Discarded most of his life, Jamie had learned as a teen that he was a Soul Collector, one of a mysterious group who fought the demons that attacked fellow humans. Cast out into the world, alone, the orphan fought hard to find his way, ending up in a seminary of all places. But chastity wasn’t a problem. He had no time or trust for relationships, let alone love.
Ios felt protective of the Soul Collector, the one the prophecy claimed would one day be his mate. Following the human for years, Ios had done everything he could to ensure his safety without stepping out of the shadows. He also held his lust in check, knowing Jamie would never accept him.
The time was upon them to join forces. Could Jamie handle who and what Ios was, and trust the growing feelings between them before it was too late?
Jamie, a teenage orphan, learns his true identity when he encounters a demon trying to steal the soul of his dead friend. Thrust into the world, Jamie has to face his fate as a Soul Collector, a mysterious group of people who has to fight demons to save humanity. As he fights and destroys demons he gains the souls the demons ‘eat’ and stores them inside his body to take them to heaven, but at the same time he grows stronger.
Ios, Jamie’s mate, remains in hiding protecting young Jamie from demons. Although Jamie does not know Ios, certain circumstances lead to their reunion eight years later after Jamie finds out he is a Soul Collector at the orphanage.
Losing his Religion was a thrilling story to read. Filled with action, romance, and fantasy it made me picture very clearly the characters and their actions. Some of them were heartwarming, teary eye, and hysterical and this is a book I would highly recommend to anyone interested in fantasy. Filled with action from the beginning, you will be unable to put down the book. Enjoy!
