Save My Soul (Book 1)

Save My Soul (Book 1) - K.S. Haigwood I am not really sure how to classify this book. It is a Paranormal with religious undertones but it also has premarital sex. I am have no problem with that, but traditionally somebody looking for a Christian read doesn't want sex and regular paranormal readers are not looking for as much god talk. This makes it difficult to see exactly who the target audience is.

I generally like the book and the story. There is a great flow to the book and the characters. I did think it was a bit tricky all coming from Kendra's POV, it limits you to only what she knows or is told. It might have been nice to have a little of Adam and his skepticism. Or Ryan, with his guardian angel angst.

Kendra has moments of immaturity and times when she seems really promiscuous. Not sure how a Christian readers are going to take her friends-with-benefits relationship. It also appears almost every guy in the book is interested in her. Don't get me wrong, she has some really winning moments, but there are a lot of curve balls as well.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Erin Mallon, who does a very nice job of helping to connect with the main character. Her voice is rather breathy at times, but nothing I could not handle. She has a steady quick pace, another thing I enjoy. Her voices were all distinct and consistent throughout. The emotions seemed off at times, some moments were dropped while others seemed exaggerated. Still it was a comfortable listen.

Overall, I enjoyed the book, I was just thrown by the seeming contradictions. I will definitely be looking for the next book in the series, I just have to know! I love a bit of drama and this one had me tearing up a few times!!
