Released Souls: Book #3

Triss and Logan’s love is becoming stronger by the day as they harness the powers between them, but will that make them blind to the evil they’re facing?
After uncovering startling information about her family, Triss is determined to right the wrongs of her ancestors. Triss and Logan uncover who has infiltrated the covens across the globe, and they realize the plans of the dark side are far more sinister than they’d ever imagined.
As the power of this hidden world is exposed, Triss learns her role in the covens. With Logan, Dace and Bakula’s assistance, Triss is now able to fully realize the abilities her ancestors have given her.
It won’t be long until the dark forces regain their strength, especially as their leader, Eben, continues his quest for a power that can never be revoked. Triss must stop him before it is too late.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have to say that when I saw that I could be apart of the blog tour and review Released Souls, I jumped at the chance. I love Karice’s books and with each new book I think she just keeps getting better and better.

While reading Released Souls I had an array of emotions going on. They ranged from excitement, a little disappointment and then there was of course the ending. Being that this is the third book in the series I will no my best not to put any spoilers in here but it will be hard as there is just so much to talk about.

I have to say that I love this series but, the farther into I get and the more Triss and Logans relationship develops I really wish it was more of an NA/Adult than a YA. This is where the disappointment comes into play, I really want to know what is going on behind those close doors..in detail. Maybe I just like getting to see the raw feelings behind the love that people share and I feel it can bring you closer to the characters. But this is just my option of course and it doesn’t take away from the book I just enjoy that aspect of books when it is done right. I guess it is a good thing we don’t have to much detail since Triss isn’t even 20, which is another good thing.
I felt that this book was more about Triss and her development with her skills and her love with Logan. We learn a good bit about what type of witch Triss is, her talents, her passion for logan and her feelings for her family. The situations that ensue throughout the book while, connecting it to the overall story to destroy the Praedivinus order and restore the Covens, Triss learns so much about herself and what she is willing to do for everyone around her. The action was there but it wasn’t as intense as I was expecting it to be. Triss is coming into her own now and she knows she will stop at nothing to make sure that the balance between good and evil is restored and the Covens can practice how they want without fear, this includes putting her own life on the line. I have to say that even though I have times where I just want to tell Triss to stop being so stubborn, I really enjoy her character, she is a strong person overcoming obstacles few people have to. Logan is still the loving guy he has been and proud of his girl. With their families save they have plenty of time to spend alone and to practice as each new power ascends to Triss. I am looking forward to the next book with all the lead up that this one has. There are so many questions I need answers too. I am just a fan girl when it comes to this series.

If you haven’t started reading this series yet and you love witches and magic you should go and grab Lonely Souls now, while it is still Free at Amazon. While not everyone likes the same things, I enjoyed this book and recommend this to you if like  Ya’s.

I received this book from the author for my honest review.
