Devourer of Souls

Devourer of Souls - Kevin Lucia This one has been on my wish list for a while and when I saw that it was available on KU along with narration, I jumped on it and am very glad that I did. This review is for the Audible edition.

Initially, I did not realize that this was two linked novellas, so I had a bit of a wtf moment when the second story started. I’m not that bright, but finally figured it out, and settled back into it quite nicely. I’m sure if I was reading, instead of listening, it would not have been an issue. Or maybe, if I just read the synopsis before I started…whatever.

Both “Sophan” and “The Man in Yellow” were very well written and outside of some minor repetitive thoughts in TMIY, both tales were suspenseful and sinister with supernatural undertones of cosmic horror. I was impressed how Kevin was able to create two very different atmospheres in his stories yet keep them (thinly) connected. Very well done and a solid 4 stars. I look forward to more from Mr. Lucia.
