Review of Soul Corrupted by Lisa Gail Green

In Soul Corrupted, the sequel to Soul Crossed, life in Heaven isn’t all "happily ever after" for Josh and Grace. Now Guardian Angels, they are entrusted with finding and saving the next potential Antichrist. But Grace is consumed with worry about her family, which is dealing with the aftershocks of her death. She's particularly concerned about her brother Noah, who has turned down a dangerous path of drugs and violence—and she's frustrated by the rules of Heaven, which forbid her from contacting them.

Josh has troubles of his own. A former Demon, he questions his ability to guide troubled souls to the light. When he discovers that Noah made a deal with Lucifer and has even been hanging around with Josh’s old Demon pal, Keira, he makes a forbidden counter-deal with the Devil to save Noah's soul. Josh's side of the bargain? He has to sever his relationship with Grace.

Josh and Grace's world is about to spin out of control, testing the limits of true love and blurring the border between Heaven and Hell.

Soul Corrupted is the second installment in Lisa Gail Green’s Of Demon and Angels series, which started with Soul Crossed.


Review:

I loved the first book so much! So, I knew the second installment would be awesome! I wasn't wrong! This was an excellent read!
I absolutely adore the characters. Grace and Josh are obviously my favorites, but I was kind of disappointed that there wasn't much romance in this book. That was actually my least favorite part of the book.
Kiera is growing on me. I know, I know, she's a demon. The author developed her character in this book, and she even has her own POV throughout the story. Noah, Grace's brother was a new addition too. He has his own POV too.
Okay, so I also don't love the multiple POV's. It seemed like there were too many to really get involved to an intimate level with any of them.
The multiple plots with the different characters was intriguing. It kept me flipping the virtual pages in quick succession. I was curious how each situation was going to be resolved.
The ending was a total shock! This book had a cliffhanger of all cliffhangers! Now, I can't wait to read the next book, coming next May.
Overall, this was a great young adult story. I highly recommend it. This book gets five glittery stars for it's interesting plot and a satisfying read.






Praise for Soul Crossed, Of Demons 

and Angels series, Book 1:

“Who knew evil could be so dreamy? Josh is a devilishly good-looking demon who leads the reader right into lust and temptation. Although Josh is the demon, it is Camden, the Anti-Christ, who will really have readers shivering from his devilish, sinister ways. The Mortal Instruments meets Romeo and Juliet in this title that’s jam-packed with love, chaos and heartbreak. Readers will have a hard time putting Soul Crossed down.” —Romantic Times 

"A wickedly romantic story that will have you cheering for Lisa Gail Green’s addictive storytelling. Soul Crossed is devilishly delicious!" —Martina Boone, author of Compulsion and the Heirs of Watson Island trilogy

“Soul Crossed blurs the lines between good and evil with addictive characters and a plot that will have you eagerly turning the pages.” —Kelly Hashway, author of the Touch of Death series



One Demon.

One Angel.

One Soul.

Josh lived a reckless, selfish life, so upon his death, escaping the eternal torments of Hell by assuming the role of a powerful, soul-corrupting demon is an easy choice. His first soul assignment doesn’t seem too hard: the mortal Camden is already obsessed with weapons, pain, and torture. If only Josh wasn’t distracted by Cam's beautiful friend, Grace.

Grace never expected to die violently at age sixteen, but now she’s an Angel, responsible for saving a soul. She can already see past Camden’s earthly flaws, so the job should be be easy. If only that handsome, playboy Josh would stop getting in the way.

It’s forbidden for an Angel to be with a Demon, so if Josh and Grace stop resisting each other, the results would be disastrous. 

And only one can claim Cam’s soul.


Review:

When I first got this book, I grabbed it for the Romeo and Juliet concept. It looked interesting and had that whole forbidden love going on. 

From the first page, I knew that this wasn't going to be just your ordinary young adult paranormal romance. You think there is going to be a love triangle, but you would be wrong. 

The characters were flawed but still had a strong sense of morality to them. The dynamic between Grace, Josh and Cam was well orchestrated. 

I was holding on until the last page, wondering how the author was going to bring the story together. Let me say, she doesn't disappoint. The book was fun, exciting, and refreshing. 

Overall, this was a great read. I recommend it for all lovers of the genre. Soul-Crossed gets five glittery stars for its fantastic story!








Coming March 16, 2016:
