My Soul to Save Review

When people die, Kaylee screams. It’s what she does. As a bean sidhe/banshee Kaylee sings for the person’s soul as it floats out of their body. When she’s done with her song, the soul is gone. So when Kaylee attends a concert for a popular pop star and doesn’t start singing when the girl drops dead, she doesn’t understand what’s going on.

Apparently the pop star didn’t have a soul anymore, so there was nothing to sing for. Popular teenage celebrities are selling their souls to the Netherworld for fortune and fame and they have no idea what they’re getting into. Replacing their souls is Demon’s Breath and when it is time, a reaper will come to collect the Demon’s Breath and then the person is no more. Their soul will be tortured forever in the Netherworld and they will never be at peace.

But none of this is known to these young celebrities when they signed on the dotted line in a binding contract to make them famous. All they knew is that they would forever be popular and have all the money they could ever need.

Kaylee has seen firsthand what happens when someone sells a soul to a reaper. She doesn’t want to see anymore people suffer and is determined to retrieve the souls back to the celebrities before their time runs out. The only problem is this requires a trip to the Netherworld and Kaylee has never been there before. It’s an extremely dangerous place and without knowing what she is getting into, she might never come back. Kaylee, her boyfriend Nash, and his reaper brother Tod embark on a journey to save some souls but will they lose their own in the process?

My Soul to Save is the second book in the Soul Screamers Series featuring Kaylee Cavanaugh, a bean sidhe/banshee. This is a Young Adult Urban Fantasy series but is written in a way that adults can equally enjoy it as well. I fell in love with this series after reading the first book, My Soul to Take. This second book is much darker, grittier, and scary at times.

The suspense was exciting, the romance between Nash and Kaylee really heated up, and the reader gets to learn more about Tod, the reaper. This series has so many interesting layers to it and I am thrilled with each new development. Kaylee is no longer just standing by singing for people’s souls; she’s doing whatever she can to save them now. She is a determined, strong, brave, teenager that is on a mission to help people and refuses to quit even if it means risking her own life.

I read My Soul to Save all in one day and could not put it down for a second. I HIGHLY recommend this series to young adults and adults alike who are looking for something fresh and different to read. This is book two so if you are new to this series, I recommend reading it in order for full reading enjoyment. Overall, My Soul to Save is superb and bypassed all of my expectations. Rachel Vincent has really outdone herself with this new installment in the Soul Screamer Series. Look out for the third book, My Soul to Keep,  due out June 1, 2010.

  5. Saw your blog mentioned on Alexia's site and thought I'd stop by to say hello. A great blog. I so want to read these books despite promising myself that I wouldn't start any more books that were part of a series. Oh well best intentions and all that.
