Aug 08, Melanie rated it really liked it. I devoured this book as quickly as the first book of the trilogy and I am eagerly but not so patiently waiting on the final installment. Per the website, it looks like The Glassheart Chronicles is 2. Personally, I would love to read more stories about the Guardians and Elders. Glassheart Chronicles is 1.
Anyway, this book is darker and filled with more teenaged angst t I devoured this book as quickly as the first book of the trilogy and I am eagerly but not so patiently waiting on the final installment. Anyway, this book is darker and filled with more teenaged angst than the first. For me, it makes sense in the scheme of the story and it's typical for human life to experience difficult situations. These kids feel more mature than typical teenagers and sometimes, their reactions surprise me. This book is more mystical with the teens traveling to Arcadia, meeting Oracles and Spirits not introduced before, and also seeing someone unexpected.
They are beginning to grow up and they are getting stronger with their charms and gifts. I still feel the most connection with Liv but Beau really surprised me. Meena is a slight mystery to me because she is in the story but not always in the forefront or obviously contributing. It seems to be part of her character though, as her Guardian also hangs back. Can't wait to see how the story continues!

Dec 29, My Book Friend rated it liked it. Liv and Jedd still have a lot to figure out. While he knows about the world that is Laith, Brayan, Meena, and Livs' new reality While it is easier for Liv to not have to lie about her whereabouts, sometimes the right thing is the harder thing to do. It has a touch of everything, and I could even see boys reading this. It really Liv and Jedd still have a lot to figure out.
It really is a fluffy, light read. Overall, I think this book definitely has its flaws, but what book doesn't? I strongly stand by what is written above year olds. Recommend to those that don't mind just reading. Jul 27, Jamie rated it really liked it Shelves: The Guardians of Souls out did the first book in my opinion. Yes, she remembered Etheline's gruesome plight well. She remembered a dull gray face with charcoal for eyes framed with limp, orange, wiry hair.
All is well that ends well, she thought. Etheline glared at her. Etheline hated it when Avna referred to her as her pet. It was degrading to her. Has Shyam received confirmation from the humans yet? The stupid humans haven't even an inkling of suspicion about our kind. They will blame each other for this 'so called' tragedy. Afterward we can devour the aftermath, a buffet of souls practically served to us on a silver platter.
Not to mention four teenagers who are oracles who have unique gifts to help save the world form the evil Aengels and Daevas.
Amy Maurer Jones is a very talented writer. These four teenagers are well-developed and have great personalities, and the story is totally amazing. Liv is an Oracle of Earth. Brayan is an Oracle of W Soul Quest is an excellent read. Brayan is an Oracle of Wind. Laith is an Oracle of fire. And Meena is an Oracle of Water. These four also have to go to high school and yes, they also have the normal teenager problems to deal with.
Liv would love to be more than just friends with Jedd and Jedd wants to be a part Liv's Oracle world to help fight in the front lines with Liv. Liv wants to keep Jedd in back to be safe. That was fantastic to me that a girl was protecting a guy for a change. I also like how Jones gave a description of all the characters in the front of this book. That was very helpful to have this insight with this huge storyline. I also like the way Jones built the trust between the four teenagers. I recommend Soul Quest as a super great read.
Dec 29, My Book Friend rated it really liked it. Liv never knew she was really different until she went to high-school. She isn't a normal kind of different though. Meena, Brayan, and Laith are all strangely familiar It is much deeper. They all have the same purpose- to save the world. There really isn't much time left, and while nothing drastic has happened since September 11, it is easy to tell things are not looking good from here on out. And it is all up to a gr Liv never knew she was really different until she went to high-school. And it is all up to a group of teenagers.
While this book had a slow beginning, by the end I couldn't believe how fast it went. I loved all of the main characters of course besides the ones you really shouldn't like aside from Meena. There were a few times I was like, "She is such a know it all! Overall, great pacing, great story, and an ending that encourages you to read the next book. I enjoy the fact that it is not a mystery on where this story could go. May 09, ILoveBooks rated it it was amazing. This book is great. The author captures the true young adult voice and creates a teenage atmosphere.
The plot is intriguing and novel, the characters fresh and charismatic. The mystery moved the book along quickly with the romance being the added draw-in for the reader. This book wasn't a run-of-the-mill teenage romance, the plot prevents the reader from thinking that.

