[Review] - Soul Weaver by Hailey Edwards
Author: Hailey Edwards
Series: Wicked Kin
Genre: Paranormal/Fantasy Romance
Release Date: August 7, 2012
I received this book through Joan Schulhafer Publishing& Media Consulting and NetGalley, in exchange for a honest review.
Summary: Since the accident that nearly took her life, Chloe suffers from acute agoraphobia. Living alone above her family’s bookstore, she spends restless nights terrified by strange visions . . . until a mysterious stranger appears and offers her salvation. Chloe is drawn to the ethereal, gorgeous Nathaniel—but her haunted soul warns her there is more to him than meets the eye.
An archangel who roams Earth collecting souls of the newly departed, Nathanial is the sole witness to the accident that should have taken Chloe’s life. Seduced by the purity of her soul, he defies Providence by saving her life. But his attempt at kindness marks Chloe for damnation, and makes her an unwitting pawn in a game of unholy ambition. Now together they must fight the demons of Hell itself—for a love that defies the boundaries of Heaven and Earth.
Thoughts: Nathaniel is a collector of souls. He witnesses a horrible accident. An accident that should have killed Chloe McCrea. But her plea - rips at this heart and he does the forbidden and saves her. A moment that marks her, essentially making her a target for demons.
Angel stories are quiet popular at the moment. Some I haven't enjoyed and others not so much. But with Soul Weaver, I loved it! The beginning was a bit slow for me. But ultimately the slow bits were worth it - to get to the heart of the story. The connection that Chloe & Nathaniel have is intriguing. I loved that Chloe owns a bookstore and her problems with anxiety were interesting. She felt real I think readers are gonna easily relate to her, I know I did. Between the characters and world building ...there is a lot to like about this story. Soul Weaver is a fresh take. It's both dark and vibrant. A book not to pass up.
Score: 4 Stars
