The Diablon

Hello all,

Some of you may know that I’ve been working on a series of novels. As of yet, I haven’t let too many people see it. After a few damning critiques, I was going to put it aside, but after much umming and erring I’ve decided to post it piece by piece on my blog. What do I have to lose? I’ll let you decide if you like it. It’s a dark fantasy and not to everyone’s taste, but I think there are plenty yet who might. If it is poorly received, then I’ll put it in my bottom drawer uncompleted, but if it’s liked well enough, I’ll finish it. I’ll leave it up to you. Please, feel free to comment on my page—good or bad. After reading each bite-size portion, there will be a comment section at the bottom.


What if you had to live your life under the threat of a terrible monster? For one girl that is reality. Follow Lilitha as she tries to escape the Diablon’s clutches before it devours her.

The people of Norfolk have suffered foul weather for the past ten years, their farms are flooded and they’re starving. Their only hope is the Diablon, a legendary monster which can clear the skies by devouring guilty souls. Or so it is believed.
Best friends Lilitha and Clara are two such guilty souls. They’re Defective, both born with features considered evil in the eyes of the Church—Clara is mute and Lilitha is a redhead.
For most of their lives they have concealed themselves successfully—until the day Sir Mandalay, Norfolk’s head knight, finally discovers them.
Their fate is assured. the Diablon will devour them, body and soul. But is the Beast all that it seems?
Lilitha is soon to find out, and when she does, she will uncover a terrible truth that will change her life forever.

The Diablon

Book one of a four part series, The Diablon is action-packed, bloody, violent and erotic, but underneath it all are indestructible friendships, moments of great self-sacrifice and profound love.

  1. There is great potential for scenes in first person here.
    Being chased
    Depicting just how terrified she is
    Perhaps the rage of the creature that oddly and almost comically turns to confusion. A ‘blood haired being’ could be part of the Diablon peoples’ prophecy (bit of a turnaround). In the eyes of the beast genre types are way more cool and accepted now 🙂 ‘interview with the Vampire’ etc.
    First person of the beast could be epic. Written in a completely different language style to encompass his alien mind 🙂 for those scenes.


    1. Interesting thought. I am considering rewriting the story, this time through the eyes of the monster (as well as from the human side). First person is an interesting thought. Thanks for the comment.
