Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: A Soul Reclaimed by Shayna Grissom @ShaynaGrissom @XpressoTours

A Soul Reclaimed
Shayna Grissom
Publication date: April 1st 2019
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Hell is divided into seven regions. The first region is designated for the purest of souls, the seventh is for the evilest. There was once a king of Hell, but the steward family has ruled for centuries.

Nora, the stepdaughter of the steward is undone when her mother and step-father take away her beloved tutor, Peter. When Nora confronts the steward and her mother, the discussion is heated and ends with the steward in inexplicable pain.

Shortly after, Nora finds herself in the Starry Wood. Peter told her of the perils within the forest, and it’s not long before the inhabitants of the wood find her.

A giant hunter named Aegis comes to Nora’s aid. He is drawn to Nora, compelled to protect her from the steward’s assassins, the giants, and the evil souls who escape the seventh region.

Together, they travel the seven layers of Hell to discover why the steward is so threatened by a teenage girl.

My Review:

Nora is upset when her mother and step-father take her tutor Peter away from her and runs away. She soon finds herself in the Starry Wood where dangers are all around. She meets up with a guy Aegis who looks out for her and keeps her safe from the hunters that her step-father sends after her.

Nora and Aegis are on their way to the castle and have to go through the layers of hell encountering all kinds of evil along the way while trying to stay hidden from her step-father’s assassins. Hell is divided into seven regions with the different souls ranging from good to bad with each level.

Nora wants to confront her step-father but must wait until her powers become stronger. Nora has just come into her powers and doesn’t know exactly how to use them correctly or what her powers consist of as of yet but she is learning more and more each day.

It is a long and rough journey for Nora and Aegis through the layers of hell with meeting some very evil souls but meeting some nice ones as well. It gets so bad that at times Aegis carries Nora, awe sweet.

Nora and Aegis are great characters with big hearts and would not hurt a soul unless that soul crosses the line between good and evil, once that line is crossed then it is on and someone is going to pay for what they have done. Nora is not afraid to do what is right no matter what that may be.

A Soul Reclaimed is a very intriguing story that will keep you entertained from beginning to end and will keep you flipping the pages wanting to know what Nora and Aegis are going to get into next.

I would recommend A Soul Reclaimed to all fans of fantasy and young adult.
