I have only one criticism, and you know? I'm not even really sure it counts as one. I think Zoe's style has matured a lot since Kept, and it shows because for most of the story, this book didn't feel like it was even written for the same universe as the Book 1. Except, it's not supposed to. Totally different setting. And we expect to have other places feel different right? The world of the Preternaturals is expanding, branching out. I can appreciate that, especially when we found out about-but no, that's a spoiler.
I did see the HUGE TWISTY PLOT TWIST, that I also absolutely WON'T be sharing with any of you spoiler-whores, coming but I did so with a gleeful chuckle and lots of evil palm rubbing. It made the whole story come full-circle in a spectacular way, in my humble opinion. So it makes me feel smart when I could say ahead of time "Oooooh! I see what you're doing here."
There were other things that I didn't see coming though. Things that I D'ohed for not even thinking about.
I'm going to warn you though. After reading this book, you're going to wish you had a significant other around. Sufficed to say, Save my Soul reeks of sexual tension, and what a delicious reek it is.Luc definitely has a spot on my Favorite Heroes list. One that I have to get around to re-writing one of these days. Anna too (Heroines, obviously). Ms. Winter's writes brilliant snark. Her heroines might get tossed around, betrayed, and have their lives do a complete 360 but they always have a sense of humor about it. Probably to keep from going insane like the rest of us probably would if we were faced with the same events. Maybe.
Something I wanted to mention also was how much I loved how Winters wrote the friendship between Anna and Tam, one of the supporting cast. It was refreshing for once to read about a female friendship that didn't involve lots of backstabbing and BS similar in office politics. They weren't friends just because girls aren't supposed to be mean so anyone you have even the vaguest familiarity with counts as a `friend'. They gave a damn about one another, and didn't secretly wish to be anywhere but in the others presence. They enjoyed one another's company. Like the way it should be. Their banter made me chuckle, more often than not because it reminded me of the way I am with my friends, and thank you Zoe for portraying what a healthy female friendship is like.
I'm hoping Tam might show up again, since there seems to be a running trend for Zoe to give supporting characters their own books. But either way? I don't think I'll be disappointed by a Zoe Winters read.
Right away, unexpected things start happening. Whoever--whatever is in the house is trying to get her attention.
But this is not The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. The "whoever" turns out to be Luc, an incubus, a demon who feeds on sexual energies. He's been trapped by a witch, the previous owner of the house on Cranberry Lane. She said she loved him. They could have been together forever. If only she would have given him her soul.
Now Luc is focused on Anna, and she finds herself as inexorably drawn to the demon as she was to the house. And then more. He says all it would take for happily ever after is her soul. He takes her heart, he's campaigning for her body, can she allow herself to be taken over completely by this...man?
This all sounds like a pretty dramatic story, and that's there. But the true delight comes in the snarky wit of the characters and the sometimes madcap humor with which Winters delivers the tale. Save My Soul brings its otherworldly elements to shimmering life in a way that will delight any fan of the paranormal as Anna turns to gypsies, ghost hunters, and the Holy Catholic Church in her attempts to try to evict the incubus from her home. Before it's too late.
In Save My Soul, I received my first introduction to the incubus demon. This was quite an intriguing creature for me since I'm all about the smut. The smuttier the better and reading about a demon that survives off the sexual energy of females seemed really hot!
Anna Worthington has just returned to her childhood town of Golatha Falls, Georgia to settle some affairs from her late father's estate. Not wanting to stay in town for longer than she needs to, Anna starts to head out but decides to take a detour down Cranberry Lane to look at a house that she has been in love with since childhood. The house is for sale and while taking a tour of the house, Anna feels compelled to buy it.
Soon after moving in Anna starts to hear things go bump in the night. It starts out with objects getting moved around, her television being turned on automatically and seemingly stuck on the Food Network channel. She had heard the house was haunted by a ghost named Beatrice and just assumes that is who is haunting her. But then one night during an attempted date rape, Luc appears out of nowhere to defend her against her assailant. To her horror she realizes that she is not being haunted by a harmless old lady but a scary demon.
Luc is an incubus demon who has been trapped in the house ever since a witch named Beatrice cursed him 50 years ago. He and Beatrice had been lovers but Beatrice could not accept Luc's need to feed from other females. Their love affair ends tragically in death leaving Luc to haunt the various families that live in the Cranberry Lane house or live alone when the house is empty.
Luc falls in love with Anna. He bonds her to him to keep her safe from other incubi and won't allow her to leave him for extended periods of time. He flirts with Anna and taunts her shamelessly but she still will not give in to his numerous attempts at seduction. Anna knows that if she doesn't figure out how to break the curse that she will end up becoming another meal for Luc.
To buy herself some time, Anna brings back a harem of prostitutes for Luc to feed from. For real? Yes. That move was laugh out loud funny to me. `Here honey, here's some other kitty cat for you to play with. Now leave me the hell alone.' Well played, Anna! I almost felt sorry for Luc. He wasn't even a little excited at the prospect of having five live-in lovers. All he wanted was Anna.
"You know it could be so good. You have to feel this thing between us. Those other girls, they're just food. It doesn't mean anything. You're the one I want."
She rolled her eyes and chucked a pillow at him. "Yes, the male argument from time immemorial. They don't mean anything. It's just sex. Bull****. I told you I cannot and will not share." ~ Luc & Anna
Save My Soul had a lot going on in it. There were several quirky characters that added depth to the story and Zoe Winters did a great job with the dialogue in this book. The snarky banter between all the characters was humorous and I loved the interactions between Luc and Anna. I was rooting for them throughout the book as I really did like Luc a lot. A whole host of supernatural characters tries to help Anna break Beatrice's curse. But in this twisted ending, Anna is the only one who can save Luc.
Save My Soul gets 4 out of 5 stars.
