The World of Dark Souls
Anne Hope's books are unique in the paranormal romance genre. She has built a complex world encompassing Fallen Angels, Nephilim, soulless Watchers who protect humanity, Kleptopsychs who ingest souls, and soulless Rogues who belong in neither camp.
Although the world of Dark Souls can be complicated, it really all boils down to the basics of good storytelling. Her books are about compelling heroes, strong heroines, and insurmountable odds. They grab you, don't let you go, and stay with you long after you've read The End.
Read on for a review of Soul Chase.
Adrian has been mourning the loss of his love, Angie, for twenty-five years. (Read their story in Soul Thief.) He's just been going through the motions without her.
When a series of suspicious abductions comes to his attention, he tracks down the young woman who escaped the latest abduction attempt.
No, it's Emma. Who looks remarkably like Angie. And who has been dreaming of a man named Adrian all her life.
Emma is Angie, reincarnated.
But Emma is also special to the world of the Watchers, and the Kleptopsychs will stop at nothing to get her soul.
But Adrian refuses to lose her again.
A Poignant Story
I fell in love with Adrian in Soul Thief. He's protective and driven by his heart and his conscience, in spite of the fact that he doesn't have a soul. Your heart reaches out to him. You want him to finally be happy and at peace.
Emma is a heroine who has had a tough life running from the Kleptopsychs. She feels it has made her weak, because she's spent her life in hiding. But it has only made her stronger. She has the greater journey in this story, having to come to terms with many mind-bending, life-altering truths.
Romantic suspense tightens the story. Emma falls for Adrian. But how will she feel if Adrian loves the dead woman he sees in her, not Emma? Action heightens the suspense. Emma's mother is held hostage by the Kleptopsychs, leading to a dangerous and deadly mission to find her location. You'll stay up late to find out what happens.
Love lost and found, significant revelations, betrayal, great loss, and reconciliation all add up to a page-turner and a poignant love story. The ending is rewarding, and takes the story arc in a new direction. Don't miss it!
