Soul Control Book Review
Title: Soul Control
Author: C. Elizabeth
Publisher: Wings ePress
Pages: 454
Genre: YA Paranormal
Format: Paperback, Kindle

“Lead us not into temptation, deliver us from evil.” 
Words that ring true for seventeen-year-old Saydi Gardiner upon discovering her ancestry.  But if she has doubts, further confirmation is forthcoming and it comes in the form of a wickedly gorgeous Nathanael Braxton, when he steals her heart and cuddles into her sole – the last place the boy should be. 
Nineteen-year-old Nathanael’s unrelenting good looks aren’t the only thing that make him dangerous – and he knows it!  However, his caring human side struggles with a loyalty – a loyalty that binds him to the hunt for the soul that will give his family the power they seek.  
There’s only one problem: When he finds her, Nathanael falls in love with his prey – Saydi. 
My Review:

I really enjoyed reading this book and think that you will too if you love YA Fantasy stories. It had everything you could possibly want in a story: romance, fantasy and good versus evil all wrapped up into one.

It flowed really good and was easy to read. I liked that there weren't any explicit sexual scenes or foul language so this book can definitely be read by teens. I have really gotten tired of books that do use those two formats in their books because it's so tedious and uncalled for in telling a story.

I was really glad that Saydi finally got to meet her father and that her family was complete by the end of the book. I also am glad that we got to find out what happened to several characters in the book. The author took us on a believable journey with several teenage couples and we got a glimpse into what it's like to be back in High School with all of it's drama and friendships and how some stood the test of time.

You won't regret reading this story or letting your young teens read also.

Happy Reading!

I’ve always believed the soul connects us together. Being able to feel emotion, love one another, hurt one another, laugh, cry... all the things that make us human. Did I believe my soul was an actual physicality of my human make-up? That it could be whisked off into the darkness by a demon?  
No. To me, life held enough hurt and pain without having to worry that there were forces of evil crouched in the shadows--waiting for me to swear, or something along those lines.  
As the warmth of the morning sun brushed against my face, I heard the cries and whimpers of the ones I loved.  
Truth be told... dying would be better than the alternative.
About the Author:

C. Elizabeth lives in St. Albert,  Alberta, Canada and during her short writing career she’s learned a lot about herself, sometimes to the point that she wonders how the heck she got this far in life and know so little about herself.

For the majority of her life she dabbled in many things, such as drawing, photography, sewing, only to find that after a while, she would lose interest, but writing is a different story — it found her and continues to be an addiction, as well as a most wonderful, incredible passion.

Not only does she write novels, but she does whatever she can to hone her craft.  Such as attending the New York Pitch Conference, seminars and the like, as well, she writes for online magazines on the topic of… you guessed it, writing.

Her latest book is the YA paranormal romance, Soul Control.
