How much can a soul take before it breaks?
Anna Pierce has a vampire boyfriend, a driver's license, real friends for the first time since she was five, and now she faces one of her biggest challenges, senior year at a mostly all girls Catholic high school. Sure, she's a member of the talking crowd now, but she'll never be like everyone else. How can she when the first of her kind has camped out in her dreams? 
Little dead girl Emily decides Anna's destiny can wait no longer. It's time for this generation's Touched girl to hunt. Trained in a virtual dream landscape to destroy all in her path, Anna must choose between her destiny, the one beat into her on a nightly basis, and her legacy, the one instilled in her by her parents.
Along the way, old enemies remain dutifully obsessed, new foes lurk in the shadows, and odd Little Duckie Anna Pierce sets out to be social.

Teaser Sentence:
'"Do you know what it's like to be craved by the love of your life?"'

My Thoughts:
I do not even know where to begin on my thoughts for Soul Bender. This read was a work-out on my emotions and feelings. (Don't you love when books do that to you? I do!)
I absolutely loved the new character, Cody. I was even starting to favor him over Peter. I cannot even explain how I felt when I found out his dirty, little secret. I am still not sure how I feel about this. Do I like this idea or do I have to hate him now? Hmm..I guess we will see. 
Peter really pissed me off is this book. He did manage to redeem himself, but I was a part of the Peter-hating fan club for a while. I loved this though. I really enjoy when a book makes me feel strong emotions. Even though I am angry with certain characters at certain times, I really am proud of the author for being able to accomplish this. 
I love how far Anna has come since the beginning of the Soul Walker. She has grown and matured into a totally bad-ass Touched Girl. Her new powers are awesome, and I love the new vamps that are introduced because of her new gifts. I really am excited to see what happens to her next.
You should absolutely go to Amazon right now and purchase this series! 

About Robyn Jones

I'm the mom of two hardcore boys. My oldest trained me to be matter-of-fact, no frills. My youngest wants the whole singsongy sweet package. Thank goodness for reading and writing because they are my sanity makers. I know life is all about the journey, that's why I like my fiction to be all about the destination. I want to be taken somewhere not here when I read, same goes with the stories I create. Thrills, chills, tears, and laughter, but there has to be something to hold on to at the end.

**So sorry I am a day late, Robyn. Forgive me? :)


  1. Thank you for reading Soul Bender and being part of the tour! My beta readers had a thing to say about Peter...and Cody! When they reached a certain point every one of them called or emailed me.

    1. AAGGHHH Cody! Why did you do that to me?? Seriously though, excellent writing. I am still hung up and thinking about it. Even though it seems like I am complaining, I love it!

  2. Everything you said is so great. I agree about feeling the strong emotions in this one and even hating Peter a little bit. I also liked the new guy but can't really assess how I feel about his secret. Great review! Thank you so much for participating in the tour. Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  3. Lol, I kept thinking Peter must have his reasons! Yes, I'm like that, if I really like someone, it's so hard for me to be mad at them, I start thinking it's not really their fault. I know what you mean about Cody, I was liking him too, until... Oh no!! It was like a betrayal!
