Loved Soulwood Book 3

I love this series, love interests more on the forefront in this novel. There are 2. Nell's family is pulling a setup for her with a man from the church. Her kitty cat (Oakum) gets a little jealous

Nell gets engrossed with a case involving a Senators family who is more than they seem. Fire-starters are involved.

Book is good, audio makes it better.

Khristine Hvam knocks Nell out of the park again. After reading the book, I started on the Audible version -- to "hear" the characters. I grew up in the vicinity of where Faith Hunter set Soulwood and listening reminds me of home.

I can't imagine a Nell or Jane Yellowrock book without Khristine Hvam. Just as I can't imagine not reading a book from Faith Hunter.

Soft and Fluffy :-)

Not a review. Just my thoughts.

First off Kristine Hvam is EXCELLENT. She is my #1 Narrator. Ok now to this book.

For some reason I find it hard to write reviews of the Soulwood series. It's not bad. I pre-ordered this audible book and saved it for the weekend so I could listen in peace. It was slow paced but I was still entertained for the most part. The "investigation" I found boring. I was more interested in the magic of Soulwood and interactions with the church.... And I try hard not to compare it to Jane Yellowrock, but it always happens. I know that Faith Hunter is trying to keep the characters separate and different in their demeanor. I do understand that Nell is a softer more girly girl type character.

With that being said... this story wasn't bad per say. But it was slow and I felt like I was being forced to feel things that hadn't been earned by these characters. I also notice that I can't visualize these characters well. And one of them I always forget about until she says something... can't even remember their name now. The two who are secretly dating but everyone already knows about it... can't even remember their names and I just finished the book. I have no idea what they look like or care about them in any way.

This is a the complete opposite with Jane Yellowrock characters... I can picture Leo, The brothers, and especially Bruiser ( I love me some Bruiser). I just don't have a solid picture of any of these people but Rick and he of course came from the Yellowrock series.

Again, I didn't dislike Flame in the Dark. It was a nice calming listen while I folded clothes and cleaned out my closet. But after reading it I am itching for Jane.

Love this Series, Just Love It

I love Nell and I love love Occum.
Nell has grown and changed a lot, which is totally enjoyable, and I love how she is taking Mindy in because Mindy is funny and sassy just like Nell.

I like that Soul had a larger part in this story, and I like Tandy and JoJo. Hope T-Lane continues to have a large part too.
Rick is Rick, the jury is still out as to whether I like him or not.
I so hope the next book comes soon. Hint, Hint Faith Hunter

Khristine Hvam IS awesome. She does such a great job.

The story is action packed and continues the story well. I hate the cliffhanger because I am dying for Nell to be happy in a romantic relationship. I can’t wait for the next book
