This prequel was a short, yet satisfying read. After reading this prequel, I am very excited to start reading the Black Warriors series. I thought the concept of gatekeepers and the other paranormal creatures in this prequel were quite interesting. It was unlike anything I have ever read before. The story took place in Africa and had African mythology, which was really intriguing. This novel had action, mystery and romance all in one short story. M'na and Tara fell in love quickly, which I typically hate, but in this prequel, it made sense. There was a reason they fell in love so quickly based on the storyline, and another reason would be the fact that this was a short novel. Even though this was a short prequel, the author was able to insert some scenes of steamy passion between Tara and M'na.
"His lips descended on hers for the second time that night. This time, the sensations were not a blur. She felt him in every pore of her body, soaking in his aura, her body and mind overwhelmed by exciting sensations."
Black Soul kept me entertained and glued to my kindle. The characters and storyline were not as developed as I usually like, but for a short story, it was a fun read. I would recommend this prequel to paranormal romance lovers.
