I am glad that I didn't have to wait a long time to get hold of this book. Lonely Souls has left me bemused and deprived of the ending I so longed to read, I had to read this one to seek that ending! Well, I am not disappointed with the ending of Altered Souls. It really has all the ingredients for it to be a successful novel.

In Altered Souls, I like the way Bolton has developed Triss’ character into a stronger and forceful young woman who will do anything she can to save the people she loves a

Altered Souls picks up right where Lonely Souls left off. Triss is determined to get her mother back and do whatever she needs to do to achieve that goal. But this journey brings with it discoveries about her ancestry, and she herself will need to learn to confront the concept of dark magic, battling her own demons and learning about the power within herself. With Logan at her side, she enters a world of Altered Souls and knows that not only do they have to save them, they need to prevent anyone ...more

Second book in the Witch Avenue Series. Triss and Logan are a couple and are still searching for her mother plus trying to figure out about Triss' family history and what if anything it has to do with the present. At this point, they are pretty sure that Triss' dad had her mother but the question is why. He walked out on Triss and her mom when Triss was still a baby. Logan has admitted he really delved into black magic and that his teacher was Triss' dad. Trevor, a friend of Triss from high scho ...more

OH MY GOODNESS! I just love this series! It gets better and better! I can not say enough great things about Altered Souls. A perfect mix of romance (Logan = swoon), paranormal awesomeness and heart pounding excitement! The story is a non stop adrenaline rush especially with Triss and Logan finding themselves in such dangerous situations. I wanted to jump through the pages and kick some butt for them. I couldn't possibly put this book down once I started it. My heart ached one minute then soared ...more

While I did enjoy reading this book and was interested early on, there are a couple things I almost wish were done just a bit differently. For instance Triss’ decision on practising grey magic seemed almost too abrupt from her initial abhorrence to dark magic in general from the first book; a more gradual temptation would have flowed better in my mind. As well there was still no mention of how the coven world plays in the normal society, for instance whether it is known to the general public or ...more

Altered Souls packs one hell of a punch all into one book. In comparison to Lonely Souls, there is much more at stake for Triss in her attempts to bring her mother back from the talons her nefarious father, Nicholas, has sunk into her, but to also stop her father's wicked plans upon the souls of good people. I found that Altered Souls did a wonderful job in keeping up pace, the reader entertained and wanted more during the end of every chapter.

There is much for Triss to handle in the second inst

I really enjoyed the first book in the series, Lonely Souls, so I was really excited to read this one and see where the story would lead. This one gets a lot deeper into the troubles they are facing and there is no one that Logan and Triss can trust. They know that they need to go to Triss's father because that is the center of all the issues. It's very dangerous and it's not only their lives on the line, but those of innocent people too. This book was suspenseful, had some great action, and a l ...more

Plain and simple, I enjoy this series. I really liked the first book, Lonely Souls, and was anxious to read this book. I love stories about witchcraft and I feel like Karice Bolton does a really great job at explaining what's happening so the reader can truly follow the story. It was also great to see Triss and Logan again.

I have liked Triss from the beginning of this journey. She is just a likable character. I appreciate that she remains true to herself too. Yes, she makes some risky decisions

Sometimes the second book in a series does not quite measure up to the first one, this is most defiantly not the case with Altered Souls. It is a fast-paced read, with action, romance, and danger around every corner. Triss really comes into her own in this book, and it think her transition is the best part of the book. Altered Souls starts where Lonely Souls leaves off, and it does not slow down from that point on.

