Blessed–or cursed–with a connection to the souls of others, Sloan Jordan can see the best in people… and the worst. For twenty-seven years, she's kept her ability a secret, but eleven young women have been murdered in the mountains of North Carolina, and Sloan may be the only hope of finding their killer.

She has just agreed to help Detective Nathan McNamara with the case, when a stranger—who is as alluring as he is terrifying—shows up at her doorstep with a dark past and another puzzling mystery: she can't see his soul at all.

Now Sloan is on the hunt for a deadly psychopath with two irresistible men. One of them would die for her, and the other would kill to keep her safe.

 The Soul Summoner by Elicia Hyder 
(The Soul Summoner, #1)
The Soul SummonerHave you ever been thinking about someone and Poof! There they are or they are suddenly calling or texting you? Is it coincidence, sheer luck? For Sloan Jordan, it is a secret she has kept hidden for years, she sees souls. When she thinks of someone or says their name, they are bound to show up in her life! Not only that, she can tell if a person is good or bad, alive or dead. Her “gift” comes with a cost, migraines, drained energy and having to watch what she says. Her gift is a positive one that seems to be growing, too.

If you‘ve got “the power,” use it, but only for good and that is exactly what Jordan does when she aids the handsome detective, Nathan McNamara with a case involving the murders of eleven young women. Can Jordan help find the killer?

When a mysterious stranger comes to her door, his soul is a blank to Sloan, but he knows who she is and what she can do, because for all of her lightness, he carries darkness, and finding the dead or the evil is his gift. Two men, one heartbreaking case and not enough Jordan to go around as she finds her heart being drawn to both men. One accepts her abilities because he needs her help, the other knows how she feels to be different. Is it possible she can finally find love with one of these strong and possessive men? Are they even available? First things first, a killer must be caught…

The Soul Summoner by Elicia Hyder is part murder mystery, part lopsided love triangle and paranormal intrigue. Flavored with a dash of humor, brilliant dialogue that adds to the realism of this tale, from start to finish, Elicia Hyder has a spellbinding read that defies being pigeon-holed into only one genre, but is guaranteed to entertain from start to finish!

Ms. Hyder’s easy going style is engaging, her world is alive and her characters are priceless!
