Review: A Soul For Trouble by Crista McHugh

A Soul For Trouble (Soulbearer, #1)
Cover Source:
Title: A Soul For Trouble
Author: Crista McHugh
Series: The Soulbearer Trilogy #1
Version Reviewed: Finished Copy, Paperback

GoodReads Summary:
When you’re a witch named Trouble, chaos follows.
Arden Lesstymine (known to everyone as Trouble) likes attention as much as the next girl, but this is getting ridiculous. When an insane stranger is murdered at the inn where she works, Trouble becomes the next Soulbearer for the disembodied god of chaos, Loku. Yes, it comes with the ability to channel the god’s limitless power, but at the cost of her sanity — literally. Now she has a sexy but cynical knight claiming to be her protector, a prince trying to seduce her to his cause (and his bed), and a snarky chaos god who offers a play-by-play commentary on it all, whether she wants to hear it or not. To make matters worse, a necromancer wants to capture the soul of Loku for his own dark purposes, and the only way he can get it is by killing her first.
A Soul For Trouble is the story of a witch named Arden (Trouble) that becomes the new Soulbearer. Her body becomes the home of Loku, the god of chaos.
I was excited when Crista McHugh asked if we could read and review the book for Starcrossed, so I accepted as soon as I could.
I really enjoyed this book. It took me a while to finish it, but definitely not because it was boring. A Soul For Trouble is filled with action and is very well written. The characters were great and the story was very enjoyable. Fantasy usually isn’t my selected genre, but Crista McHugh is a great author and I cannot wait to read more from her in the future.
The second book in The Soulbearer Trilogy comes out in December 2012 and I’m excited to see what comes next!

Favorite Character:  Cinder and Dev.
Rating: 4 Stars.
