I absolutely loved Warin and Liv's characters and I was captivated through the entire book. I couldn't put it down! And I can't wait to read what Aleric gets himself into! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I had no idea what to expect going into this book, and I was pleasantly surprised. I usually see twists and turns coming, can usually guess who the 'bad guy' will be, and I did to an extend in this book as well, but I was also surprised by several twists. I love that not every little thing was predictable. I loved Warin. Olivia needs to grow up a bit, but I think with the childhood she had that can be expected. I really want to know more about several other characters, who I hope we see in future books.

COMPLETELY SPELLBINDING!!! Oh my! I loved, loved, loved Wicked Soul, the first book in a deliciously dark new paranormal/supernatural romance series entitled Ancient Blood by the amazingly talented Nora Ash. Although Wicked Soul is Book 1 of the Ancient Blood Series, it is NOT the first release in the series & not recommended as a standalone. It should only be read after Origin, in which Ash establishes the premise, sets up the storyarc, introduces the primary characters, and skillfully lays the groundwork for the interconnected underlying conflict featured throughout the Ancient Blood series, & does it all skillfully & beautifully! Ash is a gifted storyteller, talented wordslinger, & skilled wordsmith who excels at creating imaginative & compellingly layered storylines infused with danger, drama, suspense, & dark romance, set in fascinating worlds populated with intriguing, complex characters who literally explode from the pages & capture your imagination as well as your heart. And this book/series is certainly no exception! Wicked Soul is a riveting, fast-paced, full-length paranormal tale filled to the brim with spine-tingling danger, chilling suspense, sinister machinations, heart-wrenching angst, explosive passion, & seductive romance. The narrative is beautifully written in the third person with the primary perspective from the female protagonist, Olivia Green. There is a short, second perspective given only in the epilogue by one of the other characters. The dialogue is smart, snappy, well-executed, at times humorous, & flows effortlessly. But without a doubt, my favorite component of every Ash story is her cast of well-developed characters, always flawed yet imperfectly perfect. And again, Ash doesn't disappoint! There's nothing better than a well-written antihero, & Ash pens some of the best I've ever read. I was immediately smitten with the dangerous, dark, broody European vampire Warin Waldlitch when he was introduced in Origin which takes place approximately 800 years in the past. In Wicked Soul, In Wicked Soul, Warin is now a wealthy, charismatic, & powerful ancient who rules the supernaturals of Chicago. Our heroine is Olivia Green, a beautiful, free-spirited young woman with a painful past which has resulted in self-esteem issues. Liv has never been able to put down roots, constantly moving from place to place, always in search of happiness but never finding it. But despite her personal issues and cynicism, Liv has remained upbeat but has pretty much given up on love and leads a solitary, lonely existence-until now! Warin and Liv are complete opposites but complement each other brilliantly. The chemistry between them is mesmerizing. When the reserved Warin meets the lovely, chatterbox Liv, his entire existence implodes. No spoilers from me but I will say this- A beautiful, plucky shop clerk who'd never even met a supernatural creature until she's abducted from a coffee shop & thrown in a cage with a vampire to be used as his food, simply because she'd been reading a vampire romance-check! A handsome ancient vampire who allows himself to be captured while conducting an investigation into the disappearance of his subjects in Chicago, but instead of answers, he finds more questions along with an intriguing young woman he can't remove from his thoughts-check! A mysterious conspiracy, evil machinations, secrets, lies, danger, drama, action, suspense, intrigue,& betrayal-check! Attraction, angst, passion & romance-That & more!

*Spoilers Wicked Soul by Nora Ash is one of the most realistic supernatural romances ever. It is about Olivia, who works in an all things witch store, and Warin, Lord of vampires for the city of Chicago. They meet after both being kidnapped and placed in a cage, inside a basement. Olivia because she is caught reading vampire romance out in public, and Warin because he purposely wanted to be caught, while investigating attacks against vampires blood source. After becoming freed of the cage their friendship then romance progress. Along with attacks against Olivia for being involved with a vampire. I absolutely love this novel. I love the kinda quirkiness and bluntness of Olivia. I especially love the progression of Olivia and Warin's relationship. The author eases you into the relationship, where you are actually able to read about the growth of feelings and attraction. Every word flows smoothly together and you are able to easily read along, not a single unnecessary sentence. Wicked Soul is just an overall amazing story. Not a single negative comment to say about it.

