    "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.

    "Satisfying"
    What made the experience of listening to My Soul to Take the most enjoyable?

    Scintillating romance!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The entire series is a testament to eternal love. Dawit showed us the depths of his passion in My Soul to Keep. Jessica rose as a heroine while living in the aftermath of Dawit's passion in The Living Blood. In Blood Colony, we experienced the flirtation of a new, young and potentially fatal love. My Soul to Take demonstrated the maturity of the individuals involved in the flirtation of book 3 and how that maturity allowed two beings that could have destroyed each other to happily coexist in a world of their choosing. It is a satisfying end to a beautiful circle of love, passion and consequences.


    What aspect of Lizan Mitchell’s performance would you have changed?

    She is not my favorite narrator. Luckily the story made it easy to get past the performance.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love, passion and consequences

    "Hard to Follow"
    What disappointed you about My Soul to Take?

    It's a long winding story that gets good then cuts to some other portion that presents as if you knew the history of the series in the current book.


    What could Tananarive Due have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Shortened some of the histrionics


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from My Soul to Take?

    Several
