My Soul to Take (Soul Screamers 1)

Rachel Vincent - My Soul to TakeMy rating: 3/5
Date Published: January 2009
Date Read: June 2012

Synopsis:
She doesn’t see dead people. 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.

My thoughts:
I read this book last year and I know I really liked it so I don’t know why at the time I only gave it 3*s.

I was a big fan of the Twilight series and was recommended this book by Goodreads. I thought I would give it a go. After reading My Soul to Lose I quickly started this one. I remember being hooked and needing to read more and more. As I was a bit behind it meant that I could devour the series quite quickly (which I did). Rachel had me completely and utterly at her mercy for the entire of the month. As soon as I finished one I started the next. I just couldn’t get enough of this series. 

So if you don’t know Kaylee is a bean sidhe (pronounced banshee). Except she doesn’t know, and she doesn’t know how to control her ability. That is until the High School hottie takes an interest in her and seems to know more about it than she did. It was great to watch their relationship develop throughout this book. 

Kaylee is a pretty average high school girl. She’s not in the popular crowd but she’s not in the geeky unpopular crowd she surfs somewhere inbetween. She’s a pretty likeable character and you feel pretty sorry for her when she can’t control all this screaming. 

I love Nash. I always imagine him to look a bit like Nate from Gossip Girl  aka Chase Crawford. He plays sports, he’s the most popular guy in the school, who wouldn’t love him? 

Then you throw in his ‘dead’ brother. Except he’s still around. How does that work you ask? Well Tod is a reaper, you know a Grim Reaper with the black cloak and the scythe. Well they don’t really have black cloaks and scythe’s but you get the idea. I can already tell that Tod is going to be trouble. 

This was a great read and I as soon as I finished this I started My Soul to Save. A fantastic YA fantasy/paranormal book.
