Everyone has a soul mate. But what do you do when your soul mate would rather give his soul to the demons than be with you?
Seventeen-year-old Erin has a problem. Seth has been hers forever, but now an ancient curse is tearing him away. And the demons who invoked it will stop at nothing – even murder – to claim him as their own.
How can she win against a curse so binding that it has damned countless others to this same fate – an eternity alone?
The answer lies in the past. To find it, Erin and Seth must risk all, traveling back in time to a dangerous world where love is forbidden, and life – and death – hang on a pledge.
Follow Erin and Seth as they travel to ancient Shenaya and face the curse that has plagued their families for millennia. Caught in a war between the Angelic Guardians and the Gefallen, the disembodied dead, they must fight to keep their souls in tact and their love untainted.
This was a very interesting book. It has some intriguing ideas. I like the premise that our souls have full and complete lives, before we are born, and that each of us is paired with a soul mate, that we may or may not meet in our mortal lives. There is an ancient war among the dead going on, and on one side are the Guardians (if you choose this side, you get to be with your soul mate forever after death), and on the other side are the Gefallen (if choose this side, you end up damned.) This story is an action packed, quick, and easy read. Seth and Erin, who meet because their siblings just got married, turn out to be soul mates, and a part of the war between Guardians and Gefallen. They are quickly sucked into the drama of choosing sides, and fighting against evil. AND, they are pulled into the past, into a place called Shenaya, where they see how all of their soul friends lived their mortal lives, and how it affects the war. Unfortunately they cannot change the past, no matter how much it pains them to see what their friends are going through. Thoroughly enjoyable, I would be interested in reading more from the Soul Wars Saga.
What about you guys? Do you believe in soul mates?
