The Soulstealer's Child Review

Can a human heart overcome a demon soul?

When soul-eating demons overrun his world, Kaelis, a young seraph warrior, uses the Queen’s ring to open a portal in space and flee with the infant heir to the throne, landing on earth. Unbeknownst to him, the demon leader, Nsark, follows through the portal, determined to devour the soul of every last seraph, especially the Queen’s heir. After Kaelis hides the baby, Nsark creates the ultimate weapon by fathering a half-human, half-demon: a soul-stealer’s child. 

Sixteen years later, an awkward teen named James struggles to fit in with his peers. In a last-ditch effort, he joins the school play, where he meets Lucy. Something deep draws them together, and their friendship reveals their hidden pasts: one is an angel, one is half-demon. Lucy and James find themselves pulled into an age-old war between their peoples. Hunted by relentless enemies, and grappling with deep-seated instincts and strange new powers, they must fight for their lives, their souls, and each other.

5 out of 5 stars

This book starts out with complete destruction of the seraph society by demons. One warrior makes an extremely difficult choice and manages to save the queens child by going through a portal to earth, unknowingly followed by two demon.

What follows is a fantastic tale of passion, light and darkness and of course the choices to either embrace who you really are or not.  

I started this book while working on a project and didn't manage to finish my project until the book was finished. Usually I can have my kindle read a book to me and I continue working on, tidying the house or working on the computer, and have no problems. But with this book I found myself staring at the screen and reading ahead because the auto reader couldn't read it fast enough for my liking (despite my speeding up the reading rate). I also didn't  get anything done in a productive manner. I even had to go back through my work because I was so distracted I managed to mess it all up.

I really enjoyed the flow of the book, it managed to hit a good mix between all the different elements included in the plot. The characters were also complex and interesting, with believable motives and though patterns. This book is clean and I wouldn't hesitate recommending it to anyone who likes, YA, Clean Romance, or fantasy.

I loved this book and can't wait for the next book in the series!
