Lori Adams gives New Adult a haunting paranormal twist with the first novel of The Soulkeepers, a series that blends ancient legends and new myths with an enchanting mix of thrills, humor, and high drama.
When Sophia St. James learns that she’ll be moving from Los Angeles to a podunk town somewhere in Connecticut for her senior year of high school, she isn’t expecting an otherworldly encounter. But there is more to Haven Hurst than meets the eye: it’s home to a family of Guardian Angels, and she is the only one who can see them in spirit form. Sophia soon realizes she wants to see much more of Michael, an irresistible yet volatile Guardian who seems drawn to her too.
As Michael battles his forbidden desire for the beautiful young newcomer, one of Hell’s most notorious Demon Knights arrives. Handsome and charismatic, Dante has come to claim the reincarnated soul of his lost lover trapped in Sophia. Cursed with the demon of Persuasion living inside him, Dante will use his seductive charms to lure Sophia into a dangerous game that ends with the kiss of death—unless Michael, who has captured Sophia’s heart, can now capture her soul.
Advance praise for Forbidden
“A perfect blend of fantasy, humor, romance, and thrills, Forbidden had me laughing, biting my nails, and swooning all over the place.”—Cassie Mae, author of The Real Thing
Before I start my review I would like to thank NetGalley and Random House for approving us to get an ARC copy of this story.
Ok I don’t normally read paranormal type stories, but I have to say this is one that I couldn’t put down. This was one of those books that I lost time on, before I even knew it, it was past 4 o’clock in the morning and I was still reading.
Sophia’s character is so much fun, strong and loving. Even though she is new in town and has had a lot of things happen to her she doesn’t understand, she is still open and friendly and willing to see what this new town has to offer. She is also very worried and protective of her father.
Michael works very hard to hide from his family the hidden feelings that he feels for Sophia, even to the point where he thinks he can stop feeling these if he isn’t around her. He takes his job of a Guardian Angel very seriously, and is not willing to risk the town or his family because he is having feelings for the new girl.
Dante is that dark mysterious and completely dangerous character. He is so exact the what I would feel a demon would be like. And I would have to say even though he is a bad character that whole italian thing he has going is sexy.
I completely enjoyed this book and know there is another one to this series to come later this year which I am completely looking forward to getting a chance to read as well.
Happy Reading…. Adri
