    BEST. BOOK. OF. THE. YEAR. Y'ALL This is not my first meeting with David Dalglish. I enjoyed his Shadowdance series though I never actually finished it, and absolutely adored his Seraphim trilogy. Suffice to say is that I had high expectations on this one, and was also a bit sca...

    Soulkeeper is an epic fantasy with a huge amount of heart. I really loved Devin as a a protagonist. He?s a bit of an old fashioned hero. He has kindness in him, unwavering intent and the character to make the right choice over the easy choice. As a Soulkeeper and it is his job to ...

    It's been way too long since I smashed through a book like this in just a few days but holy shit this book is freaking amazing! I love Devin and Puffy and Tes but holy hell do I love Tommy more. I wasn't entirely sold on Jacaranda at first but as the book went on I actually found mysel...

    Interesting First I will start by saying that I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. I liked this book. The world building was done well and is interesting. Although I would like to see more of a background for the characters and the world in the following books. The only t...

    *Need to Review Notes: Somewhat "young" in tone but overall, there are cool little twists in how certain characters are portrayed and excellent backstory for the world. Giving it 4 stars for the overall feel of the story. It's more like 3.5 in my head but the narrator was great ...

    This is a fantasy novel that follows the taste of the good old traditional fantasy tales in the manner of Eddings, and Tolkien. I enjoyed the novel. It has a likable cast of characters, and the book is not clear a to who the real villain is. The worldbuilding was nicely integrated with...

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest unbiased review. I've noticed the description of the book on here has changed, I think the latest iteration is better than the previous one. While I do enjoy fantasy novels, I prefer ones shorter in length. This book ...

    Enslaved! I couldn?t put it down. I was sucked right into the action. It was like reading Revelations, written to continue with Genesis on a psychedelic. The author forced me to care about the whole crew he assembled for his big adventure, who reminded me of a RPG party, if you go...

    4.4 / 5 stars Originally reviewed on: https://arefugefromlife.wordpress.com/ Soulkeeper was my 9th Dalglish book, and honestly one of the better ones. I?m generally a fan of him?I mean, a lot of his books were good, yet few were solid, 5-star reads (mostly 3.5 ? 4). Soulkee...

    It?s like The Witcher minus the everything. I know Dalglish has an editor, because he thanks her in the acknowledgements. But I feel this book could have used a LOT more editorial direction and involvement. There was just so much going on that distracted from The Big Problem. ...

    4.5 stars This book takes horror and gore to the next level. I can take it usually but some of the things done to people in this book were really twisted and horrifying, they were on Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer level. It was kind of disturbing. Aside from that nightmare, I had a...

    As soon as I saw this in the library, I grabbed it, knowing the author from his previous books, and knowing this would be a book I would love. Yes, I loved it. And to know there's more to come of this series is exciting! He's not just joining the ranks of the greats, as it quotes on th...

    I did not read the reviews so didn't have any expectations or ideas about the book really. It seems its another man against magic creature book. Humans and others don't understand each other and humans are arrogant and hateful of what they don't understand. I thought Devin would be an ...

    A straight forward S&S adventure. No wasted time on rationale explanations of why the world exists, why the magic works. Lawful good heros vs. chaotic evil. Lots of monsters for battle. Civilians died by the thousands. At least that was my first impression. From a slow start the...

    4.5 stars This book takes horror and gore to the next level. I can take it usually but some of the things done to people in this book were really twisted and horrifying, they were on Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer level. It was kind of disturbing. Aside from that nightmare, I had a...

    As soon as I saw this in the library, I grabbed it, knowing the author from his previous books, and knowing this would be a book I would love. Yes, I loved it. And to know there's more to come of this series is exciting! He's not just joining the ranks of the greats, as it quotes on th...

    I did not read the reviews so didn't have any expectations or ideas about the book really. It seems its another man against magic creature book. Humans and others don't understand each other and humans are arrogant and hateful of what they don't understand. I thought Devin would be an ...

    A straight forward S&S adventure. No wasted time on rationale explanations of why the world exists, why the magic works. Lawful good heros vs. chaotic evil. Lots of monsters for battle. Civilians died by the thousands. At least that was my first impression. From a slow start the...

