It’s rare that you see such a blend of themes in one novel. As the story unfolds, the characters become richer and more complex, and we can’t help but enjoy watching them self-destruct, just as much as we love watching them evolve into powerful, awe inspiring forces. Readers will be struck by the admirable female lead and her strength to overcome adversity with all the cards stacked against her.
This is a world you’ll be hard pressed to leave, a world that is so detailed and intricately woven that you’ll yearn to return to it after reading the final paragraph. With its unforgettable images and breathtaking originality, THE SHADOW SOUL will keep you up all night and dreaming of the characters afterwards. Fans will be happy to know that this is just the beginning of a remarkable, spine tingling series."
Themes of mythology, individual courage and spirituality of self, theology, and the classic struggle of good versus evil, are but a few of the many strings which firmly pull at one's heart and soul, as the reader follows the harrowing ordeals of the unforgettable female warrior god, Captain Maiel.
Maiel is an amazing character compilation, it seemed to this reader, of the very essence of what it means to be a warrior spirit, embodying the strengths of goodness and tenacity, in the face of unspeakable horror, and a dread evil which seems to know no sense of limit. Facing such a foe, the reader learns, requires perhaps something more important than god-like abilities, and a supernatural strength.... it requires the power to believe, to REALLY believe, in one's own self. And that is perhaps the most potent weapon of them all.
Williams' skill at crafting dialogue, a so-real-you-can-almost-see-it vivid brushstrokes of setting and surroundings, and her very insight as a terrestrial human being to deep, universal truths, tell us that this is no writer of ordinary talent. Rather, this is a speaker, and thinker, with something to SAY. And, whilst were swept away in a world of fantastical imaginings, thrilling adventure, and epic struggle...we, at the end, are left with something far more than the joy of having read a ripping good yarn..... We're left with a little bit of Captain Maiel herself, in ourselves.
You owe it to yourself to read this book, in short. You'll be so very glad you did. And, be forewarned, you'll be very much looking forward to what comes next from Ms. Williams.
