I was drawn to this book by the cover and description, but I unfortunately just could not get into this book.  It was a little outside of my normal genre but something I thought would interest me, but alas it was not to be.  I just couldn't get into the story line and none of the characters spoke to me.

Wilhelm is the name of the gothic anti hero of this tale, who wishes he could keep his youth forever at the expense of selling his soul, not exactly an unfamiliar  trope.  A good wholesome Christian falls madly in love with him despite hersrlf, knowing it is all wrong. Many of her friends and devotees in her church and business meet rather horrible ends as Wilhelm continues to stalk her, even while they try to save her from destruction and ruin as he possesses her against her will. 

This then, is sort of like Dorian Grey or Dracula (he does imbibe in blood a little, it is a little confusing) meets fifty shades of grey. I am sure there is a readership around that likes that sort of thing, though personally I have less of a taste for the kind of romance that gluts on this special kind of sado/masochistic dynamic.

An intriguing premise let down by over-writing (specifically over use of adjectives), misspelling, clichéd characterisation and a stockpile of exclamation marks.

Thank you to NetGalley for the ARC.

Wilhelm by F.  Vawters McCloud.
Peyton Meryl, a strong-willed, powerful, spiritual leader in her community meets wise, intriguing, and mesmerizing handsome Wilhelm at a New Year’s Eve party. Soon after their encounter her perception of what’s truth and moral starts to change.

What if lies are now the truth? Everyone in Peyton’s life who shows goodness, finds that every secret they hid safely away, are exposed in Wilhelm’s “light”.

A slow but ok read.  Slow story. Wasnt sure about Characters.  3*.
