A Valkyrie and a Vampire battle together for the fate of the world in Book 1 of The Soul Wars, a stunning new fantasy series!

Kara, a Norse Valkyrie warrior, and Gaspard, a centuries-old vampire, find themselves in an improbable alliance to prevent the Soul Wars, an epic battle between vampires with souls and those without, which a real god swears could shake the very foundations of the Earth. Can Kara and Gaspard set aside their natural enmity, or stranger yet, nurture their unexpected feelings for one another while fighting for their lives?

In Souls Collide, Book 1 of The Soul Wars - Things thought long dead reappear, forcing Kara, Gaspard and their paranormally sensitive neighbor Adelaide, to work together to put them to rest forever, or at least, for now. Kara and Gaspard’s growing attraction forces Kara to reconsider her feelings about vampires and her belief that they are soulless monsters.

The Soul Wars novella series is a new series of short novels, similar to BookShots. Souls Collide is the first in the series by urban fantasy author J.D. Blackrose.

Gaspard is a very old vampire who is protected by Kara, a Valkyrie who is on loan to him. Gaspard wants to help his elderly neighbor, Adelaide, who unknown to her is somewhat of a distant relative to him. Adelaide, is a tough, spunky, 80-year old lady who is sensitive to ghosts. She wants to preserve her family’s history even though in the past they were slave owners who were horrible to their slaves.

This novella is the first of four by urban fantasy author J.D Blackrose, and is an easy read. Even though the novella was short it was well written and developed. I enjoyed the story so much I wished it would have been longer. I look forward to reading the next books in the series.
