The Sheol (The Wanderer Trilogy #1)
by Mia Hoddell
Published April 4, 2012
119 pages

Being a trained killer, Kala can handle most things the world throws at her. However, when she murders her fiancé, Kala's life is thrown into chaos. Forced to leave everything behind, she runs from city to city, in fear of her psychotic boss who is seeking her death.

If that wasn't enough, she also has to cope with the re-appearance of her dead fiancé who is struggling to keep a hold on his sanity as he strives for revenge. 

The Sheol (The Wanderer Trilogy #1) surprised me! I didn't really know what to expect, even though it sounded really entertaining! The Sheol is about this girl Kala who has been trained to murder people and brought up this way by the Company since she was four. She is so deep into this, that she even kills her fiancé, who she never thought she'd see again. It turns out, by some weird supernatural power, he's back!

I thought the idea was original, and like nothing that I've read in a book! I liked it because it was so fresh and new and broke away from the cliché stories of YA that seem to be going around -- especially with the supernatural elements! I loved Kala, and even though I got mad at her a bit, she was really strong for all she's been through and she still keeps that calm facade. 

The book was so interesting and entertaining! It was a good quick read, and I can't wait to read the rest of the series, the second of which I believe to be out now! The only thing that hindered it from reaching it's full potential is there were a lot of grammatical, and spelling mistakes that kind of distracted from the story at first. It kind of had the feeling that it needed to go through the editor one more time. However, I still immensely enjoyed it!

My rating: 3/5

  1. Just about to review this! I saw it on your blog and asked the author because of you :D
    Glad you liked it.
    I got mad at Kala a lot -__-

    1. Ah! That's awesome I'm glad you found it off of here. And same, I did too. She was cranky for most of the book and I had problems with her!
