At first I was a bit suspicious, because well... it's not like Nash noticed Kaylee before, so I didn't really know where the sudden interest comes from. But my suspicion faded pretty quickly, ahem.
But of course, Kaylee is beautiful, but doesn't know it... And I can see where this thing with Tod is going... ( ...more
I couldn't put this book down, it was just the fix I needed to feed my YA addiction. I love how unique Kaylee's story is, it really pops in comparison to the hoard of para ya out there. Most importantly the world building was freaking brilliant, the characters were engaging and believable, and the romantic aspects were age appropriate.
And then there was Todd *sighs*, me likey Todd ; ).
I absolute LOATHED this book. So many of my friends rated this book quite highly, which compelled me into wanting to like this, too.
Yeah, well, that didn't work out.
I stuck out until the end, in hope I would find SOME redeeming qualities. There were none.
The characters are one-dimensional. They have names, alright, but that's about it. They have a ...more
This was an interesting start to a new series. The whole premise of soul screamers is very original and unique amongst the throng of ya paranormal novels. The beginning was slow, but with the amount of back story that Rachel had to do, it was almost inevit ...more
I liked this book. I really liked it.
I’m not sure if that’s because I hated Stray so much (which I ATTEMPTED to read directly before this one—don’t do it, trust me) or if it’s because this book is really that good. Based on the glowing notes I took, I’m leaning towards the latter.
I recommend this book to readers who:
1. Are sick of hating main characters
2. Are sick of main chara ...more
I loved this book, I thought it was amazing. I always enjoy original storylines and I thought the storyline of this book is definitely original and not something I have read before. I loved that we got to see the characters grow a lot in this book.
It's been way too long since as series of books kept me u ...more
My Soul to Take is about a girl named Kaylee, who gets very unusual panic attacks. Sometimes she can see a shadow that wraps around any random person that makes Kaylee want to have a gut wrenching scream, see, she knows when this happens that the person is about to die.
Not understanding what is going on and believing she isn't crazy no matter what people think, Kaylee gets some help from someone she never would have dreamed, the gorgeous Nash. With his help Kaylee will finally underst ...more
Kaylee Cavanaugh is a junior in high school who has felt the urge to scream uncontrollably on a few occasions, which she believes are panic attacks. Living with her seemingly oblivious aunt and uncle and her popular cousin, she fee ...more
This book wasn't very original when it came to paranormal YA. Most of the book was spent with the heroine asking questions. The heroine also asked the wrong questions, or unimportant questions first. The heroine needed to get her priorities straight. I could go on for pages and point out where the book failed me, but the points below are instances in the first half of the book that annoyed me:
• The hero is the hot/popular guy at school who is also coincidentally a man-whore.
I really liked this book. It was fast paced and a refreshing read. It was a unique concept that sucked me in quickly.
The chemistry was their between Kaylee and Nash and they were both great characters, but the stand out c ...more
As a lover of mythology, I was somewhat familiar with Banshees’ but the lore in this book was entirely new and surprisingly entertaining. Kaylee is 16 and a bit of a wreck. Her mother died when she was three and her father has flittered in and out ...more
This review may turn into a bit of a rant so I will try and keep it short and hmmm not so sweet!
After reading lots of complicated and long books lately, I was looking forward to an easy read, BUT with a good storyline and a frustrating love triangle. This is what I expected this book was going to give me. Hmmm.. No, no it didn't! Boy was I wrong.
The heroine was such a dramatic FOOL, some things she said and the things she thought was happening to her.. I had to STOP and shake my he ...more
I wanna make sweet looove with Tod. *sings like Chef*
I love that he is a smartass,angry and rude all the time.
To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much with this one. Just your standard run of a mill YA paranormal (I mean, even the cover is a cliche). However, Vincent surprised me.
While this book wasn’t without it’s faults, it was oddly refreshing. Romance aside.
Yeah, I really didn’t dig the romance, but it didn’t bother me in the way where I couldn’t stand the love interest. He’s tolerable. A bit bland, but tolerable. What bothered me was that their relationship (if anythi ...more
So Nash gets major bonus points for not calling Kaylee out on her craziness from the get go, like most guys would. And what the heck is going on with her anyway?
I love the bean sidhe part of this story. It's such a new element to supernatural YA. I'd never heard of any series about bean sidhes before this one, and I'm glad I picked it up.
I wish I could say that my opinion of Sophie has changed, because usually the shallow, annoying sister/cousin/whatever grows up and develops a litt ...more
This book has been a favorite of mine since I was a teen. I love it to pieces, therefore be warned: I may be slightly biased in my review.
Things that make this novel different:
1. The book features Bean Sidhe (Banshee) from Irish folklore.
2. Parents in this book are actually very significant to the story.
3. The MC voluntarily involves her uncle into the issue instead of trying to handle it all by herself.
4. The MC actually has a spine and doe ...more
When I read the prequel My Soul To Lose I was so excited to read this series that I actually did a little squeal when I started to read this. But, let me tell you, this book is really good, but you can’t compare to the prequel, not at all.
As always I try to do my review without any spoilers, but some little secrets always escape trough the cracks. All I can say is that this will certainly not spoils the end; cose is really a great end. Really, really great. The whole book ...more
My Soul to Take was a clever book. Much like my newfound f ...more
Everything was very original and I really liked the fantasy and romance element. This series takes on a very unique concept that you don’t find quite often in the YA genre; developed from mythology and folklore. The writing was superb, it was very engrossing.
The characters were well developed. I liked Kaylee, she’s an awesome protagonist and so was Nash. K ...more
Oh look, Craig's a banshee too.
Wow. I gotta say, this book was really refreshing. The insta-love didn't even bother me, because Nash was the one who told Kaylee everything about her situation (for lack of a better word) and it wasn't very loveydovey. There's also obviously a looming love triangle but we'll get to that when we get to that. No worries. Tod's pretty cool. Even though he's, you know, dead. I can just imagine them lying in bed together when suddenly his pager of death goes off. "Sor ...more
1. Slutet. Wtf? Förlåt mig, men vad hände precis? Visst hade jag misstänkt att det var något som inte stämde, men att den personen låg bakom allt? Och framför allt: vad i helskotta var det för knäppt motiv hen hade? Öhh kändes väldigt, väldigt konstigt bara.
2. Jag älskade den lilla minitvisten på slutet som involverade Nash och den andra personen, jag hade verkligen inte förväntat mig det.
3. Boken utspelade sig på typ en vecka, och hela Kaylees liv vänds uppochned. Ja ...more
Oh. Mein. Gott.
Ja, das war nicht mein eloquentester Moment gerade, aber Rachel Vincent hat es wieder geschafft. Ich werde heute noch die gesamte Serie lesen, ich schwör! ;)
Nach ihrer Shifters-Reihe, die mir wirklich das Herz gebrochen hat, konnte ich nicht sofort mit My Soul to Lose anfangen. Ambivalenz pur. (Was, wenn die nächste Reihe nicht genauso gut ist? Was wenn doch? Blabla.)
Glücklicherweise habe ich heute Vormittag mit Lesen begonnen, denn diese Serie hat Potential! Kaylee ...more

My dad nodded. “He was an arrogant little demon.”
“So what happened?” I asked.
“I punched him.”
For a moment, we stared at him in silence. “You punched the reaper?” I asked, and my hand fell from the strainer onto the edge of the sink.
“Yeah.” He chuckled at the memory, and his grin brought out one of my own. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d seen my father smile. “Broke his nose.”
