`Save My Soul' by K.S. Haigwood, Matthew Rush and Jordan Sullivan
on August 10, 2012
'Save My Soul' is a story about a young woman who finds herself in a hospital after a repelling accident that nearly kills her. She discovers that she is on Adam Chamberlain's operating table. After the surgery, she is contacted by her guardian angel. He is ready to take her to heaven, although he is not alone. The guardian angel of her handsome surgeon came along for the ride.
Adam's guardian angel offers Kendra, the protagonist, a deal. If she can help with Adam's salvation, she will get a second chance at life. The fact that there are guardian demons around to block her efforts, will not stop her from giving it everything she's got. If she is unsuccessful, she will spend eternity keeping the hell fires burning. The catch is that she only has one week in which to do it.
This book grips you at the start, as this very unique and stirring plot is unfolded. You meet Kendra's handsome and yet humanly flawed guardian angel, Adam's corrupt guardian angel and Adam's charming yet mischievous guardian demon. This demon becomes more than just a simple distraction for Kendra and while all this is going on, the book is almost impossible to put down.
Somewhere in the middle of the book, everything slows down. Our protagonist is a photographer and there is quite a bit of activity regarding her work that appears to be pretty irrelevant to the story. Although it does make notice of her expertise and passion for her work, the fire and excitement dies considerably. This segment eventually ends and the story picks back up again but there is yet another hurdle. Without giving too much away, because the reader knows so little about Adam, it is difficult to identify with the relationship he has with Kendra.
That being said, it is a fun read. It is understandable that the guardian angels may play it fast and loose while in human form and why shouldn't they? Humans certainly do. It is witty and charming and will certainly make you laugh and smile as you travel through Kendra's journey. The end of the book will certainly keep you hanging on for the resolution and when it does end, you may be wishing she chose someone else. I give this book 3 out of 5 stars, only because I prefer a faster read. But the reviews are good, stop by and take a look.
