I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Soul Slam by Allie Burton is a unique, well-written story. It’s the first time I read a paranormal centered around Egyptian mythology (one of my favorites).
The characters are fantastic in this story. Two kids meet totally by accident and find they have a lot of things in common. I loved Olivia. She didn’t start out as the atypical strong protagonist. Olivia had to grow into that role (maybe with a little help from a certain Egyptian pharaoh). Her journey included a disillusioned young man, Xander. He was prepared, so he thought, to assume a lofty title. When plans changed, he also had to grow.
The villains in Soul Slam were definitely evil. They were hell bent on their own agendas. Fitch, X and their goons didn’t care who got hurt. This story was about power and how you can use it for good or evil. Well, the bad guys completely embraced the dark side.
I truly enjoyed Allie Burton’s writing style. I highly recommend reading Soul Slam. You won’t be disappointed.
