Publisher Description

Nell Ingram and her team face a dire, supernatural evil in this newest thrilling paranormal procedural in the New York Times bestselling Soulwood series.

Nell Ingram draws her powers from deep in the earth, and uses them to help Psy-LED, the Psychometric Law Enforcement Division, which solves paranormal crimes. When a local vampire calls to report a dead body on her compound, Nell knows she and her team have to be ready for anything.

But the dead body is just the beginning of a mystery that involves supernaturals of all kinds, including some of the most powerful vampires in the country. As Nell gets closer to the truth, she begins to understand that the perpetrator is tracking her too—and that there is something personal about this crime. Something with roots that go almost as deep as those in Soulwood.

Can’t get enough!

Another enchanting read by Faith Hunter. Truly I can never get enough. Please never stop building these magnificent worlds and characters we’ve all fallen in love with.

What happened?

It’s the best I can give. I’ve read all of Jane Yellowrock and the other books in the Soulwood series multiple times. I don’t know what happened in this one.

First, it drags on. I’m not sure I’m going to be able to finish it because it spends so much time describing things in too much detail. Also, the writing became very short and choppy, like all the time? Pages and pages of exposition are all tell and no show.

Nell is now all-powerful and has no limitations. Some of the plot devices the author used to set up or resolve tension were implausible to the point of being unbelievable.

The best part about this series is definitely Nell’s character. Her growth and internal depth are spectacular, and I really appreciate Hunter tackling such a delicate and emotionally fraught subject as child marriage and the effects of childhood trauma. She did it with such sensitivity.

Because Nell’s character is so amazing, it kind of bugs me that this book tried to turn her into some kind of all-powerful being whose power is now world famous. One of the joys of Nell is that she’s not like Jane Yellowrock. She’s more normal, more relatable. The premise of her power in this book feels like an awkward fit with her character. Her power also made a hugely sudden jump and became much bigger than it was even in the previous book. All of a sudden, too, with no precipitating event. Suddenly she could just do everything and everyone wanted her power.

Also, as much as I appreciate Occam for being supportive and kind, and as grateful as I am for showing a healthy relationship, Occam is a little one dimensional. He’s just there for Nell. He doesn’t really have a personality outside of being there for Nell. For those reasons, I wish I could like him more than I do.
