Any chance Krista Miller had at a normal teenage life is now gone. Less than a year ago she lived under the radar, avoiding any relationships that would send her emotional sensitivities out of control. Little did she know that her life was destined for something more. Something that will test her very soul.
After facing certain death at the hands of the man responsible for their mysterious past, Krista and her friends learn the truth behind their origins and the purpose for their newly discovered abilities. Now, they must band together to fulfill their inherited, sacred duty. As Guides and Protectors, they must save Mankind's Forgotten Souls before they are lost forever.
"That is why the light created you," he said, indicating us. "You can stop
him and delay a battle between Heaven and Hell before humanity is ready
for it. Some day that battle will be inevitable, but until that day, we rely on
our Guides and Protectors to protect humanity."
*Inhales deeply* All of the things flying through my mind right now and I am having a hard time getting them to settle. Tiffany King packs a powerful punch in this one and I mean it sent me reeling and trying to grasp what was happening. This is the second book in the Saving Angels series and it does not disappoint at all. It stands beside its predecessor and says "I am every bit as awesome as you are!" There is a lot of amazing packed between the covers of this book and not a moment of it is dull or boring.
Upon picking this up you will be thrust right back into the world of Links(description for the connected pairs). Tiffany did not skip a beat when she started this one and made sure that she got right back to the characters. The characters that you grew to love in Meant to Be are all here and growing into more of a family than a group of friends. There is a warm and full feeling that fills the pages when these guys are together. They complete each other, even though they are each with their soul mate you know that things wouldn't be the same if they weren't a group.
There is a lot that happens in this novel. The Links learn more about what they can do and what their purpose truly is. Krista seems to embrace everything and learn it a little easier than everyone. She really seems to be growing into what she is and who she has become over the past little while. Her attachment to Mark, the other half of her is only growing stronger and sometimes their love flows right out of the book and blows me away. Their love no longer feels like the insta love that it once was but something stronger and more developed. I actually feel that they are one of the stronger YA couples out there.
There is also a lot more action in this book than in the last. Finding out what they can do means they can do it to make things better and take control. Like always though, the battle against evil is not an easy one. There is loss and heartbreak. Loss and heartbreak that will have you flipping back to make sure that you read it right and didn't just imagine what happened. The stakes are high and I was flying by the end of this one. I mean the pages couldn't turn fast enough.
Despite my current hardship with Angels Tiffany King's Forgotten Souls captivated me from start to finish. Her bold decision to bring in many new characters paid off and it created a much more high risk story. This proved to be a fast paced and heart tugging read. The action and everything else that fills these pages will have you racing out to get the next book!!
