Your normal everyday outcast, Eden avoids human contact whenever possible trying to keep her inner monster at bay. But sometimes her frustrations get the best of her and her overwhelming need to help the less fortunate. The Winslows are soul eaters. Most of the Blessed, as they call themselves, only take a part of the soul, others like Eden's father and cousin take and torture all of a soul leaving only the husk of a battered body behind. Eden's only salvation is her big bro Stellan.
That is until she meets Noah. They become fast friends, but Eden's desire for her bestie runs deeper than a potential romance, he has awakened her hunger. And Eden's determined not to give into her inner soul sucker. Her internal struggle is painful, wanting to eat souls yet not wanting to hurt people. And Eden doesn't think she can take that final step in her transition to full blown Blessed, taking a whole soul, killing a human.
But Noah's not your run of the mill human that Eden thinks, he's on assignment and determined to save Eden's soul.
Normally when I pick up an indie I expect it to be ruff around the sentences. But Samantha Young's Blood Will Tell was a nicely written story. The mythology of Blessed, Neith, and Ankh was a great escape from the more populated greek interpretations occupying shelves today. It's a nice YA that has dashes of familiar Adult PNR trends.Read more ›
Eden lives in a dysfunctional home where her father and cousin torture humans and her mother is emotionally unattached to her. Her brother Stellen, is her protector and best friend, but even he is one of the "Blessed" - those who steal the souls of humans. She is coming of age, herself, and must kill a human and steal his soul, only she has always been compassionate and cannot imagine killing someone. Noah is her best friend at school, but he has awakened the beast inside her and she fights herself from taking his soul. Full of action and adventure, but no romance.
The similarities of this story to "Lunarmorte" are that it is about a girl who doesn't know the extent of her powers but is (probably) destined to be the most powerful leader of her time. She has no living family left and is attracted to a strong man (Noah) that, at first, is more powerful than she is. Previously a loner, she is now surrounded by people who love her and admire her. Oh, and there are several enemies - making no-one trustworthy.
This book reminds me of a short story called "Reaper: A Soul Screamers Novella" by Rachel Vincent that I read as a free Kindle download.Read more ›
I found the relationship with her brother to be epically intriguing. They had such a strange relationship given their upbringing. And seeing Stratton have those dark urges, but try to quell them because of his love for his sister? I just couldn't figure out what to think. I mean, I actually really liked him and the way he protected Eden, so it made the whole thing so much more shades of gray if that makes any sense. I mean, he's a guy who is genuinely tempted by "the dark side", and yet because of how he feels for Eden, it actually gives him some sense of guilt...like he wants to be better for her. It kind of broke my heart and got to me in a way I wasn't expecting.
On the other side of things we have Noah, part of the "good side", and yet I wasn't always that impressed with him. As I'm beginning to notice in Ms. Young's paranormal series, there really isn't a strong romance aspect...it's really more about the building of the paranormal world and the conflict that arises in each. Personal preference? I miss the romance.Read more ›
