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…
I heard a lot of good things about THE SOUL SCREAMER series, so when I received My Soul to Take for review, I was more than glad to read it. For one, look at the cover! I’ve got to say that the UK cover is so much better than the US one. Another clear selling point, it’s going to look so pretty on my shelf. Besides, the book in question is really good.
I really liked reading it. It was great reading something besides vampires and werewolves for a change. Something different and unique, My Soul to Take is a story about Kaylee, a girl who can sense when someone is going to die. By screaming.
Kaylee is a kiss-ass character. She’s smart and feisty. However, because of her ability, it had landed her in a psychiatric ward and so she will do anything to not to end up there again. She just wants to be a normal teenager. Have a simply worry free life, have fun and go on great dates.
I don’t know about worry free life but she sure does meet someone. Like, the hottest guy from school. Nash.(What a funny and peculiar name). He takes a keen interest in Kaylee and she starts to like him too. Nash is lovable and protective and just so right for Kaylee. Their relationship was a bit fast and abrupt nevertheless I really liked him! However, Kaylee’s worry comes in about what will happen if he discovers her secret.
The story had a well paced and strong plotline. My Soul to Take was definitely interesting and so I can’t wait to read the next book!
