Cord nodded. “Of course. As you wish.” He remained fixed to the spot.

“You’re not leaving.”

“My illusion is weak, My Lord.” Cord glanced toward the body in the corner.

Lucifer motioned toward Mr. Harrington’s body. “Well? Help yourself. Lunch is getting cold.”

With an unholy growl, both Watchers swooped in and began to eat, fighting over every scrap.

Lucifer lowered himself into the executive’s leather chair. He grinned as the evidence of Mr. Harrington’s murder was conveniently ingested. “Enjoy. Consider the meal an employee benefit.” Fingers laced behind his head, he leaned back to prop his feet up on the mahogany desk.

“Harrington Enterprises is officially under new management.”

Book Club Discussion Questions

1. The Hopi Snake Dance at the beginning of the novel is based on an actual ceremony. Do you feel that preserving cultures like the Hopi’s is important for our future?

 

2. Adults don’t always take Malini seriously as a leader. Why do you think this is?

 

3. Grace says that the Soulkeepers’ work deserves scrutiny. Do you agree that it’s better to debate important decisions from both sides before adopting a change? Or should people simply follow a leader’s direction?

 

4. Is Malini a good leader? Why or why not?

 

5. Dane shows small kindnesses to Archibald throughout the book. Do these things matter?

 

6. Compare and contrast Ethan and Dane’s relationship with Lucifer and Auriel’s. Which do you think is the healthier relationship?

 

7. Did anything about the progression of Dane and Ethan’s relationship bother you? Did you think Ethan should have been more direct?

 

8. Dane never labels his sexuality in this novel. How would you characterize him based on what you know? Do you think how Dane is portrayed is realistic?

 

9. Eden is perfectly safe. Some people would call it paradise. Would you want to live there?

 

10. Bonnie has a misaligned attraction throughout most of Soul Catcher. Why do you think girls sometimes obsess over what they can’t have?

Acknowledgements

Soul Catcher took some bravery to write. My vision for Dane and Ethan was always that they end up together. But we live in a time when homosexuality is an emotionally charged and controversial topic. The Soulkeepers Series is fantasy with religious elements, and when I introduced Ethan in the third book, I received some backlash from a small but vocal minority of readers who didn’t like his sexual orientation. At that point, I considered not writing the fourth book.

I’m happy to say that thanks to a number of people in my life, I found the courage to continue the series as I’d imagined it. My husband for one, along with fellow authors Karly Kirkpatrick and Angela Carlie helped me to remember that the Soulkeepers has always been about self-acceptance. Writing about Dane’s relationship was necessary, more than ever in this time of divisive politics, because the world needs a hero who, like so many teens today, is struggling with his sexuality.

Thanks also to Adam Bedore of Anjin design for coming through for me on the cover once again. Finally, thank you readers for coming along on this journey with me.
