Review: My Soul To Take by Rachel Vincent, Soul Screamers #1

Thursday, November 10, 2011 0 Comments A+ a-

The Blurb:




   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.

                                                From Goodreads.



My Review:

1st: The cover: I adore it! This is the U.K edition which is way prettier than the U.S one. It completely suits the story and the heroine, Kaylee. There’s one thing I’m not sure I understand, which is the review written on the cover by Kirkus Reviews, what does Twilight have in common with the Soul Screamers series?? If you know, then please share it with me!

2nd: The content: Before you read this books, go and get the free prequel from here or else you will feel like you were left out when you start this one :).

What I loved most about it is that it’s not that romantic although we do have some romantic atmosphere in the story, which only added to the beauty of the story. If I was asked to categorize it I’d definitely put it in the horror shelf, my favorite :D.

The story is just unique and twisted. You could not guess how it’ll develop or end up, you’ll be interested to know what’s going on while you’re reading you wont be able to put the book down, at all!

Just for your information, the story isn’t so scary and it’s a bit funny, you’ll find yourself laughing from chapter to chapter. The story was well written and I liked that there weren’t too many chapters and that each one wasn’t so long :).

The end is in one word awesome.

3rd: The characters: I’ll definitely say that my favorite characters are Tod, Nash and Kaylee in this exact order. I love them! Once Tod shows up in the story, you’ll start reading funny moments ^_^


The book is just good. You’ll really enjoy it if you’re into horror/funny/romantic YA novels. If it was up to me, I wouldn’t compare it to Twilight but to The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting which I didn’t like much, not until I got to the second book. This one is way much better :).

I hope you enjoy it!
