Description: Life after Life
Now Maggie has been given the chance of her after-life to become a Guard, nothing will stand in her way. Not even the undeniable attraction she feels for her trainer and past love—Jackson. But when the battle between Shadowed and Guard begins again which side will she choose?
When her boss, Felix, partners Jackson and Maggie up with Ally and Cooper to investigate terrifying Shadowed activity, she doesn’t think it could get any worse. Jackson and Cooper barely tolerate each other and this time, Maggie isn’t just proving her loyalty to the Guard during one mission...she has a side mission too. One so secret and so dangerous she can’t tell a soul...
A guest post about all the paranormal aspects to your story/series (i.e., like the rules to your story when it comes to Soul Collectors or how someone is Soul Possessed and/or any other paranormal aspects. Maybe even write how you came up with these aspects.)
This is a great topic! I hope to keep it somewhat spoiler free for those new to the series so I won’t go into too much detail about Soul Possessed but I would like to talk about Soul Collectors and the Guard. My souls are transported to the After when their human life is over. Souls are chosen and offered a job and they can either take the job or opt to be Recycled, in which they are sent back the Living Realm and into a new life.
Soul Collectors have a very important job. They safely transport the soul from the Living Realm to the After. They are able to walk the Living Realm in their non-corporeal (AKA invisible) soul form during their missions. And while they can’t interact with anyone, they can transport anywhere they want which is a great perk! Soul Taken starts with Maggie as a Soul Collector. She has been a Collector for over a century but she has her eye on a bigger prize, which is to be a part of the elite Guard.
It is tough to move up from a Soul Collector to a Guard but Maggie has a fantastic Collecting record, which she is sure to get her there. The Guard are a group of souls who are trained to go on top secret missions for the Caeleste (the After Realm beings) in the great effort of protecting human souls from the Shadowed (more on them in Soul Possessed!). The Guard have slightly different abilities. For instance they can appear corporeal (seen) or non-corporeal on the Living Realm. And they have a kick-butt weapon, it looks like a broadsword but it is a very light and graceful tool.
I hope you enjoy the world I created and I do appreciate Magical Urban Fantasy Reads for hosting my tour today!
The Life After #1
After-life just got a lot more complicated
Maggie is a Soul Collector. It’s her job to transport souls from the Living Realm to the After – but during a mission to find a stolen soul, she ends up stuck in a teen mean girl’s body.
Trapped, Maggie’s soul is catapulted into Ally’s life – and the human world she hasn’t experienced for one hundred years. But, as a descendant of the most powerful beings in the After, Maggie must rescue Ally before the girl’s soul dies…
To survive, Maggie must uncover devastating secrets – because with one soul taken by a terrifying enemy, Maggie’s could be next!
