This novella serves as a stepping stone into the Soul Savers series as it enters a whole new era. You don’t need to have read the previous books to understand and enjoy this one.
As matriarch of Earth’s Angels, Alexis Knight is charged with leading the world to recover and rebuild after being ravaged by human and supernatural wars. So far, the challenge hasn’t been too difficult as most of Earth’s inhabitants remain in underground bunkers. Alexis’s own community, The Loft, is in trouble. Their water source is drying up, so she and her elite team go to the surface to find a new one. But in a surprise attack by a new kind of legendary creature, Alexis loses her memory of who and what she is.
While her team scrambles to find the antidote to the black magic affecting her mind, Alexis makes new plans of her own. Until her memory returns, though, her abilities as a leader are questioned, especially when an outside group arrives to initiate a coup against her and her team.

I’m not going to lie. This is, in some ways, quite a frustrating book. Alexis, who has, in other books, been kick ass, is a bit … fragile in this book. And that detrimentally impacts all her relationships.
But,the author has cleverly worked this novella into a short,sharp shot in the arm of the Soul Savers series to usher in the new plotlines. And although I have read some of the previous books, I haven’t read all of them. I didn’t feel lost though, and whilst it is true that there are a number of questions raised within this story, I have every confidence that they will be answered in subsequent books.
I’m also happy to report that although this is a novella, the story wasn’t adversely impacted by its length.
Short, but very, very sweet.
