Lori Adams gives New Adult a haunting paranormal twist with the first novel of The Soulkeepers, a series that blends ancient legends and new myths with an enchanting mix of thrills, humor, and high drama.

When Sophia St. James learns that she’ll be moving from Los Angeles to a podunk town somewhere in Connecticut for her senior year of high school, she isn’t expecting an otherworldly encounter. But there is more to Haven Hurst than meets the eye: it’s home to a family of Guardian Angels, and she is the only one who can see them in spirit form. Sophia soon realizes she wants to see much more of Michael, an irresistible yet volatile Guardian who seems drawn to her too.

As Michael battles his forbidden desire for the beautiful young newcomer, one of Hell’s most notorious Demon Knights arrives. Handsome and charismatic, Dante has come to claim the reincarnated soul of his lost lover trapped in Sophia. Cursed with the demon of Persuasion living inside him, Dante will use his seductive charms to lure Sophia into a dangerous game that ends with the kiss of death—unless Michael, who has captured Sophia’s heart, can now capture her soul.




After taking a couple of weeks to process this story, and talk about it with my close friends who have read it, I’ve come to conclusion that I really, really enjoyed this novel.

Aside from the similarities to other books I’ve read that annoyed me to no end, it was a fantastic read. The chemistry between the characters was good. The action scenes were non-stop. There is plenty of mystery behind each character, and the romance was swoon worthy. I read FORBIDDEN in one day because I just could not put it down. Even when I was frustrated and wanted to scream at the characters like a crazy women, I just could not stop reading. I was cooking and reading. Giving my kids a bath and reading. Watching TV and reading. I could not stop reading until the very last word.

I really enjoyed it! When you first start reading it you can sort of predict what would happen next, but once you reach the middle, the story completely changes. Every chapter pretty much surprised me. I cannot wait for the second book! I am happy I read it and in the end enjoyed it enough to look past my little issues with it. I think this book is going to be devoured by many.

It is labeled New Adult, but I can tell you right now IT IS NOT. Well, at least to me it wasn’t. This felt like a young adult novel one hundred percent.

A Good Choice for Reading! ;)
