Soul Charmer, Book 2
Synopsis: Callie Delgado volunteered to apprentice to Gem City’s Soul Charmer. He’d forced the soul magic ability into her, but now it was hers. She’d learn to control her body’s reaction to rented souls or go up in flames. Literally.
She exchanged her chance to escape the darker side of Gem City to save her brother. Now she needs to keep him sober and safe, try to mend family ties, and avoid the mobsters who have too much interest in the magic of borrowing souls.
But when bodies begin dropping at the Soul Charmer’s door, it’s up to Callie and her partner Derek to track down the person killing soul renters. The Charmer wants retribution, but Callie is determined to get justice even if it means putting herself directly in the sights of the murderer.
If she wants to stay on the Soul Charmer’s good side, Callie must confront her enemies head-on and learn to command rogue souls.
…and hope someone she loves doesn’t become the next victim.
Review: I liked the first volume and I was curious to discover the rest of the story. We find ourselves quickly after the end of the previous volume to follow the adventures of your dear heroine and her sidekick Derek.
As she tries to figure out what she’s become as the Souls Charmer’s apprentice, Callie is going to face a new thorny problem. Indeed, she discovers the body of a young boy in front of the shop. Is it a threat against the Charmer? It is up to our two heroes to find the answer and especially to find the culprits and Callie is determined to understand what is happening!
I really enjoyed learning more about this world, about the souls and some of the secrets, although I’m sure there is still more to discover. Our heroes will have to face a new enemy, a harder one to apprehend and new problems will appear.
As I said it was again a very nice reading and I am sure that the following will bring us new surprises!
