"Great romantic futuristic speculative fiction"
Sinya the space pirate worries about his younger brother,
Wes, whom he raised and kept safe when the lad's weird
skills made him an outcast. However, those skills have
become so excruciatingly painful, Wes has gone into a coma,
which Sinya assumes is self-induced, to escape his torment.
Desperate Sinya knows of the galaxies-wide reputation as a
healer of Beulah the witch.
Sinya and his crew land near Beulah's home. He carries the
unconscious Wes to her. She realizes the time has come for
her confrontation with evil and that Wes' problem is caused
by a lack of control over his abilities. Before she can
truly work her magic on the comatose empath, the evil
mystic Hortra captures Wes' soul on the mystic plane. Sinya
and Beulah must join forces if they are to save his sibling
and others in a fight that occurs as much in a mystical
realm where she is the warrior as on the mundane plane.
This reviewer is a big fan of Angela Verdenius, who
consistently writes some of the best romantic futuristic
works of speculative fiction on the market today (and for
the past few years). Her latest thriller is action- packed,
filled with heated romance and adventure in outer space and
especially on the mystical plane. The powerful cast grips
the audience, who feel Sinya's deep love for his sibling
and the healer while trying to hide how much he cares about
people especially his loyal crew. Beulah owns the tale as a
strong female who also loves deeply and also cares about
people. Together they make quite a team and story as they
oppose an incredibly evil enemy. As expected SOUL OF A
WITCH is a novel filled with heart and soul.
