New York Times bestselling author Rachel Vincent's compelling Soul Screamers series keeps getting better—here, for the first time, the original stories are compiled into one special volume .

It looks so good in my bookshelf.
Kaylee Cavanaugh is living a Harry Potter sort of existence: she's essentially an orphan, lives with her aunt, uncle, and spoiled, obnoxious cousin, Sophie.
I kept thinking of Sophie like Quinn on the "Daria" show, except Quinn wasn't quite as bitchtastic.
Kaylee's secret is that she's a bean sidhe, what we bastardize into "banshee."
Anyway, Kaylee was super clueless. I liked her, don't get me wrong, but sometimes she just doesn't know anything, which is to be expected considering her family...more
I read these slightly out of order. My library had the first book, but not the second so I read the first, then ordered the ebook of this together. I know that kind of does not make sense, but in a way it did. It was only a little more and I got all 2.5 books together, and I'm guessing this is a series I will wan...more
I was surprised. Not much, but still surprised nonetheless. I think what I like most in this series is the intensity between Nash and Kaylee. Whenever a scene with them starting to get steamy would pop up, I'd get antsy. Rachel really knows how to leave you wanting more!
The only thing I don't like is the whole idea behind the bean sidhe thing. She screams whe...more
And so I did.
Soul Screamers Vol 1 is a 3-in-1 collection of My Soul to Lose, My Soul to Take and My Soul...more
On that subject, what's the deal with girls in dresses on books anyway? I mean seriously, they are everywhere:Fallen, , Shift, Unearthly, The Girl in the Steel Corset.... You...more
Oh wow I am hooked!! What a great way to get me into the story. Loads of intrigue and so many unanswered questions it would be impossible for me not to jump to the first book in the series!!
Really like able and engaging characters, even though you only get to meet a few. Kaylee is so like-able she draws you in from the start. Really endearing and spirited.
Can't wait to see what it is that is causing her panic attacks.
My Soul to Take ~
This could easily become a favorite series!!...more
omg fricken loved this. i reviewed them each seperetly so here we go:
my soul to lose
For a novella, this was fricken amazing. How weird is it that on page 19, i was on the edge of my seat, flipping like a maniac?
I got a copy of this in the Soul Screamers Volume 1, but i have decided to review each one of the books seperately. But after finishing My soul to lose , i was SO excited to get started with the actual first book in the series, its just so damn good. The conc...more
book 2 was more of the meat a potatoes. explained some things.
book 3 was...more additive.
looked ahead to 4-6. I might just skip the ones about Sophie (don't like her, and don't really want to read a whole book about her), and Tod (although an interesting side character-I don't know if he could pull off a whole book). I saw the ending of book 3 coming, and don't like predictable endings. I read t...more
I have a confession to make: I don’t like teenagers. I never really cared for them when I was one, and now that I’m slowly making my way through my thirties, I like them even less. For this reason, I tend to avoid stories that are strictly teen-centric. Unless, that is, they are grafted onto something “weird.” You’ll never see me watching Th...more
Kaylee Cavanaugh is at mall with her best friend, Emma, looking for a dress for homecoming and plotting ways to revenge her ex-boyfriend when she feels it again: the screaming. And the inevitable death of someone near her that will follow.
Kaylee can't stop screaming, a gut-wrenching, high-pitched scream that literally forces its way up to her mouth.
When she comes to herself after having lost her consciousness in the mall, Kaylee finds herself strapped to a bed... in a men...more
I started with My Soul to Lose, which is a smaller prequel to the actual first book My Soul to Take. It did make sense to read it first. It's a good, quick read which will let you know as a reader if you want to continue on to the (slightly) longer books/series. The word "banshee" or "bean sidhe" didn't even come up in this one. I liked it, but felt the Lydia character was totally unexplained (...more
My book had Three volumes, or maybe Three in one. It started with the 0.5 book, when we found out that kaylee screamed and everyone tried to calm her down and over an over again they were saying that it is just a panic attac. But kaylee knows better. Her aunt Val sends her to the mental hospital (Is it called that way?) and she was there for a few Days until she got home. This book, the very beginning, was really, really good!...more
The supernatural creature in this book: banshees or bean sidhes. I had never read a book about those before this one, and it held a lot of promise.
But I felt like the characters fell flat. Kaylee was one of those heroines that you forget their name and have to look it up before you write a review. And I don't even remember the love interest's name. Alex? Max? Something like that.
And jesus... Have you...more
First of all, there are no Vampires or Werewolves in sight! The closest to it are hellions and reapers and a lot of death. Second, Kaylee is a strong heroine who is willful but altruistic. She has misgivings about her father abandoning her but she cares about her Uncle who took her in. And if she does act a little erratic, being committed to the loony bin and seeing things will do that to anybody. Added to the fact that you can't help but scream at the top of your lungs when anyone is about to d...more
I bought this due to the fact you get the prequel novella, book 1 and book 2 all in one. I must admit, the prequel novella My Soul To Lose really captured my attention. Book 1 My Soul To Take was nearly as good, and boo...more
My Soul to Lose: 4 Stars
I really enjoyed this novella. The whole idea behind Soul Screamers is intriguing and original to me and the premise of the psychiatric ward was very believable and interesting as well.
The only issue I have is the fact that we never get to find out what happens to Lydia or more information about her special abilities, although I believe I have a pretty accurate idea based on the vague hints...more
I really enjoyed the writing in this book. It seemed to flowed very well and gave the book a good feel to it. The descriptions gave you a good sense of what was happening in the story and let you get connected to the characters that some author's just don't seem to achieve.
Also i enjoyed the abilities that the different gender's have. And how to really be successful and use t...more
tl;drI really liked these books. Not an outstanding story, but definitely amusing and entertaining. I really liked it!
Description (from Goodreads)
My Soul to Lose
—The prequel: never before in print!—
Kaylee is just your average girl shopping at the mall with friends—until a terrified scream bursts from her that cannot be stopped. Taken to a hospital ward, will she be able to save her mind—and her life?
My Soul to Take
She's always felt different, but now Kaylee discovers why. The screams that cannot
That being said, I'm glad I finally read this first volume and will keep reading the series. Kaylee is a great character; not too weepy or bitchy. Nash does seem too good to be true and I am waiting for something to test his feelings for Kaylee. Their relationship seemed a little thrown together. I do find it hard to believe the bean...more
i really liked the length of the prequel and hearing Kaylee as a character for the first time. her voice is sarcastic, desperate and confused of who and what she is and i really enjoyed meeting her. great start.
MY SOUL TO TAKE:
OMFG. sooooo good. Nash is amazingly hawt and Kaylee is like his perfect fit. i loved reading this because of the mystery and suspense and also because i was learning about Kaylee's world while she was learning about it. i guessed some stuff but i really en...more
My Soul to Lose: At only 60 pages long, I can't really rate this one. Kaylee is at the mall with her best friend, when an unstoppable screech erupts from her throat. She's taken to a mental health ward, and must find out what happened, and why her aunt and uncle put her there.
My Soul to Take: The first book in the series; 4 stars! Kaylee is at the club with her best friend (sound...more
My Soul to Lose: It was very good, you get to learn a little about Kaylee, which I adore.
My Soul to Take: This was my book, so far. Your introduced to what Kaylees heritage is. which is way different from your average Urban Fantasy books out there. And oh, Nash....gotta love the sweet, over protective boy in her life. And then theres Tod as well.
My Soul to Save: It was ok. It wasnt my favorite but it still h...more
