Editorial Reviews


"The author has a gift for crafting striking images ... (and) strikes an impressive balance with the dialogue. The overall result is a satisfyingly realistic, pleasurable read ... consistently evocative ... (with) sharp characterization, and haunting, gorgeous imagery."
- Kirkus Reviews

"Riveting ... The Soul Retrieval will take readers on a journey filled with mystery, suspense, love and hope ...The book tells two stories, one of the past and one of the present ... When the two stories collide in the present, the reader is placed on a roller coaster of emotions."
- Pacific Book Review
 "A masterpiece ... I look forward to much more from Ann W. Jarvie."
- Paranormal Romance & Authors That Rock
 "Enticingly written, Jarvie creates a plot designed with several 'shock and awe' moments ... But most of all, it portrays the boldness within to seek inspiration and truth."
- C. Rodriguez of Readers' Favorite
"An amazing book! This author will make you escape right into the story and characters before you even realize you're there! While reading you will find yourself searching within yourself as well..."
- Undercover Book Reviews
 "The writing is top notch with some charm thrown in."
- Lilac Reviews
 "You can tell that Ann W. Jarvie put a lot of love, sweat and tears into the making of this book. It flows beautifully and involves the reader in the journey."
- K. Bennett of Readers' Favorite
 "All of the characters are well drawn, and I enjoyed the spiritual and mystical undertones that made me pause and reflect ... Highly enjoyable and one that I would recommend."
- M. Madhavan of Readers' Favorite
"Excellent sharing and explanation of Apache words and phrases throughout. Author has tremendous talent for weaving in a comfortable and realistic layer of language explanation, with great thought to making the reader comfortable with the language. Well done. Beautiful consideration of the reader and  complete handling of language and dialect. Impressive.
Excellent sense of movement throughout the book, in people and in objects and breeze. Author has a talent for writing movement, and especially excels at bringing dialogue scenes more to life with good character movement and gesturing. Well done.
Settings are well realized and layered, with plenty of sensory details so that each scene has a 'home' that we can see, and one that affects the characters' mindsets just like our own environments affect our moods and interactions. Nice instincts by the author in this.
Some beautiful imagery throughout, such as the Walking Dead imagery/analogy in which it is said she is missing parts of her soul. Very intriguing concept, as most people would love an opportunity to reclaim or rescue the missing parts of themselves, something they think is essential for healing or for forward momentum. Excellent work.
'You cannot heal what is not there' is one of the best gems of the book, a true learning moment that sticks with the reader as a valuable take-away.
Nice imagery of the ashes in the desert cleansed by the heat. This also brings comfort to the reader who may be dealing with grief, knowing that cleansing of what remains is still possible. Very nice."
- Judge, Writer's Digest, 3rd Annual Self-Published E-Book Awards
