Blood of the Earth (Soulwood, #1) by Faith Hunter [eARC]

Title: Blood of the Earth
Series: Soulwood, #1
Author: Faith Hunter
Publication Date: August 2, 2016
Set in the same world as the New York Times bestselling Jane Yellowrock novels, an all-new series starring Nell Ingram, who wields powers as old as the earth.
When Nell Ingram met skinwalker Jane Yellowrock, she was almost alone in the world, exiled by both choice and fear from the cult she was raised in, defending herself with the magic she drew from her deep connection to the forest that surrounds her.
Now, Jane has referred Nell to PsyLED, a Homeland Security agency policing paranormals, and agent Rick LaFleur has shown up at Nell’s doorstep. His appearance forces her out of her isolated life into an investigation that leads to the vampire Blood Master of Nashville.
Nell has a team—and a mission. But to find the Master’s kidnapped vassal, Nell and the PsyLED team will be forced to go deep into the heart of the very cult Nell fears, infiltrating the cult and a humans-only terrorist group before time runs out…
Finally, this book sure has a very slow start. I felt a little guilty for not finishing it right away, but I really can't find myself reading it faster than I thought it would be. For starters, I am very interested in Urban Fantasy, it just happen that this one made me feel so un-interested since the beginning. I thought after few chapters, It might redeem itself and it is after all a good read. But I was wrong, aside from some redundancy, the characters just felt hollow for me. I did not feel any connection with them. It was like I am reading this book but can't feel anything about them.

My Verdict. I don't think I'll be picking up its next book. I really did not enjoy it as much as I want to.
