The doctors had diagnosed Doris with non convulsive status epilepticus, but there was so little known about the condition that it wasn't possible to be 100%, but in this case they were far off the mark. She had always been different, her first words were a sentence, and her mind continued to expand. She would suffer from strange spells, and while they had no negative effect when her mind returned to her body, she had knowledge and understanding of that beyond what she should be capable of knowing. Better yet, she retained this information. It fell to her sister, Debbie, and her brother, Jake, to watch over her. Their mother had no idea about Doris's gift, not that she would have cared. The only thing she cared about was making them miserable, something which only grew worse; she had never wanted them to begin with, this much was clear. Whenever Doris has a spell she always sees a scruffy man and their fates are intertwined more than she knew. They both possess an ability, and when things go wrong they could be the only ones who can put it right. How can Dori and this scruffy man change the course of the future? Find out in Dave Lozer's Dori Book 1: Even Bad People Have Good Souls (Dori Spells Volume 1)

Written in a combination of third person perspective and first person from John's point of view, Dori Book 1: Even Bad People Have Good Souls (Dori Spells Volume 1) takes you on a journey of greed, self-preservation, and selfishness, whilst simultaneously exposing you to one of love and support. Dave Lozer shows the lengths people will go to in order to cover up a mistake, their actions making things worse than had they simply admitted an error. This is a fascinating story with a good cast of characters and development. The pace is slow, but steady with intricate threads woven throughout. It is a very involved story, and you'll be amazed at some of the ways the characters alter from the time we first meet them to the end of the book. This is the first book in Dori Spells, and I would be interested to discover where Dave Lozer plans to take us in his future books.


A very intriguing book, some very scary things happen in Dori Book One by Dave Lozer that you won't soon forget. I really enjoyed the story, great character development. Highly recommended.
