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.
I loved these characters Sophia and all her "specialness", all her abilities and quirkiness. Michael, well of course I loved Michael's characters besides being sexy and sweet, although moody he's a guardian angel. I think the writer wrote a little in here like he's Edward Cullen in Twilight with bringing Sophia out flying and their "first's" together but I'm glad it didn't continue that way, although a little slow in spots I loved how it picked up again and secrets are revealed and pasts and futures collide. I thought the story was great, intriguing, mysterious and so many more things. I loved the characters, the small town busy bodies, lol and the girlfriends of Sophia. I thought the demons were well written, Wolfgang and Dante and the others. I don't want to ruin anything so I won't say too much but would love to read book 2 in this series. I thought this story was excellent, very creatively written. It keeps you on your toes thats for sure, alot going on. It has a uniqueness that the author captured, very much recommend this story 4.5 stars
