Soulless Review

Title: Soulless
Author: Amber Garr
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal
Expected Release Date: August 23, 2014
Publisher: Hallowed Ink Press

When it comes to death and love...only one is guaranteed.

Four decades ago Nora died. A tragic event for someone so young; however, four decades ago Nora was also given a second chance to walk among the living.  A Death Warden with a mysterious past, her job is to escort the newly expired towards the light, battling with the Soul Hunters who want the freshly dead to help with their own evil purposes buried in the dark. When Nora’s charges suddenly become targets, she realizes that the hunters are after far more than just souls. A shift in power between good and evil threatens to change everything, risking the lives of the only family Nora has ever known.

This book is one you simply should not let pass by.  The story of Nora who is a death warden, also known as Grim Reapers, is one which will grab you by the seat of your pants.  Theron who once was the love of her second life, and has now gone over to the dark side to become a soul hunter.  

Now unlike other books of this category, you know reaper stories. This book doesn't dwell much on the actual reaping of souls, it is more about Nora and how her life as a warden is affected by Theron's move to the dark side, and how her life is changing.

This is a very short story and it didn't take me long to completely read it, and as I turned the last page, shout NO YOU CAN'T LEAVE ME LIKE THAT!  Yes it ends on one heck of a cliff hanger.  Will she, Won't she? Well we'll have to wait to find out in the next book I suppose.  I am not known for my patience and hanging on a cliff tends to aggravate me!

I think this is a wonderful start to a series and a very quick read. If you like angels, reapers, life altering changes then this is definitely the book for you!  I give it 5 stars for the fast pace and the easy to read and enjoyable story.  I can't wait to see what the next book in the series will bring.
