He gave up eternity for love… and lost. Will she be his second chance?
Maia sees dead people. Since she can't distinguish them from the living, she ignores everyone in order to appear sane. But the ghost haunting her roommate breaks through her hardened shell. Not only does he claim to not be dead, he makes her feel things she never has before—dangerous feelings for a man who can never be hers.
For an angelborn like Caleb, dying without a soul sentenced him to eternity in the Wasteland. Now he's escaped, but the only way to stay free is by convincing his true love to share her soul with him. You only get one soulmate and his is not the broken, scarred young woman he can't stay away from. With dangerous angels hunting him, Maia is a distraction he can't afford.
After inadvertently leading a threat to Caleb's door, Maia is willing to risk anything to keep him safe. Even if that means losing him forever.
**A new adult, paranormal romance. For readers 17+

ARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. What a great story! This is very different to anything I've read and I was highly engrossed with the characters. I was rooting for Maia the whole way. Her life was so tragic with the ability to see the dead and then to fall for a halfling who was a soulmate to another was heartbreaking. I was so intrigued to find out how it would all come together in the end. I'm so glad to find out Wren has his own story just because I want to read more about this world.
I adored this book. Yeah I've enjoyed everything so far that I've read from this author but that's because her world building is great. Like with this book. I personally, don't believe in anything supernatural-y or the concept of angels/demons/heaven/hell/etc but with how real her world building is, while I was reading it I could lose myself and pretend it was real. It wasn't overly fantastical in that whole "there's no way this could ever happen because this doesn't exist". Like I was kind of sceptical going into this book. I KNEW I would enjoy it yes. But I didn't think I'd enjoy it as much as I did. It had enough based in reality that I sat there and went y'know this COULD potentially happen. And I really enjoy books like that. Even if they're fantasy books. They nicely blur the line between fantasy and reality. Don't get me wrong, I also like books that take place in a completely fantastical fantasy world that's completely improbable. But for a book like this, having it grounded enough in reality that it seems probable was definitely the best choice for this book.
