After-life just got a lot more complicated
Maggie is a Soul Collector. It’s her job to transport souls from the Living Realm to the After – but during a mission to find a stolen soul, she ends up stuck in a teen mean girl’s body.
Trapped, Maggie’s soul is catapulted into Ally’s life – and the human world she hasn’t experienced for one hundred years. But, as a descendant of the most powerful beings in the After, Maggie must rescue Ally before the girl’s soul dies…
To survive, Maggie must uncover devastating secrets – because with one soul taken by a terrifying enemy, Maggie’s could be next!
About the Author:
Debut author for the YA Paranormal trilogy, The Life After. I am represented by Carina UK. I love to read, write, cook, and snuggle with my Wheaten Terrier as much as I can. I’m a huge fan of any book that strikes my fancy and I am always looking for recommendations!

I knelt down again next to Ally and reached out to touch her skin. Even though the sensation was unpleasant, I could feel her pulse as it rapidly declined.
“No,” I moaned. I looked up again to see if any of the Guard could help, but no one was around.
I looked back down at Ally. Her face was paling by the second. My soul started to tingle. I leaned closer to her body, reaching my hand out to touch her face again, when her arm moved toward mine.
I jumped back.
Heather pushed through the crowd. “Did she just move? Did I see her move?” Streaks of black mascara ran down her cheeks.
A ringing sensation tickled my ear and I tuned in to the True Soul’s presence. I looked at each human. The True Soul was close, but who had it? They all seemed equally shocked at the tragedy.
An uncomfortable pressure in my chest drew me closer to her body. My soul slanted toward hers until I was practically on top of her. I helplessly watched my hand morph and stretch toward her body.
“What the—?” I tried to pull back but the strength of whatever was happening had other ideas.
My hand disappeared first, then my arm, then my torso.
But before I could call for help, my world went dark.
This was a fun book and extremely well written. I was very impressed that this was a first time author. The story was fresh, with a fun take on soul collecting and how that is accomplished. I enjoyed visiting with the other-worldly visitors.
I found the heroine brave, complex with many issues to deal with, yet somewhat how you would expect someone to be after 100 years with no memories of being human. I look forward to reading more from this author and how she has many stories lined up for us, including a sequel to this one. I want to find out what happens next for Breanne and Andrew.
I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds.
