Kristi Bentz is headstrong and beautiful, but she has been described as stubborn. She and her father butt heads when she decides to leave the nest. A year and a half after Kristi wakes from a coma, she still has horrifying images of a man and a dark night after being threatened by a serial killer. Feeling too old to live at home, she wishes to go to school in Baton Rouge but her detective father believes she isn’t completely healed even though doctors give her a good report. After arriving at All Saints College, Kristi can understand the concern of her father.
Jay McKnight has a double degree in criminology and another in clinical laboratory science then a masters in forensic science. While subbing for a professor at the All Saints College, the next case has him running into Kristi after many years.
Arriving at the college, Kristi hears about four missing girls who have been written off as irresponsible runaways. With the mention of a dark cult on campus, Kristi searches deep into the subject of vampires. The missing girls were taking Dominic Grotto’s vampire class. Kristi sets out to get to the bottom of the missing girls but an old friend believes her life is in jeopardy. Jay works with the New Orleans police department, but while filling in for a professor, he comes in contact with Kristi again. Working with Jay, Kristi fears their ancient history may become more present than they think as the killer zooms in for another kill.
Lost Souls is a top-notch read. The ending sends a chill down the spine. After hearing about her father, this reader could feel the tension and worry in Kristi’s voice. Not only are the characters well-developed, but quite interesting, too. This is spine-tingling excitement, full of passion and desire, with that touch of something dark and evil, making the plot amazing in this powerful thriller. I love the way Lisa Jackson allows Kristi and Jay to come together again with a new budding relationship. She really has created a story that is fabulous by far while sketching unforgettable facial expressions.
