In Soul Corrupted, the sequel to Soul Crossed, life in Heaven isn’t all "happily ever after" for Josh and Grace. Now Guardian Angels, they are entrusted with finding and saving the next potential Antichrist. But Grace is consumed with worry about her family, which is dealing with the aftershocks of her death. She's particularly concerned about her brother Noah, who has turned down a dangerous path of drugs and violence—and she's frustrated by the rules of Heaven, which forbid her from contacting them.
Josh has troubles of his own. A former Demon, he questions his ability to guide troubled souls to the light. When he discovers that Noah made a deal with Lucifer and has even been hanging around with Josh’s old Demon pal, Keira, he makes a forbidden counter-deal with the Devil to save Noah's soul. Josh's side of the bargain? He has to sever his relationship with Grace.
Josh and Grace's world is about to spin out of control, testing the limits of true love and blurring the border between Heaven and Hell.
Soul Corrupted is the second installment in Lisa Gail Green’s Of Demon and Angels series, which started with Soul Crossed.
Praise for Soul Crossed, Of Demons and Angels series, Book 1:
“Who knew evil could be so dreamy? Josh is a devilishly good-looking demon who leads the reader right into lust and temptation. Although Josh is the demon, it is Camden, the Anti-Christ, who will really have readers shivering from his devilish, sinister ways. The Mortal Instruments meets Romeo and Juliet in this title that’s jam-packed with love, chaos and heartbreak. Readers will have a hard time putting Soul Crossed down.” — Romantic Times
"A wickedly romantic story that will have you cheering for Lisa Gail Green’s addictive storytelling. Soul Crossed is devilishly delicious!" — Martina Boone, author of Compulsion and the Heirs of Watson Island trilogy
“Soul Crossed blurs the lines between good and evil with addictive characters and a plot that will have you eagerly turning the pages.” — Kelly Hashway, author of the Touch of Death series
Exciting Second book! Great Read!

Book 2 picks up after Grace and Josh has stopped Cam from becoming the antichrist. Although, they died in the process, they are now both living in Heaven with an important mission...to find other souls that have the potential to become the antichrist.
While living in Heaven should be easy, Grace still misses her family. Her brother, Noah, is taking it hard. Grace is forbidden from interfering in their lives but is able to go visit them, and what she sees breaks her heart.
**“They can’t get past my death. You should’ve seen the dark circles Mom had yesterday. Dad’s been working late every night, longer and longer hours, and then there’s Noah.” I stop there because it hurts too much to say out loud what Noah has become. That would make it real.
Josh and Grace's relationship is not what Grace thought it would be. Underneath she still harbors some ill feelings toward Josh for making her fall. It's not that she doesn't still love him and want to be with him, she does. Its just that when she sees Josh with a pretty girl, the feelings of being unable to trust him keep coming up to the surface. She wonders if the girl she saw him with was a potential, she doesn't know who that gir is exactly and when she finds out, it could devestate her.
And our favorite demon, Keira, is back...and she has a job of her own to do.
**I don’t like the way he says friends. “I don’t recall us having any friends.”
Lucifer grins, displaying perfect white teeth. “Smart girl, Keira. Your job is to distract our newest Super Angels above.”
Irma cuts him off. “And the best way to distract them is to break up Gracelyn’s illicit coupling with that boy.”
“You mean Josh?” I bite my lip hard the second the name passes my tongue. It’s bad enough she mentioned Grace’s name. “Josh” was banished from our vocabulary the second he beat Lucifer at his own game. Not that I want to spend another second thinking about either of them. The whole debacle was unfair.
I really think the Author did a great job with furthering along the storyline in this second book. Lucifer's plan for the next antichrist is getting closer. Irma Alvarez has an agenda of her own. Josh and Grace struggle with the new souls that could be the new antichrist, while being distracted with their relationship and Grace's family. I especially liked reading from all 3 main characters POV (Grace, Josh and Keira).
The new characters that pose to be the new antichrist are greatly written. You get a young boy who has had a hard life and is always alone on the streets and hangs out with gangs. A young girl with a creepy eye, and you get something completely unexpected from Keira. The topper... is who the next one is to make a deal with the devil (I bet you its not who you're thinking *wink*). You'll just have to read the book to find out all the devilishly good details!
I read this in one sitting, with bated breath to find out what will happen next. Definitely excited for the next book in the series.
