Ashley wrote a book that reminded me of a movie where I kept wondering what will happen next. And, then when “next” happened, I did not see it coming. The Lie is unpredictable, totally captivating, and I truly wish more people would check out this book!!!
MY RATING: 4.5
What makes "The Lie" unique is the author’s vast knowledge of the Bible and its Scripture, all cleverly wrapped around the elements of good vs. evil, spirituality, politics, and the supernatural. When her main character, the young protagonist Karmen Moncrille, discovers that her life has been based on deception, and that all of the innocent people around her are in grave danger, including herself, she embarks on a perilous journey of self-sacrifice to stave off the evil forces. Ms. Fontainne has created a dynamic character who is called upon to do extraordinary things in the face of adversity.
The author masterfully keeps the reader on edge with her explosive plot twists and turns. We are one with Karmen as she faces life-altering situations of epic proportions. Does she have the strength to endure the challenges she faces? What will she have to sacrifice?
Ms. Fontainne’s other special talent is her ability to successfully tie up the loose ends of her story, seamlessly, which she does accomplish. Be prepared to lose a lot of sleep when reading "The Lie," as it will have you glued to its pages night after night.

Author Ashley Fontainne has done it again: written a thrilling story that captivates from beginning to end--but this book is on a more epic scale!
This story begins with a satanic ritual wherein horrific sacrifices are made...a forewarning of things to come twenty-three years later. With expert finesse, Fontainne shifts back and forth to major events that culminate in the present with the life of a famous author, Karmen Mocrille. Karmen, now twenty-three, has been writing best-selling books since the age of sixteen, in a supernatural way. All she remembers is sitting at the computer, seeing ghosts of famous classical authors like Shakespeare and other deceased writers, then finding the novels completely written on her computer. She never discovers how she writes them, but she gives them to her mother and uncle to have them published, enabling them to have a rich, bountiful life.
Throughout her life, Karmen has been receiving mystical messages warning her of harmful future events, alerting her that her life has been based on deception. As she discovers more and more about her past, she doesn't know who to seek for help. Destiny sends an old friend back to her as well as her first boyfriend. And a preacher who had lost his own wife and child in an accident years ago, is also led to Karmen through spiritual channels. He convinces her of what he knows and together they embark on a dangerous mission to set things right.Read more ›
On another level, "The Lie" also operates as an exploration of the war between secular versus religious views of spiritualism. In this regard the book is perhaps a little bit less successful due to its reliance on some rather archaic characterizations of evil that perhaps could have been developed into something a bit more modern and complex. However, the strong degree of empathy and insight that the author displays in regard to her protagonist's inner life more than compensates for any deficiencies in the broader story since Karmen's inner struggle is clearly the focus of the story. The global religious war is merely the canvas upon which the character's personal struggle plays out.Read more ›
