Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

{September 18, 2011}   {Review} Forgotten Souls by Tiffany King (The Saving Angels #2)

From Goodreads: 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.

King has done it again in this riveting sequel to Meant to Be!  I was immediately drawn into the story as it picks up where Meant to Be left off, continuing the tale I fell in love with only a few short months ago.  King’s novels have very quickly become my top reads this year, and I am excited for, and anxiously awaiting, more work by this genius author. 

 All the wonderful characters are back in this sequel, giving the reader more of Krista and her beau Mark, along with an array of new characters as Krista and her friends delve deeper into their roles as protectors and guides.  This novel kept me on the edge of my seat as Krista, Mark, and the gang learn to harness their powers and protect each other in the face of evil, a very serious evil that is bent on demolishing the bonds between the guides and their protectors forever.  Much darker than Meant to Be, King has created a novel in which the reader isn’t sure whether good will triumph over evil, leaving the reader glued to the pages to find out what happens next. 

The. End. Killed. Me.  Seriously, although there was foreshadowing along the way, I didn’t really think it would happen, and of course, King floored me with an ending that left me reeling and dying to get my hands on the next book in the series, especially as Forgotten Souls leaves the reader hanging. 

I highly suggest picking up a copy of Meant to Be prior to reading Forgotten Souls as the stories build off one another, so jumping right in to Forgotten Souls without reading the prequel may be quite confusing.  Read them both.  Five stars. 

I also recommend reading King’s short story in The Glassheart Chronicles, as it is a prequel to Meant to Be, giving the reader some interesting background on some of the characters and how the protectors and guides came to be.
