I have to first start off by saying I have been waiting for this book for what seems like ages, every since I was left hanging at the end of book 1 wondering what was going to happen next based on the set up. I don't know where to begin to describe the absolutely marvelous job that the author does in not only creating a wonderful world with so much depth and detail, but a story line the has the mystery and intrigue that will keep you glued to the the ...more
Jean Murray, has written another wonderful addition to her "Key to the Cursed series"This is the story of,Bakari and Kendra.These two characters are written brilliantly! I immediately fell in love with these two, Kendra is just too cute with her light, sweet, fun personality, and her quiet, yet determined attitude to make things right.Loved her relations with Ba ...more
This is Bakari and Kendra’s story. It was phenomenal. I had to force myself to put my kindle down to go to work, go to sleep and other things. Kendra comes off as fragile and weak, but she is so much stronger than her sisters credit her. I love that she finds her voice. There are few scenes where Ke ...more

Bakari's story demands to be heard. After years of torture by the Pantheons' enemies, Bakari awakens with a thirst that can only be quelled by the woman who released him from his confinement. Unlike his brother, Bomani, Bakari is far from the honorable male Kendra deserves. Only blood and honor will win her soul.
I absolutely loved Kendra's character. And Bakari. **le sigh** Talk about tortured heroes. I just love him. So deep. And the last sentence of the back cover blurb "...his Parvana. His butterfly." Ohhhh, totally swooning over here.
Jean Murray creates an amazing world that I got completely sucked into. I felt every twist and turn like I was there, and I just love that about a book.
Nicely done, Jean!!!
The scorpion is the mark of Bakari, the God of Death, missing five long years from his post at the gates of the Underworld. Tortured by a sadist and left for long stretches confined in the dark, Bakari is little more than a wounded animal when Kendra Carrigan releases him from his sarcophagus. He cannot tell what is real from ...more
You've read my review on Soul Reborn above, now Soul Awakened is so different in my opinion. It picked up right after the first book and it didn't have the sluggish vibe I had with the first book. I read this right after Soul Reborn and I was complete taken by how good Soul Awakened is. Let me just get this out first thing since this is the only issue I had with the book - it was hard to differentiate who was talking at the time. That somehow disrupted m ...more
