Review: EYE OF THE SOUL by Terri Rochenshi


Eye of the Soul (Pool of Souls)


Escape.

That should be Hyla’s first thought as her people are chained and imprisoned for no imaginable reason.

Instead, Hyla finds herself traveling through a land void of Natives, with human soldiers pillaging in desperate pursuit of her, and in search of the mystical Pool of Souls—home to the one man who can save her people.

Or so she believes.

Led by her faith in the deity Fadir, Hyla is met along her journey by Jadon—a human male and fierce King’s warrior, and his childhood best friend Conlin—one of the few Natives aware of his Fadir-given Talents.

Protected by Jadon, guided by Conlin, and with an unfailing belief in the purpose of her pilgrimage, Hyla carries on.

Like her, though, another searches for the Pool, and should he gain access first, everyone she loves, and everything she knows, could be lost.

Forever.

My Review:
Know those books that you just keep on thinking about long after you finish them?  The ones you had become so engrossed in, you ponder what will happen with the characters much like you would wonder how a troubled friend is doing?  Yup, EYE OF THE SOUL is so one of those books.

What an incredible world Terri Rochenshi builds in EYE OF THE SOUL!  She balances guiding her reader through discovering this world, introducing amazing characters and thrilling with griping action perfectly right from the start.  While you are immediately thrown into the action of the plot, you never feel lost or confused.  Oh yes, there's plenty of mystery or veiled motives, but you never think "huh?" as you go along; "gasp!" yes, but not "huh?"

I really enjoyed the story of EYE OF THE SOUL.  I was so engrossed by the plot and I fell in love with the characters.  Hyla is incredible!  Really, all the characters are amazing.  I'm super excited to read the next installment of the Pool of Souls!  EYE OF THE SOUL closes with a great cliff hanger and so much yet to be discovered.  Write faster, Terri, please!!!!
