Shattered Souls - Mary Lindsey (Souls #1)

Published Date: December 6, 2012
Genre: Young Adult/Fantasy

Synopsis:A thrilling debut story of death, love, destiny, and danger

Lenzi hears voices and has visions - gravestones, floods, a boy with steel gray eyes. Her boyfriend, Zak, can't help, and everything keeps getting louder and more intense. Then Lenzi meets Alden, the boy from her dreams, who reveals that she's a reincarnated Speaker - someone who can talk to and help lost souls - and that he has been her Protector for centuries.

Now Lenzi must choose between her life with Zak and the life she is destined to lead with Alden. But time is running out: a malevolent spirit is out to destroy Lenzi, and he will kill her if she doesn't make a decision soon.

Lenzi is a normal girl or so she thought. She is dating a hot college guy who is a musician just like her and her father. Someone that she could relate too. But then Alden, the sexy guy who claims that he was born to be her Protector because she is a Speaker. Someone who talks to the dead. Or the dead talks to her. He also claims that they have known each other in past lives. Say what? 

Hot but a little crazy Alden drives Lenzi crazy. Her boyfriend as well who starts to show his jealous side as Alden enters her life and steals the affection of Lenzi from him.

As a single reviewer, I absolutely loved this thrilling book. There is a forbidden romance, almost re-telling the story of Romeo and Juliet with the exception of their lives of course. However, I think that Lindsey rushed through the plot and did not allow it to develop. It didn't make the book worse or anything but if it was broken up into other series, I would have loved it even more. If anyone is looking a for a action-seeking novel with a hint of thrilling and yet forbidden romance, this is the book for you. It is definitely redirected towards the Young Adult audience because it has no scenes in it where it makes the readers hormones go all jumpy but it definitely has its AWWW moments, if you get what I mean.

I was going to write a review about Twist - Karen Akins, which came out today for those who did not know already from my earlier posts but unfortunately, I will have to wait to write that until I am able to buy it. 

Anyways, I am reading the second book as of now and I will be posting a review in a couple days. 

Thanks for reading this post and don't forget to push that follow button on the right hand side of my blog.

I rate this book a good 4 out of 5 stars.

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
