Book Description

A new guy in town.
Rumors of witchcraft.

Doomed first love.

This is where the saga begins.
. . .

They say every town has
its secrets, but that doesn't even begin to describe Fallen Oaks. The townsfolk
are a superstitious lot and the mystical disappearance of a local teen has
everyone murmuring about a centuries old witch's curse.

When sixteen-year-old
Shiloh Trudell takes a summer job at Craven Manor, she discovers a ghost with
an agenda. That's where she meets the new town hottie, Trent Donovan, and
immediately becomes
enchanted by his
charms. Finally, Shiloh's met
someone who is supercute and totally into her, but Trent is immersed in the cunning
deception that surrounds the mysterious Craven Manor. Yet neither one of them
can deny the immediate, passionate connection growing between them.

With cryptic messages from
a pesky wraith, Shiloh will finally begin
to understand the mysterious significance of the strange mark branded on her
wrist and
decide how much she's willing to sacrifice to protect the
other teenagers in town.
Unfortunately, for Shiloh,
not all ghosts want help crossing over. Some want vengeance.

Editorial Reviews


"This book is intense in the most amazing way. I could not put this down. When I did it was all I could think about. I can honestly say I wasn't sure if I was going to like this. Throughout the first half my feelings were kinda mixed. The second half made me wonder what in the world I was thinking. This book is so amazing. It left me dying for more...I loved it with all my heart. And I can't wait for the sequel, so I can see where this story is going to go. I highly recommend." --Beneath the Moon and Stars Reviews

* Nominated for Best PNR - Wizard and Witch (2011) by The Romance Reviews (TRR)*

From the Author

These serial novels should read as if you are watching a TV series. Each new book is like a whole season broken up into six separate parts (so far). Some end with a cliffhanger and others without complete plot resolution. However, each book continues the ongoing story of Shiloh and her friends as they face new foes together and fight their own inner-demons, finding bittersweet romance and everlasting friendships along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another home run for Sherry Soule! August 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Brought to you by OBS reviewer Dawn

*Beware of Spoilers*

Another home run for Sherry Soule. I first read the version of Beautifully Broken released in 2011. I loved it, to say the least. I contacted Sherry about the series and she explained she had enhanced the book. The new version was released in August. I am relieved it is finally here. I have been jonesing to read Beautifully Broken with more detail. I was not at all disappointed.

Shiloh is a layered character. She is 15 with a scar that people call the devil's mark. Shiloh is snarky, a smart-ass, witty and over-all pretty self-aware. She is solitary because of her gift but also because she is consistently misjudged. She is labeled "weird" at school. Since a near death experience, Shiloh can see as well as speak to shadows, shades, wraiths, auras etc...She is a powerful witch but not in touch with that part of herself just yet. I think it scares her to death. She is young, making it difficult to face these very adult issues.

It sucks that Shiloh has lost touch with some of her mother's relatives including her Aunt Lauren and grandparents. She could really use their support at this time in her life. It is especially important because Shiloh has a bizarre relationship with her mother. She believes she is unlovable because of how her mother treats her. My heart broke for her in this regard. If you are ignored enough, you think it is your fault. It negatively effects her self-image. I wanted to hug her and tell her it would be okay.

I enjoyed Soule bringing Shiloh's Native American ancestry into the story. She gets many talents from both sides of her ancestry.

Shiloh has developed a telepathic shield to protect herself from the beings she sees. They want to feed off her emotions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Felt like I was there August 22, 2013
A wonderfully descriptive tale of mystery and magick rolled into one. I felt like I walked through the story with the characters who each faced their own past and present. A lovely tale of a town built in secrecy and the dependence of one sacred individual with the power of redemption. Well worth the read.

his book is like a decadent desert you just want to savor, like a rich piece of chocolate that you can't put down. What I really liked about the book was that the writing was very strong.

Strong in that I felt the characters were written as smart, intelligent human beings, witches or other creatures that had their own personalities and wills, but were not bratty or spoiled.

