Fragile Spirits - Mary Lindsey (Souls #2)

Published Date: January 23, 2014
Genre: Young Adult/Fantasy
Synopsis:Paul has always known he was a Protector, fated to serve a Speaker who could hear the voices of spirits lingering after death and help those souls find peace.
Vivienne ignores the voices of the dead.Paul has always followed the Protector’s rule book, preparing diligently for the day when he’d be matched with his Speaker and fulfill his destiny.Vivienne never does what she’s told.So when Paul is matched with Vivienne, they both find the pairing less than satisfactory. But a kidnapping, a malevolent spirit and power stronger than both of them may just prove that they are two halves of the same whole.In a stunning story about the beauty of fate and the power of secrets, Mary Lindsey returns to the world of Shattered Souls with a breathtaking thrill-ride of a novel.**Note from author: This book begins one month after Shattered Souls leaves off. Lenzi and Alden are featured in this book, but reading Shattered Souls is not a prerequisite.

In the first book, Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey, we were introduced to a new character near the end. No spoilers, I promise. But this character is a new Protector and they are getting assigned their first Speaker. But this girl is the total opposite of him from a first glance. 

When you don't get along with someone, romantically, friendship, or familial, you tend to bicker it out until one party gets tired and gives it up. Throughout the book, this happens constantly but it isn't the kind of arguing where it makes you want to cry in a corner but the kind where it makes you smile and laugh, just a little bit.

Now since the characters have been introduced in the synopsis, I think that Paul and Vivienne's storyline goes along the lines of Lenzi and Alden's, however, just from the male's perspective. Both Lenzi and Vivienne are snarky and confident in their powers once they get introduced to them while Alden and Paul are both protective [obviously] and lovers of their Speakers. They also help their partners get used to the idea of their powers and help them use it. Also another character from the pervious novel will show up and make you want to flip tables in the short run.

In the next book, if there will be one, I predict it will be about Race and Maddy and how their relationship developed since the beginning of time, maybe show a little snippet of why Race and his first partner never got along. 

I really liked this book and I don't know if it is because of the paranormal activities in the series, but it is definitely a good read. 

So thanks for reading and I hope that you will click that follow button and share my posts with all of your Google circles, Facebook friends, and so on. The next book will either be Hush, hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick, or Twist by Karen Akins. 

I rate this book a good 3 out of 5 stars.

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
