Savannah Miller wants nothing more than to live a quiet and peaceful life. Living on the outskirts of town, she’s content with keeping to herself. After all, she’s quite different from the rest of the town’s residents.

A natural-born witch, she’s done everything possible to maintain her lone existence. Granted, she’s still nursing the pain and heartache of losing her mother under unexpected circumstances. In the blink of an eye, however, things soon change. It’s now up to her to make sense of the trouble that’s landed on her doorstep.

All The Dead Souls has quite a promising premise. We’re introduced to Savannah, catching glimpses of the people she interacts with every day. Savannah is the type of her person who’s content with keeping to herself. She’s been through so much that she’d rather remain in the shadows. She also often wishes that she had nothing to do with the power coursing through her veins. Power gifted to her from the mother she lost not too long ago.

Kali Rose has crafted quite an interesting world. The characters are complex. The things they go through every day even more so. While I did enjoy the premise of this book, I found myself shying away from the main character. Savannah isn’t a likable person. She does everything in her power to push away those who try to befriend her, even her own friends. I’m honestly surprised her friends didn’t get upset with her for brushing them away so much.

Overall, this is a story that does pique interest. If you can get past Savannah’s constant aloofness, of course. I do hope Savannah lets up in the next book. We’ll see soon enough, I’m sure.


Book One in the Dead Souls series!

When a vampire moves into town, a monster intent on revenge on his heels, a reluctant witch is forced to come to terms with her present power and her muddled past.

Savannah Miller lives a quiet life, and she likes it that way: A witch who can speak to the dead has no need for additional thrills. But when a vampire named Damon moves into Greystone, right next door no less, things start to get…complicated.

  • A bloodthirsty monster seeks vengeance and catches Savannah in her crosshairs
  • Dark family secrets begin to rear their bloodstained heads
  • The local priest turns out to be keeping more secrets than just the confessions of his congregation
  • An ex-shapeshifter lover demands answers to questions that shouldn’t be asked

…and that’s just the start.

To deal with her horrific past, open herself up to feeling, and harness the power that’s been passed down her family line, Savannah is forced to take on the biggest obstacle in her life: Herself.
