The Soul Destroyer by Elicia Hyder

Book 7 of The Summoner series. Best to read this series in order.
It starts out so emotional. I was crying on the bus on the way to work. ‘Appy’. The word for father in the language of the angels.
Told from Warren’s point of view. Warren has given up his life to protect his daughter and he is now the Archangel of Death. It’s up to him to identify the Morning Star (Satan) so his daughter isn’t prevented from growing up.

Lots of angels with strange names. Subterfug

This book is so good, best to date its action packed, heart wrenching, laughter inducing, journey. This is not a story this is an experience and such a satisfying one. This is a well-crafted, well thought out piece of literature it’s so much more than just a story.
There is a lot going on this book, so you need to pay attention, but Elicia makes that so easy she is such a good yarn spinner. Her books just keep getting better and better, growing in deliciousness, suspense and the humour had me la
Unless the Archangel of Death, Warren Parish, can find the Morning Star (a.k.a Satan) immediately, his daughter, Iliana must be brought to Eden to be made a seraph—an angel frozen as a child.
This book is Warren centric and told in Warren’s POV. Don’t expect to see much of Sloan Jordan in this book, although she does make an appearance. The rest of the cast of characters are there and we meet a few new angels including Cassiel. She accompanies Warren in his search on earth for the Morning Star.

Another great installment!

I didn’t realize how much I missed this world! Warren is back to protect his daughter and hopefully prevent a war. I laughed, I cried, I laughed, and cried all through this book. Looking forward to what’s in store for Sloan, Nathan, Warren, and Iliana!

What an awesome book! I love this series so much. All the characters are great and all the new Angels we met in this book. This series just keeps getting better. I could see this series as a TV show or a movie series like Twilight, a huge hit if brought to the big screen to TV with all the love that goes into to writing these books! I can't wait to read the next one! ...more

Elicia Hyder’s Soul Summoner series continues with book #7, The Soul Destroyer.
Warren has succeeded his father, Azrael, as Archangel of Death, but his unique approach to the job, coloured by his former human life on Earth, is ruffling a few feathers. Add to that a series of particularly gruesome murders in Venice, where his personal sigil is carved into the bodies, plus the angelic council’s order that he must bring his beloved daughter, Iliana, to Eden to become a seraph—a child who will never

Back at it again

Just like that, I’m sucked back in. Another great story told from Warrens point of view. This is definitely a set up for more to come. This review contains slight spoilers. I got emotional whenever warren thought about Sloan. I’ve always rooted for them and I was heartbroken when he sacrificed himself however noble it was. I love that he still thinks about her and wishes he could see her because realistically, to lose someone you love even though they are RIGHT THERE is tough. I

This whole series is entertaining, lots of action, funny- I mean come on! the Archangel getting up off a leather couch and it sounds like he farts every time, it's hilarious. If you need a quick read, I suggest this series.

If you've read books 1-6 in the Soul Summoner series then you knew that this book was going to be smart, well written, and an emotional roller-coaster. If you haven't read the previous books then you really should, as they're smart, well written, and take you on an emotional roller-coaster of a journey.
The Soul Destroyer was everything I've come to expect from an Elicia Hyder novel. Written from the perspective of Warren, we get to follow him as he performs the duties of an Archangel. Along the

This is The Soul Destroyer, book 7 of the Soul Summoner series written by Elicia Hyder. OMG!! I though this would be the last book and I kept worrying that there weren’t enough pages to tie up all of the loose ends....well Ms Hyder is making us continue on this wild ride and I’m loving every minute of it! I’ll be Team Warren forever too!! Don’t miss a second and don’t blink an eye or you may miss a very important detail in this all consuming series!

Put one more 5-star novel in author Elicia Hyder's belt for The Soul Destroyer, the seventh book in The Soul Summoner series. For me, Sloan, Warren (the main protagonist in this book), Nathan, Azrael and others have become like an extended family I love, admire, and worry about. I look forward to every new installment to see what's happening next, and Hyder never disappoints.

If you have not read the earlier books in this series, I strongly suggest you do, and read them in order, as the story arc

If I weren't on a book budget hold because of the holidays, I'd have all of these books in my possession. I'll be getting you soon!

I had a real heartthrob for Sloan, Warren, and Nathan and when The Regular Guy came out, it was a tough hill to climb. But this? Oh, so much worse. On top of Warren needing to heal and accept that Nathan and Sloan are together now (that is SO not how I took the last installment because I totally ch

The Best Yet!

