Book Review: My Soul to Save (Soul Screamers #2) by Rachel Vincent

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….

I really enjoyed the first Soul Screamers book, My Soul to Take.  I read book two, My Soul to Save nine months later, even though I meant to keep reading the series right away.  I was saved from the dreaded "what happened in the last book?" thoughts by a neat and concise summary at the beginning of My Soul to Save.

Something about this book fell flat for me.  Part of the problem may have been that I took too long to read it---almost a week.  Taking that long to read a book always makes the book feel choppy for me.  

There were some scary elements to My Soul to Save: the Netherworld, the hellions, and the blank eyes really gave me the creeps.  Of course, being a scaredy-cat and reading alone in the middle of the night probably didn't help things much!  

Rachel Vincent has done a great job creating a unique YA series.  I will definitely be back for more of the Soul Screamers!


  1. This one is next in my TBR pile. I can't wait!

  2. I read the first book and even though it was something fresh I wasn't impressed. Saying that I do want to read the next one. Hopefully the next book is better. Nice review.

  3. I really *like* this series but I don't love it. My Soul to Save actually had the reverse affect on me than on you. I liked it more than My Soul to Take but maybe that's because i read them one after the other. Anyways great review. Make sure you check out My Soul to Keep!

  4. I love this series! But it also drive me insane! I know that weird by Ms. Vincent sure knows how to make me pull out my hair!
