"Fans of Underworld will not want to miss this fast-paced, action-packed debut!" --Jess Haines, author of "Enslaved by the Others"
"Kat is a complex, compelling character who takes us on a wild ride. Hold on and enjoy!" --Alexandra Ivy, "New York Times "bestselling author
Kat is the very thing she hates as she is tainted by vampire blood. She's been given the nickname of Lady Death and continues to hunt down rogue vampires but is tired of being at the beck and call of those she doesn't trust. It's a harsh life but she's managed to make some friends and there is no way she will ever idly stand by and not help those she cares about. When Sienna shows up distraught and confused Kat knows she must do something drastic, but it's going to be more dangerous then anything she's done before. Forced to trust a demon, Kat puts her very soul in peril as she undertakes a journey to either save Sienna or damn them both eternally!
Kat is certainly a kickass heroine but in this story we got to see a more human side to her as she questions herself and falters. Forced to make choices that see her querying her very own humanity, it was a simple storyline and if honest, I'm still left with questions. I do like Kat, but at times I want to shake her as her actions seem more than a little confused but nevertheless I kept hoping for well, frankly just more. She's not the most emotional heroine and her relationships seem very ambivalent. She lives with a guy who summons demons and yet he seems very shy and naive which never makes sense to me. I mean big, bad, scary demons don't faze him but being teased about a girl does. There's also the werewolves in this world Mr Moore has created that I just wanted more from this time. I love Jeremy, the one-armed werewolf, who is close to Kat. It's obvious his feelings towards her are deepening but for Kat there's only one guy, and that's the elusive Jonathan, but as always in Kat's life, it's complicated!
Did I enjoy Kat's return to Delai? I think I did actually and I will certainly look out for the next book in this series. I'm still curious about Sienna and would really like answers to my questions. It's not an awful cliffhanger or anything but there's certainly scope for this storyline to be fleshed out. Vampires, werewolves, demons and even the odd angel populate the world within Souls of the Damned and it's quite an addictive read.
Definitely recommended to lovers of urban fantasy but not particularly romantic so take note.
