"Like a beautifully composed piano composition, Twin Souls connects with readers - presenting a vampire novel that makes them question who the real monsters are."
"It can be difficult to write about vampires after twilight since it became such a big hit so everyone who have read the books will compare them to other books in the same genre unless you come up with something unique. I really think Poe did that here!"
-Cecilia, Rather Barefoot than Bookless
About the Author

From vampires to witches and werewolves, you will find what hundreds of five-star reviews confirm - once you join the adventure, you'll never want to stop.

K.A. Poe's passions have always been writing and reading, escaping reality and starting adventures in worlds beyond the mundane familiarity of Earth. Full of imagination, creativity and wonderment, K.A. Poe almost always has a fresh idea in mind for a new tale to tell. When she isn't reading or writing she can be found playing video games or designing in Photoshop. She is a hoarder of colorful socks and admirer of squirrels and penguins (and by "admirer", this clearly means she squeals at the mere sight of either animal).
She resides in the deserts of Arizona with her husband and daughter. Accompanying the trio is K.A. Poe's writing assistant Aries (who happens to be a cat and doesn't do much in the way of assisting or writing, unless you consider sleeping on the keyboard helpful... ) and their two other furry companions - Lyra and Gemini.
Currently Released Novels: Twin Souls Hybrid Sacrifice Destiny
Being abandoned by your dad was one thing, but when your mom walks out on you too, what do you do? Alexis is going to be 18 soon and things in her life have suddenly gotten more complicated than she bargained for. Feeling completely abandoned, she does her best to go on with her life while her dad left a long time ago and her mom just left to go live elsewhere with her boyfriend, Mark. Her best friends, Karen and Jason, do their best to cheer her up, but should Alexis even care anymore? Interestingly enough, she meets a mysterious new guy at school that is showing quite a bit of interest in Alex while her life is going down the drain. She ends up going to his house and after midnight on her 18th birthday, he has to explain that she is from a line of vampire hunters and her mom and dad were not her real parents. Her Uncle Paul is her real father and her real mother has been dead for a long time. Paul hid Alex in order to protect her from the monsters he was hunting. But the twist is that Salem, the new guy from school, is a vampire too. He just doesn't drink human blood. And he can conjure pretty much anything he wants to, food included. The more that she gets to know Salem, the less she thinks he is a monster. In fact, she really likes him and he cares for her very deeply. But Paul is a hard case and feels like all vampires are monsters. Then Alex sees her mother on t.v. after having been mauled by a bear. She was in the hospital, but alive. Alex has a bad feeling about what is going on, thinking that it was a vampire, like Mark. Salem doesn't think it's him at first because he used to be like Salem. But after a series of strange and short conversations with Alex's mom, Salem grows more suspicious of Mark being the perpetrator. In a desperate move, Alex asks for she and Paul, along with her real aunt, to go see about her mom. But she has no idea what she will find and how it will impact her life.
In a way you want to say poor Alex because of all of the hardships she had to endure. However, she is one tough girl and does her absolute best to deal with things as they come. It is a lot to take in being abandoned by two parents only to find out neither are your real parents and your real dad wants a relationship with you. He wants to be dad while Alex is not ready to accept that just yet. It is a tenuous situation and things get more and more strained with the situation with Alex's mom and then finding out that Alex has an exceptionally rare gift. Then there is Salem, who Paul has tried to kill a few times and almost succeeded at one point. Will Paul be able to accept their growing relationship? And more importantly, will Alex be able to accept who she really is?
Oh how I wish that this series was available from Kindle Unlimited! Apparently I had already downloaded this book on it's own but I actually read it as part of "The Paranormal 13" & I enjoyed reading this story SO much that I immediately clicked the link at the end of the story to look into starting the second book...rather than continuing to read the collection this story was among. Unfortunately as I'm on a limited budget and the next book isn't available via Kindle Unlimited, much to my dismay, I am forced to wait and hope that it will be available at a reduced price. That doesn't mean that I believe the author/publisher has it priced too high...simply that I can't afford it at this point. Regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I am extremely grateful that I was not left with unanswered questions due to a cliffhanger ending! This left me feeling satisfied that I read the whole story while still allowing me to anticipate what will happen next. Very well done!
Ms. Poe's characters were real enough to visualize, a must for those of us who are visual learners! Alexis could have been the girl next door, well, until she found out there really ARE vampires! All of the characters invading the pages of Twin Souls behaved in a believable fashion. Although a bit like some other stories where the heroine finds out she's special and then finds a soul mate, there were enough differences to make this story Ms. Poe's very own.
The only real criticism of the book is that the love between Salem and Alexis rang a bit false in that it occurred so instantly. On the other hand, Alexis is 18 yrs old, and that is what a lot of 18 yr old people do. By keeping that in mind I was able to believe a bit more in the soul mate part of the story.
What I found truly believable of the 18 yr. old girl was the dropping out of school, forgetting to check the fridge, and I'm wondering about the paying of bills!
I will be looking for more from Ms. Poe.........totally worth reading.
I WAS FULLY INTRIGUED. BY THE STORY BEHIND THIS NOVEl WHEN I READ THE DESCRIPTION OF THR BOOK. I WAS NOT DISSAPOINTED! Young Alexis is soon turning eighteen and anxious for the new changes this will bring to her life. She is not prepared though for the surprise that she gets. The people who raised her are not her real parents and her uncle Paul is her father and he is a vampire hunter. Paul Wants Alexis to pick up the bow a start to fight with him in his crusade to destroy all vampires.we find out that Alex'sboological mother was killed by a vampire and this is the reason Paul hates them so much. Alexis is confused and upset because she finds out that the new boy in school that she has fallen for (Salem Young) is a vampire who feeds on the blood of animals. You really need to sit down and read this story. You will love it. I CANT WAIT TO START THE NEXT IN SERIDES.
I am probably not the intended audience for this book or its author. I would have gave it a three star but this was a decent book for the intended audience. I had read some bad reviews about the lack of editing and this must have been corrected by the time I came across it. Its a cute story line for a young adult, teen age group
