A Soul Reclaimed
Shayna Grissom
Publication date: April 1st 2019
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Hell is divided into seven regions. The first region is designated for the purest of souls, the seventh is for the evilest. There was once a king of Hell, but the steward family has ruled for centuries.
Nora, the stepdaughter of the steward is undone when her mother and step-father take away her beloved tutor, Peter. When Nora confronts the steward and her mother, the discussion is heated and ends with the steward in inexplicable pain.
Shortly after, Nora finds herself in the Starry Wood. Peter told her of the perils within the forest, and it’s not long before the inhabitants of the wood find her.
A giant hunter named Aegis comes to Nora’s aid. He is drawn to Nora, compelled to protect her from the steward’s assassins, the giants, and the evil souls who escape the seventh region.
Together, they travel the seven layers of Hell to discover why the steward is so threatened by a teenage girl.

My Review

This is the first book by this author. I have to say that it was very well written, for a first book. She lives in the kingdom of hell with her mother and step father. She does not fit in as well, she is different. Peter is sent away. Then she wakes up, drugged into the starry forest. 
Then she meets Aegis and he vowed to do whatever to save here. She doesnt understand what's going on. Why her step father hates her? Why she was never loved? What is with the voice in her head.
The traveling through all the realms is pretty cool. I liked how she explained them all. Enough so you understand, but not to much where you are wishing it was over.
I loled how each chapter told you whose point of view it was from, but I didnt like how the flash backs were done. I usually couldnt tell if it was a flashback or just the story.
It takes a little to get into the story. But I'm glad I stayed with it. Like any main character, she had her moments of annoyance. A great debut novel.
