Thank you so much to author Kerry Wood for providing me with a copy of his book in exchange for this honest review.
Real question, do you believe in soulmates? That two people are destined for each other regardless of logic or circumstance? Please let me know in the comments below!
Personally, I do not. I know a lot of people like the idea of finding their perfect match. They like that hope. But I’m a pessimist so I see the odds of finding one person out of billions and just throw my hands up. I don’t play the lottery and I don’t search for soulmates.
But I think the idea of soulmates makes for interesting storytelling. The concept itself seems supernatural to me to begin with. That two souls are basically tethered together by some unseen force that we refer to as love. So it works perfectly for a novella with a supernatural twist.
Ken and Amy meet each other at a time and place where it feels like they are two of the only people left on earth. They hit it off and develop feelings for each other. They build a life and relationship together. They experience highs and lows and all of the regular aspects of a romantic relationship.
And then a revelation threatens to tear them apart. You have to read it to find out what it is, and you probably wont see it coming. I can’t even tell you what the supernatural element would be without it being a spoiler so just go with it. Trust me on this one.
Soulmate is short, only about 90 pages. But a lot gets packed into this short book. It also ends right where it should. My pessimist brain can take it to a dark farther conclusion but maybe your optimist believes in true love brain can bring it to a better place. I like the options. I like being able to create a story past the story.
There is no shortage of supernatural romance books on the market today. But this one is more grounded, more mature. Ken and Amy are not 18 anymore, this isn’t there first experience with love and emotions. They don’t get swept away in the same way that hormone driven teens do. And I appreciate that.
It’s always nice to see a new take on an old genre. I highly recommend Soulmate to anyone who’s looking for a supernatural romance they haven’t read a thousand times already.
