Lonely Souls (The Witch Avenue Series, #1) by Karice Bolton




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.

ARC Review:


This was an enjoyable read, especially because there were some new things I haven't read about in any other books. First of all, the concept of lonely souls; something that can be found in different religions and/or beliefs.
Then the way magic was portrayed here. It was a mix of what witches/Wiccans practise now and the magic that is often found in fantasy books like Harry Potter. Quite interesting and original.
I also liked the attention the author paid to all the herbs and their meanings.


When it comes to characters, Triss was quite likeable. I enjoyed her stubbornness and bossiness, but her ability to be still kind and caring.
What I appreciated about Logan was his slight inclination to the dark side, it made him more complex and believable. And in general, I liked the darker tone this book sometimes had.


The story was quite heavy on romance, which I didn't mind, but I would probably prefer more mystery and background of the magic and witches in this series. However, I think we are going to learn more about that in the next book, which I'm surely going to read. Oh, and the last chapter was amazing! :)
