So today I have Mary Lindsey on the blog today telling us about Zak and what he reads!
Lenzi hears voices and has visions - gravestones, floods, a boy with steel gray eyes. Her boyfriend, Zak, can't help, and everything keeps getting louder and more intense. Then Lenzi meets Alden, the boy from her dreams, who reveals that she's a reincarnated Speaker - someone who can talk to and help lost souls - and that he has been her Protector for centuries.
Now Lenzi must choose between her life with Zak and the life she is destined to lead with Alden. But time is running out: a malevolent spirit is out to destroy Lenzi, and he will kill her if she doesn't make a decision soon.
His mom and dad weren’t readers, so that might be why it was never a favorite activity.
Since high school, he hasn’t read any novels. In school, he read and loved Hatchet and Wolf Rider, but most of the things he read in class didn’t appeal.
Music is his real love. He can tell you almost everything about rock and roll from the 1960’s to modern time in addition to being able to play classical guitar.
Zak is an auditory learner. Movies and music hit that part of him that books reach for many others. Give him a guitar and he’s set for hours.
Thank you so much for hosting this stop on the Shattered Souls blog tour, Harmony!
