To walk the earth she must feed her hollow soul.

Some of the most beautiful people in the world are not human. They have no soul, feel no emotion and are pure evil. You can tell by the color of their dark, dead eyes. Samuel Glaus knows this. He is after all the son of a human mother and soulless father. He is, half human and a hunter of the soulless. He is also in love with one who cannot love him back.

Thalya is a soulless creature, but unlike others of her kind, she does not kill to feed her hollow soul. She hungers only for emotion and above all she hungers for Samuel’s love. Her enemy. Her redemption. And she’s willing to kill for it.

Adult situations. Violence. Must be 18+

***Amanda – #NerdGirlWitch’s Review***

This book was Amazing! I couldn’t put it down for a second! LaVerne’s mind is absolutely brilliant and with the twists and turns in this one, you won’t sit sill at all! I was amazed by everything in the book, right from the characters to the scenes. LaVerne sets a scene with brilliance and flare, I was on the edge of my seat to see what she would come up with next with the turn of the page.

The dynamics between Samual and Thalya were amazing! you could literally feel them sizzle right off the page! They fought really well together and I would love to see what the future brings for them and all of Thalya’s kind. Adam was a very INTERESTINGcharacter and I loved the scene where he played his music. I felt like I was right there in the room with Samual and Thalya, Adam was such a strong and commanding person that even while drawing you in he still warned you away as well.

The interesting thing about the book was the bad guys were sort of good guys but had potential to be bad or good depending on which way they decided to go with their lives. Which in a way is like everyone else, you choose every day where your going to go in life and you have to choose to take it in a positive light or not. Thalya’s people where no different but with superpowers….lol….which made their decisions all the more important.

LaVerne Thompson is a wonderful and an amazing author and I loved this story! I can’t wait to see what LaVerne comes up with for these characters next!
