I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.
Kacie is a fifteen year who can see, hear and talk to ghost. She has lived with this ability for as long as she can remember. She keeps all of this knowledge to herself though and never talks to anyone about it. She tried talking to her parents about it when she was a little girl and her mother left and her father blamed her. Kacie’s father dealt with her mother’s leaving in a bottle but at least he stuck around and tried to an extent to take care of Kacie and her older brother Gavin. Kacie never saw or talked to her mother since but her brother Gavin talked to her sometimes but she never seemed to what to talk to Kacie which broke her little heart so much that she ended up hating her or that is what she told herself. But I don’t think she ever really hated her deep down. She was only trying to cover up the hurt.
After her mother left Kacie learned real quick like to keep her mouth shut about the fact that she could talk to ghost. She tried to ignore the ghost and pretend they didn’t exist and she knew if she tried to tell anyone they wouldn’t believe her anyway and would probably send her away to an institution somewhere and she didn’t want any part of that. So she kept her mouth shut and pretended everything was just hunky dory.
Until one day she was at a party and there was a ghost behind her but she wouldn’t turn around and acknowledge it. She hoped if she just ignored it; it would eventually go away and leave her alone. But that probably ended up being the luckiest day of her life because the crush of her life Logan came up to her and asked her straight out or well just confirming that she could see the ghost or knew that it was behind her.
That day changed Kacie’s life for the better for more than one reason. She started hanging out with Logan and she found out she wasn’t crazy after all that there were other people like her that has special powers too. She now had someone that she could talk to about what was going on in her life and about the ghost and demons. She found out more about herself and how to stop this demon that had been following her around in her dreams.
Logan introduced her to this secret club at their high school called The Orion Circle. The Orion Circle was a group of people that had special abilities like Logan and Kacie. She also found out that there were different chapters at other schools all over the country as well kids and adults too. The Orion Circle helped people whose homes, hotels, motels or inns were haunted by trying to help the ghost move on. They investigated some real hauntings and a few hoaxes too. They met some good ghost and some evil ones as well.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Tortured Souls. I loved all the characters. Some were bad*ass and some were just a barrel of laughs who kept you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what they were going to do or say next. I think Kacie held herself well with all that she had been through with her mom leaving her when she was a little girl and having to live with the ghost and demons all by her little old self. In my opinion she was one tough cookie. I mean how many kids could go through what she has and turned out to be the good hearted soul that she is?
Who or what do all these ghost and demons want with Kacie? You really want to know? Want me to tell you? Well I can’t actually do that now can I? That would spoil the whole book for you and you wouldn’t enjoy it or have anything to look forward too. So if you want to know more then you are just going to have to go and get your hands on your own copy. I am quite sure Kimber would greatly appreciate it very much and besides you will get a good story to boot. One that you will fall in love with right from the very beginning. So what are you waiting for? Go get your copy now. We would really like to hear what you think about Tortured Souls. I can’t wait to get started on the next book Twisted Sisters.
