There are so many things going on that you need to be able to concentrate solely on this book to give it the attention it deserves. It's like one of those movies where you can't risk looking away for a second or you will miss something. That said, you want to trust me on this: it's worth it.
For a teenager, Jacob is a strong character. He is well developed, as are all the characters, with all the flaws and quirks necessary to make him become real. He has a very strong sense of self and loyalty. He is a kid who knows who he is and he refuses to let anybody change that. Even in the small town atmosphere that he finds himself in. When he is taken from his home in Hawaii and forced to live with his Uncle in Paris, Illinois, Jacob has to adapt to an entirely new way of life. Not only is he living with relatives that he never even knew existed but he also has to leave island life far behind. No more sand and sea, casual attitudes and acceptance of his differences. Here his differences are glaringly obvious and he's not allowed to forget it.Jacob also slowly becomes aware of the fact that he is different in other ways too. Ways that aren't quite....normal. In a quest to figure out who...or what....he is, and his quest to find his missing mother, he is brought together with Dr. Silva and they have adventures quite unlike anything I have read before.
Even the secondary characters, Malini (I loved this character), Uncle John, Dr.Read more ›
Miles from his home in Hawaii, living with relatives that he never even knew existed, the dreams still come to him night after night. And now he's having them about his neighbor across the street. A woman who appears to float more than walk and who doesn't need shoes even in the dead of winter.
Already an outcast at his new school, all he wants is to find out what happened to his mom and go home. But with no money and no leads there will be no quick escape for him from the small town of Paris, Illinois. And when he is pushed to the limits one too many times, Jacob learns a secret about himself that makes him question who he really is and if his dreams are more than just fantasy.
With no one else to turn to, Jacob is tempted to accept the offer of help from his mysterious neighbor, Dr. Silva. But he has a feeling that she is keeping secrets from him and her help comes at a price. One that even for finding his mother just might not be worth paying.
The Soulkeepers is an utterly spellbinding, elaborate and spectacularly written young adult novel by author G.P. Ching. From its very first words - "Death lived up to Jacob's expectations" - the story will pull readers in and take them on an adventure as Jacob discovers abilities he never knew he had and tries to uncover the truth about his mother's whereabouts.
The story is equal parts paranormal mystery and epic adventure as Jacob learns about the importance of what he is and what his role is in the battle of good versus evil.Read more ›
I usually try to stay away from books about fallen angles and religion. Not because I'm not religious myself, but because too many books seem to mock or contradict one religion or another in the process. I don't know if I would've read Soulkeepers had I known it was this kind of book but I ended up enjoying it. I think for me, it's best to ignore all the religious innuendos and just read it as a story. I can't do this with every book, but with Soulkeepers it was fairly easy to do.
The thing I enjoyed about this book was how easy it was to get into the story. It didn't slow down and there was always some mystery hanging in the air which kept me intrigued. I liked Jacob as a main character and found him to be a breath of fresh air. I don't always like reading about guys from their POV, mostly because I don't totally relate, but I liked Jacob's personality and it was easy to relate to him on some level and in turn like him.
I liked Malini and I'm certainly curious to find out what kind of role she'll play in the future. Overall, I enjoyed this story... don't LOVE the whole religious aspect of it (this is again my person preference) but as a story it was good.
Jacob Lau and he's mom are in a car crash, he's Mom disappears and he is the only one found in the car. He moves from Hawaii to Illinois with family he has never meet.
He meets a love intrest in Malini and the book does a good job of showing what life is like in a small town. I am not getting into the main plot in this review because I want you to read it. I got it when it was free, but at .99 Cents this book is a steal.

Starts off really well. The title has promise, the concept has promise. The last third of the book has some forced religious tones though that detracted from the story some though.Published 9 days ago by Renate Cochran
