About the Book: 

Kamai was warned never to open the black door, but she didn’t listen …

Everyone has a soul. Some are beautiful gardens, others are frightening dungeons. Soulwalkers―like Kamai and her mother―can journey into other people’s souls while they sleep.

But no matter where Kamai visits, she sees the black door. It follows her into every soul, and her mother has told her to never, ever open it.

When Kamai touches the door, it is warm and beating, like it has a pulse. When she puts her ear to it, she hears her own name whispered from the other side. And when tragedy strikes, Kamai does the unthinkable: she opens the door.

A.M. Strickland’s imaginative dark fantasy features court intrigue and romance, a main character coming to terms with her asexuality, and twists and turns as a seductive mystery unfolds that endangers not just Kamai’s own soul, but the entire kingdom

My Review:

I love the fact that Kamia is an asexual character, my first ever read like this! Yet there was still romance within the story and the overall feeling of seductive story-telling throughout.

For fans of Dark Fantasy, this will be an intriguing story to spend some time with. The concept of being able to walk through someone’s soul and ferret out their secrets, determine who they are at their core, without them ever knowing, is both exhilarating and horrifying!

There are also several underlying mysteries within this story, so there isn’t a boring moment to be had.
Overall, a very different type of adventure/fantasy which is well worth the time!
