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 intact and their love untainted.

Pledged was a magical journey into the world of three pairs of soul mates. The story wove seamlessly throughout the novel, following the characters of Seth and Erin, Caleb and Talitha and Sophia and Jared. Plus the bad guys! Yes, that sounds like a lot of characters, I know. But Gwynneth White has a remarkable ability to tie all of these characters together without the story feeling disjointed.

I really enjoyed all of the characters. Their personalities were very distinct and made them seem very realistic. Seth and Erin were, of course, my favorites. The inner fight Seth has going on with his soul is such an interesting concept. And Erin, well, who couldn’t love Erin?

Overall, I did find myself transported to Shenaya along with the characters. The world building was fantastic. The characters were engaging. I’d say, it’s a winner!

4 stars for a beautiful beginning to a sure to be wonderful series!
