Soul Stealer (The Anomaly Trilogy #3)
by Anna Hackett
She just wants her life back. After being kidnapped and forced to kill by a vicious crime lord, Cate Hartmann is now a killer with an addiction to stealing souls. On the island sanctuary of Haven, surrounded by other anomalies with secret abilities, she fights to recover. But only one man calms the dark storm inside and makes her believe she can be whole again…Dr. Gage Walker.
Scientist Gage Walker has spent a decade helping anomalies. But every day, he’s haunted by his previous job for the CIA—where he crossed far too many boundaries and hurt so many anomalies. Including his brother. He vows he won’t fail again and will do everything he can to heal Cate—including fighting his attraction to her.
But when the crime lord comes after Cate again, it’s a race against time to find out why he wants her. Amidst the danger, Gage and Cate drawn to each other, even as they fear that one wrong step will send her hurtling back into the depths of her soul stealing addiction.
Cate Hartmann wants her to get her old life back after being kidnapped by a crime lord. That is impossible because during her capture she was made to kill people with her ability to steal souls. Now she is addicted to it and just wants to give up. She is on an island sanctuary called Haven for people with special abilities. Even tho she is attracted to Dr. Gage Walker she still doesn't trust herself around other. Gage spends his life helping people like Cate because it is what he loves and because he feels he has a lot to make up for. His past isn't perfect either. He knows Cate can push thru and become what she used to be he just has to keep her safe and get her to believe. When Cate's kidnapper tries to recapture her, she and Gage come together and she may just have to kill again even when she doesn't want to.
Cate has been torn from what she knows and tortured. She truly is a strong woman she fights her addiction to kill people every day and would rather be alone the rest of her life than to do something harmful to those she loves. She shows tremendous courage. Gage I just love. He is smart, protective and sexy with a nerdy twist. I won't think of lab coats the same again. He also has a bad past he feels guilty about and has to overcome. These two seem perfect for each other in ways that they can help each other and have good chemistry.
This is the 3rd and final book in the Anomaly Trilogy. I have not got to read the others yet but I plan to soon. This book is a quick read but has so much going on. I wasn't lost not having read the other books first. I would recommend reading the first two simply because if they are as good as this one they are a must read. This book has people with different powers. I enjoyed reading about all the different ones people had. You gt a kinda look into what the first two books hold. There is action as the crime lord Cate escaped from comes looking for her to turn her into the perfect weapon. They have to fight to keep her free and Gage is not going to let her go easy. It also shows the struggle both Gage and Cate battle everyday with their guilty feelings. They help each other overcome them and grow closer from it. I love this book and think any paranormal lover or anyone just looking for a fantastic read will as well.
