Book Review-The Soul Mender (The Soul Mender Trilogy Book 1)- R.S. Dabney

Friday, June 15, 2018

This is a non stop psychological ride which will keep you reading and guessing! Definitely not for the faint of heart!!

Now if you can try to imagine that there are two parallel worlds with exactly the same people--but one is bad and the other good. The worlds themselves are different - all backwards kind of. Now try to imagine you were flung into this alternative world and met up with your polar opposite. Like black and white--but were they really? The worst part--if one died in one world--then the other soul died in that other world.

Now try to imagine that everyone you thought was bad was good and that somehow YOU were the one meant to save the world and get it back together. You do have help-----but-----it seems everyone is after you!

Then just as you think you might find out--a cliff hanger and a whopper of one! This is the 1st in a trilogy--with that kind of cliffhanger I think you all will be seeing them on here as well.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

In a wild escape to avoid becoming the sixth victim of the elusive Rocky Mountain Murderer, twenty-two-year-old Riley Dale finds herself flung into a universe parallel to her own, where Las Vegas is known for its churches, terrorist attacks are initiated by the United States, and peace can be found in the darkest corners of the globe.

As the deadly visions that have haunted her since childhood become real, Riley is confronted with the implausible story of a world split in two and the stark contrast between good and evil in people she thought she knew.

Racing deeper into the mystery of the new world, Riley discovers the explosive truth about her ancestors who have been hunted for thousands of years because of a single mistake made long ago.

And now it’s her turn to pay for that blunder.

Pursued by both the government and a clandestine sect of assassins, Riley must ally with the only people in the parallel universe willing to keep her safe—the drug-addicted, prostituting other half of her soul, and the counter soul of a man who tortured and killed five young women.

Discover new worlds in this Kirkus Star Awarded ( ) book that is being called "not only highly entertaining, but profoundly edifying!"

About the Author: (from Amazon)

Debut author R.S. Dabney’s passion for reading, writing, and exploring thrilling stories about unlikely heroes conquering evil started at a young age, culminating in the completion of her first novel, The Soul Mender, book one in The Soul Mender Trilogy. Her favorite books span every genre and she likes to describe her own work as having something for everyone—a sprinkle of suspense, a dash of adventure, and a whole lot of good versus evil.

R.S. grew up running around the red rocks and ravines in the deserts of southern Utah, building forts, fighting battles, and living the lives of all the characters she and her friends created. An avid lover of all things nature and the outdoors, R.S. attended Texas A&M University where she majored in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation and minored in Park and Natural Resource Management. She worked for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for three years before leaving to pursue her dream of writing a novel.

She currently lives in the Big Bend region of Texas with her husband, two dogs, and cat. When she isn’t lost in another dimension creating havoc for her characters and stories, she enjoys mountain biking, exploring the desert, and eating way too much Mexican food.

R.S. can be found at, Twitter @rsdabney, Instagrm @rsdabneyauthor, Facebook, or occasionally on the front porch of the Starlight Theater in Terlingua having a beer.

I don’t like psychological thrillers. I don’t think they put me in a healthy state of mind.

sounds different not really the type of book that I normally read. But have to say when I started reading the review the first thing I though of was a Star Trek show.

I love psychological stories and psychological thrillers!
I have heard of people who truly do believe in the concept of parallel universes too although I'm not sure in this same way as in her story but it's an interesting theory and would be interesting to read one person's vision of such.
I like that the story line is not the "same old/same old" plot that too many do that are too similar to one another, this one is more unique so points for that, right off the bat, for me!
