Overview

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?

    A Fast-Paced Hurricane of Activity

    Get ready for a fast-paced hurricane of activity, action and emotions. Lori Adams’ Awaken picks up shortly after Forbidden and races down another convoluted trail of chaotic proportions. Sophia is gaining confidence and coming into her own, Dante is struggling to get free of the fires of Hell and Michael is flirting with the wrath of God, by falling hard for Sophia. What will become of this little love triangle with each of them sharing a portion of this tale with their own POV.

    Is it the stress of what he is feeling for Sophia that is making Michael seem dark and overly rough sometimes? Is it his feelings for Sophia that gives Dante the ability to survive the tortures he has endured? And what about Sophia? She has grown up so much, accepted her life and is now working hard, but will her feelings for Michael trip them both up? How will she feel when she is face to face with Dante? Sometimes you just have to go with your gut and do what’s right for you, as Sophia is finding out, but the support of the man she loves would be nice.

    Once again Lori Adams has crammed enough action and plot twists onto each page with the finesse of the professional she is. With vivid and often gruesome scenes, that make your gut clench, tear at your heart and have you feeling taut and anxious, she brings this installment home with an expert hand that will leave you asking for more.

    Great Series!!!

    Ok my only criticism...too short. Thank goodness there is another book. I've already pre-ordered so my only problem is ... I have to wait. Lori Adams has done a wonderful job with this story and I selfishly hope that there will be more than three books.

    **I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for my honest review**

    When Sophia St. James survived the kiss of death from the charming Demon Knight, Dante, she thought that she was done with Hell and it’s demons – and that she could move on with her training as a spirit walker…that and she was finally free to love the gorgeous angel Michael Patronus.  Of course, they have to keep their love a secret as an angel isn’t supposed to have a relationship with a human…EVER!  But with Sophia’s Dad slowly getting back to normal after his brush with the demons, she is just ready to move on with her life.

    Michael is in love…and he’s finally seeing his love for Sophia not as a weakness, but as a focal point to concentrate on their love – especially as he is FINALLY selected to begin the trials for the Halos of the Son, and elite team of angelic warriors.  Sophia is his center and their love is the one thing he can count on without a shadow of a doubt…that is until she begins training as a spirit walker, which Michael is immensely against due to the danger she would encounter.

    And in the depths of Hell’s Death Bunker, Dante is facing great pain and suffering for his deception when he was in Haven Hurst…for his intent to bring Sophia back to hell instead of her father, whom he had a death contract on.  He still believes that Sophia contains the spirit of his true love from many lifetimes ago, and he promised her he’d come back for her.  Of course she can’t remember any of it.  But when he gets a chance to sneak out of hell and his daily torture, he jumps at the opportunity to see Sophia again and try to convince her she really does love him.  He needs her in hell with him…

    While the first chapter sort of lagged a little bit, as soon as I got going with the rest of book, I couldn’t put it down!  The love that Sophia and Michael have is just so passionate – and while they aren’t supposed to be together, there is something about a forbidden love that makes it that much better.  But add in the inevitable and dreaded love triangle once Dante makes his way back from hell to claim what he feels is rightfully his…and fireworks is an understatement.  I love that Sophia feels a strong conviction for what she feels she is supposed to do with her life in becoming a spirit walker, even when Michael and a lot of others caution her of its dangers.  She is strong and committed, which makes her a great leading lady.

    Now, please be warned…MAJOR cliff hanger at the end of this book – I think I almost yelled out loud in protest!  I cannot WAIT to see what the conclusion of the series brings…if it’s anything like the first two, be prepared for twists, turns, and lots and lots of steaminess!

    (This is book 2 in the 3 book series.)

    Wow, Lori Adams's imagination blew me away! The world building in the entire Soulkeepers series has been extraordinary and it still continues in Awaken.




    Racked with dark and menacing characters, Sophia, with the help of the Guardian Angel, Michael must traverse her “Awakening” into a Spirit Walker. Ok, she does get some help from a pretty comical trainer as well.




    Dante claws his way out of hell with the sole goal to reignite Sophia's memories of their past love. Sophia devises a plan to deal with Dante but it could destroy them all.




    I really enjoyed reading Awaken. Did you ever read a book and think to yourself, how the heck did the author come up with such an original and creative idea...Awaken is just such a work.




    I was left with a few more questions besides that whopper of a cliffhanger. I love Dante's devotion to Sophia but why would he want her to spend 1 second in hell? And...What is the deal with Michael? 




    Guess we will all have to read book 3 to find out.
