This review is entirely spoiler free, even if you haven't read book one, Shattered Souls.
Fragile Spirits is an electrifying, superb sequel that is sure to capture readers with the high stakes and epically great romance scenes Lindsey has crafted. Even better than the first book!
I thought that Shattered Souls was a great paranormal read, but Fragile Spirits was truly special. I loved getting to see Paul's side of the story, and his story was so enthralling and captivating. He's had to deal with so much change, but Lindsey does a spectacular job at crafting his character together to make him one of the most coolest male protagonists I've ever read about. And when he's matched with Vivienne, a rebel who doesn't care and never does anything she's told to do, their pair is odd and awkward, but as Fragile Spirits progresses, they grow to become an unbreakable bond and a force to be reckoned with. Such a marvelous sequel!
So many secrets! So much betrayal! Kidnapping and a vicious spirit on the loose makes for a brilliant story, and it's impossible to put this book down! It's fast-paced and action-packed - Fragile Spirits had me in its grip from start to finish. If I wasn't reading it, it was the only thing on my mind. Shattered Souls was great, but Fragile Spirits was phenomenal. Everything from the powerful bond that Paul and Vivienne share to the sinister spirits that lurk in the darkness, Fragile Spirits is a powerful sequel that shines bright.
I loved how Mary Lindsey crafted together the spirits and otherworldly creatures! I thought that they were eerie in Shattered Souls, but the spirits in this novel are the definition of creepy. They're wicked, they mess with your mind, and they haunted me late into the night as I was turning these pages as fast I could. I adored this sequel so much. Truly, truly one of a kind!
Overall, Fragile Spirits is a sequel that not only delivers, it exceeded all of my expectations. Mary Lindsey has nailed it again!
