Rezension zu "The Soul Catcher" von Rowanne S Carberry

Quite a disappointing read
Artemis_25vor 2 Jahren

Ok, this is how I would describe my reading experience with "The Soul Catcher. The story certainly has the potential to be something more than it appears to be now because I really liked the main character, Jemma, and her ability to see another person's death just by touching them, thus making her invaluable for the investigation, the search for the murderer. Even preventing the person's deadly fate is possible for her. The mystery around the culprit, the killer who is taking the souls of his victims, that's also something that could have been exciting to solve alongside the investigators, but sadly there wasn't too much to solve in the first place, just experiencing some of his killings until, rather conveniently in my opinion, he discovers Jemma watching him and sets a meeting place where he is getting rid of surprisingly fast for a "big final showdown". So, it was all pretty disappointing for someone who loves to get behind mysteries doing a lot of speculating on the way.
Except for Jemma, the other characters seem to be very flat. I wish I got to know them on a much deeper level than they are presented here because then I would have understood some of their behaviour better, especially Detective Mitchell's cruel handeling of those that work under him appears very one-dimensional, lacking the reasons for why he is behaving in that certain way.
The lovestory is very sweet although developing a bit too quickly for my taste.

All in all, the story could have done with a lot more depth both plot- and characterwise. It's not a total catastrophe but still far from the exciting read I was expecting beforehand. The end suggests there might come out a sequel. I'm not sure if I want to read it. Probably not.
