What if you could travel into another person’s soul? To war for them?
Soul’s Gate is the first book in James L. Rubart’s first series after writing three novels under B&H Publishing, including the bestseller, Rooms. The premise of someone being able to enter someone else’s soul and to war for them against the works of the Enemy is most intriguing. However, I would have liked to see the idea a little more fleshed out. To me, it seemed like there was something missing. It might have been just because of where my mind went when thinking of all the possibilities that James could have used. I do have to say that I didn’t enjoy it as much as I did James’ third novel, The Chair which was my favorite of the three he had written previously.
I am not saying that Soul’s Gate was a bad book. In fact, I enjoyed it for what it is. The characters were great, especially Reece, whom I am looking forward to see more of. I also want to see what happens to another character, but I am not sure if James plans on telling us this or not in the next book of the series.
Those who enjoyed Frank Peretti’s Darkness books may very well enjoy this book. The reader will find the story engaging while learning from the great themes in this book, such as freedom from one’s past.
I will be getting the next book in the series, Memory’s Door, when it comes out next year.
Note: I received a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are mine.
