4 out of 5 Black Cats
Slippery Souls by Rachael H Dixon is a fun read about a girl named Libby Hood. At the beginning of the book, she and her dog, Rufus, are struck by a car and end up in a place called Sunray Bay, purgatory for the rest of us. Now Libby finds herself on a beach where her dog can talk to her, monsters are real, and nothing in the world makes sense. As we travel along with Libby, we discover one kooky place that will keep you entertained for hours.
I really like how developed the Sunray Bay world is in this book. Dixon obviously put a lot of thought into the setting. It really comes alive as we travel along with Libby and discover it a piece at a time instead of having a bunch of info dumped on the reader in a telling fashion, a serious problem with many self-published stories. If you don’t know what I’m talking about then pick this book up. It’s a great example of how to do it right.
I can’t comment on the kindle or epub formatting because I was sent a PDF version of the story. However, I can comment on typos etc., and I found very, very few. Great job on the editing. Great writing and great editing make for a smooth read, which Slippery Souls definitely accomplishes.
The character development of this novel is excellent. Libby and Rufus’s sarcastic humor will keep you entertained, while the dark side of the other main characters will draw you into the story and make you wonder what could possibly happen next.
This book is a wonderful, entertaining read and different from other paranormal books on the market, definitely not another Twilight fanfic. Men and women alike will enjoy this read. If you think you’d take pleasure in a fast paced rump in the afterlife with witty and humorous characters, then give this book a try.
