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.

Great narration, not really my type of story
- K. April Holgate
So you liked Harry Potter? Give this a shot.
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.
