Malini Gupta thought Jacob Lau was her destiny. But after months of failing to decipher how she fits into the Soulkeepers, frustration threatens to tear their relationship apart. And it doesn't help that a new Soulkeeper named Mara is ready to stop time itself to earn Jacob's love.
When Malini faces her worst fears, and even death, she learns a funny thing about destiny. Fate is a tapestry of choices, and she has the power to weave hers. (from smashwords)
Going into Weaving Destiny, I wasn't sure if I would love it as much as I did The Soulkeepers. Come to find out, it is one of those sequels that I actually liked more than the first book.
Told form the Point of View of Malini, Jacob's girlfriend, the story is action packed from the very beginning and its full of twists and turns. Malini is almost positive there isn't anything special about her, as Jacob and Doctor Silva think. A lot of the story focuses on Malini's journey to discover who and what she really is. One of my favorite parts of the story is Malini's journey. A journey to what? Well, read it to find out! A new character, Mara, is also introduced, and I couldn't help but love her. She really complicates things for Malini and Jacob and it was just really great to see how they worked things out... or do they? Mwahahahahah! Anyways, there is some pretty awesome stuff that goes on in Weaving Destiny, and it really keeps you on the edge of your seat. I had to force myself to put the book down to go to sleep, because it had me hooked and wouldn't let me go. And the ending! Just as epic as the ending to book one, if not more so. I nearly cried too. Some crazy stuff happens and I sat there like this -> 0_0 for five minutes. Also, I wanna note that the scene with the spiders and snakes thoroughly freaked me out. Congrats Ms. Ching, as it takes a lot to freak me out in a book, never mind in one scene!
I loved that the story was told mostly from Malini's point of view. Out of all the characters, she has to be my favorite. I don't know what it is, but she just really sticks out to me as awesome. I loved Dr. Silva, as usual, and I really liked her conversion from a sort of enemy-like figure in the beginning of The Soulkeepers into a great ally over the course of that book and into this one. Mara was a great addition and really threw things into chaos. She was a strong Soulkeeper and I really felt like she kind of... completed the team of Jacob, Malini, Dr. Silva, and Gideon.
Ms. Ching's writing was once again amazing. It really made me feel connected to the characters and it was very descriptive. The pace was perfect and I think she did a great job of going through multiple plot lines and not making me feel confused. My only complaint: it was shorter than book 1! But that's all right, because the way the book went, everything happened the perfect way and it really sets up for book three, which I can NOT wait for.
Anyways, FIVE stars to Weaving Destiny. It was one heck of a sequel and it definitely has me hungry for more more more!!!!!!
