Readers first meet Rachaelis in The Testing, the first book in the series. At the time, the girl is an initiate of a powerful order of mages.
Rachaelis wants to become a full adept. But to do so, she must first pass the Testing, a harrowing trial that will awaken her true strength and determine whether or not she has what it takes to join the Conclave.
Rachaelis is initially quite concerned about The Testing, and for good reason. No one ever talks about the trial, not even the ones who have successfully endured its rigors.
And those who fail are simply never seen or heard from again. So Rachaelis knows that she must give it her all.
However, a new foe brings to Rachaelis’ attention the fact that she has drawn the ire of a deadly enemy. And if the heroine’s will isn’t strong enough, she could lose her body and her soul.
The Third Soul series chronicles Rachaelis’ efforts to find the enemy that keeps dogging her heels.
These books are more like novellas than actual novels. They tell relatively short stories infused with a plethora of twists and turns.
Jonathan Moeller’s plots never let up. He throws as much action and adventure at his readers as he can possibly get away with.
Each book tends to end on a hair-raising cliffhanger that some people love and others hate.
It has been suggested that the Third Soul series as a whole would work better as one full-length novel or a series of much longer books.
In a way, the complaints are a testament to the author’s abilities. Most of Moeller’s fans hate the fact that the individual books are so short because he so thoroughly succeeds in engrossing them.
As such, those who read these books as they were coming out where always assaulted by disappointment whenever a volume suddenly ended.
The series is primarily concerned with Rachaelis’ conflict with a demon that needs her body to cross over to the mortal world.
Because it is trapped on the other side of the veil, the demon in question must rely on a number of zealous followers to acquire and tame Rachaelis.
The heroine, for her part, isn’t content to simply sit back and wait for her enemies to strike.
She spends this series actively seeking out her opponents and removing them from the playing field.
