From the gothic eccentricity of Asheville, North Carolina, to the terrifying recesses of the Appalachian wilderness, from modern demonology to ancient Cherokee mythology, Soul Catcher follows the tormented journey of folk artist Livia Belane, who has been stalked through many lives by a sadistic and vengeful demon.
Livia and her loved ones, including her frontier-era soulmate and husband, Ian, a Soul Hunter, have never beaten the demon before. Now, in this life, he's found them again.
"Hello from Deborah Smith, now writing as Leigh Bridger. If you know me from my women's fiction novels like A Place to Call Home, Sweet Hush, A Gentle Rain, The Crossroads Cafe, On Bear Mountain, and others, you may wonder why I've taken off in this new direction, under a pen name. I love the urban fantasy genre, I love folk art… and I love Asheville, North Carolina. So putting all three together in a fast-paced, sexy, and some might say way-violent novel, was great fun. Soul Catcher is not for the faint of heart, and it's not the same tone or style as my women's fiction, so that's why I picked a pen name."

Excellent book. Very good writing. Loved the story, it was left with you wanting more. The story will take you in from the beginning and not let you go until the end. Highly recommend
Traci Odom has done an excellent job narrating. Her voices are consistent with each character. The emotions used will keep you on your toes.

The most enjoyable part of this book was the remarkable job by the narrator, Traci Odom. She vocally captures the characters so beautifully and traverses between them with such fine drawn distinction. Clearly, she has taken enormous care with these characterizations and it shows, as these people leap right out of the book, just as Livia's paintings come to life in the story.
I could listen to Traci Odom read to me all day long!

I really wanted to like this book. I liked the story line, liked the characters but felt they weren't developed enough. I felt like it was jumbled a little and I couldn't get into the flow of it. Interesting premise though and I would give the author another listen.
I like a wide range of genres. Favorites include Horror, SciFi, Fantasy, Thriller, LGBT, classics and history.
This book is very dark, violent and brutal. Not for the squeamish. Not exactly what I was expecting but I loved it. The mythology created was pretty awesome. I really enjoyed the characters. The story jumped right in and I was never bored. Definitely going to follow this series.
The narrator did an awesome job. Great performance.
