The Eternity Road By Lana Melyan



The Eternity Road
By Lana Melyan

As soon as I seen this book, the cover grabbed me. I am one of those who admire art, so I do look at the covers closely. And then I won’t lie, knives and swords can sometimes be truly beautifully designed. And then there is lightening. All of this, and the beautiful blue, make this cover just pop. It immediately makes you want to open up the book and want to know what is in store for you. 

Also, let it be known, that I am not one who reads the back of books ‘most of the time’ to see what I am in store for. With this one, I didn’t know anything about what I was in store for, so I was wondering why a sword with lightening was on the cover, and just what I had to look forward to. 

Then I met Amanda. She is a lot like me when it comes to dreaming. She dreams things that seem so life like, that when she wakes up, she wonders if in fact, “wait, did that just happen…or was I dreaming.” However, this didn’t start happening to Amanda until she turned eighteen, for me it’s been a lifelong sentence. 

One day, Amanda decides to tell her housekeeper and friend, who has been by her side since her mothers death, what she has been experiencing. Melinda, the housekeeper, lies, and assures her it is nothing at all. Now why would she go and do that? What is her purpose in hiding the truth from Amanda? My curiosity is now peaked, isn’t yours?

Hanna is Amanda’s best friend, and Hanna has a brother, Craig, who low and behold is in love with Amanda. But wouldn’t you know it, there is a secret there that keeps him from telling her his feelings. Yet another thing to be curious about. 

Now there are two Vampires who are posting as men, and they decide it is high time to hunt Amanda. Then, Melinda decides to unearth to Craig that Melinda has been having dreams, and this now causes everything to change between the two of them. Craig and Hanna are hunters, fortunately for Amanda they will be able to defeat the supernatural beings and protect her. 

Throughout this book, and a long friendship and desire for love, a bond is created, and a great battle won. Not to mention, the truth is able to set them all free, once and for all.

I found this book to be a great read, very powerful, and I felt that I was just unable to put it down. I kept wanting to know more, and had to know more, until I had completely finished the book. Amanda is an excellent character and I could most definitely relate to her, and loved the story, and give it five beautiful stars! I am so glad to have had the opportunity to read: “The Eternity Road” and share it with my readers!


Here are my questions for Lana:




1.  What made you decide to write "The Eternity Road" and how long did it take you?

Bottom of Form

I never thought that I’d be a writer. I never really knew who I wanted to be. Not everybody does, and sometimes it takes a lifetime to find out. I always loved supernatural stories, and TV shows like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Vampire Diaries" inspired me to write my own story in that genre. 

2. Do you have any photos or descriptions of your characters?

No, I don't have any photos. My characters are fictional and readers can find description of them in the book.

3. How long have you been writing and what are you working on now?

I didn't restrict myself with deadlines and it took one and a half year to write my novel. Flashbacks to 17th and 19th century are a big part of the book, so a lot of time I spent on research. Right now I am working on the sequel.

4. Who designed the beautiful cover?

My book cover was designed by Ivan Zanchetta. I found him on Deviant Art.


5. What is your favorite book of all times?

There are many books I love, but I don't have one for all times. As we grow up, we change, and our taste changes, too. 

6. Have you ever met any Authors IRL?

No I haven't.

7. What gives you the desire to write?

I want to quote a man whose work became my biggest inspiration "I write to give myself strength. I write to be a characters that I am not. I wright to explore all the things I am afraid of." -- Joss Whedon.


8. What are your hobbies?

Books, movies and PS games. I am a huge fan of Tomb Raider, Uncharted and The Last of Us.

9.   What all education have you had?

I studied literature in college for five years.
