Book #1 

It’s two weeks before Triss turns 18, and her world is about to change into the most magical one imaginable as she readies herself to enter The Witch Avenue Order... that is until her mother’s disappearance. Instead of celebrating her transformation, she finds herself spreading rose petals into her mother’s empty grave.

When Logan, her best friend from junior high, moves back to town for college, he vows to help her find the answers she so desperately seeks surrounding her mother’s disappearance. As they begin uncovering clues, it becomes apparent that the life of white magic they both grew up loving is not what the majority practices, and their lives are in danger.

With a haunting feeling that her mother may still be alive, she begins to hear a call to the wilderness. Triss realizes that in order to find the answers she needs, she must learn the ways of her ancestors and become the hunter, not the hunted before it’s too late, and she becomes part of the lonely souls.

Book #2

The realm of Altered Souls brings nothing but unrest, deceit, and pain forcing Triss to come face to face with heartbreak from her past.

Facing a betrayal like never before, Triss questions everything she thought she knew about her family, coven, and abilities.

With the help of Logan, she embarks on a journey enabling her to confront the dark side of magic and the person who controls it. Realizing Triss’s ancestors have been seduced for centuries by the dark side, Triss and Logan must ensure no more in their world fall victim to the realm of Altered Souls, even if that means ending the ones they love.

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.

Karice married the love of her life who she met in high school, and she still can't get over how cute and funny he is. They have two English Bulldogs that are the sweetest bullies in the world, and they use their cuteness to get what they want. Karice loves the snow and gravitates towards the stuff as often as possible! She enjoys skiing and tries really hard to snowboard, but often makes a nice little area to sit while everyone zips by on their board. She enjoys writing, and she also loves to read just about anything with print.

My Thoughts:

I read Lonely Souls (book one). This book is appropriate for all ages. I have to say that I Love all three covers. The fact that the colors are mostly dull with just a hint of color, makes them all the more brilliant!

What a spell binding adventure! From the first page to the last not a dull moment can be found.

In this book, Triss finds out some family history that isn't flattering. She has a mystery to figure out. She needs to determine every one's true intentions. And she needs to determine if she will open her heart to love or not! This is just the tip of the iceberg so to speak. I told you, not a dull moment!

If you haven't already figured it out, in Lonely Souls you will find witches (both good and bad), suspense, danger, creepy creatures, spell-tastic action, mystery, and romance.

I recommend this book to all paranormal romance readers, those who like witch books, or those who  just want a gripping, face paced, fantastic book to read. My only regret is that I didn't read it sooner. Now I need to get the next two books and read them! 

I received a copy of this book from AToMR in exchange for my honest opinion. I honestly loved every minute of it! :-)

I received some swag from Karice and it is AWESOME! There were soaps and beautiful book marks. Thank you Karice!

Lonely Souls is FREE on Amazon!
