Fairfield Detective Alexis (Alex) Martinez is in pursuit of a killer so brutal, he holds an entire city in the grip of terror. His victims are picked at random; their torture and mutilation, unspeakable. As the body count rises, Alex's investigation puts her among the hunted-not by the serial, but by a much greater threat: a secret society with members imbedded inside worl ...more

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review by the author via Lovers of Paranormal.

This book was so good on so many levels. As I started to review and thought about the book as a whole it struck me that I hadn't had to constantly re-read sentences to make sense of typos, spelling or grammatical errors throughout the book. To me that earned this book another star! It is so rare these days that I can actually say that.

This was a well thought out intelligently written story. The idea of

I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.

Firstly I would like to thank the author for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this book.

Well, after a long time I read a good mystery/thriller book and the paranormal punch made this story just my type of read. I loved the pacing and the author didn't go on explaining a single scene over pages rather the mystery part covers most of the story which will definitely keep you hooked in.

I received this book from the author through Firstreads and I'm glad I did! I was hooked on the characters from the beginning. This story holds your interest from beginning to end with the story line. It's about a cop investigating a string of murders and her prime suspect is the a man she falls in love with, who also has to eat souls to survive. Will he lose her when she finds out? Does she arrest him for them? Is he the only one like this? You'll have to read the book to find out! I hope that ...more

3.5 rating rounded up to a four...
This is a debut novel for this author and for the most part I thought it was very creative, original and engaging. Definitely a great read for the small .99 price tag! The only reason for the slightly lower rating than what I would have liked to have given was because the writing was at times confusing. Especially with names... David was also Jason and switching back and forth between the names throughout the book had me a little lost on several occasions. I wa

I received this book in exchange for an honest review via Lovers of Paranormal Group.

Let me start by saying that I was transported back to my first love, Crime Drama Detective novels. I found my love of reading books like that when I stumbled upon Neon Mirage by Max Allan Collins when I was fourteen. It was a huge change from my regular Shakespeare obsession at that age. Literature had always been a favorite subject and discovering more than Shakespeare, Poe, Bronte, Austen, Twain, Judy Blume an

I really would have rated this 5 stars if this was solely based on the storyline itself but gotta throw in all aspects of this book and that's where it starts to get tricky with the whole star rating......

First thing that had me taking away a star is at points the book didn't read right. Phrasing of sentences got confusing. Explanations of what was going on made no sense and well the characters never really revealed why they had certain feelings (And their was some at times random feelings being

What could be better than a Paranormal Who Dun It?
I loved Soulless, I thought it was an excellent read and with a different spin in the paranormal world, where they survive from taking energy by touch, it makes it much more interesting. I love reading a book that keeps me guessing, even when I have to put it down for a few minutes. Detective Martinez is an amazing character, a strong and honorable woman who seeks justice for tho

Truthfully I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I picked up this novel. It sounded like an interesting concept and Toni Hofman absolutely lived up to the intrigue.
From the moment I picked up this novel I was drawn in. I thought the idea of the story was an original and creative one and I found the characters to be relatable; the one thing I loved was that the man female character, Detective Alex Martinez was a strong woman with a backbone.

*I received a free copy of this book for review*

This is a nice hybrid of thriller mystery crossed with paranormal. Cop Alex is an engaging and sympathetic heroine who is on the tail of a brutal serial killer. She initially suspects David Jason Sawyer, a mysterious man who is much more than he seems, but her reason for being drawn to him turns out to be one entwined in a past of entanglements with a dangerous secret sect.

This book is superbly well-written and flows smoothly. The villains are nas

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review as part of the Gotta Have Romance with a Kick group.

This book presented a different spin of paranormal for me. Alex is a homicide detective investigating several interesting murders. David/Jason is one of her suspects. There's something about him that intrigues her and also causes her to want to take a closer look and keep an eye on him. At the same time she has an unexplained attraction to him.

Dear fellow Reviewers here is my Review for Soulless.

I got this book free for doing a honest review on my side (LOP)

I started this book yesterday and finished it the next day that was how good it is. I found the book to be very interesting and enjoyed the whole concept of evolved human species that feeds of souls. I loved the characters especially Jason/David as he showed to be the only one of them with a conscious. The book drew me with the whole story plot. My favorite part of the book was wi

I was given this book in exchange for my honest review (LoP)
Am I dreaming or is this real was the question of the day! As the story unfolded Alex's life was turn up side down by the man she loved with all her heart, wait not him, his family wanted her dead! What dark secret did David/Jason have that will destroy her forever? If that is his real name? There is love, romance, mystery and a strong female character that don't cry for help every time she is in trouble . But wait I have tell you this,

Soulless is a gripping novel. I couldn't put it down and finished it in one day. I loved how the beginning you hade no idea as to what creatures Jason and his family were. I usually skim read but while reading this book I didn't skim a single page. I'd recommend this book to anybody who is tired of vampire stories and wants to read about a concept that is different and refreshing. ...more
