When Kaylee Cavanaugh screams, someone dies
So when teen pop sensation Enden croaks onstage and Kayless doesn;t wail, she knows something is dead wrong. Kaylee can't cry for someone who doesn’t have a soul.
Soon Kaylee finds that Eden’s not the only starry-eyed girl who traded her life for a flickering moment of fame – a deal that has dark consequences no mortal could understand.
Banshee Kaylee swears to help those lost souls. But school football star Nash – Kaylee’s newly acquired, not to mention super-hot, boyfriend – refuses to let her in harm’s way. Still Kaylee knows it’s her duty to save the innocent from the Netherworld – even if it means putting her own soul – and love life – at risk...
I was very excited to start My Soul to Save after loving My Soul to Take, and though I enjoyed it, it didn;t quite live up to my expectations.
My reading of this book followed the awesomeness of City of Fallen Angels and because of that I struggled to get myself involved in the story for quite a while. But I kept going back, and I am glad that I did as I really enjoyed My Soul to Save once I got stuck in.
Rachel Vincent has a seductive and almost hypnotic prose style in this series that I love. This pulls Kaylee, Nash, Emma and Tod off of the page and straight into your heart. Kaylee is brave and determined to use her bean sidhe heritage to help as many people as she can; often to her detriment; Nash is strong and absolutely gorgeous; Tod fascinates me and I’d love to know more about him and Emma is the kind of friend that I’d love to have.
For some reason, I find places such as the Netherworld completely beguiling. The wonder of a beautifully dangerous world just out of my reach makes my mind run away with possibilities. The dark and eerie Netherworld is one that I know I wouldn’t survive in for five minutes, but I really want to go there. The warped version of reality that Rachel Vincent has created is completely captivating and I really hope Kaylee goes back frequently throughout the series.
After the heart-stopping final sequence of My Soul to Save, I’m very eager to get my hands on the next instalment of the Soul Screamers series, My Soul to Keep.
A huge thank you to Mira Ink/Midas PR for providing me with a review copy.
