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 He is cold and withdrawn, but there are cracks in his harsh veneer- cracks that betray the secrets he is trying so hard to hide.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.
Sovereign Hope is book #1 in the Hope Series by Frankie Rose and it is a fantastic read. The story line is very interesting with lots of action. It had my attention from the very beginning all the way to the end.
Farley Hope is an eighteen year old girl whose mother has been missing for months. Ever since her mother’s disappearance, she has been doing all she can to find her and to find out what happened. Will Farley find the answers that she is looking for? Will she be able to find her?
Farley realizes that someone is watching her and her house but she doesn’t know who and how long. One day, while she is driving, she notices that she is being followed and tries so hard to get away but isn’t able to. Something happens and she is stuck in traffic and doesn’t know what to do or where to go. A good looking young man, who Farley hasn’t ever seen or met before, comes knocking on her window. He tells her that she is being followed and that she should go with him. Will she go with him? All of a sudden chaos happens and the mystery man is fighting the bad people. He screams for her to run so she does. She finally makes it home safely, thanks to her friend. The next day, Farley is surprised to find the mystery man, from the day before, in her house. He tells her that his name is Daniel and his reason of why he is there. Who is he and what is his story? Will she be able to trust him?
This is where their journey begins. Farley will find out some secrets and learn a lot of things that she didn’t even know about. Will Daniel be able to protect her and keep her safe from the bad people?
As I was reading, I felt like I was on this journey with them. I could feel the emotions that Farley was having about her mother’s disappearance and the situation that she is in.
Frankie Rose has done an awesome job writing this book. I really enjoyed it and I am looking forward to reading the sequel. I definitely recommend my friends to read Sovereign Hope.
I give this awesome book 5 Dandy's!!
About the Author
As a child, I was always accused of being bookish because I wore glasses- big, horrible, ugly ones with too-thick lenses. Those kids, the super smart ones who always know which tender insecurities to poke at in order to provoke life-long complexes, used to accuse me of reading too many books and that my eyes were going to rot out of my head (their words, not mine!)
The truth of the matter was a little more embarrassing: I used to sit too close to the T.V. That was the reason why I had to wear glasses, but kids don’t really care about small, insignificant details like the truth, and so I was labelled a nerd. The label kinda stuck, and after some sage advice from my awesome nana (nana, you rock!) I decided that if I was going to be abused for my supposed literary obsession, I might as well develop one.
I guess that’s how I got into books and reading at an early age. Since then, I’ve been ripping through books like they’re going out of fashion, which, thankfully, they’re not. Good thing, too, because I’m a writer now, and books are my business!
Thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged me on my journey- look for your names in the acknowledgements!
