What's a girl to do? When last we see them, Gemma and her friends stop legion hordes of Death Walkers, led by her boyfriend's evil father, and the world is saved. She and her friends move into a nice castle, and suddenly, all sorts of hell starts breaking loose.

Such is life for 18 year-old Gemma Lucas. She and her boyfriend, Alex, did indeed help save the world. The couple moved into the former Keepers' Castle, along with Alex's sister, Aislin, and the friendly vampire/Aislin's love interest, La

Wow! I do not know how she did it, but Jessica took the Fallen Star series to a whole new level without it feeling forced or contrived. I adored the Fallen Star series and was beyond giddy when I found out this series was in the works. The story takes place after the dust has settled from ending of the first series. The characters are not much older, but boy have they grown up. Wowzers. This is still a fairly clean YA, but it definitely heated up.

I was really excited when Jessica announced that Gemma and Alex were getting another series as I adored them a couple and I loved the Fallen Star series! I originally read this book when it was first released and I couldn't finish it so I decided to try re-reading it as the next book in the series was coming out! I loved it more the second time around! The plot was what put me off a little from reading this book as I wasn't sure if I was really going to enjoy it but Jessica added twists and turn ...more

The Lost Soul series is a spin-off to the Fallen Star series. It's even better than its predecessor! It's a simple and fast-paced read. This new series continues to follow Gemma Lucas' and Alex's story. Taking place a short amount of time after "The Promise". It's full of mystery, action, and secrets. Just when you think you have an idea of what's going on you're thrown for a loop and have to keep revising your initial thoughts because you won't expect where The Lost Soul will take you. You'll ...more

Whoa. If you guys thought that the Fallen Star Series was good, you're in for one of the best surprises of your life!

I'm now hopelessly addicted to Sorensen's story-telling. She strings you along with suspense, mystery, romance, and action, forcing you to continue reading to uncover what'll happen next.

This novel has risen even more questions in this stewing brain of mine, and just wow. We start to see romantic tension, and Gemma starts to succumb to The Lost Soul that has invaded her.

Okay, it pains me to rate this a 3 but I had to...

I must say, I did love The Fallen Star series so much and I was so excited that you were doing a sequal to the series, but maybe you should've stopped.

First of all, I honestly think there's too much Gemma and Alex romance. Like Alex lies to her, and keeps things from her that are important but in the end they still end up all lovey dovey and stuff. I mean Gemma, use your brain and see what the big picture is.

Also, how many damn times did Gemma a

Oh my God! What a rollercoaster! I love the Fallen Star series and this book just felt like an action packed continuation! I must say I was seriously unhappy to see the end of Gemma's adventures and this book was just a fan's dream come true. I love Laylen and though I wish he and Gemma would hook up or something I know it won't happen (maybe when she's possessed or something... and i cant wait for it to happen). Nicholas just makes me sad sometimes. I know he's a good guy deep down (maybe his s ...more

I absolutely love all the characters in it, and in the fallen star series I really connected with the characters
The bond between Alex and Gemma is amazing&so unique
Laylen Is so funny and a trust worthy character
Aislin Is a worrier!
I can't wait for October for the next book in the series:D
Anyone who hasn't read it, I recommend, it's such a good book and the fallen star series are amazing books, always leave you on the end of your seat wandering what's going to happen next!

The Promise was the ending to the Fallen Star series. I knew there would be a twist to the prophecy of the end of the world. I enjoyed this book and I’m glad that it gets a new twist int he spin-off series “Fallen Souls”. The Lost Soul started out really interesting, then tons of things got complicated, some people got possessed, the queens of the Underworld are trying to take over the world and chaos exists once more.

I loved this book!

I'm in love with the series, I love the main character, and there is a twist that leaves me anxiously awaiting the next in this series. Jessica managed to add another element to these characters and a twist to Gemma that had me squeeing with delight.

If you've read her Lost Star series, you love this one, give it a go.

I loved the fallen star series but have mixed views on the lost soul spin-off. I crave for more of the Gemma/Alex story yet thought this book just didn't have the same pull as the others. That said, I can't wait for the next book to find out how it all ends.

