I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book gave angels and paranormal romance a little bit of a new twist. There was your typical good versus evil, some YA smoldering romance, and a good paranormal mystery setup.

Sophia lost her mother a few years ago and since then her father has been toting them from place to place. His pastor profession lends itself to the moves, but Sophia senses that something more must be wrong with their situation. She’s forced to be the new girl in yet another school, but there are definitely strange happenings in this town. Haven Hurst is inhabited by a family that always seems to be on the scene of accidents and other near death experiences and Sophia is determined to get to the bottom of it. It also doesn’t hurt that Michael, one of these “guardians” and her have some sort of connection that leads her to see him when she shouldn’t be able to.

Michael is an angel who is tasked with protecting humans. They’re supposed to be immune to feelings like desire and jealousy, but ever since meeting Sophia, he feels both in a way he never imagined. Their YA romance is filled with obstacles, but it wasn’t the type that makes me aggravated and anxious. Instead, I was actually rooting for these two to overcome the odds and end up together. This book is clearly the setup for a series and it completely has me hooked. We get answers, but not enough! I want to know all the secrets that lurk behind the mythos we’ve just been introduced to. I’ll be adding the rest of these books to my “to-read” list ASAP!

Review: 3.5 stars
General: Overall this was an entertaining YA read. I liked the creative spin that was given to the Angels in this book because it helped to set them apart from many other angels - in any genre and age group. However, the plot itself lacked much spunk. It was still a good read and I enjoyed the book but aside from Sophia's "power" it didn't offer anything different idea wise than any YA - girl comes to town, girl meets hot, popular boy and so forth. It was a well written story with compelling characters and an intriguing backstory but not the most entertaining front story.

The world building and characters in this book were top notch. I loved the concept of actual guardian angels - not so much how we meet Michael because Sophia's "position" at the paper felt very contrite and disbelievable. The overall idea was original and something I really enjoyed. Especially the invisibility element and Sophia's actual power. Also, Sophia was a great character. She was strong, mostly level headed and passionate. I loved her wit as well. Michael was a strong "teen" and I liked it. I also liked that a lot of the time he really was just a teen and acted accordingly.

I really am a fan of urban fantasy and paranormal romance, I used to have an entire website devoted to the genre, honestly it was the genre that renewed my love for reading in a way I hadn’t had in years. So every time I pick up a UF or PR book, I want to adore it, I want it to bring me back to that moment when I fell in love with reading again. Unfortunately, this book just didn’t work for me. I think the main reason why this book didn’t work for me is because it felt a whole lot more like young adult then new adult, and I am really hit or miss with young adult.

The problem with the fact that this book read more YA is that I feel like a lot of YA books are intentionally written in a manner that makes the characters in them feel superficial or dumbed down, like that lack complexity. I understand that when you marketing to younger audience, writing style is inherently going to be different, but at the same time I think I have aged too far out of this demographic for that to work for me in some cases.

Another problem I had with this book was that I felt a lot of the characters really started wondering into the too stupid to live category. There is nothing more that I hate in books when the main characters are TSTL, especially when they are female characters. It very well may be just a personal preference for me, but ultimately I like my female characters strong, flawed, but strong and intelligent.

Also this book is really big on insta-love. I kind of hate insta-love. I don’t mind instant lust, I mean come on everyone can identify with that happening to them at one time or another, but instant love is just so not believable, I liked the build up between characters, the getting to know each other because they fall in love, it makes the payoff so much better in the end.

This is the first book in the SoulKeepers series and I was pleasantly surprise on how much I enjoyed this book. This book had a different take on Angels and Demons. The way Lori Adams wrote this book there was so much more to both sides and it made everything seem so real. I mean a demon royal court. Awesome.

Sophia has been moving around a lot. Her father is a pastor and her mother has recently died. This moved meant getting away from her abusive ex-boyfriend. When she makes it to the new town she immediately finds herself immersed in this new town. Making friends, trying to catch up in school, and taking the picture for the local newspaper. Sophia was a pretty strong human being. I loved that she was really curious about what was happening around her. She didn’t let Michael’s surliness stop her from finding out what he was hiding.

Michael is a being born of light. Michael and his family are a guardian angels that protects the souls of Haven Hurst. When he first meets Sophia he knows something is different about her. She can see him in spirit form and he doesn’t know if that is a good or bad thing. Michael was such a stoic character. He was single-minded in his need to prove that Sophia was a demon or a test sent by the Halos. It actually took him a while to admit that he felt anything for Sophia and now he is battling emotions that no angel should feel. Jealousy and desire.

Dante is a royal demon house the demon knight persuasion. He is being sent to the surface to collect a soul but he ulterior motives. He wants to find his long lost love. He has traced her over centuries and has finally found her. In Sophia. Dante was a weird character for me. Dante and his band of demons were supposed to be evil and they were but nothing really happened with them either.