    I am a big fan of David Dalglish and his ability to twist the familiar into something unique. This book introduced a violent and desperate world where forgotten gods are flexing their muscles. Not a new concept of Dalglish so I was able to follow the chaotic journey. I quickly came to ...

    You know when you are hurting and in pain and you just want to find THE book that takes you away to a different world? This is that book!! I felt it drawing me in by the first 20 pages and by the time I got to pg 50, I was happily a captive. I don't give 5 stars easily but because ...

    I loved the amount of detail David Dalglish put into this story to describe the mythical creatures, the magic system, and the fight scenes. My favorite human character was definitely Tommy; a gay Wise man who gained the power to cast spells when the magic system and creatures woke u...

    First book I've read by David Daglish and won't be the last. "Soulkeeper" is the first book in a new series by the author. By and large, the work is composed of standard conventions and tropes in high fantasy. In other words, if you're expecting the "usual suspects" you won't be dis...

    One an done. The first book of this new trilogy was not enough to capture my desire to read any more. There were moments when the writing and plot were outstanding. But it was outweighed by the parts that were tedious, characterization that was shallow and sometimes just too unbelievab...

    I loved the premise. It was a quick, fairly satisfying read. That said, this isn't the type of book I normally choose to read. It hooks you in fairly quickly, then keeps moving. I really learned to love the characters. I may or may not read the rest of this trilogy when it comes out...

    OMG!!!! That was a fantastic read. From cover to cover I was involved in the story, the characters and the saga. The ending was perfect and most important the characters were not weepy and whiny. They were strong, they suffered and they loved. ...

    I am a big fan of David Dalglish and his ability to twist the familiar into something unique. This book introduced a violent and desperate world where forgotten gods are flexing their muscles. Not a new concept of Dalglish so I was able to follow the chaotic journey. I quickly came to ...

    You know when you are hurting and in pain and you just want to find THE book that takes you away to a different world? This is that book!! I felt it drawing me in by the first 20 pages and by the time I got to pg 50, I was happily a captive. I don't give 5 stars easily but because ...

    I loved the amount of detail David Dalglish put into this story to describe the mythical creatures, the magic system, and the fight scenes. My favorite human character was definitely Tommy; a gay Wise man who gained the power to cast spells when the magic system and creatures woke u...

    First book I've read by David Daglish and won't be the last. "Soulkeeper" is the first book in a new series by the author. By and large, the work is composed of standard conventions and tropes in high fantasy. In other words, if you're expecting the "usual suspects" you won't be dis...

    One an done. The first book of this new trilogy was not enough to capture my desire to read any more. There were moments when the writing and plot were outstanding. But it was outweighed by the parts that were tedious, characterization that was shallow and sometimes just too unbelievab...

    I loved the premise. It was a quick, fairly satisfying read. That said, this isn't the type of book I normally choose to read. It hooks you in fairly quickly, then keeps moving. I really learned to love the characters. I may or may not read the rest of this trilogy when it comes out...

    ??Hundreds of years, we slept. Buried beneath the ground, like seeds. Locked in the sky, like water within clouds. We slept, so you might multiply like rodents. We are angry, and you ask why??? ~ I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH Go read it!!! End of review. ~ Okay... okay... I?...

    BEST. BOOK. OF. THE. YEAR. Y'ALL This is not my first meeting with David Dalglish. I enjoyed his Shadowdance series though I never actually finished it, and absolutely adored his Seraphim trilogy. Suffice to say is that I had high expectations on this one, and was also a bit sca...

    As always this review can also be found on my blog The Tattooed Book Geek: https://thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress... 3.5 stars. Devin Eveson is a Soulkeeper. Soulkeepers are part of the Keeping Church who worship the Three Sisters (Alma, Lyra and Anwyn) and travel the land of the ...

    Soulkeeper is an epic fantasy with a huge amount of heart. I really loved Devin as a a protagonist. He?s a bit of an old fashioned hero. He has kindness in him, unwavering intent and the character to make the right choice over the easy choice. As a Soulkeeper and it is his job to ...

