    FanFreakinTastic start to a New Dark Urban Fantasy series!

    I loved this book and I can proudly say this author has made it to my favorite authors list! Livia, a soul catcher and her soul-mate Ian, a soul hunter are lost souls who reincarnate through the passage of different centuries, cultures and colors. A soul catcher either through thought, speech or hand-drawings has the power to permanently banish demons from this reality. A soul hunter protects and fights for the soul catcher while she's vulnerable to her prey during her banishing ritual. Unfortunately, for Livia and Ian, no matter what the era, their souls are always doomed to repeat the same disastrous cycle. Through Livia's stubborn and short sidedness she is always destine to leave her surrounding protectors (her reincarnate mother, father, grandmother and sibling) exposed and susceptible to harm. After two hundred years of Livia and Ian being mercilessly stalked, brutally raped and callously tortured by the same vengeful demon, there is a shift in the sequence of Livia and Ian's soul cycle. Livia and Ian finally get a chance to redeem their damaged souls and change the course of their impending fate. To take advantage of this opportunity Livia and Ian must go through a complete soul searching reformation, and relive the calamity that condemned them and the demon on this cursed collision. This was one of the most impressive, unparalleled, violent and depraved fantasies I've ever read. This book fascinated and entranced me so thoroughly; I read it all in one day. I can honestly say I've never read anything like it. The world Leigh Bridger built is tragic, dark, bleak, dangerous and unique. The action was creative; the plot was bold and fresh; the phenomenal journey through Livia and Ian's many life-spans were both alarming and amazing at the same time. For those wondering what genre his book falls into, I categorize it as a very dark urban fantasy romance. If you are looking for creative, different and interesting fantasy, give this book a try but beware, this book has high violence and savage sexual content. I highly recommend this book to dark urban fantasy readers and look forward to the next book Soul Hunter due out 6/2010.

    An exciting unique urban fantasy

    When she was a child, her granny knew that Livia Belane had a special destiny to fulfill and tattooed symbols of the Light onto her head to protect her. Olivia was heartbroken when her father committed suicide and recalls nothing about the fire that killed her mom and brother. Somehow she escaped unscathed, but whispered gossip claims she set the inferno. She ended up in a psycho facility and when she was released at night she dreams of a demon, of whom she paints while she sleeps.

    Her paintings contain the ugliest demon ever; she calls him Pig Face. Although Livia is a loner, people want to befriend her through her countless reincarnations. They inform her she is a Soul Hunter, a person who sends demons back to the hells they came from. She meets a man and is prepared for hot sex, but instead he tortures and rapes Livia. Ian, who loves Livia and has through several lifetimes, takes over the body of her rapist who was the demon Pig Face; like Ian, Pig Face has made it through several of her reincarnations killing both of them each time. However, this time is different as Livia and Ian must defeat Pig Face whose power keeps increasing with each of their deaths and soon will be too strong for them to stop his takeover of Asheville; eventually North Carolina, the USA, and the earth will follow.

    Deborah Smith, writing as Leigh Bridger, has authored an exciting unique urban fantasy that is an amalgam of reincarnation, demonic-angelic warfare, and special people with skills to see and fight evil beings. Livia changes from a reactive frightened person into a bold individual accepting Ian's help even though every time she looks at his face, she stares at her rapist. The love these two souls share gives them hope that they will overcome Pig Face, but he thirsts for vengeance too for what they did in a previous life a long time ago without understanding the consequences which fueled the demon's rage.
