Présentation de l'éditeur

*** 4 1/2 STARS from RT Book Reviews***

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.

4.5/5 review

When you are the only blonde-haired, blue-eyed person in town you know you are going to draw attention to yourself, not always good attention, but attention none the less. Add the ability to use magic into the mix and you know why you have the nickname Trouble. Arden works for her uncle at his inn, not by choice but by honor to the family, unfortunately Arden gets to serve the riff-raff at the inn that no one else wants to deal with. Who knew helping one old man would change her life forever? Shortly after helping an insane old man he is killed and Arden becomes the new Soulbearer of the chaos god Loku. This information is given to Arden after she woken outside the village by Devarius Tel'brien, Knight of Gravaria (Dev for short). Dev informs Arden that he is the sworn protector of the Soulbearer.

While Dev is trying to get Arden to Gravaria to give her the proper magical training, they have a few run-ins with the Necromancer. Arden chooses to ignore Dev and fight back, which is not a good thing to so, since using magic is punishable by death. Instead Arden ends up saving the Third prince Kell, who wishes to save Arden. Kell tries his hardest to woo Arden into his bed, which doesn't go exactly as he planned. Arden blows off almost every attempt Kell makes at her. During all of this Dev starts to show signs of jealousy, but he keeps shrugging off his feelings for Arden since he is her sworn protector.

I had a lot of fun reading this book, the characters are likable in their own ways but at times I wanted to reach in and smack Arden around a few times. I've wanted to yell at Dev for being such a stubborn jerk and Kell I wanted to give a good swift kick in the rear for just being Kell. Loku if it was possible I'd want to hang out with and talk to for a while, since he reminds me of a certain spirit that lives in a skull that hangs out with a wizard from Chicago. If you are looking for a fantasy book with a little romance, I suggest giving this one a chance and adding it to your library. I'm already looking forward to the next book A Soul for Chaos to come out at the end of the year. It will be interesting to see how life fairs for Arden and Dev once they are in Gravaria.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun Light Fantasy With Plenty of Action 12 mai 2012
Par Jess - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
With plenty of action, danger and interesting plot twists, I have to admit that despite the fact I don't normally care for love triangles, I read this book in a single sitting. Ms. McHugh has created a fascinating world full of magic, adventure, close calls, betrayals, and a fairly large mystery involving the heroine's own history. Throw in a sexy elf, a seductive prince, a snarky god of chaos, and even zombies, and how could I not like this?

While I'm not sure what the "technical" genre classification for this book would be, I personally would categorize it as Upper YA/New Adult Fantasy based on the low steam level and rather immature heroine. However, even as a reader of more "adult" romantic fantasy, I still thoroughly enjoyed this one, and am definitely looking forward to the rest of the trilogy.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 It was okay 30 août 2013

Personally I liked Loku. He sounds like my kind of guy... all bad boy, sarcastic, funny and knows how to have fun. I hope he does get out. Would love to see what he does once he's out.

As for the other characters, Dev is the strong and honorable type, Kell is okay and Trouble is just too typical.

Also I don't really like love triangles. The story has plenty of potential without the love triangle element. Come on now, you have zombies, an imprisoned God, and a magic fearing kingdom to work with so the love triangles got to go.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable Read 29 avril 2012

Format:Broché
Arden Lesstymine has lost everything that she cared about and was making her living as a bar-maid in the town of Wallus. Everyone called her "Trouble" because of her blond hair, blue eyes and that she was able to perform magic, which was outlawed in the village. One day a handsome man named Dev and his wolf, Cinder, came into her work following a mentally unstable old man and at that moment she never would have guessed that her life was about to change. The old man suddenly dies in front of her with a knife in his back and she becomes the new Soulbearer for the God of Chaos, Loku. Dev grabs Arden at this point and takes her out of the inn just as a necromancer with his undead army start to attack, trying to get the Soulbearer for himself.

When Arden wakes up, she learns that she is sharing her body with the infamous God of Chaos, who holds unlimited power and is being hunted by a necromancer. Dev must get her to Gravaria where she can start her training and be able to harness her power while protecting her from enemies at every turn. Along their journey they meet Prince Kell, who wants to enlist them to help with his cause as well as get Arden into his bed. She just wants her life to be normal but with two men vying for her attention, she just has to keep herself safe from the necromancer and being burned at the stake for witchcraft until she can reach her destination.

