Soulless by Clea Saal Book Summary:
What do you get when you mix a dead child, a movie buff, a chiromancer-anthropologist, a school shooting, and what appears to be a series of unrelated, everyday events? What you get is a disturbing possibility that exists in the present tense. Soulless is a book that walks a fine line between horror, mystery and science fiction, however, if you are looking for laser-gun-toting aliens, mother ships and fast-paced action, you will not find them here. In spite of that, you must not let those absences lure you into a false sense of security. Just look around and remember that truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. The most disturbing thing about Soulless is precisely the fact that you will not find impossible circumstances in its pages. What you will find is a different perspective on familiar facts. In this book the line that separates fantasy and reality is gradually blurred until it finally disappears, good and evil merge into one, as do hope and hopelessness. Before it is over you will be looking for a way to prove to yourself that this is just a work of fiction.
