Publisher's Summary

Jack Duffy is average. He lives an ordinary life with a mediocre job. He is a distracted husband, lives in a comfortable apartment, and is married to an extraordinary wife. That's how he would explain it.

At the end of an unusually bad day, his life is turned upside down. The only thing that can catch him from falling is the soul collector.

Will he be allowed to keep his soul? Or will he have to give it back?

A flashback fantasy short story

Would you consider the audio edition of Borrowed Souls to be better than the print version?

I loved the reader, Alan Philip Ormond, on this short story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Wilson

Which scene was your favorite?

The coin scenes.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it kept my interest for the entire listen.

Any additional comments?

I have read/listened to a couple of Paul B Kohler's books now, and I think he is a strong voice in fantasy. I normally don't read many short stories, but I do think he is one of the authors that I will follow in this area.

Prequel isn’t promising for the series

I was given a promo code for Book 1 and thought I would try the prequel first. I should have known better. Most prequels turn me off from the series.

I’ve always worked in Corporate America and have many friends and acquaintances in different businesses. I’ve never known anyone in “upper management” who treated others like what’s his name’s boss.
Having car problems, I’m even more baffled why he opted to drive a few blocks for lunch. I didn’t buy the reason provided by the main character.
And the thing at the pharmacy? Oh my. Which country is this in? It was ridiculous.
It’s clear the intent was to share a bad day, but I felt it was a poor conveyance and I wasn’t sympathetic nor empathetic. I could care less. This was a character who would clearly be better off dead because he was wimpy, spineless, and lacked the common sense a cockroach possesses.
With hopes of being able to forget I read this, I’ll check out the first full book in a while and see a stronger story line is written.
