About this eBook


"They call me devil, liar, thief. In whispers, they call me Soul Eater. They’re right. I’m all those things—and more." 

Kicked out of the underworld and cursed to walk this earth for all eternity, Ace Dante finds solace in helping others avoid the wrath of the gods.

But when warrior-bitch, Queen of Cats, and Ace's ex-wife, Bastet, hires him to stop whoever is slaughtering her blessed women, Ace is caught between two of the most powerful deities to have ever existed: Isis and Osiris.

The once-revered gods aren’t dead.

They’re back.

And Ace is in their way.

Welcome to a New York where the ancient gods roam.

8/10 The core of the book was very good, but it is not a complete story. The book just kind of ends with many issues unresolved. It should probably only get 4 stars.

This book is perfect. I love Egyptian Mythology and i love Ace and Bastet and also Chuck. I'll kill Osiris for what he does. That command, because of that i want to curse his soul for an endless torture. Don't ever miss this book!
