Retribution ( Lost Souls 1) by Amy Thompson

Title: Retribution ( Lost Souls 1)
Author: Amy Thompson
Published: June 18th, 2013 by Thompson Publishing

Blurb from Goodreads:Regan Edison has just moved from California, to enter her first year at Georgia Liberty College, the place where jacked up Chevy trucks and hunting are a way of life. Regan hopes to start a new life for herself and she thinks that Georgia is just the place to do it. That is until she meets an unexpected stranger. 

Colter Hayes is a member of the Collectors, a group of wrongfully punished lost souls. Colter and the rest of his team, Finn, Kaiden and Devon, work for the Requiem Council who pass judgment on those souls that are neither tagged for Heaven nor Hell. The Council has charged the Collectors with finding the lost in exchange for a chance at redemption.

When an ex-councilmember known to pass Retribution on lost souls sets his sights on Regan, the Requiem Council dispatches the Collectors to Georgia to work as protectors for Regan. The Collectors must fight to save Regan from a fate they know all too well, but can they work to earn back their chance at redemption or are their fates sealed forever?

Who is meant for Heaven? 
Who is meant for Hell?
And who is just lost?

Review: *** I was given a copy of this book for review***
    When I read the first chapter for this book I was really interested. The whole idea of Lost Souls wanting redemption and council members from heaven and hell arguing where a souls belongs is really awesome. This is perhaps the best part of the novel. The fact the plot is pretty original. Also playing on the whole out-there-plot we have a mystery that is pretty hard to figure out ans furthermore we have character turmoil and plenty of drama to make the plot of this novel interesting, fast paces and intense.
   The characters is where i found this book a little difficult to get through. Mainly, our heroine,Regan. I liked her in some moments but in others I just wanted to shake the girl. She acted a but childish and immature at times and had her selfish moments. Now I'm not saying she was a total Mary Sue, but she made the situation worse for herself plenty of times. There were moments when I really liked her and then BOOM the girl goes and ruins it by saying or doing something really stupid.
   Colter was confusing but I liked him. He certainly had his a**whole moments, but his background and what he went through  really added depth to his character. I especially loved all the supporting characters. They were funny and made the story very realistic.
    Overall this was a great read and the plot was amazing my only issue was with the heroine. However, I'm hoping our heroine will mature and that little detail will make the next book and amazing read.
 I give this novel
