Today's review is on Judgment of Souls by Margarita Felices
In a strange twist of writing, Judgment of Souls is the third book in this new and fast-paced vampire series. The author's knowledge about the "real life" places she uses in the story is very impressive, and the way she describes the the world around her characters makes you feel as if you are sitting in the front row watching everything happen around you. (I could swear I could feel the smoothness of the red velvet curtains and smell the french pastries.)
Rachel, the main character, is a strong and independent woman born from two vampires and "embraced" at just sixteen years of age. When she awoke from her transition she found that things were not the same as they once were. The man that she loved and thought had loved her back had stolen the Book of Cain. And because her parents were the ones that were guarding it, they had been banished. Hiding her parents somewhere safe while they "slept", Rachel has been on the hunt for Max for hundreds of years in order to make things right.
Heading into a club on Halloween, Rachel is instantly drawn to the clubs owner Daniel and he to her. Little did they know that both of them were fated to be together in order to find and protect the book from Max and thwart his evil plans for it.
There is no denying Rachel is in love with Daniel. But he's a mortal, it could never work between them. Or could it. If only she knew how to tell Daniel who she truly was. What she truly was.
I personally would have liked a bit more romance between Rachel and Daniel, and a bit more of a goodbye between him and his friends, but that may be just my preference. I also would have liked to have seen a little more editing done on the book. The punctuation was a bit all over the place, but other than that it was a good read. I'll have to keep my eye out for the second and first books in the series.
