Soul Thief (Realms Of Our Own)
The Guru's Review:
I especially loved this short as it has two of my favourite characters, Molon and Indal as main characters working together as a team of detectives. They work well together and seem to compliment each other. They make quite the detective team. Interestingly, David G. Johnson, the author of Time for Change (Realms of Our Own), one of the other instalments, also depicted Molon team up with another character, Karyn, and they worked together well too in that short.
I am really taken with the plot and I can see the potential for more episodes of Molon and Indal and their detective agency solving crimes, even those of the supernatural nature. As I have said about the other shorts, this would work well as a full length novel. I am encouraged that Carroll states at the end of the story that the original story of Indal can be found in Storm Chase (The Spacetime Legacy Book 1), of her Spacetime Legacy and continues in Chronocrime (The Spacetime Legacy Book 2) which is a young adult fantasy series.
This is the first I have read of Carroll's works and she writes well. The plot of this one flows smoothly with the investigation of clues in logical order leading to a very satisfying ending.
