See, Sabine isn't just an ordinary girl. She's a mara, the living personification of a nightma...more

"Whoever said it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved was full of crap."

I cannot believe I finally caved in. After the drama of the third book and what it did to my state of mind I declared it unsafe and potentially harmful to myself to read this book. But I am weak. So so weak. *hangs head*

See, I am absolutely crazy about this series. Just how crazy I am might become obvious after I have given you a glimpse into my twisted little mind. Even while my review and status update...more

This series just keeps getting better and better and My Soul to Steal is definitely my favorite thus far. The book starts with Nash and Kaylee's relationship in limbo as a result of Nash's addiction to "frost". Kaylee can't come to terms yet after everything that has happened. Enter Sabine, Nash's ex-girlfriend who is literally Kaylee's worst nightmare. Sabine's a "mara", someone who feeds off of other people's fears by way of their bad dreams and Kaylee seems to be #1 on her hit list.

I loved h...more
Kaylee and Nash are in limbo after she breaks up with him. Things shake up when Nash’s NIGHTMARE of an ex, Sabine shows up. Except, *and there’s zero catiness as I type this* Sabine really is a NIGHTMARE.

I’ve finally figured out what made me not like the first two: they read/sounded “young,” granted the books are YA, I just couldn’t connect their “youngish” tone. Basically, The premise was solid, but the writing was not on the mark. BUT Come the third book and now the fourth one, the characters...more

I LOVED this latest installment!
I should start off this review by admitting I’m completely addicted to this series. I checked the first one out of the library on a whim and by the end of chapter one I was hooked (I’ve since gone out and purchased my own copy). I swear the pages of the book are laced with frost or some other Netherworld addictive chemical. If that last sentence didn’t make sense it can only be because you haven’t read the books, and you should fix that immediately.

At the end of t...more
WONDERFUL STORY! Bittersweet, heartfelt and very painful! I LOVE IT!

I really like this book compared to the other 3. This one has a lot of emotions that continue to play in and out of my head. It actually bothers me a lot because of how Kaylee keeps on getting hurt. I really really pity her in this book. I mean c'mon! She feels like she's not wanted by the people around her! Feeling unwanted sounds really painful and every time her fears are being described in t...more

This series has sucked me in... I'm sleep deprived but can't seem to get enough.

How to write a review for Book #4 in the series without spoilers? Not really possible!

If you've read this series and made it through book 3 then you'll likely love this addition to the series. For some reason I'm just pulled into these books. They are NOT clean reads. The first book wasn't too bad but the heat just keeps increasing with each book. In this one Sabine oozes sex, she's sex personified and there is not...more

If you have not read book 1- 3, there are possible spoilers-

You have been warned

This book was good. How good? If you took all the paranormal elements out of this book, it would still be a great book!

Without any paranormal elements-
• Girl breaks up with boy because boyfriend lied to her and abused her body to further his addiction to drugs.
• Girl and boy still love each other but major trust issues.
• Along comes ex-girlfriend who sees an opportunity to grab boy back and cause major problems.
• Je...more
Okay, so basically if you're familiar with the series, you know the main characters are Kaylee, Nash, Emma and Tod, and to a lesser extent Kaylee's dad, Nash's mom, Kaylee's cousin Sophie, etc. After Nash's actions in the previous book, Kaylee is -- understandably -- hesitant to trust him for much of My Soul to Steal and her inner turmoil is exploited even more when his ex-girlfriend Sabine comes to town and makes it clear that she'll do anything to get Nash back.

A lot of My Soul to Steal is spe...more
The Flooze
I have to hand it to Rachel Vincent - she's got teen angst down pat, and My Soul to Steal is brimming with it. Kaylee is finding drama at every turn, and that's not taking into account interference from the Netherworld.

As the blurb says, Kaylee and Nash are already struggling to determine their future when in swoops Nash's ex.

