Book Review Wayward Soul by Kim Bowman

I had the pleasure of Receiving Wayward Soul by Kim Bowman for review and I must say, I really enjoyed the unique storyline that Kim has put forward. The aspects of the storyline very intriguing and captivating. Something different out their, then what is currently being shelved, this aspect of the  storyline I enjoyed ! The cover caught my eye !! Being a cover love Kinda girl !! this was for me ! I know dont just a book by its cover but not often am I wrong !! This will not dissapoint !


When Zanna Seoul accidentally causes the death of a fellow spirit guide’s charge while trying to save the life of the man she loves, she is stripped of her position and banished to Earth to die. In the spirit world, one doesn’t mess with what’s written. With Zanna no longer guiding him and his memory of her erased, Owen Nash is left wide open as the target of the vengeful spirit guide who feels he’s been wronged. A guide who also happens to be a werewolf. Once on Earth, Zanna refuses to stand by and watch Owen die, so she intervenes again, setting off a chain of events that could mean death for all of them if she doesn’t go back and undo the mess she’s made. Can Zanna succeed before the werewolf does..

My Review:
Zanna Seoul is a spirit guide,2000 years old now living her life with Owen, her charge, whom she has fallen madly in love with. Zanna knows this alone is forbidden to show her true self to Owen , but loves strength  cannot be determined by some.  Owen's life is mapped out and he is destined to die. Zanna does not  want to believe his life charts have come to an end and she interferes causing havoc amongst, other spirit guides and their charges and  Zanna is sentenced to die.

 Jakeb, a vengeful spirit guide - lycan - has other plans, he lost his charge and now wants Zanna to suffer his wraith.He will destroy whatever in his path to make her suffer. Including killing everyone in his path to change destiny.

 Owen is thrown into a world of spirit guides, people with psychic powers, werewolves and other beings he ever thought existed. The higher powers must step in to intervene but who will survive the Lycans wraith, will destiny takes it path or continue on its whirlwind of destruction?

Wow, this book is only 57 pages long, and contains so much detail and storyline it leaves you full to the brim when you have finished reading. One would think this is just the beginning but Kim entwines everything in one sitting.

A story filled with higher powers,their bosses, their charges and  spirit guides, and paranormal beings that Kim has created - a world of her own. This story alone was refreshing something new that is what is currently out their and shelved. The chapters flowed smoothly, keeping the reader intrigued from beginning to end.The physical descriptions I felt myself gasping - this alone took my breath away.  I like to get involved in a story and this alone, keeps me on the edge of my seat. ** I tend to be a dramatic reader * :P

 Thrills to leave you gasping, mystery to keep you intrigued and a forbidden love , a  path that may only  to lead to destruction?

I would like to have seen more character descriptions and surroundings, but in only 57 pages one can only include so much ;) I didnt feel anything was missing,in the storyline.  Im just big on descriptions and I like to invisage whilst I read. It takes me to that place, in the storyline.

The storyline was fluent, all blending in well, characters main and secondary all wonderfully created. Owen and Zanna, share a love that seems to defy all odds , longing for each other, desire, memories keep them from parting. Zanna may have once been immortal, but she shows some kick arse , heroic attitude to save the one she loves, she is bruised and beaten but still soldiers on, determined to protect the ones she loves till her last dying breath. I enjoy a female character that takes lead and shows initiative.

 Owen, and Zanna are two parts of a whole, both strong willed characters willing to give up their lives for what they believe in and who they love. The ending not at all what you would think, but overall story was round up nicely giving it that happily ever after ending.
Overall storyline, love will always find a way.

My thought for the day after reading Wayward Soul !
** When you hear whispers - keep in mind mabye its your spirit guide , showing you your way ** !!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this short read, and would recommend to all..
