(Book) Soul Intent by Dennis Batchelder

66

I read the first book in this series, Soul Identity, earlier this year. It was a really good techno-thriller type of book, great premise and interesting. When I heard that there was a sequel, I wasn’t sure what to think. I didn’t really think that there was room left for a sequel and wasn’t sure where they would take it. Ah, but see! That’s the point right? To write a complete book. I always complain when authors leave huge gaping holes in the ending so they can write a sequel. It annoys me!

So, I bought it… and I really enjoyed it! The elements of adventure and secrets of this “organization” are all still intact. It’s a really great premise and you wonder, do the members think they are reincarnated? Is it random? How is their soul line formed and how/why? At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter, people join for different reasons. In this one, a Nazi joins in 1946… and the story goes from there. All of our favorite characters are back.

The ending was maybe a little predictable, but the writing is superb. Read this one, it’s a great ride!
