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 never listens to 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 a 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.
Perfect for fans of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's Beautiful Creatures, Lauren Kate's Fallen and Maureen Johnson's The Name of the Star.

I got this book as soon as I was able to buy it. When I started reading it i hated having to put it down. The story is so captivating that you could sit and read this and not even realize it until you have finished it. It felt as if I was really there in the story with the characters seeing and feeling what they were. I would recommend this and every other book by Mary Lindsey to anyone and everyone. Mary like all good authors makes the reader at the end say "I want more". if i could give it higher then five stars i would. Thank you for the amazing books Mary
