**Currently Free on Amazon**

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.

The realm of Altered Souls brings nothing but unrest, deceit, and pain forcing Triss to come face to face with heartbreak from her past.
Facing a betrayal like never before, Triss questions everything she thought she knew about her family, coven, and abilities.
With the help of Logan, she embarks on a journey enabling her to confront the dark side of magic and the person who controls it. Realizing Triss’s ancestors have been seduced for centuries by the dark side, Triss and Logan must ensure no more in their world fall victim to the realm of Altered Souls, even if that means ending the ones they love.
Title: Released Souls
Author: Karice Bolton
Series: The Witch Avenue Series #3
Age Group: New Adult
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Triss and Logan’s love is becoming stronger by the day as they harness the powers between them, but will that make them blind to the evil they’re facing?
After uncovering startling information about her family, Triss is determined to right the wrongs of her ancestors. Triss and Logan uncover who has infiltrated the covens across the globe, and they realize the plans of the dark side are far more sinister than they’d ever imagined.
As the power of this hidden world is exposed, Triss learns her role in the covens. With Logan, Dace and Bakula’s assistance, Triss is now able to fully realize the abilities her ancestors have given her.
It won’t be long until the dark forces regain their strength, especially as their leader, Eben, continues his quest for a power that can never be revoked. Triss must stop him before it is too late.
Karice married the love of her life who she met in high school, and she still can't get over how cute and funny he is. They have two English Bulldogs that are the sweetest bullies in the world, and they use their cuteness to get what they want. Karice loves the snow and gravitates towards the stuff as often as possible! She enjoys skiing and tries really hard to snowboard, but often makes a nice little area to sit while everyone zips by on their board. She enjoys writing, and she also loves to read just about anything with print.

**May contain spoilers for Lonely Souls, but will try to avoid as much as possible**

Sometimes the second book in a series does not quite measure up to the first one, this is most defiantly not the case with Altered Souls. It is a fast-paced read, with action, romance, and danger around every corner. Triss really comes into her own in this book, and it think her transition is the best part of the book. Altered Souls starts where Lonely Souls leaves off, and it does not slow down from that point on.

Triss and Logan’s relationship is one of the best I have seen in a young adult romance. It is honest and caring, while each of them values what the other one has to say and offer. I really like the support the relationship provides to both Triss and Logan. It is a mature relationship emotionally, and I really wish this type of relationship would show up more in young adult literature.

Triss is really at her best in this book. She is determined to face down whatever is in her path to save those she cares about, even when she would like to run away. I really admire that quality in a character, and Triss really embodies it. As she begins to lose trust in those closest to her, she knows that it is up to her and Logan to put a stop to the danger threatening the Wiccan world.

This book is full of magic in both the story and in the way the story is written, a truly magical read. I almost did not want the story to end, but I know that it only means I need to get my hands on the newest book in the series, Released Souls!  If you have not started this series, make sure to grab the first book Lonely Souls, which is currently FREE on Amazon!
