Sometimes Rest in Peace isn't an option
Kacie Ramsey sees ghosts—and it's ruining her life. Her mother left, her father blames her, and no matter how hard she tries, she can't keep the ghosts away. Now a new power has emerged. Nightly visions of grisly murders and a relentless predator draw her to the brink of insanity.
When the phantom appears at a party, Kacie's longtime crush, Logan, saves her. He invites her to join the Orion Circle, a group of supernatural hunters with chapters in schools all over the country. Through the Circle, Kacie learns to embrace her spiritual powers, and for the first time in her life she feels in control rather than a victim.
But the Foxblood Demon will not give up so easily. A demented serial killer in life who trapped the souls of the thirteen children he murdered, imprisoning them within the walls of his mansion. Now in death, he plots his return while drawing power from the pure souls of the children. He recognizes something in Kacie he's never seen before—a medium powerful enough to provide a vessel for his tainted soul.
Kacie can't ignore the tortured souls of the children crying out to her every night. With Logan at her side, she will fight the Foxblood Demon. But can they banish this powerful phantom, or will Kacie lose not only her body, but her eternal soul to the monster.
About the Author
Kimber Leigh Wheaton is a bestselling YA/NA author with a soft spot for sweet romance. She is married to her soul mate, has a teenage son, and shares her home with three dogs, four cats, and lots of dragons. No, she doesn’t live on a farm, she just loves animals. Kimber Leigh is addicted to romance, videogames, superheroes, villains, and chocolate—not necessarily in that order. (If she has to choose, she’ll take a chocolate covered superhero!) She currently lives in San Antonio, TX but has been somewhat a rolling stone in life, having resided in several different cities and states.
Over all, I thoroughly enjoyed Tortured Souls. The main characters were a little younger than I am used to, so at times, when I thought the dialog was cheesy, I had to remind myself of that fact. Other than some of the dialog, the story seemed like it's target audience should have been older. I won't say it was graphic, but some of the story line involving the murders really freaked me out!
All the characters were well written and easy to like. I enjoyed the fact that each member of the Orion Circle had their own special gift to offer. I do wish Gavin would have had a little more to do with the story. He was the only character I didn't really make a connection with.
Normally I do not like anything that has to do with 'ghost hunters'. All those T.V. shows - I hate them. I found that when attached to a fiction book, I really get into the idea. I loved the story line about the cult leader and what all he did to trap the souls in the earthly realm. It was intense and really freaky. I couldn't put the book down waiting on everyone to figure out the secrets of his plot.
If you are up for a gruesome story about teenagers trying to rid the world of one seriously bad guy then Tortured Souls is the book for you!
