Review

"King beautifully weaves a tale filled with Celtic, Hawaiian and even Australian influences to create an informative, magical adventure of one woman finding her true self." - Kirkus Reviews "Wind these subplots into a suspenseful read packed with vivid imagery and surreal encounters for a story line that will require from its readers an ability to absorb a dizzying array of events, mysteries, supernatural intrigue, and action." -Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Reviews

We are proud to announce that THE FIRST LIE by Virginia King is a B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree. This tells a reader that this book is well worth their time and money! - indie B.R.A.G. King beautifully weaves a tale filled with Celtic, Hawaiian and even Australian influences to create an informative, magical adventure of one woman finding her true self. - Kirkus Review My instant reaction to this novel is "Wow." It definitely takes one very talented author to write such a clever mystery, and still manage to make the story equally hilarious, sexy, and entertaining. I abolutely loved it and I didn't want it to end. - Cheryl Schopen for Readers' Favorite ... a suspenseful read packed with vivid imagery and surreal encounters ... a dizzying array of events, mysteries, supernatural intrigue, and action. - Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest BookReview Virginia King weaves the symbolism of the world into a fast paced and exciting story that is part mystery and part mysticism, providing several strata of meaning in a very absorbing and thought provoking story. - Linda's Book Bag Virginia King has done a cracking job with this story. It is incredibly well written ... The character development is excellent ... - Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite King's use of folklore and cultural history ... makes for an enriching read. But the genius of her writing falls in the more casual hints at foreshadowing such as the Celtic meaning of the word Selkie - sea creature from Celtic folklore that takes the form of a seal in water but can take human form on land. These small clues heighten the suspense and engage the imagination as the novel takes on a more magical twist. - Forward Clarion Reviews The First Lie is simultaneously what I'd hoped yet nothing I expected: thrilling all the way through with new twists at every turn, written in a grand style in a modern setting, and opening the door to further exploration. - Before the Second Sleep Reviews I found the premise and the atmosphere of the novel to be completely original. It was tense, funny, creepy and exciting all in one ... King did a wonderful job writing this novel ... It was easy to read and even easier to get swept up in. The twists and turns were unexpected and it was so completely unlike anything I have ever read before! - Books Baby Being Reviews

Product Description

Selkie Moon is a woman on the run.

In a mad dash for freedom she’s escaped her abusive husband and reclaimed the name her dead mother gave her -- but her refuge in Hawaii begins to unravel and she’s running from something else entirely.

A voice in a dream says: Someone is trying to kill you. Not that Selkie’s psychic, no way.

But the threats escalate and the visions mount.

Is a ghostly woman stalking her?

Entangled in local superstition and folklore, the clues become so strange and frightening they begin to lift the lid on long-buried secrets.

What really happened on the beach thirty three years ago?

Why did Selkie's step-mother rename her Elkie?

And why won’t her father talk about it?

As her reality crumbles around her, Selkie’s instinct is to keep running. Because if she stays she must trust her psychic twinges and question every assumption her life is built upon – before time runs out.

Thus begins a journey of self-discovery that takes her around the globe to uncover one secret after another … and summon the courage and resourcefulness to survive each one.

If you love stories of self-discovery with a woman under pressure and a hint of magic realism, you'll adore The First Lie.

Get it now.

“Imagine an Indiana Jones adventure only on a more personal, psychic level.”
Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review

Winner of a BRAG Medallion and a Readers’ Favourite Silver Medal for Intrigue.
