This urban fantasy review is of a book with all the gritty action of the genre.
Soul Breaker is another well-written indie book that if you like urban fantasy warrants your time and money. It sometimes gets pretty graphic but not enough to turn me off the book.
The plot involves a Detective of the supernatural, Cal Kinsey. He’s new on the job but that doesn’t stop him from taking a major role in the investigation of some horrific murders. I love it when urban fantasy gets away from vampires and werewolves, and this one does. The criminal in this case comes from Etruscan myth, an area that is completely new to me, thus making this delightfully unique. The author skilfully portraits the power of these mythical characters with clear and evocative prose.
The pacing is excellent. It never lagged and never obstructed character development. The characters were well-developed, realistic and easy to relate to.
What I really love about this book is how once our hero gets to actually talk to the ‘bad guys’, we see that they are, in fact, noble beings defending their sacred objects within the laws of their land—the Eververse. The Eververse isn’t our realm though, and when they break through the veil between the worlds, humans are in serious trouble.
I also love anything that involves different realms—such stories can be called transrealist, like my own book Worlds Within Worlds.
A well-deserved 5 stars.
