BOOK REVIEW: "A Torment Of Savages" by A.J. Locke
When your soul isn’t your own, you’ll do anything to get it back.
After months of danger and deadly threats, Selene Vanream finally has some much needed downtime and a chance to focus on mending her relationship with Micah. She’s even accepted a job working for The Paranormal Control Center to quietly resolve issues within the paranormal community. After the supernatural devastation New York City’s been through, quiet resolutions are best.But peace can’t last forever. As Selene and Kyo’s ghost embark on the search for Kyo’s body, Selene finds out firsthand the violent lengths the dead witches are willing to go to in order to keep their secrets safe. What’s more, a new, dark and deadly being has emerged from the In Between and is turning people into darkness-filled Savages intent on reaping souls until she gets the soul she’s really owed–Selene’s. This new evil is determined to get what she was promised, but not before innocent people pay the price, including someone very near to Selene’s heart.Now all Selene has to do is find out how her life became a bargaining chip to a psychotic monster, keep the ones she loves from danger, and make sure her soul isn’t ripped from her body and dragged to hell in the process. Some girls have all the fun.
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
The Reanimation Files are always a fun read, and book four continues with almost non-stop action and information. I love series that don't slow down, and when a story can give as much mental stimulation as this one does without overloading my mind, that's how I know the writer is top-notch.
I have always liked Selene and Ethan, Luna too, and I loved getting to know more about Kyo. With many series focusing on the paranormal community, few are standouts. Locke's latest just reaffirmed that her characters will be around for the long haul.
I didn't want to stop reading, and I didn't...till my battery died, that is. I love this series and can't wait for the next book!
5/5--a wild ride from beginning to end!
