When fifteen-year-old Jacob Lau is pulled from the crumpled remains of his mother's car, no one can explain why he was driving or why the police can't find his mother's body. Made a ward of his uncle and thousands of miles from home, a beautiful and mysterious neighbor, Dr. Abigail Silva, offers to use her unique abilities to help him find his mom. In exchange, she requires Jacob to train as a Soulkeeper, a gifted warrior charged with protecting human souls. He agrees to her demands, desperate for any clue to the mystery of his mother's disappearance. But soon Jacob finds himself trapped in a web of half-truths, and questions Dr. Silva's motives for helping him.

Christian, Texan, electrician, lover of reading-I lean towards Sci-fi/fantasy but enjoy the classics, history, and science titles also.
I would burn one of my words on signifying the age level for this book. My next would be used to classify it and my last word would explain my enjoyment. Teenager, supernatural, captivating.
Besides the obvious main character I really liked Abigail. Her beauty, wisdom, and mystery was very intriguing.
Kafer was able to make his voice sound like and match what I thought each character should feel like. He really hit the mark in my opinion.
There are several scenes throughout the book that made me empathize with Mr. Lau and invoked such emotion as anger, vindication, or relief. I never shed a tear nor did I laugh out loud.
All in all I enjoyed this book and may even check out the next one.
Exciting Paranormal Adventure
I loved the angels/ fallen angels & the lessens of angels & demons & god.
Jacob Lau is my favorite character. Maulani is a good 2nd fav. Gideon & Dr Silva were pretty awesome too!
A paranormal sci fi world filled with angels vs fallen angels.
I enjoyed listening to this book! It was quite an education as far as angels both good & bad. I loved all the voices the narrator did. Jeffrey Kafer made the story much more enjoyable with the added voices & emotions and excitement! I was really glad to see Mom found too! I found the story Katrina said as to why the family name changed from Laudner to Lau was pretty sad. Kuddos to both the author & the narrator for making this story so enjoyable! I read this in 1 sitting straight thru! It was that good!
This book has a decent plot concept, but as an adult with a son just about to enter his teen years I found myself wondering why I didn't just go listen to him complain about why things weren't fair. Assuming the target audience is teenagers the book probably works, the teenagers find true love at the age of 15 and find out they have super powers, but they ticked off the Fallen Angels who will be back to get them. I've no doubt the teenagers will triumph over Fallen Angels who have done battle with thousands over the millennia and won every battle until they met they two outsiders in Hickville USA.
This was a Daily Deal and the narrator does a good job, these are the reasons I won't be asking for my money back.
