Review ~ Wayward Soul by Kim Bowman
TITLE: Wayward Soul
AUTHOR: Kim Bowman
TYPE: paranormal romance
SERIES: not that I know of
REASON FOR READING: Saw it offered on the BLB tour and it looked interesting
SUMMARY (from Goodreads):
When Zanna Seoul accidentally causes the death of a fellow spirit guide’s charge while trying to save the life of the man she loves, she is stripped of her position and banished to Earth to die. In the spirit world, one doesn’t mess with what’s written. With Zanna no longer guiding him and his memory of her erased, Owen Nash is left wide open as the target of the vengeful spirit guide who feels he’s been wronged. A guide who also happens to be a werewolf. Once on Earth, Zanna refuses to stand by and watch Owen die, so she intervenes again, setting off a chain of events that could mean death for all of them if she doesn’t go back and undo the mess she’s made. Can Zanna succeed before the werewolf does
Okay keep in mind this book is literally 57 pages. But in that 57 pages you learn of a culture, a world that didn’t exist, punishment if you break the laws, love and a couple of near death experiences that make it all somehow a very interesting yet quick read. Seriously I actually enjoyed it.
I liked the world that was lightly touched on. It had just enough that I grasped what was occurring but didn’t overload me where the story got lost.
The characters were fleshed out as well as one can be for 57 pages. I liked the way it worked between a spirit guide and a mortal
The ending was a little ugh with the epilogue and no I won’t ruin it for you.
Dislikes: the shortness of the story didn’t leave it much room and would have been a fantastic story fleshed out more.
The villain was seriously a villain for no other reason than that and well I thought it would’ve been cooler with a better back story but hey she only had 57 pages LOL I can’t ask for more right?
Are you keeping it or passing it on? Sure I’d re-read it
Would you recommend this book? Yeah it was quick and cute
