Waiting on Wednesday (55) - Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey

8:00 AM

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Release Date: December 13, 2011
Publisher: Philomel Books

Summary (from Penguin Canada):
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

I've had my eye on Shattered Souls for quite some time now and I'm still sad that we all have to wait until December to read this novel! I believe it was sold as a stand-alone, which is a nice change of pace for the genre as most novels these days with any supernatural elements tend to be part of a series. It sounds like we have a love triangle in store for us... and I'm definitely eager to learn more about Lenzi's abilities to help lost souls!
