Rogue Soul is Linsey Hall’s third book in the Mythean Arcana paranormal romance series.
If you love gods and demigods, then you’ll want to read this book.
The story had quite a bit of chopping and changing.
Chapters often took the reader into the past, then back into the present, and then back into the past again.
Overall, it was an enjoyable read, and Cam and Ana enjoyed getting to know each other.
earth and Otherworld
I found this quite confusing. I think the basis of Otherworld is that it is the equivalent of the home of the gods. Not quite like heaven, but a heavenly realm.
I haven’t read the first two books, so it is quite possible you’ll need to read those to fully understand this.
At first, when I came upon the word ‘earth’, I had to stop. I couldn’t concentrate. It drove me crazy that the author perpetually refused to capitalize the e.
Of course, that’s not going to worry many readers, but for me, I couldn’t concentrate.
Every time the word earth appeared, I found myself grunting at the audacity of this lowercase e staring up at me.
I guess that is an overreaction.
I think the author’s meaning is that she wants to distinguish earth as a mortal realm, in respect of Otherworld.
But in most cases, she was referring to Earth as in the place and the planet, often referring to places on Earth.
But after I realized that no one is going to worry about this lowercase e, I settled.
the goddess who doesn’t want to be a goddess
Ana no longer thinks being the Goddess of Victory and War is a good thing. I could kind of see why. It would be damn boring. But then, after a while, I found myself thinking why would you want to give up the powers of a goddess.
But she does. She hates Otherworld.
So she travels to earth to find the scum who made her a goddess in the first place, locking her in Otherworld.
The demigod who traded places with Ana and doesn’t regret it
Camulos or Cam for short, was originally the God of War, but he traded places with Ana, and she got stuck with the role instead.
He’s been enjoying himself on earth, and when the two of them meet up again, it gets a little hairy.
But of course, the two find their groove eventually when they embark on an adventure to find Camulos’ amulet.
There are some cool sex scenes scattered through the novel, but for the most part, action scenes outweigh the romance scenes, which is a shame.
Overall though, I mostly enjoyed this one. I give it 3.5 stars. A good read. Not my favorite, but a good read.
