Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“Does it matter, Josh? Isn’t Grace more important than anything?”
This was an okay story, but I didn’t like it as much as the first book in the series.
Grace and Josh were all over the place in this book, lying, doing things they shouldn’t be doing, manipulating people, and generally not behaving the way they did in the first book. There was also a distinct lack of romance between the pair of them, which was a real shame.
The storyline in this just didn’t live up to the storyline in the first book for me. The pace was too slow, and there just wasn’t enough excitement. The lack of romance was disappointing too, and the twists didn’t seem to have quite the same impact unfortunately.
Things were all turned upside down by the end of this book, and I do want to read book 3, I just hope it is more like book 1 though.
