The Soul Guide Series Book 2
Releases October 21st!
Still reeling from the secrets revealed within the Veil, Sybil finds
herself getting more than she’d ever bargained for. Having to manage
her new gifts is hard enough let alone having to cope with the
barrage of memories that aren’t even her own.
Could becoming the Soul Guide be the biggest mistake of Sybil’s life or her
bravest decision yet? She couldn’t tell you, to busy dealing with the
responsibility that her new role brings and avoiding the growing
residents of Clayhill to find out.
And yet, hiding away isn’t an option.
With the arrival of terrified young Estelle, Sybil is forced to face
reality and become the warrior she was destined to be. There are far
worst things happening beyond the safety of Clayhill and she doesn’t
have the option of turning a blind eye, especially when the ‘worst
things’ involve her own beloved dad.
With Estelle’s revelations, action must be taken. Can the unlikely group
work together to save the children locked away in the depths of the
Masters home or will the Mephisto succeed in tearing them apart? Read
book two of The Soul Guide series to find out.
In Tortured Souls, alliances are made, friendships are forged, hearts
are broken and the battle of light versus dark has truly begun.
