The last thing you hear before you die...MY RATING:
One of the things that first drew me toward this book was the idea of bean sidhes, or banshees as they are more commonly known. I was really curious to see how someone could make an interesting story out of women in long, flowing dresses who scream for the dead. However, much like Kaylee, I learned that the lore we know is wrong.
When Kaylee senses that someone near her is going to die she must scream for the soul. A lot of the time, she can't even control her scream. That is without Nash around. I found it really interesting that in this world Rachel Vincent created, there are also male bean sidhes. I loved Nash with Kaylee. He was such a perfect counterpart. Emma was also a great character. She was kind of a polar opposite to Kaylee, but their friendship is amazing. I mean, we all need a friend, and Emma played that role perfectly. Tod was a great character. He added a lot of humor to the story, and introduced us to another side of the Netherworld. I can't wait to get to know him better in future books.
The other side characters, like Brendan, Val, and Sophie were great, too. But that ending? I didn't see that coming. So overall, the idea for this series was amazing, I loved the characters, and it was very well written! I'm really excited for the next read! I'm definitely HOOKED!