The chemistry between all the characters was very believable. I like how Shiloh is a little scared in the beginning, but starts through a series of bizzare and strange events. She feels like her life is out of control. Plus what teenager doesn't feel that way. Shiloh is not aware of the fact that she is a heritage witch. This was a neat way to explain that Shiloh has to embrace who she is.

Love how everything was weaved together in an incredible, but believable way. From the way Shiloh mother treats her and the reasons why were very believable. Plus the back story of Shiloh's aunt, mother, father made sense when faced with a ghost from the past literally.

The love story between Trent and Shiloh was so tender and sweet, not overly sickening as some teenage romances tend to go. Trent and Shiloh have an attraction that is very spot on and good for the story as this helps Shiloh find herself in a way that was perfect. Love the date scenes especially between Trent and Shiloh. I felt like Trent really did only have eyes for her. Trent is a very nice guy, but has a sense of mystery surrounding him.

The last 50 pages of this book was an high-octane rollercoaster. I was gasping at all the surprises and twists this book took. Really enjoyed the book a lot more than I thought I was going to.

This book really was excellent.

I Give It Five Hearts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic, mystery and mayhem! July 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Shiloh wants more than anything to be an ordinary teenage girl, but downright next to impossible to be ordinary when you're a budding and powerful witch in a cursed town. She dreams of becoming an architect, and when the perfect summer job opens for her to assist a high profile architect in the restoration of Ravenhurst--the towns notorious haunted house--Shiloh tentatively jumps at the amazing opportunity. Not only is it the career opportunity of a lifetime, but the house belongs to the new hottie in town, Trent Donavon.

Beautifully Broken has everything a young adult paranormal romance should have: mystery, intrigue, demons, ghosts and a budding romance so hot it'll make your head spin. At times the fiery passion between Shiloh and Trent feels almost paranormal itself, as if some otherworldly power is feeding off the sparks of their fast-paced, out of control love.

Soule captures the confusing essence of being a teen very well, twisting the blade of confusion as Shiloh must learn to embrace her growing magical power and the truth before both consume her.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read with many twists and turns January 20, 2014

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

Being the thirteenth daughter has some serious drawbacks for Shiloh Ravenwolf, especially in the darkness. From the beginning of this story, the descriptions of the creatures that haunt Shiloh were incredibly descriptive and reading this book at night had me jumpy. Shiloh knows that she has the potential to force the dark creatures away, sort of like going to her happy place in her mind, but over time, her ability to do that just isn’t working. Her parents aren’t much help. Her Mom’s self-centered and her dad is caring but not overly involved. She has relatives who might be able to help but they’ve been missing from her life for years. Friends can’t help because they don’t really understand either.

As teenagers start to disappear from the small town, rumors are rampant that it has something to do with the return of a local family who own a home that is supposedly haunted. Shiloh is fascinated with old home architecture and applies to be an intern at the home in question, which also happens to be the home of a hot teenage boy. Things are happening in the home, though, bad things.

As a flirty romance starts between Shiloh and the hot boy, she’s befriended by someone who helps her discover what her true purpose is and how to harness her power as a witch and fight the demons that plague her town. What he can’t help her with is what troubles her the most. Why are her relatives arguing when they do meet? Where are the teenagers disappearing to? Why does the suicidal scar on her arm throb at times?

A good read with many twists and turns for fans of young adult paranormal with a touch of romance.

More About the Author

Sherry Soule lives with her family and one very spoiled black cat in the San Francisco Bay Area. She's always wanted to live in a world where sweatpants are sexy, cupcakes don't make you fat, and she could adopt every homeless animal.

As an author, her books have been nominated as *Top Picks* in the "Best Paranormal Romance" categories by sites such as The Romance Reviews, Night Owl Reviews, and the Paranormal Romance Guild. Her YA novel, "Lost In Starlight" has been quoted as an unforgettable love story for teens.

When she's not writing thrilling tales of romance and suspense, often mingled with a dash of the mystical and a splash of trendy fashion, you can find her watching Netflix, reading on her Kindle (often crushing on fictional characters), or hanging with her zany family.
