“Unwilling Souls” by Gregory Little

If you or your loved one likes fantasy books by Brandon Sanderson, then you’ll love this fantasy series by Gregory Little.

She must be strong, but she’s not sure if she can do it without help from a friend or family member.

The author, Gregory Little, has created this amazing world full of soul-powered magic technology, cities carved into the bones of immense beasts, and imprisoned gods. While 16-year-old Ses starts off a timid, insecure girl, she learns along her journey that she is stronger, and more talented, than she ever imagined. But, can she trust someone she’s never met to help her, even though she doesn’t seem to be able to trust her own parents? She thought she knew who was good and who was evil, but now she’s not so sure.
