In FALTER, a dark New Adult/Adult Urban Fantasy novel, Nevaeh Richards thinks she has found a chance to leave her homeless life behind. When the spirit of the only father she knows is wrongfully taken to Hell, Nevaeh is hurled into a world haunted by monstrous demons, rogue Guardian angels, love that is beyond her control, and a soul-threatening choice between the inherent evil inside her and the faltering faith she is struggling to grasp.
Nevaeh and George have lived on the streets as father and daughter since he found her, alone and unconscious, many years ago. When they start a new life employed at Joe's cafe, Nevaeh experiences debilitating visions and frightening apparitions. Adding to the troubling path her life has taken, George suddenly becomes ill and an Animus demon takes his soul hostage in Hell. Unfortunately, the ransom may be more than Nevaeh can afford.
As Nevaeh spirals into this supernatural world, Gavyn—the handsome café-owner—tries to convince her that she belongs to a hidden race of people with God-given gifts known as Celatum, and she may be a key player in the Celestial war. However, even after all the otherworldly events she experiences, Nevaeh continues to deny her part in it all.
Meanwhile, Archard—a stranger she feels undeniably bonded to—mysteriously wanders in and out of her life, offering none of the answers she suspects he holds.
Will Nevaeh attain the faith it requires to fulfill her fate as a Celata and take part in the Celestial fight? Or will she give into the darkness that calls to her for the sake of George's soul and damn herself to Hell?

Falter has ended a reading slump I have been in for the past several months. Unable to find a book that I could get lost in, Falter fell into my lap and I thought "sure, why not?" I am so excited and frustrated that I read this novel end to end. Let me explain. My excitement is over the fact that I have found a book that is edited perfectly, doesn't confuse the reader, kept my attention, and contains characters that are not flat and fill me with their emotions. I am frustrated with the fact that I am left without Severance, Book 2 in the Faltering Souls Series but pleased where Falter left the reader.
The main character Nevaeh is a twenty-something girl who happens to live on the streets. With no memories to go off on, Nevaeh's only family is her father figure George. When the nightmares start to become reality, events begin to unfold that alter Nevaeh's daily life and she begins to question her sanity. Torn between two worlds, Neveah must make sacrifices no one should ever have to face and only a few lucky will ever have to make.
Falter is an amazing read and I truly hope that other readers enjoy it just as much as I have.
