    One thought on “The Box Of Souls”

    1. I won this book on a giveaway. Loved this book and will buy the next book in the series! This author made you feel for the characters. I actually hated the parents. I hope they can redeem themselves in the next book, but I don't know how that is possible. I give the author credit for making me feel hate and pity. Very well writtenohhh and loved the dragons!!

    2. I was given an ARC of this book for an honest review. I thought THE BOX OF SOULS was a wonderful debut novel. The characters were well developed and the rich history we are given into the world of witches Miranda creates, was unique and imaginative.I liked the character of Jasmyn. I thought she had just enough (justified) teenage angst to keep her likable. Though the family dynamic was sometimes painful and had me feeling like her parents were a bunch of jerks! Patricia and Regina were my favori [...]

    3. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.The Box of Souls is a young-adult fantasy about sorcerers, dragons, and a rather dysfunctional family. Despite wanting to shout at a few of the characters, I had a hard time putting this down. It’s very clever, has lots of fun surprises, and is well-suited to a YA audience. There are some lovely passages about magic, immortality, and the bonds between family and friends. This is an imaginative and magical page-turner with very interesting e [...]

    4. This took dragons to an unexpected level for me, not going to lie. But in a good way. I was kind of in love with the rampant destruction, too. Okay, I hated the parents (total jerk wads) but I can't help but respect an author that's willing to write characters it's OBVIOUS the reader will hate, even if I really hated them. I found the ending meshed really well with the rest of the book, too. I wasn't really sure where Miranda was going to go with it, but certainly wasn't disappointed. Editing wa [...]

    5. I haven't read a lot of fantasy but as a middle school librarian, I've been trying to read more. A lot of students at my school gravitate towards the fantasy genre and I think they'd really enjoy The Box of Souls. It's a quick, exciting read with relatable characters. My favorite characters are 8 year old Katarina and the two witches- Regina and Patricia. I definitely recommend The Box of Souls!
