Review of Weaving Destiny, by GP Ching

Weaving Destiny

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 GoodReads)
My Review

I loved The Soulkeepers. I thought it was a brilliant and amazing book. So, I was quite excited to read the next book in the series, Weaving Destiny. And when I learned that the story would be told from Malini's point of view, I thought "Yay!".

Weaving Destiny is the story of Malini's search to find her place in the world of the Soulkeepers. Her apparent lack of ability leaves her feeling frustrated and left out. All that frustration and the emergence of a new Soulkeeper, Mara, begins driving Malini and Jacob apart. It seems, the journey that Malini has to take to find her destiny, she must take alone.

Weaving Destiny includes some intriguing new characters and a larger role for some of the secondary characters of The Soulkeepers. The new addition to the group, Mara, is bold, sexy and confident. She is the polar opposite to Malini in many respects. She's the funniest character in the book, always sure to chime in with her morbid sense of humor. Henry is another new character that I felt made a great addition to the book. He is handsome and old-fashioned, to say the least. I won't give away in what capacity, but he is a major game-changer!

I was happy to find that Lillian, who is Jacob's mom, and Gideon played a bigger part in Weaving Destiny. And Dane, also. Dane was often the comic relief in this book. He was a huge support system for Jacob and Malini. And if you've read book one, you'll know that is a huge departure from the role he played in it.

One character that I was surprised didn't play a bigger part in this book was Dr. Silva. She was a huge part of The Soulkeepers. I've never fully trusted her. Something about her seems off. She always seems to have a secret up her sleeve.  I'm sure she has a lot more to reveal and hope that she will play a larger part in book three.

Weaving Destiny didn't pull me in quite as tightly as The Soulkeepers. And I definitely didn't become engrossed as soon. But, Wow. This book really got it together in the end. The last few chapters were fast-paced, terrifying, and heart-wrenching. And the epilogue? Let's just say it was ominous. Book three in The Soulkeepers series should be quite a ride!

" 'So, you do find her attractive.'
   'Will you stop saying the word attractive like you looked it up in a thesaurus under 'ambiguous
    words to trap your boyfriend with'? "

" 'I wear the Spongebob pajamas so that I remember how it felt to watch someone I thought I wanted
   dead plunge a knife into her chest. I didn't like it, Jacob. Spongebob reminds me to live by the rules
   even though I don't have to.' "
