Josh lived a reckless, selfish life, so upon his death, escaping the eternal torments of Hell by assuming the role of a powerful, soul-corrupting demon is an easy choice. His first soul assignment doesn’t seem too hard: the mortal Camden is already obsessed with weapons, pain, and torture. If only Josh wasn’t distracted by Cam's beautiful friend, Grace.
Grace never expected to die violently at age sixteen, but now she’s an Angel, responsible for saving a soul. She can already see past Camden’s earthly flaws, so the job should be be easy. If only that handsome, playboy Josh would stop getting in the way.
It’s forbidden for an Angel to be with a Demon, so if Josh and Grace stop resisting each other, the results would be disastrous.
And only one can claim Cam’s soul.
I had a mini debate in my head while deciding whether to join the book tour for this on or not, but I'm glad that my curiosity got the better of me because I enjoyed it.
Soul Crossed is about an Angel and a Demon both assigned to the same person, Camden, a man who is capable of causing the apocalypse. As time goes by, Josh and Grace get feelings for each other, but a love between an Angel and a Demon is forbidden, for obvious reasons.
Soul Crossed is the most unique apocalypse book that I've ever read mainly because it's not that dark. It's a pretty light read, and I found myself enjoying it well enough. I really liked how the story went and ended, and I liked the twist near the end.
On the other hand, what I didn't like about this book was that I felt like there was something missing, but I just can't point it out. Also, there were some grammatical errors here and there. For example, "put if off" instead of "put it off." Another is "You're girlfriend finding out" instead of "Your girlfriend." One more thing that I didn't like was the inconsistency of the information whereby for the most parts it said that Keira was 350 years old, but there was one part where it said that she was 250. That said, I must also consider that the copy given to me was an uncorrected proof
Overall, this book was a pretty enjoyable read in terms of the story, but there were small errors here and there. Although I think that those will be quite easy to fix.
