When Souls Tear
A historical fantasy adventure for teens set between Victorian London and a darker parallel city. It's 1858, Ava is back in London and time snatchers are still at large. Ava is no closer to completing the task her dying mother set her, destroying the remaining time snatchers and ending snatching in two worlds. With her father and Phoebe suffering the effects of being torn and Jack back in Donlon, Ava is on her own. She…

A thrilling fight between following destiny and defining fate. All the things that tie everything together, and everything that tears them apart. The novel brings ideas of trauma and connection, of life and what lies after, and in between. The tension is hidden, under a blanket of mystery and forgotten tales of family. Lies among peers and tales from long ago. I loved the suspense and acknowledgement of connection and description of feelings was impeccable. Personally I would rate this book a 4.5 stars out of 5. It was the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon, a little bit of fun and a whole lot of excitement.
