When Ava Flynn walks away from a scholarship to Georgetown and moves into her grandmother’s abandoned summer home in coastal Maine, she steps into the center of a centuries-old curse. On her first night, she notices a mysterious leather-clad stranger looking up at her third-story window. For weeks, everywhere she goes, Ava catches more glimpses of him, but she can never get close enough to find out who he is.
Over three hundred years ago, Lady Catherine Fairchild risked everything to protect her unborn child, sending a ripple through time that would change Ava’s future. As the mystery unravels, the horrifying consequences of Lady Catherine’s choices drag Ava deeper into a world she never knew existed, trapping her in a conflict that’s been raging since before she was born. A winner-take-all battle for her soul.
Splintered Souls is about a blessing, turned curse, that seems hopeless. In 1654, Lady Catherine Fairchild visited a witch to bless her unborn child. In that blessing she asked for him to find and possess his soulmate. Despite the warnings of the witch, she insisted on the blessing. That blessing turned into a curse when she had not one baby, but two. Twins who share a soul who will long for the same soulmate.
Holy Moley, I'm so confused! There is so much going on in book one. There is no way to describe without spoiling the story. We've got time travel, a good twin, a bad twin or are they both good and bad? Has the curse driven Maddox and Laithe mad or just desperate in their longing for their one true soulmate? I have no idea who to root for. I'm not sure if one twin is more deserving or not and can't imagine how this can end happily. Ava is their soulmate so even if they can sever one of the ties, then that twin will not have a soulmate. It's too bad she can't have both! ARC provided by NetGalley.
