Review: Soul Cutter by Lexa Cain

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 7.54.13 PMI recently enjoyed reading Soul Cutter by Alexa Cain. The story line engaged me from the beginning—a twisted plot with surprising turns kept me fully absorbed.

The story blends exotic locale and legend together to weave a unique tale. Well written and formatted, the book is a professional effort by an author that knows her craft. I will be reading more Lexa Cain.

From Amazon: The Soul Cutter is hunting again.

Seventeen-year-old Élan spends her free time videoing psychic scams and outing them online. Skepticism makes life safe—all the ghosts Élan encounters are fakes. When her estranged mother disappears from a film shoot in Egypt, Élan puts her medium-busting activities on hold and joins the search.

In Egypt, the superstitious film crew sucks at finding her mom. When a hotel guest is killed, whispers start—the locals think their legendary Soul Cutter has come back from the dead. Élan’s only ally is Ramsey, a film-crew intern, but he’s arrogant, stubborn—and hiding dangerous secrets.

When Élan discovers the Soul Cutter is no scam, she finds herself locked in a deadly battle against a supernatural killer with more than her mother’s life at stake.

Élan’s fighting for her very soul.
