Summary from Goodreads:
The last book in the Evie Sanders series has arrived!

Can love survive in a world where death is just the beginning and demons are hunting your true soul mate? Read the third and final book in Lamberson’s nationally recognized romance series to find out how Evie and Quinn's story ends.

The first book, Borrowed Heart, marked the beginning of a love so strong it defied death. Nothing could keep Evie and Quinn apart—nothing except for the rules Evie’s forced to follow, rules she broke to be with him. In Peace of Mind, Evie and Quinn overcame the obstacles devised to keep them apart. But as their bond grew, so did the danger they faced. Now, in Soul to Shepherd, the strength of Evie and Quinn's love for each other is put to the final test. Is their bond unbreakable or will they lose each other forever?

"It is a very strong love story that defines what the word 'soul-mate' means ... It's not so much about what happens after death as it is about how far love and a heart can reach." —Reviewers Helping Authors on Amazon and Goodreads

"Lamberson does a fantastic job weaving a fated love-story. She took her idea of ‘what-if’ and has created a fantastic answer." —Kathy LaMee for Tracy Riva Books and Reviews on Goodreads

Lamberson's debut novel, Borrowed Heart, was a finalist in the 2012 National Indie Excellence Awards in the romance category.

"SOUL TO SHEPHERD" —

My name is Eve Olivia Sanders—or at least it was. At eighteen, I died and became a Shepherd, an immortal guardian whose mission it was to safeguard humans from the Servants, the same demons that took my life. I was sent back to Earth to protect Quinn Harrison, who I soon discovered was my “true soul mate.” Our undeniable love for each other had survived death, amnesia, brutal attacks … and most recently, separation. But the worst of it was still to come. The Servants no longer wanted to just kill Quinn. They wanted to destroy his soul and convert him into one of their own—a demon. And I was being sent back again to save Quinn from a fate worse than death.

That said, I also had to protect myself. The Servants wanted me out of their way—permanently. As true soul mates, Quinn and I supposedly shared a bond powerful enough to give us the strength and the will to stop these demons from waging a war to take over and rule the Realms, and they weren’t going to let anyone interfere with their plans without a fight.

Quinn and I were about to find out just how much we could count on one another, knowing that if either of us failed, we’d lose each other forever. Together, we'd learn what the war between the Realms was really about and how it would be won or lost. We'd discover that everyone was playing for keeps, and the only currency that mattered in this high stakes game was measured in souls.

Save Quinn. Save myself. Save the world.

My Review:
WOW! That is the thing to say after finishing this amazing trilogy. This was by far the best of the three, although the first two books were really good too. This last one just blew me away.

Evie and Quinn think all the craziness with the servants is behind them after the third incident. What they don't realize is that the worst is yet to come. Not only are the servants still planning on converting Quinn but they also want to destroy Evie. Together along with their friends they must find a way to stop this from happening. Evie and Quinn also must figure out how to get their souls to bond since they are "true soul mates". Will they survive or will they be unable to save each other?

I, like Evie was very skeptical of Minerva, aka "M", Dylan's new girlfriend. Even though he trusts her completely I still felt there was something off about her. Then when Ronald and his brother would warn them about someone close to them not being who they think, well I was like run away from Minerva. She has a very unique story that she shares with Evie. She also has some really awesome super powers. By the end of the book I really had come to like M like everyone else, she was a great character and brought something unique to the story. Dylan, I still loved him throughout. He by far is one of my most favorite characters of any book series that I have read.

I could go on and on about everything that happened but what fun would that be for other readers? No, I will keep all the goodies to myself. You need to read this truly amazing love story mixed with shepherds and demons. I will say that there are many happy, humorous, romantic, suspenseful and sad moments. There are lots of twists and turns with many surprises and things that really shocked me. I was on the edge of my seat and my heart was pounding most of the time. This is by far one of my favorite trilogies. If you have not started this book or trilogy I recommend you do. It is SO GOOD! This e-book was provided to me for review. This did not affect my review in any way.
