Book Review: Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey

     I NEVER WRITE BOOK SPOILER REVIEWS, SO ENJOY!  Shattered Souls is my new idea of a perfect YA ghost story.  This book has a little bit of everything.  Visions, haunting spirits of the dead, ghost hunting, gorgeous guys, reincarnation, special abilities, passed on spirit resolutions, love triangles and suspense.

Lenzi feels she is slipping away, the voices, the visions...  She's  worried her life may end as her dad's did.  Then when one of her visions comes to life and she meets Alden, things start making a little sense.  
Alden explains to Lenzi that she is actually reincarnated and has lived several lives as a Speaker.  One who communicates with lost souls and helps them move on to the next life.  Alden is her Protector.  Lenzi has to make a decision, accept the life she was born for, or her life with her current boyfriend Zak.  
She soon learns time is not something she has, her past is coming for her with death on it's mind.  She must choose her destiny now.

     I seriously loved this book!  I kept wanting more, so I literally read this fast paced novel cover to cover.  The author captured my attention right from the beginning and I never felt that let up.
Some novels when you start into them have what I call a predictability factor, that point where you get to in a novel and you immediately know each direction the author is going and how it will likely end.  I can honestly say I didn't have that moment in this book.  I was entertained and enjoyed each and every direction the plot went.

     If you love reading YA with a likable love triangle and enjoy a little supernatural.  You will love Shattered Souls!  This is one read I highly recommend!  I also HOPE that this author decides to write more, I'd love to read a sequel!
