Publisher's Summary

What if everything you knew about the afterlife was wrong? Welcome to Fia's world.

Fia hates the dead. With bleeding wounds and broken bodies, the spirits infect her with the anguish of their last living moments. Thrust into adult life after a childhood spent in an institution, the assaults escalate, and the world thinks she owns the deluxe edition of crazy.

Fia needs a dead-free zone if she's going to learn how to cope with life among the living. Convinced that the woods are empty and safe, she signs on with a wilderness search and rescue team.

Bad assumption. Big mistake. There is no relief from the demanding dead.

When Fia witnesses a psychopomp leading a dead boy through a portal to the afterlife, she is frantic to learn the secret of how to free herself from the dead. Can she overcome her necrophobia and serve the Guide of Souls?

For listeners who enjoy a riveting tale with surprises at every turn. Soul Search will keep you listening till the end. This is the first novel of the Zackie Stories.

Thrills and Suspense

Soul Search is a good story of thrills and suspense in book 1 of the series. Author Reyna Favis creates a creative world with a believable foundation. Reyna pairs the amazing Zackie, a dog who detects spirits lingering amid the living, with a strong character in Fia, who doesn’t fully comprehend her ability to sense the dead. There are surprises at every turn from both living and dead.

Fia and Cam, Zackie’s handler, do not initially like one another. Together this threesome works to search and rescue living people, yet they keep encountering souls who need a different kind of saving. As the story progresses, Cam provides Fia an understanding of her connections to the unliving beings.

The character development is spot on, as is the intermixing of the separate vignettes that allow Fia to understand her powers. Fia is a young girl who left her adoptive parents when they tried to reconcile her behavior with medications. Fia works to earn her way and give back to her community, making her an endearing character. The journey of Fia as she matures and learns to trust is helped by working with Cam and Zackie. Trust is a difficult concept for Fia to accept.

This fast-moving story contains realistic elements and history, making this believable. The mixture of life lessons is skillfully woven throughout the story, making it thought-provoking long after it ends. It is enjoyable suspense that kept me engaged.
The narration by Eleanor Caudill is excellent in her pace and modulation in her narration. Indeed, a voice-actor, Eleanor maintains the different voices of all characters expertly from start to finish. There are no issues with the quality of this audible.

Soul Search is a great start to the series. I look forward to more Zackie stories. Listeners who enjoy tales of supernatural, thrills, ghosts, and suspense will love this book and the series.

Good story

I enjoyed the story itself and the performance was spot on. Everything was a touch dramatic for me with hyper reactive "feelings" but if you like that, you'll enjoy this.

Entertaining and fun!

My favorite character was the dog with an attitude. He could also see Spirits and their realm. He is always saving the humans
From the bad spirits. you like ghost and main characters that can help them pass on, you like this book.

Wonderful Listen

I really enjoyed the story, and the narrator was wonderful. It was easy to follow the story, and differentiate between the characters. I lost myself in the story, and before I knew it, hours had passed, and I was more than halfway through the recording! It's easy to fall in love with Zackie and Fia, as Fia learns more about her strange abilities and Zackie helps those souls in need of her help. Cannot recommend enough!

Loved the Characters

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were all really likeable. There was humor, and sadness, and unrequited love, and, of course, ghosts. The narrator was awesome. Great voices and great emotion. I am definitely looking forward to more books in this series! I received this book for free at my request from Audiobook Boom.

Different- In a great way!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I picked up this book because I love supernatural, paranormal and anything spooky. There is nothing better than curling up at night with a hot cup of tea and being scared senseless by a book! Well worth the nightmares in my opinion.

The narrator was great, she really knows how to suck you into the story with her voice ( I guess that is a good thing in her line of work). I loved this book from the start all the way to the end and I was very pleased with it. The story was a good pace and the characters felt very fleshed out. I will be looking for more books from this author!

A Fun and Enthralling Storyline

I thought this book was well done. The narration was compelling and the plot fun. I think anyone into dogs, search and rescue and/orr the supernatural will have a good read with this one. It made my car drive in the heat of summer enjoyable. I recommend and look forward to the continuing story.
