Lies..... Not book 3 of a trilogy. The fact that the author felt it necessary to insert a novella (unbeknownst to the readers because the book is advertised as #3) is disconcerting. So it must be said this is not a trilogy but a series. The little connection to Trinity I finally began to pick up through book two was totally zapped away by the preview of what is I believe the third (actually fourth) book of this trilogy. Am I the only one who sees that? I wish some authors would quit playing games and simply write books with beginnings, climax and endings.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Well hell this little novella had a little bit of everything! We get to see how Shandor and Trinity's sister get together, that relationship is just....ewwww! We get to find out the whereabouts of Hockey and what he's been up to! Marko tries to right a wrong and in the process something either really incredible happens to him or really dangerous, we'll have to wait until book three to find out. A butt load of things happen in the Romani camp between Nico, Becki, and Tobar...none of which end well...sighs!
All in all...this novella is one of the saddest novellas I've ever read especially because of the death of one particularly beloved character, he was blindly stupid but beloved nonetheless...it was sad to see him die and the ironic thing is the person who ordered his death is living a hell life all on her own already....

I've been looking forward to 'The Lost Souls' since I finished book 2, 'My Soul to Take' and boyza, I was not disappointed.... Madeline has created an awesome world full of darkness, magic, love, loss & heartache and I loved every single second of the emotional rollercoaster I found myself on!
In 'The Lost Souls' we catch up with characters we met in the previous 2 books. Hockey, Shandor, Carrie, Marko and a few others. The book covers the time from the guys in the clan leaving camp to go on the unsuccessful raid until slightly before the point where we left things at the end of MSTT.
We get glimpses of Xan and see how much he is suffering from the loss of Trinity and his subsequent finding out that she may still be alive - glad to say he has (finally) given up his manwhoring ways, but I'm still mad at him.... what a stupid, stupid man, that is so gonna bite him in the butt very soon!!!
We catch up with Becki who, once again, isn't leading the life she would chose if she had a choice. We see Nico, Tobar and some other clan members and find out what happens with them.
'The Lost Souls' doesn't just apply to Trin/Xan/Gerik and their separation and/or relationship but takes on a whole new meaning when we look at the characters in this book and the path their lives have taken since we last saw them.
I am a HUGE paranormal fan and I just ADORE the Trinity books. 'The Lost Souls' beautifully ties together what has happened so far in 'The Soul Mates' & 'My Soul To Take' and sets us up for the final instalment 'My Heart & Soul' which is due out in the summer of 2014. I haven't been so excited about a book in quite a while and it's gonna take all I have to wait patiently to find out how everything works out!!!
If you haven't checked out this series yet, do so NOW.... I love that the story is so very different from most other books that are out there and the situations that the characters find themselves in are far removed from anything that could or would happen in everyday life.
The story will really make you think and, if you're anything like me, you'll cry bloody buckets but you'll also laugh, smile and feel a little bit hopeful that maybe, just maybe, things will turn out right!!!
Can't wait for more of the clan and to find out what happens with Xan, Trinity & Gerik the dragon....
Have to say, I'm still #TeamXan..... ;-)
