This book was just ok for me... The main reason I had a harder time to lose myself in this story was because there were so many characters and the theme was quite complex. There were angels, guardians, black souls, purgatory, heaven and hell!!! The list goes on and because I was on holidays for the most part of trying to figure this story out... it made it that much harder to absorb all the little details!!!

I have always loved this author, and I will admit that her mind intrigues me considering

You know that feeling when you read something and you have that moment when you just know that all others books even remotely similar will be compared to the masterpiece that you are currently reading. That’s how I felt when reading My Soul Keeper. I was probably 25% in when I realized that this paranormal by Ker Dukey was going to be the best I’ve read all year …if not ever.

My Soul Keeper is a magnificent battle of good and evil t

I’m a fan of Ker Dukey and her Broken series, and when I was given the chance to read My Soul Keeper, I took it. I’m not a huge paranormal romance fan, but the synopsis intrigued me, so I thought I’d give it a try, and boy am I ever glad I did. This was a brilliant story, full of twists and turns to the very last page, and I love love loved every second of it.

The thing that excited me the most was that this story doesn’t really center around just one person, it involves every character, and the

Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse Nuttall for Kindle Friends Forever.

I dove into this book with a certain amount of trepidation purely because paranormal had never called my attention before. To say I was intrigued from the first line would be an understatement. It’s nothing like the author’s previous books but the style and incredible imagination she has used in a complex storyline is far from confusing and will not let readers down who like this type of book.

I'm sorry, but no matter how hard I tried this book just wasn't for me. I thought at first I would enjoy it, her being a virgin attracted to some really hot men, some even angels, but no. We were not even honoured with hot sex scenes. I so wanted explicit details, I wanted to feel part of the book, I wanted to get all hot and bothered, but even the first sex, was yes magical, but not hot. There didn't seem to be any care in this act, the fact it could be painful, it was like it was their hundred ...more

Oh my.... Please please someone tell me there is a follow up book???

I am not normally a huge paranormal fan. I do have a few authors I read faithfully, but paranormal is not at the top of my list. So, when I saw that one of my favorite authors had a paranormal romance coming out, I must admit, I was a little torn. Do I read it? Do I pass it by?

Well, can I just say I am so glad I decided to give this one a go. I struggled to get into it in the beginning, but I pushed forward and ended up greatly

This was a pretty interesting take on Angel & Demon characters for a story…interesting, but also engaging and executed really well. The players in the story, especially the leading roles of Simone and Shamar, are well-rounded and reflect excellent development with depth of personality and realistic emotions. I must say that what impressed me most was the author’s ability to include so many characters that each left their own distinct and impactful presence on the reader, without disturbing t ...more

My Soul Keeper is my first Ker Dukey book. I have not read any of her others, not for lack of trying. I have had them sitting on my kindle forever and just haven’t gotten around to them. I have heard good things about her writing and this book did not disappoint.

Simone has a relatively normal life, or so she thinks. All of a sudden her teenage world is turned upside down with the appearance of angels, demons, and Lucifer himself. Turns out Simone isn’t so normal, and because of this, anyone clos

Let me start by saying i DON'T read paranormal but because i loved Ker Dukey's previous books i thought i'd give this a go. Now, this is nothing like The Broken series at all, except that it's brilliantly written and just as addictive. You meet all the main characters from the beginning and i've gotta admit i loved them all, even the horrible ones.

Wow - Loved this new Paranormal book from Ker, very different to her Broken series but equally as good, very well written, gripping, a few twists along the way and of course some hot steamy scenes.

The story follows Simone and Sharmar who have to face and accept many new challenges along the way and are drawn to each with such a strong force and have to fight for what their souls crave.

A brilliant recommend read - I hope to read more paranormal books

This book was a little confusing for me, so many names and characthers changing. I loved Shamar and how he felt for Simone, and Lucas was deliciously dark.

My Soul Keeper is a wonderful battle of good versus evil, true and destined love vs. envy and lust; told in dual POV’s. It is a fast read that will have you holding on to your kindle, and anxiously flipping the pages to find out what other secret will be revealed, of who is evil or good. I swear every time I thought I knew a character in this book, I was proven wrong.

There comes a time when we've read a book that makes us feel honored to have been one of the first readers of a story. That statement applies to this book. I'm familiar with Ker Dukey's work and have been a fan since reading Broken. Then I her follow up novel The Broken Parts of Us which went in a direction I didn't expect and I was truly impressed with her growth as an author. After reading My Soul Keeper, I was in awe of the storyline and characters in her latest book.

This is very different from Ker’s past Novels and I'm quite impressed. I am very picky with my paranormal, very specific, and this isn’t the type I read, but I'm glad I didn’t walk right past it, this one makes my top 3 Para’s of all time.
You get to meet some great main characters. Simone and Leah’s friendship is unique and fun and Leah likes to try and get Simone to step outside the box. You know Leah will always have Simone's back and vice versa. Liam is always looking out for her.

After reading and loving both The Broken and The Broken Parts of us, I was wondering how Ker Dukey made the transition to paranormal writing and how good it would be. I am a huge paranormal book lover and so was hoping that this wasn't going to be the same old story, just retold. Boy, was I wrong. I was blown away.

Right from the beginning, you can tell that this is going to be a really good book. One that rivals many others. I was drawn in from the offset and I devoured this book, I read it with

This book started out a little slow during the first few chapters for me, however after that I could not stop turning pages. It seemed to just flow from one page to the next without needing a break. I really connected with the characters and their emotions. Ker Dukey did an amazing job writing this book so that once the story started it never slowed down. There was just the right amount of detail.

Simone was the average teenager, nice, kind and beautiful, even though she had no clue that she was, had good friends and was dating the most popular guy in school, Jake, the school's starting quarterback. Everything was going perfect in her life until she meets Him at a party, Lucas, the hot guy that sets off all sorts of lust in Simone. Anytime Lucas is around Simone cannot stop the feelings and emotions that try to takeover her body.

Simone’s entire life changes as she finds out the people she loved and trusted weren’t who she thought they were. She tries to save her brother’s soul from Death while trying to fight the feelings of lust she has for him.

Shamar becomes captivated by Simone, breaking rules to be near her, be with her. When Lucifer comes for Simone, Shamar must decide how far he is willing to go to keep Simone safe.
