  • "Good start to YA series"

    Overall

    This book is action packed in the sense that two more soul finders are discovered by the Benedicts and one of them is a very rare soul seeker who helps with the strength and love of her soul finder to rescue the soul finders and bring them back to the Benedicts. They may be broken thanks to an old enemy's mother trying to erase their brains, but with the seekers skills, anything is possible and Crystal will do whatever she can to put back what is right.



    Joss Stirling has not disappointed with this book as it still has the English anecdotes that make her stories full of humour and an easy, enjoyable read.



    It is not clear if there is going to be a fourth book, waiting to hear, but I hope there is as I would love to know whether the remaining three Benedicts do successfully find their soul finders.

  • "Enjoyable second instalment"

    Overall

    This is Yves and Phoenix story - they are brought together by crime and after convincing Phoenix that she is worth more than the life she was brought up on by the Sea,r they are destined to live happily ever after. However, they have to get to that point first and this story has action and conniving tactics that bring evil and good together and enjoy the ride to see who will win the overall fight.



    Joss Stirling has created a world of likeable characters that are easy to care for. This book is a fun enjoyable read and has plenty of laugh aloud moments which are shear delight.



    Definitely going straight on to the third book to see what's next for the Benedict family.

    Phoenix was raised within the Community, a gang of thieves with paranormal powers, under the control of a harsh master known as the Seer. The notion that there's a soul mate out there for every person with a paranormal gift is mere myth in Phoenix's world. That is until the Seer gives Phoenix the details of her next target, Yves Benedict. He's more than just her next victim, he is her destiny. To be together, Phoenix must break away from the Community, but resistance against the Seer puts them both in mortal danger.

Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is a great trial to her poor mother. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper manners - and the family can only hope that company never sees her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. So she enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality. But Sophronia soon realizes the school is not quite what her mother might have hoped.

    I was exhausted and hungry. I went to the cafeteria in the college and ate some food. It was German food of course, sausages, cheese, bread and fruit. I wasn't sure what the other dishes were, so I stuck to what looked edible for my taste. I sat at a table by myself and several moments later a male student sat next to me and introduced himself as Frans. I introduced myself as well. Trying to use the best German accent I had been taught in German class. My teacher would have been proud, because it worked!

    For 17-year-old Emma Wong, spending a summer in England should be a dream come true. Gorgeous scenery? Check. Lots of hot guys with accents? Yes, please. Spending two months with her mom, Dr. Mike (don't call him her stepdad), and their pooping, puking infant son? Not what she had in mind. It's a disaster even her favorite cherry red leather jacket can't fix (leather and spit-up so do not mix).

    "Go ahead," I said calmly. "Yell at me. Once again, all I remember is Jordan. Oh, yeah, and I remembered where I kept the chocolate, too. Only now, I think I'll share it rather than eat it all myself or do you have a problem with that?" His reply came out a sort of hissing growl. "You cannot like my best friend." Only one thing appeals to Sedona Keyes as much as chocolate - Jordan Merritt, her brother's best friend. But her brother is against it, so in favor of family peace, she sets her feelings aside.
