Shattered Souls (Aeterna Chronicles Book 3) by Kris Ruhler
Stand in the line of fire or embark on a dangerous mission? Khara’s choice is to escape. But where can she go when her worst enemy lurks within? Khara, a teen soldier in the Mythren army, yearns for freedom. Faced with a moral dilemma, she takes a stand, defies the army’s rules, and stands in the line of fire. Literally. So when a high-value scientist is taken hostage, Khara seizes the opportunity, joins the rescue team, and leaves the army’s Compound. Little does she know about the dangers that lurk in the forests and mountains: beasts, bandits, and a strange stalker who’s sabotaging their mission. To top it all off, Khara’s biggest enemy is…herself. During bouts of memory loss, another being surfaces from within her—a fierce, ruthless warrior. One who won’t hesitate to hurt the people Khara cares about. Belor, the kidnapped scientist, is the only one with the cure. The race is on to find him before Khara loses complete control and the warrior unleashes chaos. Will they get to Belor in time? A story about integrity, identity, loyalty and a flawed heroine, Shattered Souls is the third installment of the Aeterna Chronicles coming-of-age science fantasy series.
