Soul Ties captured me immediately with its synopsis and the girl with pink hair on the cover. I love pink hair! This book did not disappoint - everything it promised, it delivered. The world as Ava knew it is ripped out from under her, and she begins to wonder if she really ever knew anything about her job at all. I wanted to know why and how she made the decision to become a soul-hunter when she was a teenager, especially after she was warned about all of the problems she could face with that single decision.
Dahlia is a mystery, and I couldn't help but feel Ava needed to be friendlier to her. She has a very surprising past and is linked to Keir in that past in surprising ways. Dahlia and Keir's relationship makes more sense once you find out what they've been through together. Dahlia didn't start out as a character I liked very much, but I began to like her the more I got to know her.
Keir is the perfect match for Ava in my opinion. As much as Ava tries to give the impression she's a tough and ruthless soul-hunter, Keir saw through her facade the moment they met. She's actually incredibly vulnerable and seemed at times to be close to letting that vulnerability slip through. The chemistry between Keir and Ava sizzled, and he turns her world upside down with the revelations about what really happens to the souls Ava collects and turns in. I thought the twist was pure genius.
I kept rooting for Ava to choose to fight alongside Keir rather than collect his soul. I understood her indecision though - her relationship with Keir is fraught with tension because neither can fully trust the other. She had to make a choice with the risk of Keir lying to her to save his soul from being collected, so it made sense that she would proceed with caution. She can't just believe him right off the bat when she was sent there to kill him for his soul. I did wish that Ava had been a stronger female character. I liked that she had vulnerability, but she seemed a little weak to me at times that didn't have anything to do with feeling vulnerable.
If you're looking for something different from vampires and werewolves in the paranormal department, Soul Ties is an excellent book for you to read. I love this book and can't wait for the next installment!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
