Ryuhei Nakamura and his love Kiyoshi were to spend eternity together but that ended 84 years ago when Kiyoshi was killed. Today, Ryu would give anything to have his Kiyoshi back. When he hears Jesse Shigeta play a song that no one alive should know, he begins to think he might just have gotten his wish.
Jesse knows all about Ryu because he has heard about Ryu his entire life from his ghostfriend. Jesse's ghostfriend is Kiyoshi and Jesse has promised to help reunite him with Ryu. Until Jesse meets Ryu. Even as he feels guilty for betraying his friend, Jesse lets Ryu believe that he is the reincarnation of Kiyoshi. After all, this is the man Jesse loves.
As Jesse gets deeper into his relationship with Ryu, Kiyoshi finds that his anger is making him more solid. Now the question is...will Kiyoshi's anger destroy them all?
Lost Soulswas not exactly what I was expecting. Probably because I was in the mood for something light at the time. As with other books by Barbara Sheridan and Anne Cain, it was darker than I normally like but overall it was very interesting. The romance is not the average run of the mill romance. It is different from your normal happily ever after but in the end it works. I think fans of darker fiction will like everything about it.
