Overview

Wrecked on an unchartered island, his ship and crew lost in a storm, Captain Trebane struggles to survive amongst the island’s deadly community of immortals. Beset by the peculiar, dark magic that pervades the jungle, and the curse which has driven its inhabitants to savagery, Trebane discovers that, beneath the island’s tropical beauty, lurks the shadow of an age old evil. Battling to rescue the woman he loves from the cathedral at the island’s heart, he encounters the reclusive skeleton leader of the savages, along with the island’s other strange inhabitants. As Trebane explores, he learns more of the island’s curse, its connections with the Garden of Eden, its history, and the inexorable fate which tugs upon the lives of all its sinister occupants. Severed from the rest of the world, his quest culminates in a battle which will change the lives of the characters forever, and echo through all of time.


Lilith’s Tears will immerse readers in the mystical world of the island. Magic and darkness pervade the landmass, with its fabled immortality and the curse that has condemned countless generations to languish there. Adventure, mystery, romance and legend - Lilith’s Tears will both amaze and enchant.

“The author wasn’t simply telling a story. He created, constructed and described a panorama of complex characters, actions and locations, which were carefully directed to evolve in a manner reminding me of past masters of fiction.” Flying With Red Haircrow

Meet the Author

It's David, but everyone calls me DJ. I write novels, short stories, flash fiction, poems, and scripts for the radio, too. I have a short film in the works, so I'm looking forward to getting a bit of directing in there, too. Music is my other big "thing," I'm into rock and most things with guitar, and I enjoy making a bit of that too.


I have just completed an honours degree in English Literature and Language at the University of Liverpool, and will be studying for an MA in Renaissance and Eighteenth Century Literature next year. I have previously written a number of short stories and poems which have won competitions in writing magazines, as well as being featured in literary anthologies. My creative writing blog on tumblr is currently featured in the Writer’s Spotlight, a directory for the top writing blogs on the website.
