"Call Off the Search" by Natasja Hellenthal was a real surprise find for me. Not usually one for fantasy books I was intrigued when a friend recommended this book and pointed out the author's fascinating personal background. As animal lover I was persuaded to read this story where a special type of beings exists that have a very special connection to animals.
Our heroine Sula is one of them and is hunted by humans for it. She finds a "soul tie" with Felix, a human.
The book has a wonderful message and works on many levels. Sula is a fantastic heroine who isn't your average superwoman but whose solutions to her problems are more peaceful.
Well written, gripping and just my cup of tea.
