Death May Be The End...
But Love Doesn't Give A @&%#.

Jace Camden is haunted by his past. One that has many believing he got away with murder. He's run from it, trying to start a new life in a new town. But his past hasn't let him escape and it's determined that his future will not be a long one. 
Death will demand it's due. 
And his late wife will make sure that debt is paid.
Kitt Thomas' life is in a rut but that changed when she looked into the sad, haunted eyes of Jace Camden. Something about his wounded soul called to her--like a flicker in a very dark cave she should have had the sense not to step into.
But his past will make sure she is no more part of Jace's future than life is. 
Because he's soul bound. 
And that's a bind that can only be broken by death.

It's about surviving the read.

 About the Narrator

Eddie was born and raised in California. At a young age, he loved to create cartoon-like caricature voices and perform them to anyone who would listen. His friends and family told him he should be in the voice-over industry when he grew up.

He currently works at Oceaneering International near Baltimore, creating software control systems for both remotely-operated and autonomous underwater vehicles.

His dream of being a voice actor was forgotten until recently he came across a friend who is a narrator for Audible. The possibility of being in the voice-over industry was rekindled, and after harassing his friend incessantly on the details of becoming an Audible narrator, you find Eddie's story here today.

List your Top Fast 5…

1. I relate with Jace on a very personal level with regards personal loss.  His tragedy really spoke to me.

2. I lived in a haunted house for 8 years, and have had many paranormal experiences.

3. I fully believe in an afterlife.  I don’t believe your “soul” just disappears, so books that creatively deal with this topic fully interest me.

4. The name Edward means “Guardian” and I have always felt that my calling in life was to be a protector of sorts.  At one point I was a hair-breadth away from a career change and joining the local police academy.  I only stopped when I realized that the salary difference would not support my wife and kids.  So Jace feeling he had to protect his friends and loved ones was something I could embrace..

5. I really enjoy narrating romances, and hope this is a genre I can excel at.

Rated R

"Death may be final, but love doesn't give a shit."

What a way to open a story. From the first few minutes, it's obvious Jace's story isn't a happy one, and is most likely going to be a bit of a wild ride. Even with the synopsis and tour info, I wasn't prepared for this story. I don't mind unhappy endings, but this was so much more than that. The entire story has a level of suspense, and getting to see into the reality Jace hides from the world is incredible. He's living a nightmare only he can see.

I love the concept of bringing a more tangible after-life existence into a story, and having it meld with the living. I'm a sucker for these kinds of stories, and this one was exceptional. The hopelessness Jace deals with in simply being labeled with a mental disorder was tragically realistic. In a way, it forces you to ask the question of how "fiction" this kind of story is - are there people out there dealing with this sort of terror every day?

For any fan of paranormal tragedies, this one is a must read or listen. The book, I'm sure, is fantastic, and the audiobook was superb. Eddie did a fantastic job of expressing the life Jace was living, as well as all the other characters who ended up tangled in his sticky web. My only complaint was the few adult scenes, which I don't personally care for - the rest was fantastic. It's a story that will get your adrenaline pumping, make you want to fight alongside Jace, and give you another reason to wonder if things that go bump in the night, aren't just inside your head.

*I was given a complimentary audiobook copy of this story, from the author, to listen to in exchange for an honest review.

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!
