The good news is that Weaving Destiny was definitely worth it. It was every bit as fun as its predecessor. I loved the changing POVs between Jacob and Malini. The story line is definitely getting more intense and more characters are being introduced.
I really like G.P. Ching's writing style. I feel like a lot of YA fantasy novels are overly wordy and could definitely use some cropping, but I definitely didn't feel this way with Weaving Destiny. I was absolutely shocked when I finished the book. It was so smooth and the story flowed so well.
As another reviewer mentioned, I am also surprised that this series isn't more popular! If you are a fan of YA fantasy, I definitely recommend giving this series a try...make sure to start with #1 though.

What I love about these books is that while the author does choose a main character to focus on, she doesn't exclude the other characters. They're all still a part of the same story...only you're allowed more insight into particular characters. Not only that but you actually CARE to know more about these characters. I've read books that have done this multiple character thing ony to fall short by dedicating each book in the series to a separate character entirely or choosing to focus on side characters we never got to really know or care about. This series does the whole multiple character thing perfectly.
Like I said...this book is about Malini. You learn a lot more about her and her family as well as her frustrations at being, so far, the weakest link in the Soulkeeper circle they have. Along comes Mara, another soulkeeper, and Malini's insecurities are added to the mix. Malini knows Mara has her eyes set on Jacob, what she doesn't know is whether he feels the same. This is also the book where we find out exactly who Malini is and that Watchers are not their only enemy. Jacob's cousin, Katrina, also plays a bigger role in this book than she has before.
Ok, so first of all...obviously there is going to be some drama in this book with the whole Jacob-Malini-Mara love triangle going on. The author executes this drama perfectly. It doesn't go on too long, it's not dragged out to where I'm thinking 'Omg I get it...enough already...', and I don't feel like emotions are forced just to keep the drama going. All the emotions make sense, the reactions make sense and through this whole thing we get to know Mara as her own person and not just some girl trying to come between Malini and Jacob.
More often than not I've read books where the author has his or her characters overreact to certain things another character says or does and I get the feeling that is done in order to keep the drama going and to keep the readers gripped. Or an author will have his or her characters almost completely swallowed up by their insecurities so that they are oblivious to obvious (banging my head against the wall obvious) hints from their partner in the whole romantic-drama dance. G.P. Ching is a talented enough writer to not have to rely on cheap tricks like that and as a result of that talent, everything is completely believable and real. Because of that talent he does not have to sacrifice the integrity of his characters.
Great book in an amazing series.
SPOILER ALERT--Possible plot lines alluded to.
I am anxiously awaiting the next in the series to answer "Who is/was Henry, and how do his actions reflect on the upcoming battle?" "Will all the souls of Nod ever be released? (Why didn't Jason flood the place thoroughly in book 1 and take them with them-but then there wouldn't be such an interesting story to follow in books 2 and subsequent!)And are they the previous Soulkeepers that have vanished? If they are, will they die once brought out of Nod, or will they return to their previous duties?" "what has happened to Phillip's sister (she has the same last name so I believe she is his sister)?" "What is Dane's role?" "Does Katrina have a bigger part to play or is she a minor character? One of the red-shirts like in Star Trek?" "Who are the other Soulkeepers and what are their gifts? How do they build up their ranks?"
So many questions and it looks like a whole year to wait for the answers!

Following on very quickly after 'The Soulcatcher', 'Weaving Destiny' opens up the arena so that the action can move beyond small town Paris, Illinois.
Jacob's Mum, Lillian, is back in his life.
Jacob's resentful cousin, Katrina, has her part to play.
Jacob's erstwhile enemy, Dane, has become a friend and ally.
Gideon and Dr Silva are here too along with some new and intriguing characters.
The real star of this book is Malini. She comes to prominence as she struggles to discover who she is.
Don't worry - no spoilers here!)
There are surprises - perhaps the best being the ones the teenagers discover about their forebears. Maybe parents know a thing or two after all!
I think my favourite quotes are:
'Destiny is not a place that we navigate to like a pinpoint on a map. Destiny is a fabric woven from our choices. It is the cloak we wear every day and the shroud that covers us in our death. You can't wait for destiny to find you. You make it yourself.' (Jim Gupta, Malini's father.)
'Destiny is a fabric woven from our choices. (Malini)She thought about the sari she'd worn on the other side, made out of the experiences of her ancestors. In a way, all of their choices had helped her. All of their lives had created who she was and given her guidance when she needed it most.'
I loved this book, I read it in one day. I'm off to read 'Return to Eden'. I can't wait to find out what happens next...
There is a little sexual tension running through the book which is needed as I think teenagers are horney little buggers, plus if you'd been kept apart from your soul mate for hundreds of years you'd have some serious tension too!
All in all a great book with a great storyline and characters, definitely recommend! You must start at the beginning of the series though.
