Book Description

How can a man be in two places at once?

An evil, ancient as time itself is inadvertently set free and begins to feed, threatening the Drycenian home world and all of her people with extinction.

A crime of unimaginable horror promises to destroy a bond of friendship that once transcended the gulf between two alien races.  An unspeakable murder with just one obvious suspect.

As Vincent faces execution, his friends find a truth so terrifying that none wishes to believe it.

What was once just whispered tales around the firesides of drunken men, is now these friends' horrifying reality, and one for which they must find a solution before it is too late for Vincent.

A cold and primitive world, half a galaxy away, proves to hold the only thread of hope for resolution, held within the memory of a mysterious spiritual leader.

As the Drycenians continue to die, the friends must find out how to kill an evil so ancient, it is thought to be nothing more than legend.

Product Description

About the Author

Merita King has loved the science fiction and fantasy genre in both books and movies since she was a young child. She has been greatly inspired by years of watching movies and reading books and has wanted to make a contribution to this genre for many years. Her stories all contain a strong spiritual thread as she believes that spirituality is universal and crosses all boundaries. She believes that the creative process is largely intuitive and can be very effectively blocked by too much pre-planning. “Plot lines, characters and events all come to me intuitively,” she says, “and this makes the act of writing a constant pleasure.” She lives alone in Hampshire, UK.

More About the Author

I've loved science fiction since I was a young child growing up with Star Trek and my parents' love of all things connected with space. Whether it was fiction or science fact, if it was about space, the planets, and the universe, they absorbed it and passed on that love to me. I deeply regret being born at a time before space travel is a normal daily event. I have an adventurous spirit and would go into space without a second thought, if the chance came my way.

I can remember being a very young child and looking up at the sky and wondering why my real family left me behind on this planet, and hoping they were coming to get me soon. They never did, but I still have that feeling that I belong out there. I cannot go there of course, but in my books I can. Having grown up on a diet of space opera movies, TV and books, it was a foregone conclusion that it I ever wrote a book, it would be space opera. Many books later and I'm still enjoying exploring my very own universe.

When building my alien worlds, I am inspired by movies I've seen in the genre, rather than books I've read. I guess I'm a visual person, and people often say my books read like movies, that they 'see' a movie in their head as they're reading. I like that, I'm happy that happens. It is very important to me that anything I invent in my future universe, gadgets, gizmos, diseases etc, have a basis in today's known science fact. I research and begin with a known fact, then build from there. I feel that this helps to make my worlds believable for the reader. The great thing about space opera is that you can invent stuff, but if you're too fantastical you risk losing your reader's attention.

I'm autistic and live inside my head more so than those who don't have this condition. Interacting on a very deep level with my imagination is necessary for my mental health, so I find connecting with the flow of creative force, very easy. Away from writing, I enjoy making Native American inspired beaded pow wow fans, and I'm a crazy cat lady in training. I live alone with my two cats and a very vivid imagination, in Hampshire Southern England.


My books are available in paperback and kindle from Amazon uk and Amazon usa and from most internet suppliers.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW 18 Oct. 2012

I was given this book by the author in return for an honest review. ~WaAr~

I absolutely LOVE this series of books.
This book see's our group of friends (hero's) in action once again, as they fight another evil, which they must beat in order to save Drycenia. As people are dying for no apparent reason. They must strive to stick together and trust one another.
With lots of twist's and secret's this book definitely keeps you gripped.
Will they manage to defeat the evil before all of Drycenia is lost???
Wow!!! What an ending. This series of books are FANTASTIC from the start of book 1- "Redemption" to the very end of this book 3- "Changing Faces".

5.0 out of 5 stars IT KEEPS ON GETTING BETTER AND BETTER!! 5 Dec. 2012
By Books4Tomorrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
"Changing Faces", the third book in the Lilean Chronicles, kicks off with Vincent and Farra starting out on their intended honeymoon on Drycenia. A honeymoon that becomes a nightmare when Vincent ends up accused of rape and murder and all this because an ignorant miner on a faraway moon could not leave a crystal, buried in a pile of ashes, alone. With the Drycenian princess dead, prince Toma mostly possessed by evil, the nation in uproar and their spirit guides once again partially cut off from them, Vincent, Farra, Kyle and Jam have to survive and, above all, win against all odds.

Every time I read a new book in this series I feel that it is better than the previous one and this one is no exception. The story takes off immediately and does not slow down until the last page. The suspense will keep you riveted to your chair as our heroes race to and fro across the gulf of space and take part in dangerous operations on various planets.

The author skillfully blends known space and science fiction technology with her own extremely inventive creations, thus ensuring that readers of both the si-fi and fantasy genres will want to devour her books. By working her world building into her story, Merita King cleverly avoids lengthy, boring explanations - an admirable feat as her fictional universe is extensive.

With every new book the well crafted characters are allowed to grow and develop a bit more within realistic limits. As the characters are never afraid to shed a tear or give a hug, I find the close emotional bond they have with one another very touching. New characters add a freshness to every new book and quickly endear themselves to the reader.

I highly recommend this more than 5 star read to anybody with a taste for space and fantasy related fiction but I would advise readers to get hold of the first two books in this magnificent series before reading "Changing Faces". (Ellen Fritz)

5.0 out of 5 stars This is epic! 19 Sept. 2012

Wow! I really thought Merita King had outdone herself when she came out with The Lilean Chronicles: Book Two, The Sleeping but she just ratcheted up the fantastic suspense. I became so enthrawled in the story, I actually lost sleep. Of course book one and book two are great as well and they'll be out in ebook soon. Merita certainly deserves all five stars for this wonderful story. I will be recommending this to all my friends who read science fantasy and space opera.
