Souled Out

Souled Out - Blakely Chorpenning Tried, but could not get into it. The world-building is interesting (better on the supernatural aspects; less so on questions of exactly how occult certain knowledge is), although it comes out rather heavily infodumped. The protagonist's quips are cute, but she brings a particular line to mind very hard, specifically:
People who didn't need people needed people around to know that they were the kind of people who didn't need people.
as a certain author once said. And I am really not that invested in being an audience to someone else being unimpressed and misunderstood and un-needy right now.

I made it to chapter three before a spate of truly bad editing put the final nail into the coffin.

Giving it two stars rather than one because it might have gotten better, but I am not going through the rest of the book to check.
