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.Rachel Vincent is a work of magic. Her writing is literally addictive. I couldn't put the book down! I'm new to her work, so I didn't know what to expect. This is a very hyped series, and everyone loves it. It made me scared that I'd be one of the few that don't really like it. But, thank goodness, I'm on the side of every other Kaylee and Nash lover.
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 Soul to Take starts off with Kaylee and her best friend Emma entering a club. Yes, they are underage. Only way they are able to get in is because Emma sister is a bartender. Emma is a pretty and popular girl, whereas Kaylee is more of the opposite. So when Nash Hudson, one of the handsomest guys at her school, starts talking to her at the club, Kaylee is very surprised. Of course, she engages into their conversation. As the night goes on, the club is pumping, and the crowd are all excited, something happens. Not to everyone, just Kaylee. All of a sudden, she has this urge to scream. Not a regular roller coaster scream. More of a bloody-murder/break-your-eardrums scream. It's clawing at her throat, threatening to get out. Until Nash and Emma take her outside. That is after she looks at a girl and sees that there's a dark shadow covering her body.
Nash. Nash. Nash. Hot, adorable, funny, and a bean sidhe. Or, as I like to call it, a Banshee. Same as Kaylee. Opposites attracted, but boy, Kaylee and Nash are inseparable. Especially when they had to figure out why girls were mysteriously dying. 3 girls in 3 days from 3 neighboring areas. Suspicious or no? That's where Tod comes on to the equation. Tod. Tod. Tod. Hot, adorable, funny, and a reaper. Yes, like the Grim Reaper. A soul snatcher. But, Tod is nice . . enough. I really like him, even though he's a killer.
To sum it all up, this was a very well likable book. I already made sure I got the second book, because I am dying to understand why it's called My Soul to Save. I think something's going to happen to Kaylee's soul in the next book (I haven't read the description just yet).
Someone tell me why it took me this long to read this book? Holy crap (excuse my French) was I blown away! Yes, that is my way of telling you all to read this book. If you haven't already!
“Kaylee, you're adding two and two and coming up with seven.”
