The "Lost Souls" Series by Laurel O’Donnell {Book Review}

Book 1

Christian Thompson is killed in a car accident but refuses to pass into the afterlife because of his protective need to shelter his daughter Aurora from her cruel mother. He soon discovers there are others like him, other wandering spirits trapped between the world of the living and the dead. He joins this larger group of Lost Souls in their struggle to destroy the evil endangering their existence.

Unholy creatures threaten both Christian’s new world and his old. They are entities called the Changed, beings who were once Lost Souls but who are now dark, dangerous and disturbed monsters. Their ultimate goal is to return to the land of the living by possessing the body of a human.

Little does Christian realize that his decision to refuse his own death will endanger the very life of the daughter he has vowed to protect.

Book 2

Sam and her brother Ben, along with their new friend Christian, have just defied the leader of the Lost Souls.  Outcast from their former group, the three of them battle the dark forces of the Changed on their own.  They investigate the mysterious disappearance of one of their Lost Soul brethren.  As the search deepens, they come to the chilling realization that their nemesis, Scala, has escaped his centuries-old prison with revenge on his twisted mind.  A wicked possession leads to grave consequences and the Lost Souls must make a difficult choice between life and death for an innocent victim.

Laurel pens her characters interesting and believable in these well written episodes and I found it kept my attention throughout both books.  The plot in both episodes are well written and they flow nicely through to the end.  Recommended for all paranormal readers.

I give "The Lost Souls Series - Episode 1 and 2 a 4 star rating.
