Olivia has left Caleb on his own to realize that their love is true, not something he feels because she is a Charmed. While Caleb is figuring this out, Olivia goes with the Brethern to learn and train her special skills. While training Olivia finds out the true story of her family, including that she has a family member still alive.

Olivia returns to Caleb, after he comes for her. Alec, Olivia’s guardian must accompany her to be sure she is kept safe. Alec and Gemma start having feelings and a re

This cover is one of my all time favorite covers!! I just love it and I especially love that the necklace (or one similar to it) has a big part in the story. I am a HUGE fan of Christine Wenrick and of this series. It has quickly become one of my favorites and Caleb and Olivia are definitely one of my favorite couples. The Charmed Souls made me fall even more in love with their characters. Caleb *sigh*

After the way The Charmed ended, I was so excited to jump back into this unique world created b

I was really excited when I received The Charmed Souls from Christine and I actually put the book that I was currently reading down to start reading this one instead. And I am kind of happy I did because.....

I think im inlove! It was that good! It took me about three days for me to finish this one since I had big problems putting it down lol.
The story was well thought trough and there was always action so it never felt slow. Evry page counted and was needed. In some books I have read I just feel

The followup to Christine Wenrick's debut book, The Charmed (which I recently reviewed) is even more engaging than its predecessor due in part to having already established the main characters and most, if not all their backgrounds. This left more time to focus on the storyline and the conflict at hand.

One major concern when reading a series is that the consistency of the characters will be lost from one book to the next but that is not the case in The

I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This review first appeared on Parajunkee's View.
In this sequel to The Charmed, Olivia finds her self living with her guardians and neck deep in the Brethren’s world. She works with Alec and the others to train and strengthen not only her body but her gifts.
I really enjoyed this book. Like really enjoyed it! I loved seeing more of Alec and her guardians. They are all full of swagger and sarcasm. Olivia very much “finds herself

In this second installment of The Charmed series, we pick up where we left off in the first book. Olivia decides it best to know exactly how to control her new powers and wants to prove to both herself and everyone else that has doubts, that Caleb loves her not for her Charmer abilities but because of her. She throws herself into training her training and becomes closer to her guardians there to protect her. She is quickly advised to keep a little distance between her and the other guardians bec ...more

If you haven't read this series yet, than you need to get started. This was a great continuance to the story! I loved how it gave a little more backround for Olivia and the twists in the second book are very interesting, to say the least. I love when a book can totally catch me off guard and throw a really good spin in there. I was definitely not expecting what happened at one point in the story. Very good twist indeed lol. There were more characters involved with Olivia in this book, and I love ...more

So at the end of The Charmed book one, I was left feeling like my heart had been ripped out and I was really looking forward to what Book 2 of The Charmed Series would have in store for us. Christine gripped us in Book 1 from the start and boy oh boy did she do it again with Book 2.

I was so engrossed with my reading on my commute that I missed my stop by not only one but two stops! I had to get off and go back to the right stop, all I can say is thank goodness for Flexi Time and also that on thi
I couldn’t wait to read the second story after reading the first, The Charmed, in the series. Although this is a connected story, you can definitely read it independently of the first so don’t let that stop you from enjoying a very good story.

In my review for The Charmed I said that this isn’t the typical vampiric retelling and thank goodness Wenrick didn’t make a liar out of me and does an excellent job of continuing along that line and not falling into any stereotypical traps. This book had m

This book is the second book in the ‘Charmed’ Trilogy, and kicks off a few days after the end of book 1 – ‘The Charmed’. **Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for book 1**
Olivia has agreed to go with Alec and the Brethren following the end of ‘The Charmed’, and they have taken her to a hotel (The Oracle), on a consecrated site where the Brethren stay and train, and vampires will be un

With a battle between Good vs. Evil and a swoon-worthy romance, The Charmed Souls is a great continuation of The Charmed Trilogy.

I have to admit, I was a little worried about picking up The Charmed Souls. Second books in a series are always tricky, even more so when the heroine and her leading man are separated, as Olivia and Caleb were at the end of book one. Because of that separation, although mostly necessary, it did take me a bit to warm up to this book. I understand that Olivia was doing

The Charmed is a surprisingly intimate book. Told in first person, the story unfolds very slowly. The reader has both time and space to create mental pictures, but isn’t left feeling like the story is dragging. Every detail is deliberate. There is action. There is blood. There is sex. There is emotion—a lot of emotion and it sucks you in. When I look ahead to see if my favorite character’s names appear, if I’m worried about them, then I know I’m hooked. Yeah, I looked ahead.

Deb’s Review:

Caleb is returning with a broken heart, his love was not enough to hold Olivia where he needs her the most, beside him. Now that things have begun will she be returning to him? Can he convince her that she is his true and only love? If it is possible I enjoyed Caleb more in this book than book one. Caleb character was fun in book one, he is furiously loyal, and moving in this book, he touched me.

I did not know what to expect with this being the second book of The Charmed Trilogy and the way the first book left off. We all know how many series tend to weaken a bit as they go on. That DID NOT happen here. It continued to hold strong, it’s actually my favorite so far! A definite must read for paranormal romance fans, I do recommend reading the series in order. Even though this can be read as a stand-alone (it was very well written), you’ll miss out on a great build between Olivia and Caleb ...more

I couldn’t wait to read this book. I wanted to find out what would happen between Olivia and Caleb, and I wasn’t disappointed. Christine Wenrick took me on a journey with many different twists and turns, up’s and downs.

Yet again, this book was full of intrigue; there were more characters that appeared on the pages as Olivia started her journey, learning about herself and her new talents. I was driven on to read by the developing storyline. I became captivated by Oli

We pick up in this book right where the first one ended, with Olivia leaving Caleb to go live and train with The Brethren. Olivia wants to be sure that the feelings Caleb has for her are true and not a spell from her being Charmed. Caleb knew even before she left him that he truly loved her and wanted nothing more in life than to be with her. For three long months, Olivia is away with Alec, her Guardian, training and becoming strong to protect herself from all the evil vampires. Wit

The Charmed Souls is the second installment in The Charmed Trilogy by Christine Wenrick. The Charmed Souls picks up roughly a week after the ending of The Charmed. Olivia is no longer in Seattle, but in the Cascade Mountains with her guardian Alec and the Brethren.

I have a feeling this series is going to be popular,(I know I'll be recommending it) so for those who haven't read The Charmed yet, I'll be careful not to give too much away.

Olivia has been through more than her share of horror. Bein

We pick up where The Charmed left off. Olivia's just arrived at the hunters base where she will not only be safe from vampires but will learn how to protect herself. Her hope is to learn to not only use her power as defense but also learn to fight vampires hand to hand so that she can go back to Caleb. That is, if he still remembers her after their time apart.

I really enjoyed this story. I can't wait until the next book comes out although I will be sad to see the story end. I've fallen in love

I was so excited when I got this second book in The Charmed series. I really couldn't put it down. I was taken into the story watching it as I read. It kept me wanting more. The love and protectiveness between Olivia and Caleb is priceless. Loved all the twists and turns this series has to offer. I recommend this series to all that love a good paranormal romance with a twist.
