A Soul for Trouble: The Soulbearer Trilogy

A Soul for Trouble: The Soulbearer Trilogy

by Crista McHugh




When you're a witch named Trouble, chaos follows...

Arden Lesstymine (known to everyone as Trouble) likes attention as much as the next girl, but this is getting ridiculous. When an insane stranger is murdered at the inn where she works, Trouble becomes the next Soulbearer for the disembodied god of chaos, Loku. Yes, it comes with the ability to channel the god's limitless power, but at the cost of her sanity - literally. Now she has a sexy but cynical knight claiming to be her protector, a prince trying to seduce her to his cause (and his bed), and a snarky chaos god who offers a play-by-play commentary on it all, whether she wants to hear it or not. To make matters worse, a necromancer wants to capture the soul of Loku for his own dark purposes, and the only way he can get it is by killing her first.

"Book one in the Soulbearer trilogy, this fantastical romance is completely different from the myriad of others out there. It's a great book that pits Trouble against Chaos - two characters that all readers will want to visit again and again!" - 4 1/2 STARS from RT Book Reviews

With plenty of action, danger and interesting plot twists, I have to admit that despite the fact I don't normally care for love triangles, I read this book in a single sitting. Ms. McHugh has created a fascinating world full of magic, adventure, close calls, betrayals, and a fairly large mystery involving the heroine's own history. Throw in a sexy elf, a seductive prince, a snarky god of chaos, and even zombies, and how could I not like this? While I'm not sure what the "technical" genre classification for this book would be, I personally would categorize it as Upper YA/New Adult Fantasy based on the low steam level and rather immature heroine. However, even as a reader of more "adult" romantic fantasy, I still thoroughly enjoyed this one, and am definitely looking forward to the rest of the trilogy. {I received this title free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

When all the votes are in, a 'Soul For Trouble" could be a classic. At first glance this appears to just be another swords and sorcery tale. OK, but you then have to add to the basic recipe. Start by adding an equal part of 'coming of age' to the recipe, add a dash of slavery, a touch of ancient zombieism ( sp?), a dollop of spring/winter romance, doomed to be unrequited and finally mix with a cup of chaos (the god Locu, or in our dimension , Loki), a pinch of Elvish and bake. The result is this book IF you use a combination of naivete' and idealism as icing. All together a tasty reading treat.
