Everyone has a soul mate. But what do you do when your soul mate would rather give his soul to the demons than be with you?

Seventeen-year-old Erin has a problem. Seth has been hers forever, but now an ancient curse is tearing him away. And the demons who invoked it will stop at nothing – even murder – to claim him as their own.

How can she win against a curse so binding that it has damned countless others to this same fate – an eternity alone?

The answer lies in the past. To find it, Erin and Seth must risk all, travelling back in time to a dangerous world where love is forbidden, and life – and death – hang on a pledge.

Follow Erin and Seth as they travel to ancient Shenaya and confront the curse that has plagued their families for millennia. Caught in a war between the Angelic Guardians and the Gefallen, the disembodied dead, they must fight to keep their souls in tact and their love untainted.

Pledged has a terrific premise-soul mates, time travel, and destiny. The author had a very creative way to introduce the book to us who were participating in the blog tour, and for that reason alone, I knew I had to read it!

The setting for Pledged is terrific. It takes place in South Africa, which I found original and interesting. The way it was described, I felt like I was there.

I loved the characters, Seth and Erin. They were honest and fun. They are soul mates, but Seth doesn't know if he should fight destiny or not. It was interesting to see him make the choices that he makes. I really enjoyed Erin, she was a girl who knew exactly what she wanted and I could respect that!

The story does get a little confusing at times, especially when the author was going back and forth thru time, but I eventually I got the basic idea. Besides that, I did enjoy the writing. The entire story kept my guessing. I never knew what was going to happen next!

I am excited to see where Gwynneth While will take us next in her Soul Wars Saga! 

You can purchase Pledged from Barnes & Noble and Smashwords!!
