9781467958899_p0_v3_s260x420Soul Quest by Amy Maurer Jones

Do you remember how horrified you were about the idea of attending high school? I remember ticking off those last miserable days of my summer vacation following my eighth grade year. Maybe you don’t, maybe you were one of those people. You know who I’m talking about, people like Melissa Small, the distinguished District Attorney, Larry Small’s daughter. She’s popular, gorgeous and absolutely terrifying to someone like Liv Glyn. No, Liv is far from measuring up to the standards required to make Melissa’s crowd. She’s not even close. Liv is just a simple man’s daughter, mostly tolerated by her peers. If this isn’t depressing enough for you, stay tuned, it gets worse.

Liv was commanded with Spirit at birth by the Great Spirit, Hala. I know, it sounds crazy but it’s true. If you think it’s difficult to be a teenager, try being a teenager who was born destined to save the world from soul sucking Daevas and their mutant progeny Aengels. There are four of them. Liv’s companions of Spirit are Laith Lightfoot, Brayan Akin and Meena Sodden.
