Summary from Goodreads:
Jinji has been haunted by the death of her twin brother for ten years. Now, on the dawn of her joining, the nightmare that claimed him has returned for her.

Prince Whylrhen is determined to prevent the past from repeating itself. His kingdom is expecting a new heir, and he will stop at nothing to keep the child safe.

Though they've never met, the two share a deep secret—magic. Jinji can weave the elements to create master illusions and Whylrhen can pull burning flames into his flesh. But neither of them knows what they are truly capable of until a chance encounter brings them together. For 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!"

Kaitlyn's Dream Cast for The Shadow Soul

Not all of these characters live, and some of them have died before the novel even begins! Up to you to guess who makes it!

Jinji – Shay Mitchell

Jinji is my female protagonist! In the first chapter of The Shadow Soul, she suffers a great loss and her actions for the rest of the book are motivated by a sense of vengeance and need for companionship. Jinji is in the process of rediscovering who she is, while at the same time trying to honor her past.

Shay Mitchell is best known for her role in Pretty Little Liars.

Rhen – Prince Harry

Rhen is my male protagonist! On the outside, he is a jokester and a womanizer—the third son of a king who has wealth and no responsibility. But on the inside he is hurting. All he wants is to feel worthy of his family and to mold a place for himself in the world.  

Prince Harry, is well, Prince Harry! Not an actor, but he is the embodiment of my ginger Prince Rhen.

Janu/Jin – Gus Carr

Janu is Jinji’s twin brother who has passed away a decade before the novel begins. However, upon meeting Rhen and leaving her home, Jinji disguises herself as her brother and changes her name to Jin.

Gus Carr is best known for his role in Bring It On: All or Nothing.

Calen – Logan Lerman

Calen is Rhen’s best friend since childhood. He is a bit of a rule follower, but that just makes it more fun for Rhen to tease him.

Logan Lerman is best known for his role in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Captain Pygott – Donald Sutherland

Captain Pygott is an old sailor and one of Rhen’s closest friends, almost like an uncle. He spins the most alluring tales and is always willing to help Rhen with a scheme.

Donald Sutherland is in a ton of movies! You all may know him best as President Snow in The Hunger Games—but mine would be a much kinder role!

Mikzahooq – Adam Rodriguez

Mikzahooq is a captured slave from the Kingdom of Ourthuro—but I don’t want to give anything else away!

Adam Rodriguez is best known for his role in CSI: Miami.

Leenaka – Nazanin Boniadi

Leenaka is a princess in the neighboring Kingdom of Ourthuri. Again, not giving anything away!

Nazanin Boniadi is best known for her role in How I Met Your Mother.


**About the Author**
Kaitlyn Davis
I've always been a writer. I grew up duct taping my novels together, started writing complete manuscripts in high school and studied creative writing at Johns Hopkins University. Upon graduating, I decided it was finally time to actually give my dream career a chance. So, of course, I started writing a young adult paranormal romance series -- and no, I'm not jumping on the bandwagon. I've been a true paranormal supporter for my entire life! I blame my obsession almost completely on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, my all-time favorite television show. And, before you ask: Yes, I own every season... even the post WB ones! I especially challenge anyone to watch the first three seasons and not fall in love with Angel, securing a lifelong love of vampires! Other culprits of my paranormal obsession are some of my favorite authors: JK Rowling, Raymond Feist, Meg Cabot, Richelle Mead, Lynne Ewing and Tamora Pierce.
