Stolen Soul

Stolen Soul
In the Beginning. . .
by S.R. McDaniel

This book is sort of a modern day adaptation of the life of Saul turned Paul from the Bible. It tells the story of a serial killer who has a road to Damascus experience right before he's caught after killing over 50 people. The story also includes his history and why he became a person that could murder innocent people.
The author uses telepathy, Christianity, witchcraft and psychology and mixes them all together to make a fascinating and yet very confusing story.
I felt that the author was trying to point out that God can save you no matter where you are in life. But the point was somehow lost at times in the many turns of the story.
The story jumps around so much that it's very hard to follow. The descriptions are lengthy and often completely unnecessary to the storyline. Once I got into the 5th or 6th chapter I enjoyed the story, but was still left confused several times by the changes in events or the descriptions.
The author wrapped everything up very neatly for those that don't like lose ends to their stories. But I felt that the story would have flowed better if most of the descriptions and some of the back stories had been left out.

I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
