People made love seem complicated. Intricate. Novels tried to capture its intensity, music tried to rein in its soul.
I read every novel I could. I lived and breathed every song that I could listen to. The sounds filled up my unquiet mind.
Then came him.
He brought with him the beauty of silence that echoed through my soul and showed me love wasn’t complicated. It was simple. Beautiful.
Some say love at first sight didn’t exist. That you couldn’t find your soul mate at sixteen years old. Those were people rooted in reality, chained to the confines of life that dictated how you were meant to think. Killian broke those chains. He broke everything. Shattered it so I could see that reality was overrated. That daydreams could somehow come to life.
My life tumbled into darkness in the time after I met him. So dark I thought I’d never see the light again. But he was always at my side. His life meant he knew how to navigate the dark. Lead me out.
I waded through the darkness with him at my side.
We’d be together forever, I was certain of that.
Until I wasn’t.

The author told us this was part one of two, she said Kill & Lex's story isn't over.
I saw it coming, I knew this would happen but I kept right on reading knowing I was going to yell at the author by the end of the book and now I sit her wondering how soon I can get my hands on book two.
Lexie & Killian, their soulmates. Made specifically for each other. Finding each other when your 16 years old may seem impossible but it's truly magical.
Both have experienced loss and pain, Killian more so. But Lexie is just what he needs to keep his demons at bay.
And Killian is the other part of her soul, her person, the one thing she never wants to live without.
After two years together things begin to change. Killian gets his dream, well second to finding the love of his life, and Lexie gets hers. But when one person is rooted in place and the other has been given the chance to fly where does that leave them?
Someone makes the ultimate sacrifice and it's absolutely heart breaking.
As I said, I knew this was coming, but I still wasn't prepared for the story to end where it did.
Echoes of Silence is my first Anne Malcom book, I see now what I've been missing and have added her previous Sons of Templar books to my TBR.
Anne Malcom has been an avid reader since before she can remember, her mother responsible for her book addiction. It started with magical journeys into the world of Hogwarts and Middle Earth; then as she grew up her reading tastes grew with her. Her obsession with books and romance novels in particular gave Anne the opportunity to find another passion, writing. Finding writing about alpha males and happily ever afters more fun than reading about them, Anne is not about to stop any time soon.
Raised in small town New Zealand, Anne had a truly special childhood, growing up in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. She has backpacked across Europe, ridden camels in the Sahara, eaten her way through Italy, and had all sorts of crazy adventures. For now, she's back at home in New Zealand and quite happy. But who knows when the travel bug will bite her again?
