First of all ... Kudos to Miss Smith. This book is crazy. It's amazing. If you've read the series so far, Shadow souls is the best one. Nightfall was already such an amazing book, so many things happened, supernatural creatures we had never heard of made the appearance, and nothing's normal anymore. The author has an incredible imagination. Everything's perfect, the details, the name of the demons, the places, the characters ... I'm speechless. It's impossible to tell you everything that happens in Shadow souls because so many things happen at such a fast pace. You will never get bored, that's for sure. Elena is fierce and so are her best friends, we discover a whole new side of Damon and new characters are introduced. Just ... go get it now, you won't regret it! Oh and ... there's the worst cliff hanger in the end. ;) I anxiously await the sequel.
My Rating: ♥♥♥½
