Book Review: My Soul to Take (Soul Screamers #1) by Rachel Vincent

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…

Oh yeah!  I've found a new author!  One of my favorite things about reading is to discover a new author and then compulsively read everything they've written.  That's how I operate, and that's what I'll be doing with Rachel Vincent.  My Soul to Take was the first Rachel Vincent book I've ever read, and I am very impressed. 

I delayed reading this book for a while because I found the cover's kind of demonic, don't you think?  I should know better by now than to judge a book by its cover because My Soul to Take was a great read.

The romantic tension, the plot twists, the unexpected story line, the surprising villain, it was all so refreshing and exciting.  This book had me from the first chapter, and once I started I just couldn't stop.  The story went in a direction I wasn't expecting and I loved it!  I'm not going to say more, just that this paranormal YA series is very unique and unexpected.

Just One Gripe: 
I needed more love...if you've read this you'll know what I mean.  Vincent is so good at describing feelings and emotions that I wanted more.

The Best Thing About This Book:
It is not like every other paranormal YA book out there right now---it's about something totally different.

Appropriate for a younger audience: 

Characters: 4/5
Plot: 4/5
Setting/Imagery: 4/5
Originality: 5/5
Ending: 4/5
Total Score:  21/25
