Soul Ties by Lisa Swallow: A review

Ava is a soul-hunter. She collects souls from unassuming demons to be re-purposed for a war between demons and the Caelestia. While on a mission to Earth to collect a demon soul, she realises there’s more to the war than she’s been led to believe, and sets out on a mission with the demon she was sent after to set the souls free. While falling in love with Kier things get complicated when she’s given an ultimatum: get his soul, or be sent to hell.


I loved this book. I’m usually hesitant to read books when they are heavily supernatural, but in this case I’m glad I read it. It reminded me of Abbi Glines’ Existence series, although the stories were very very different, it had the same kind of pace and a similar level of paranormal which I liked.

Lisa’s writing style is very real (as I’ve mentioned before) and that’s why I love to read her books. She makes the emotions and the thoughts more realistic to what I imagine I would think/feel in the same situations. This is a very good book to read if you’re looking for a change in genre but not wanting to get thrown in the deep end.

This story is one I would have liked more of, because I felt like the end was a little abrupt. But despite this, I really did enjoy reading Soul ties, and I would highly recommend any of Lisa’s books if you’re looking for something different or something a little more real.

Overall score: 9/10 (Very good story, a little more at the end would have been nice)

What others are saying about this book:

Rebecca on Goodreads:  It’s the kind of book you can’t stop reading once you start. 5/5

Danielle on Goodreads: I really can’t fault this book, once you get used to the whiplash from all the twists and turns! 5/5

Serena on Goodreads:  Every time the book seemed to lead a certain way and I felt like I had worked out what was going to happen next, it took a completely different turn and surprised me. 5/5

I’ve also reviewed 3 other books by Lisa. Summer Sky, Falling Sky and Because of Lucy.
