Redheads Are Soulless review

Redheads are SoullessRedheads are Soulless by Heather M. White
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Redheads are Soulless is a new kind of paranormal romance by Heather M. White. The main character, Sofia leads a difficult life but tries to make the best of things. She has dreams of finishing school so she can flee the small town she lives in where everyone judges her. She longs to make a new life for herself.

When Sofia is a child, she witnesses her father become possessed and die. Following his death, her mother turns to alcohol and pain pills to cope. Kids at school are ruthless in their mean treatment of Sofia. They make fun of her for being poor and for having an alcoholic mother.

Sofia has no friends until a new student, Jason, takes an interest in her. Just as Sofia and Jason are beginning to develop a relationship, Jason’s twin brother, Robbie, arrives on the scene threatening to kill Sofia. When the three of them move in together things get interesting.

Heather M. White’s writing is easy to read and fast paced. The characters in Redhead’s are Soulless are pretty well developed. The plot line contains several twists and surprises and moves along at the right pace. My only complaint with the story is that while we know that Jason, Sophia and Robbie aren’t human, and their unique races are labeled, the book never really explains what these races are and what they do. We see some of Sophia’s powers, but never really get the 411 on what exactly Sophia is. The epilogue hints at a sequel, so hopefully the paranormal nature of Sophia and the twins will be expanded upon.

Overall, the book was an interesting and fun story. It’s well worth the read and I’ll be awaiting the sequel.
