Shattered Souls is rated 5 out of 5 by 3.
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.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous inside and out! When a book has a cover this gorgeous, you want to buy it and just pray that the story inside is awesome enough to match... and that's exactly the case with Shattered Souls! I loved it! At first I didn't think I'd really enjoy this book because it starts off like your typical girl-sees-dead-people story. But once Lenzi starts to accept who she is and we get to know all of the amazing side characters, the story picks up quickly and you won't be able to put it down! I adored Lenzi! She was a realistic, witty, and easy-to-relate-to girl that grew into such a strong and admirable character over the course of the book. And the summary makes it seem like there's an overpowering love triangle but there actually isn't! Zak represents her hurtful past. Sweet, caring, and totally swoon-worthy Alden just makes everything more awesome. The plot and world were fantastically crafted. As soon as you reach that hook, every single page is engaging and addictive... and by the time you get to the last few chapters, you'll be begging for it not to end yet wanting to know what happens at the same time! Twisting, original, and intensely heart-pounding, Shattered Souls is a debut that definitely matches up to the beauty of the cover! I recommend it wholeheartedly to people who are looking for a good ghostly reincarnation story, and to anyone who likes YA in general. :) BUY or BORROW?: Buy for sure! The cover alone is buy-worthy, but having it on your shelf makes it easy to grab when you're craving to read it again. And this book may be a standalone, but I really wish that Mary Lindsey would make it a series! *hint, hint*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it from beggining to end! www.addictedtonovels.blogspot.com I loved this book so so SO much! I really hope Mary Lindsey and her publisher DO decide to write a sequel. I don't think Alden and Lenzi's story is quite done yet! :) I can honestly say, I loved this book from the very first page to the last. Right away I was so drawn into the story and it's characters. Really though, there's only a few characters throughout the whole book, a lot of books feel like they have more than a few. This was what helped make the story SO good! That, and the simple, descriptive writing that gives you just enough detail to understand what's going on, but doesn't drag it out. This book had such a nice pace to it, I never found myself trying to get through a sticky part or nothing. Lenzi is such a likeable character, especially towards the end, when she starts to really embrace herself and know who she is. Alden is probably the best dreamiest guy book character I've ever read about. Zak was just a pain in my ass most of the time, but at the end, when he shows up, I was a bit surprised, especially when he seems to grow up a little bit, moments before he moves on. I know a lot of people would probably read the blurb about this book and think it's just another ghost novel, but it's sssooo not. It's so much better! It's got your tragedy, romance, ghostly encounters and so much more. I would definitely say it's one of THE BEST books I've EVER read. If you pick up Shattered Souls, you won't be disappointed!
