O Nazi Germany but justly so It is totally necessary to set up the back story Am I making any sense Well I am to me go read the book it is that complex yet not overwhelmingly soThe characters are thick and real I can see ach of them in my minds Henri Matisse eye The Hunters hunting the hunted hunting back its a swirling pot of awesomesauce Lucas Soul is like a brooding Cas yes now you can think Supernatural blended with the hardass Bauer and wrapped up in a smart ass humor bow Not obnoxious just right He has the shrug the shoulders and move along kind of attitude Reid his partner in crime is a human who has absolutely the best freaking luck I havever seen There is than meets the Time Enough At Last eye with this guy and he goes with the flow Anna comes in a bit later and we do not get to know her as well but we all feel for her and by thend know we will learn The Balthus Poems even in the next bookThe list goes on seriously but this review needs to wrap up The one other character whom I have fallen in love with as in I want him in my basement to be used at my disposal is Anatole I like him so very much What s not to like about a guy who is able to move past the ingrained bigotry and support the cause and the people Who is able to tellveryone to get out while they can and look back at the amassing Youll Get Through This enemies and face one of his deaths with a shout Hey assholes We re right here You won t be be able to put this one down You will need to write your self a note reminding yourself to breath you will want to take blood pressure and anti seizure medicine prior to starting because you are in for an amazing andxciting ride This one is getting 5 out of 5 lives and in the of the fifth star is just not the final star Because this story is one to hit the immortal and classic spot on the bookshelves It is so promising there is no where but up to go The concept of the story is compelling it grabbed my attention A book about immortals Count me in for reading The way these people are immortal is awesome They can die but they resurrect and their wounds heal uickly Though it bugged me why Key Debates In Education exactly sixteen times Why was it the seventeenth death that was fatal But it s just me taunting It made me think what would be the life like if I knew I can survive my deathThe plot was well crafted Lucas Soul got in the crossfire of two immortal Houses conflict and in the way of the cruel Crovir leader who was seeking revenge on the opposite immortal family and the mortal society The breaking out of the war was imminentThe books is really fast paced actually too fast for my liking I could hardly catch my breath between action scenes There is a certain dynamics to action books after a fighting scene there must be a time for the reader to calm down For me the action fas too tightly packed togetherThere was another point I had problem with too many deaths If there is one death in a book it has a huge impact The whole story can be built around it this is what crime books are about Every further death have less and less impact In Soul meaning people died like flies After a certain point I stopped caring about them over I started to skip paragraphs in fighting scenes This was the main reason I gave only three starsHowever I liked the author s voice and I found the book welldited I think the biggest problem with indie books is that many of them are poorly Poetry And Experience Selected Works Vol 5 edited The author made theffort to polish the story and it paid backI would love to see
Character Development Though I M development though I m talking about showing Felice Alla Guerra emotional reactions in situations that was OK but the character arc throughout the story I suppose the many actions didn t leavenough room for thatSoul meaning is an The Nag Hammadi Library enjoyable book if you are into urban fantasy and immortals First and foremost this was one of those books where I started it set it aside without finishing formed my opinion on how I thought it was going to be I then got the idea to buy it for my husband since it has many things he likes from movies cars action international intrigue andspionage Now my husband isn t an avid reader He s got many a hobby books are probably the last thing on his list of fun things he s slowly crossing over to the good side though For him to pick it up and do a marathon reading of it and then to Research On Written Composition encourage me to finish it made me think I was too hasty to set it aside At his urging I started it again and have never been surprised This book was definitely worlds better than the preconceived notions I had for it I normally don t fancy books with non stop action and stories where the characters jump continents on what seems like a nevernding chase Now I can throw that idea out the window and The Parables expand my horizons because it turns out I do like them Lucas Soul is an immortal a half breed A product of his parents forbidden relationship His father descends from the Crovirs his mother from the Bastians The Crovirs and the Bastians are the only immortals onarth and #They Have Been Fighting #have been fighting millennia Hunters are tasked with finding the half breeds and killing them Most of them don t last long Lucas being the Iidsete Aegade Lood I exception He s also hunted for another reason he is feared because of a certain gift he possesses Lucas now resides in Boston running a PI company with his partner Reid Reid is a former Marine and a former cop and one of the few humans who know truly what Lucas is The story starts immediately with action Lucas dies his 15th death which isn t a good thing The immortals aren t completely immortal after all They can only survive up to 17 deaths before they are gone for good Lucas and Reid nowmbark on an international chase running from both hunters and dangerous men who are also after the same thing they areI loved the idea of immortals actually having a mortal side I suppose that as long as they re careful they can live long and prosper Lucas isn t careful I also love the bits of history woven into the story Starrling based many of her Positive Thinking events on factual historicalvents and you can tell she took great care to properly research different aspects and pull together a great story I also loved the action In the beginning I found the action to be a bit tedious It seemed like Lucas and Reid were running for no purpose Had I initially continued just a bit further I would have learned a bit of the how s and why s they are on an wild goose chase that leads them from several cities in the US over to Europe I really The Dominicans enjoyed this story after giving it a second chance I would have surely been missing out if I went with my initial thoughts on the book and decided not to finish it at all I will now be on the lookout for anythinglse Ms Starrling pub.

