Welcome to York, England.
Mist lingers in the streets.
Narrow buildings cast long shadows.
This is the most haunted city in the world. . . .
Miranda Tennant arrives in York with a terrible, tragic secret. She is eager to lose herself amid the quaint cobblestones, hoping she won’t run into the countless ghosts who supposedly roam the city. . . .
Then she meets Nick, an intense, dark-eyed boy who knows all of York’s hidden places and histories. Miranda wonders if Nick is falling for her, but she is distracted by another boy — one even more handsome and mysterious than Nick. He lives in the house across from Miranda and seems desperate to send her some sort of message. Could this boy be one of York’s haunted souls?


Dark Souls is a gothic story with depth, not only having the various elements you expect from this genre, it also has a back story that fills it with emotion. We meet Miranda, an American girl who, with her family, are having a holiday to York. She wants to escape a part of her there, leaving it in America. But she quickly sees that wherever she goes, this part of her will follow. Miranda can see ghosts. An accident in her past started this off and now she sees the tortured souls, the only thing is, sometimes she can't tell who is or is not real. The ghosts can seem so real that she finds it difficult to tell. On her holiday, she meets a mysterious boy called Nick. Also another boy, a beautiful ghost who she wants to talk to, wants to help but can't. Her presumption of him is wrong and with Nick, she learns more about her ability and how nasty it can get. The detail in the surroundings make this story even more tantalizing, it's romantic and gothic, creepy and mysterious. The characters are strong, each having a significant part to play. This is an addition to the genre that everyone should have a look at.
