Everyone has a soul
Some are just worth more than others
Farley Hope was seventeen when her mother disappeared. In the last six months not much has changed, except that her eighteenth birthday came and went and still no sign of Moira. Her life is just as complicated as it always was. Since her father died in a car crash before she was even born, she’s officially parentless, and to top it all off she’s still suffering from the hallucinations. Mind-splitting, vivid hallucinations- the kind prone to induce night terrors and leave you whimpering under your covers like a baby.
The last thing on her mind is boys. Farley is on break from St. Judes’ when she meets Daniel. It’s not some casual run in at a party, or even a blind date with friends, though. Daniel is the guy following her in his 1970′s Dodge Charger; the guy standing at her window in the LA lunch hour traffic, trying to persuade her to leave everything behind and follow him. And he's hot as all hell.
The moment Farley lays eyes on Daniel, everything changes. He is cold and withdrawn, but there are cracks in his harsh veneer- cracks that betray the secrets he is trying so hard to hide. Farley is drawn into a world that will shake apart everything she thought she ever knew. There are truths out there that she must learn: that a person’s soul is their only real currency, and there are people who would do anything to take hers; that loving someone can hurt so much more than hating them; but, most importantly, when your future is predestined, there is little you can do to change it.
Farley Hope is prophesied.
Her coming has been awaited for hundreds of years.
She is destined to end the tyranny of the Soul Reavers.
To do so she must die.
Sovereign Hope was a refreshing story in the paranormal genre. With a unique, original and action packed plot and loveable characters, Frankie Rose creates a story that readers will instantly become absorbed in.
The characters in Sovereign Hope were really interesting. I was able to make a connection to them pretty early on, which isn’t always easy. I loved Farley and Daniel. I felt Farley was a relatively strong female lead and I believe that as the series continues she will only become stronger. I think Farley still has a lot to learn about herself and I can’t wait to see her discover it!
Daniel was definitely hot! I couldn’t help but fall in love with him. Now, one of my pet peeves is guys that treat girls like crap to “protect” them. Daniel does fall into the category of “that guy”, HOWEVER, the reason I think it didn’t bother me as much was because we were able to see things from his point of view as well. Usually, we only see things from the girl’s perspective. It was an excellent choice on Rose’s part to allow us a sneak peek into his mind. Seeing Daniel’s internal struggles allows the readers to empathize with his character.
I also enjoyed the secondary characters. I thought Kayden and Daniel had a very interesting relationship and I hope we see more of it in upcoming books. I also really loved Tess and Oliver. I am looking forward to seeing their relationship progress.
The plot in Sovereign was fast paced and full of action. This book was definitely an adventure. Rose did an excellent job of keeping us in suspense without over doing it. However, there were a few parts that I thought were a little slow because there was too much irrelevant information. That was the only thing from holding the story back from being a 5 star book.
Frankie Rose’s Sovereign Hope was an excellent read. If you want to go on a unique adventure this book is for you!
