What G & U are talking about:
Soul Stealer is the final book in the Anomaly trilogy by Anna Hackett.  Gikany and Una feel that was the perfect ending to this very fascinating paranormal romance novella trilogy.
This final book is about the most compelling and horrific ability – soul stealing.  Cate unfortunately is not only able to steal a person’s soul by absorbing it, killing them in the process, but the absorption of a soul is addicting to Cate.  In the last novella, Mind Raider, Cal and Mara along with Sean and Bay rescued Cate from the evil Levin.  In Soul Stealer we find out that Levin had much more interest in Cate than just using her to punish his enemies permanently.  
Gage, the doctor on the island of Haven, is dedicated to helping give the anomalies assistance so that they may come to a balance with their abilities.  When he meets Cate, he is absolutely captivated with her.  Although their relationship moves fast (it has to since it is only a novella), it is passionate, compelling and heartwarming.  
Soul Stealer ties up the complete story arc nicely.  It left Gikany and Una with a profound sense of hope and feeling that everyone is deserving of a second chance.  This is a great little trilogy.  We recommend the Anomaly trilogy to anyone who wants a very fun and steamy escape to the day.
