For as long as there have been people, there has been a fear of the dark. Mothers tell their children there isn’t anything in the shadows that isn’t there in the light. They are wrong. The reason humanity is afraid of the dark is because that’s when demons come out to play. The ghosts that fight them can’t come out until the sun goes down, either. And Soul’s Agents, like Navi? They’re just normal, boring people until the moon claims the sky. And then they aren’t. Death allows lost souls one last chance. Fight with the Agents against demons and darkness and evil and they won’t spend eternity roasting on a spit. It seems like an easy enough choice, but apparently roasting is easy and requires little effort, and fighting, well… Fighting is hard. Twenty-two year old Navi is an Agent, and she is good at what she does. Her only distraction is the boy who broke her heart four years ago-especially when the demons she hunts start hunting him, and she’s the only one who can keep him alive.
I received a copy of The Soul’s Agent via BookFunnel from the author, Wendy Knight. Everything I say here is my opinion. There was no compensation for this review.
Hmmm… what can I say about The Soul’s Agent? Well, I think I should begin in saying this book is what I shall call a Fluff Crackative story. What is Fluff Crackative? Well, the Fluff means that this book was a quick read. It only took me a day and I actually enjoyed the dialogue and story. It is one of those books that fits perfectly in between heavier reads and cleans the reading palette. The fluff book is a very important book in a reader’s library. In my opinion.
What about the Crackative? Welll…. that is not my term, but more a term from my best friend, Crys (said like Chris). It is a ship word for crack and creative. Crack meaning that the story has off the wall stuff and creative because the story goes well with its crack.
It was honestly hard to explain the story to Crys and therefore would be difficult to do here, but I will say that I liked it. I like the idea of Spiritual Probation and I did like the personal drama of Alec and Navi. The book was a mix of contemporary romance with a heavy paranormal edge. Sure, that would mean it’s a paranormal romance, but the romance fell more in the lines of a contemporary in style.
For the first half of the book, it is more about the romance of Alec and Navi. Drama and all. As for the second half, that had to do a lot with Navi and Alec’s coping and the paranormal awesomeness.
In all, the book was fun and a great in between book. I would read another Wendy Knight book.
