151) My Soul To Steal by Rachel Vincent

The Blurb -

Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can’t just pretend nothing happened. But “complicated” doesn’t even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.

See, Sabine isn’t just an ordinary girl. She’s a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people’s fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives.

And Sabine isn’t above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever— and whoever—she wants.


My Review -

The end of Rachel Vincent's Werecat series was amazing but sad at the same time. No more Faythe and the other cats. However there was a silver lining and that came in the form of the Soul Screamer series which is written by the same author. This may only be aimed at Young Adults but any lover of the author will enjoy this series. Actually how can anyone not enjoy this series?

Soul Screamers book 4 a.k.a My Soul To Steal picks up the story a few weeks after the last book, My Soul to Keep, left us. Kaylee is back in school and she has to deal with seeing Nash again but there are some weird and annoying disruptions going on around the couple which stop them from really working things out. Which is basically what this book is about. The relationship, the lack of, the will they ever work it out and of course the spanner thrown in the works which comes in the shape of Sabine.

While this book was certainly good and definitely worth reading, this one lacked a big huge dose of the paranormal. There is a plot going on to do with Hellions but to be honest it wasn't enough for me and I wanted more. Kaylee hardly screamed liked a Banshee and there were too many couple problems. Although maybe that is my age just showing :)

This is still a must read series and author for me. I am really looking forward to finding out more about the little gifts they all got at the end of this book. A great addition to the series but it didn't top the previous books. Pre-order this if you have been following the story because you don't want to miss this and if you haven't tried this yet then you really need to check it out.
