Do you remember how horrified you were about the idea of attending high school? I remember ticking off those last miserable days of my summer vacation following my eighth grade year. Maybe you don’t, maybe you were one of 'those people.' You know who I’m talking about, people like Melissa Small, the distinguished District Attorney, Larry Small’s daughter, popular, gorgeous... and absolutely terrifying to someone like me, Liv Glyn. No, I am far from measuring up to the standards required to make Melissa’s crowd. I’m not even close. I’m just a simple man’s daughter, mostly tolerated by my peers with average looks. If this isn’t depressing enough for you, stay tuned, it gets worse. I was commanded with Spirit at birth by the Great Spirit, Hala. I know, it sounds crazy but it’s true. If you think it's difficult being a teenager, try being a teenager who was born destined to save the world from soul sucking Daevas and their mutant progeny Aengels. There are four of us. My companions of Spirit are Laith, Brayan and Meena. Melissa Small is Laith’s step sister and she is always meddling where she doesn’t belong, further complicating our lives. To make matters even worse, my best friend Jedd is apparently aware of things that are typically undetectable to ordinary humans. So, I have to lie to Jedd, the boy who has been my constant standby since the third grade, to shield him from the horrible and very dangerous truth. Did I mention that I think I’m falling in love with him? The term awkward doesn’t even begin to cover it, trust me. Welcome to the mess that is my life.

(MY THOUGHTS)        5  HEARTS!!!!!
 Soul Quest is an excellent read. Amy Maurer Jones takes reality and fiction and mix's them together which gives this paranormal novel a deep, believable and exciting storyline. Not to mention four teenagers who are oracles who have unique gifts to help save the world form the evil Aengels and Daevas. Amy Maurer Jones is a very talented writer. These four teenagers are well-developed and have great personalities, and the story is totally amazing.

Liv is an Oracle of Earth. Brayan is an Oracle of Wind. Laith is an Oracle of fire. And Meena is an Oracle of Water. Each has been given their own guardian spirit mentor since their birth to help them with the fight against evil, but now it’s time to bring all four Oracles together to fight the evil Aengels and Daevas who are sucking the souls out of humans. These four also have to go to high school and yes, they also have the normal teenager problems to deal with. Like romance. Liv would love to be more than just friends with Jedd and Jedd wants to be a part Liv's Oracle world to help fight in the front lines with Liv. Liv wants to keep Jedd in back to be safe. That was fantastic to me that a girl was protecting a guy for a change.

I also like how Jones gave a description of all the characters in the front of this book. That was very helpful to have this insight with this huge storyline. I also like the way Jones built the trust between the four teenagers. I recommend Soul Quest as a super great read.
