Reviewed by Crystal Book provided by NetGalley for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book I had mixed feelings when I started reading Soul Weaver. Nathaniel was an angel that lied for his brother so now he works for the Devil. He has to control the shears that helps cut souls to make wings. He handles darkness all the time. When he sees an accident and notices a bright soul, well he decides to save it. He cuts a piece of himself and puts it in the whole in her chest to make her soul stay in her body. Needless to say he didn’t know that he had damned her soul. Chloe suffers from agoraphobia. Since her accident she suffers nightmares and panic attacks. She depends on other people to get her groceries and run her errands that she has. She hires a woman to help her run the day to day business. She also has some scars. The plot to the story was good. It had some parts that really kept your interest and then other parts that seemed to just drag on. I think some things in the book didn’t need as much detail as others. I liked the whole good versus evil. There was also people you thought were good really was bad and vice versa. I don’t know if the reason they feel in love was because their souls were entwined or because they really loved each other. I could see the attraction. They each helped the other out. Chloe brought light into Nathaniel’s life. Nathaniel was there to help Chloe become a person again and not a hermit. There was just so much going on in this book. There was action, suspense, love, and betrayal. I was glad that Nathaniel stepped in and took over raising his nephew Bran. I couldn’t imagine loving a person so bad that I would hate the kid because they lived while the other person died. I believe that this is a great start to a series and that the books will just get better as the author gets more into writing the series. Like I said I didn’t like how it wasn’t as smooth and kept my attention all the way. I did get into it and it makes me want to read the next book.
I have read a few angel novels lately. Some are more memorable than others. Though this story was interesting, and I did enjoy it, it is a novel that is somewhat forgettable. Chloe was an interesting character because of her agoraphobia. Her first meeting with Archangel Nathaniel, leaves her scarred with this psychological illness, but the good news is, she is alive. But to keep her alive, Nathaniel takes immeasurable risk. The unbalance he has caused by saving her life causes a domino effect that he is not sure how to rectify. Chloe, as a character, was not very memorable, even with such a juicy backstory. Though this love story is filled with promises of yearning sighs, and prickling tears in the back of your eyes, I didn't find myself as engrossed in this story as I hoped to be. There was also a lack of connection for me with the villains of this story. The plot was too intricate, and I never quite understood who was good, and who was evil, or how their agendas were playing out. The world building was slightly confusing at times, as well as some of the characters introduced. Despite all that, their story was as sweet as promised. Though the story built slowly, when there was action, it was interesting. There were a couple of sighs, and a little prickle of moisture in my eyes. At least, the romantic aspect of the story did, in fact, deliver. The story was certainly unique, and the characters were either beings that I have not encountered in other books before and therefore original. This may be quite an appealing read for romance fans looking for a novel with some interesting mythology, angels and demons, and beings that don't quite fall into one category or the other.
This is a good short read loved the ending.
