Soul Mates: Scent is about a guy leaving a simple life, Max Fergus. One day, he met a woman, Anna, who seemed to captivate him despite knowing her for only a day. It turned out that Max is not the person he thinks he is. The only way to get the answers to his questions lies with Anna and family secrets his mom and dad had kept from everyone.

When I read this book. I couldn’t put it down. I love the characters. In fact, I picked this book because I love soul mate stories. The book surprised me because of the characters and their world. It is clever writing. The plots and twists are unpredictable and that’s the kind of stories that entertained me the most.

Strengths:
Vivid Images – Elizabeth Lance wrote the story as if it’s happening in front of me. I love the magical kingdom of the Fae, the possibilities in the Fae world, time controlling I wish I could have that, and the flashing.

Characterization – The characters are realistic and not forced, especially the relationship between Anna and Max. I also love their connection Tony is a great character as well. I love Max’s crew who helped them fight the antagonist. Their varieties really helped the story. The characters are new to me. This is the first time I read characters about them. The world they’re moving in to is so flexible. I say that because Anna and Max are different and similar from each other. I also love how the supporting character are not like fodders or feelers in the story. They have their own personality and uniqueness.

Family Issues – At first, I thought that the family won’t play a role on the book, but I was wrong. I love that the conflicts and misunderstandings in the past were resolved and how it somehow foreshadowed the next book.

Weakness:
Builds a little slow – The build up was a little slow for me but it made me like I can’t wait for the climax of the story to happen.

Soul mates – I love soul mates and I’ve been studying them for years. I understand well the dynamics of a relationship like that. It’s a little too perfect for me like they hardly had any conflict on the book, they got along the whole time.

Anna – I love her personality and how she’s never out of character. I love her speaking French too, but her lines should have been translated.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a book with adventure, action, fantasy, and romance, I recommend you all to read this book. It will bring you to a different and you wouldn’t want it to end. It also gives us some idea to the unending conflict between the Fae and the Unseelie. It got me excited to read the next book. I just wish I got to read the first book but of course, you can still enjoy the book without reading the first.
