The Soul Thief by Majanka Verstraete - Giveaway & Mini-Review


The Soul Thief
The Angel of Death Series # 1

Majanka Verstraete

Genre- YA Paranormal
Published By- Booktrope Publishing
Published On- November 11, 2014

When sixteen-year-old Riley is injured in a car crash and sees a girl stealing a boy’s soul, she’s convinced she’s hallucinating. But when she sees the same girl at the hospital later, she knows she wasn’t dreaming. That’s when Riley learns her secret heritage and who she really is: a halfling Angel of Death.

Riley must come to terms with her new reality and supernatural abilities, but before she can do this, girls her age start dying in mysterious circumstances. It’s up to Riley to figure out why, what the innocent victims have in common, and what she can do to stop them.

   



About the Author-
Majanka Verstraete begged her Mom to teach her how to read while she was still in kindergarten. By the time she finished fifth grade, she had read through the entire children’s section of her hometown library.

She wrote her first story when she was seven years old, and hasn’t stopped writing since. With an imagination that never sleeps, and hundreds of possible book characters screaming for her attention, writing is more than a passion for her.

She writes about all things supernatural for children of all ages. She’s tried to write contemporary novels before, but something paranormal always manages to crawl in.

Majanka is currently studying for her Master of Laws degree, and hopes one day to be able to combine her passions for law and writing. When she’s not writing, reading or studying, she likes watching “The Vampire Diaries” and “Game of Thrones,” spending time with her friends, or playing “World of Warcraft.”

So a little happy news. Last week I accepted a position with Booktrope as an editor/proofreader. That being said, I feel it is a conflict of interest to post my review of this book, which I only realized was published by Booktrope while preparing the post.

I apologize to the author, Majanka.

So, while I won't post a full review, I don't see any harm in telling you that I really enjoyed the story- especially the characters and the paranormal world the author created. The Soul Thief was a fast-paced enjoyable read :)
