Awaken: The Soulkeepers by Lori Adams


I received an Advanced Review Copy of Awaken: The Soulkeepers in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to Miss Adams and Random house Publishing for this opportunity.

Description via GOODREADS:
The thrills continue in Lori Adams’s addictive New Adult 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?

Awaken: The Soulkeepers is Miss Adams's second installment in her Soulkeepers series. And she does not disappoint! Miss Adams takes the reader back to the town of Haven Hurst, back to Sophia and Michael back to the Patronus family, and back to the supernatural. Awaken starts pretty much where The Soulkeepers left off. Michael and Sophia have begun their little paranormal romance, Sophia finds out that she comes from a long line of Spirit Walkers, Dante is sitting in Hell's Death Bunker being tortured every day from the start of the day to the end of the day only to begin all over again. Ah, but of course Dante's part does not end there, of course not. He finds his way back to Sophia-again-and continues to cause her grief and confusion. 
But Miss Adams has added a few new spins in this book. Dante learns that one of the people close to Sophia has a demon inhabiting their body. . . hmmm, who could it be?? And Sophia and Michael do not see eye to eye when it comes to Sophia training and becoming a Spirit Walker. And is Dante right? Are her memories from her past life with him coming back?
Miss Adams continues expanding her world of Angels, Demons, Spirit Walkers, all while luring the reader into her world of paranormal wonder and excitement. Miss Adams is so talented that the reader almost forgets they can't grab the character's hand and drag them along saying "Come on! I'll help!".
