Book Blurb:
When Zanna Seoul accidentally causes the death of a fellow spirit guide’s charge while trying to save the life of the man she loves, she is stripped of her position and banished to Earth to die. In the spirit world, one doesn’t mess with what’s written. With Zanna no longer guiding him and his memory of her erased, Owen Nash is left wide open as the target of the vengeful spirit guide who feels he’s been wronged. A guide who also happens to be a werewolf. Once on Earth, Zanna refuses to stand by and watch Owen die, so she intervenes again, setting off a chain of events that could mean death for all of them if she doesn’t go back and undo the mess she’s made. Can Zanna succeed before the werewolf does?

Review: It is often hard to create a story with good character development and resolution in just 57 pages, but Kim Bowman does just that with Wayward Soul.

This story jumps into action with the first word and it really doesn't stop until you've reached the last word. The plot is a different twist on the paranormal. Zanna is a spirit guide. Owen is a mortal enforcement officer. Jakob is a werewolf and also a sort of spirit guide.

Think that might make things confusing?

Not really.

What this short story does is show the consequences of actions. It also deals with "free will."

Both Zanna and Owen have to make choices that will alter the course of their worlds. Only Zanna's choices are far reaching when Jakob seeks to right her wrongs.

This story actually has a spiritual feel to it. Good v/s Evil and all that, but if you aren't paying attention, it is easy to miss, and Wayward Soul will just be a quick read.

I was really impressed at how well pulled together this story was, considering its short length. Everything was tied up nicely at the end, and it didn't feel hurried either. Kim Bowman is definitely an author I'll be reading more of.
