Now, a soldier for the creepy-crawly fighting squad (and able to kick butt better than anyone) Kydia can protect the people she loves from the horrible demons that skirt the shadows. But Kydia didn’t count on Grady, a swoon-worthy mystery man that completely throws her off her game. Grady takes the term creepy to a whole new level, strangely fascinated with Kydia to an obsessive degree.
As Kydia struggles to understand what Grady is and what his interest in her is all about, a new and more dangerous breed of monster skates into town, one the Legion thought was extinct.
Kydia finds herself the center of an archaic retaliation that puts her life in jeopardy. She can battle monsters until the cows come home, but is she powerless when it comes to saving herself from a curse that threatens to break her soul?
Kydia is a kick ass member of the elite Legion and determined to help fight the monsters preying on innocents. What she hadn't expected was to meet what's clearly an enemy, but to find herself strangely drawn to him. The hunk known as Grady is persistent, annoying, and yet totally impossible to ignore but he brings danger with him and Kydia won't fall for his tricks. The monsters are invading town and Kydia is prepared to fight, but as long forgotten creatures reappear it seems blood is about to be spilt!
Okay, I did find this an easy book to lose myself in and really liked the plucky heroine, Kydia. Grady, I admit I pegged from the word go but the background concerning him and his family made for a great plot involving vengeance and misunderstandings. Lots of action and a sweet romance that just playfully builds up. I enjoyed the pace and have to admit it kept me guessing with lots of misdirection. For my personal taste, there's too many types of monsters described initially and unfortunately, that did mean I was trying to remember who or what begat what. Perhaps some sort of list or glossary might have made it simpler, but it's a minor niggle. What's clear is that as this series progresses there's a wealth of creatures and characters for the author to use and that's surely a good thing.
So in conclusion, Broken Soul was a good way to spend my afternoon. An ideal read for those who enjoy paranormal stories but clearly there's still room for development. The ending has left me wanting more as it's a bit of a cliffhanger but as the start of a new NA romance series, it was a really interesting read. Oh and it would be remiss not to mention that fabulous cover!
