Author Biography

Shane Boulware is an unconventional idealist from Orlando, Florida. Naturally, he commissioned as a Contracting Officer in the United States Air Force in 2012, where he promptly got tased, was hit with pepper spray, participated in a mock riot, jumped out of an airplane, and lived in a combat zone. These experiences tempered his creative instinct and led him to publish two music albums, found an innovation company, break a Guinness World Record, and learn over sixteen dance styles.

Having grown up a huge fan of Dune, Star Wars, Stargate SG-1, Warhammer 40K, Harry Potter, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and The Lord of the Rings, Shane always wanted to create and share a world of his own. His imagination set him on a path to write the supernatural thriller, Soulstealer, and its sequel, Ordo Solis.

When he’s not negotiating contracts or salsa dancing the night away, you can find Shane taking his creative passion out on an unsuspecting keyboard.

Reviewed by Samantha Gregory for Readers' Favorite

Soulstealer by Shane Boulware is the story of Nythan, a young man who is an Air Force Training Officer. He is starting out in life, trying to make something of himself when a strange encounter changes everything for him. A burglar breaks into the home he is in while housesitting for a friend, and attacks him. What should have ended in his death becomes much more when something is transferred from the burglar into Nythan and suddenly he has a second voice in his head. It was interesting to read how he deals with this turn of events and how he is changed by this encounter. He soon learns that he has bigger problems because someone wants what is inside him. He must fight to survive and to continue to live his life when he is deemed expendable by his enemies. The main character is a normal guy who has something extraordinary happen to him and he has to find a way to survive. We only get a glimpse of Nythan's life before the incident, before it all changes for him.

Shane Boulware has written an interesting story with Soulstealer. The author jumps straight into the story, giving us only a glimpse of Nythan's life beforehand, ensuring we are grabbed from the very first page. Readers who love supernatural and paranormal stories will want to pick up this book. There are not many similar stories out there so the author may have found a niche in the genre. Nythan is a likable character and I wanted to keep reading to find out what happened to him. Soulstealer is a fast-paced thriller that kept me turning the pages, highly recommended!

Hi all! I'm the author. This labor of love took me a little over three years to write and two years to edit. I really like how it turned out, and I hope you do too.vI'd love to hear your feedback! :)
