Lenzi hears voices and has visions - gravestones, floods, a boy with steel gray eyes. Her boyfriend, Zak, can't help, and everything keeps getting louder and more intense. Then Lenzi meets Alden, the boy from her dreams, who reveals that she's a reincarnated Speaker - someone who can talk to and help lost souls - and that he has been her Protector for centuries.

Now Lenzi must choose between her life with Zak and the life she is destined to lead with Alden. But time is running out: a malevolent spirit is out to destroy Lenzi, and he will kill her if she doesn't make a decision soon.

Why I'm Waiting: Firstly, I want to know exactly what a speaker is!! I love the idea of reincarnation and I've read wonderful reviews for this on Goodreads! Lucky we don't have to wait for this one too long :D

Penelope (Lo) Marin has always loved to collect beautiful things. Her dad's consulting job means she's grown up moving from one rundown city to the next, and she's learned to cope by collecting (sometimes even stealing) quirky trinkets and souvenirs in each new place--possessions that allow her to feel at least some semblance of home. 

But in the year since her brother Oren's death, Lo's hoarding has blossomed into a full-blown, potentially dangerous obsession. She discovers a beautiful, antique butterfly pendant during a routine scour at a weekend flea market, and recognizes it as having been stolen from the home of a recently murdered girl known only as "Sapphire"--a girl just a few years older than Lo. As usual when Lo begins to obsess over something, she can't get the murder out of her mind.

As she attempts to piece together the mysterious "butterfly clues," with the unlikely help of a street artist named Flynt, Lo quickly finds herself caught up in a seedy, violent underworld much closer to home than she ever imagined--a world, she'll ultimately discover, that could hold the key to her brother's tragic death.

Why I'm Waiting: I first saw this on Netgalley and got rejected but this sounds incredibly intriguing and different! Plus, check the cover out, it looks AWESOME!


  1. Yay for Shattered Souls! That cover! Gorgeous!!
    I haven't seen The Butterfly Clues before, but WOW! The cover is amazing, and it sounds amazing (and creepy XD)

  2. Soooo excited for both of these! They both sound AMAZING and yes, have gorgeous cover art. I love how the girl in Shattered Souls is... well, half a girl and half petals. So pretty! And any book with reincarnation is an instant win for me.

  3. I want to read Shattered Souls really bad! Great pick :)

  4. I've been looking forward to Shattered Souls for so long. The wait is almost over :-)

    My WOW

    I really want to read Shattered Souls too! Just like you, I'm a big fan of reincarnation and that cover is AMAZING! And I haven't heard of the other book before, but I love the sound of it! Very chilling!

    Awesome picks for your WOW, Taneika!! We're so similar in book types -- I'm definitely following you now! :)
