Dark Night of the Soul Tour Stop, Review

Dark Night of The Soul by E.M. Havens Tour Stop!

Dark Night of the Soul by E.M. Havens Book Review 

What comes after life? Jayden Schroeder is about to find out. At the end of the road of despair, she ends it all and finds out that living might not have been so bad.  Thrust into a strange and disparate world, Jayden joins a team of warriors from all places and time. Together they battle demons to save the souls of the living, all the while on the run from the end of all things - The Judgment.

Will she fight for a second chance to spare those she loves? Or surrender?

Dark Night of the Soul is a fantastical journey, both literally and figuratively for Jayden’s soul. Action adventure, fantasy, romance, and dark humor twist together to create an afterlife tale that will keep you thinking long after the final chapter.

“Welcome to hell brat”- Neala, Dark Night of the Soul

-A Fast paced, action packed, story of second chances. 

Jayden is insecure and ready to end it all. She thinks she’s fat, ugly and not worthy to be loved. This leads to her lying in her family’s bathtub after downing several pills in an attempt to kill her self. She just doesn’t want to live anymore so she takes the pills. She’s not sure they’re working until she begins to feel strange. She began to feel heavy and dizzy and before she realizes what’s happening she wakes up wearing camouflage, armed with a gun, and now has blonde hair. She has no idea where she is or how she got there. She’s not even sure she’s dead, until she’s looking up at a group of five people. The next thing she hears is “Welcome to hell brat.” This begins a journey she will never remember and never forget.

Dark night of the Soul is such a good book. It’s an interesting take on the after life or rather the in between. The characters were easily relatable and likeable. They helped tell a sad but happy story. Of course Marsh was my favorite. Marsh was the “keeper of time.” He was short with Jayden upon arrival, not to mention impatient. But deep down he was gentle, caring, and sadly hurting. I think I slowly fell in love with him the way the characters did.

What I liked the most about the story was the character build up. It was very well done. The reader gets to know the characters in such a natural way. It’s all timed perfectly. I always like when an author allows the relationships develop in a way that is realistic or comparable to real life.  It just makes the story better when they don’t force the relationships. I also liked the plot it was interesting the way the author told this story of the after life and second chances. It’s a story of hope. It’s wonderfully written and very well put together. I would definitely recommend this one to other readers.
