Soulstealer Origins, the first book in the Soulstealer Trilogy by Reed Logan Westgate, takes readers on a captivating journey through a world of magic, knights, and ancient mysteries. The narrative opens with vivid imagery of a snow-covered mountainous landscape. The story follows Marcus, a skilled knight of the Templar Order, and his fellow knights as they embark on a dangerous quest to find a fabled weapon hidden within the Matra mountains. Their leader, Lucious de Montfort, is a formidable and enigmatic character, determined to retrieve the weapon to turn the tide of the ongoing crusades. However, Marcus questions the righteousness of their mission and the cost it may bring to the world.

Reed Logan Westgate weaves elements of history, mythology, and fantasy together, creating a rich and immersive world for readers to explore. The clash of cultures, ideologies, and faiths adds depth to the story, making it more than a tale of knights and battles. The character development is a highlight of the story. With his celestial magic and internal conflicts, Marcus is a compelling protagonist whose doubts and moral dilemmas add complexity to his role as a knight. Lucious, the charismatic and committed leader, is a captivating figure with a dark past that adds layers to his character. The ghulah, a female ghul, introduces an unexpected twist to the narrative by speaking and displaying intelligence, challenging preconceived notions about her kind. As the first installment of a trilogy, Soulstealer Origins sets a strong foundation for the subsequent books. Readers will be eager to continue the journey with Marcus and his comrades as they navigate the mysteries of the weapon and confront the darkness ahead.
