Rating: 4.5 stars
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…
I absolutely adored this book! I wasn’t sure exactly where My Soul To Take was going to go, but wow was it great! I had never read a book about Banshees, but now I would love to read more about them. It was fascinating reading about their soul screaming and all it could do. My Soul to Take was a refreshing read, as it really stands out in the pool of paranormal.
The writing was superb. I was completely caught up in the story from page 1. All the characters were really well written. Kaylee was a really interesting character and was one you could relate to in some way. She had the same insecurities so many teens have. Nash, Kaylee’s boyfriend, was 100% swoonworthy.
I loved Nash and Kaylee’s relationship, but at first to me it seemed a bit awkward. It moved a bit too fast at first. Kaylee poured out her heart with her biggest secret almost right away, and you’d think you’d get to know someone better.
Rachel Vincent wrote a great book with the perfect mix of mystery, romance, and Banshees. I would definately pick this one up! Harlequin Teen continues to impress me with the books its publishing!