Triss and Logan’s relationship is one of the best I have seen in a young adult ro

I knew after reading the first book of the series that I would be reading this one, because the desire to know what was going to happen next was too strong to be denied. And I can definitely say that this book was well worth the read, murr! Where with book one I had problems getting into the story, with this one, I couldn’t put it down. From the first page I was hooked and I wasn’t satisfied until I had reached the very end. Well done, Karice, well

I have read a few books from Karice Bolton by now, and other than the fact that she is one of the nicest ladies around, she writes great books. I always know that the quality level will be high when I pick up one of her books. I have also come to learn that she really steps up her game in the second book in the series. What I mean by this is that second books tend to either be a hit or fall flat for me. But in the Witch Avenue Series, as well as her Watchers trilogy, she takes the characters and ...more

This second book oh the series was an easy read. For a second book, it was fast paced and an enjoyable read. A little too much romance for my taste, and lot of the scenes were a bit more than I care for, but still clean enough for a YA reader. I didn't think the romance triangle worked too well, and the author kind of work her way out of that triangle on this book; although I still wonder if somehow it will come back to hunt the main character on the third book. Also fairies were introduced on t ...more

I received a copy of this book for an honest review as part of a blog tour.

MY OVERVIEW: I didn’t enjoy Altered Souls as much as I did Lonely Souls. I actually got really nervous in the beginning that the author was going to bring in a love triangle thing after everything Triss has gone through with Logan.

PROS: So, I had an issue with the white vs. dark magic in the last book and thought it was done a whole lot better in this one. There was more explanation into it and I like the “g

First of all I want to give a huge kudos to Bolton for NOT making this book centered on a love triangle. I got pretty nervous when it looked like it was heading that way. I cannot handle anyone getting in between my Logan and Triss.

And let me tell you something…characters made this book amazing. Triss really grew into her character and is becoming one determined young lady. But there are times she gets a little too caught up in her problems and starts making rash decisions (and spells)...if she

Ok, thank the sweet, 8 pound 6 ounce, baby Jesus that I didn't read Lonely Souls until this book was available! Altered Souls starts right where we finished in Lonely Souls, which is one of the many reasons I love this series. I really hate when I am reading a series and each book starts the same as the one before, introducing characters that we've already met; and it takes 3-5 chapters before anything exciting happens.

So many questions were answered in this book - another reason to read and lov

Altered Souls is the second book in the "The Witch Avenue Series" by Karice Bolton. In this book Triss learns all about betrayal in the worst kind.

Throughout the book Triss has gone from the lonely devastated girl we first saw in book one "Lonely Souls" to a beautiful independent women, a witch and has advanced in her abilities from the help of Logan, of course.

I couldn't wait to buy this book, after reading Lonely Souls I was counting down to the release of Altered Souls, I couldn't wait to get more Triss & Logan... And I was drawn straight back in as the story continues where the previous book left off.

The book is full of twists and turns and fantastic heart-dropping moments that bring out every emotion your body holds. I was so lost inside the story that when I was worried or scared I felt my heart speeding up. It felt the roller coaster of emot

Altered Souls is the second book in the Witch Avenues Series by Karice Bolton. If you are unfamiliar with the first book, Lonely Souls then please go read it now. While there will not be much in the way of spoilers, I think it is a good idea to start a new series from the first book.

While you’re at it be sure to check out her Watcher’s Trilogy, and her new novella, Taken!

Full of revelations and shocking surprises, Altered Souls is an exciting sequel to Lonely Souls.

Middle books in a series are tricky. Authors must be able to keep the series storyline moving forward without giving away too much, enough to keep readers hanging for the finale. Sometimes, the book winds up being more of a "filler" than relevant to the overall arc of the series. In Altered Souls, author Karice Bolton did that job very well.

In Lonely Souls, Triss had to balance a reconnection with h

Well I am glad I kept reading after finishing the first book. The second was definitely better and faster paced. I just got books 3 and 4 because I have to finish the series but I am really hoping they'll be even better. Not a favorite series so far.

The witch avenue series is quickly proving to be one of those series that stays with me long after I finish the last page. I think it's because of the characters being so real. I can relate to the emotions and nothing is oversimplified. The author writes in a way that makes me feel like I am there with everyone feeling what they are feeling.

The swoon worthy moments alone are worth reading Altered Souls. Triss and Logan are an incredible pair. I love the hidden darkness of Logan, but I like how t
