Summary from Goodreads:
GAME OF THRONES meets GRACELING in a new young adult fantasy by bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis. Told in alternating male and female perspectives, THE SHADOW SOUL has been hailed as "an amazing start to a new series that is going to have people of all ages wanting so much more." (Happy Tails & Tales Reviews)

When Jinji's home is destroyed, she is left with nowhere to run and no one to run to—until she meets Rhen, a prince chasing rumors that foreign enemies have landed on his shores. Masquerading as a boy, Jinji joins Rhen with vengeance in her heart. But traveling together doesn't mean trusting one another, and both are keeping a deep secret—magic. Jinji can weave the elements to create master illusions and Rhen can pull burning flames into his flesh.

But while they struggle to hide the truth, a shadow lurks in the night. An ancient evil has reawakened, and unbeknownst to them, these two unlikely companions hold the key to its defeat. Because their meeting was not coincidence—it was fate. And their story has played out before, in a long forgotten time, an age of myth that is about to be reborn…

                                            Praise for THE SHADOW SOUL

The writing is flawless. The story and plot line, and plot twists, had me captivated and enamored for the first words. I couldn’t put this book down for anything, and I absolutely cannot wait for book two. The world building is amazing. I feel like I can feel the spirits when Jin speaks of them. And I can feel the fire on my skin like Rhen. And the secondary characters are just as great as the main characters…It’s an amazing start to a new series that is going to have people of all ages wanting so much more. - Happy Tails and Tales

I loved the characters. Jinji is an amazing girl of such strength. Reading about her sometimes brought tears to my eyes because I couldn’t help but love her from the beginning. And Rhen, even though I was suspecting him of treachery he didn’t fail to be surprising at every turn… I can’t wait to find out what happens next!" – Creating Serenity

                                              Praise for KAITLYN DAVIS

Kaitlyn Davis writes some of the best action scenes I have come across in a young adult book; they are fast paced and so well delivered. – Reflections of a Bookworm

I really enjoyed Ms Davis's writing, I was riveted throughout and was eager to see what would happen - there was drama, danger, action and romance that was wonderfully detailed and described. – Obsession with Books

Rhen’s Unsent Letter

Dear Tarin,

Before you say or do anything—yes I have heard the news and yes I am coming home. Congratulations on your baby boy. At least father has one son he can truly be proud of.

On that note, please do not show him this letter. My poor calligraphy is the last thing he needs to see when I’m sure there has been a growing list of the ways of which I’m a disappointment while I’ve been gone these past several months. 

Rest assured, it will end soon.

I have uncovered news, a plot to take over the throne, and we must act swiftly. I cannot say more in case this letter is intercepted, but please know a threat is coming and the city must be prepared. Keep your eyes on the harbor and place extra guards along the walls. 

There is more to me than you, Whyllem and father ever knew. A side I have kept hidden from everyone, anticipating this day. So please, this once, just trust me even if it is against your better judgment.

Love and honor,

P.S. I’ve picked up a stray on my journey. An oldworlder named Jin who I found lost and alone. He is silent, observant, and much smarter than he lets on. I get the sense that he is hiding something from me, yet at the same time I know he is not a threat. I want to train him as knight upon my return. Mention it to father, will you? Somehow I think he’ll like the idea more if it comes from you.

P.P.S. Give the baby a kiss from his uncle.
