T.L. Searle has a way of describing something, a thing, person, action, anything, and when the readers reads the words, the pictures form. The writing is very well done and I loved that I felt like I had stepped right into the book with the descriptions on the page.
I found this book to be filled with everything I like in a story. There is humor, raw emotions, suspense, evolution of characters, and so much more.
The Pace of Finding Soul was great. We moved from scene to scene seamlessly and I didn’t feel like any scenes were overly long or fluffy.
The Characters were well built with emotions and substance. I really enjoyed the relationships between Jon, Gabby, and Miles. There’s a scene in a hotel room with Miles and Jon and it was just beautiful. You felt the years of friendship and it was so filled with emotion. I loved it.
The Plot in Finding Soul is so interesting. It takes you on a journey from regular Earth to the Otherworld where there are witches and Not Mermen, and all kinds of other creatures that Fantasy lovers will enjoy. The story has a mix of action as well as down time where the reader really gets to know the characters.
Overall, this was a fun book filled with interesting characters, solid writing, and an enjoyable story.
Readers of science fiction, fantasy and paranormal will be interested in this book. It is stuffed with characters of fantasy-lore and you will love it!
“Darovit are not born
They are created
By something even we cannot see”
– Benjamin SOLOMAN
Four-year-old Jonathan Miller was rescued by a girl with rainbow hair, shrouded in black, who flew like magic along the ground.
Eighteen-year-old Jon, obsessed with fantasy and the supernatural, dreams of her still.
Now she has returned. She says he’s no longer safe and that he needs to come with her; that the necklace she gifted him is no longer enough.
But who is she? And who is he?
Joined by his best friend, Miles, Jon is led on a frightening tour of an Otherworld he knew nothing about; a missing Seer, the nefarious Otherworld hit men the Vipers, witches, Not-Mermen and the ugly toads that had once captured him.
And his companions have their own gifts.
They are Darovit; their scaled Dar their constant companions.
But she is not just his hero, and he was not just a boy.
And the Otherworld is hunting him still.
