Review: My Soul to Take - Rachel Vincent


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:
Was it as good as her other series? Eh, not really. Sure it was good, I read it fast, but there was not that frenzy to get the next book like with her Shifter books. Still a good light YA paranormal.

Kaylee screams and people dies. Why she does not know. Ok at first I thought it all good, but then it was like come on! Why not tell the poor child who can shatter eardrums. Stupid! Made no sense. Not gonna say why she screams, a possible spoiler even if easy to figure out.

She meets a boy, Nash, insta love (but I can buy it there cos of...things). 

What to say. People are dying, she thinks something fishy is going on and investigates all while figuring out who she is.

Conclusion:
YA PNR. Light. That's all.

Cover:
Oh look, a girl in a dress in a YA cover.

  1. I actually enjoyed this series a lot - I think maybe because it's very different. I have never read about a girl who has Kaylee's special flavor of different before.

    I hope you'll enjoy the other books in the series, if you decide to read them!

    1. True, I have never met ..her kind before so that was cool.

      And I did like it, just not as much as her adult series

  4. I actually like this series a lot. Maybe first book wasn't great but I think they have gotten better, last two books were really good. Now I'm eagerly waiting for the release of With All My Soul, last book in the series.

  9. I haven't read this series yet but I did like her shifter series. Sometimes an easy YA read is just what you need!

  12. Sounds like it could be good but I don't really think it's my thing.

  13. Just as you said. Not as good as her adult series. I couldn't go past the first book - too light for me :)

  14. I love Ms. Vincent's other series, this one's been on my "when I have time" shelf...I think I'll keep it there for now :)

    1. For avid YA readers I am sure it's good, but YA needs to be more for me

  15. Hmm a paranormal creature that shouts when death is near, does it start with a B? Yes, I have watched and watched again all the episodes of Charmed and so I learned a lot about paranormal creatures.

  17. The covers on the majority of these YA books do tend to be the same don't they. I like the color on it though - I'm attracted to color a lot on books. Weird, I know.

    1. The color sticks out, I admit that. But the rest YAWN. What's up with the dresses? Most NEVER wear a dress in the books

      Delete
  18. I do want to read some books by this author...now where to start?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm up to book 5 and I've enjoyed the series, light and quick and great on audio. I'm looking forward to her other series
