This is the book four in the King series, and part two of Lawless.

I absolutely adore Soulless. This is a mind blowing conclusion to an epic tale of love, loss, the family your choose, and life lived with intensity. Frazier is one of the most captivating authors I have ever read. Her writing can take me out of my own head and into a world that I wouldn’t have considered otherwise. Not only am I immersed in the world she has created, but I am completely invested in her characters. Reading the characters of Soulless I experience a physically visceral reaction.
There is a certain level of mental and emotional preparation that must be done before reading a Frazier novel. I knew this when I pick up Soulless. I was so nervous about three quarters of the way through the book because I knew that by the time I was finished I was going to be wrecked. And, in true Frazier fashion she did not disappoint.
