Book Review: My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent

Title:My Soul to Steal

Author:Rachel Vincent

Series: Soul Screamers #4

Publisher:Harlequin Teen

Where obtained:Library


Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can't just pretend nothing happened. But "complicated" doesn't even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.

See, Sabine isn't just an ordinary girl. She's a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people's fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives.

And Sabine isn't above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.

Another awesome book in an awesome series. I had read the previous books more than half a year ago and the minute I started reading My Soul to Steal, i was hooked back into the story and the characters. Last May when I found out I had to wait until January of 2011 to read the next book I almost broke into tears.

In this installment, Kaylee and Nash try to work things out. But gosh darnit, why must there always be another girl. There are parts in the book that made me tear up. You get sucked into the two protagonists relationship like bees to honey. Some parts I was yelling, no, no, no.
Some parts I was smiling like an idiot. Did I mention Nash and his brother Tod are both swoon worthy hotties? If you never read the series, go to the library and get My Soul to Take, because you definitely won't regret it. When I first heard of the word banshees, I thought of an animal that released an ear splitting cry. Rachel Vincent has done a magnificent job in putting those characteristics into a person.

Kaylee Cavanaugh has slowly grown and gotten stronger as she faced more and more foes. And this time she had to face the strongest challenges yet. And I'm saying this because I'm already dancing around because of the news for there being another book. Yippee! Now back to talking about the book...

Sabine. She really is in control, she knows what she wants, she's pretty and she has a history with Nash. She's willing to play dirty to try to steal Nash away from Kaylee. But I believe that Kaylee will hold on tight. I wish Tod would find someone special though, he's a reaper but he can still become somewhat human. He may somewhat sarcastic and likes to bother his only friends, but he's a really good guy. He'll help when they need it and even though he says mean things, he cares for Kaylee and Nash very much. I felt like I couldn't read fast enough, because it was just so suspenseful. I wanted to know what happened next, and before long the book was over :[.

Kaylee is independent and even though she doesn't seem it, she has some serious fight in her. Yet like most girls, she needs a guy to hold onto. And that guy is Nash. I don't know what she would do without Nash. I think they're perfect for each other, what do you think?

I hope I didn't give anything away, and made you want to go pick up those books. You really should ya know? I give this book a 9.5/10 because it totally deserves it. I adore the series and everything about it. I think the best kind of book, are ones that invokes feelings in the readers. I hope you enjoyed the review and thank you for reading :].
