Blog Tour: Soul Possessed by Katlyn Duncan

Today, I am happy to be part of the Soul Possessed blog tour, hosted by Rockstar Book Tours! I have a review stop, with reviews of both books in the series! Read on for the reviews, as well as a super cool giveaway!

Titles: Soul Taken, Soul Possessed
Author: Katlyn Duncan
Publisher: Carina UK
Series: The Life After Trilogy
Genre: YA Paranormal

Soul Taken and Soul Possessed were super good! The main character was spunky and fun, and utterly different from other main characters. The plot was original and I did not see some things coming. The writing was spectacular, and read both books in a matter of days. There was the perfect amount of angst, tension, and passion all blended together.

The main character is named Maggie. As of the beginning of the books, she has been dead for over 100 years. She works as a Soul Collector. Much like a grim reaper, she takes the souls of the living and passes them on to the afterlife. Because she's a Soul Collector, she has no memory of her life before dying nor her death itself. Within humanity, there are the Prognatum. A race descended from angel-like creatures which are revered in the afterlife. When the soul a teen Prognatum, Allie, who has not yet come into powers goes missing, Maggie is called in to find. The best part, if she succeeds, she might just get the upgrade to Guard that she has been dying for. Maggie takes the pros and cons of the job in stride, until she accidentally gets sucked into Allie's body, things get weird. Although doing her best, Maggie starts to see visions from her past. Things she really hopes aren't true. Yet as scared as she is, Maggie faces the dangers head on. She doesn't give up until her job is achieved and she has gotten what she wanted. By the end of the book, fear still rules her, but by the end of book two, Maggie is ready to face these fears and accept her destiny.

Maggie's sudden change of heart is partly inspired by a betrayal that utterly destroys her. Just as she was starting to figure things out, nothing turns out to be as it seems. There are more plot twists than I know how to deal with and the characters deep and complex. No string is left open-ended, and the said betrayal will leave readers hungering for more. The books get better and better, the more you read. Book one gets five stars and book two gets four stars, coming to an average of 4.5 stars for the two books! Definitely worth the read and be sure to pick it up now!
