Book Review ~ Unforgiven: A Soulkeepers Novel by Lori Adams


Unforgiven: A Soulkeepers Novel
by Lori Adams
Expected publication: April 21st 2015 by Flirt 

Otherworldly desire and paranormal action reach new heights in the final installment of The Soulkeepers. As Sophia St. James moves Heaven and Hell to claim her destiny, questions are answered, secrets are revealed—and immortal love is tested.

After finally becoming a powerful Spirit Walker, Sophia St. James is shocked to discover that her conjured identical twin, Ka—along with her soul—have been dragged down to Hell by the relentless Demon Knight Dante. Sophia tries to hide the crisis, but there is little hope of keeping any secrets from her red-hot Guardian Angel. Growing suspicious, Michael has been making plans of his own that will bind him and Sophia together forever.

But Sophia is plagued with evil visions through Ka’s experiences in Hell. She is terrified that Dante will discover he has taken the wrong Sophia. Desperate to return to her original state before she withers away and dies, she risks everything to go where Michael can’t follow. To bring back Ka and save her own soul, Sophia must now enter the gates of Hell.

Before I even begin, I want to thank Random House Publishing and NetGalley for providing me the opportunity to review this amazing book! The first two installments of the Soulkeepers saga have been so amazingly epic; you can’t even imagine the happiness that filled my heart when I was able to get my hands on an ARC of Unforgiven.  Was it everything I expected it to be?  Oh my, YES - plus so much more than I could ever hope for.

Let’s touch on the cover before I dive into my thoughts.  The covers for the first two books in the Soulkeepers series have been beautiful, but this one?  I absolutely LOVE it!  So dark, but yet you know there is about to be an amazing love story between two people.  But who will win Sophia’s heart, Dante or Michael?

Now, on to my thoughts.

The action starts off right where Awaken left off and Sophia has gotten herself in quite a mess.  Her soul has been ripped from her and placed in her double, Ka, who just happens to be in hell with Dante.  Sophia has to keep this a secret because, well who would want a Spirit Guide without a soul helping you cross over? 

Dante is happy as he can be because he believes Sophia finally remembers her past life and the love they had for each other.  As he plans for their life together in Hell, he is totally clueless on what is really going on.  Ka doesn’t help matters any, because she is remembering the love that was lost and now believes she will have everything her heart desires, including power.

In Awaken, I will be the first to admit that Michael really did piss me off, but this time around, he redeemed himself.  He now understands that Sophia needs to be her own, unique self and he is 100% on her side and supporting her just as she deserves.  Yet, there is still that little problem that is preventing them to be together – guardian angels are forbidden from loving humans.  Will love conquer all?  Well, just read this amazing story to find out!

Just when I thought that Lori Adams couldn't possibly improve what was already perfection, she showed once again what an amazing writer she is by exceeding my expectations – and believe me, they were high.  Unforgiven is so uniquely captivating and so utterly compelling I really had to struggle to put this book down.  With tons of action, hot romance and characters you can’t help but love and love to hate, Unforgiven is a definite must read that I would highly recommend to any fans of paranormal romance.

5 stars
