Reader's Nook Boor Review: Slippery Souls


Slippery Souls is a unique take on the afterlife or life in purgatory. Libby dies and ends up in Sunray Bay aka purgatory because she is abnormal. I won't go too much into it because that would ruins things. There she meets a whole cast of weird characters and not all of them are human. From the moment she gets there you know its going to be really interesting for her. But she isn't alone as she has her buddy Rufus, her dog who also died when she did. She befriends ,sort of, Grim who is a Peace and Order Maintenance guy. They're the police of the afterlife, and they aren't always nice. Libby doesn't know what's up ahead and you don't either, but it doesn't ruin the story. Not knowing what's next keeps the momentum going and makes the story more enjoyable.

Rachel H Dixon writes very well and the story is really easy to follow. The characters and setting are well thought out, and you can really picture them in your mind. The great thing is this is the first book in the series, and believe me, you'll want to continue reading the story.
