Plus, when the chips are down, a woman's got to do what a woman's got to do, amirite?
Even if that means going down a path she'd never imagined herself taking before.
That said, Callie is growing nicely into her powers. And by nicely, I mean she hasn't killed herself with them yet. Considering how her "mentor" mentors her, that's pretty impressive in itself. Be that as it may, circumstances keep testing her and she continues to find new facets to what she can do with the magic simmering inside her.
I kinda love Callie and Derek's relationship, btw. He's 100% in her corner and he's not afraid to growl that at anyone who crosses their path. Considering the things they're forced to do to protect themselves and the ones they love, that means the world to Callie. Also, Derek sees the wisdom in letting Callie do her thing when situations call for it, even though it means she might be in danger. Callie has the ability to protect herself and Derek trusts her enough to do just that. *heart eyes*
Gem City is dangerous and deadly and all sorts of other things and I'm enjoying my time here. Souls, a little bloodshed, and some darkly intricate plots have made this series a blast so far. I'm ready to see where the future takes Callie and Derek!
-Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal
This book is full of spoilers and I don’t want to give anything away. If you are new to the Soul Charmer series…in Gem City, your can rent souls when you want to go out and do bad things so it doesn’t stain your own soul and you can still rise to heaven when you die. Callie Delgado is just a regular girl trying to make her way in Gem City when her brother gets in deep with a drug dealer and Callie is forced into making a deal with the devil to bail him out. Callie always puts family first, no matter what. She starts for the Soul Charmer and meets the very gruff enforcer Derek. Murder, mayhem, and sexy times ensue.
Now on to Lost Souls, at the end of the last book you know that someone close to Callie is missing and she knows who is responsible. In trying their best to locate this person, Callie and Derek discover someone new is renting out souls in Gem City. There are seriously so many things I could say but I don’t want to spoil this book for anyone! Callie is starting to understand how to use her magic in this book and it’s awesome to see. She’s starting to realize that she always puts family first but they never put her first. I love that you really see Callie grow in this book, she is learning to take care of herself and the people of Gem City, with Derek always by her side. I love the romance between Callie and Derek, he is always there for her, never letting her down or putting her down like her family does.
If you haven’t read the first two books in the Soul Charmer series, Borrowed Souls and Rogue Souls, go read them now! The world building is fantastic, the romance is sweet and sexy, and Callie is becoming a true badass!
This book picks up where the last one left off, with Callie desperately searching for Nate who has kidnapped her mother. The mission is especially pressing since the guy cut off some of her mom’s fingers and sent them as a warning. Callie needs to return the soul she ripped out of him or her mother will pay the price.
If that’s not weighing heavily enough, the Soul Charmer has disappeared. That might seem like a good thing, since he is most assuredly not a good dude, but without him, no one is attending the soul well. Plus, there is a new soul pusher in town AND someone has stolen some really bad souls, and Gem City needs Callie and Derek to keep the scales balanced.
The story moves well and I totally bought into the reasons why Callie had to do all the things she did. But what I love best about these books is how well Chelsea Mueller has drawn two flawed, yet essentially good characters, and made me believe in their need and love for one another. As I’ve said before, Derek is my favorite kind of hero. He’s muscle and he does bad things that most people cannot see beyond. But Callie doesn’t see a thug when she looks at him. She sees comfort, protection, and home. And so do I! (*swoon*) — I want MOAR of these two together.
The secondary characters are all love-to-hate. Like Callie’s mother and brother. Man, these two are both just awful. The other guys in the Soul Charmer crew. Nate. Pretty much everyone, except maybe Derek’s brother (and he’s still kind of a DB at times.)
Then, there’s the world-building. The entire concept of borrowing souls is so clever and original. And we dive a little deeper into the how’s and why’s of it all here, which is cool. But beyond that, I dig the vibe in general. In my head, Gem City is this dark, dirty, asphalt and dirty puddle kind of place–and it just adds such great ambiance to the story.
Mueller does a great job setting up the next installment of the series. I am excited to see where it goes next, though it’s getting harder and harder to see a scenario where Callie and Derek are ever going to get out. I’ll keep reading, though, to find out.
