Review: My Soul to Save

Title: My Soul to Save
Author: Rachel Vincent
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Page Number: 279
Series: Soul Screamers Series - Book 2

“If she were going to die, I’d already be screaming. I’m a banshee.  That’s what we do.”

The last thing Kaylee needs right now is to be skipping school, breaking her dad’s ironclad curfew and putting her boyfriend’s loyalty to the test.  But starry-eyed teens are trading their souls for a flickering lifetime of fame and fortune in exchange for eternity in the Netherworld—a consequence they can’t possibly understand.  Kaylee can’t let that happen, even if trying to save their souls means putting her own at risk...


The last thing you hear before you die...



To think I never imagined I'd like this book as much as the first one. Boy was I wrong. My Soul to Save is just as good, if not better than My Soul to Take. Kaylee's learning how to better use her bean sidhe (banshee) abilities, and just in time because this time around, girls are trading their souls for a lifetime of fame and fortune. That doesn't sound too bad, right? The catch? When they die they'll spend eternity in the Netherworld.

In this second installment to the Soul Screamers series, we get to further explore the Netherworld with our favorite characters from the previous novel, and we also meet a few new ones. Kaylee is becoming a stronger character as the series goes on, and I love it. In a quote from one of the characters, Kaylee was described as having "uncommon strength and fortitude." I, for one, completely agree. She puts her life on the line to save someone she'd just met. I'm honestly not sure I would go to the lengths she did. This trait makes her an even stronger character.

Nash is, of course, back in this one. I love the chemistry he has with Kaylee. We got to know Tod more in My Soul to Save. While I wasn't really happy with his actions, he's still cute and funny, and let's face it, I love him. He's also getting closer to Kaylee, which makes me wonder what's going to happen in the next books. Emma is awesome. I missed her in this book, though. I don't think she was in it as much as the first book. Addy wasn't my favorite character. She did, however, redeem herself in the end, so I guess she's ok. The resident bad guy of this book has a lot of potential. I think we can expect a lot more antics from him.

Amazing book, amazing characters, amazing, amazing, amazing! Ahh, enough gushing...
