Review of Dark Lullaby by Mayra Calvani

Welcome to my Review of Dark Lullaby by Mayra Calvani
At a trendy Turkish tavern one Friday night, astrophysicist Gabriel Diaz meets a mysterious young woman. Captivated out of his senses by her physical perfection as well as her views on good and evil, he spends the next several days with her. After a while, however, he begins to notice a strangeness in her—her skin’s abnormally high temperature, her obsession with milk products, her child-like and bizarre behavior as she seems to take pleasure in toying with his conscience. 

The young woman, Kamilah, invites him to Rize, Turkey, where she claims her family owns a cottage in the woods. In spite of his heavy workload and the disturbing visions and nightmares about his sister’s baby that is due to be born soon, Gabriel agrees to go with her. 

But nothing, not even the stunning beauty of the Black Sea, can disguise the horror of her nature. In a place where death dwells and illusion and reality seem as one, Gabriel must now come to terms with his own demons in order to save his sister’s unborn child, and ultimately, his own soul.
My Review
This is the perfect time of year to read this novel with Halloween just around the corner.  It is dark and creepy story that combines paranormal and horror.

Expect to huddle on your couch in a blanket and still have chills. I have a whole new awareness of the dangers of going home from a bar with a stranger even it you are the man. Women can be quite dangerous too.  Men you have received fair warning.
