*NOTE TO READERS*
This book is a stand alone story. However, to receive the full experience the first book in the series "Soul Of A Man (The Dark Souls, #1)" is recommended.
Since it’s not in my nature to leave things unfinished, I decided to pick up the remaining books in The Dark Souls series starting with Soul of a Woman by Jamie Begley and ending with Soul of a Demon.
I knew with the topsy turvy feelings I had towards Soul of a Man that maybe I should’ve let bygone be bygones but I couldn’t compute the fact that I hadn’t given all of Begley’s stories a chance. So, as you can see I’ve been guilted into reading the remaining books in this series by my own conscious.
Soul of a Woman did not start off where Soul of a Man left at. I was actually confused on where we left off at because of the how the prologue was presented to us in this installment. It wasn’t until the end of the book that the prologue made sense and I was able to appreciate the gravity and tenderness of the moment between the characters in the prologue.
Where book one, Soul of a Man, featured Cara who was in charge of delivering souls to their final destination; heaven or hell, Broni in this installment was in charge of protecting certain souls for the duration of their life, and lastly Zerina – the heroine in Soul of a Demon, would be in charge of placing the souls within the person chosen for them. This break down of the main characters within the series made the most sense to me.
For the first half of Soul of a Woman by Jamie Begley I found myself disappointed in how the story was playing out as well as the characters I felt that we would’ve been left with for the duration of the story. When everyone died, in a sense, and the second half was introduced was when things started to make sense and I began to feel a connection with the characters and story.
Rhys’ character wasn’t likable or someone I could strive for because he acted like such a whiny baby and a brat that I was all for Broni falling in love with someone else, but thank goodness Warrior arrived because I was all for Broni finding someone worthy of her.
For an author who has one of the best MC romance series I’ve ever read, I felt disappointed in how she orchestrated the MC Rhys was a part of. I felt that the simple fact that they were an MC was sort of thrown in the convoluted mix that this series was full of; there wasn’t a brotherhood just a bunch of lawless men with one warden that made sure they get too out of hand.
I would like to say that Begley saved the best for last with Soul of a Demon but since I continued on in the series by reading it minutes after I finished Soul of a Woman I can say with all honesty that she didn’t.
