Claire Daly: Reluctant Soul Saver by Michele Brouder
Publication Date: September 2015
Genre: YA, Paranormal Romance
When seventeen year-old librarian wannabe Claire Daly is dragged kicking, screaming and cursing from everything she loves—her mam, her cozy Irish village and the dreamy boy next door—to take up arms in the battle of good versus evil, she learns the hard way that sometimes you don’t get to choose your own destiny, destiny chooses you.
Claire’s life plan is simple: head off to university to get her degree in library studies, summon up the courage to tell her best friend Chas that she loves him and live happily ever after. She never once entertained the idea that she might possess divine powers, that she might be predestined to battle Hell’s demons, or, to complicate matters further, that another love of many lives past might turn up on her doorstep. But life doesn’t always go as planned, and when a co-worker is viciously attacked by a demon and her own family threatened, Claire must face the truth: she is called to a higher purpose and has no choice but to answer. Claire sets aside her dreams and begins learning how to deal with the Unholy once and for all. Armed with only a crash course in soul saving and her wits, she gears up for the ultimate show down in Hell. But will it be enough?
Claire Daly dreams of going to college and becoming a librarian and having her crush and best friend, Chas, fall in love with her and live happily ever after. Little does Claire know that her future is not what she plans it to be when Claire suddenly learns that she has a divine gift and many other secrets that have yet to be revealed to her, including a very handsome man, Ari.
Taken under her aunt’s wing to learn more about her gifts, Claire struggles with her faith, the challenges before her, and the evil that is chasing her. Claire has little time to learn all that she needs to as her powers are greatly desired by the worst of all evil.
Helping her aunt, she is thrust into hell and its many layers. Only in hell does Claire learn of what she truly is capable of and how powerful she really is. But does Claire turn to evil to save her family? Are the secrets revealed to her to much for her to handle? Is Ari really good or is evil in disguise? You will have to read the book!
I absolutely adored Claire’s sarcasm throughout this book and it made the book that much more enjoyable for me. This is not my normal genre but I am glad that I was given the opportunity to read and review this book. Coincidence or……..
I give this book three out of four “Loose Cannons”. SEE RATING SYSTEM!

I was born in western New York, the oldest of 5. I’ve loved reading since I was very little. From the age of 9, I’ve wanted to be a writer. In high school, I wrote a lot of angst-ridden civil war dramas ala Gone With The Wind, knowing more about the Battle of the Bull Run than a normal teenager should know. I dabbled in writing after that but didn’t get serious about it until 2006, when I decided that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
I’ve had many interesting jobs but my passion has always been writing.
I lived in Ireland from 2006-2013 with my husband and 2 boys. We moved back to the US and settled in Florida briefly (2 years) before returning back to Ireland in August 2015.
