She doesn’t see dead people, but…
She senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally.
Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who’ll be next…
This is my first Rachel Vincent book, I have them all, at least all that are out so far, but I have yet to pick any up…but I have read so many awesome reviews about this series, and the 3rd book is due out later this year…so I figured why not!
First, I have to tell you this is a book I found difficult to put down, I stayed up till 2:30 AM to finish it, regretful that sleep was knocking or I would have picked up My Soul To Save right then and there…as it stands I have already started My Soul To Save though only a few pages in!
I was really not sure what exactly to expect, though I had seen many reviews, honestly I browsed though them looking mostly for the “final thoughts” and the “star rating” more than anything else. I hate having a good book ruined because I read to much before I started it. With that being said, I am going to make sure this one is spoiler free. I love you guys far to much to ruin this awesome book by telling you what makes it so special.
One thing I will say is that Rachel has a new fan…this book was awesome – I loved the characters, though Kaylee at times felt a bit, hum well naive is not the right word but well it’s the closest I can think of. She is quite a strong girl, though she would have to be after what she’s been though, but for me, occasionally through out the book she took to many things at face value.
I liked Nash, though I kept expecting something to happen with him. Maybe I am just jaded but at times he honestly felt too good to be true and I am hoping to learn more about what’s up in My Soul To Save. Don’t get me wrong- I did very much enjoy him as a character. He’s got it going on. I just felt like there was more- things we have yet to uncover!
The relationship between Nash and Kaylee was one of my favorite parts of the book. I LOVED the way Rachel told the story from Kaylee’s POV so we could see her inner “girlyness” come out when she and Nash are together! (Not to mention her thoughts about all the other stuff going on.) There kisses are perfect, there hand holding and gushing, had me gushing right along with them. I liked that neither of them was all “I love you, I would die for you” that you get in some books – there relationship just seemed well, normal – for lack of a better description!
I also felt like the book was a tad bit predictable at times – though there are defiantly twists I did NOT see coming. All in all I guess it evened out. The plot moved at a nice, fast pace and I never felt like I was unsure what was happening, kudo’s to Rachel for that. This is one story that could have become quite convoluted if she would have let it, but it never did.
Bottom Line: I liked the way Rachel tells a story, she’s got a nice pace with this series, that’s got me wanting to find out more! I am excited that I own all the books she’s written so far, so that I can begin to devour them – after this first taste it’s now a “must-have-more” than a want! And as for my final thoughts as to My Soul To Take – go, pick it up! It’s a great story with lots of action, twists and turns and good characters! I can’t wait to read more. So, now that this is done, I am off to pick up My Soul To Save – again, so stay tuned for that review coming soon!
I give My Soul To Take 4 Bookies out of 5!
