Awaken (The Soulkeepers #2) By Lori Adams

Awaken: The Soulkeepers - Lori Adams


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.




Ok let’s start off with that I liked this book a lot more than the first. Except that some of the dialog is till kind of childish at times, funny but childish. The book starts a couple weeks after the last one finished. We learn fairly early in this book that there was a demon spy all in book one. Wow. Want to know who??  Well read the book …lol

Sophia is doing a lot of growing up this book and starting to become her own person, I also liked that she no longer doubts herself to her abilities as much as she used to. She is eager to start her training to be a spirit walker and super excited, but Michael the person she most cares about doesn’t want her to do it , because of the danger involved. That can cause some problems between the two.

On top of that Dante crawled back out of hell and this time he is not messing around and will do anything to drag Sophie with him back to hell.  

I liked Sophie and her strength, she is a nice character.

I loved Michael in the first book but he really is getting on my nerves in this book. While I could understand his point of view most of the time, I thought he was just selfish. Which is an odd trait for a guardian angel.

Dante is the same old Dante as the first book just more aggressive in his goal. I still didn’t care for him.

The ending was just awesome and cruel at the same time .OMG , makes me wish the third and last book was out already. I will for sure read the third book.

Over all it was a great book, filled with action and twist and turns and I enjoyed it a lot.


I give it 4 ½
