Wow! Gen Ching brought something wonderful and refreshing to the table with Weaving Destiny! After reading The Soulkeepers, I wasn't sure how the sequel would play out. To my surprise I loved it! The novel went smooth and was a well worded, fast paced read.

As the characters from the previous book are still around, we are introduced to a couple more people in this book and we also get to meet a few more that we didn't get around to spending time with in the first book. You will love to hate some

The Watchers are now more determined than ever to succeed in their fight for dominance. And as more and more people go missing or turn up dead, the Soulkeepers appear to be losing the fight.

With Malini still unsure about what she really is and just what she can do to help, Dr. Silva manages to track down another Soulkeeper willing to join them. But Mara Kane isn’t just any Soulkeeper. She’s gorgeous. And she seems to have set her sights on Jacob.

With the growing tension between Malini and Jacob

This was every bit as good as the first in the series, if not better. The plot offered plenty of surprises, believable character interactions and growth, and some wonderful visual imagery. Once again the author doesn’t shirk away from the tough issues as Melani battles with finding and coming to terms with her place in the world of Soulkeepers and watchers. Self sacrifice and mercy killing are a couple that spring to mind. Her father’s journey to understanding his teenager and her coming to unde ...more

I rarely buy books. Honestly, I can't finance my reading habit. Due to this, I get 99% of my books from the library. I was in-between library visits and out of reading material when I decided I would find a free e-book on Amazon. This is when I picked up the first book from the Soulkeepers series. Long story short, now I'm addicted and it looks like I'm going to have to keep paying for the books since my library doesn't have them.

The good news is that Weaving Destiny was definitely worth it. It

Malini Gupta is having a hard time figuring out where she fits into the Soulkeepers. Even though she believes Jacob is her destiny, the frustration of not knowing what she is threatens to tear their relationship apart. Matters are aggravated further when a horseman named Mara shows up. She’s clearly interested in Jacob but Jacob isn’t giving any clear cut answers.

To sort out her destiny and find her place, Malini must face her worst fears and even death, learning in the process that Fate is a ta

I loved this book a lot. My favorite part was Malini's fhree day spirit journey in the in between. My second favorite part was when she got her healing hand and her death hand. It was a joy to experience the twists and turns Weaving Destiny had for it's readers. I would recommend this book to everyone.

Has weird scenes, wasn't very interesting, but has an ok overall plot.

I almost put this book down in the first 30 pages. It had more of the drivel from the first book and I was still really unconnected with the characters.

But, I stuck it out because it's YA and it's short. It was a decent book with a nice plot. I like the imagery and that it's DIFFERENT in terms of it's end of days problems. But, there were entire sections of the plot that felt forced and, worse, really predictable.

I'll probably stick around for book 3 because I'm a little curious where it's going

Weaving Destiny was a great book, its genres are fantasy and action. This book is based on a character named Malini. Malini just found out that she is a healer and that is this most powerful Soulkeeper of all. She can heal every human disease but can kill any human being with just one hand that she has to place on them. Malini has a boyfriend named Jacob who is also a Soulkeeper. The main quest of this book is to stop Lucifer and his watchers. I would recommend this book for only the people tha ...more

Every bit as good as the first in the series. It is well written, flows well and is fast paced. Some great character development and surprises await among the pages.
They won the battle but not the war so there is more to come in the future of this series.
I Highly recommend it.

The book is entertaining and in my case kept me reading till the end, even though not with the same excitement I experience with other books. It builds an interesting world, but had too rate it only with three stars because it really gets to the edge of teen drama.

This was an amazing second book to his series! I felt like the characters who may not have had a say in the first book was able to shine here. The plot is thickening, and I can't wait!

Also biased because Henry is introduced here, and he's my favorite character in this series ;)

It's always a risky move to change up your protagonists part way through a series... at least for this reader. In this book, Jacob steps aside so that Malini can take the main role and for me, it just didn't work.

The problem is that I just spent a book growing attached to Jacob's story, sympathising with him, and rooting for him as a protagonist. As much as I liked Malini in the first novel, she wasn't a character that I loved so much that I wanted to hear more of her story over Jacob's. It wou

I loved this book even more than the first in the series, The Soulkeepers, which is saying something because I really loved that one too. The second volume in The Soulkeepers series continues the original, epically written, and fast paced saga that G.P Ching began in The Soulkeepers. With an impending showdown against fallen angels, new friends and foes alike, zombies, prom dates with Death, and startling new discoveries, Weaving Destiny is an action packed, emotionally charged ride start to fin

For you to become what you were born to be, you must face and overcome your greatest fears. You must release what you desire most, and you must choose your course based on your wish to serve, knowing you may do so alone. (pg105)

What an exciting sequel to The Soulkeepers by G. P. Ching! While I loved book one, I devoured book two and could not put it down. It has lots of action, sizzling chemistry, and twists I totally didn’t expect.

In book one, The Soulkeepers, we were introduced to the world of

With Weaving Destiny, G.P. Ching serves up a fascinating story that is equal parts action, excitement and emotional baggage.

Jacob and Malini’s relationship undergoes a change, and I must say that it makes me love them even more. I am not going to give away the details, but let’s just say that the dynamics change. They do a lot of growing throughout Weaving Destiny; both together and separately. Malini especially begins to have more of an identity outside of their relationship and it is really ni

Compared to the first book, Weaving Destiny is definitely an evolution. I always felt like there was one unidentifiable, gnawing thing missing from the first, but it is rectified in Weaving Destiny. The writing is much better, the story-telling even more intricate and clever, and the characters seem even more realistic and likable.

This volume focuses on Malini Gupta, the title character, Jacob Lau's, girlfriend. I always liked Malini from book one, but I really didn't get the chance to come to l

"Weaving Destiny" asks the age old question, 'Do you believe in destiny?' In the beginning of our story, Jacob's cousin Katrina is attending a college party where she is drinking too much. She meets a man, Cord who she cannot seem to resist. He gets her another drink and soon she is dizzy. He offers to walk her home and the next morning she awakens lying on the grass with her roommate hovering over her. She is scheduled to go home to Paris, the next day.

This review might contain a few tiny spoilers!!

"Weaving Destiny” will include a powerful dual POV: Jacob and Malini’s. Jacob’s powers are greater, he has more control, but this book won’t revolve around him much. The center target? Malini. We are finally going to learn what she is. What she can do, and what she must do to reach her true self.

Hi!

I'm rating this 4.5 stars.

I won Weaving Destiny and The Soulkeepers by G.P. Ching as ebooks.

This book has developed so well! In my review of the Soulkeepers I said that my least favourite character was Malini. This book has really turned my opinion of her around. Adding her point of view made you relate to her as a character and (SPOILER) by making her into a Healer and describing her experiences made me really relate to her. Ching has made me completely change my opinion of a character and t

I so forgot how much I loved this series and I am seriously sad that I let so much time pass between Soulkeepers and Weaving Destiny.

The action and emotion was just as intense in Weaving Destiny as it was in the first book. The fact that Malini’s parents have grounded her from seeing Jacob doesn’t make it easy for them to find ways to spend time together much less fight the next Watcher threat. A new Soulkeeper joins the ranks, plus some other very interesting characters. Attacks come from unexp

This is book 2 of the series and since book 1 really caught my attention, I thought this one would too. And it did - to an extent. The story focuses more on Malini in this book, whereas book one was about Jacob and his family's past.
It's about her figuring out her role (at the same time the reader is figuring it out) and what her "destiny" is all about. Destiny and being chosen for something as a teenager is not a new theme, all who know young adult fiction are very familiar with it, however th
