Fragile Spirits Review, Part Two

So, I finished Fragile Spirits by Mary Lindsey, and to be quite honest, I have mixed feelings about the book. On one hand, I liked how the author switched it up by having the story told by Paul, who is the main female character’s Protector. But on the other hand, I wished that the story was told by Vivienne’s point of view. With Vivienne’s point of view, I think that the story would have been more interesting. Personally, I thought that the character of Paul was…not dull per se, it seemed like the author didn’t quite flesh out Paul’s character enough to be the lead character of the book. In addition to that, in my opinion if the story had been told by Vivienne’s point of view, the story’s ending would have had more meaning. As for possibly reading a third book (if the author should continue the series), I would read it, if only to see what happens next. Anyway, I would recommend this book series if you want to read a book series that has a Ghost Whisperer vibe to it.

Fragile Spirits Review, Part One

So, I have been reading Fragile Spirits by Mary Lindsey lately. You can read about the premise of the book here. Anyway, this review is only up until the end of chapter eight. So, bear with me. Anyway, this book is the sequel to Mary Lindsey’s Shattered Souls. After reading the first eight chapters, all of my assumptions about the book went out the window. Not having read the book flap nor any of the websites explaining the book beforehand, I thought that the book was going to be a continuation of Lenzi’s story, not a related story from a different character’s point of view. Having said that and having read the first eight chapters, I am interested to see what will happen next.

Shattered Souls Review

About a month ago, I finished reading Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey and I wanted to write a review before I forget the details of the book. You can read a summary of the book here. Overall, I liked the book. I liked the idea of the main character, Lenzi, who is someone who can speak to the dead and help them cross over to wherever they are supposed to be by letting the dead person come into her physical body and speak to them that way. I also liked the character of Alden, the guy who helps Lenzi understand her abilities. I also liked the idea that the characters of Lenzi and Alden, as well as other Speakers and Protecters, can be reincarnated. However, my biggest “problem” with the book is that it reminds me a lot of the TV show, Ghost Whisperer, in terms of a person who can speak to the dead and help them to move on. I kinda feel like the book is a slight rip-off of Ghost Whisper, but that has its own spin on it. All I can say is that if you liked Ghost Whisperer and don’t mind a book that is similar to it, then I recommend it.
