Sometimes Rest in Peace isn't an option.
Kacie Ramsey sees ghosts—and it's ruining her life. Her mother left, her father blames her, and no matter how hard she tries, she can't keep the ghosts away. Now a new power has emerged. Nightly visions of grisly murders and a relentless predator draw her to the brink of insanity.
When the phantom appears at a party, Kacie's longtime crush, Logan, saves her. He invites her to join the Orion Circle, a group of supernatural hunters with chapters in schools all over the country. Through the Circle, Kacie learns to embrace her spiritual powers, and for the first time in her life she feels in control rather than a victim.
But the Foxblood Demon will not give up so easily. A demented serial killer in life who trapped the souls of the thirteen children he murdered, imprisoning them within the walls of his mansion. Now in death, he plots his return while drawing power from the pure souls of the children. He recognizes something in Kacie he's never seen before—a medium powerful enough to provide a vessel for his tainted soul.
Kacie can't ignore the tortured souls of the children crying out to her every night. With Logan at her side, she will fight the Foxblood Demon. But can they banish this powerful phantom, or will Kacie lose not only her body, but her eternal soul to the monster.
Tortured Souls is a great book for lovers of young adult paranormal romances. The plot and the action are fast paced and kept my attention easily the whole time. I loved the concept of the Orion club, a secret society of sorts. I wish my high school had one. It is comprised of a group of individual students and adults that either have some kind of special paranormal talent or have an affinity for some aspect of the paranormal. They do paranormal investigations. It kind of reminded me of the Anime series, Ghost Hunt in that aspect.
Kacie is the main character and she has spent most of her life suppressing her powers because her parents didn’t “approve” of them. I liked that she found her home within the Orion Circle. There are lots of paranormal, and faux paranormal investigations going on. I liked the mixture of things that I saw the club investigate. Plus, the overarching storyline of the big baddie from Kacie’s nightmares was really well done as well. It was the right amount of creepy and interesting to hold my attention. This is definitely going to be a series that I continue. The romance was sweet and the paranormals were wonderful. If you like YA Paranormal the Orion Circle is a great series for you to check out.
