Last year I read Anne B Cole’s “Souls Entwined” and found it to be quite enjoyable. I was honored when she asked if I wanted to read the sequel, “Souls Estranged”, book two of the Souls Trilogy.
“Souls Estranged” picked up where “Souls Entwined” left off. Gretta and Sam are back from their time travel journey but their adventure is far from over. Gretta leaves, haunted by the few memories she has, the many holes in her memories and the decision that it’s only by leaving she can keep Sam and her loved ones safe.
Through Gretta’s adventures, we are introduced to new characters, both likeable and not so much, and we’re reacquainted with familiar ones. We rekindle the lovers Anya and Lorenzo, cheer for ancestors Roxanna and Katarina and growl at the evil pirate Kadir, all from “Souls Entwined”.
There are gut-wrenching moments as Gretta and Sam struggle to find happiness beneath the curse of Gretta’s ring and pulse-pounding pages as Gretta battles constant danger. The action changes from character to character, but seldom stops. I kept wanting to turn the page to see what happened next.
I can’t hardly wait for the third book in the series!
