While awaiting his execution for murdering his son, Benjamin Poe confesses to his lawyer the true story behind his crime, a harrowing tale of a manipulating, soul-collecting demon named Crighton. 

Following Poe’s death, Crighton continues his malevolent duties, until he’s kidnapped by members of The Sovereign Sector. This group of scientists, notorious for experimenting on supernatural creatures, forces Crighton into a soulmate relationship with the very angel he was sent to capture for Lucifer. 

However, with secrets revealed and loyalties shifting, Crighton soon becomes the target of Lucifer's revenge, and his journey to redemption and freedom—or eternal enslavement—begins.

“Soul Seeker,” by Kaylin McFarren, is a riveting supernatural thriller reminiscent of a Stephen King novel. This dark drama of angels and demons begins with a father being on death row for murdering his son. Before his execution, he told his lawyer that the demon named Crighton was responsible. But he wouldn’t be the first killer to blame an evil entity for taking a life. Is he telling the truth, or is he criminally insane?
As the story continues, the narrative shifts focus to the demon itself as his devilish powers and purpose cross paths with innocent (or not-so-innocent people). Crighton’s eventual mission is to capture a high-ranking angel for Lucifer. But Crighton is abducted by The Sovereign Sector, a team of scientists who experiment on supernatural entities. These scientists force Crighton into a relationship with this angel that changes everything and has Lucifer himself hunting him down for revenge. Crighton has an eternal choice to make: Freedom or slavery?
McFarren is known for her psychological thrillers, but there is a supernatural twist to “Soul Seeker” that doesn’t disappoint. Crighton is a character caught up in newfound desires and the dark master he serves. This author knows how to set up an irresistible plot with a satisfying narrative and compelling character arcs. The team of experimenting scientists and what they do is intriguing as well, and you wonder how in the world Crighton is going to get out of this, if he does at all.. A lot of stories are predictable or a re-hash, but McFarren’s isn’t. She is skilled at teasing you with scenes, giving you just enough information to keep the pages turning, and then turning the tables on you by shifting the focus of the story. Once invested in the story, you just have to find out what happens to these characters. McFarren is fearless when it comes to taking characters and situations to the brink and back.
My favorite part is how this story all started, with Benjamin Poe and the drama with his wife and son. My second favorite part is the relationship between Crighton and Ariel. You can just see this playing out in your mind. Some books are a natural for the movie screen, and this is one of them. Another layer is the sense of humor that lightens everything, especially in the later parts of the book. If you’ve never read this author before, don’t worry; you can trust her talent. She will take you with confidence to the underworld, and you will emerge again safely above ground. “Soul Seeker,” by award-winning author Kaylin McFarren, is the edgy, supernatural thriller you’ve been looking for.

About the author (2020)

Kaylin McFarren has received more than 50 national literary awards, in addition to a prestigious RWA Golden Heart Award nomination for FLAHERTY'S CROSSING - a book she and her oldest daughter, New York Times/USA Today best-selling author Kristina McMorris, co-wrote in 2008. Prior to embarking on her writing journey and developing the popular THREADS psychological thriller series, she poured her passion for creativity into her work as the director of a fine art gallery in the Pearl District in Portland, Oregon; she also served as a governor-appointed member of the Oregon Arts Commission. 

When she's not traveling or spoiling her two pups and three grandsons, she enjoys giving back to her community through participation and support of various charitable, medical and educational organizations in the Pacific Northwest. Her latest time-travel adventure, HIGH FLYING, asks challenging questions that will linger long after the final twists are revealed. Recently jumping to the supernatural thriller genre, Kaylin's clever SOUL SEEKER series leads readers into the pit of Hell, through the mechanisms of secret societies, and across the earth's crust, ever raising the stakes for her leading duo--a wicked demon and a saintly angel with secret earth-shattering agendas. With each story she writes, this author delivers unexpected twists and turns and keeps her readers on the edge of their seats, leaving them guessing and thoroughly entertained.
