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…

~ My Review ~

After reading all of the Shifters books by Rachel, I found My Soul to Take in a used book store and, knowing how much I loved her writing style and character building, decided to check out her YA series. After reading My Soul To Take I knew it was going to be one of my new favourites. I loved the chemistry and the flow of the story, and it was an easy read.

One of my favourite things about My Soul to Take was the actual idea of the Soul Screamers, because it was a refreshing change in the YA genre for me. I read a lot of paranormal and there are plenty of fairies, vampires and shapeshifters so I'm always happy to find something that's totally new and different.

Kaylee is great, I love her personality, and I could really feel her struggles throughout the book. And then there's Nash - swoon :) Overall this was a great book and I definitely encourage you to pick it up!

  1. My shifter series books are still waiting their turn in my TBR shelf... maybe I ought to bring them up the queue :)

  2. Well all I can say is that Rachel Vincent is now an auto-buy for me and there are few authors that make it on to that list!
