Review

"Really imaginative world, compelling story-line and interesting central characters." Amy Bird, Author of YOURS IS MINE

"There are some beautiful characters in Soul Taken that tick all the YA boxes and the style is very chatty, much like a secret shared by your best friend." Nicky Peacock, Author of BAD BLOOD

"Trust me when I promise you, this book will leave you biting your nails with all it's twist and turns!" Dark Novella

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.

Quick & Dirty: This was a unique story filled with great characters, an engaging plot, and sweet romance. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that likes fun clean paranormal books.

Opening Sentence: "Is it ready now?" Dylan asked for the tenth time in twenty minutes.

The Review:

Bridget's Thoughts:

Maggie has been a Soul Collector for the last 100 years. There's no denying that Maggie is the best and she is hoping that she will soon be promoted to The Guard. The Guard were an elite group of souls. Soldiers that protected humans and participated in top secret missions, earning collective respect from everyone in the After. To prove that she is a fully capable of being a guard she has to help them find a missing soul, but something goes terribly wrong and Maggie gets stuck inside a human body, a place she hasn't been in a long time.

Maggie has taken over Ally's body and she is a very important descendant of the Caelestium. The Caelestium are the original creatures of the after realm and many centuries ago they mated with humans to create the Prognatum. There are only a few Prognatum's left and they are closely watched by the guard until they turn 18, at which time they go through a transformation and join the Guard as special operatives for the Caelestium. Ally's birthday is only a few days away and if they aren't able to reunite her body and her soul by that time, Ally's soul may be lost forever. Maggie doesn't have any memories of her past life so being human is a whole new thing to her. As she tries to save Ally's soul, old memories start to surface and Maggie's not sure if she is ready to remember her past.

In this wonderfully imaginative book, you follow the story of Maggie; A 17year old soul collector who has been dead for over one hundred human years. Her job, would you believe is to collect souls, and she also trains the new soul collectors that have recently shifted off the mortal coil. She becomes trapped in a teenager’s body during a mission to find a stolen soul; this is where the story really begins. This really is an original book about the afterlife and I have to say; impressed isn’t even the word! Katlyn Duncan welcomes you to her amazing ‘After’ where things are not as you thought they should be. Her incredible imagination really creates something new and fresh about the afterlife and I have to say that I am genuinely excited to read the rest in ‘the life after’ trilogy. I think you will be too. This is a great book which anyone can read, regardless of age. *****

What an amazingly pleasant surprise SOUL TAKEN was! Lately I've gone into reading paranormal books from new authors with a certain amount of trepidation; perhaps because past authors have set the bar so high, or maybe because there's such a wide range between the epically great paranormal books and the disastrously awful attempts. I can say with absolute certainty that SOUL TAKEN was a phenomenal example of the former. Wow! Talk about a completely unique concept with tons of new ideas, roles, and characters that took me on an exhilarating adventure.

Katlyn Duncan created a world of the After - souls with jobs ranging from soul collecting to guarding/guiding certain members of the living. Besides learning about all of the different jobs one might hold in the After, there were also a ton of characters to meet and get to know. But you know what? Even though SOUL TAKEN had to set an entire stage of new people and concepts, I never once felt like I was getting a history lesson, never felt lost, and I was completely enthralled every step of the way!

I LOVED the characters in SOUL TAKEN - from Maggie who I rooted for even when I found out things that made her motives questionable, Jackson who I wanted even when I worried he might be one of the bad guys, and Cooper who I didn't know whether to love or hope he'd get out of the way so I could keep my eyes on Jackson... I loved them all. And then there was the action and the story - I am a paranormal romance fan all the way - and though this first book in the series only hinted at romance - I never felt like I was missing out - the action and storyline were just THAT GOOD!

SOUL TAKEN was a solid 4.

This is a paranormal romance thankfully in the YA genre. I've seen some reviews refer to the beings in the afterlife in this book as angels, but the author is fairly careful of not calling them angels. I liked that about this book as I'm not a huge fan of angels. (Except Patch). So I really had no idea what this book was about when I started reading except from what the synopsis says which is a bit vague.

The characters- Maggie is the one we see the story through and she's a bit cold at first. She's been a soul collector for at least 100 years so most of her humanity is gone. It's only natural that she seems detached as she goes about her job. But in a somewhat contradictory move, she is training the youngest of the soul collectors, children, despite her lack of humanity. Of course, that's what makes her the best soul collector. Still it doesn't seem that she'd be exactly nurturing with kids that have to collect souls and match them with their True Souls, a frightening task I would think for a child. But when Maggie is sucked into Ally's body she has to pretend to be her and has a crash course in being human again. She has feelings and memories that she's lacked for 100 years. And she has a complicated relationship with one of the guards, Cooper, who had been watching over Ally since she was born.

There are other characters but even naming them will give too much away.

The world- This is my one problem with the novel. I felt lost in the After Life world. There is very little world building and while I don't like to waste a lot of time with that, I do need some of it for some understanding. I did not get the concept of the True Soul. (It's explained in my interview with the author). I didn't understand what Maggie and Cooper's world looked like.
