Souls of the Never is right up alley when it comes to books.
I am first and foremost a complete sci-fi/fantasy nerd, but there is nothing worse than reading a blurb, thinking that sounds fantastic and them the author being unable to deliver.
Happily this was not the case with this book.
I fell in love with the sarcastic and bolshy best friend immediately, as I am sure many others have. There was just the right amount of humour and tragedy to make you want to be best friends with the character and be desperate to save them all and keep them safe.
I'm not much for romance at all, but given everything else, which kept the story fast-paced and exciting, it wasn't really an issue.
I can see this being a winning series of books and cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone who likes everything fantasy
