Fragile Spirits by Mary Lindsey
Publish Date: January 23, 2014
Publisher: Philomel

I read the first book in this series a while back and really liked it. I'm excited to read this one. Apparently, it's more of a companion so you don't need to read the first book.

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 ignores 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 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.

**Note from author: This book begins one month after Shattered Souls leaves off. Lenzi and Alden are featured in this book, but reading Shattered Souls is not a prerequisite.


  1. o0o this looks really good! I hadn't heard of this book or the companion before, but I'll be looking into them :-)

    Thanks for sharing,

    Check out what I'm waiting on!

  2. I've been really curious about the first book, but haven't decided whether or not to get it.

    My WW!

  3. I haven't read the first book in the series yet, but I'm interested.
    I also really like the cover of this one. Love that pink hair on the cover model!
    Lovely pick, Alison! :)

  4. I don't believe I've read the first book yet, but this one definitely sounds intriguing, and I love the premise! Fabulous pick this week, Alison! :)

  5. I haven't read the first book yet but it is on the list (somewhere). I do like the cover for this one though

  6. Such a pretty cover! I love that this is a companion book too, I sometimes dread reading sequels even if I loved the first book because it takes me so long to really remember what happened, so I'm excited that this book starts new but in the same world. Can't wait!

  7. This cover looks super cool! Nice pick :)

  8. Love the cover! Looks action-packed! I haven't heard of it or the first - definitely will check it out!

  11. Haven't heard of this series but it sounds really good. Kind of reminds me of Soulbound by Heather Brewer just in the pairing relationship. In that book there are Barrons and Healers that are Bound to each other. Great pick! Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog!

  13. Really intriguing cover -- a little busy but I kind of like it and it makes me read the blurb, which is always good!

  14. Sounds like a pretty cool read!

    Followed you, and would love a follow back! :D

  15. I was surprised to enjoy even the paranormal aspects of Shattered Souls-something about Lindsey's writing just really clicked with me. I am excited for this sequel!
