My Rating: 4 Roses

A lovely conclusion to a wonderful series, Soul Betrayed was a great read. This book definitely took me by surprise. It was unpredictable and the ending was unexpected and I really liked that about this book. It was thrilling, surprising, and an enjoyable read.

Maggie really grew up in this book. She found out more about her past, came into her full strength, and proved herself as a heroine. She was tough and determined to keep her loved ones safe. By the end of the book, I really liked her.

The romance was always light in this series but, in this book, it took a turn that I wasn't expecting. But, I thought it was sweet and, with the new things we learn about Maggie and Jackson's past, it became deeper. I wasn't sure how I felt about Jackson in the previous books, but I definitely liked him after this one. He was loyal and would give up anything for the one he loved. I thought he was wonderful.

The plot was well paced and I was kept interested the entire way through. As I said, there were surprises along the way that kept me on the edge of my seat. I enjoyed the story and the ending has me both happy and devastated. It was a perfect, bittersweet ending to the story.

Soul Betrayed was a lovely YA paranormal read. I really liked this book. It was a wonderful conclusion to the Life After series. Fans of the series, you won't be disappointed. And, YA lovers, this is a series worth checking out.
