This book surprised me it I thought the main focus was going to be Linzi and the love triangle between her Zak and Alden. Actually the book focused mostly on Linzi trying to find herself not who people said she was suppose to be but the person she was meant to be. I'm not saying there was no romance but the romance part had nothing to do with Linzi hearing ghost or being a Speaker(people who hearing and help ghost cross over.)I think the only problem with the story was that I felt there was no problem I guess the end could be considered a problem with Alden breaking the rules and about to be sentenced to death,but that happened at the end. Now I'm curious if Shattered souls is a stand alone novel or is it going to turn into series. If anyone know feel free to message or email me.
