The Soul's Mark: CHANGED by Ashley Stoyanoff

Ever since college student Amelia Caldwell moved to Willowberg, her life has been in turmoil. But with the evil vampire hunters no longer terrorizing the town, Willowberg is once again peaceful.

With a little help from Mother Nature and a dream for a better future, Mitchell has found himself in a predicament-after eight hundred years of being immortal, he is now a human while his soulmate is a vampire.

Now all Amelia and Mitchell have to do is hide from the world until his body can handle the change. But when Mitchell gets a cold, all hell breaks loose.

With an unexpected resistance rising, and an unexplained deadline from the spirits, Amelia realizes that this is a fight she cannot win alone. One thing is clear, though: to save Mitchell, he needs to change-again. But if he does, what chance does he have of surviving it?

5 Spellbinding, Sensational Stars! An Amazing Ride I'm Going To Miss Waiting For!  The Review:  I absolutely love this series and these characters. And as much as I loved this last book, I'm sorry to see their adventures come to an end... but wow, what an ending! Story... The Soulmate bond may be back in place but things are uncertain and ever changing in Willowberg. In the last book, the Soulmates bond took a break while Amelia worked through her angsts, and during that time, the humans, who had a moments taste of freedom, are now fighting their Vampire mates, who are stronger, faster and more demanding than humans, so obviously theres going to be trouble. The bond is causing all sorts of problems, resulting in excruciating plain or deaths on both sides of the species and finding a solution has become paramount, especially as Vampires are becoming increasingly aggressive and possessive. But each of our mains have their own personal crisis going on as well. Mitchell is now human after eight hundred years of being immortal. Him being out of the leadership role and things resulting into chaos in the Vampire community is the least of his problems. Having been immortal, he never had to deal with sickness so his body never built up immunities to common diseases, such as a cold, which now seems to be killing him. Amelia is now a magic using Vampire and her urges, rages and temper seem to be flaring at the most inconvenient times. Fear and stubbornness are keeping her from accomplishing the things she needs to in order to fix Mitchell, fix the bond and become what she’s destined to be.  Eric has had to step up in Mitchells absence but he and Megan are finding themselves on opposite sides of the Vampire/Human/Soulmate debate. Luke and Lola seem to be the only stable partners in the household but even Lola is having troubles in her new position as maker. Tyler and Angelle are in the middle of their own crisis as their future is uncertain and the entire Vampire nation has resorted to using their soulmates as feeding bags since the town has cut off their volunteer blood supply. With everyone going in separate directions, everyone having their own problems to sort out and the bond spell reeking havoc, Amelia must discover her path in her new life as well as a resolution to the bond issue before its too late for her, Mitchell and everyone else she cares about. Times is running out! Characters... Amelia struggles to find a balance with the Vampire newly raging inside her and the powerful magic pulsing within. She has to really pull deep on her patience to keep from exploding and it doesn’t always work. She’s a ticking time bomb full of out of control power and strength. Mitchell being human was a real eye opener for him as well as me, the reader. Where as he was this strong, formidable force before, he’s now almost humbled as his strength wanes. He’s having to learn to live life in a way he’s not had to deal with before and its exhausting as well as painful. But he’s still the family’s leader, their protector, the one they go to when things are uncertain... their father figure. Without Mitchell, they all fold and they know it. Mitchell and Amelia have come a long way since book one but they still struggle to find their balance throughout this read. They both let pride, fear and love cloud their reason and because of that, they both suffer. They know that working together always sorts their problems faster and in better ways but they are both strong in mind and will. They’ve yet to realize their true strengths are in each other... together. But they are getting there. I really loved the roll reversals we get with Mitch experiencing what it is like being human in the Vampire/Human relationship. He gets a feel for what Amelia went through and he gets a better understanding of what the soulmates feel. He’s fortunate though. Where he tried to impose his will on Amelia, using their bond to try and bend her to his will, she tries hard not to do the same to him when she’s now the one with the power.  But I also loved that Amelia got a real taste of what Mitch goes through too. Having all that control over a person but having to hold yourself steady and avoid the temptations of using it, when it would be so easy. They learned from these experiences and they grew as individuals as well as a couple. All the other couples came to terms with their issues as well and I loved seeing everyone get a resolution.  The Wrap Up:  CHANGED was fun, thrilling, entertaining, heartwarming and so well written. And it had an amazing Epilogue! All my questions were answered and everything was wrapped up nicely but leaves a bit of room for more should this storyline continue, which I can’t help but hope for. I love these books so much! This entire series has stunning visuals, a fantastic story and the characters will keep you entertained throughout all the books! I can’t recommend this series enough and I'm sure if you give it a chance, you’ll love the entire Lang family as much as I do!

