review for a short story

Hello, I just read a short story called Wayward Soul, by Kim Bowman. Astraea Press put it out. It's an interesting little paranormal.

Here's the blurb:
When Zanna Seoul accidentally causes the death of a fellow spirit guide’s charge while trying to save the life of the man she loves, she is stripped of her position and banished to Earth to die. In the spirit world, one doesn’t mess with what’s written.

With Zanna no longer guiding him and his memory of her erased, Owen Nash is left wide open as the target of the vengeful spirit guide who feels he’s been wronged. A guide who also happens to be a werewolf. Once on Earth, Zanna refuses to stand by and watch Owen die, so she intervenes again, setting off a chain of events that could mean death for all of them if she doesn’t go back and undo the mess she’s made. Can Zanna succeed before the werewolf does?

This story has a lot of action in it and takes place partially on another plane of existence. Zanna has to meet with the sentries in this mystical place and answer for what she did. Sent back to earth as a human and being unrecognizable by her love brings about an adventure. He thinks she's crazy. How is she to help him? The pace is quick enough to keep things rolling well. The Zanna and Owen are likeable, and the story is different from many paranormals. For a fast read in the paranormal romance genre, this is a good one to check out.
