Review of Dark Lullaby by Mayra Calvani and Liz, his ex-girlfriend of 3 years, are sitting in a tavern one Friday night.  While having a discussion on the morality of the death penalty.  A woman, Kamilah, walks up to their table asking to join their conversation.  Gabriel can't take his eyes off of her, he is fascinated by everything about her, including her views on the topic.  After that moment, things start to get weird and Gabriel goes on the adventure of his life.  Liz feels like she's losing her mind.  Will Gabriel open his eyes to the real Kamilah in time?  And what do these events have to do with his twin sister's baby?

A little disappointed in the ending, I wanted it to go the other way, kind of.  I think you'd have to read it to understand what I mean, I don't want to give away any spoilers.  Overall, I really liked the story.  I love the back story of the lights.  An interesting twist and consequence to a normally controversial topic.  This story was definitely unique, haunting...  I have never read anything like it, my dreams last night were so creepy!  Good and Evil are shown in such a gray light, what one knows to be right or wrong, morality is brought into question.  Amazing how this author was able to really make the reader think about how some things, really aren't as black and white as we might think they are.
