My Review


"Soul Masters: The Hunting Grounds" by K.R. Gastreich takes readers on a thrilling journey through the mystical and dangerous realms of immortals and souls. As a resident of Kansas City, Missouri, I found myself intrigued to explore this paranormal adventure, particularly because of the author's ties to my hometown and our shared experience of attending the same writer group meetings in Kansas City. While I've never met the author personally, we've probably crossed paths.

The story introduces us to the captivating characters of Mayela and Nathan, two individuals caught amid a supernatural conflict. Gastreich skillfully crafts these characters, providing them with depth and believability. The immediate immersion into the paranormal elements within the first chapter adds an exciting and mysterious touch to the narrative.

One strength of the novel lies in the author's ability to create a three-dimensional world filled with devils, angels, and forbidden love. Mayela and Nathan's relationship is a central focus, and their interactions are both passionate and complex. The unfolding of their connection keeps readers engaged, and the paranormal elements add a layer of excitement to the plot.

While the novel's pacing is well-executed, there are moments when the story encounters an information dump, particularly in the interaction between Mayela and her mother in Chapter 3. This revelation of key details felt somewhat excessive and left me wishing for a more gradual unveiling of the story's mysteries. I also found myself yearning for Mayela's mother to maintain an air of elusiveness, which would have enhanced the overall intrigue.

I appreciated the vivid descriptions of the otherworldly scenes. However, as a native of the Kansas and Missouri setting, I wished for more detailed depictions of the local setting, as those unfamiliar with the region might need more setting descriptions.

Once past the initial chapters, the novel gains momentum, delivering an interesting mix of action and paranormal intrigue. Gastreich's talent for describing the otherworld is commendable, and the story unfolds with a sense of urgency that keeps readers on the edge of their seats.

In conclusion, "Soul Masters: The Hunting Grounds" is a great read for fans of paranormal romance and those intrigued by the clash between good, evil, and the moral grey. K.R. Gastreich successfully weaves a tale of forbidden love against a backdrop of supernatural elements, making it a highly recommended addition to the genre.
