has written a heart wrenching, tender, brilliant, wonderful, magnificent story!! A girl who sees demons and the demon who remembers who he really is because of her. It doesn't get better than this. I loved every single sentence. I started reading and figured it would be a good book to take to the tub everyday but after spending two hours getting all pruny I came to the conclusion that my life would have to be put on hold until I finished The Demon Side."
Another reader adds, "Holy Hell, what an outstand story. You are hearing the thoughts of a Demon who lives within a house for many years. Boy did things change once he met the newest owners. This amazing story has adventure, Demons, Angels, Romance and things that have been lost for years brought back into play."
Karli Krush writes, "Absolutely the best book I have read this year, and I have read quite a few."
