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. A beautiful and mysterious neighbor offers to use her unique abilities to help him find his mom. But in exchange she requires Jacob to train as a Soulkeeper, a protector of 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 her motives for helping him.
This is definitely a series I will be able to get into. The Soulkeepers had a great cast, rich settings, and a very interesting story line. To top it off, it was also very well written. I think the crowning achievement for this book was the fact that it was told from a male perspective. It was a refreshing change of pace from all the other YA Paranormals out there who focus on the girls instead.
I highly recommend The Soulkeepers to YA Paranormal fans. You won't be disappointed.
