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.
Man, I’ve seen some beautiful covers lately.. But this one needs a moment of appreciation. The cover designer for this series is amazing!
Soul Corrupted is the sequel to the amazing Soul Crossed (which I reviewed here). That review was quite a while back, so if you’ve been with me that long, you’ll remember that I really enjoyed Soul Crossed. It was a little tropey at times, but it totally pulled me right out of the reading slump I was in at the time. I don’t even know how it’s possible, but I actually liked Soul Corrupted a bit more. It had this…new level of darkness that the first book didn’t have. Of course, the first book had some definite dark moments, but Soul Corrupted has some serious “OH ^&^%” moments.. The stakes are even higher for Josh and Grace. I think that these high stakes brought out a feistier side in Grace that I really wanted to see in Soul Crossed. She’s actually becoming more of a fighter, which was an aspect of her personality that really started coming out at the end of Soul Crossed. There’s some definite character development for both Grace and Josh, which is great to see. I absolutely adored how supportive Josh was of Grace in this book. She’s going through a massively hard time with her brother spiraling downhill back in the land of the living, and Josh made a point of trying to help, even though he himself is still struggling with his own personal demons.
Soul Corrupted is a worthy sequel to Soul Crossed. I can’t wait for book three! Five out of five stars!
