At the end of Divided Souls, Cassie discovered to her horror that Ranjit, (having been possessed by the power of the first who touched the pendant) was the stalker responsible for the deaths of the Few members. She saves Richard but Jake wasn’t so lucky and was inadvertently killed by Ranjit when Jake tried to stop him. Isabelle was beside herself with grief. With Ranjit now on the run and a grim faced Sir Alric rebuking her for failing to stop him, Cassie faces an uncertain future. Lost Souls, the conclusion to the Darke Academy series, sees the Academy move to a new location, the exotic Kenyan desert. Both Cassie and Isabelle are still struggling to cope with Jake’s death and Ranjit’s disappearance. Their only reprieve from their troubles is Richard, ever the entertaining funny guy who tries to cheer them up. Isabelle however no longer sees any reason to remain at the academy and decides to leave until Sir Alric reveals a shocking secret – that Jake is alive! It transpires that Sir Alric fed Jake the Tears and revived him. The trio are forced to keep Jake a secret from his family for fear of reprisals.

Cassie continues to fight Estelle’s influence and starts to uncover some startling revelations regarding the spirits that Ranjit hosts and Estelle. She learns the two despite being in love, were mortal enemies who killed their hosts in alternation. Cassie becomes more determined than ever to separate herself from Estelle and renews her efforts to track down Ranjit. With the re-emergence of the Svenssen’s who are bent on raising the Elder Spirit, Cassie faces the fight of her life and this time the odds have never been so against her.

Lost Spirits was a thrilling conclusion to the series with an epic showdown that unfortunately saw not everyone makes it out alive. There were lots of twists and turns though and overall I was satisfied with the way the series ended. Kudos to the author for coming up with this original idea, I look forward to reading her future releases.
