This book has it all: great writing, great characters and great plot. As I read it, I got chills. The danger and the emotions seemed so real, as did the attraction between Nila, the attorney and failed shaman, and Nathan, the anthropologist who's having a hard time focusing on bones when Niva is around. I won't give away any spoilers, but my favorite part was the ending. Just perfect. This is the second book in the Lost World series. I hope there's a third soon, because I'm eager to read it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

As a follow up to Soul Survivor, Soul Protector is about Dr. Nathan Hunter, an anthropologist looking to find the missing Salt Coast Clan and save his job at the same time. While he is trying to set up and exam ancient human remains that show up where a new water project will take place, an attorney representing the land, Nila Willopah gets in the way and prevents him from doing this. There is an undeniable pull between Nathan and Nila that goes beyond just feelings and any physical attraction. Neither of them seems to know exactly what it is at first, but circumstances cause them to spend more time together while figuring out what is going on with the bones and their ghosts. I was able to follow along with this book easier than in Soul Survivor (I don’t have a lot of experience with Native American beliefs, etc). I thought Misty did a great job at letting the reader experience the feelings and emotions that Nila and Nathan felt when they could hear or see the ghosts. I almost felt as though I really did see or hear the ghosts.
I enjoyed that Rife and Keva made an appearance to help tie things together for Nathan and Nila at the end. Overall, I enjoyed the otherworldly aspects of the book along with the romance between Nathan and Nila. As with all of Misty’s books, romance between new characters build at a real-world pace (makes it more believable than characters in other books that meet and have a deep relationship in a day or two) and the intimate scenes were romantic, sensual and very appropriate. I enjoyed this book so much I plan to go back and reread Soul Survivor to get another perspective on it!
