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.
With plenty of twists and turns, SHATTERED SOULS will keep you on the edge of your seat! 


Lenzi is a tough, brave heroine, struggling to help others while keeping herself from falling apart, and evading nasty spirits set on destroying her. In the midst of figuring out her new role as Speaker, she's torn between boyfriend Zak, and new, mysterious hottie, Alden. 


Zak tries, and he seems to truly care for Lenzi, but he has some serious baggage which puts him in the "Girl, quit hanging on and get rid of him before he hurts you" category. Alden is such sweet fellow. Madly in love with Lenzi but doing his best to do what's right by her. Ah, the torture of forbidden romance!  


Mary Lindsey's writing has a haunting quality that lends beautifully to the steady build up and slow reveals that wind through the path of this captivating plot. It also compliments how the romance between Lenzi and Alden develops into a deep emotional connection that has transcended time. 


With plenty of intrigue, mystery, ghosts, evil spirits, reincarnation, and an intense surprise ending that that will have you holding your breath, SHATTERED SOULS is a fantastic addition to your Christmas list. Look for it's release December 8th! But FYI, Mary is having a giveaway on Goodreads!

And I can't do a review without gushing over that amazing cover! It's even better in person. So gorgeous, and kudos for how it captures the feel of the story.