I really liked this book. I have to say that it started off a little bit slow but once Arden and Dev started their journey, it was fast-paced all the way until the end. I enjoyed Arden's character because she was such a strong person even though she had spent most of her life alone. She didn't let people get her down by calling her "Trouble" and was just looking to make the best of any situation. By meeting Dev, her whole life changed when she became the Soulbearer and gave her a purpose in life. She learned her magic could help people and be used to protect others instead of just being problematic for her.

Dev, on the other hand, has been protecting the Soulbearer for years, waiting his turn to be chosen as the next Soulbearer. He was shocked when Arden was chosen because she was the first woman and she was also a witch. He had conflicting feelings of being her protector but also wanting to be romantically involved with her as well. Then, Prince Kell comes into the picture, fighting for Arden's attention and Dev doesn't know if he should fight for her romantically or just stay as her protector.

I have never read anything by Crista McHugh before and I loved reading about the adventures of Arden and Dev. I can't wait to see where the story goes from here and I'm hoping that Dev fights for Arden's heart because he just seems to be perfect for her. I want to get my hands on "A Soul For Chaos" which is the second book in the trilogy that comes out in December and I'll try to be patient in waiting to see what happens next.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Soul for Trouble - Very enjoyable 11 février 2014
Par Michelle @ In Libris Veritas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
A Soul for Trouble is a book I originally thought of as a Young Adult fantasy novel which seemingly touts a love triangle and a unqiue magical angle of a trapped god. I was definitely wrong on one account, this is not a Young Adult novel but instead one that could be classified as New Adult. Age difference aside A Soul for Trouble is a promising start to a highly interesting and unique fantasy series.

Arden, as we first meet her, is a rather tired and irritated barmaid in a small village where no one seems to respect her. She’s different from those around her with her fair hair and blue eyes, but she’s also hiding a magical secret which could get her killed. However that changes when she meets a rather insane man and his protector and she finds herself running away from the fiery ruins of her home with the god of chaos trapped in her mind. Arden had a sharp wit and a strong backbone to begin with but both become even more predominant as the story unfurls. In fact one of my favorite things about her is her willingness to set aside her fear and do what she feels is right, her own safety be damned. Of course when your nickname is Trouble you can sort of guess how often her safety is on the line. Dev is our elven fierce protector, duty bound to protect those who hold the soul of the god Loku. However his rather detached and stiff nature of the situation changes when he finds himself having to protect the beautiful and highly stubborn (if a little frustrating Arden. I love seeing him become flustered when Arden dug in her heels or rushed head first into danger, and even though I wanted to smack him I loved his trouble with finding a balance between duty and personal feelings. To be honest he’s absolutely terrible at finding that balance and I can’t say I blame him too much, he’s a bit out of practice and Arden does have a chaotic god bouncing around inside her mind. Loku is definitely my favorite though, and it should be no surprise. He’s a god of chaos and he’s name is suspiciously close to Loki…so of course I’m going to like him. He’s funny, highly inappropriate and surprisingly helpful. His silent conversations with Arden were definitely one of my favorite parts of the book as he dispensed both wisdom and lewd suggestions. Then of course there is Cinder, a fire wolf, and Prince Kell who, I’ll be completely honest, is a bit of a spoiled brat even though he’s intelligent and seems to have his heart in the right place.

The world in which Arden and Dev live is pretty interesting though this is mostly a character-driven narrative so we don’t get the lush detail I normally desire. However I was very interested in the social system of Ranello. They have strict laws against magic users and their customs regarding woman are a bit…stone age. I liked seeing how Arden and Dev had to navigate both restrictions and just how much strain it put on them. I am looking forward to seeing more of the world in the next book since it seems we might get to see where Dev and Cinder come from. The love triangle was so-so. We have the sturdy and trustworthy Dev against the well-bred and smooth talking Kell…and Arden sways between the both for different reasons. I wasn’t overly thrilled by it but I am more than a little curious as to who she will ultimately choose because I’m more than a little invested in Dev. Of course there is also the matter of the necromancer who leaves a bit a of a bad taste in my mouth. He’s driven by revenge and power, and his incredibly disgusting. We see him face off with our heroes a few times but I somehow don’t think we’ve seen the end of him.

So while a few things could have been a bit better I really enjoyed the character driven story and the unique touch of having a immature chaos god stuck in a woman’s mind. I look forward to seeing if the necromancer causes more issues and what happens as Arden grows more comfortable with her power and Loku’s ‘helpful’ residence of her mind.
