Fragile Spirits

First off I want to say that if you are going into this one looking for more story via Rose/Lenzi and Alden you won't find it. Although they are there as side characters this book is not about them. Also if it has been a while since you read Shattered Souls reread it first! It will help you!

Ok so Fragile Spirits picks up around one month after Shattered Souls ends. And it is a character drawn book. The plot really takes second string to the characters for Fragile Sprit. We get to see some of the characters from book one in this one, which was great.

We get to see Race again, which is just wonderful! But this story is about Paul (whom we met in the end of Shattered Souls) and Vivienne his speaker. Vivienne and Paul are complete opposites. She is so out spoken with hot pink hair (loved btw) and Paul is the straight forward, rules and protector.

The pacing for this one was great even though the plot and story you find out in the start. It plays second string to the character's and their back story. Now don't get me wrong this was still a great book and I can't wait for more. But it really bummed me to find out that it was not the continuing story.

I really hope that author, Mary Lindsey, brings everyone back in an exploding book 2! It would be great to have the book in multi POVs!

Book Blurb for Fragile Spirits

A thrilling romance filled with ghosts, rebellion and revenge!

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 a 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.

Perfect for fans of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's Beautiful Creatures, Lauren Kate's Fallen and Maureen Johnson's The Name of the Star.
