Book Review : Soulless by MV Kasi

Soulless person is one person we all would think to stay clear from. Me and my other two even the one in Black with red horns was not into the Soulless person. Her schemes and her calculative moves make you cringe. But as I went on reading and one by one crack appeared in Sia’s Soulless persona and started to intrigue me. (The one in white with a bright halo, the one in Black with red horns and me)

Through Ajay, little by little the peeling off layer by layer into a soulless person was an unexpected path.
When first started with Sia I was not very interested in her character but slowly as moved on through Ajay layer after layer peeled off from her and her true self, started to come out...  As the person was revealed slowly before us the character Sia grew on me. The indifference turned to attention ... attention to sympathy and soon sympathy became empathy...
I was hurting with her in the closed corners... it was so painful as if it had happened to me. It felt I was going through her journey along with her, day in and day out... 
The only thing bothered me was the ending, I am very impatient to wait to know what happened. I am not usually a fan of second parts for a novel. The wait is not something I have ever enjoyed... 
But here by the end of the book, you are at the edge of the seat. So there is no option but pick up the next NOW….
This was my first MV Kasi book but never the last ... Loved the dynamics of the characters. Looking forward to reading more of her works...


Blurb

They say when you take revenge you lose a part of your soul. 

But Sia hadn't felt her soul in a very long time. She only knew the feeling of soul-crushing fear and helplessness. Especially during the nights, when she fought an invisible enemy that terrorized her during the nightmares. Her days weren't any better either. She spent them desperately trying to gain control of her life while battling her various fears and addictions. 
She was only twenty three, but she had resigned herself to live the rest of her life that way. Fearing the unknown. 
Until it all changed one day. 
Now she remembered. And she knew. She knew that the monster from her nightmares was real. And also that her soul had been ripped apart from her. 
The memories brought in fear, rage and pain, along with a strong craving for a swift payback. 
But revenge was a dish best served cold. And it required a complete absence of emotion. 
So now? Now she plotted. And she schemed. She prepared herself in every possible way to hunt and destroy her enemy. 
But every mission, however well planned can go awry. Sometimes it's because even though one can be soulless, there is always the heart. A very weak and desperate heart that was being stolen by a man. 
A man who was like a bright spark of vivid colors in her otherwise dark and dreary life. 
A man who was only supposed to be collateral damage in her ultimate war.
