A must read! This book will have you hooked the moment you start reading it. It will be extremely difficult to put this book down once you start it. Can't wait for the next book of the series to come out!

*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. Hailee Hart thinks she’s just a simple girl from a down-to-earth background. She’s smarter than average and school comes easy to her, but she doesn’t think she’s anything special. When she goes away to college she finds out that’s not the case. At all. When super beautiful Alex wants to hang out with her, she doubts herself and him, but decides to go with the flow. Then things go to Hell in a hand basket and all she wants to do is run home and return to being Hailee Nothing Special. Unfortunately for her, that’s not going to be possible. I had such high hopes for this book. There’s a mystery about Hailee and Alex for a good portion of the book, but that’s about it. The writing is choppy and sloppy in parts. Another round with a proofreader would have helped, I hope, with missing words, extra words and homophones. And it seems lately that every book I read uses ‘shutter’ when the proper word is ‘shudder.’ It drives me crazy!  Hailee spends a good portion of this book running away to her room or someplace else where she can cry, pout or throw a tantrum. The characters of Alex and Seth are shallow and for being 1000s of years old they act like adolescents. All of the characters in this book are beyond annoying and unrealistic. Their actions are way off and their powers are never really explained. This story skims, skips and is generally non-informative. Everyone keeps secrets from Hailee and after getting angry she completely forgives them. This happens over and over again. I can’t stand her. She has no spine. She takes no responsibility for herself and she’s most annoying. Since this story is told from her POV that’s a problem for me. I have no desire to continue with this series. I really don’t care what happens to any of them.

For a debut novel, the author packs a punch! From start to finish the story grips you in its clutches and wont let go! Anxiously awaiting the sequel

Reviewed by Aly on behalf of The Book Landers Straight from the beginning, Michelle N. Files catches your attention. The short prologue was extremely dramatic and caught reader’s attention but it also managed to pack an emotional punch in there as well. I had absolutely no idea what was going on, why this was happening or who the characters were and yet I still felt the pain that the narrator felt. I still found myself reading, and reading as quickly as I could so that I could find out everything that was going on as quickly as possible. The two voices that serves as narrators in the prologue and most of Soul Survivor were clearly different and it was easy to tell who was who. I especially loved the humor that Hailee used when she was narrating. It was a self-depreciating type of humor and it was funny without being overly laugh out loud, pee your pants laughter. It was more of a chuckle moment but it was enough to relieve some of the more difficult moments. The angels were also different from the traditional religious angels. It was refreshing to see such a common figure changed and molded into something different. And they weren’t perfect. They all had their own motives, and not all of the motives were clearly good or bad. There were some good angels that had horrible motives and at least one bad angel that had a good motive. There were gray areas and it was refreshing to see that change. Not to mention it made it much easier to relate to them as characters and not see them as 2D filler characters. Soul Survivor honestly made me feel a whole range of feelings from heartbreak to the joy of first love to the grief of loss. It was honestly a heart wrenching journey and even as it was tearing my heart out I couldn’t find it in myself to stop reading. I couldn’t resist finding out what happened even if it meant that I felt more pain for the characters. It was just so...ugh. I literally loved and hated this book at the same time at certain points in this book. At points, I was actually in tears. But isn’t that the mark of a good author? They make you feel the emotions of their characters.  I honestly will probably read this book over and over again….once I get a nice little break to mend my fractured heart. Although the ending helped a little bit to mend the cracks.
