Unforgiven: A Soulkeepers Novel (The Soulkeepers Book 3) by Lori Adams
**I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review**
When Sophia St. James drove into the town of Haven Hurst, Connecticut for the first time, she knows that she is meant for something bigger. Of course, seeing an otherwise invisible Michael Patronus and his family tending to people on a spiritual level that have been involved in a car crash, that helped push her over the precipice of believing in the unbelievable. Now, she is a Spirit Walker, in a secret love with Michael – who is a Guardian turned Halo warrior, and she’s also in a whole heap of trouble. To concentrate on her Spirit Walker training, Sophia found an ancient spell that could split herself in two, or create a twin of sorts, whom she refers to as Ka. The only problem is that the Demon Knight Dante Dannoso has managed to convince Ka, who he thinks in the real Sophia, to descend into Hell with him – which he revels in bringing what he believes is an unawakened Spirit Walker to Hell where they can use her powerful Chelsea Light for evil instead of good. In the meantime, the real Sophia feels the moment when her other half descends…her soul Taken to the depths of Hell. In a moment, Sophia feels everything she’s worked for breaking apart – she is forced to lie to Michael and his family, her Ascended Master Rama, and her father. Seeing as Rama was a part of her soul splitting trick, he guesses at what has happened, but she is still left in a seemingly impossible situation – needing to go into Hell to collect Ka and her soul, but having no way to do it without facing certain death. When the truth is a life or death decision, and people you thought you could trust turn out to be someone else all together – will love be enough to put Sophia back together?
I am in true awe of Ms. Adams and The Soulkeepers book series. Some may think it just another “angels and demons” story, but it so much more! It’s about loving and trusting, living and being content…most of all, it’s about the power of true love what can be accomplished is only you believe in it. Seeing all the rise and falls between every single relationship in the story was amazing and complex – they change so often, sometimes I had to stop in admiration of how Ms. Adams was able to direct so many emotions in so many directions in so few pages. Her talent for writing about the true meaning of love – willing to risk your own life to save those you love – really shows true and hits the mark. This was an amazing end to an amazing series – I’m sad to see the end, but so pleased to have gotten to be on this awesome roller coaster of a series.
