I was hooked to this book from page 1. It started out right away in the middle of action and didn't waste a single second not filling you in, so that you weren't confused as to what was going on and why. I was amazed how easily I felt like I was in the middle of the action. The author did a fantastic job in his wording to make you feel like you are a part of the story. The people in this book were so kind, so understanding, and had such an open mind to anything and everything that it was almost unbelievable. I guess when you see wings on someone landing on earth, you kind of have to believe what you see! It was fun in the first part of the book not knowing who the angel and who the demon was between the two main characters. I kept guessing and as I read on, I kept changing my mind back and forth. When it was finally revealed, I wasn't surprised but I was at the same time. The author also did a really good job with the character development and he really made me feel for the two teenagers and made me want to fight for them.
Overall, I loved this book. Normally I do not re-read books after I've read them but I can see myself reading this again in the future just to see if there was anything I missed the first time around. Thank you to the author for a chance to read this book. I will definitely be checking out more books from this author!
The book starts with huge action scenes that pull the reader in instantly. The book is divided into four parts, some with more action than others. After Part One that almost has non-stop action, Part Two goes into a slower section where the two main characters are introduced, who happen to be high school students. We get to know James and Lucinda whose attraction to each other seems ethereal, which indeed turns out to be exactly that. Without giving it away, one is the child of the royal Queen of the Seraphs, where the other is the child of a demon and a human. Soon their attraction turns volatile and they are on the run from the demons who have entered our world.
This book is full of supernatural things and also things that keep the reader guessing. There is a lot of teenage angst, so be forewarned if you don't like that sort of thing. This book has two teens that are plunged into an adventure where they "thought" they were normal, but soon find out they are anything "But" normal. I liked the way the author has James and Lucinda grow up and learn to love and take care of others beside themselves. They also get a huge dose of humility and sacrifice as the story continues. Kudos to the author for writing such great parents for both James and Lucinda. They are portrayed as normal, loving parents that would do, and will do everything in their power to help their children. So often in YA books we don't see parents like this and it was very refreshing to me.
Overall, readers of fantasy, the supernatural and anything having to do with battles between Angels and Demons will like reading The Soulstealer's Child. The author has said on Goodreads that there will be another book in this series to help resolve the story because it was left with a little cliffhanger. I'll be anxiously waiting to read what happens to James and Lucy.
