Review: Dark Souls by Paula Morris

Welcome to York, England.
Mist lingers in the streets.
Narrow buildings cast long shadows.
This is the most haunted city in the world. . . .
Miranda Tennant arrives in York with a terrible, tragic secret. She is eager to lose herself amid the quaint cobblestones, hoping she won't run into the countless ghosts who supposedly roam the city. . . .
Then she meets Nick, an intense, dark-eyed boy who knows all of York's hidden places and histories. Miranda wonders if Nick is falling for her, but she is distracted by another boy — one even more handsome and mysterious than Nick. He lives in the house across from Miranda and seems desperate to send her some sort of message. Could this boy be one of York's haunted souls?
Soon, Miranda realizes that something dangerous — and deadly — is being planned. And she may have to face the darkest part of herself in order to unravel the mystery — and find redemption.

This is an exhilarating story of mystery and madness. The main character is witty and charming with a hidden secret. The storyline is full of never ending threads that need woven together. The main character and her new friends do a wonderful job of tying them all to one another. Taking a ʺHolidayʺ is never easy, or so it would seem. The book has a lot of strange and crucial plot points that finally come together in the end. I was a little disappointed with the ending though. Hopefully, a sequel will make everything turn out right. All in all it is a good book. I would like to read more from this author.
