They say a soul is the immaterial essence, the animating principle, the actuating cause of an individual life.
But what if you had to share yours with the one person you hated the most?
The soul mate principle states that for every one soul there is another that will recognize its match, hence creating the perfect union.
But what if you had two soul mates, which would you choose?
What if your choices had eternal ramification?
Deceived, the debut novel in the Soul Keeper Series, is a modern day love story about the implications of having more than one soul mate, and having to choose between the two of them. The decisions of the gods has left the next generation, their heirs, torn between fate and reality, and the balance of the future hangs in anticipation of what’s to come.
Deceived is the first book in the new Soul Keeper series. The story centers around a confused teenage girl, who is unknowingly the center of a prophecy. She thought she had a rough life growing up, and my guess is it’s going to get a lot tougher. As a pawn to the gods, she is caught between two soulmates who are both incredibly gorgeous. Who wouldn’t want that? Well, that is until you realize the price that has to be paid to connect with your soulmate.
An interesting tale that at times seemed to drag a little. It was definitely just the beginning of the story to come. However, it was extremely touching and at times brought tears to my eyes. I was slightly disappointed because it ends with a bit a cliffhanger, but it also had enough of a twist for me to want to read more. Definitely an enjoyable read that has caught my attention.
