The spirits of the dead are like drowning people. They have no intent to do harm, but once they notice people like Fia, they latch on and in their panic and desperation, drag them under. Fia is a young woman in deep trouble, but the world thinks she owns the deluxe edition of crazy. To have any chance at a normal life, she needs a new start. Convinced that the woods are empty and safe, she signs on as a wilderness search and rescue volunteer. Bad assumption. Big mistake.
When Fia witnesses a psychopomp leading a dead boy through a portal to the afterlife, she is frantic to learn the secret of how to free herself from the dead. Can she overcome her necrophobia and serve the Guardian of the Dead?
Soul Search is a smart thriller that hooks you from the beginning and doesn't let go. The main character is a rare blend of relatable and other-worldly who can appeal to a wide audience. I really appreciate a story that can lead you to a new perspective and Soul Search, fitting to the title, does just that. I actually started to slow my pace as the story went on because I didn't want it to end. I have to know what happens next!! Five stars *****
