Book Review: Devotion (Book 3 of Soul Savers Series) by Kristie Cook

Hi! Thanks for stopping by :)

I was super excited to be offered the opportunity to be one of the first people to read Devotion by Kristie Cook and review it as part of her Devotion Blog Tour

The blurb on the back of the book:
With powerful abilities gained from the Ang’dora and Tristan back by her side, Alexis thinks she’s ready for the next challenge— protecting her son from what appears to be the inevitable. But she has so much to learn about her powers, her new world and the people in it. Nothing is what it seems to be on the surface, including the Amadis.

Power-hungry politicians comprise the council and make impossible demands. A traitor lurks among them all, inciting trouble that could destroy the Amadis and, ultimately, humanity. The Daemoni wreak havoc in the human world, with the ultimatum that they’ll continue attacking innocents until Alexis and Tristan are expelled from the Amadis’ protection. The couple’s own society begins to shut them out. But that’s not all.

Someone’s keeping a secret. A big one. Faith and hope in Alexis and Tristan will be restored if she can uncover the truth in time.

But the search for answers leads only to the discovery of more betrayals by those closest to Alexis. Her devotion is put to the test—devotion to her husband, to her family, to her people and to her beliefs—leaving her to question whom she’s fighting for and why she should even bother. But if she won’t fight . . . who will?

Needless to say I'm a huge fan of the Soul Savers series, it's not often you find a series that captures your imagination so completely. I fell head over heels for the main characters, Tristan and Alexis in the first book of the series, Promise and that was it for me... I was hooked. I have laughed and cried along with them ever since.

What I have found incredibly wonderful about Devotion (and the series in general) is that what started off as what I thought would be purely a love story, has evolved into an exhilarating adventure as well. In Devotion... sh!t gets real! Like really  real!  There's intrigue, betrayal, love and loss. This story has it all and I am loving it!

So if you're new to Kristie's work and love a good paranormal story, I can not recommend the Soul Savers series highly enough. Personally I recommend starting with Promise & Purpose, then take a history lesson with the prequel, Genesis and then dive into Devotion. This series gets better with every book!

Need more convincing? Perhaps the trailer to Promise will be the additional tidbit to entice you ;)

If you're up to date with your Soul Savers reading then you will not be disappointed with Devotion! I loved Promise & Purpose but the story development in Devotion is FANTASTIC!!!!! I can not wait to see where this story is going :)
