Amazon Reviewer Butcherdx
Incredible story! Souls Rise is a tale of Gaspard's past, which gives backstory explaining what makes him who he is, as well as showing how events transpired to place Gaspard in New Orleans with Kara as his bodyguard. At first I was disappointed that the entire story was going to be set in the past, only because I'm curious to find out what happens next in the Gaspard and Kara saga. But patience is a virtue, and this story rewarded said patience by drawing me in, refusing to let me go until the last page. I still eagerly await the next in this saga, but feel like I understand this world and its players much more now.

About the Author

J.D. Blackrose loves all things storytelling and celebrates great writing by posting about it on her website,
When not writing, Blackrose lives with three children, an enormous orange cat, her husband and a full-time job in Corporate Communications. She’s fearful that so-called normal people will discover exactly how often she thinks about wicked fairies, nasty wizards, homicidal elevators, treacherous forests, and the odd murder, even when she is supposed to be having coffee with a friend or cheering her daughter on during a soccer game. As a survival tactic, she has mastered the art of looking interested.
