Shattered Souls - Mary Lindsey Man, this book had tons of potential! I really, really wanted to like this book. I did like it. I wanted to read it and waited unpatiently until the sun came down in order to pick it up again. It did have potential, but it just lacked something.

First of all, I thought the story was flowing, but the writing style did not flow at all. At times it felt like there were sentences missing or something. I'm one of those people who likes dialogs between people, communication 'n stuff, but it's funny when I feel like there're sentences missing. And these sentences are important because they let us know where the communication is taking place, how, what are the facial expressions etc. It felt all over the place, to be honest.

The story itself was beautiful, flowing and capturing. I didn't like all of the characters. I liked Alden. Didn't like Zak (didn't get him at all and thought he was weird, but I felt like he was made into this bad guy by force.. I don't know, maybe it's just me. And the ending of his storyline was really "what the heck just happened??"). Mixed feelings about Lenzi. She was new, had no memories of her past, had no clue what she was doing - all of that I can forgive, but I cannot forgive that she'd known Alden like two seconds and then ran back and forth between the two guys. What the hell? Yeah, yeah, they had this amazing connection - Alden and Lenzi - and I as a reader felt it too, but Lenzi did not remember him and I just found it hilarious that she didn't know what to do and pff.. Give me a break! She was a mess. A hot mess that is.

I don't know. Something was just off about this book. I really, really wanted to like it more than I did. I feel bad that I didn't like it as much as I wanted to.

I'm not going to say that I do not recommend this book, I thought it was fun and youthful and yeah.. It wasn't bad. Even though it wasn't a book for my taste, that doesn't mean you should not give this one a go. You could. I just didn't fancy this book that much, sorry.
