Cate is in hell - as a soul stealer she was experimented on and forced to kill. And she’s riddled with guilt as she liked it. The one person who soothes her is Gage, doctor and scientist. He has his own actions to redeem for so understands Cate and doesn’t judge.

A story showing that the road to redemption is not easy and that forgiveness is hardest for one’s self. This story looks at this and the inner strength it takes to continue with the future despite the past.

Cate's had a rough couple of months. Kidnapped and forced to use her talent to kill people in really horrific ways, she's now on the mend. Sort of. She's fighting off her need to kill. She's in a bad place, but she's getting better. She's in the "I don't deserve to live after what I've done" headspace and she doesn't trust herself around Gage or anyone else.

Then things get worse. Because being forced to defend herself the only way she knows how takes her backwards a few steps. Good thing Gage is

Pretty good

I really like Gage. He is very smart. He carries a lot of guilt. Not all of it is on him though. Cats is struggling with her guilt. She is worried she will hurt an Innocent. It is really horrible to hear of the torture she endured. Gage gives Cate a reason to hope. A very good story. A really scary talent.

This is the first novel with a picture of a shirtless guy on the front cover that I've read, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The plot was simple but interesting with a surprising ending. I didn't care much for the male love interest and read this mainly because of the female main character. I took off one star because I felt like the first few pages gave the impression that the novel would be much darker than it actually was - and that disappointed me a little.

I love reading novellas & there’s no doubt that Anna Hackett excels at writing them.

Soul Stealer is the third and final installment of the Anomaly Trilogy. Although, I believe Soul Stealer can be read on its own & still make sense, I strongly recommend reading the others in the series (Time Thief & Mind Raider) because the reader is visited by previous characters and because the Anomaly Trilogy is just simply a fantastic series.

This third installment revolves around Gage and Cate. Be

Full Series Review w/Final Thoughts of all four books on

The suspense and the advancement of the plot was raised several notches in Soul Stealer.

This heroine was different from Bay and Mara in that her parents hadn’t kicked her to the curb, nor had she been fighting to stay one step ahead of Leven for years. The once genteel school teacher had been turned into a killer, and to her horror, she’d enjoyed the feeling. Thanks to the group at Haven, she was be

I am sure everyone out that has heard about woman being kidnapped and forced to do terrible thins, but take a moment to and try to step into the shoes of those woman. Alone, away from everything you know and love and being forced to do the most unspeakable of things, and worse there is no way out!

In Soul Stealer by the incredibly talented Anna Hackett I got to see not only the world behind that kind of situation, I got to see the paranormal side of it. Yes, you read it right, the paranormal side

Cate Hartmann has been rescued from a crime lord who used her to kill people, but the act is addictive and she’s scared she might steal another’s soul. Doctor Gage Walker is determined to help her recover and join the rest of the world, but are his personal feelings getting in the way of his professional expertise? Both characters are carrying around a bunch of guilt they have to deal with, and the crime lord is still after Cate for nefarious reasons.

3.5 stars. So far in this series the main protagonists have been as much hunters as hunted, fighting back against the bad guys who want to kidnap Anomalies and use them for evil deeds. This one is a little different. Partly because it’s set on Haven, the paradise island where anomalies live in secret, but mostly because of Cate and Gage.

Cate was a nice teacher of young children until she was stolen away and forced to use her anomaly powers. All her life she’s resisted them because she’s a Soul S

Cate, a soul stealer, is in a detox programme at the Haven. Now she has been rescued from Leven she has to try to break the addiction he gave to her of stripping people of their souls.

Cate is a soul stealer, someone able to kill people through touch and will. Scary, right? Imagine how she feels when she realizes she 'enjoys' it, and knows she can no longer function as the decent person she used to be. She needs fixing. Can it be done? Gage is a doctor / scientist with his own secret history. He's attracted to Cate. Will he be able to heal Cate's emotional damage? They're meant for each other; he cannot give up!
These books could be read as satisfying 'stand-alones' but each st

Cate and Gage will steal your hearts. This is #3 in the Anomaly Series. You can read it as a standalone, but you will get a much better picture if you read the series in order.
These novellas are all about Action, Romance and Passion. With a touch of Paranormal thrown in.
I highly recommend this book as well as the series.

I was given a copy of this book by the author. I was not compensated in any way. Just an honest review. They're GREAT!
This was an enjoyable read that is different than my normal reads that have bloodsuckers. :)

I may give the author another chance by reading additional work. Hopefully, she has some full-length novels because I'm not normally a fan of short stories.

You should read the first two stories in the trilogy before reading this one.

Sometimes redemption is easy, dare I say, too easy? for characters. Soul Stealer shows the pain and the strength to recover and build your life. The paranormal elements add excitement and are fascinating, but the heart of the story is two hurting people reaching out for love, trusting in it.

This book was really good. Out of the 3 I have read, I think this one is the best. I wasn't expecting the ending, but it works. I can't wait until the next one..

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
