I wish the story was as comprehensible as the blurb. The writing is...
part one



He was too short to be the airplane he’d seen on TV that morning.

Wind smoothed his hair back, whipped against his clothes and

tamed the grass. Tall green-brown fibers scratched at his shoul-

ders, distancing him from the city, hiding him from the roads and

highways. No one would notice him here behind the forest. When

he tilted upward onto his toes, the wind broke into his ears, eyes,

nostrils. New nois
3.5 hearts

The Soul was different (so different), gruesome, graphic, disturbing, but so intriguing.

Dark and descriptive, intricate and haunting. I don't say this lightly, but The Soul by S.R. Carrillo is unlike anything I've ever read before. From the very first chapter, this book had me thinking, "Oh, what I have I gotten myself into?" I knew I was in for a new, thrilling, and shocking experience, and The Soul did not disappoint.

This book is horrific and beautiful and mysterious and straightforward. S.R. Carrillo has created a world that I never could have imagined, and that's something tha

S.R. Carillo has an intoxicating richness to her writing. She has the way of taking the characters and their surroundings and punching them with descriptions to fulfill any imagination.

A wonderful author with a brilliant future!

I’d been tempted to buy this book after reading hints about it on S.R.Carrillo’s blog. The story sounded unique and something different to what I’ve read lately. It was also the first m/m book I’ve read.

So, what can I say about The Soul?

How about it was brilliant!

The writing in this book captured me from the first page, I was blown away by the descriptions which had me squeamish at some points they were written so well (blood doesn’t normally affect me in books)!

The entire book was written in s
Lisa The Novel Approach
S.R. Carrillo’s The Soul is a definite break from what I’m used to seeing in angel/demon fiction. The book’s blurb lays out in clear terms what the plot is, and the novel doesn’t disappoint with regard to how events unfold.

If you’re easily squicked, let me warn you now that it’s not an easy read. Carrillo holds nothing back in her descriptions of violence and gore, but at the same time, nothing’s done gratuitously. Since we’re looking at unfettered evil running amok, we have to see just what it

This novel is certainly the most unique I’ve read. Admittedly, it’s a genre I do not delve much into, but for all I’ve read or watched thus far I can safely say this is an absolutely original and creative work of fiction.

The writing is so well crafted, so exquisite, it’s almost poetical. There’s an aura of mystery, of ancient and at the same time futuristic knowledge here that is impressive. The world building is subtle and yet so effective—the reader’s intelligence is respected and for that onl

I just... no... dear goodness no... Review maybe to come if I really feel like writing one on how I feel. I just... this was not good.
