The Soul Cutter is hunting again.

Seventeen-year-old Élan spends her free time videoing psychic scams and outing them online. Skepticism makes life safe—all the ghosts Élan encounters are fakes. When her estranged mother disappears from a film shoot in Egypt, Élan puts her medium-busting activities on hold and joins the search.

In Egypt, the superstitious film crew sucks at finding her mom. When a hotel guest is killed, whispers start—the locals think their legendary Soul Cutter has come back from the dead. Élan's only ally is Ramsey, a film-crew intern, but he’s arrogant, stubborn—and hiding dangerous secrets.

When Élan discovers the Soul Cutter is no scam, she finds herself locked in a deadly battle against a supernatural killer with more than her mother’s life at stake.

Élan is fighting for her very soul.

We are creeping up on Halloween now, and today the lovely Lexa Cain was able to stop by on the blog with a guest post. I read her book earlier this year and reviewed it on the blog, and really liked it, it’s got some horror elements to it, and is set in Egypt! How awesome is that? I definitely recommend you all go and grab an ecopy on Amazon right now–it’s on a special price of 99cents until the 31st of Halloween. So yes, go click that buy link above!

Today Lexa is sharing with us what her main characters of the book, Soul Cutter would wear for this Halloween.

A Guest Post by Lexa Cain

Élan & Ramsey
In Halloween Costumes


Élan as the Invisible Woman

Élan sneaks around a lot, looking for evidence at dodgy séances, on the set of a ghost hunter show, and at an abandoned Egyptian palace. Of course, being chased around by a seven-foot maniac with a scimitar wasn’t exactly on her to-do list, but she’s always prepared for trouble. As the Invisible Woman, Élan could elude the killer and score the intel she needs to put the evil-doers away – and if necessary, kick some serious butt. (And isn’t that kinda always necessary?)


Ramsey lets his wild side out.

Ramsey is a total good guy, always doing the right thing, standing up against creeps, and very protective of those he loves. He knows the rules his ancient family uses to protect him are important, but just once he’d like to ditch them and let his inner Bad Boy out. For Halloween, he’d be a biker, steal Élan away, and ride off to parts unknown.

  1. Sounds like a really kick butt duo! I just love so much that it is set in Egypt, and the invisible power would be perfect. I mean why isn’t this more of a thing? Ramsay sounds lovely, especially with the inner bad boy lol. Great post!

    Horror and Egypt? Ok, while I’m not a horror fan, I definitely want to explore this because what even this sounds so awesome! Haaaa! Invisibility is always a good thing in my eyes.

  4. I’m not sure that Élan can compete with Jessica Alba’s hotness, although it does sound like she’d benefit from some of the Invisible Woman’s skills. I love me a good bad boy, and Ramsey’s plan for Halloween and this book’s heroine sounds perfect!
