My soul adrift, my body earthbound

Will it keep me safe till morning's light?

It begins with darkness. Are they dead, or trapped inside a horrible dream? No one can hear them, see them. Has the world forgotten them? Are they invisible? Not to the Soul Collector. They have stepped into her Kingdom, and

What happens when a soul is caught between the living and the dead, when a person is comatose and the only things keeping them alive are machines? Several people will find themselves in another dimension, promises made by otherworldly beings, deals forged, but are they dreaming while in a coma or have their souls been bartered for what they thought was another chance at life? Have they been fooled by the devil or have they found something better?

Laura Daleo’s THE SOUL COLLECTOR is both a huge “

So first let's get the review out of the way and then I'll share the backstory. When The Soul Collector starts, the reader is thrown smack-dab into the middle of a boxing match. However, it quickly turns South when Bayfield is knocked unconscious and taken to a local hospital when he gets emergency surgery. There's only one little hitch - he doesn't understand why he is outside his body and watching all that is happening. Bayfield soon learns that his soul has left his body when he is approached ...more

The Soul Collector is a work of fiction in the paranormal genre that is aimed at young adult audiences and was written by author Laura Daleo.

I rated The Soul Collector 3 out of 5 stars.

The premise of the book was an excellent idea. Drara is a soul collector, who wishes to be human, and Ashley and Johnathan are one of the many souls she is collecting with the helps of Jekins. Drara offers the souls, more or less, a life they never had under a few conditions. Ashley and Johnathan easily allow their souls to be collected but soon begin to question their decisions, upon meeting Sara, a little old lady whose soul was collected years befo

I found this to be an original and captivating story. I wish there was a pre-quel or another book that delves into Drara's story more. In this book she feels like a side character but she deserves to be a lead. I look forward to more by this author

This book was really good. From the start it had me hooked. The storyline and characters are well written and interesting. A hard book to put down. I would recommend reading.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The Soul Collector is much different from any other book I think I’ve read. It deals with the afterlife and the place in between life and afterlife in a way I’ve not seen before. The majority of the characters are trapped in comas and given the opportunity to “live” out their lives in a secluded mansion owned by The Soul Collector.

I really like the ideas put forth in this book. The idea that those in a coma can be doing something other than just what it appears is a cool idea. To think our love

have you ever wonder what happens while someone is in coma, or fighting for their lives while they're connected to a machine to keep them alive? can they listen? does their soul is trapped or wandering between dimensions?
is everything a dream.. or worst, a nightmare! Does second chances are for real?
Who holds the key.. Who's the soul collector? Does he really exist. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review,

The plot flowed nicely and the action kept me guessing and flipping pages. What a clever story.

Laura Daleo has created a novel in which the main character shows growth. For me that is always something I look for in my favorite main characters. I liked flawed characters and if they can overcome things, it really speaks to me.

This was a quick read for me. I felt like the words and plot just flowed long effortlessly. I found myself flipping page after page and guessing the whole time.

I absolutely loved the writing style of Laura Daleo, you get a hint of it in the synopsis, but it really is beautifully written. Weird to say about a book that has a cover like this one, but that really is my description for her writing ability.
I loved the way this story unfolded. We got bits and pieces and just enough action to keep us actively engaged and flipping pages. Such a imaginative piece of writing.
