Book Description

Thrilling, enthralling, and tragic, Soul Catcher is a love story of epic proportions. A mysterious man, whose identity is a secret and his face unknown, is an outcast and exiled on The Continent, where he sticks to the shadows and appears to be dead in the eyes of the world. His devastating past has made him bitter and sarcastic, mean and insulting, and he chooses to live a criminal life rather than one of virtue. But when he is stabbed fatally in the chest, he is forced to seek help from a nature priest, but his aid comes at a price—to rescue a woman. Against his reservations and protests, he travels to a guarded city and rescues her from the Prisoner’s Circle, and as soon as she sees his frame, cloaked and covered in weapons, along with his hostile attitude and malicious words, she is wary of him. Soon, the man becomes fond of his annoying traveling companion until she betrays him in the biggest way—by looking into his Soul Catcher. She discovers his true identity—a man she has met before.

2.0 out of 5 stars Expect Harlequinn type romance with a touch of fantasy December 13, 2013
By Jessi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's possible I was mistaken about the genre of this book when I first downloaded it. What I expected was high fantasy, what I got was more akin to Harlequinn romance.

While it's still a fantasy, set in an imaginary world with a small amount of supernatural, the emphasis is definitely on the romance and the plot centers on the relationship between the two main characters. Approximately the last third of the bookconsists almost exclusively of graphic sex scenes and the villain is more just a common foe than a present threat with most of his evil having been done in the past as opposed to making the reader worry what he might do next.

I myself prefer fantasy with a touch of romance without graphic sex scenes, but if you like your smut with a touch of fantasy, you may enjoy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Young Writer Scores September 9, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In SOUL CATCHER, E. L. Todd tells a gripping tale in a fascinating world populated with interesting characters. But her greatest strength is that she's a master of manipulating readers' emotions. From the beginning, I couldn't put the book down. Tension continued to build all the way to the end. At times I was frustrated, nearly apoplectic, near tears, yet enjoyed delightfully written love scenes. This is the first volume of a trilogy - I can hardly wait for volume two. Todd is young and this five-star effort is her first novel. As good as she is, she's not as good as she's going to be. Keep an eye on this rising young star!

3.0 out of 5 stars okay story but lost me at the first fight scene. September 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The premise of this story is alright. But the fight scenes were bad. It might be O.C.D on my part but the use of weapons mechanics was just horrid. For example he throws a knife and follows up with a bow. A knife short to medium range when thrown. A bow Long range. I know it is fantasy and an author can do what they want, but this kicked me out of enjoyment mode. I limped along trying to get back into the story but in the end failed.
If this book is still free when you read this review then give the book a try, if not then read the sample before buying.
My issue with this book could also be that the previous book I read was by Anne Rice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Story - Weak Characters November 29, 2013
By Sidney
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good enough story to sit and read.

Beginning, Middle, and End there isn't anything that I relentlessly hated but then there wasn't anything that I thoroughly enjoyed, either.

The only thing in this story that I started to really dislike was the characters and how they change so quickly.

Accacia is described as beautiful - and it is mentioned a number of times. If it's not her beautiful looks it's how honey-like her voice is. Her flaws lie in how she has been emotionally and physically abused.

It is mentioned that Aleco is a man who is alone, often hidden from the world. A man who trusts no one, who is always on guard and is an elite fighter who's skills are unsurpassed. His past haunts him.

Very quickly - VERY QUICKLY... Accacia becomes reliant on Aleco and trusts him - just as Aleco trusts her. This "trust" changes into a weird sort of friendship that, transforms into lust and love.

The relationship bothers me something terrible.

A described "strong" character turns into a teary, reliant, trusting man in very few pages. Accacia doesn't do anything all that profound to gain his trust (in fact, she did things that should have made Aleco not trust her at all) and after showing him affections she pushes him away and his response to it is begging, groveling!

Okay, maybe the characters REALLY bugged me.

I tried to like Aleco - and I did at the VERY beginning - and I tried to like Accacia - that didn't happen - but these two characters just weren't interesting to me. As much as a sob story that Accacia had and I felt zero pity. As terrible as the Duke was to Aleco I just did care...

