Let me just tell you how hard it is to do a review on the third book in a series without spoilers...it is darn near impossible!! I am going to try my best to but just in case.....
WARNING: COULD CONTAIN SPOILERS
Now I feel much better that I put that there.
In Soulless we see a very different side of Sienna. A more immature side, in my opinion. I wasn't happy with the way she acted, especially concerning the bar scene. I just felt like this was something not on par with what I expected of Sienna. And it of course made me dislike Scott...again.
The plot in this third book seems to be more focused on love: the emotional as well as the physical aspects. I thought Sienna was a little too obsessed with the physical components of a relationship, but then again being a succubus, I guess the hormones get even more out of the way for her.
In this area, it didn't feel like Sienna for me. I guess I am used to her being in life or death situations so much, it was a little hard to get used to her being a teenager/young adult just trying to cope with family problems, sexual urges, and responsibilities.
Some parts of the mystery were easily figured out while others I was shaking my head that Crane was able to draw me in so completely never knowing what was going to happen.
I love love love the fact that Reed is in this book more than just a couple of pages!! Do you know how much I adore Reed? We get to actually learn a little more about Reed and I am secretly rooting for Sienna to open her eyes to his charm.
And of course in true Crane fashion, we meet some very dark characters that make you shudder in fear, but this time, he disguises the villains so well you will definitely be guessing till the very end. I know I was.
The ending was phenomenal; probably Crane's best one yet! The middle tended to get on my nerves though with the mistakes Sienna made and her experiments with alcohol.
I have to admit this was the hardest review I have ever had to write. I loved the characters, love the plot, and jumped up and down in excitement at the ending, but there were parts that just made me really mad about Sienna. But in a way, that is the qualities of a good writer to show us things about the characters we may not want to believe or see. It makes the characters seem even more realistic(even if they do have super powers) and easier to relate with, making us look deeper inside ourselves to look at our qualities both good and bad.
At first, I was afraid I wasn't going to be happy with Soulless, but after all the plot lines come together, I realize this was the best book I read so far, with a very important message for any young person out there (superhero or not): accept yourself.

I finally found out what happened to her mother but not too much about it. This was not my favorite book of the series. Still have too many unanswered questions. Poor girl has a cold mother - certainly not very loving. I may drop this series if the next book isn't better. I have a financial investment in this series and I am feeling "let down."

*May Contain Minor Spoilers for Books #1 & #2 in this series!*
Soulless picks up about 6 months after the end of Untouched. Sienna is now in the Directorate training program, along with Scott and Kat. Of course, she's up against a brand new enemy in Soulless, but she's beginning to understand that it all leads back to the mysterious Omega. She doesn't know why, but Omega wants her.
Soulless is definitely the best book in this series so far. Sienna, Scott and Kat are being treated more like allies of the Directorate and are sent on missions. This book is packed with the action and adventure that we've come to expect in this series, and Crane does an amazing job with the fight scenes once again. I'm always amazed at the beatings Sienna can take and still keep fighting. In Soulless she is placed in some very difficult situations, and she must make some extremely difficult decisions. If there's one thing Sienna's good at it's making bad decisions. We are once again led to question the loyalties of so many people, and we get to meet a few new people.
Soulless is an excellent addition to The Girl in the Box series. The series has quickly become an addiction for me, and I love that Crane is quickly feeding my habit!

Amazing! Probably not as good as the first two books but very close and my opinion is biased based on certain events in the book. I don't want to give any of the book away for those who haven't read it yet so get reading!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

*Souls story* Chap. 3-Fang woke up when his bottom hit a sharp rock amd we dashed through the forest until our den was well out of sight. We stopped in a clearing with two big rocks criss-crossing in the center and moonlight shone down, turning everything silver. Fang turned to me and started barking questions. "Why did we run?! Why did you drag me? What's-" I cut him off with my tail over his mouth. "Look, dad murdered mom. Didn't you hear? Didn't you smell her blood?" I explained what had happened when he dozed off. "Father wouldn't do that!" I sighed. "We have to get as far away as possible. Come on." We traveled all night and finally at daybreak we found an abandoned fox hole and slept until sometime after sunhigh. I woke with a jolt.
