After-life just got a lot more complicated
Maggie is a Soul Collector. It’s her job to transport souls from the Living Realm to the After – but during a mission to find a stolen soul, she ends up stuck in a teen mean girl’s body.
Trapped, Maggie’s soul is catapulted into Ally’s life – and the human world she hasn’t experienced for one hundred years. But, as a descendant of the most powerful beings in the After, Maggie must rescue Ally before the girl’s soul dies…
To survive, Maggie must uncover devastating secrets – because with one soul taken by a terrifying enemy, Maggie’s could be next!
One of the biggest joys of YA fiction is that the market is wide and the readers ravenous – and Soul Taken is a tasty morsel indeed. It not only gives us an interesting new concept of Reapers and the business of soul recycling, but also a believable and uncomplicated world to visit. It was an easy read from start to finish and invites you into an intriguing, well written story every time you turn on your e-Reader. It has a steady pace and enough of a mystery to keep you reading well past your bedtime!
I know we shouldn’t judge books by their covers but we all secretly do, so – from an aesthetics point of view the front cover is bright and attractive and encapsulates the overall feel of the book. Fresh and beautiful.
Looking at the plot from a writer’s perspective, it could have been all too easy to complicate this story with unnecessary and indulgent side-lines – but Katlyn keeps it effortlessly on-track making it a seamless read. There are some beautiful characters in Soul Taken that tick all the YA boxes and the style is very chatty, much like a secret shared by your best friend.
I’d give this book 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend it to anyone. Come on Katlyn, let’s be ‘aving book 2!
