Crighton is a soul-catcher demon. He has worked as one for most of his life, and he is good at it. He lacks empathy and has tricked humans into doing horrible deeds to guide them into Hell. One day, the Devil gives him a task that will turn his life upside down: catch an angel. He has done this before, but this specific angel will turn out to be more important to him than he could have ever imagined. The angel and the demon will embark themselves on an adventure, fighting to survive, in which they will get to know and accept each other as they are.

Soul Seeker, by Kaylin McFarren, is an action-packed, supernatural story surrounding demons, angels, Heaven, and Hell. It is an intriguing story, full of family secrets and complex characters; a novel about redemption and forgiveness, with a complicated romance that will keep the readers interested.

My favorite thing about this book was that it was fast-paced. The author never spent more time than necessary to describe stuff that was not important to the plot. Because of this, the story was never dull, and it was easy to read.

However, at times it felt like it was too fast-paced. Certain important aspects of the plot happened too fast, and that was a bit confusing at times. For example, the beginning of the romantic relationship happened very fast, and it felt like it made no sense at first. Besides, so much happened in little time, so it was hard to understand what was crucial for the plot-line.

I love reading about romance, which was one of the reasons I picked this book to review. I have to admit that I did not always enjoy the romantic relationship portrayed in this book. It did not seem healthy at times, which made me uncomfortable. I understand that it was part of the characterization, but I still felt like it took away from the story.

I have decided to give this book 2 out of 4 stars. Overall, it was fun and easy to read. The story was always intriguing, and reading about the worlds of angels and demons was quite interesting. Still, certain romance aspects of the book and the fact that it was fast-paced made it less enjoyable. I would recommend this book to mature readers who enjoy fiction and romance, as it contains some profanities and mature topics. Also, there is a scene of an assault that could be triggering or upsetting to some readers.
