REVIEW: Awaken by Lori Adams
Sophia St. James has every reason to be happy: she survived the kiss of death from the seductive Demon Knight Dante and is free to be with Michael, her sexy Guardian Angel. She eagerly begins her Awakening to become a Spirit Walker and help lost souls cross over. But her training is fraught with setbacks, and Michael begs her to stop. The life of a Spirit Walker is far too dangerous, and he won’t be able to protect her.
Then Dante returns, threatening to drag Sophia to Hell so they can finally be together. Terrified of losing everything she has worked for, Sophia turns the tables on Dante, luring him into a deception that may get them both killed. The stakes climb even higher when Dante’s ally, Wolfgang, emerges from Hell with one order: kill Sophia. Will Michael once again be Sophia’s saving grace or will the Awakening give her the power she needs to save herself?

Thank you first off to Random House and NetGalley for providing us with a copy of this book so we could bring you this review.
This is the second book in the SoulKeepers Series. We are back in Haven Hurst where Sophia and Michael are still hiding their love for each other and dealing with his being an Angel and her being a human. The couple also struggle to deal with the fact that Michael doesn't want Sophia to become a Spirit Walker, and Sophia is struggling with the fact that her training hasn't begun. But they don't know that while they are trying to deal with these things Dante is working hard to escape from Hell's Death Chamber.
I do have to say that this book is a bit more exciting then the first in that it does have more action and more things going on in it. The struggle between good and evil isn't as prominent in this one as they were in the first one, but Sophia's desire to be a better person and help others. While in this story Sophia and Michael still love each other, they do end up separating. Both wanting such different things. Again this book is not so much about Michael and Sophia's relationship as much it is about Sophia's growth in the spiritual world.
My one and only complaint in the second book is the way that Lori Adams leaves it... So this is your warning it will leave you in a cliff hanger, itching and waiting for the next book to come out.
Happy Reading... Adri
