Soul Awakened (#2) By Jean Murray

Soul Awakened (Key to the Cursed Book II) LOVE FOR BLOOD OR HONOR

Kendra, an Egyptologist and demi-god in waiting, is the key to unlocking Bakari, the Egyptian God of Death, from his cursed slumber. Desperate to free him, she inadvertently binds herself to the god with a spell that only death will undo. To save Bakari from himself, she may have to sacrifice her innocence, and possibly her soul, before he becomes his family’s worst enemy.


Bakari awakens to a world at war and a beautiful woman who has tethered his soul to hers. In the wake of his self-destruction Kendra is his only hope of salvation, but another has vowed to keep Bakari from the one thing he craves most-- hi
s Parvana. His butterfly.

Elena's Review:

"The Carrigan sisters were the first step to their freedom.Light and darkness.Life and death brought together, the best of both worlds."

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 Bakari.I  knew right away her decision was made and there was no other man she could fall "in" love with. Jean did such a fantastic job with Kendra. I really loved reading about her.   And Bakari was as expected, with his brooding, selfless, alpha male self, and his  inner conflict in regards to Kendra, it was impressive, but seriosly, who was he fooling? Certainly not me.Lolz! I enjoyed the exchanges between them early in the story which made me really root for these two.Bakari's brother Bomani can't touch what they have :P. Jeans' writing is just beautiful, almost atmospheric. 

I fell for Bomani and his character and feel sad for him.  He’s such a good guy and hardly wait for his book with  with a heroine just as kind as him :) 

There's much more to the story, if you read the first novel in the series and enjoyed it, then without a doubt you will love this novel :)

Note to author: You're a tease!!! Lol! You had me when Kendra had to choose between males, and now I'm afraid that Kit won't end up with Kamen.You're just wicked! Hopefully my assumptions about where this series is going will be in my favor.....hahaha!
