Publisher's Summary

Half man, half angel, all soldier.

The souleaters will stop at nothing, even death, to uphold divine law. When duty brings Noah Kavanaugh into Nurse Caroline's path, he is unprepared for the intense desire igniting between them. Rejecting the impulse to take Caroline as his mate becomes unbearable. The limits of his own self-control are tested. So is his loyalty to the law he upholds.

A forbidden human, Caroline is determined to find a cure for the mysterious Noah's illness. With her blazing attraction to him, she'd willingly sacrifice her heart, body, even her life to end his suffering. However, can she bring herself to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to save them both?

Can't wait to read the next book

I received this audiobook to review and I'm so glad I did. The storyline is not only romantic and funny but has some twists you don't expect. The narrator's voices really bring the characters to life.
This book is a no brainier read!

Amazing!

Loved everything about this book!! Great characters, all are very complex and I can’t wait to learn more about them. Loved the story, plenty of twists and suspense that kept me guessing. Plenty of heat too! Fantastic narrator, who did an amazing job of bringing the story and characters to life. I received a copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Great book

I really enjoyed this story. I felt so bad for Noah and loved watching his relationship with Caroline grow. It is full of humor, intrigue and suspense. I laughed and cried throughout the whole book. I highly recommend it

Paranormal Romance, with emphasis on the romance!

Black Soul: The Forbidden Series, Book 1
By: Odessa Gillespie Black Narrated by: Terri England, Erik Johnson

Black Soul is definitely a Paranormal Romance, with emphasis on the romance! There is some morbid and evil parts braided into the romance, but the romance is the heart of it all. I wanted to put it down in the beginning, but almost halfway through the story, it started making sense and intrigued me. I enjoyed this book, but I’m not a fan of the big picture plot so I don’t really plan on looking for book 2. Overall, I rate Black Soul with 3 Boundless Stars; I liked it.

Exciting

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

i would recommend this book to a friend. it is not a bad story, of course there is always room for growth.

What does Terri England and Erik Johnson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

i personally love audio, and they both did a great job.

Any additional comments?

this was my first Odessa Gillespie Black book, i found her take on soul eaters different and unique. i am curious to see what the next book brings. i was given this book for free for my honest opinion.

Loved this story!

I was given this story (audiobook) for an honest review. On that note, this was a good story! It was different and held my attention the entire time I listened to it. While I've read stories relating to souleaters the author was able to add her own touch to the characters, which made it stand out from anything I've read/listened to in the past. I'm definitely curious to find out what happens next for Noah and Caroline. I can't wait for book 2 to come (if it hasn't already).

This was the first audiobook I've listened to that involved two separate narrators. My only issue with the narration was when Noah was reading the newspaper and the male narrator changed his voice to sound like a newscaster (as though Noah was watching tv instead of reading). While this was just a small hiccup, I noticed it, but overall, I feel the two narrators worked well together.

Questions/Comments about the story:

I found it strange that Caroline wasn't, raising hell after finding out her mother, Gurdie, had been killed, especially since she had been decapitated. There seemed to be little to no reaction from her.

I was surprised by Caroline's age. I remember when Noah first saw Caroline he had described her as being young, but I would never have guessed she was only 19.

If the other souleaters in Amon's initial group hated him so much, why hadn't any of them tried to kill him? On that note, how was Caroline able to do it so easily?

Black Soul

Caroline’s mom has been keeping important secrets from her, kinda of. She has told her these thing all her life but she does not remember them. And now it’s Noah’s job to help her remember and save human kind! I enjoyed the storyline. Sometimes it felt like you were on the edge of your seat a little waiting for the next big thing. It took a lot for Noah to decide to fight for his life. But she was the key all along! I really enjoyed the fact that the narration went back and forth. Nice job!

Highly Recommended

I fell in love with this story!! So much so that I listened to it in one day!! This paranormal romance has strong, stunning characters that keep you captivated until the end. I sure am glad that I keep a box of tissues on my nightstand as I made good use of them while listening to this. I can't wait until I have a chance to continue with this series and this talented author!!