    Excellent dark and dastardly fantasy. Full review to follow. ...

    4 ? Interesting. I enjoyed. The words on the cover of the book basically explains a lot. "The magic had returned" " So have to monsters" Devin a Soulkeeper helps to send souls on and beyond but is also train for the unthinkable with his sword and gun at hand. When he finds tha...

    I need book 2. I have discovered a talented author who creates worlds and characters to disappear in. In Soulkeeper we are introduced to Devin who starts out having a normalish day for a guy of his profession to quickly discovering that magic is real and makes some interesting ma...

    It's been way too long since I smashed through a book like this in just a few days but holy shit this book is freaking amazing! I love Devin and Puffy and Tes but holy hell do I love Tommy more. I wasn't entirely sold on Jacaranda at first but as the book went on I actually found mysel...

    Interesting First I will start by saying that I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. I liked this book. The world building was done well and is interesting. Although I would like to see more of a background for the characters and the world in the following books. The only t...

    *Need to Review Notes: Somewhat "young" in tone but overall, there are cool little twists in how certain characters are portrayed and excellent backstory for the world. Giving it 4 stars for the overall feel of the story. It's more like 3.5 in my head but the narrator was great ...

    This is a fantasy novel that follows the taste of the good old traditional fantasy tales in the manner of Eddings, and Tolkien. I enjoyed the novel. It has a likable cast of characters, and the book is not clear a to who the real villain is. The worldbuilding was nicely integrated with...

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest unbiased review. I've noticed the description of the book on here has changed, I think the latest iteration is better than the previous one. While I do enjoy fantasy novels, I prefer ones shorter in length. This book ...

    Enslaved! I couldn?t put it down. I was sucked right into the action. It was like reading Revelations, written to continue with Genesis on a psychedelic. The author forced me to care about the whole crew he assembled for his big adventure, who reminded me of a RPG party, if you go...

    4.4 / 5 stars Originally reviewed on: https://arefugefromlife.wordpress.com/ Soulkeeper was my 9th Dalglish book, and honestly one of the better ones. I?m generally a fan of him?I mean, a lot of his books were good, yet few were solid, 5-star reads (mostly 3.5 ? 4). Soulkee...

    It?s like The Witcher minus the everything. I know Dalglish has an editor, because he thanks her in the acknowledgements. But I feel this book could have used a LOT more editorial direction and involvement. There was just so much going on that distracted from The Big Problem. ...

    4.5 stars This book takes horror and gore to the next level. I can take it usually but some of the things done to people in this book were really twisted and horrifying, they were on Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer level. It was kind of disturbing. Aside from that nightmare, I had a...

    As soon as I saw this in the library, I grabbed it, knowing the author from his previous books, and knowing this would be a book I would love. Yes, I loved it. And to know there's more to come of this series is exciting! He's not just joining the ranks of the greats, as it quotes on th...

    I did not read the reviews so didn't have any expectations or ideas about the book really. It seems its another man against magic creature book. Humans and others don't understand each other and humans are arrogant and hateful of what they don't understand. I thought Devin would be an ...

    A straight forward S&S adventure. No wasted time on rationale explanations of why the world exists, why the magic works. Lawful good heros vs. chaotic evil. Lots of monsters for battle. Civilians died by the thousands. At least that was my first impression. From a slow start the...

    I am a big fan of David Dalglish and his ability to twist the familiar into something unique. This book introduced a violent and desperate world where forgotten gods are flexing their muscles. Not a new concept of Dalglish so I was able to follow the chaotic journey. I quickly came to ...

    You know when you are hurting and in pain and you just want to find THE book that takes you away to a different world? This is that book!! I felt it drawing me in by the first 20 pages and by the time I got to pg 50, I was happily a captive. I don't give 5 stars easily but because ...

    I loved the amount of detail David Dalglish put into this story to describe the mythical creatures, the magic system, and the fight scenes. My favorite human character was definitely Tommy; a gay Wise man who gained the power to cast spells when the magic system and creatures woke u...
