    Essence and New York Times best-selling author Tananarive Due has established herself as a premier figure in paranormal suspense - with champions including horror master Stephen King. My Soul to Take continues the saga of a line of immortals destined to save the world from the apocalypse. Telepath Fana and the Life Brothers are attempting to prevent the spread of a devastating plague, but their efforts are challenged by an unlikely opponent - Fana’s fiancé, Michel.

    Adrienne says: "Beautifully written!! Narration is spot on!!!"
    "Good, but strange ending"

    If you could sum up My Soul to Take in three words, what would they be?

    Almost, but not


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I thought the ending, whatever the authors intentions showed a certain lake of faith in humanity, in God and hope for the future. Despite the blood supposedly coming down from Christ certainly no one in the book seem to favor any of his teaching or traits and don't seem to put any stock in traditional values of good and evil.

    You have to read it to understand. Basically in the end we all have to be directed by Big Brother Blood because we are too stupid and immature to handle our own destinies or draw together as a human community.

    Also one character gets punished for trying to kill what appears to honestly be a very evil dude and I think anyone of us would agree that the attempt was the right thing to do since the honest goal of said evil dude was mass genocide of the human population of the entire planet.

    All in all okay characters, interesting story but the ending left feeling a little alienated towards the messiah figures.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    John Wrights scenes talking to the recruits for his army and why they were fighting. They felt like the most human figures in the entire book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The reunion of Pheonix's family.


    Any additional comments?

    If their is a fifth book I hope Jesus arrives to give our immortals a smack down and reprimand.
