So I have picked up The Body Finder By Kimberly Derting and I chose to read it even though I’m reading My Soul To Steal and Damned but there are many reasons for it.
1. I’m ahead of the Soul Screamer Challenge so my pace can be slowed
2. Damned is a thick book with never-ending chapters, so it not a big deal when I finished
3. The Body Finder is 100% amazing! I have never been hit by a book like this . . . well maybe from Rachel Vincent’s Shifter series (maybe)
So what’s so special about the Body Finder? (Note it’s spoiler)
