In the first book of this series, Our Souls to Keep, we met Wake, a trained soul collector. In that book, Wake was given a job that he couldn't come to terms with. In this book, Wake is struggling even more. He has a physical and mental burden he is dealing with and when it seems that nothing good will come out of it, things start changing.
This book started strong and just kept on moving throughout it's entirety. The first book had set up everything nicely that the reader comes into this one being able to just keep on going, without the need of explanation. The transition of the two books makes this one even better than the first. I found myself hoping that Wake would get what he wanted, even though he's not exactly the boy next door.
This is a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat, wanting to know immediately what was going to happen next. The torture endured, the emotional pain, felt so real. It was heartbreaking many times. So many emotions in this book, from one level through the rest, it really pulled me in.
I recommend this book for readers who like reading about Satan's damned and the battle between good and evil, that goes on even when it's thought that the fight was already lost
