Book Description

GOLD MEDAL WINNER - FICTION
2013 ILLUMINATION BOOK AWARDS


"Ashley nails the struggles of good vs. evil, religious, political and individual flaws and weaknesses/strengths. The use of Scripture is amazing and her suck-you-in style captivates the reader with her vivid characters and their motivations." - Janelle Taylor, NY Times bestselling author of Necessary Evil

"Any...reader interested in intrigue, mystery, supernatural thrillers and a thread of spirituality linking all elements will find this an engrossing saga with unexpected turns and a very unpredictable conclusion." - D. Donovan, eBook reviewer, MidWest Book Reviews



Karmen Moncrille's name has been known throughout the world since the age of sixteen when her first book shot to the top of the bestseller's list. Now everything she writes is an instant hit, and her legions of devoted fans eagerly await her next release.

The mysterious Karmen always blamed debilitating panic attacks as the reason she avoided publicity and has become a recluse. Which is exactly what she wants the world to think. Only Karmen knows the truth behind her introverted nature. Terrified of being asked where her ideas come from, she fears being branded a raving lunatic.

Now just a week before her twenty-third birthday, Karmen’s world implodes. The madness that haunts her dreams spills over to her reality and she questions her sanity. Suddenly everything has changed and now the world will transform with her. Her last book will unleash the truth and alter mankind—forever.

Is Karmen's ability to write a gift or a curse? She's about to find out if her entire life is a lie. And why she was destined to write it.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"The series of events which follow is the stuff of nightmares and box office blockbusters...Ashley Fontainne's own literary voice is equal parts siren and succubus. Easy, natural dialogue is interspersed with sections of bloodcurdling demonic narrative so precise and malevolent that it will unseat the most rational resolve." Reviewed by Rich Follett for Readers' Favorite

5.0 out of 5 stars Could be a movie!!! November 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
First, let me say that the cover to The Lie grabbed my attention and it made me very interested to see what would lie between the pages. And, yikes, this book has a little bit of everything!!! It is one big adventure of suspense, good vs. evil, and above all else it has excellent storytelling.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars A Story of Deception October 20, 2013
Format:Paperback
Ashley Fontainne's book, "The Lie," is a gripping suspense thriller that is a not-to-be-missed engrossing read. Ms. Fontainne keeps upping the stakes with her exceptional gift of storytelling.

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.

(I received a free copy of this book for the sole purpose of giving my review.)

Format:Kindle Edition
John 8:44 - You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jaw-dropping climax October 14, 2013
Format:Paperback
For regular readers of BestChickLit, you’ll know we’re big fans of Ashley Fontainne, having read all her books to date. The Lie is something totally different and unexpected but still retains that dark, sinister feel Fontainne is so apt at creating.

The story is so incredibly intriguing and unpredictable that you’re honestly never sure what’s going to happen next. Beginning with a series of small chapters that, at first read, seem confusing but in fact set the book up beautifully for an original and thought-provoking read. The characters are real, solid, likeable types that don’t overshadow what’s at the core of the story, instead they compliment it perfectly and the whole package flows along seamlessly.

Many questions and loose ends crop along the way but, thankfully, you’re not left hanging as each one is answered and sewn up, making for a very happy reader. The climax is a jaw-dropper, something you just can’t and won’t see coming, and the whole supernatural element gives it feeling, more of an edge. There could possibly be a sequel, judging by the last few paragraphs but I wonder if the very clever Ms Fontainne has, for now, left this up for reader interpretation . . ?

More About the Author

Award-winning and International bestselling author Ashley Fontainne is an avid reader of mostly the classics. Ashley became a fan of the written word in her youth, starting with the Nancy Drew mystery series. Stories that immerse the reader deep into the human psyche and the monsters that lurk within us are her favorite reads.

Her muse for penning the EVISCERATING THE SNAKE series was The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. Ashley's love for this book is what sparked her desire to write her debut novel, Accountable to None, the first book in the trilogy. With a modern setting to the tale, Ashley delves into just what lengths a person is willing to go when they seek personal justice for heinous acts perpetrated upon them. The second novel in the series, Zero Balance focuses on the cost and reciprocal cycle that obtaining revenge has on the seeker. For once the cycle starts, where does it end? How far will the tendrils of revenge expand? Adjusting Journal Entries answered that question: far and wide.

Her short thriller entitled Number Seventy-Five, touches upon the sometimes dangerous world of online dating. Number Seventy-Five took home the BRONZE medal in fiction/suspense at the 2013 Readers' Favorite International Book Awards contest and is currently in production for a feature film.

Her latest release, the suspenseful thriller The Lie, took home the GOLD medal in the 2013 ILLUMINATION BOOK AWARDS for ebook/fiction.
