A Circle of Souls by Preetham Grandhi

A Circle of Souls

I Give This Book 4 Stars!

Description: The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. With the murderer on the loose, the police desperately look for any clues to lead to his identy. Meanwhile, a psychiatrist in a nearby hospital is also in a desperate search to find the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings s devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope. When these two situations converge, they set off an alarming chain of events. In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

I liked this book overall and felt it was a good and fast read. I especially enjoyed the psychological/paranormal aspects of the story.  It’s something that is so rarely done in this genre. It made me really connect with Naya and I liked Dr. Gram. I was happy to see he took her dreams seriously, and even more so with the detective Leia Bines does as well.  There are times the story felt very simple to me, maybe I’ve read to many mysteries. I was hoping for more of a twist in the ending, but I knew who the killer was about half way through the book (I did doubt it for a bit though.)  Still very pleased I read it.   I could see Dr. Gram and Detective Bines being used in a series.

* I would like to thank the author Preetham Grandhi for the chance to review this book!

  1. I really enjoyed this book as well and was delighted that while his book started out a bit gorey – did not remain so and he handled a good book – a brutal murder – with great talent around much of the type you see today (some so gruesome that I cant even read them).

  2. I didn’t read this one, but Steve did. He really enjoyed it.