A decent story with weak characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not for a military fantasy fan September 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a military and dark epic fantasy fan. I've downloaded this book because i liked the writing in the parts i've read and i liked the cover.

Writing : 4.5/5
Short but very good, and quite vivid usualy, descriptions of people, places and events. The author chooses to tell only scenes that advance the story, and avoids writting about long walks in the country or in the towns.

Fighting related scenes : 1/5
(See the spoilers 1 below)

Romance: ?
I guess this is supposed to be a romance story, though the characters in the beginning behave like 14 years old teens. And then, when they escape from prison and are safe for a while, the reader learns why the main character was imprisoned. Thats when i quitted this book.
(See the spoilers 2 below)

I quit reading at page 60. This is not my kind of book. After the clumsy fighting scenes i thought at least it would have been a cute romance story.
3 stars.

-------- SPOILERS ----------

--------SPOILERS 1----------

The male character: Aleco, a fugitive and a trained warrior and expert killer.
The female character: Accacia.

When a priest sends Aleco to free Accacia from a castle prison, he doesnt tells Aleco her name or how she looks like but he gives him a kind of an amulet and he tells Aleco to bring him the woman who wears a similar amulet.

Entering a prison full of guards and freeing a chained woman prisoner, the prison located inside a guarded castle and the castle being inside a city surrounded by guarded walls, is like a walk in the park for Aleco.

More About the Author


My journey to this profession was slightly unorthodox. I received my bachelor's degree in biological sciences, worked as an award-winning researcher, and worked various jobs to pay the bills. While I enjoyed every moment of this adventure, it wasn't my passion. I've been writing since I was a young girl and have read anything that I can get my hands on. When people ask me what my favorite book is, I always respond, "All of them."

After I showed my work to my closest friends and gained their confidence, I realized that this is something I could commit my life to, something that I love. I never imagined--dreamed--that I could make a living as a writer. This is the greatest profession that I ever could have asked for, and I am so thankful for the support from everyone in my life. How many other jobs let you work in your pajamas?


I'm very grateful that I've had success with my various series. The Forever and Always Series is very close to my heart. I realize all the characters are fictitious, but in reality, they are real people living in my mind...as creepy as that sounds.

The Hawaiian Crush Series, The Essence Series, The Soul Saga, and the Southern Love Series are all also extensions of who I am, just played out in word. It's the greatest job in the world to explore different places and people and actually get to write about it. What makes it even better is when people love reading it.

When I receive fan mail through email, my website, or on Goodreads, I'm extremely flattered and humbled that people take the time out of their lives to compliment my work. I appreciate all the love and support. Without it, I would be nothing. I really would.

With an infinite number of ideas in my mind, I will continue to write as long as people wish. I'm just grateful I have such a wonderful audience.

People have asked me personal questions about my life. I'm flattered that people show any interest, especially since I'm not very interesting, but here are a few things you may not know about me:

I'm a lefty. But I also write upside down (not on the computer.) I'm pretty weird...

I hate strawberries but love them in my oatmeal.

I have an unusual obsession with dogs, cats, and all pets, but I don't own one...yet. Let's see what the hubby says.

I worked in a lab for a long time then became a high school science teacher. I loved my job very much, and adored my students. But writing is my dream job, and I was fortunate enough to pursue it.

My closest friends are the people I met in high school, but I've made even closer connections with peers from college. And now I'm fortunate enough to have some amazing author friends.

I love sweets. I love sweets. It's a sickness....

My favorite band (currently) is Mumford and Sons. I've placed a few of their lyrics in my novels because they are totally awesome.

Connected by the Sea (Hawaiian Crush #1) has some factual knowledge as a basis. Years ago, when my boyfriend took me to the aquarium, we stared at the seahorses for a long time. That's when he locked his pinky with mine and said, "Seahorses mate for life. Will you be mine?" Super cute! I know!

Only for You was originally called MegaShake. For those of you who've read it, you'll understand why.

And I don't share milk products with people...that's also something I incorporated into my books.

That's all I can think of...but that may have been too much information.

Thanks for all the support. You totally rule!(less)
