REVIEW: The Evelyn Project by Kfir Luzzatto

"A Great Book! - Larry King" Evelyn’s father did everything that was in his power to save his dying daughter, black magic included. But when a century later his plea for help gets into the wrong hands, all hell breaks loose. Caught in the slippery battlefield between the Vatican and a cult that wants to change the past, a young Italian professor and a beautiful French aspiring actress are too busy running away from murder and conspiracy to let physical attraction develop into love. And it doesn’t help that Her Majesty's Secret Service decides to take an interest in what everybody else is doing and to pull some strings of its own. Quite the contrary, in fact…   Paperback (Amazon) | Kindle | Paperback (B&N) | Smashwords

RATING: 4 stars

REVIEW: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
What would you do to save your child, dying of an incurable disease? This book goes along the journey of a father's desperate measures to save his daughter's life. Not only does he try everything in his power, but then he employs black magic which extends to present day. But why would anyone from present day help someone who's been dead for 150 plus years? Who cares?
The present day people know the ramifications of being able to save someone's life from a hundred years ago, or even more. If you change the past, you change the future, possibly even changing the entire world. What a power trip! But does the experiment work? Does she live? I'm not going to spoil it for anyone.
I'd love to see a continuation of this story however. The possibilities with it are endless and I found this book to be very well-written and exciting.

Meet the Author:

Kfir was born and raised in Italy, and moved to Israel as a teenager. He acquired the love for the English language from his father, a former U.S. soldier and WWII veteran, a voracious reader and a prolific writer. With a PhD in chemical engineering and a long family history that he needs to live up to, Kfir work as a patent attorney and heads the patent law firm that was established by his great-grandfather in Milan, Italy, in 1869. Kfir lives in Omer, Israel, with his full-time partner, Esther, their four children, Michal, Lilach, Tamar and Yonatan, and the dog Elvis. Writing has always been Kfir's passion and for almost four years he wrote a weekly "Patents" column in Globes (Israel’s financial newspaper), which also yielded his only (if he can help it) non-fiction book, THE WORLD OF PATENTS, (a not-so-boring tale of what patents are about, in Hebrew), which was published in 2002 by Globes Press. Kfir loves writing short stories but has too many novels waiting to be written (and possibly not enough years ahead of him to write them all), so now he mostly writes full-length fiction. His other passion is working with other authors on stories he loves and that's how he wound up serving on the editorial board of The Harrow Press as Anthology Editor. You can read about Kfir's books here. He loves them all, but never had greater fun than when working on “HAVE BOOK WILL TRAVEL”, a YA fantasy that he wrote together with his son, Yonatan.
