Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Jessica marries David, he is everything she wants in a family man: brilliant, attentive, ever youthful. Yet she still feels something about him is just out of reach. Soon, as people close to Jessica begin to meet violent, mysterious deaths, David makes an unimaginable confession: More than 400 years ago, he and other members of an Ethiopian sect traded their humanity so they would never die, a secret he must protect at any cost. Now, his immortal brethren have decided David must return and leave his family in Miami. Instead, David vows to invoke a forbidden ritual to keep Jessica and his daughter with him forever.

Harrowing, engrossing and skillfully rendered, My Soul to Keep traps Jessica between the desperation of immortals who want to rob her of her life and a husband who wants to rob her of her soul. With deft plotting and an unforgettable climax, this tour de force reminiscent of early Anne Rice will win Due a new legion of fans.

Review:

"Top-flight soft-horror novel....Suspense tightens neatly with modest melodrama but with a big sense of family life....A sequel seems likely, though it may be hard to keep up the gripping originality here." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Due has written an incredible story about eternal life and succeeds in inducing the reader to suspend disbelief until the very end of the book." Lillian Lewis, Booklist

Review:

"Present-day human interaction and the ways of the immortals are woven together with imagination and suspense....Those familiar with Anne Rice's novels will be instantly drawn into the world of Dawit and the society created by the immortals." School Library Journal

Review:

"An eerie epic....Bears favorable comparison to Interview with the Vampire. I loved this novel." Stephen King

Review:

"I enjoy reading the kind of novel that seduces me right into it, and makes me forget about work or sleep. My Soul to Keep does that beautifully." Octavia E. Butler