Love these books

Jessica Sorensen is an amazing author for teens to read. She captures emotions and dilemmas most teenagers can relate to. This story line is unique, heart wrenching, beautiful, and mystery because you never know where she’s going to go with it next. I highly recommend these books to anyone who is looking for something new and refreshing to read.

Ok there, that's the number one thing that I said after I closed the book. Let me say it again, Holy crap

Jessica Sorensen has the ability to hypnotize her readers. I just can't bring this down!! And bringing this down was like an agony and pain aching through my soul. I maybe exaggerating a bit, but I, myself, is a living proof that Jessica Sorensen is a phenomenal writer.

THE LOST SOUL (Fallen Souls #1) by Jessica Sorensen

THE LOST SOUL is the first book in Jessica Sorensen’s Fallen Souls series-a spin off from her popular Fallen Star series. Like the Fallen Star series, The Lost Soul features many of the characters from the original series including Gemma Lucas, Alex, Aislin, Laylen and Nicholas. The requisite dark side returns, when the Queen of the Underworld continues to push the boundaries, needing homes for her lost souls. Fey, witches, vampires and demons a

Author Jessica Sorensen once again brings back Gemma Lucas, her friends and even some new found enemies for another action packed book, that gives you a story that has you reaching for the next page before your done reading the one your on. The Lost Soul also shows just how much Jessica's writing and story telling has grown since The Fallen Star was penned. I just couldn't help myself from devouring this book in one night.

What's not to love? Gemma now has 3 queens after her and her power's. Whic

I am reviewing the novel The Lost Soul by Jessica Sorensen which is a very good fantasy novel which I bought from kindle. This is the first book in the Fallen Soul series & I think her ebooks are reasonably priced. I think she did a Lost Soul series too and they are essentially the same story but one is for young adults & the other is for adults. The 2 lead characters are both called keepers & I think basically they have super powers and have to protect mortals from things like faeri ...more

Poor Gemma.
She just can not catch a break.
In the the Fallen Star series, there are FOUR books of non stop problems, running, and hiding.
And now this book with that damn queen of the after life, messes everything up. It's crazy how long of a list her problems are.
I loved it all though. This world of Keepers, Forseers, vampires, witches, everything, is interesting.


Laylen. Is he for real a good guy? Or a trick. I don't see what he could get out of tricking Gemma. But

DONT like it as much as I did the fallen star trilogy, but it was a good spin-off.
In the last series I liked the fact that Nicholas had a chance, you see I have sort of fallen for him and fallen out of love with Alex, so the fact that he weren't in it much as is now stuck somewhere- god knows where doesn't bode we'll with me.
Considering that I was really, really looking forward to this and was overwhelmingly excited at the fact that Gemma's story wasn't over and there was still a chance for her

!!!!!!!!! - This is me jumping up and down as there is a follow up on The fallen star series. I found a bit of a change in the style of writing but it was an action packed book where there is always 2 or more things going on in which everyone is trying to be a hero.

This book opens up new traits in each character. I mean, you have Alex, a guy who will do anything for Gemma but could he be hiding a secret that will ruin everything, or will his love for her be the death of them all. Then you have

Well, it took me forever, but I am finally finished! It should not have taken me nearly as long as it did, but I kept getting distracted by other things. Anyway, I enjoyed this book a good bit. However, I felt like it took a long time for anything to actually happen. Nothing too exciting happens for the first half of the book. Once I hit about 60% on my Kindle, I flew through it until the end. Actually, I read pretty solidly for a bit before that, too. I just got distracted by other thi

The Fallen Soul books are pegged as being a spin-off from the Fallen Star series, but really the first instalment just picks off from the end of book 4 – which is marvelous for us and how most of Sorensen’s fans would want it. The book slinks back into a familiar pace and style, and you just know you’re in for a damn good read.

The four main characters remain unchanged i.e. handsome Alex is firecly protective of Gemma, who is as headstrong as ever, Nicolas is annoying and cryptic as before, Layle

I won this book from first reads, and wow--what a great book to add to my collection! This was my first experience reading the work of Jessica Sorensen, and wow, what a great YA writer. She has a way with words, her style of writing draws you in from the first sentence to the last. One of the greatest things about this: most YA novels include a romantic element that is so cheesy and cliche, yes the relationship between Alex and Gemma is a bit cheesy, but it is refreshing it is a completely new s ...more
