LIAM O’SHEA, bestseller author of the SciFi saga, Eiloe.
All I knew was pain – a childhood filled with cruelty and villains who used and abused.
I first heard her sweet, angelical voice in the dark of night, when I lay bathed in my own impending death. Seventeen years later, it’s not the nightmare she pulled me out of that haunts me, but the glimpse of Happily Ever After she revealed just before disappearing.
They said she was a figment of my boundless imagination. A wish. A dream. Until I had no choice but to believe them, cherishing my imaginary savior the only way I knew how – in fiction and lore.
But fantasy has a way of transforming reality. When I finally tire of being a citizen of the world, I take an impromptu sabbatical as a professor at a small college on the coast of Maine. And there I see her, the girl with the sea-green eyes and angelic voice.
My world turns upside down. Turns out my girl is for real, and the pull between us is anything but imaginary.
Happily Ever After has a story … and this one is mine.
Liam had a very bad childhood, he had been tortured brutally. His only reprieve was Eolie, a prodigious daughter of two scientist, who used to talk to him through telepathy during his agony. But after he gets rescued from his place of torture, he loses all connections with Eolie, and was forced by the doctors to believe that Eolie was nothing but a figment of imagination. After years, on his first day of college as a professor, he again hears her voice, crying for help. He along with his friends try to search for Eolie. But She soon arrives, on her own, in his college campus.
The love story of Liam and Eolie is really beautiful.The journey of their life, the way they overcome the different problems that arises, and still stand united is engaging and well written. I also liked his group of friends, who were also like his family, they stood beside him althrough the novel, helping him when needed.
Having said the good words, I would say that I found the novel to be a bit slow paced at parts, and a little unbelievable, in few places. This were the only bad points about this novel.
“Happily Ever After isn’t a destination, it’s an ongoing journey that never ends and only gets better.”– A quote from the novel. This book actually made me believe this.
Overall I would say that this novel is beautifully written. I enjoyed reading it and I would recommend it to all romance lovers.
