Forbidden The Soulkeepers by Lori Adams
I received Forbidden The Soulkeepers as an ARC. I would like to thank Miss Adams and Random House Publishing Group for this opportunity.
Forbidden is a story of a teenage girl, Sophia, the daughter of a pastor who has recently lost her mother. She and her father do not have much of a relationship. The story opens with Sophia and her father on the road as they move to a new town for her father to start a new job. Sophia quickly learns the difference between a small town and a large city: everyone knows who she before she even meets them. In the course of the story Sophia meets guardian angels and demons. She is torn between an angel and a demon. She learns that there is more to her than she could ever imagine.
While this story started out slow for about the first 25% of the book, I really enjoyed this story! The slow part of the book is necessary to understand what the story is all about. I had a hard time putting this book down I found myself rooting for the good guys, but intrigued by the bad guys. I found myself wanting to delve into the next book in the series the minute I finished this one.
I was pleasantly surprised that the author did not get even a little preachy with her story. With a book about angels where one of the characters is a preacher, it would have been very easy to incorporate morals and scripture into the storyline. But Miss Adams was all about the fiction. I look forward to finishing this series!
