    A Nice Continuation in The Soulkeepers series.

    loved The Soulkeepers. I thought it was a brilliant and amazing book. So, I was quite excited to read the next book in the series, Weaving Destiny. And when I learned that the story would be told from Malini's point of view, I thought "Yay!".

    Weaving Destiny is the story of Malini's search to find her place in the world of the Soulkeepers. Her apparent lack of ability leaves her feeling frustrated and left out. All that frustration and the emergence of a new Soulkeeper, Mara, begins driving Malini and Jacob apart. It seems, the journey that Malini has to take to find her destiny, she must take alone.

    Weaving Destiny includes some intriguing new characters and a larger role for some of the secondary characters of The Soulkeepers. The new addition to the group, Mara, is bold, sexy and confident. She is the polar opposite to Malini in many respects. She's the funniest character in the book, always sure to chime in with her morbid sense of humor. Henry is another new character that I felt made a great addition to the book. He is handsome and old-fashioned, to say the least. I won't give away in what capacity, but he is a major game-changer!

    I was happy to find that Lillian, who is Jacob's mom, and Gideon played a bigger part in Weaving Destiny. And Dane, also. Dane was often the comic relief in this book. He was a huge support system for Jacob and Malini. And if you've read book one, you'll know that is a huge departure from the role he played in it.

    One character that I was surprised didn't play a bigger part in this book was Dr. Silva. She was a huge part of The Soulkeepers. I've never fully trusted her. Something about her seems off. She always seems to have a secret up her sleeve. I'm sure she has a lot more to reveal and hope that she will play a larger part in book three.

    Weaving Destiny didn't pull me in quite as tightly as The Soulkeepers. And I definitely didn't become engrossed as soon. But, Wow. This book really got it together in the end. The last few chapters were fast-paced, terrifying, and heart-wrenching. And the epilogue? Let's just say it was ominous. Book three in The Soulkeepers series should be quite a ride!


    Favorite Quote:

    " 'So, you do find her attractive.'
    'Will you stop saying the word attractive like you looked it up in a thesaurus under 'ambiguous
    words to trap your boyfriend with'? "


    " 'I wear the Spongebob pajamas so that I remember how it felt to watch someone I thought I wanted
    dead plunge a knife into her chest. I didn't like it, Jacob. Spongebob reminds me to live by the rules
    even though I don't have to.' "

    *I received this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.*

    A Beautiful Addition to the series!

    With Weaving Destiny, G.P. Ching serves up a fascinating story that is equal parts action, excitement and emotional baggage.

    Jacob and Malini's relationship undergoes a change, and I must say that it makes me love them even more. I am not going to give away the details, but let's just say that the dynamics change. They do a lot of growing throughout Weaving Destiny; both together and separately. Malini especially begins to have more of an identity outside of their relationship and it is really nice to see her in the spotlight.

    There is also a new Soulkeeper in town. Mara is a teenage girl from Chicago that has had an extremely rough go of it. She is definitely jaded and she adds an interesting dynamic to the story. I was afraid that she would simply become a plot device used to cause friction between Malini and Jacob, but as the story progressed she began to come into her own. I will not deny it, I was quick to judge her, but she certainly grows on you. She undoubtedly stepped into a difficult role; I cannot imagine anyone will take too kindly to someone who comes between Jacob and Malini. However, Ching did give her an awesome story arc. Out of all the plotlines in the series so far, I am most excited to see hers develop.

    Weaving Destiny, much like its predecessor is filled to the brim with action and excitement. Ching certainly has some new tricks up her sleeve to keep things interesting, including zombies, dates with Death and a side trip to Eden. I can only imagine what Ching has in store for us in book three.

    The ending certainly snuck up on me; I did not expect it to end so quickly. I was so engrossed in the storyline that I was not paying any sort of attention to the page numbers. And I must admit, I am dying to know what happens next.

    Weaving Destiny was a wonderful follow up to G.P. Ching's The Soulkeepers. Ching manages to stay true to the characters, while expanding them at the same time. We are also introduced to a few new friends that are sure to captivate readers. I loved the first installment and I was afraid that Weaving Destiny wouldn't live up to it, but I am happily to admit that I was wrong. It was just as exciting and intriguing as the first book!

    Captivating and Original: Highly Recommended!

    I loved this book even more than the first in the series, The Soulkeepers, which is saying something because I really loved that one too. The second volume in The Soulkeepers series continues the original, epically written, and fast paced saga that G.P Ching began in The Soulkeepers. With an impending showdown against fallen angels, new friends and foes alike, zombies, prom dates with Death, and startling new discoveries, Weaving Destiny is an action packed, emotionally charged ride start to finish.

    Weaving Destiny picks up a few months after the first book, and finds Jacob, his mother, Malini, Dr. Silva, and Gideon still searching for more information about the Soulkeepers and the Watchers. With a rash of killings and disappearances believed to be the work of evil Watchers, the group set out to stop and discover their enemies' plans. Mara, another teenage Soulkeeper, joins the group and causes friction between Jacob and Malini. Throughout the book, our main characters find as many new questions as they do answers, and they must not only battle with their enemies, but with themselves as well.

    I read this book in one setting simply because I could not put it down and I had to keep turning pages to find out what happened next. The fresh, original, and enthralling elements of the first book are still there in Weaving Destiny, but there's also more emotional and psychological elements that give the story real depth and has the allowed the main characters, Jacob and Malini especially, to grow and evolve a great deal. Even with all the paranormal and fantasy elements, Ching never loses her characters or their realness. The overall storyline develops at a fast pace, but its never overwhelming. The pacing feels and reads very organic.

    We discover, explore and learn more about the magical world of the Soulkeepers in this book, and Ching continues to impress me with her ability to both modernize very traditional stories and myths, and to add new, exciting layers and twists to them. There were a few twists and discoveries that I never saw coming and found myself perfectly captivated by them.

    I liked how this book focuses a great deal on Malini's character and figuring out just what she is and how she fits in the world of the Soulkeepers. I won't spoil anything for you, but Malini's personal and magical journey was, at times, both heart stopping and heart breaking. Despite the focus on Malini, Jacob's character isn't ignored in this book. Jacob contends with his own struggles, both as a Soulkeeper and as a teenager. Malini and Jacob's stories are very much intertwined and they, and readers alike, have to figure out just what that means.

    Being introduced to new characters in a series isn't always an easy thing to adjust to. Sometimes, as readers, we may feel like new characters take time and attention away from already beloved characters that we've grown attached to. So, I wasn't sure about the character of Mara at first. I was afraid that she was going to be used simply as a way to come between Jacob and Malini. But I quickly came to really like the feisty girl. Her character is well developed and serves her own, integral purpose to the storyline.

    Weaving Destiny had me on the edge of my seat and breathless from beginning to end. The storyline continues to be creative, original, and captivating. I cannot wait to read the third book. You really must read this book!

    book

    favorite line "Use me." she read. "How very 'Alice in Wonderland' " the reason the person said this is because it was a glove on a table and a guy wrote a note telling malini to use the glove. just read the book and it will make sense.

    Just as good as the first!!

    I bought this book immediately after finishing soulkeepers the first in the series. I thought it was just as good as soulkeepers if not better. While it did have a slow start i feel that the book ended too soon but that just may be because i will go crazy waiting for the next book in this series.
    I love the story and how it was more involved with malini. I hope henry has alarger role in the next book because although he didi not come in till the end, aside from jacob and malini he is now my favorite character from this book.
