Description from Goodreads:
Any chance Krista Miller had at a normal teenage life is now gone. Less than a year ago she lived under the radar, avoiding any relationships that would send her emotional sensitivities out of control. Little did she know that her life was destined for something more. Something that will test her very soul.
After facing certain death at the hands of the man responsible for their mysterious past, Krista and her friends learn the truth behind their origins and the purpose for their newly discovered abilities. Now, they must band together to fulfill their inherited, sacred duty. As Guides and Protectors, they must save Mankind's Forgotten Souls before they are lost forever.
I liked the first book in this series and was glad to be able to start the second book soon after. One thing I'm really liking about this series is that the books fit super well together. The ending of the first book went well with the beginning of this one, and I didn't feel like I was being reminded boringly of everything I'd read in the book before.
I liked seeing what came next for the characters, and still really adore Mark. I am quite fond of Shawn now, as well. even though he does use the word "sis" a lot, he was funny and I like funny. Krista was still too sensitive for my liking for most of this book, but she is getting better. Oh, and Haniel. At first, I did not like him. He was boring and info-dumpy. But I'm not going to lie--the dude's growing on me.
There were a bunch of new characters in this one, which was cool, but also very hard to keep track of. I got confused more than once with this. Was there two Pauls? And who matched up with who? The couples were cute and sweet and I enjoyed them, I just would have liked for them to have been differentiated better so I could tell who was who easier.
This is NOT one of those filler book 2's, which I was happy to see. The plot went farther and made sense to me. And the ending? It was sad, but it was my favorite part. It made me FEEL more than any other part in the whole book, and it's where I felt Krista started to stand for herself a bit. It also left me very much looking forward to the third book in this series.
Overall, I enjoyed Forgotten Souls just as much as I did Meant to Be and look forward to moving on in the series. I love the sweetness and the good direction (most of) the characters are going in. Plus, I have quite a few questions that I'd like answered and quite a few worries to be eased. So...onto book 3 I go!
