Synopsis:  Since being discovered as
Soulless, Nadia has become a target for both terrorist groups and government
corporations. Now, her only hope for survival rests in the hands of the man
sent out to kill her: Diesel, the Mad Dog terrorist.

Diesel is determined to free himself of the never
ending curse of reincarnation and the haunting memories that plague his mind.
But when his search leads him to Nadia, a greater desire stills him from taking
her life.

Unable to see into Diesel’s cracking mind, Nadia
instead puts her faith into his strength, fueled by eleven generations of
unmatched rage and insanity. Their tight-rope relationship balances the two
between life and death, love and rage, trust and betrayal.
Tension pulls at the hems of their dangerous
companionship, and as time runs out all madmen must eventually make their
choice.

Review: Soulfinder by Jacinta Maree is a sequel
to a novel I’ve already read, which was why I was so eager to read it! I didn’t
remember as much of the first novel’s storyline as I wanted to by the time I
got around to read this, but when I started reading it gradually all came back
to me again. I also remembered the first novel being incredibly fast paced with
an insane plot and this crazily toxic back and forth romance… I wondered how
this novel would pan out after that one.
The beginning of the novel was really confusing to me.
The first book ended on a cliffhanger, and instead of having a bit of a recap
before getting back to the cliffhanger point, this one starts off right where
the cliffhanger ended. Because I couldn’t quite remember the characters, and what
was happening at that exact moment after the gap between me picking up these
books, for the first two chapters I was really confused. Confused about what
was happening and who each character was, but as I have already mentioned, in
time it all came drifting back and I was able to slide my way back into the
story.
Events in this novel happen just as fast as they did in
book one. We go from one thing being the center point, to that being ripped
away and replaced with something else from chapter to chapter. I don’t think
there is a better way for me to explain it than that. It leaves the reader lost
and discombobulated sometimes, but then again, I loved the fast pace at the
same time? It meant I was never bored, never knew what to expect, and that
something was happening. At times I did feel
like a fish swimming in deep waters – totally submerged and unaware of my
surroundings – but I enjoyed being that fish. I hope that’s not too confusing
😉
The romance in this novel is just as toxic, back and
forth and hot as ever. This is not a clean read, but it is a much cleaner one
than I remember the first book being. Diesel is a really chaotic character
because of his personality, but we get to see more of Nadia’s human and
vulnerable side in this novel. Nadia does want to be loved – properly. And
Diesel doesn’t always know how to, but he does want to love Nadia. I found it
so sweet… and there was a time in this novel where we really got to look into
Diesel’s past and his past lives. At that point, we really learned something
new about the romance too. So I definitely liked the romance in this novel.
This novel is just as gruesome and graphic as the first
one. The world building is perfect, and really demonstrates how horrible earth
has become. The way people treat each other is disgusting. And Diesel has done
some equally horrific things in his past lives. We really get to see that in
this novel. The previous novel didn’t make the world sound peachy either, but
this is the novel where it affected me more than I expected it too. I feel like
the author has really upped her game…
There were a few typos in the novel. Not too many to be
really bothersome when reading, but enough for me to feel the need to mention
it here. The ending was incredibly suspenseful, and then BANG! It was another
cliffhanger -.- So this means I have to wait for book three! I will definitely
be biting my nails anxiously as I’m waiting for the finale in the series.
I spent a long time debating between giving this book
four or three stars. In the end, I settled for three. But if the third book
will be anything like this one, or even better, I think it will be enough to
tip it into four!
