Book Review: Sweet Soul

Title: Sweet Soul (Sustaining Souls Trilogy #1)

Author: Lucretia Stanhope




When an erotic stranger, Juliano, walks into Beth’s life, the stress from finals fades into the background. Ludicrous words like witches, wolves, and powers are tossed around, upending what is real and unreal. On top of everything else, something is stalking her. Is it only a coincidence it started the day Juliano strolled into the café? Which of her instincts should she follow when one demands she run to his bed and the other screams she run away from the danger… him?


My Review

5/5 Stars

Beth is a normal girl. Or so she thinks. When the handsome and mysterious Juliano enters her life, everything changes, and Beth makes a startling discovery about herself. One that will change the way she sees the world forever.

As always with Ms. Stanhope’s books, I was hooked from the opening chapter. From the moment we learn of the curse, I couldn’t stop reading, wondering how it would impact Beth and Juliano. As the tension mounts, Beth and Juliano’s relationship gradually develops. While I liked Beth, and thought she was easy to root for, I found myself more drawn to Juliano.

This story covers a lot of the concepts we see in Ms. Stanhope’s books: the struggle between good and evil and the question of how well light and darkness can coexist together.

All in all, a fantastic paranormal read.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
