Tasty Book Tour Spotlight + Review + Giveaway: Awaken: The Soul Keepers by Lori Adams

The Soulkeepers # 2
By: Lori Adams
Releasing July 15th, 2014

The thrills continue in Lori Adams’s addictive series of paranormal romance—the Soulkeepers—featuring the hottest love triangle in this life . . . or the next.

Sophia St. James has every reason to be happy: she survived the kiss of death from the seductive Demon Knight Dante and is free to be with Michael, her sexy Guardian Angel. She eagerly begins her Awakening to become a Spirit Walker and help lost souls cross over. But her training is fraught with setbacks, and Michael begs her to stop. The life of a Spirit Walker is far too dangerous, and he won’t be able to protect her.

Then Dante returns, threatening to drag Sophia to Hell so they can finally be together. Terrified of losing everything she has worked for, Sophia turns the tables on Dante, luring him into a deception that may get them both killed. The stakes climb even higher when Dante’s ally, Wolfgang, emerges from Hell with one order: kill Sophia. Will Michael once again be Sophia’s saving grace or will the Awakening give her the power she needs to save herself?

My Thoughts:

First off, you will need to read Forbidden before progressing on to Awaken, because it picks up where Forbidden leaves off. Now I have gotten that off my chest. I don't know where to start. I mean a lot happens in the story. At the end of Forbidden you are left to believe Dante is dead, then again he's a demon and do they really die. Anyway, he's just biding his time time he can make a go again to get Sophia. During most of the story Michael and Sophia are apart, because they have different views on whats good for Sophia. Now Sophia wants to become a Spirit Walker, but Michael believes it's too dangerous. So, they have a disagreement and they basically breakup. So, this is a great time for Dante to move in on Sophia. I have to say that she does something that was probably unwise which leads us to needing the next book.

Honestly, I felt overwhelm with all that was going on in the story. Yet, Awaken is pretty awesome. I mean you have Dante breaking free from Hell. Michael is training to become a Halos of the Son and trying to convince Sophia not to become a Spirit Walker. Sophia is training to become a Spirit Walker even though both Dante and Michael don't want her to. For once Michael and Dante agree on something. However, this a pivotal part to the trilogy, and you will find a lot of action in this story. Plus, a lot of frustration from Michael, Sophia, and Dante. It's still a good story and it does make you wonder what's going to happen in the conclusion. Is Sophia going to remember the past with Dante or will she chose Michael and forge forward? Now I have to wait, exciting stuff awaits.
