Blog Tour Review Post: Oldsoul By: Dan Haring

Goodreads Summary:

Jason Gouvas doesn’t want to believe he has special abilities or that he's an Oldsoul-- a vessel for the souls of people who have passed away, but the dead girl in his mind can be very persuasive. 

Her name is Erin, and through her Jason is able to access the knowledge and skills of the souls within him. And with a group of power-hungry immortals bent on destroying the Oldsouls and overthrowing humanity, he's going to need them all.

My Review:

ReadingNook Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Oldsoul was unlike anything else i've read, which made me want to read it as soon as I read the premise for it. This book had a bit of a slow start for me, but I think it was due to trying to get the basics of the storyline across in a way that was understandable to the reader. I loved the characters in the book, and by far my favorites were Erin and Solon. They both were strong and well-developed characters and I enjoyed the roles they played in the story. The action-packed events made me want to keep reading, and was a fast read for me because I wanted to know what happened to Jason.

The only problem I had with the story was Jason and Melas' relationship. Right from the get-go Mela read like an older character, for some reason I pictured her in her fourties, and Jason is just a teenager. I obviously misinterpreted her character because she's not that old, but I couldn't really feel connected to their relationship because I felt it was under-developed, and just wasn't feeling it at all.

Overall, I really enjoyed OldSoul and liked Dan Haring's writing style. Its a strong debut for sure, and look forward to reading more from him in the future. I'm not sure if this book was intended to be a series or not, but I definitely think he can expand on this story and make something great!
