Soulless Blog Tour

I'm just thrilled to be reviewing Crystal Collier's newest book in The Maiden of Time series...Soulless. Yep. And it was just as amazing as the first book in this series. I fell in love with it immediately. Previously, I'd described Moonless as a book filled with a darker Mr. Darcy. I continue that sentiment with Soulless to a degree, but let me tell you... Mr. Darcy (Kiren) loosens up a tad and becomes a little less dark, and a little more drool worthy. I love me some drool worthy men. Okay, before I go on here's a little bit about the story and it's wonderful author. Crystal Collier.

Tag Line: The Soulless are coming.

Log Line: When Alexia's wedding is destroyed by the Soulless—who then steal the only protection her people have—she's forced to unleash her true power and risk losing everything.

Short description:
Alexia manipulated time to save the man of her dreams, and lost her best friend to red-eyed wraiths. Still grieving, she struggles to reconcile her loss with what was gained: her impending marriage. But when her wedding is destroyed by the Soulless—who then steal the only protection her people have—she’s forced to unleash her true power.

And risk losing everything.

My review: Soulless sweeps you into Alexia and Kiren's world and doesn't let you go. Short chapters hurl you into the minds of the characters, allowing you to feel what they feel, see what they see. The descriptions are beautifully written. Crystal Collier has a way with words, a prose that is unmatched in this category. I hate spoilers so I'm not gonna spoil the story by giving too much away. But I do have two words. Chapter. Sixty. Whoa. Okay, so that was three words. Sorry. I've been waiting for that chapter. The ending left me with somewhat of a broken heart, but then with the turn of a page I saw hope...Timeless. Book three in this series is coming soon. Thank you Crystal. My suffering will end. Eventually. 

Now for some other words on Soulless.
