(Souls # 2)
By: Mary Lindsey
Pub. Date: January 23, 2013
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.
I received this galley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Penguin Books.
I was a huge fan of Shattered Souls so I was very excited to receive a review copy of Fragile Spirits. Fragile Spirits was just as good, if not better then the first. Mary Lindsey is a fantastic writer and has easily become one of my favorite authors.
Paul has studied for years to be a protector. But unlike everyone else he knows, including Alden, this will be his first cycle. He is so excited to meet his Speaker, the one he is going to be working with for generations. But Vivienne is not what he was expecting and the exact opposite of him. I loved so much watching these two go from hating each other, to finally trusting each other and forming a friendship. These two had the most wonderful connection. I couldn't get enough of them!
Paul was such an interesting guy. He is definitely a rule follower and always wants to do the right thing. I would have never guessed his back story and my heart broke for him. He never let anyone in and kept his twisted childhood to himself. Vivienne was definitely the perfect girl for him, because she knows how to his push buttons. Vivienne causes Paul to lose control, which is something he definitely needs to do sometimes!
Fragile Spirits is a companion novel to Shattered Souls and it is not necessary to read SS if you don't want too, but I recommend that you do! Lindsey does a fantastic job explaining everything to the reader, but I think it will be better to get the whole experience! These two books are wonderful! If you have read SS, then you will be happy to know that Alden and Lenzi plays a huge part in the second book and I was not expecting to see so much of them. It was such a pleasant surprise!
I am (not-so) patiently awaiting what Lindsey has in store for us next!