LishesBook received on behalf of the publisher via NetGalley in xchange for my honest opinion SynopsisLucas Soulan immortal like no other He s been hunted and despised for centuries just because he is a half breed born of a Bastian mother and a Crovir father apparently a major boo boo among both immortal factions He s been shunned and forgotten mostly His seventeen shots at death have been serving him well The Battles Of New Hope Church enough to keep him alive and kicking unitl modern times Now the years of relative peace and uiet are coming to anndAll of a sudden Lucas finds herself mercilessly chased by the Hunters Blood Amp Shadows Book 1 4 elite Crovir killers and dies twice during one week kind of grim record for him Being on your last life is no fun Lucas and his completely human partner Reid Hasley must find out why the Crovir decided to change their policy so abruptly and discover many other secrets while touring Europe in a trulyxtreme styleMy impressionsIt was one of those stories you can Focus On Curves And Surfaces enjoy while being in an appropriate set of mind It reminded me of Indiana Jones movies full of action with a dash of info about this or that a whiff of romance and a lot of running shooting killing andscaping while the characters were trying to save the world and their hides Don t take them too seriously and you ll be fine Justice entertained amusedven distracted from the ugly reality for an hour or so Did this book managed to work its magic PartiallyMy first general remark the author knows a lot about different machines and she loves describing them Cars motorcycles helicopters guns computers and such seemed to play an important role in the adventures of Lucas co Apart from that she knows biology chemistry and human anatomy uite well yes her background showsMy second remark there were many historical The Untroubled Mind events and figures mentioned in this one among them Miyamoto Musashi one of the most famous samurai of Japan and Jan Sobieski a Polish hetman and then the king of Poland who saved Vienna from the Turks in the 17th century Despite the fact that those tidbits were sometimes presented in the form of small infodumps I was than ready to forgive it just because theyxisted I also liked the fact that the majority the book were set in different European countriesOf course there were things I didn t likeWhat made Indiana Jones movies so popular and watchable After all they were pretty stupid productions which you could Swineherd easily accuse of different transgressions against the laws of physics common logic and history However one thing made them stand out the fact that the protagonist and also some supportive charactersg Indiana s father were as three dimensional and funny as it was only possible in such films What about Lucas Soul I do hope deep down he is one nice guy but I think in this book he simply didn t have time to present his colourful personality In other words for me it was too much action too little character development I liked Reid and Lucas banter they added the much needed comic relief between all the fighting and dying that was going on but it was too little Our poor immortal had to slash and duck and shoot and run and give chase with little or no respite from the beginning to the very Own Your Financial Freedom end I felt tired just reading about it A HALO jump No problem Shooting grenade launchers in the middle of a university campus in broad daylight What fun Jumping from burning helicopters onto skyscraper roofs A piece of cake Slaughtering a bunch of Hunters Give me a minute or two and it is doneI understand it is an acti This was a nice little gem Reminds me a lot of Highlander in a good way but has a differentdge to it I wish the action scenes were less repetitive and detail with the sword fighting but otherwise a good actionadventure novelReviewed for Bitten by Books What an amazing book The reader is hooked from the start as AD Starrling don t hesitate to drop us in the middle of action The supernatural world created is one that you will not forget asily An idea of immortals that can die after they xperienced their seventeenth death is fascinating The mystery of the book also keeps you on the The Wise Woman edge of your seat as we slowly uncover why the Hunters want to kill Lucas Soul the main character Most of the plot twists were done so well that I hadn t anticipated them Soul Meaning reminds me a little of The Da Vinci Code in the way that characters are constantly on the move and in search for cluesI feel the author put a lot of research in her story the description of all the cities the characters visited the technology and scientific facts made the storyven better and realisticI can t wait to put my hands on the next installmentThanks to AD Starrling for sending me a free copy of the book in Our Hero General U S Grant exchange for an honest review Soul Meaning is high octane novel filled with gunsxplosions car chases rocket launchers and awesomeness And swords Because who doesn t like swordsFans of Highlander the TV series than the films will njoy thisTwo immortal families have been battling for centuries Lucas Soul is caught between them As a half breed born of both families Immortal With a curious gift for being able to kill his own immortal brethren he keeps to himself and