Sabine, first introduced in the novella Reaper (not required reading), is troubled to say the least. She's a tough-talking, creepy girl. From her long black hair to her f...more
Emma Michaels
My favorite book as an overall read in this series is still a tie between My Soul to Save and My Soul to Take but to be honest when it comes to specifically character growth, this book is it. Without getting too spoilery I will just say that I am really proud of Kaylee and to be honest there were a lot of points in this book where her character was put to the test and in my opinion she pulled through. She made hard choices while still staying true to what she knew she wanted and what she felt wa...more

I remember saying that Rachel Vincent was brave for the places she took her characters in the last Soul Screamers book, but that was nothing compared to what she’s done to them in MY SOUL TO STEAL.

Sabine. Obviously we’re not supposed to like Nash’s ex-girlfriend who shows up and starts trying to pick things back up where they left off, but Rachel Vincent might have taken it a bit too far. I wanted to reach into the book and physically beat her! She’s a...more
Hannah (Jaedia)
My Soul to Steal is bloody awesome. No, really. It took me a while to get back to reading this series but when I finally picked up My Soul to Steal I could not put it down.

Rachel Vincent introduces a new character into the fray in My Soul to Steal, Sabine. A living nightmare. Literally. And Nash’s ex-girlfriend. Just what Kaylee needs when she’s trying to overcome her and Nash’s problems from My Soul to Keep, right? Wrong. Sabine is one of those characters that you love to hate. She’s so… UGH! F...more
At the start of this book, Kaylee is still "licking her wounds" from the events of the last book. She still loves Nash but for now needs some space to get herself together. She figures she has plenty of time, but then Nash's ex, Sabine shows up. Sabine makes it obvious she wants Nash back and will stop at nothing to get him. She is a mara, literally Kaylee's worst nightmare, so she has an entire arsenal up her sleeve. Kaylee will have to decide whether to step aside or fight for what she wants,...more
At the end of My Soul to Keep, the relationship between Kaylee and Nash was in limbo. My Soul to Steal opens with Nash recovering but guilt-ridden, Kaylee not quite ready to forgive him, and Nash’s ex-girlfriend Sabine arriving on the scene. Nash and Sabine had an intense relationship two years ago but parted without closure after Tod’s death. Now, Sabine is determined to take advantage of the rift between Nash and Kaylee, and take Nash back for herself.

Oh, and Sabine is a mara, or Nightmare, wh...more
Savannah (Books With Bite)

I have never been so pissed off while reading a book. Sometimes I get mad and then get over it. But after reading this book I was mad for days!!

Kaylee is struggling with trust. Trust that has been broken takes time to be repaired, but not in Nash's case. Instead his ex-girlfriend comes in to town making it all to easy for him to fall into another arms. Kaylee is pressured with all kinds of circumstances and is now fighting for a guy.

Let me just say I love Kaylee. She has always been such a great...more
I found this book to be frustrating, that is not to say that it was bad by any means, it was great and tied as the best book in the series, but just some of the characters frustrated me.

First off? Nash. In my review of the previous book in this series I stated that I did enjoy seeing Nash knocked down a few notches, it made him seem more human(ish) and not the stereotypical popular pretty boy jock that he seemed to be in the first two books- but in this book? He was as sad as a puppy that got ki...more
Ok, I gave it 4 stars and that's how I feel but this is a mixed review.

First, the good stuff. Rachel Vincent does a great job of twisting and turning the plot. She is an incredibly talented writer. I am good at guessing the ending and she had me fooled. All her great characters were back, main and supporting. I love Em and Tod. They are complex characters that add a lot to the story. Of course there was Kaylee and Nash but we learned more about Alec from the last book. His character was interes...more
Donna {Book Passion for Life}
Rachel Vincent does it again and knocks another book awesome book out. My Soul to Steal is just as good as everyone says. Filled with raw emotions, a demon out to kill and a love triangle that will leave your heart torn and it’s definitely not one to miss.

