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.


Mary Lindsey lives in Houston with her husband, three kids, two dogs, her daughter's pet rats, an Australian Bearded Dragon and dozens of Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. (The roaches are a long story. Don't ask.)

This is how I felt when I found out this wasn't the continuing story! 

First off I want to say that if you are going into this one looking for more story via Rose/Lenzi and Alden you won't find it. Although they are there as side characters this book is not about them.  Also if it has been a while since you read Shattered Souls reread it first!  It will help you!

Ok so Fragile Spritis pick up around one month after Shattered Souls ends.  And it is a character drawn book.  The plot really takes second string to the characters for Fragile Sprit.  We get to see some of the characters from book one in this one which was great.

We get to see Race again which is just wonderful!  But this story is about Paul (whom we met in the end of Shattered Souls) and Vivienne his speaker.  Vivienne and Paul are complete opposites.  She is so out spoken with hot pink hair (loved btw) and Paul is the straight forward, rules, protecter.

The pacing for this one was great even though the plot and story which you find out in the start. Plays second string to the character's and their back story.  Now don't get me wrong this was still a great book and I can't wait for more.  But it really bummed me to find out that it was not the continuing story.

I really hope that author Lindsey brings everyone back in an exploding book 2!  It would be great to have the book in multi POVs!

I cannot wait for Into the Still Blue so I can finish up that amazing series. But it will be incredibly bittersweet too! I absolutely adore this one, and I really hope this final book blows me away, too!

I can't wait to finish I am number four series! I'm already starting on Fall of Five. It's amazing! Pittacus Lore has blown me away :)
