Shattered Souls (Souls #1)
by Mary Lindsey
From the Publisher...
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.
I have to admit that I was reluctant to read this book. I got it months ago at a library book sale because the cover intrigued me and the beginning of the summary on the jacket was at least interesting. So, I followed my own book choosing policy and grabbed it. After bringing it home, though, I never got interested in reading it. As we were packing for our Christmas Vacation trip, I needed to grab a book quickly. So, I gave it a shot, and I'm so glad I did.
Seriously, this is a good book. The series potential is exciting, since there was only partial satisfaction in this story line. The relationships were interesting and entirely different in their concepts. Most of the intriguing relationships in this book not only include current interactions, but the love developed in past lives. These memories made for a particularly fun story.
Pick this up and let me know what you think. I don't want to say much more, for fear of spoiling it. So excited fro the next in this series, especially since so many series I have been reading are ending this year.
