A Soul’s Worth by D. N. Hoxa
Posted by brriske
A white-winged Angel and a boy without a soul.
A witch’s descendant and a desperate, merciless fighter.
Their lives are about to collide.
For thousands of years, the Demon Hunter and his human helpers have traveled all around the world and released souls from the Devil’s hold. But the past century didn’t go as well as it was supposed to.
Forces beyond anyone’s imagination have spent decades preparing for the events that are about to be put into motion. And it all begins with the boy without a soul…
***This is a story of love, deceit, magic and other extraordinary things, told in 4 different points of view.
This book is the first in the Chronicles of the Demon Hunter series and ends in a cliffhanger. All of the celestial beings are present in this book from Angels and human helpers to the Devil and the Grim Reaper. Adrian and his brothers make a deal with the devil and must do whatever the Devil wants in order to cure their sick dad. When the Devil wants Adrian to kill an innocent girl, Willow, he tries to break the oath.
>Willow has hidden powers she never knew about and the Devil, Eae, the angel, and a group of Protectors all want her. Adrian falls for Willow and sacrifices his family for her safety. This book has a lot of twists and turns. Characters pop up that aren’t explained all that well, such as Trip and his minion and the Protectors. These protectors are supposedly everywhere with all sorts of powers, yet they never appear to help in the second half of the book at all. Actually a lot of the book is Adrian and Eae searching for Willow or Willow and Eae searching for Adrian.
>Some Angels are even portrayed as the bad guys, while the Devil shows compassion at a certain point towards his brother, Eae. The idea that the angels need humans to help save souls is a strange one. I wish more was explained about that. The basics of this book are interesting. The characters are easy to get to know and compelling, but the racing, running and searching was a bit long winded.
>This book is appropriate for a young adult (16+) to adult audience. There are no sexual situations or extreme violence. I am giving the book 4 hearts. I am a reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock.
