Love. Power. Control.

The lure of having it all is strong, and when 17-year-old Seth is given the opportunity, how can he say no? And why should he? With nothing to lose and everything to gain, Seth is an easy target for the evil that invades his soul.

But love is a powerful force, and despite everything, Dani knows that the boy she fell in love with is hiding somewhere behind the darkness in his eyes, and she’s not about to give up so easily.

Time is running out and instead of having control, Seth is quickly losing it. Dani must rely the truth in her heart to pull the dark force out of Seth. But will the power of love and faith be enough to conquer evil? Or is it too late for both of them?

One boy.

One girl.

One 1500-year-old soul determined to come between them... permanently.

our thoughts

First I would like to thank Diana Murdock for allowing me to be sucked into her wonderful world of writing. I would have never picked out a book like Souled, but I am glad that I had the chance to be able to read and review it. It was a new spin on a plot, buying a soul, that really made Souled an interesting read.

The first half is from Seth’s POV and you get to know him and his love for Dani, his loyalty to Justin, and the pressures that are rolling around in his head. He is, in general, a good guy but with all these pressures is what pushes him into buying a soul. A strive to be better, a want to keep Dani by his side, and a longing for his father to be home more often. But once the sell is made, you start to read the changes that are happening in him. What I didn’t realize, until later, is that the italicized chapters between the chapters of the main characters have just as an important plot. You learn about the soul’s past life.

What I loved was that half way through the book, the POV switched to Dani. What a wonderful idea because now the reader can really feel how much all of this is hurting her and what she is willing to do to get Seth back now that she is realizing that it is no longer Seth in his body.

The final chapter (I KNEW IT WAS COMING!) is told from Alyx’s POV; a new friend to the group. When she finally realizes what has happened, the book ends, and I was left mouthing “OH NO!” (it was late, I didn’t want to wake anyone up.)
