Abby Wood’s temperament has often been her downfall. Recently she even had to change school as a result. The time-honoured boarding school on the outskirts of London prides itself of making compliant and happy pupils out of even the most untamable young people. Abby’s foster-mother therefore sees it as the last chance for the rebellious orphan. And indeed, the new school year does not start badly at all, because the cute Tristan Tremblay, the son of the headmistress and her fellow pupil, sweetens her settling into the new class. Perhaps here at Darkhall everything would finally be better. But then her teacher Mr. Cross demands as a therapy measure that she should steal a special ring belonging to the Tremblay family – of course the Tremblays are in the loop. At a party held at the Tremblays’ house, the best opportunity presents itself. When searching for the ring, she creeps through the extensive property, bumping into Tristan’s mysterious brother Bastian. And lo and behold, he is wearing a necklace around his neck with precisely the ring on it described by the teacher. Now Abby knows which of the two brothers to be in cahoots with… What Abby does not know is that Bastian is a spiritual guardian. He has one of three soul rings with which he can banish the dark soul meshes of the pupils at Darkhall. These meshes are caused by bad experiences such as pain and cruelty or if a misdeed is committed in future. It is only if Bastian banishes the dark meshes that the spirit can live on happily, but it also takes away part of their self. What neither Abby nor Bastian know: Abby’s teacher wants to steal all three rings – the soul ring, the heart ring and the memory ring, because together they harbour a gigantic power with which he can reawaken his wife to life, who died in an accident. When Abby hands the ring to Mr. Cross and now finally hopes that everything is over and done with, he disappears. Bastian and Tristan explain everything to Abby and the three of them must do everything to get the ring back, because without the soul ring Bastian has no control over himself anymore and is a danger to himself and others. When searching for Cross, Bastian and Abby get ever closer and fall in love. But when it comes to the showdown and Bastian must decide – Abby or the soul ring – Bastian takes Abby’s meshes without her consent and thus abuses her trust. This is a romantic book series for young people packed with action, with a lot of sizzling between the lines. Entangled in Love is the first volume of the trilogy. If you had the power to release people from their worries, would you do it? Even if it meant taking part of themselves?