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. I have *issues* with this book. Aside from the fact its single person point of view and blah blah blah of course I wanted to hear from Warin, Olivia has to be the single most annoying main character I have ever come across and I cannot,for the life of me figure out why I kept reading!! She whines and moans and has the mental age of a teenager, I wasn't actually sure how old she was supposed to be til she and Warin are talking about how old he is. Clearly, the British vampire Night Lord who's name escapes me already, is playing on a much bigger playground than just Chicago. And Warin's brother, Aleric, is part of that playground judging by the epilogue, but I can't see what game he is playing. The book is reasonably well written, with some sexy scenes and some violence, but nothing too explicit or graphic. I saw no spelling or editing errors. Will I read book two? Depends on who has the majority voice in that one. If it's Aleric? Possibly. I just did not like Olivia! But I did finish it, so for that reason... 3 stars Sorry this is short, but I find the 3 star ones for meh books the hardest to write. **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Oh my god I loved this story! Warin is sexy, smutty, and oh soooo dirty. He's possessive and tries to be cold.. Liv is strong, careful, and only wants to keep their friendship, as unlikely as it is. I kept turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next.. How was it going to all go down..? Now I need more. Give me more! The storyline just caught me and wouldnt let go and I loved it. Every second of it. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Wow what a fantastic read by Nora Ash. This is the story of Liv and Warrin, Warrin saves Liv’s life and instead of killing her like most vampires do he saves her and then he blood bonds with her. They start out as friends but then they bloom into a relationship, Liv is a bit of a trouble maker but Warrin keeps her steady. What a great read, there’s vampires, twists and turns, mystery , suspense, hot scenes and so very much more. Great descriptions of the characters and I loved the storyline and I highly recommend this book it’s well worth the read.

Warin was amazing! He’s now a modern male, no longer the bloodthirsty vampire he used to be. And he runs into his soulmate again! Without saying much more.. I loved it! It’s a standalone, HEA and I definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in vampire romance! *swoon* can’t wait until Aleric has his story out!

I thoroughly enjoyed Warin and Olivia's story. There is lots of suspense, danger and loving in this amazing book. Apparently, ancient witch spells can be broken. So looking forward to Aleric's story.

This is my first book from this author and I really enjoyed it. If you like paranormal with suspense, humor, alpha males and romance then this book is for you. There was a lot of build up between Warin and Olivia and then the explosion—you’ll have to read it to find out.. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars was Olivia was just too gullible and too indecisive in some aspects. She seemed just a little too innocent. I love paranormal and a happy ending which this book definitely has. I would definitely recommend this book and will be reading more from this author. FYI: you need to read origin first as these are in order.

It could use some more character development for Warin. Liv’s decisions tends to be a head scratcher. Other than that, I have no complaints. The story is a great adventure with the right amount of steam. It has interesting supporting characters. The pace of the story is engaging - nothing repetitive. Good read!

WICKED SOUL - IS PASSIONATELY HOT! An incredible deep-felt read from the start; every time I said one more chapter I had to continue reading until I reached the conclusion. Inside; eerie danger, gripping suspense, action, life-threatening incidents, humor, camaraderie, moments that tug your heartstrings, surprises, secrets, betrayal, a mystery, potent vivid scene descriptions, and intense sizzling romance. Liv and Warin meet under unusual circumstances; both kidnapped and locked in a cage by vampire haters. Liv is sassy, enjoys drawing as a hobby and Warin is a dangerous gorgeous Law Enforcement vampire. When the haters cut Liv to make her appetizing for Warin he saves her life with his blood. They develop a friendship, encounter many twists and turns and how they get their joyous ending is quite an enthralling read! An impressive story that had my heart racing, laughing, feeling and cheering for the praiseworthy characters. Liv and Warin definitely belong together and their romance is certainly genuine; loved them together. If you enjoy vampire romances this is definitely a fabulous book for your library. I found this to be a most gratifying read and loved it so much {I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy.} Without reservations, I recommend this book.
