Old Souls

Read on February 24, 2013

Fast paced, characters that jump off the pages and a story that is unique and holds your attention right to the end. You'll be wishing this Novella was a full novel by the time you are done.


Sometimes we choose love, but sometimes, fate chooses for us.

Alyssa has started a new job, and from day one, she’s been haunted by dreams of a man she’s never met but can’t seem to forget. Then Alyssa meets her boss and her world comes to a grinding halt. It’s him. But as impossible as that is, things are about to get even stranger.

Mark is a man with secrets. Plagued by guilt and regret, he has spent countless years simply existing. They say you don’t know what you have until it’s gone, and no one knows that better than him. He’s lost a piece of himself he thought he could never get back. Until the day he met Alyssa for the first time…again.

When unexplainable events occur, the two learn that some actions have consequences so severe that even a powerful love may not overcome them

*The Author has given me this copy for a honest review..Thank you PA*

My Thoughts:

I loved this novella and truly hope that PA decides to turn it into a series. I was fortunate enough to be asked to read an early version and I can tell you that PA not only took the suggestions to heart but built on them. I absolutely loved her characters; Alyssa although dazed showed backbone, and an sense of honor and morality. Mark is someone who was poleaxed and came out grinning as if he received a new lease on life. The reader was able to connect with each character and PA did a fine job of making these characters multi dimensional,a bit more with Alyssa than Mark...but as I am hoping for a series I hope we find out more about Mark in upcoming books:) The story moved quickly and how PA crafts a plot makes it seem effortless almost like you are watching TV, it just reaches out and grabs you and doesn't let go until the very end. In this case the novella was only a 120 pages and could easily have been a full 250 page novel. Once again, PA hits one outta the ballpark. I can't wait to see more of these characters and learn more of this world.

*note I don't usually give novellas or short stories a 5/5 because it is difficult to build both a new world and characters and maintain a good story line in so short a space however PA accomplished this in the 120 pages.

5 shiny gold stars for Old Souls and anxiously awaiting further books by PA Lupton!
