My Tethered Soul
In this fast-paced sequel to My Sister’s Reaper, Zadie and Mara are back, and so is the reaper. In the past few months, Zadie has been protected. She’s been training with Chase and Lilura. Training for the day she turns seventeen. Because that is when a reaper will come for her as he does for all seventeen year old Vilas.
Dorothy Dreyer has created a really great series with these books. I’m not sure if this will be the final one or not as the ending of the book gives the reader closure, yet it leaves room for more to be told in the story.
The characters in My Tethered Soul are the same as in My Sister’s Reaper with the addition of a few more key players. They are well developed and all play important roles in the story. My favorite is still Lilura. She is Chase’s grandmother and Zadie and Mara’s Vila “tutor.” She is such a great strong woman though she is pretty cranky. Her love for the girls and her grandson is very evident in this story. Hunter, Chase’s older brother, shows up for this book and plays an important role in Mara’s life.
I don’t want to give away any of the plot because you need to read these books! They are fast-paced and action-packed! There’s not too much wasted dialog, which is a great thing! I don’t like books that are too “talky.” What Zadie has to go through is so frustrating for her and for the reader. You really want her to triumph over her trouble.
I highly recommend these books for those of you who enjoy young adult paranormal books. They are exciting and definitely worth adding to your TBR lists!