This time around we see Kaylee and Nash going through their break up. Even though they’ve broken up, Kaylee is still unsure whether to get back with Nash because she doesn’t know if she can forgive and forget. When Nash’s ex-girlfriend; Sabine...more
Bookaholic (reads every mortal thing)
3.5 - I am going to keep this review very short and vague.

I am not a fan of female love triangles. Too much drama. But I still tried this and I am glad.

Dont get me wrong, there is a lot of 'He is MY soulmate' between Sabine and Kaylee. But unlike other books, Sabine actually has a reason for wanting back Nash. I think Kaylee should just give him up, for Sabine's and Nash's sake and Tod had made a very good speech on why she should.

But The biggest surprise in this book was Nash. In the earlier...more

This book felt like pure filler, like it wasn't a novel in and off itself but something meant to bridge between this and the next book. I was bored by a lot of the inaction, which isn't something I've experienced in the series before. I've felt a lot of things about Rachel Vincent's writing and I didn't particularly like the main character in her adult series, but I've never felt quite so blah and bored before.

A new character, Sabine, was introduced with little to no finesse. It felt like Vincen...more
*Sigh...This book was frustrating,to say the least. I felt like a parent trying to keep a sweet, but stubborn kid named Kaylee from making the biggest mistake of her life. What is this mistake, you ask? Well, getting back together with Nash,of course.

For those of you who've read my review of book 3, you already know I think Nash is pond scum, um ... sorry lower that pond scum and he's still steadily fulfilling that position, while Todd has been promoted once again by moi. I'm not sure what posi...more

::sigh:: be prepared for the ramblings of an irritated fan and possible spoilers!

First let me say, I really enjoyed this book and I happen to really enjoy this series. But, I also dislike it sometimes. The characters can become downright annoying, but Kaylee has reached an all time threshold of bitchiness in this book. Yes, Nash hurt her and he also lied to her. I get it. But to keep dragging it on and mentioning it over and over again was really starting to piss me off. In addition to that, she...more
Review brought to you by guest reviewer Jennifer Jensen

My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent picks up where My Soul to Take left off with Kaylee and Nash’s relationship uncertain as Nash recovers slowly from his addiction to frost. Kaylee misses Nash terribly, but hasn’t been able to forgive him for using his Influence on her while he was under the spell of frost. Their fragile relationship becomes even more strained when Sabine, Nash’s ex-girlfriend, shows up and begins attending their high school...more
My Soul to Steal was another great addition to Soul Screamers. The series definitely has it's ups and downs for me. Somethings bug me - all the teenage angst mainly, but overall it's a good YA series about something we don't get elsewhere, bean shide.

I struggled throughout this one. At times I wanted to sit Kaylee down and have a "chat" with her. "Either love 'im or leave 'im. You're killin' the poor guy." While other times I wanted to support her. "Take your time, honey." She's not really give...more

“Then strong, warm arms wrapped around me from behind. "I've got you," Tod whispered in my ear.”

I have to say I am completely hooked on this series. Like the previous books in the series My Soul To Steal did not disappoint. These books are getting irresistible with every installment.
With the introduction of a Mara, a creature that reads your darkest fears and creates nightmares for you to have while sleeping so they can feed from your fear, the story knocks the creep-factor up a level. What ma...more
wow. I don't even really know what to say right now. My mind is in a million places at once and I don't even know where to begin. First of all, im pissed. Pissed off in the fact that my life has been a huge hectic piece of crap. I'm in the middle of moving and all I wanted to do was sit in my huge ass comfy chair and read until my eyes burned. But no!! I need to process this for a bit before I really review.. so um yeah, to be continued?

Alright! So im officially moved in and somewhat sett...more
Well, this was certainly the most intense book of the series so far! o.O
I felt so many emotions, particularly anger and pain, that I was on edge almost all the time.

The truth is, I am still on edge, so this review may contain some mild language. I'm sorry!

That being said, let me explain to you the reasons that left me in this state:

1 - Nash is a major jackass! --'
I can't believe that after everything that he did to Kaylee, he has the nerve to ask for another chance! --' And he goes around chas...more
