Promise Soul Savers #1 & Purpose Soul Savers #2 by Kristie Cook









Promise: Paperback368 pages

Published July 30th 2010 by Ang'dora Productions, LLC First published July 18th 2010)


From Goodreads:
Alexis Ames decides to learn who she really is, with or without the help of her mother, who guards their secrets closely. After meeting Tristan Knight and discovering that he s not normal either, the secrets begin to unravel. Their union brings promise to the future of mankind. But it also incites a dangerous pursuit by the enemy. Because they are a match made in Heaven and in Hell.

My Review: I loved this book. I could not read it fast enough. I read Purpose right after it. 

I could not read these books fast enough. Yes I finished them A LONG time ago. I have no clue why I did not post my review sooner. I think I went on book strike after I read these for a bit because they were so on my mind! Seriously...do not even start Promise unless you have Purpose sitting right beside you or you will be VERY UPSET with yourself. Now onto the book!

I love paranormal. I love ALL paranormal. I love ALL PARANORMAL that has hot characters in it. Guess what? YIP...you got it. This series has it all! This book made me sit on the edge of my seat the whole way through. Author Kristie Cook sucks you into her world and does not let you go. The world is built inside your head as you read each word, each page, each chapter.

Per the blurb on the back of the book "...are a match made in Heaven and in Hell". This book is incredible. The story unravels as Alexis finds out who she really is, who her mom really is and who her hot new boyfriend really is. Alexis is torn in a million different directions as what is right and what she wants are totally different things. There are some very intense and intimate chapters of this book (hot as hell if you must)!

As Alexis learns why she writes the stories she does, as she sorts through the lies and the new found truth, will she find out who she is meant to be or will she succumb to who she could be. The choice of Heaven and Hell has never been harder.

The characters in this book are so well rounded. They come to life on the pages. Author Kristie Cook makes you feel like you actually know them and you feel everything they feel.

It is hard to give this book a good solid review without spoilers. There is so much I want to say about it but I am unable to as you have to experience the book yourself.




Purpose:Paperback, 377 pages

Published December 15th 2010 by Ang'dora Productions, LLC (first published December 6th 2010)


From Goodreads: 
Lost in despair, Alexis teeters on the edge of an abyss, her lifeline of hope fraying into a thin thread. If it snaps, she’ll plunge into complete darkness. With the help of her son and her writing, she’s been able to hold on. Until now. Erratic impulses, disturbing delusions and her own demonic blood threaten her sanity. When she’s forced to choose between hanging onto hope or letting go to serve her Amadis purposes, she faces a decision with inconceivable sacrifices.

Alexis runs to the one place she thinks will provide answers, only to find herself at the center of another battle of good versus evil, not only with the Daemoni, not only within herself…but also against the worst opponent imaginable. But even if she wins, what will she lose?



MY REVIEW:
Purpose picked up where Promise left off so well. Again, I was SO GLAD I had it by my side when I finished Promise. I am EAGERLY awaiting Devotion in Feb 2011 and Genesis, a Novella available Oct 19th 2011 in ebook form!

Alexis is getting through life without the other half of her soul. Dorian keeps her busy and so does her writing. They keep her grounded and from falling over the edge completely.

This book was INTENSE! The imagination of author Kristie Cook is outstanding. I love the paranormal aspects that Author Kristie Cook brings to life not only in her book but through the writing of Alexis.

In Purpose, Alexis must find her PURPOSE. She must choose...Heaven or Hell. Happiness or eternal sorrow. Will the good in her overcome the demon blood or will the evil conquer all?

The action, love, devotion, back stabbing, friends, foes and everything in between is so prominent in this book. Alexis discovers a side of herself that she never knew existed. Boy is it one heck of a side too!!

When you have paranormal creatures of all types going up against each other, whose side do you think they will take? I PROMISE that PURPOSE will give you a thrill as you read to find out and more!!

(Again...I keep my reviews very spoiler free so I am holding a lot back on this review. I really highly suggest you read this ADULT series)!!!
