Destroyed – Book 2 in the Soul-Keeper Series by L.A Starkey

Destroyed (Soul Keeper, #2)Destroyed by L.A. Starkey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Destroyed is book 2 in the Soul Keeper fantasy series, it’s a YA read but very suitable for adults too. In the first book we met Sam an adopted teenager. She’s had dreams with a couple of love interests who have recently appeared at her local school. Her best friend has just died in a traffic accident and she’s finding it really hard to come to terms with this, whilst she’s been given an interesting book about a prophecy and the Greek Gods. It all seems rather vaguely familiar to her but Sam can’t quite put her finger on it and she has a lot of questions.

In book 2 the story continues, Sam accepts Marcus and Nicholas into her life, she has been told that she is their Soul Keeper and that they are all about to live out the prophecy which looks like it may have a tragic ending unless they can find an alternative. There may just be one spark of hope as the teenagers head off on a trail to find a lost exit clause.

The author does a really good job of helping the reader get their heads around all the complicated relationships between the Greek Gods, all the sons, daughters, half sisters, cousins, nephews etc that Greek history has thrown at us. I like the pace of the book and the love triangle is intense and tantalising. This book ends on a cliff hanger which will have fans screaming NO!!! But book 3 is now available so that shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
