it was amazing

Reviewed By K.C. Finn for Readers’ Favorite

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. The novel explores the world of the Soul Collector, the queen of a dark kingdom somewhere between the living and the dead. The Soul Collector’s world is another dimension that souls slip into when their bodies are comatose and kept alive only through machines. Filled with strange beings making deals with lost souls, those who end up there struggle to determine whether they’re in a mere dream, or if they really are bartering with their souls for a chance at a better life.

Author Laura Daleo has crafted a fascinating work that explores the mystery of what bodies, minds, and souls might do during the experience of living through a coma. With this supernatural concept of an in-between realm in place, Daleo employs some fantastic atmospheric descriptions to create this new world and populates it with many fascinating yet terrifying concepts and creatures that we are compelled to explore. One of the things I most enjoyed about it was that the protagonists were not necessarily heroes, but characters with their own flaws and difficulties that challenge them whilst navigating this new and dangerous realm. The plot revolves around an initially slow-burning dynamic which soon builds to a highly satisfying and thought-provoking conclusion. Overall, I would certainly recommend The Soul Collector to mature young adult and adult readers seeking a truly unique paranormal adventure.
