Soulborn – A Review
When Hadley Moore, a driven and highly competent London auctioneer is introduced to her new boss, Nathaniel Carlisle, sparks fly and her world is turned upside down — literally.
Soulborn is real page-turner of a story. Exciting, gripping, funny, and steamy, the characters leap off the page, and the world building is perfectly on par.
Hadley is sassy, intelligent, and independent, and Nathaniel protective, caring, bossy, and somewhat mysterious — at least in the beginning.
There’s an immediate push-pull connection between the two where they’re both trying to find their feet in a blossoming relationship during a conflict that could see them both killed.
Both characters are perfectly developed with their personalities and characteristics growing page by page. They have both great emotional depth and detailed physical descriptions, giving the reader a comprehensive image of how they look, act, and think.
Hadley and Nathaniel come alive from the very beginning, and you get a real sense of who they are as the story progresses.
The world building is also highly detailed and well thought out to create a great sense of their surroundings with both sights, sounds, and smells.
Weaver has an intuitive sense for using a rich and flowing language to make the story engaging and captivating. It’s constantly driven forward through every action and event to keep the reader engrossed, fascinated, and eager to continue on to the next chapter.
I loved how this story grew word for word and chapter by chapter. Little details are constantly added but done in such a seamless way you barely notice it until it’s come alive in your head like a movie reel. It’s very easy to get lost in the pages and lose all track of time. I kept turning the pages, unable to put it down, and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