I just love this series! Superb story telling! This latest story is Warren’s “life” as the Arch Angel of Death. There are so many intricate details that make this story come alive and capture the reader from the very beginning and not letting go until the very end. The imagery is fantastic, and all the subtle nuances keep you hungry for the next page and wondering if this is really what heaven is all about.

Warren’s responsibilities are enormous and his self-inflicted absence from Sl

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of "THE SOUL DESTROYER" The best book in this phenominal series thus far so much happens in this story your totally glued to your seat.
Warren Parish must find the Morning Star or the Council in Eden will send guarding angels to retrieve Iliana his daughter and bring her to Eden where she will be frozen as a Seraph never to grow up and lose her powers she'll be with her dad but he doesn't want that for her.
Warren heads back to Earth and is accompanied by Cassiel one
My favorite book boyfriend returns in his own narrated novel, and this time Warren Parish has far bigger issues than vying for a woman’s affection. His almost year-old daughter is under threat from not only the demons who want to use her but Heaven’s Principality Council who demand she live in Eden where she’ll never grow up. As the Archangel of Death, Warren has a duty to turn over his infant, but as a father who had risked everything to keep her on Earth, he’s not about to surrender until he e ...more

In the seventh book of the series, Warren is on a mission to save his daughter! He will have to deal with old enemies of his father’s, the Council of Angels and God, and demons to save her and the future of the world. He will make a new connection that some will love and others will hate! This is just another war of epic proportions that heralds the finding of the Morning Star! The Council demands things of the Angels of Death that are horrendous and Warren will do everything in his power along ...more

Like a Trip to Heaven...  a fantastic addition to an amazing series!

I loved everything about this book.  If I disliked anything, it was that it had to end!  Actually, there was one thing I disliked and that was that I didn’t get enough of some of my favorite characters, but the book’s ending left me with the feeling that they were going to be a major part of the storyline moving forward.

This book switched narrators and we find ourselves inside the head of Warren.  It was quite the ride, ranging

OMG ~ I love everything I have read by Elicia Hyder and this is no exception. There was so much I liked about this book, but even more that I LOVED ab out this book. This edition was so much of Warren ~ and told from his point of view ~ and it was so great. We got a some back story on him. We got to see some different relationships he has, and has had. Old characters were brought back and we got to know them a little bit. And his powers! We definitely got to

Elicia Hyder at her finest!

How would I describe this latest instalment of The Soul Summoner series? Nail-bitingly intense. Heart-wrenching and heart-warming at the same time. Just when I thought it wasn’t possible to do so, Elicia has taken the story to new heights. It was fantastically written with the promise of more and better things to come in the next one. I eagerly look forward to reading Book 8.

For those who haven’t started on this series yet, I urge you to start straight away from Book 1

With Iliana's future at stake Warren has returned and is telling this story in his own voice. But it's not just his daughter's future that is at stake. Their family is growing and the unborn are now at risk too as the edict from Heaven is that they must find the Morning Star and it may require the ellimination of any and all potention threats...babies under the age of two....even those yet to be born!!
The recent deaths of gifted humans has also drawn heavenly attention so Warren heads out to fi

This is Warren’s story - where Warren goes and what he does after leaving Sloan and Iliana. It’s also after Sloan marries Nathan and so the story is interesting in that aspect. I always really like Warren and I did like hearing his story. He is on a mission to find souls that have apparently returned from Nulterra to their past murdering and manipulating ways. They were banished to Nulterra and Warren must discover how they got to earth and what they want. He quickly learns that his daughter is ...more

Get ready for the ride of your life!

This is the best book in the series so far! Everytime I think Hyder can't top her latest story, she goes and does it! I loved this book. Her ability to mingle humor with seriousness, showcase characters rather than leave them flat, and the worlds she creates are mind boggling. I absolutely HATED to put this book down. I was literally checking the percentage of the book read bc I didn't want to finish it! I was trying to drag it out. Alas, I finished it and am

Love this series and Elicia Hyder!

I love Warren, but no matter the fact that Sloan is happy with Nathan and they are raising Iliana, I still can’t like him with anybody but Sloan. Honestly I wish he and Nathan would just share her! But seriously, this book was great. The angels tried to put Iliana in danger and some serial killers from the past were set free on the world again. Warren does what he does best, protecting his family and making the world a safer place. I really don’t like the counci

My favorite one yet!

This story keeps getting better and better! Even with sorrow of certain events, Elicia finds a way to redeem her characters tragedies. Lots more Angel action in this book. It was curious to read what Elicia’s idea of heaven is like. I kept thinking that my idea is slightly different but then again it’s a story so never mind. Through Warrens point of view we witness so many developments. I cried happy tears towards the end a lot and it sets up the next book perfectly!
