"This is a strong plot line with lots of room for development, excitement, action and suspense. I am seriously looking forward to reading Book 1 of the Soul Eaters series to see how Ms. McCalla develops the story, the characters and how she will more deeply incorporate the African pantheon of deities that are intertwined in the plot and the final outcome of this story."--Notebook Blogairy
"...Flee is a set up to a series with magic, romance and serious human issues. ... looking forward to reading more."--Diverse Pages
From the Author
What does a Black woman's horror story look like?
Origins of an African Elemental includes two difficult stories. This Soul Eater boxed set deals with issues of Trokosi slave wives, female genital mutilation, ritualistic sacrifice and domestic violence. This series mixes West African mythology and Norse mythology featuring vampire-like beasts. This Soul Eater boxed set was painful to write but I felt it was necessary to show controversial issues that impact African American women mixed with supernatural thriller elements to truly create a Black woman's horror story.
Friends and family members tell me that I have a "dark gene" when it comes to telling stories but I want readers to become up close and personal with the atrocities committed toward women. Some readers may find the serial killer's violence against female victims to be disturbing and well they should. My goal is to spur understanding and encourage action against these abuses. If you are a reader who enjoys sword and sorcery stories, then you will want to read this series highlighting strong Black women warriors.

Although there were elements in this set of books that were disturbing and on the dark side, overall I really enjoyed the stories. The story line and characters are well developed. The mixture of West African and Norse mythology was very interesting. The story holds your interest and keeps you reading until it's finished. This book set leads into the rest of the series and I can't wait to read them.
