Overview

New Adult Paranormal Romance by bestselling author Kristie Cook ** Mature Content ** Recommended for ages 16+ due to sexual situations and language

The story that began with Promise continues in Book 2 of the Soul Savers Series.

Defending souls is her purpose...but can she save her own?

Lost in despair, Alexis teeters on the edge of an abyss, her lifeline of hope fraying into a thin thread. If it snaps, she'll plunge into complete darkness. With the help of her son and her writing, she's been able to hold on. Until now. Erratic impulses, disturbing delusions and her own demonic blood threaten her sanity. When she's forced to choose between hanging onto hope or letting go to serve her Amadis purposes, she faces a decision with inconceivable sacrifices.

Alexis runs to the one place she thinks will provide answers, only to find herself at the center of another battle of good versus evil, not only with the Daemoni, not only within herself...but also against the worst opponent imaginable. But even if she wins, what will she lose?

Editorial Reviews

Blog - Jessica E
I never thought that any other book could make my heart pound like Promise did but I was wrong. Purpose exceeded all expectations and presented a story that kept my emotions on high-alert. A true masterpiece that will appeal to all paranormal romance fans.
Blog - Lisa L
With emotions running high from Promise to Purpose - It’s thrilling, fast paced, sexy – with moments I found myself shaking my head, my heart breaking a little, gasping or laughing out loud...Anyone who loves a good paranormal story with a steamy romance, you have found the perfect two books just for you. I highly recommend both Promise and Purpose to everyone.

    Even better than Promise!

    Purpose is even better than the book that came before it! If I could give this book an infinite rating, I would. In Promise, Kristie Cook showed us the joy and happiness of first and true love. But in Purpose, she shows us the opposite; the heartache and despair left behind when that love and hope is taken away. It's been seven years since the Daemoni attack that took Tristan away from Alexis. It's unknown whether he's alive or dead. The only things keeping Alexis from plunging head-first into darkness are her son Dorian, her writing, and the thin ray of hope that Tristan is still alive; but that hope is dwindling. When the Daemoni threaten to take away the only things left in her life that are keeping her going, Alexis travels to the one place she believes still holds a strong connection to her lost love. With the Ang'dora fast approaching, the battle of good versus evil not only against the Daemoni but within her own mind, and a battle against the one opponent she could never kill, Alexis will have to find the strength to save herself and those she loves. As I said in my review for Promise, I love how Kristie makes her characters so real, but it's the emotion of the characters and the story that stands out the most. I don't think I've ever read a book or series that made me feel as much as this one does. The emotion rolls right off the pages and wash over you. There is no way you could feel nothing while reading this book. In Purpose, Alexis is lost in the despair and heartache of Tristan's absence. Hanging on the edge of sanity, her mind has fractured to help cope with the loss: there's Almost Alexis who is close but not quite Real Alexis, Foggy Alexis who keeps her in a state of numbness, Swirly Alexis who mixes fact and fiction, Psycho Alexis who lashes out at the slightest provocation, and then there's Evil Alexis who is her own Daemoni side whispering evil in her ear. If not for Dorian and her writing, she would surely have given up hope. But now with the added threat of the Daemoni, as well as the Amadis, threatening to take that hope away permanently, Alexis is more determined than ever to hang on no matter what. So she travels to Florida where the beach house Tristan built her is located, hoping that their happy memories will help strengthen her resolve. While there she makes an unexpected and unbelievable discovery, comes into her powers as the goes through the Ang'dora, and once again has to battle the Daemoni. Her son, Dorian, is such an adorably sweet little boy. Already coming into his father's warrior strength, and possessing his mother's fierce protectiveness, Dorian is wise beyond his six years of age. He also holds Alexis' great capacity to love. Having never met Tristan, and because of Alexis making sure that Dorian knows who his father is and that he is loved by Tristan, Dorian is able to love and miss this father. That love causes him to get into numerous fights at school when the other kids say horrible things about Tristan. As a very young boy he has a strength of character that I can't help but admire. There is so much more I would love to say about Purpose, but I really don't want to give anything away and spoil the story for anyone else. Where Promise ended bitter-sweetly, Purpose finishes on a much better note. I'll leave this review with this thought: The best kind of true love is born from adversity and hard work and is fated to last forever.

    Highly RECOMMENED-AWESOME BOOK

    If you fell in love with Alexis and Tristen in Promise then Purpose will leave you wanting more. The book starts off a little slow but the information is needed to understand Alexis's pain and hurt when Tristen leaves. Once the story started to pick up I could not put it down, even with two jobs, a house, and family to maintain. The writer leaves you wanting more and with the concluaion of Purpose I really cannot waite to see if there is going to be another installment to this series.....Loved it

    A MUST READ!!! The second installment in the amazingly awesome Soul Saves series. In this book you go through a roller coaster of emotions. Alexis has lost half of her soul...literally. You endure the agonizing pain right with her. This is a page-turner, keep you on the edge of your seat story. One that will keep you up way past your bedtime and stays put in your mind well after you're done reading it! I really cannot get enough of this series!!!

    This sequel to Promise not only delivered, it was breathtaking. The stakes have been raised and the story deepens with this next installment. Purpose will take you on an emotional roller coaster that will keep you up at night flipping the pages. Lovers of urban fantasy, paranormal, and high-pulsed romance will enjoy this!

    Amazingly perfect

    So I read the first one in this series and fell in love with the story line and plot. When that one was finished, I automatically went and bought this one. I wanted to know what happened to the kid and Tristian, and boy was I in a shock. This is full of love, tragedy, and happiness. I love this series and want to read the third in the series.
