Book Description

12 July 2012 Seventeen
From the award-winning series Seventeen comes a high-octane, action-packed twist on immortality.

'My name is Lucas Soul. Today, I died again. This is my fifteenth death in the last four hundred and fifty years.'

Soul is an outcast of the immortal societies. Born of a Bastian mother and a Crovir father, a half breed whose very existence is abhorred by the two races, he spends the first three hundred and fifty years of his life being chased and killed by the Hunters.

One fall night in Boston, the Hunt starts again, resulting in Soul's fifteenth death and triggering a chain of events that sends him on the run with Reid Hasley, a former US Marine and his human business partner of ten years. From Paris to Prague, their search for answers will lead them deep into the immortal societies and bring them face to face with someone from Soul's past. Shocking secrets are uncovered and fresh allies come to the fore as they attempt to put a stop to a new and terrifying threat to both immortals and humans.

Time is running out for Soul. Can he get to the truth before his seventeenth death, protect the ones he loves and prevent another immortal war?

If you like fast-paced, action-packed thrillers with a supernatural twist, download a sample or buy Soul Meaning now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read 23 July 2012
By kitty
I took this book on holiday with me to the maldives on my Kindle, little did I know once I started reading I wouldnt be able to stop. Missed out on two days diving but thoroughly worth it. Enjoyable read with plot that makes you want to find out what happens on the next page. Can't wait for the next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great premise 17 Sep 2013
The immortal Crovir and Bastian races have been at each other's throats for centuries. So, when Lucas Soul (a half-breed) finds that half the immortals want him dead, Lucas and his best bud Reid bomb their way through Europe trying to figure out why.

Soul Meaning is very much a plot-driven book. I usually have a preference for books that are slow paced, centred on world building and character development, but I actually quite enjoyed the change of scenery Soul Meaning provided.

Although this book is good, it didn't blow me away. There were far too many action scenes in the first half of the novel for my liking and not enough exposure of the plot. Thankfully the focus shifted in the second half of the book. The two main characters (Lucas and Reid) were solid creations, but the secondary characters didn't particularly shine, mainly due to the first person narration. I also couldn't see how the Crovir and the Bastians were different races - they seemed pretty much exactly the same to me. Perhaps this will be clarified in later books (or maybe I missed something?).

However, I will continue reading the series. I liked the premise and there were some cool ideas thrown in.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great way to burn a few hours on a long flight 22 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Without risking any spoilers, if you like movies like Highlander and Underworld you'll enjoy this. It's a fast paced, well observed novel with some interesting characters and enough twists to keep even the most sceptical reader interested. The novel opens with a bang as Lucas Soul dies, and is reborn in the first few lines - and that's pretty much the pace you get until the final page. The descriptions are sumptuously in depth as the story carries you across the world across some of my favourite cities and the fight scenes are just begging to be put on camera. A great start to the series, I'm looking forward to the sequel already!
