Expected publication: September 9th 2015
In Soul Corrupted, the sequel to Soul Crossed, life in Heaven isn’t all “happily ever after” for Josh and Grace. Now Guardian Angels, they are entrusted with finding and saving the next potential Antichrist. But Grace is consumed with worry about her family, which is dealing with the aftershocks of her death. She’s particularly concerned about her brother Noah, who has turned down a dangerous path of drugs and violence—and she’s frustrated by the rules of Heaven, which forbid her from contacting them.
Josh has troubles of his own. A former Demon, he questions his ability to guide troubled souls to the light. When he discovers that Noah made a deal with Lucifer and has even been hanging around with Josh’s old Demon pal, Keira, he makes a forbidden counter-deal with the Devil to save Noah’s soul. Josh’s side of the bargain? He has to sever his relationship with Grace.
Josh and Grace’s world is about to spin out of control, testing the limits of true love and blurring the border between Heaven and Hell.
(Soul Corrupted was sent me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.)
I can’t say that I liked the first book, Soul Crossed, but I’m amazed by how much I didn’t hate this sequel. I still wasn’t super into the characters but I felt like because Josh and Grace’s relationship was already a done deal, there was some room for a little bit of character development.
I liked the plot of this book so much more then the first one even though this one was still a little blah. There was still a bunch of teen angst and “testing the limits of true love” but I felt this I could deal with it much better in Soul Corrupted.
I’m still not 100% on this series but I did find myself liking Soul Corrupted way more than I thought I would. I think this series would be good for readers who aren’t very critical and are just looking for a quick read.
