For hundreds of years and from generation to generation, a line of women has lived under the curse of Lilith, an implacable demoness consumed by vengeance and hatred.
In post-revolutionary France, following the brutal death of her mother, Rose finds herself with an absent father and a despotic grandmother. But she has to face much worse: Lilith and her age-old thirst for vengeance. This foul creature hunts down the older members of her family and shamelessly kills them a few years after they have given birth.
Faced with this evil being, Rose must now choose whether to trigger her fate or suffer it. She is the Guardian of humanity, heiress to a heavy, long-forgotten secret.
As a young child, Virginie Carré-Lapresad invented sequels to her favourite tales. Later she feeds her passion and imagination by reading authors as diverse as Stephen King, Jane Austen and Agatha Christie. She is rather shy and is often more at ease with a pencil, both for drawing and writing, giving her two outlets for her emotions, her anger and her passions. Her fantasy stories, anchored in a very real historical context, deal with universal themes such as love and family heritage.
