Book 3 of the stunning new fantasy series The Soul Wars takes the story back in time before the stunning conclusion in Book 4!.

The story goes back in time to World War II Paris, 1944, to learn what made Gaspard leave Europe and head for the United States. Vampires, demons, Nazis, and Gaspard’s first love intertwine in a fast-paced story that explains why some vampires have souls and some don’t. In the end, Gaspard finds himself sharing drinks with a major player in the game and starts to wonder how much of his life has been manipulated by powers larger than he is.

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

Book 3 takes you back to 1944 during World War II in Paris. Here you learn the story of what made Gaspard leave Europe and move to the United States in preparation for the conclusion of Soul Wars in Book 4.

Gaspard is one of the few vampires with a soul, and because of this, he cares about humanity. He approaches Arnaud, the Master of Paris and implores him to not allow the Nazis to continue destroying Paris and the Jewish people. Arnaud, who is not to be bothered by such pettiness declines Gaspard’s wishes and warns him to stay out of the war.

Blackrose has a flowing writing style that makes her novellas a quick and easy read without compromising the integrity of the story.
