The Soul's Agent by Wendy Knight


For as long as there have been people, there has been a fear of the dark. Mothers tell their children there isn’t anything in the shadows that isn’t there in the light.

They are wrong.

The reason humanity is afraid of the dark is because that’s when demons come out to play. The ghosts that fight them can’t come out until the sun goes down, either. And Soul’s Agents, like Navi? They’re just normal, boring people until the moon claims the sky.

And then they aren’t.

Death allows lost souls one last chance. Fight with the Agents against demons and darkness and evil and they won’t spend eternity roasting on a spit. It seems like an easy enough choice, but apparently roasting is easy and requires little effort, and fighting, well…

Fighting is hard.

Twenty-two year old Navi is an Agent, and she is good at what she does. Her only distraction is the boy who broke her heart four years ago—especially when the demons she hunts start hunting him, and she’s the only one who can keep him alive.


~Jewelz Review~
We've all read several paranormal books by now - if you haven't you've been under a rock or something. But I've never read a story quite like The Soul's Agent. It's a unique take on the "demon hunter" concept. Navi is not only trying to destroy demons, but she's also trying to save souls (or help souls save themselves) - souls who would otherwise be literally left to rot in Hell. I really enjoyed this take on redemption - the idea of second chances and the freedom to choose your destiny. Death himself was a pretty cool character as well.

While Navi is this super amazing demon hunter by night, she's also stuck in a bit of a love triangle by day. Alec and his roommate, Bryson, both have their sights set on Navi. Alec has the advantage/disadvantage of having been in a relationship with Navi while they were in high school. I'm not a huge fan of love triangles, but I did enjoy how this one played out. 

Overall, this was a fun read - it was easy to escape into Navi's world and forget that life was happening around me. I will admit that I feel like the story was left unfinished - I'm hoping there's a sequel out soon (hint, hint)

honest disclosure ~ I received a review copy from the author
FYI ~ clean read, mild language

~About Wendy Knight~
Wendy Knight was born and raised in Utah by a wonderful family who spoiled her rotten because she was the baby. Now she spends her time driving her husband crazy with her many eccentricities (no water after five, terror when faced with a live phone call, etcetera, etcetera). She also enjoys chasing her three adorable kids, playing tennis, watching football, reading, and hiking. Camping is also big: her family is slowly working toward a goal of seeing all the National Parks in the U.S.

You can usually find her with at least one Pepsi nearby, wearing ridiculously high heel for whatever the occasion may be. And if everything works out just right, she will also be writing.
