Lost Souls: Promo & Excerpt ABG blog tours


Lost Souls

Souls who refuse to pass into the afterlife become wandering spirits, trapped between the world of the living and the dead. These are the Lost Souls. Some of these Lost Souls have banded together, uniting to fight against an evil endangering both their existence and the safety of the human world they once inhabited. This evil has taken shape in unholy creatures called the Changed, beings who were once Lost Souls but who are now dark, dangerous and disturbed monsters. The Changed feed on the energy of the Lost Souls, growing stronger with each Lost Soul they drain. The ultimate goal of the Changed is to harness enough energy to return to the land of the living by possessing the body of a human. The mission of the Lost Souls is to stop them…

Christian Thompson is killed in a car accident but refuses to pass into the afterlife because of his protective need to shelter his daughter Aurora from her cruel mother. He soon discovers there are others like him, other wandering spirits trapped between the world of the living and the dead. He joins this larger group of Lost Souls in their struggle to destroy the evil endangering their existence.

Unholy creatures threaten both Christian’s new world and his old. They are entities called the Changed, beings who were once Lost Souls but who are now dark, dangerous and disturbed monsters. Their ultimate goal is to return to the land of the living by possessing the body of a human.

Sam and her brother Ben, along with their new friend Christian, have just defied the leader of the Lost Souls. Outcast from their former group, the three of them battle the dark forces of the Changed on their own. They investigate the mysterious disappearance of one of their Lost Soul brethren. As the search deepens, they come to the chilling realization that their nemesis, Scala, has escaped his centuries-old prison with revenge on his twisted mind. A wicked possession leads to grave consequences and the Lost Souls must make a difficult choice between life and death for an innocent victim.

“Sam?”


She turned to find Ben standing in the doorway, Christian just behind him. She quickly looked away, wiping at her cheeks, at her face and stood, bowing her head so they wouldn’t see. “What are you doing here? Where’s the Dad?”


“Are you okay?” Ben asked softly.


“Yeah,” she said, but her voice was shaky and thick. And she couldn’t look up at Ben because he would know she was not okay.


“Christian, give us a moment,” Ben asked.


He knew. Damn him, he knew her too well.


“It wasn’t your fault,” Ben whispered. “You saw… we saw Damien die. We couldn’t know he’d become a Soul.”


Oh, God. Kill me now, she thought. She couldn’t do this right now. She sighed, trying desperately to keep her emotions under control. “Eugene told you. I’m okay. Really.”


“No, Sam. You’re not okay.”


She sat on the side of the bed trying to get hold of herself, to push the feelings aside. The memories were too painful. She had buried them for so many years. “We have to concentrate on Scala now.”


Ben nodded and sat beside her. “That’s why you have to be all right. You can’t think of him now. It makes you vulnerable. And we can’t afford to make mistakes.”


“I know.” She stood up and looked at the pictures on the kid’s dresser. It was a team basketball picture, two men standing on either side of the team like bookmarks. Coaches. She felt Ben’s gaze on her, contemplating. She turned to him. “There’s just one thing…” She looked Ben in the eye. “Please tell me you didn’t know.”


A displeased frown etched his brow. “I didn’t know. There’s no way. You know I would have told you.”


She nodded and turned back to the kid’s desk. It was remarkably clean of miscellaneous objects, of any kind of item that would give her a clue about the boy. A computer screen sat in the center, on and humming softly as if waiting for the boy to return. She knew Ben would have told her. Or did she? Would he try to protect her as Eugene had?


“You believe me, right?” Ben asked.


Sam nodded again, refusing to believe the doubt festering in her mind. He would have told her. She pulled open a drawer. It was filled with scattered sheets of papers and notes.


“You can’t think of him as your husband anymore. He’s a Changed.”


She winced at the proclamation. Even though she knew Damien was a Changed, he was still her husband. And she couldn’t escape the guilt that weighed her down. If she had been there, if she had only known… she could have prevented Damien from Changing. One thing was certain, she would never be able to hurt Damien. And that fact was the most dangerous of all.
