Writing a review for every book is a different experience. With some books, the words just flow. The thoughts and feelings are simple and are right there to be put down on paper. Some take a little mulling over. But till date no book has put me in such a quandary as “Soulless”. No…no…no… don’t get me wrong. It wasn’t because I didn’t know what to say. It was because I didn’t know where to start and how to say it all. I was so scared of not being able to do justice to the book.
The first chapter itself had me hooked. I was like. “OMG! Can one really be that unfeeling?” And from there on till the end, it just pulled me in.
The book is a vortex of emotions: love, lust, fear, hate, anger, distrust, betrayal.
When I review a book, I normally give it a quick read just to gauge how interesting it is, to get the overall feel of it and then I read it again for the finer details, before I sit down to pen a review.
With “Soulless” every time I read the book, I got pulled in so deeply, I got lost in the emotions of Sia, the protagonist. I wondered at her cold blooded pursuit of revenge, I cried with her as she relived her nightmares, I felt the heat when she was in bed with Ajay. I just kept going back to the book again and again, forgetting that I had to write about it.
When I came to the end, I was like, “No…no..no… I want more. What’s going to happen next?” I must say, I am really waiting for the sequel “Ruthless” but M.V.Kasi will have her work cut out to keep it as gripping as this one.
I am very ‘kanjoos’ (stingy) when it comes to giving 5 stars to any book, but I definitely think “Soulless” deserves it! This is one book you will read over and over again!
They say when you take revenge you lose a part of your soul.
But Sia hadn’t felt her soul in a very long time. She only knew the soul-crushing fear and helplessness. Especially during the nights, when she fought an invisible enemy that terrorized her during the nightmares.
Her days weren’t any better either. She spent most of them trying to desperately gain control of her life while battling her various fears and addictions.
She was only twenty three, but she had resigned herself to live the rest of her life that way. Fearing the unknown.
Until it all changed one day.
Now she knew. She knew that the monster from her nightmares was real. And also that her soul had been ripped apart from her.
The memories had brought in fear, rage and pain, along with a strong craving for a swift payback.
But revenge was a dish best served cold. And it required a complete absence of emotion.
Now she plotted. And she schemed. She prepared herself in every possible way to hunt and destroy her enemy.
But every mission, however well planned can go awry. Sometimes it’s because even though one can be soulless, there is always the heart. A very weak and desperate heart that was being stolen by a man.
A man who was like a bright spark of vivid colors in her otherwise dark and dreary life.
A man…who was only supposed to be collateral damage.
