Life after Life
Now Maggie has been given the chance of her after-life to become a Guard, nothing will stand in her way. Not even the undeniable attraction she feels for her trainer and past love--Jackson. But when the battle between Shadowed and Guard begins again which side will she choose?
When her boss, Felix, partners Jackson and Maggie up with Ally and Cooper to investigate terrifying Shadowed activity in a small New England town, she doesn't think it could get any worse. Jackson and Cooper barely tolerate each other and this time, Maggie isn't just proving her loyalty to the Guard during one mission...she has a side mission too. One so secret and so dangerous she can't tell a soul...
Dear Soul Possessed,
I have mixed feelings about you. Very mixed feelings.
I didn’t make an attempt to predict you as I had with your older sibling, Soul Taken. I find that not predicting is sometimes more fun. But I am not mind blown. I find that I’m not that mind blown with a lot of books these days because when you get to a certain amount of books, some things tend to be repetitive.
But you, Soul Possessed, have something that I like about you. Your world. The After sounds awesome – I think I probably mentioned that back in Soul Taken. I also want to know more about the wards that appear quite often, but I’m probably not going to get much of an answer if I look again into your depths and many layers.
Obviously, I don’t like the villain. But I don’t feel anything for the “demonic” presence within you. I’m that bystander who watches a little kid get pushed and pulled on the playground by the big kid and his cronies, and I do nothing. I just sit and watch as the events play out and feel nothing at all.
You are that weird one that I like but don’t feel anything for. It’s like a best friend having a crush on you and finally making a move, only finding out after making the move that you don’t feel anything for that friend. Just an affection. A fondness. Something that you would feel for a sibling.
I don’t know if I want to meet your little sibling. I want to, maybe just for the sense of finality. But I don’t want to, because I’m pretty sure I’ll feel the same way for him as I do for you.
I am sorry to inform you, Soul Possessed, that my soul is not possessed by you. But there will be others who will be possessed by your world and your characters, and simply everything there is about you because I’m sure you deserve it. I’m just not one of them.
