Book Review: With All My Soul (Soul Screamers #7) by Rachel Vincent

What does it mean when your school is voted the most dangerous in America? It's time to kick some hellion butt...

After not really surviving her junior year (does "undead" count as survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the hellions causing all the trouble. She's going to find a way to turn the incarnations of Avarice, Envy and Vanity against one another in order to protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever.

But then she meets Wrath and understands that she's closer to the edge than she's ever been. And when one more person close to her is taken, Kaylee realizes she can't save everyone she loves without risking everything she has....

I've been a long-time fan of the Soul Screamers series, and I'm so happy with how Vincent concluded the series.  With All My Soul was my favorite Soul Screamers book. 

Kaylee is a great heroine: she is smart, strong, and loyal.  Her vulnerability lies in her refusal to let anyone get hurt on her behalf.  She is fiercely protective of her loved ones, protective to the point of putting herself in danger to keep others safe.  And that quality was never more evident than in With All My Soul.  Kaylee makes a huge sacrifice at the end of the book, one that surprised me in its intensity and severity, but it was the perfect ending to the series.

I loved the way Vincent wrapped up each character's story.  I love getting glimpses into my favorite characters' futures, and Vincent really delivered in that regard.  I also enjoyed Kaylee's character growth and strength.  She matured a lot throughout the series.

I can't put my finger on what exactly kept this series from being a stand-out series for me.  Maybe it was the fact that there was so much of a focus on high school, I'm not sure, but I did really enjoy the series, it's just not an all-time favorite for me.

I do recommend the Soul Screamers series, for fans of YA and fans of paranormal fiction.  I liked that this series features a somewhat unique paranormal species and had a different kind of twist to it.

  1. With All My Soul is a magnificent ending to a strong and original series. The novel wraps up all loose ends and leaves the reader satisfied, also slightly emotional. Yes it may be the end of Kaylee and the gang but the journey has been worthwhile and one I recommend to all new readers. Rachel Vincent has written a very satisfying conclusion to her YA series.
