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.

It's Incredible !!!
It is incredibly easy to get swept up into it. I found myself desperately want to know more about this new, exciting and terrifying world that Jacob is thrust into. It is one of the most well-developed plots I've seen in a long tim Ching does an incredible job crafting the different story elements so that they fit . Often times with series, the first book is basically just glorified world-building. While the author does put a great deal of time and effort into this, the story does actually move along at a decent pace. I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook.

I found myself very drawn into this book, much more than expected. The audiobook reader Jeffrey Kaffer is excellent and does not distract from the reading. I found myself engaged and I feel that the narrator was much responsible for this, he has a great voice that draws you into the book, reading with a flat voice that allows for the book to lead the way. I will look for other books by him in the future.
For the book The Soulkeepers, I really enjoyed this listen, I was charmed by the characters and find myself looking forward to the next book. The subject of magic can often be repetitive but I find that the author GP Ching has found a fresh viewpoint and topic for this that I really enjoyed.
