The Shadow Soul Blog Tour + Giveaway!

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…


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


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

At this tour stop I'll be featuring an unset letter from Jinji to Rhen: 

Dear Rhen, 

I’m leaving. I know this letter is the coward’s way out, I know I should tell you to your face, but I just can’t. It would be too much. Too hard. You would convince me to stay, when I know in my heart that I must go. 

A letter? I know you must be confused. I’m not writing it, you know I don’t know how, never learned. But I won’t tell you who helped me, and though it is against your nature, I beg you not to ask. You hunt for secrets, you live to uncover them, but please do me this one favor. 

In exchange, I’ll tell you my secret. You’ve known about it since day one, sniffed it on my skin, pushed me to the brink to reveal it, and now I will. 

I am a girl. 

The boy Jin—the one you saved, befriended, let inside—that boy is me, a girl named Jinji. 

How? I know that word is spinning circles in your head. Well, here is my other secret. I have magic. Just like you, except different. I can weave illusions, very real illusions, and I apologize for my dishonesty. 

But mostly, I’m sorry that you will never read this. That I will never send this. It will be torn up the moment it is completed. Because I would rather you hate the boy I pretended to be, than know the real me and hate her still. 

I will miss you. But I cannot ignore that path of destiny any longer. My family waits, and I must put them to peace.
