Todd and Nick are trying to make their way to safety but, with the military on their tail, they know they need luck on their side.  Unfortunately, things don’t seem to be going the men’s way.  Now they just have to figure out who to trust.  Again.

When this newest story in the Chained Heart series starts, Nick and Todd are still on the run and, as the reader would expect, it’s not long before the action starts.  Like the other stories, the author pulls the reader right back into Nick and Todd’s world from the first page and keeps the reader entranced until the last page.  I must admit that, while I like the action these two seem to constantly find themselves in, I really want to see them find their happily ever after. 

I liked catching up with these two and can’t get over the trouble they seem to find themselves in.  Of course the author takes advantage of this to bring back many past characters.  While some of these characters are obviously bad and the reader will have no problems disliking them, it was Todd’s father that drove me a little crazy.  More than once I wanted to smack him for his attitude towards Nick.  There are many twists and turns during the course of the story, with a few surprises thrown in along the way.  While all this made the story fun to read, one of the things I enjoyed more was the background info the author threw in. 

Although the author had already explained that many of the issues facing the world the men live in is a result of the eruption of the super volcanos, I always wondered if that was all.  In Collared Souls the author goes into deeper detail about what caused the changes and why some things are so different now.  I felt doing this filled in some blank spots in the story’s history, making for a richer read.

Fans of this series are sure to love the new addition.  Readers do need to know that this is a series that must be read in order.
