At age sixteen, Vivienne Drake’s life completely changed in one devastating moment with the murder of her mother. Now at age thirty, she continues to struggle with the aftermath of that day and the nightmares that began to haunt her following it- nightmares where she is forced to watch the torture and murder of a new victim, all while she endures their pain and terror; prisoner to her own subconscious.

Her life becomes more complicated after meeting the mysterious Calum McCort and learning of a world she’d never imagined existed; a world of Daemonium, Guardians, Lucifer, and The Guild. Not to mention Aedan, Lord of the Daemonium who’s on a mission to abduct her.

Now she’s running from demons she never knew she had, hiding from demons she never knew existed, and searching for the answers to her mother’s past to find the key to her future.

“Evangeline had prayed Spiro would be able to protect Vivienne, prayed that he’d keep her safe. The truth was, no one would be able to protect her from what was coming, and Evangeline knew that now. She knew that Vivienne was going to have to fight if she wanted to survive.”

Aedan, Lord of the Daemonium, has claimed Vivienne Drake as his prize and will stop at nothing to keep her. As his captive, Vivienne is forced to spend her days interacting with the monster that’s haunted her dreams for the past fourteen years.

Truths of her mother’s past continue to surface, bringing to light the reality of who Vivienne Drake truly is. All the while, Vivienne can do nothing but watch as the fa├žade of the carefully constructed life her mother fashioned crumbles around her; leaving devastation in its wake.

Will secrets and lies be her ruination, or can Vivienne overcome her pain in order to become the salvation The Guild and Humanity needs?

I was quite a bit surprised by Deep Into the Soul, but very pleasantly so. Reading the synopsis, I was expecting a YA read featuring a teenage protagonist, but I was waaaaaayyy off. Our protagonist is a thirty-year-old woman who is constantly tormented by nightmares, and discovers something in her world that she never expected: the supernatural.

First off, a quick warning. Deep Into the Soul is a very refreshing break from my typical YA reads, since it features an older protagonist and some elements that you wouldn't find in YA. On the other hand, it does have quite a bit of mature language and profanity. Personally, I don't mind the swearing, and even welcome it a little bit since it creates a contrast with my usual reads, but it probably wouldn't be very suitable for younger readers.
