Soul Quest is one of those novels you don’t forget! I love the way Ms. Jones captures not only the full high school experience, but masters the young adult voice so perfectly. The paranormal elements in the novel are unique and sometimes unexpected. I liked the mystery that kept the plot moving at a quick clip and the evolving romances kept me glued to the book. I highly recommend this author and I cannot wait to read the next in the series!! Hurry please!!

I discovered Amy Jones' Soul Quest Trilogy when I read The Glassheart Chronicles and was instantly intrigued.

I loved the format of the chapter headings because it helped keep me in time with the book. Not to mention, the quotes were fantastic! I liked and appreciated how the main characters were introduced into the story. There was something magical/mystical about Hala having access to a file of sorts where he could look back at key developmental stages, relationships, conversations, etc. I tho

Soul Quest is an excellent read. Amy Maurer Jones takes reality and fiction and mix's them together which gives this paranormal novel a deep, believable and exciting storyline. 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 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... this connection isn't something that happens with strangers everyday. 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, 2001- it is easy to tell things are not looking good from here on out. And it is all up to a gr

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 ch ...more

This was a fun read and when Amy pulled me into the plot and action, the story moved fast for me. There is a lot of background info because she’s created a new world with things like Deavas and Aengels. I loved the fantasy aspects of this story. Some of the high school stuff was hard for me to relate to because I was a shy nerd, but it was fun to see the fantasy elements mixed in with something that’s usually so mundane, like running for student body in high school.

Wow. 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! she's an oracle of earth.
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

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 ...more

I was given this book in return for an honest review. Poor Liv, she's a high school student with more problems than solutions. She discovers that she is a guardian. There is a whole world she didn't know existed, one filled with Daevas and Aengels (demons and evil angels) Liv and her hodge podge group are the guardians that have to protect the world from the soul sucking evil. Liv meets the rest of the Oracles while they are all running for Freshman class government. They discover together what ...more
I received this e-book from the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way.

The story starts off in the present with Liv and her best friend Jedd. She wants to tell him that she's a human oracle of earth but not sure how to tell him. Liv also doesn't know that Jedd seems to know things that humans should not know about the spirit world. She also thinks that she wants to be more than friends with him. Then the story jumps to the past and tells of how the guardians came about and h

Amy Jones' writing is addicting. From the very beginning I was drawn into this book and its complex story. The synopsis doesn't do the plot justice, it's a very in depth book with a lot of plot surprises.

Liv's character was my favorite, and that's something this story is not lacking, good characters. Liv is a down to earth kind of girl, the girl in high school who was friends with everyone is how I'd describe her. But, all of them stand on their own.

I love paranormal, fantasy, and romance books

This is going to be short and to the point. Soulquest just wasn't the book for me. I think I get what the author was going for with the story. But sometimes, a story just doesn't sit well or resonate with a reader and that is the case here.

For me, there was just too much going on. The story jumped back and forth between 2001 and 2014 (there may have been a few other years in there, as well). And it was indicated at the opening of each chapter, but I had a hard time keeping my bearings. To be per

Ok so I don't remember how I came across this book, but I am so glad I did because it was awesome! There were so many cool aspects in this book, but I can't say more than that because it would spoil the book. There were definitely some interesting paranormal aspects in the story as well. The book is pretty intense in parts and there is a lot of information being thrown at you. I was totally pulled into the book & finished pretty fast. There are so many great characters in the book & it w ...more

Recommends it for: Everyone!
This is definitely an action packed book! One of my favorite things about this book was how Amy Jones starts the book off in the present but then goes back to show us how they got to that point. I like how we get to see the different points of view from all the characters in the book. It helps to depict their feelings and reactions toward things. I love all the romantic relationships that Liv and her friends have. I also the relationship between the Guardians and the Human Oracles. This books gr ...more
Book Him Danno
This book had a few problems in the beginning, but it smoothed out and the story was different. Angels, demons, guardians and many other mystical things. The repeated chapters to get each persons point of view was long and annoying(that stopped and then the story revolved around one character at a time and no more repeating the same things). A few typos and the font size kept changing(not sure why I read it on a Kindle.) This book is the first one and so more explanations were necessary and so t ...more

I do not typically go for the how teenage love story but hey I decided to give this one a chance because of the description. I dove in thinking that I would be bombarded by wishy washy teen puppy love quotes, only to find I was wrong. The plot itself will circumvent the feeling that all you are reading a teen love story. I loved it and will be looking to read the next one in the series in the near future.
