From reading other reviews, I came to know that this book was part of a sequel, however, it stands on its own, not having read the first book, I was able to follow along just fine. Several references are made to the previous plot, keeping the reader up to date as to how the previous story relates.
The main character, Ward, has been given a gift to be able to read people’s souls (as the title implies). Seen as curse at times, the ‘gift’ proves itself as a blessing in more ways than one.
In the Soul Reader, Ward is collaborating on a book project with his ex-girlfriend, Carrie. The subject of research is a dangerous one; there have been many mysterious deaths in connection with the topic of interest. Ward and Carrie are no exception to the danger, though Carrie is somewhat naïve on the matter.
The Soul Reader has an unpredictable plot loaded with romance, action, and faith. All of which make it an enjoyable suspense/thriller. The book is clean and has some Catholic religious references. (There is one use of foul language, but nothing to over the top.)
I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it.
