After almost a century of searching for his soulmate, Mitchell Lang fears the worst—he is g ...more
The Soul’s Mark: Found by Ashley Stoyanoff is the first book in her Soul’s Mark series. This is a YA vampire book in which Ms. Stoyanoff provides us with a new take on the whole "soul mate" concept. Essentially, the story goes that long ago a pissed off witch cursed all vampires and had their souls tore from them. This left our vampire friends soulless monsters with their only chance of redemption being when they found the human that their souls are tied to. This human is their other half, their ...more
The Soul's Mark: Found by Ashley Stoyanoff seems like it's going to be just another paranormal novel, but there's a rich backstory here, and we are introduced to Amelia, who is a teenager who has gone through a devastating experience, but wins a scholarship to a prestigious school and it seems all ...more

I don't want to give too much away on this one. There are so many facets to this story and as you read you will figure them out. I really struggled with the firs...more
Above all, it was a fun reading with an impeccable writing and unique storyline combined with perfectly constructed characters. A nice twist on soulmates, a refreshing premise with vampires and some magic. Definitely a fantastic start for a series!
The whole book goes around Amelia, and the story begins when she earns a scholarship and move to her "dream house" and meet her ...more
Thought the main character is quite rebellious, it showed how instinct, life experiences and friends , teaching us that no matter what, we, ourselves should have a say in our life.

Amelia is a broken girl that has been in foster care after her parents were murdered. She wins a scholarship for a university that pays for everything and finally has a chance to get away. During the first chapter or two I thought she would be a weak, shy young woman. But then as she met the people she moved into a castle with, her person ...more
At first when I heard this book was about Vampires I was a little disappointed. As we all know, that genre has been done to death, but the story was so original, it didn't take long to get past my vampire prejudice. I had just read a book that was quite a disappointment and was thrilled that this one grabbed hold of my interest and wouldn't let go. I read this book in one day, and didn't want it to end.
What I love about stories of soulmates is the intensity of the two characters, especially the ...more
I absolutely loved the writing style of this book! The ch ...more
"The first thing you should know is that soulmates are real. They are not just some romantic idea. We are made for one person and one person alone."
The Souls Mate:FOUND Has made me fall in love with vampires again, I'll still having a love/hate relationship with YA novels but hey I'm super happy because I haven't read a good vamp novel since Dracula, I'm more of a shifter kinda girl but I read the synopsis then I was hooked, I just had to read it and it didn't disappo ...more

Amelia has just won a scholarship, and is hoping this can be the start of a new life. Her parents were brutally murdered years ago, and she longs to put all of this behind her and start college. However when she arrives, her "scholarship" is odd as hell: she lives in a palatial mansion with insa ...more
It was a little disappointing when we did not get to see more of the past lives of "Millie", I was interested enough to have enjoyed reading more of that section of her life, but wait I am getting ahead of my self. ") often do that.
I believe and felt A.S did a wonderful job unfolding the story and the characters made me feel as if they were my fr ...more
The Souls Mark: FOUND is the first book in The Souls Mark series. As with most first books in a series you have the getting to know the characters faze. And while that is true with this book, it is also packed with action, romanc ...more
Okay, where to start...the plot was really strong (as it had strong support). The storyline was obviously better than Twilight (sorry for all those Twilight lovers, but I just HATE it with capital H A T E). The vampires were so realistic, they didn't sparkle like little girlies mixed with glitter and they took everything nice and slowly. Although they told her the truth near the end/middle, the story progressed in a nice pace, showing that this st ...more

The song i "assign" to this book is......"My Body" By Young the Giant!!!!
Okay so for my first thoughts are these: it started off strong, i stayed up until about 2:30 in the morning got about half way through the book and only stopped because i had to go to sleep because i had school the next day. Unfortunately for me this is where it started to go down hill. i don't really know if it was because i took a break from it or w ...more
I would like to start off by saying that I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I could not put it down. I love to read about vampires. I thought that this was an innovative approach with vampires, vampires having soulmates. I definitely cannot wait until the next book in the series comes out.
The book is about a shy girl (Amelia) that is just going off to college. Her parents have died 5 years ago; she just recently left the foster care p ...more
I loved the characters. The vampires were not your ordinary blood-sucking, nighttime only scary vampires. They can go outside in the sun ,they can eat food but it's just for fun (so to speak), and they lose their soul. It was put on them by a scorned witch -that the soul of the vampire is attached to a human and they are destined to wonder through seve ...more
I picked this book up this morning and couldn’t put it down until I was finished. I was enthralled by Amelia’s character and couldn’t believe the changes that Mitchell went through in just one book. Not one single character in the book is a cardboard cut-out place holder, ...more
