Description

When Kaylee Cavanaugh screams, someone dies.

So when teen pop star Eden croaks onstage and Kaylee doesn’t wail, she knows something is dead wrong. She can’t cry for someone who has no soul.

The last thing Kaylee needs right now is to be skipping school, breaking her dad’s ironclad curfew and putting her too-hot-to-be-real boyfriend’s loyalty to the test. But starry-eyed teens are trading their souls: 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….

Review ***SPOILERS***

This story is absolutely fantastic! Yet again Rachel Vincent has created a world and characters that just surpass all expectations!

In the second book of the Soul Screamers series we revisit favourite characters from the first story and also meet new characters as well as some excellent fiends.

So the book really centres around Kaylee, Nash and Tod desperately trying to save Tod’s ex-girlfriend and pop star Addison’s soul from a rather nasty hellion of Avarice. Not your average teenage problem!

Though problem certainly seems an apt word when describing this book, so many times I thought a problem was going to be solved, another complication was placed on top of the original problem, until I lost count of all the obstacles that was in the way of a happy ending and just had permanent anxiety throughout the entirety of the book!

But I LOVED it, one of the things I’ve found Rachel Vincent can always extract out of me is a reaction, she always has me feeling a whirlwind of emotions, and My Soul to Save is no exception.

I didn’t feel as though we saw much more depth to the characters in this story but I don’t feel that’s a bad thing. We saw a new side to Tod that I really didn’t like, he seemed to have a connection (even if it was only small) with Kaylee in My Soul to Take, but he is endangering both her and Nash in this story and even goes as far as putting Kaylee’s life in direct danger. I’m looking forward to seeing how Tod and Nash’s relationship fares in the next instalment! I also really hope Kaylee and her father’s relationship grows, I feel as though they’re not on the same page at all at the moment and really felt for them throughout the story.

This book was thrilling, Kaylee is certainly a character to admire! If you’ve yet to try the Soul Screamers series, pick up your copy today, you won’t regret it!
