Published by Philomel, the print edition is 320 pages.
FRAGILE SPIRITS is the second book in Author Mary Lindsey’s Souls series.
There are a ton of awesome books releasing the week of January 21st, a few of which I was lucky enough to get the chance to read early. But the book I am most excited for, and have been waiting the longest for, is Mary Lindsey’s FRAGILE SPIRITS.
I read the first book in the series, SHATTERED SOULS, quite a bit earlier than its release – July 2011 – and so it’s been a two-and-a-half year wait for this sequel. And while the main characters in this second book in the series aren’t Lenzi and Alden, they are in this book about Paul and Vivienne, according to the author’s note.
I can’t wait to meet Paul and Vivienne and find out whether I’ll love their story as much as I did Lenzi and Alden’s. I can’t wait to get a peek at what Lenzi and Alden have been up to in the one month that passed in their world and the two-and-a-half years that passed in mine.
I was such a huge fan of this world when I first read about it, and I can only imagine it will be every bit as awesome in this next book in the series. I also think the dynamic between Vivienne and Paul is going to super exciting to read. And if there is a love story, as the description hints, I have a feeling it will be just as amazing as Alden and Lenzi’s.
The description also promises secrets, a mystery and a malevolent spirit. And I can’t wait – really, really, really can’t wait – to finally get to read FRAGILE SPIRITS and uncover the secrets and attempt to solve the mystery.
So while I am excited to discover a few of the other books releasing the week of January 21st, and I’m thrilled that a few of the books I have read are releasing, I cannot be more excited than I am for FRAGILE SPIRITS. Which is why it absolutely, positively had to be the book I put in the spotlight this week.
And, for me, it is unequivocally the book to watch this week.

About the Book
Paul has always known he was a Protector, fated to serve a Speaker who could hear the voices of spirits lingering after death and help those souls find peace.
Vivienne ignores the voices of the dead.
Paul has always followed the Protector’s rule book, preparing diligently for the day when he’d be matched with his Speaker and fulfill his destiny.
Vivienne never does what she’s told.
So when Paul is matched with Vivienne, they both find the pairing less than satisfactory. But a kidnapping, a malevolent spirit and power stronger than both of them may just prove that they are two halves of the same whole.
In a stunning story about the beauty of fate and the power of secrets, Mary Lindsey returns to the world of Shattered Souls with a breathtaking thrill-ride of a novel.
**Note from author: This book begins one month after Shattered Souls leaves off. Lenzi and Alden are featured in this book, but reading Shattered Souls is not a prerequisite.
