When sixteen-year-old Riley is injured in a car crash and sees a girl stealing a boy’s soul, she’s convinced she’s hallucinating. But when she sees the same girl at the hospital later, she knows she wasn’t dreaming. That’s when Riley learns her secret heritage and who she really is: a halfling Angel of Death.

Riley must come to terms with her new reality and supernatural abilities, but before she can do this, girls her age start dying in mysterious circumstances. It’s up to Riley to figure out why, what the innocent victims have in common, and what she can do to stop them.


 Riley finds out that she is a Halfling and isn’t particularly thrilled about it, finding out your whole life is a lie can do that. Add in a hot guardian named Leander and things look a little brighter but Leander is a bit of a jerk at times. Girls are dying and Riley means to find out why, join her in her search to do right.
 I enjoyed this book, although Leander sets my teeth on edge sometimes. He is just so wishy washy it gets frustrating…to me. The book was well written and rolled along well, keeping your attention and making you want to know more. I would recommend it to paranormal lovers, it is a good story. My thanks to the author for making her book available to me to read and review, I am definitely watching her for more. The Soul Thief gets four stars from me.

Majanka Verstraete begged her Mom to teach her how to read while she was still in kindergarten. By the time she finished fifth grade, she had read through the entire children’s section of her hometown library.

She wrote her first story when she was seven years old, and hasn’t stopped writing since. With an imagination that never sleeps, and hundreds of possible book characters screaming for her attention, writing is more than a passion for her.

She writes about all things supernatural for children of all ages. She’s tried to write contemporary novels before, but something paranormal always manages to crawl in.

Majanka is currently studying for her Master of Laws degree, and hopes one day to be able to combine her passions for law and writing. When she’s not writing, reading or studying, she likes watching “The Vampire Diaries” and “Game of Thrones,” spending time with her friends, or playing “World of Warcraft.”
