BL Marsh's debut novel is unlike anything out on the market right now. It's a thought provoking tale that will pull you into a world that keeps you wanting for more. The underlying love story of Lilith and Sam is poetic and romantic. This is a genre that I am not easily sucked into but I could not put the book down and it left me wanting for more. The book is intelligent in its use of romance, fantasy, mythical and religious tales all interwoven for a magical ride.

It took me a really long time to get into this book. There are just SO MANY characters and SO MUCH story history to figure out. The book begins with a pages long character list, including connections. My mind kind of reeled. Then there’s religion, and mythology, and paranormal creatures… and you just wonder how that will all work. Then there’s current time… and the time before Lilith can remember… and the time before that. Then I lost track of how many locations or realms there are. AND for the ...more

This book has an elaborate tale to tell. The magical world created was interesting. What brought it down for me was the back and forth of the story. To the past, then present, then past. At some points, I felt confused, others, annoyed. How long had Lilith been around? It took me a while to realize what the time frame meant. There were some explanations that got repeated too much. At points, the back story got to be long winded.

But in all, this is a wonderful fantasy romance. If you fo

I had to reread this story because I forgot what had happened when I took a break from reading and had to do some school stuff.

The story is wonderful and new. I never thought much about stories similar to this but after ereading this story, it got me hooked!

The mysteries surrounding Lilith's life is what kept me going and I know readers have felt this. Fromt he start we get to join Lilith and her discovery of the life she has and when little bits and pieces are slowly revealing themselves, we t

4.5 Stars - B.L. Marsh has created a distinctive and magical world with her debut novel, The Lilith Scroll. Sam and Lilith’s story is elegant and charming. The romantic element of their story was heart-warming and endeared them to me immediately. I quickly found myself immersed in this fantasy world and enchanted by the cast of complicated and fascinating characters. B.L. has carefully crafted a world that is intelligent, complex and bathed in historical and religious significance. The elaborate ...more

The Lilith Scroll is, in simplest terms, a love story. It’s the story of Lilith and Samael, the miracle of their creation, how they were torn apart from one another, and then - after 6,000 years - are finally reunited.

But, it’s also a story of good versus evil. How a being who is goodness incarnate had his name stolen and then desecrated by his own brother. Evil such as this has consequences that ripple throughout all of creation.

I had the amazing experience of working on this book as an editor.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I admit I was skeptical about the premise of the story but I soon found myself unable to put down my kindle. The only issue I had with the story was there was too much time devoted to Lilith’s inner dialogue.

Other than that issue, the story flowed just fine. I really like how the secondary characters come into play and you see how everything connects to the story. I am looking forward to reading the next installment of the story.

The Lilith Scroll takes me into a different world and I loved it! The moment I've read the prologue I knew that I will enjoy this book.
If you really read Fantasy/Paranormal you will really enjoy this book....
BL Marsh is definitely a gifted writer to be able to create such masterpiece..
Lilith and Samael's love is so amazing, and inspiring!

This has got to be one of the best love stories I have ever read. This story talks about the creation of these two powerful immortals. They now nothing about who they are they are all they know is that they are searching for each other. This book shows how powerful love and heartbreak is. The author has a way of bringing everything to life. I can not wait to get my hands on more of her works.

The Lillith Scroll - this is a 5 star for me - **I was given this book to review as part of a Promotional Book tour on my Blog, and this is my honest review**

The Synopsis opens with :

I really wanted to like The Lillith Scroll more than I did. The concept is fascinating. I love it when historic and factual information is combined with fantasy and romance, and the story of Lillith set in Scotland sounded like a true winner to me. I was thinking it might be something along the lines of A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness.

However, this book didn't quite meet my expectations, mostly because not much happened in it. The story is incredibly heavy with back story--to the poin

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I wanted to like this book, the synopsis sounded amazing, but somewhere along the way I just ended up feeling very lost. Maybe it was the huge cast of characters that we never really get to connect with (and I was too lazy to go back to the beginning where there is a list of them and their connection to things to see why they were important) or the various different locations that Lilith is always being whisked away to, many times w

*I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Let me begin by saying that this book is very complex and required total attention. This is not a light read by any means which is just what I had been looking for. With a large cast of characters and a very detailed story line I was fully engaged. The Lilith Scrolls is an in depth look at religion, myth and the question of soul mates.

Have you ever read a book that was so good it left you reeling and kind of speechless? If not you should read this book to get that feeling. I would give this book a 10 star if Amazon would let me. This book was about Lilith from the bible and a prophesy that goes back six thousand years ago. Though it is about religion, don't let it scare you away from it as it is very different turn of events then the bible. I like this turn of events better. I would recommend this book to all my friends and i ...more

The Lilith Scroll (Kindle Edition)
The Lilith Scroll is beyond awesome! The story line is fantastic. The Characters are above amazing! Absolutely wonderful! A rollercoaster of emotions that will leave you breathless! I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. I am so glad I was given the special opportunity to read a free ARC of this book. Once I started reading the first chapter of this book, I knew I was hooked!

Lilith is no child, but she is. This is six thousand years of mystery surrounding a girl created outside of what we know as time. From a hidden tomb, she's released to earth, where her guardians (dragons!) watch over her as she becomes a woman, a scholar, and something more.
No spoilers here, but this is a must read for geeks of ancient history and the unknown.

Great idea for a book. But there was just so much going on. I had to read the book twice to completely understand it. Just when you start to really get into the characters there's a freaking cliff hanger ending. There's still so much of the story to tell.

This book had me comfused from the beginning if I'm being honest; and i only write honest reviews ~ with NO SPOILERS.
There were several times that i did have to go back to the "cast of characters" page & the book started really slow for me. It was hard to get into & generally i know if i am going to like a book by chapter 3, if i don't i usually put it down, but there was something about this book that made me want to keep reading.
Again being honest i am glad that I kept reading, the boo

This is a book I have been meaning to read since last October. My mom actually read it and loved it so I added it to my list instead of just hosting a giveaway. It's rare that my mother and I read the same book, so I was interested in our differing tastes. Now, due to my extreme procrastination, I finished it in about 24 hours so I would be finished by the book event B.L. Marsh would be attending. It was surprisingly easy to do even with my

WOW! I just finished this book, and a lot quicker than I had anticipated I would. Once you're a little further into the story and can seamlessly situate past from present it's impossible to put this book down! You will find yourself visiting that glossary to reference the multitude of characters that unfold in many parts of the story, but I found it helpful and it didn't bother me to have to visit it while reading.

When I first began reading this book, I was captivated by the storyline. Lilith St. Clare and Samael were created by Yahweh as one being with two souls, then split apart to be reunited in a loving ceremony. On her wedding day, Lilith is stolen by one who thinks she is his soulmate, keeping her and Samael apart for six thousand years, both suffering the loss of their other half. The trials they experience as the story unfolds provide the reade
