Important Author’s Note:
About the Series:
Books can be read in any order given that each book has its own romance. The numbers are just the order they are written in and should be read in if you want the story “in order”.
2. Save My Soul (full-length novel)
Zoe Winters writes quirky and sometimes dark paranormal romance and dark fantasy.
He set about his plan of vengeance on Angeline, and of righteous pay-back on the sinful in his community. Once a useless ‘man-of-the-cloth’ without power to change things, now a holy, sin-kicking vampire with a cause: to rid the planet of those who will not repent, while brainwashing those who wish to repent, into living better lives. I enjoyed this twist. Certainly, it is original to my knowledge. Apart from Priest: The Movie (but that was different – check my review here). The Priest was a rebel and an ass-kicking dude, but he was a vampire slayer – clearly not the same.
I imagine if you’re especially religious you may not enjoy this angle of the story. You’ve been warned 🙂
There was another much more interesting character I should mention – a strange and magical being who longs to die before another demon can kill her for her power, and use it in awful ways. Trouble is, no one but this demon seems strong enough to fully end her immortality. She was sad, sorrowful, but also radiated the strength of millennia.
So, for the heartbroken vampiress who lost her loving holy-man, the righteous preacher who has scores to settle, and for the sweet child lost in lingering life and pursued by a power-hungry demon on his path to destruction – Cheers Zoe. 🙂
Where I felt things let me down is more difficult to tell. I wanted to feel more attached to the characters, more invested in the romance, than I was. Nevertheless, this is only a novella and I think she packed in a lot of information and weaved a full web in such a short book, already. There was little room for more.
So there, you have it. Introduce yourself to this new series – see where the characters end up on their adventures. I wonder if the Holy-man and Angeline ever reunite or forgive one another? Mmm?
