What is about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
Daphne is a Soul Reaver. A monster. A killer. A thief in the dark.
Feeding off the feelings of strangers, she lives in self-induced solitude, deeming it safest for everyone. Once a year, siphoning emotions isn’t enough, and Daphne must steal a soul to survive, taking the owner’s life in the process. With twelve souls already taken, and counting, Daphne walks a razor’s edge between madness and sanity every time she is forced to kill. On the night of her hunt, she finds the perfect soul, dark to its depths, seemingly beyond saving. Too late does she realize this soul is neither truly dark nor defenseless… As the hunter becomes the hunted, she tumbles into the world she was born to be a part of but never knew existed. Will Daphne find the answers she’s been looking for her whole life? What about things she always wanted but never thought possible; companionship, friends and even love? Who can she trust in a world filled with monsters?***Urban Fantasy with a dash of Paranormal Romance***First Book in a Series***Trigger Warning; mentions of self-harm***
This entire world is unique and inspiring, written in lush tones and immersive notes that paint a new reality – even if it is sometimes confusing. I ran to catch up to the characters, learning about them and their abilities on the fly – which suited as that was how the FMC learned most things as well. While she is part of this world, her exposure has been limited till a chance encounter with air demon drags her into the shadowy truth that has always surrounded her. It’s fascinating and well done.
Third Person, Multiple POV
Single love interest, gets steamy towards end.
- Well written.
- Well edited for word usage and punctuation.
- Characters are fully realized.
- Ends with more questions and few answers, as all first books should.
- Some scenes feel redundant or filler: only reason it lost a star.
I really enjoyed this introductory novel and look forward to reading Book 2 soon (also available on KU.) I recommend to fans of Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romances.