** I received an ARC from the author in exchange for my honest review** Well, I'm a super fan of Ashley, that's no surprise, and the fact that I really enjoyed this book isn't, either. I've loved this series since the start. I've grown attached to all the characters with different personalities and stories. What can I say? I absolutely loved it! Ok, well, maybe not the first part hehe, I found that at the beginning every character was a little whinny and didn't do much, from Lola, to Millie to Mitch but as the story progressed I got caught up in the plot, as always! Cover:  The best so far. I really like it! and it's very representative. Writing:  If you are looking for a simple writing this is not your kind of book. Stoyanoff's writing is complex and it makes you think, it entangles you in all the twists and details of the story line and at the same time it flows smoothly and keeps you glue to the pages. I believe her writing  keeps improving book after book.  I think that, even unexpected, the 'TSM: Changed' was an outstanding end to the series. It brings closure and helps you understand a lot of things that have been happening in the other 3 books. Characters: They gained depth and in this installment, we get to know all of them better, Lola whom I related to more than in the previous books.  Also we get a lot more of Angelle and Ty's story. Those two are just so perfect and so incredibly cute together that you can't help loving them. In this book, I even liked Mitchell! I've been hating him since the beginning but now I can understand his action, his selfishness and overprotectiveness towards Amelia.  To sum up: I'd totally recommend it and this is a series I will miss!

I really enjoy this series! There are so many twists and turns. It's just a fun read. This book was great. I didn't expect some of the twists that came and I loved the turn of events. I hope there will be more to read! The characters were well developed and the plot, even though somewhat predictable, gave plenty of unexpected surprises along the way. I have to give this book five glittery stars for it's supernatural awesomeness!

This was a very fact paced, enjoyable read. Right at the beginning Stoyanoff gives a good recap of previous novels without ever breaking out of the new, very well laid out, storyline. She also gives this vamp-tastic world one heck of a hilarious twist. There was definitely a comedy of errors going on here for a bit; at the same time Stoyanoff infuses an intensity into this novel that keeps you riveted. As an author, Stoyanoff makes you feel like you’re part of the story instead of just someone reading it. Stoyanoff’s natural yet vivid descriptions continue to set the scene perfectly. She also really makes use of allusion in this instalment to paint an entire mural with her words.  Although Stoyanoff’s characters are all quite well developed coming into this final novel in the series, she takes a bit of a different twist with further development here. Development in this novel has shifted to a more real and personal level. Her characters have become more developed on a very down to earth level here. Confusion and strength of character really shine through now. They are real people, just in vamp-form. Also, even though Mitch and Amelia are still the main characters, the entire cast takes on more major roles in this story to create a ‘main family’ of characters.  I must say that I love Mitchell in this novel. He’s so real and he no longer seems disjointed from reality. In earlier novels in this series Mitchell always seemed stuck in the past, and considering his age that is quite understandable. Now, courtesy of the time he’s spent with Amelia, you can still see his past but he’s living in the present. It’ makes for a very nice change of character which happened quite naturally.  Overall, this was a brilliant wrap up of the series. Parts of this story broke my heart, others put it back together, and others yet just plain made me laugh. Stoyanoff ties up all the loose ends and leaves you with a sense of completion at the end of the novel, even if you do wish that there were more to come so that you could stay in Willowberg forever. Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

What a roller-coaster this series has been!! The term "roller-coaster" is used often in the various synopses and blurbs for this series, and it really does fit. The back and forth surprises Amelia and Mitchell go through are enough to give anyone whiplash-of-the-imagination! This book is certainly entertaining, though, and not one that's easy to put down. It fits right along with the previous books of the series, by taking what you thought you knew from the ending of Book #3, and flipping it upside down. Then it twists sideways, turns around a few times, curves a little, til dropping you back down with a "thump" at the end. Nerve-wracking, exhilarating, exciting, and completely entertaining- this book had me hooked from the very beginning. The writing, as always, is very good. Ashley Stoyanoff is a natural writer, and I thoroughly enjoy every book I read from her. I can't say much more without giving away spoilers, so I'll say this: if you're a fan of angsty, surprising, roller-coaster romances, full of vampires, witches and laughs, then this is a book, and series, you'll enjoy. *I was given an ARC eCopy of this book, from the author, to read in exchange for an honest review.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review  So Here are my thoughts:  This series as a whole was Amazing! I adored it every step of the way.  Ashley is an amazing story teller and her writing style is unique as well as beautiful. I loved the new take on the vampires, and how she kept some of the old traditions. It's a hard balance to find and Ashley was able to accomplish it flawlessly.This series was original in a time when originality in Vampire stories is a hard thing to come by.  That being said of all four books this one was my least favorite. Not that it is my any means bad It really tied the story up nicely, but I personally am a HUGE fan of Eric and through half the story ... well he is almost someone else entirely. Which I found upsetting. Again this is a personal thing and it likely will not bother any of you in the least. Though there  were some very unexpected twists near the end of the book that I really was not expecting... Quite exciting. The rolls have flipped in this book and everyone is in some sort of emotional turmoil. Angalee's story ... Sigh. Mitchell is literally falling apart and now they have a deadline (pun intend), the tension is high and I LOVE IT.   Amelia has grown so much since book one. It has been an awesome journey and Ashley did a superb job telling it. Just because I was not in love with parts of book 4 doesn't mean this series is not worth reading, because it is. It is very worth it. So much so, that I would recommend it to my best friend (In fact I did).
