Dusan is on a feeding frenzy after twenty-five years of hibernation. As a soul eater, he cannot kiss without killing. He crosses paths with Aine while being hunted by the Phoenician priest Gregori, and soon discovers Aine is also on the hit list. Falling for her fast, the ultimate soul eater's Armageddon is about to happen.
When I selected this book to review, I made a mistake. I thought Dusan was a vampire and he isn’t. A soul eater is completely different, more like the Grim Reaper and yet not. I found myself spellbound throughout the entire story. There were even a few times where I found I had overrun my lunch break at work because I couldn’t put the book down.
Dusan is part horror, part supernatural, and part fantasy. It makes you re-evaluate what is good and what is evil. It can even make you question what you consider mercy.
I loved the storyline, I believed the characters, but I had a little trouble with the writing. Then there was the mention of “Sean”. I have no idea where he came from or why he “appeared”. He’s mentioned three times within about a half dozen paragraphs about ¾ of the way through the book…and then he “disappears”.
All in all, this is a mesmerizing story and but I suggest setting a timer if you like to read at your desk over lunch.
I’d love to read a follow-up about Dusan and Aine.