The main character easily endeared herself to the reader, the meddling supporting character provided a good foil for the main character as well as some comic relief. The background of the plot is both exciting and interesting, the reader will not be disappointed.
There is a bit of something for everyone: The ending was a little bit surprising to say the least, but this reader was happy to learn that there would be another book to come! This book is great for young adult readers. This book was received as an egalley, this in no way influenced my opinion. Jun 25, Cheri rated it it was amazing.

This quote from the description of the books sums it up really well I think: Apr 24, Lauren rated it it was amazing Shelves: Liv Glyn has a lot on her plate! It's her first day of high school, she only has one close friend, Jedd, that she wants to be more than friends with, she's running for vice president of the freshman class, and, oh yeah! Alright that was really corny but hopefully you understand what I'm getting at. I've been blessed with having a smart, in control, main character for the past two books I've read.
Liv Glyn, your narrator and one of four main characters was very lika Wow. Liv Glyn, your narrator and one of four main characters was very likable. I feel like she's that average girl that everyone could relate to, and that made me like her a lot. I could relate to her stress about being a freshman, and having to juggle so much things at once.
Well, not the human oracle part, but you get what I mean I really thought her relationship with Gaea, who's the Oracle of Life. I felt like Gaea was kind of a grandmother to Liv and the scenes were Liv who just lay under her shade were adorable. The other main characters, Laith, Meena, and Brayan, were also enjoyable to read about.
They were all unique in their own ways. Laith, being the popular athlete; Meena, the history geek; and Brayan, the technology obsessed brain. My favorite of the four had to be Meena. When things got bad for the kids, Meena was the one who calmed them down, mostly because of her gift of being a planner, always sorting out their problems and being the voice of reason.
All of the kids went to the same school, but were in different cliques, obviously. I liked the way the author got them all together. By doing the freshman elections, the human oracles were able to rely and trust one another, and become acquainted. It was very natural, and not forced at all. One of the things which I thought was soo cool was the fact that Amy put a dictionary of all the fancy lingo the characters used throughout the book. I didn't have to look at it a lot, since every was pretty self-explanatory, but for those books that go into different worlds and galaxies, maybe you wanna use this tip.
It clarifies things a lot when there are series books, and the readers forget. Here's a little tip to people reading the book: When I was first reading it, I was thinking, They're doing a second twin towers attempt? Yeah, it shoots back and forth between past and present.
As said above, it wasn't forced. It was actually very creative. They were born in , so they didn't go through it. It truly makes me feel that we are living in history, you know? Like yesturday's happenings could be in tomorrows textbooks. The book was great, a perfect set-up for the next book in the trilogy. Something else I liked was that the book starts with the characters already having their powers and their goals.
I really can't wait for the next book to see what happens next! I always have been. Mar 12, Evie rated it it was amazing Shelves: Soul Quest by Amy Jones totally made my week! Yesterday I ended up staying up till 4 am, just so I could finish it and find out how the first book ends.
I just couldn't bring myself to put it down. How could I possibly go to sleep, when this book is so amazing! And you must know that I am a very slow ebook reader, I really don't like spending my time looking at the computer screen or iPhone screen, depending if I'm currently outside of the house so this was quite an accomplishment on Amy's par Soul Quest by Amy Jones totally made my week! And you must know that I am a very slow ebook reader, I really don't like spending my time looking at the computer screen or iPhone screen, depending if I'm currently outside of the house so this was quite an accomplishment on Amy's part to keep me so captivated.
Thank you Amy, thanks to you I look like a zombie today! For the most part of the book the narrative voice belongs to Liv. At first glance you could think she's just an ordinary girl, preoccupied with normal teenager day-to-day problems and dramas, like figuring out whether her feelings for her best friend are anything more than a friendly affection or doing her best to fit in at her new school. Pretty much all the things we all could relate to.
But Liv is no ordinary teenager, she is an Oracle of Earth, one of four human-born Oracles, who's duty is to save the Earth from destruction. Her companions of Spirit are: Each of them has unique gifts and charms, that will help them fight the evil Aengels and Daevas and try and stop them from stealing human souls.
