Leakes' Good vs. Evil Tale Is Great Read: Review of Kai Leakes' Sin Eaters

[Click cover to order Sin Eaters today!]

Khamun Cross was born to do one thing and that was to watch Sanna Steele, a woman so unique and special he would risk his all to have her. So what, that in his job of watching her, he happens to prowl the streets, hunting the very things that go bump in the night. Even monsters or everyday looking people that steal humans' souls become Khamun's victims, and he brings with him a power, a vampirism, that would send one straight to the dark.

Khamun craves the darkness in his victims as if it were his own personal dinner, but not as much as he craves the very woman he has been ordained to watch over as her Guardian Angel. Sanna Steele is just your average twenty-seven year old, with your everyday hopes, dreams and insecurities. She is clueless about the war that is secretly raging around her in the streets of St. Louis. A war she will soon become a part of. But what is so special about Sanna that the very things that go bump in the night, seeks to snatch her from her very existence in life?

Leakes' Good vs. Evil Tale Is Great Read

A good beginning, complex and engaging characters, and driving plot can woo me... hard. Leakes' good vs. evil tale, SIN EATERS, has all of these components and others, such as some rockin' action. Good vs. evil tales are classic. It's easy to try to write one, but it can be difficult to make the story unique. Leakes doesn't have this problem. Her ability to describe place and atmosphere helps to make this tale her own. Her characters' quirks, conflicts, and actions, again, help to differentiate her from the pack. Leakes' entry into urban paranormal (supernatural thriller added onto that genre title) is a success for me. I look forward to seeing how she further develops and deepens her characters' histories and the world and situations in which they must do battle. For those that love action, paranormal, and fantasy, even thrillers, this is definitely a book to pick up and read. For those that are not... give it a try. You might be surprised.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
