After 25 long months, Soul Intent, the sequel to Soul Identity, is now available world-wide! Here’s the description: I hope it makes you want to rush out and buy it
A VILLAIN’S REQUEST
In 1946, soon-to-be-executed Nazi General Hermann Goering asks young Soul Identity overseer Archibald Morgan to take his looted gold and deposit it in a soul line collection, there to await his soul’s rebirth.
A GRIM RESISTANCE
Flora, a seventeen-year-old Gypsy girl whose father died in the Dachau concentration camp, is sure that Goering stole the gold. She struggles to persuade Morgan to reject the Nazi’s deposit, but Morgan prevails.
A MYSTERIOUS THEFT
Sixty-four years have passed. A repentant Morgan opens Goering’s collection and discovers the gold is gone. In its place lies a cryptic journal. Morgan asks security expert Scott Waverly to find the thief and recover the gold.
A THRILLING ADVENTURE
Scott must race through Europe to uncover the elusive secrets of what really happened in Nuremberg… secrets that threaten to reopen old wounds, settle old scores, and lead to the gold’s—and his own soul’s—recovery.
Although its launch is today, Soul Intent has been available for three weeks on amazon.com. In that time, I’ve sold 700 copies, and I’ve gotten some great reviews. I want to share one particular 5-star review with you, from evpseeker in Virginia, who discovered Soul Identity and Soul Intent on kindleboards.com.
This is the first book review I’ve ever written outside of book reports for school many years ago. So, this review isn’t going to be filled with a lot of fluff, terminology or $25 words. This will be a straightforward review written by your average book lover. So here goes.After reading “Soul Identity” I had high hopes for “Soul Intent.” I am happy to say I was not disappointed one bit. The book was well written, captivating, humorous, thought provoking and emotional. The author does an awesome job of giving you just enough facts and history about WWII to place you there but not bog you down with details that detract from the story. You’ll find that you seamlessly travel between the past and the present without confusion. Thoughts of “what happens next?” will keep you turning the pages.
The characters are so well developed you will start to feel as if they are people you know and can relate to in real life. Flora is a fireball. She will have you laughing at her sharp tongue one minute then crying for her the next. Her triumphs are great, her sacrifices are greater.Archie is a driven man with a vision. He’s very by the book and uptight. There will be times you’ll want to reach into the pages and smack him then the next thing you know you’ll want to hug him. He is a very complex character that tries to hold it together at all times.Let me ask you a few questions.
What would you do if you had to push aside every sense of right and wrong to follow a set of rules you were bound by? If you didn’t follow those rules the price could be your life. How strong are your morals and ethics? Are you willing to die for what you believe is right? Could you deceive the person you love for 60 plus years and still look them in the eye every day? Would you help an evil Nazi that killed some of your family to carry on his Soul Line?
Have you ever had “opal fever?” You might after reading this book. Do you know how to kill a vampire so that it will stay dead? Yeah, you will after reading this book.
Most of all I ask you….. What would you leave in your Soul Line Collection? It’s the biggest question I’ve asked myself at the end of both “Soul Identity” and “Soul Intent.” As of right now I still do not have an answer for that question. One of these days I just know I’ll come up with something so awesome that others will have Soul Line Collection envy. LOL
Bottom line, this is a GREAT book and Dennis Batchelder has gained a reader for life with me. I would give this book 10 stars if Amazon had it as an option. There’s a little something for everyone in this book.
So, thank you for reading my review. Now click on out of here and buy both “Soul Identity” and “Soul Intent.” With the very low price point of both you have no excuse not to, unless…… you are afraid to do a little “soul searching.”
You can buy your very own copy of Soul Intent on amazon.com in paperback and kindle. It’s in many other online bookstores too. And if you use a different ereader than Amazon’s Kindle, the smashwords.com edition is here.
