Soul Possessed picks up right where Soul Taken left off, so if you haven't read that, STOP! Go read it, and I promise you won't regret it.

In this second chapter of the trilogy, Maggie is now a Guard... well, a Guard in training. Ally has transformed and is in Guard training as well. Jackson is Maggie's trainer following his double agent lifestyle infiltrating the Shadowed for the Caeleste. Cooper is Ally's trainer. Maggie is a Soul Taker, a special Prognatum. She died prior to her 18th birthday,

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.

Quick & Dirty: This was a great sequel with lots of action, romance, and a great cast of characters. It is a really fast read and very entertaining. I would highly recommend this series.

Opening Sentence: It wasn’t the first time I went back there.

The Review:

Maggie finally has gotten what she has always wanted, to become a guard in The After. She has a lot to learn still and there is only one guard willing to train her. The gorgeous guard from her past –Jacks

If I had to pick a favorite, SOUL POSSESSED would be mine. Don't get me wrong, I loved, LOVED SOUL TAKEN, but SOUL POSSESSED held the answers I was dying to know, along with leaving me questioning everything I thought I did know!

In order to give this the best review possible, I have to give spoilers. So, I'm giving fair warning, should you not want to learn about SOUL POSSESSED in it's almost entirety, then stop
I loved SOUL TAKEN. Raved about it. Was so impressed with how Katlyn Duncan was able to create an entire new world, introduce tons of new concepts, and still keep the focus on the story and the characters instead of getting bogged down in definitions and explanations. Which is why writing a review for SOUL POSSESSED is really hard for me. Because I didn’t feel like SOUL POSSESSED accomplished the same feat. For me, SOUL POSSESSED was a 2.5 star read.

Maggie is now training with Jackson to be par

Review: 4 out of 5 stars

Soul Possessed is the second book in The Life After series and follows on right where the first book left off.

Maggie is now a Guard of Souls in The After, training alongside broody smexy Jackson who she shares an interesting past with she has a lot of work ahead of her, especially with her interesting new ability to take a soul and not really being accepted by the others.

Maggie has progressed so much since the first book, I adore her witty personality, her independence

A HUGE thank you to Katlyn for providing me with an ARC copy of this book to review for this awesome blog tour.

Maggie is coming to terms with how much her life has changed, and at the prospect of becoming a Guard.

She;s finished it difficult to think properly with Jackson constantly hanging around her, she doest' want to remember her awful past, her human life, but Jackson, can't seem to let it go.

With Ally finally transitioning into the Prognatum successfully, then soul taker's can carry on as n

This is book 2 in the authors After Life series, the first being Soul Taken. You really need to read Soul Taken before reading this one to understand the story and the characters.

Following her traumatic time during her last mission, Maggie is now on her way to fulfilling her dream of becoming a Guard. She is in constant training mode with Jackson trying to hone her skills.

Jackson and Maggie are chosen for a very special mission, but they are not going to be alone. They are sent on this mission w

Great Sequel. The middle dragged a little for me, but overall a really awesome read.

So, we can now begin where we left off in book one, which means you need to read book one before you read this one. I will also try my absolute hardest not to give away spoilers but please beware, this one is going to be hard without a few little spoilers. And I have a whole lot to say about this one ;) Maggie is now fighting harder than ever, she wants to be a guard and she will train until she proves herself worthy. Ally and Cooper, and Jackson are all back as well as a few others from the fir ...more

Katlyn Duncan’s writing draws me in, once again, in the sequel to her Life After series with Soul Possessed. Before I continue, if you haven’t read Soul Taken, I urge you to stop now because I will spoil a few things for you.

In Soul Possessed, Maggie’s life in the After has changed. Maggie has began the process towards becoming a Guard. Trained by Jackson, Maggie struggles between training and learning to recover a part of her past. To make matters more complicated, there is a renewed battle bet

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review*
Soul Possessed was a kick you in the teeth kind of book from the moment it opened. Maggie and Jackson are finally beginning to talk, and Maggie is still reeling from what happened at the end of Soul Taken. I really wanted Maggie to give Jackson a chance here, because he worked so hard for her.

The Shadowed are on the move, and the Caeleste need to know why so they end up pairing Maggie, Jackson, Ali, and Cooper together in order to find the S

This is a series review !!!

Series Rating : 5 Stars !!!

I got this series from the author as a complimentary copy, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.

Firstly I would like to thank the author and the tour organizers for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this series.

Okay, so first of all I would like to say that I just loved this series a lot!!!

There is action, mystery and lots of suspense which will definitely give you goosebumps. The characters are proper
I received this eBook from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Hmm, I wasn’t so enamored with this book like I was with the first one. I think this book suffered from “Second Book Syndrome.” This book fell pretty flat for me.

Maggie is in the Guard now. Having managed to prove herself as Guard material and such. And she’s training with Jackson, her ex boyfriend and possible double agent. Huh.

The best part of the book I shall keep quiet about, as to not ruin it but I’m glad that Jackson

This is the second of three books and TBH I preferred the first one.

Maggie has finally been given a position as Guard, and she is in training with her double-agent ex-boyfriend, Jackson.

Is Jackson what he says he is? What about Cooper, who acts a bit suspicious and then doesn't. Felix is a bit of an enigma and I don't know if he is completely trustworthy either. What about Robert? Is he working for the Shadowed or just a nosey, meddling human? What has happened to Jamie? Will Maggie meeting a

The Life After Series is a great series.

The way each of the series end makes one want to immediately move to the next to see what Maggie will be called onto do. I can't wait to finish the last in the trilogy.
I have agreed to read this for netgalley, pray for me people. I'll see you on the other side.
