Voices of the Soul (Soul Seers One) by Rene Folsom

Orella (Ella) heard voices in her head, actually the thoughts of others, as long as she could remember. She and her mother were in a terrible car accident shortly before her 14th birthday. After Ella awoke in the hospital following the accident, she was brought to see her mother who was being kept alive on life support. Her mother talked to her in her head, explaining the gift that she had and that she was a soul seer. Her mother had this gift to

I've always enjoyed stories with twists and this anthology provided plenty of good ones. Twist has a great variety of stories, from the haunting style of Sweet Lenora to the interesting vampire lore found in Little Tchotchkes and the hilarious teenage angst of All I Want For Christmas. Each story is engaging and entertaining. The anthology covers almost the full gamut of paranormal creatures: mind readers, werewolves, vampires, ghosts, zombies, Mormons (yes, Mormons are paranormal here), witches ...more

This collection of short stories has something for all paranormal fans! The twists are very well done and most take you totally by surprise. It's hard to review an anthology of short stories without telling each of the stories, but they're all very well written and different from each other. If you need quick but satisfying reads, this book is well worth it! ...more

A brilliant anthology separated into 11 short stories. I don't want to ruin the surprise of any of the stories so has instead written by opinions of them all individually not giving the stories away.

Voice of the Soul - Rene Folsom
I absolutely loved this story! Very well written and I found myself drawn into the story. Will definitely be looking into reading the other novellas which continue this story.

Number 18 - Michael Loring

This Anthology is a great compilation of authors, most of whom I have not heard of before now. I enjoyed all the stories in here, and they kept me guessing throughout each one. There were a few stories I thought I had figured out half way through, just to be proven wrong. I wrote down the names of a few authors that I plan on looking up to see what else they have available to read, because I love their writing style.

I definitely recommend this book if you are looking for something spooky, and th

I really enjoyed this book and had it read within in two days. I always like to find new authors, and this was a glimpse into what they write. I have added a couple to my want to read another one list. They were also free of many typo's that really annoys me when I read many beta books. I do not like spoilers so I will give a brief review of each book.

Voices of the Soul: Wow! I really didn't see the twist that was coming in this book. It had me wanting to know more. Renee Folsom has been added

Overall 4.5

Interesting mix of stories. Some I loved but I liked the rest so I will go with a four because I prefer my stories longer and meatier but I would give it an extra half star if I had that option. And since its an anthology I'll be short and too the point on each

Voices of the Soul - I really did love this one even though I generally hate that kind of ending

Number 18 - The story kept me reading.

Sweet Lenora - This story didn't pull me in as much as some of the others.

This book was an adventures read.Each story was vivid and full of imagery.There were a few stories I found to be predictable,but I think with so many vampire stories it's hard not to be.My top 3 stories were:Voices of the soul, Bloodlines and Metronome. "Voice" was a great way to start the readings.I was on the journey with the character and the ending through me for a loop. Bloodlines use of history and religious elements blended beautifully.Great imagery that you can see the battle unfold. And ...more

Voices of the Soul - I was really enjoying this story, until the end. The ending ruined it for me. But before that it was a good paranormal love story.

Number 18 - liked this story, and liked the twist at the end.

Sweet Lenora - This story was just ok for me. I really didn't care much about Lenora, and I felt she was a little weak willed.

Truth or Dare - I liked the beginning of the story.

Suburban Zombie - I thought this was funny and original. I liked all the dark humor.

This is a great anthology filled with awesome stories that will leave you wanting more and some really amazing authors! I loved each and every story in this anthology, all are 5 stars.

Rene Folsom- Soul Seers 1: Great short read, does end with you wanting more and wondering what is happening, but all novellas are out now. I love Ella and Jonah!

Michael Loring- Number 18: Loved this story, left me wanting more!! Michael's werewolves are awesome, they aren't your sissy wolves!!

A very nice anthology here, much better than most horror collections that I've read. None of the stories were bad, although there were a couple that I didn't quite warm to, as well as a handful that I enjoyed, and two - Voices of the Soul and Bloodlines - that I thought were piercingly beautiful.

Voices I have in single ebook form, and I've been planning to reread the whole Soul Seers series, so I skipped it this time round, but I know that it was one of my top five (out of nearly 400!) books rea

This anthology contains 11 stories. I will go through each story in the order they come in the book, and then in the end I will tell you which ones was my favorites and what I thought overall about this anthology. But before I get there, you should know that this anthology IS with a twist. Each story had to have a twist in it – and let me tell you, some of these I did NOT see coming!
So, let’s begin with the first story:

It is always hard to review an anthology of short stories, especially one where each story is written by a different author. Some authors resonate more with the reader than others. In Paranormal Anthology with a Twist, you have eleven stories, each one completely different from the last. The thread that holds them all together is the "twist" that each one has.

I think that I'll stick to what worked best for me (focus on the good). One of my favorite indie authors, Jason Brant, has a great little

So many of these stories were made with such creative imaginations and I absolutely loved this anthology. It was even better than the first one. There were so many twists and turns that I didn't see coming. Some of the stories left me thinking "what the hell just happened"? That was the anthology's intention and it has succeeded. The endings were unpredictable. Especially with the story Truth or Dare. It completely caught me off guard and I loved the theme of it. The classic college kids playing ...more

I was going to do a mini review for each of the stories within the anthology, but then I realised just how large this post would be.
I've never been overly keen on anthologies, in the past I've always felt like I was missing out on the bigger story. This is a great anthology of shorts, and works as a great introduction to 11 new to me authors. There are a few books that I have seen written by a few of these authors, but I wasn't ready to take the jump into buying their work but having seen sampl

I enjoyed this book more than the Apocalypse one! These stories were more along the storyline I enjoy. But, they were both great and had wonderful authors! I loved the first story in this one. I read all of the books in the Soul Seers series! Rene Folsum is a great author! My other favorite was Suburban Zombie! By the title I was a little unsure but it was fantastic! Hilarious and I loved it! Anthony Lance hit a home run on that story! This was a great collection of stories and would highly reco ...more

I really enjoyed this book. I love paranormal books, so I was excited to read this one. I love how the authors had to have some criteria but had created such different stories. I think they all did a great job. I was shocked and amazed by the twists these stories had. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves paranormal stories. The stories are short but not too short that you feel like you are missing something. This is a great read!

Talk about stories with a twist and some with a What the Heck! Liked all the stories, some more then others, but overall this anthology was a great read!

1. Voices of the Soul- Loved this story from the beginning was so in gross in the 2 characters story that I didn't see Rene cranked her semi truck up and plowed me over at the end, literally messaged her saying What the Heck???
2.#18- Wow Creepy stalker & his POV is how it's told, then Karma hits.
