I was sent this book for review and found it to be an intelligent and thought provoking read.

This story is deeply philosophical and explores worlds and concepts of life and death, good versus evil and transcendence in an original and clever way.

Although this first in the series it holds great significance to what it means to be human and the forces that surround us and that the next book will only delve deeper.

It too explores the 'reality' of society and its encompassing sadness and hardships - the very journeys in which make Terra's role so important.

Extremely well done.

This is a book where I felt torn. I loved the main character Terra, but also felt at times she was too distant and detached. At the same time I also felt she reflected a younger version of myself (although my life is not quite so exciting). Yet I also cried at points in the book, so maybe it is a good thing that one of us had a bit more emotional detachment!
The story line setup has enormous potential and I feel this series of book might grow and grow. Many of the ideas tie in with New Age philosophy but it does make a brilliant story.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found I couldn't put it down. I want to know what happens next. Terra is a character that I feel people either will connect with or simply won't understand, but for those that get her they will love her.

This book's genre is 'Paranormal Romance'. Terra is a female guiding spirit who lives in The Tweens. The Tweens is not elaborately described, so you can leave it up to your imagination. Terra 's calling in the Tweens is to guide other entities who will enter earth and will be given a mortal body; that's what Terra has done for many thousands of years and for thousands of corporeal souls. Once in the human world, they still have free will, though Terra, who will be in charge of a certain number of mortals, guides them by what she receives from The One. Again, The One is not described in detail, but we get the impression that he/she is not unlike a supreme being, and whatever he/she is doing is for the good of all and towards a good goal. The mortals who live on earth are not aware of their previous existence in The Tweens whilst on earth. (So, you could be one now being guided by someone like Terra :) - I quite like that thought! Once their mortal body perishes, the return to 'The Tweens'. Again, nice thought!

Than Terry gets a new 'charge': Liam. There is an immediate connection between the two, and a deep bond between them develops. But Terra knows that Liam's calling is to go to earth as a mortal, and she has to prepare him. But Terra fears for him, as there is nasty existence on earth called The Scrouge which effects mortals in a bad way. The One provides Terra with two options to send him to earth: either as a child born to a prostitute or as a child of a woman who is in a permanent coma. But that's not the only choice Terra will have to make.

The book expanded my horizon and you have to be prepared to let your common perceptions of 'matter' and 'life as we know it' wander and think 'outside the box' i.e. planet earth and what else is there.

The author passed me this book so I could review it. And I am very pleased that she did.

It wouldn't necessarily be the kind of book I would pick up, naturally being drawn to historical fiction, but I will now be looking out for similar books in the future.

The story is one of soul mates and the lengths one woman, Terra, will go to protect the soul she loves. A guide in a realm called The Tweens, she places `souls' on Earth and guides them to reach their potential and destiny. Not wanting to give the plot away, I will only say that there is an earthly fight for souls with the `scourge' who threaten to destroy the one she loves.

The plot is well thought out and paced and I found it difficult to put it down. This book was a joy to read and has stayed with me long after I finished the last page.

This is the first book in a trilogy and the ending leaves the book perfectly poised for book two. It has enormous potential to be a big hit. Sara's imagination is phenomenal and I can't wait to see where it takes us next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Star Crossed lovers 26 May 2014
By Biker Babs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Corporeal Pull was a different type of story than I usually read. Sort of a cross between science fiction and fantasy. There was a lot of “world building” at the beginning but once the action started it pulled me right in and I enjoyed the imaginative and well written storyline.
Like Romeo and Juliet and other doomed literary lovers, the attraction between mismatched entities: Terra (a soul guide) and Liam (her newest charge) was sweet and instantaneous, but against normal protocol in their otherworldly existence.
The author has taken many different ideas such as soul mates, reincarnation, free will, and a supreme creator and reimagined a world where guides look down upon the earth and help souls reach their purpose of common good for The One.
As the story progressed, I found myself reminded of Lucifer falling to earth and infecting humanity with evil because of the huge struggle going on between good and evil souls. Intent on protecting the love of her life from this scourge of evil, Terra follows Liam to earth when he is born and finds herself in danger as well. Terra may be the only entity with the knowledge to stop the scourge from infecting every living human. Will she be able to keep Liam safe so they can be together for eternity or will he be sacrificed as part of the bigger plan? I suggest you read The Corporeal Pull and find out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Deeply philosophical 23 Jan. 2014
By Mrs. G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is not your typical little happy sci-fi action romance at all. From the very beginning, it gets you thinking about deeper things--the meaning of life and relationships. Not what I expected, but worth diving into. I found it more mental than emotional, even though it was a love story, which made it a little hard for me to connect with Terra (the main character). However, the whole premise is fascinating.

One little thing: I wish there had been a kindle navigable table of contents for easy jumping back to review this or that scene. (That's where I miss having a paperback instead of a digital copy. You can't dog-ear e-pages quite the same way.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul mates join the battle between good and evil 11 Jun. 2014
By Diane Rapp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was filled with loads of interesting ideas and situations. When Terra met Liam she didn’t know that her very existence would change in a heartbeat. As a “guide” for corporeal entities, she has linked minds with her charges and helped them fulfill their divine purpose during their lives on Earth. She noticed that soul mates often found their partners again and again, during many lifetimes, but she never thought she’d meet her own soul mate until she touched Liam’s hand. Terra risks everything, including her immortal soul, to protect Liam from the evil that threatens his life. During the process she learns about the terrible Scrouge that might threaten everyone in the Tweens and on Earth. Can she save Liam? Will she survive the ordeal herself?

Whether you believe in a higher authority or the existence of good and evil, this story will tug at your heart. Two souls linked by love must survive against desperate odds and find each other in a dangerous world. Terra is courageous and able to learn how to fight evil although she occupies a weak child’s body. Her determination and heart make us want to see her succeed, but the dangers might be too much for one heavenly entity as she navigates the underbelly of real life to save her soul mate.

This is a clean read without explicit sex or bloody violence, which is remarkable since there are battle scenes again evil entities. The author supplied a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review, and I happily recommend it to any reader, young or old.

4.0 out of 5 stars I hope there is a sequel! 4 Aug. 2014
By Mimi Zane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
*I was given a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Do you believe in Love-at-First-Sight? After reading this book you will. The guiding spirit of Tweens was content with her job overlooking and managing corporeal charges down on Earth. However, that changed when she meets the gorgeous newcomer Liam. She begins to questions everything and soon enough a cute light romance begins to form.

I'm the type of person that in order to love the book, I have to be hooked from the very first page. Unfortunately that didn't happen with The Corporeal Pull. I continued reading for review purposes but wasn't expecting anything great. However my perception changed by the third chapter. From then on I was loving this beautifully written novel. The author does a great job giving definition and reason to the insta-love.

Personally, I would recommend this book to most of my friends. Fans of paranormal romance will enjoy this read. I am so happy I was given the opportunity to review this book. I'm looking forward to the sequel!

If you haven't checked out The Corporeal Pull do so now! You will not regret it!

There has been a cover change since I received the book and I have to admit, I love the new look. This cover is more personal and related to the plot of the story compared to the original the original.
