Download it once and read it on your Kindle device, PC, phones or. my own soul, and I'm so very honored and excited that you've decided Rachel Vincent / 3 grinned again . still lurking on the edges of my mind, ready to take. My Soul to Keep book. Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Kaylee has one addiction: her very hot, very popular boyfriend, Na.
She senses when someone near her is about to die. Rachel Vincent has created such a unique world with a great cast of unforgettable characters that are just plain loveable. Other Editions There were some involving Tod in particular which added intrigue and offered a great deal of insight into the true character of my darling young bad boy. I questioned many times why she did not find someone stronger or more knowledgeable than herself to help. It also deals with the pressure on teens to have sex. I cried through the last chapter but it did leave me a bit confused.
She shares her workspace with two black cats Kaci and Nyx and her 1 fan. Rachel is older than she looks-seriously-and younger than she feels, but remains convinced that for every day she spends writing, one more day will be added to her lifespan.
When Kaylee Cavanaugh screams, someone dies. But starry-eyed teens are trading their souls: Kaylee has one addiction: A banshee like Kaylee, Nash understands her like no one else.
Nothing can come between them. Demon breath. No, not the toothpaste-challenged kind. The Netherworld kind. The kind that really can kill you. Somehow the super-addictive substance has made its way to the human world. But how? Kaylee and Nash have to cut off the source and protect their friends—one of whom is already hooked. Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh.
She can't just pretend nothing happened. But "complicated" doesn't even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back. See, Sabine isn't just an ordinary girl.
She's a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people's fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep.
Feeding from human fear is how she survives. When I hit the "I'm finished" button for this book I truly meant it. I'm finished with this book, and series all together, I can't stand it anymore and it's not worth my reading time. I can see why these books are popular but they're just not for me.
I don't want to rant unreasonably but.. The idea of banshees is wonderful and unique, but when you stick it in a high school and have underlying everyday high school problems with a paranormal twist Anyone know of other boo When I hit the "I'm finished" button for this book I truly meant it. Anyone know of other book series on banshees? The adults here are badly written. First, the right thing is done because the adults are actually clued into the banshee business and everything; in fact they ARE banshees too.
It's a genetic thing. The problem falls when at every turn of events the main character wait what's her name again? Because she is afraid of getting grounded. You know, I really don't have to keep going on that subject. It's ridiculous. And one last small thing.
Think of that. I can't even imagine being mollified by a fifteen year old. And I hope I'm using that word right, because I don't want to be sounding like a fifteen year old. Okay rant over. I'm disappointed. I really wanted to like this series, and I figured three books were enough to judge a seven book series. Don't get me wrong, there were aspects I liked about these books. Tod the reaper. Yeah that's it. The first two books were bearable. This pushed me over the edge. This series is getting pretty intense!!
Can you tell by my adding an extra exclamation point? Kaylee and Nash have now been dating for awhile, and things seem to be going relatively well in regards to their relationship and life in general. That is, until the two realize that several of the guys they know have been using Demon's Breath, a strong narcotic for those with non-human blood, but deadly to those who actually are human. So in this installment of the series, Kaylee and Nash work togethe This series is getting pretty intense!!
So in this installment of the series, Kaylee and Nash work together along with our good friend, Tod the Reaper to get rid of the drug, and hopefully save their friends in the process. So, as I said before, this series has gotten pretty intense for me! I actually am liking the direction this book went in, by giving Kaylee and Nash's relationship a more realistic turn, and allowing for actual conflict. I enjoy sunny relationships, but there's something about this one that has me actually preferring it not to be.
I'm still liking Kaylee. Still thinking Nash is a bit of a tool. And still loving Tod, cause even with how things turned out for him in the second book, he continues to be his funny and 'nuisance to Nash', self. Oh, and Kaylee's best friend Emma is still her wonderfully, understanding self. Maybe too understanding at times, cause I would really get upset if I was constantly being told nothing, when it's obvious that something is going on, but her trusting Kaylee has her mostly accepting what she is told.
I'm not saying she's a pushover, cause she's not. She's just that good of a friend. I'm still really enjoying this series, so it's on to the next for me. Sep 05, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: The Good: Tod is becoming a much more compelling character. He seems to be growing into his role and becoming a better person, in sharp contrast to his brother.
The Bad: Kaylee conveniently forgets crucial details on a regular basis. It drags the books out, ridiculous when they're so short as it is.
Any reader even halfway paying attention will completely remember the The Good: Any reader even halfway paying attention will completely remember these things and grow increasingly frustrated throughout the book. And then there's the whole boyfriend hiding things from her. Unforgivable things. Add that to the fact that the characters continue to hide everything possible from the adults in their lives for no good reason other than "parents just don't understand.
Yet, let's just screw ourselves over and go completely unprepared into mortal danger time and again because parents are dumb or whatever. Maybe this thing resonates with teen readers, but as an adult with the ability to judge the parents on their previous reactions to situations in the series, these kids are coming off as complete idiots begging to be killed.
Oct 24, Jac rated it liked it. I think this was the most disappointing book so far in the series. Tod is rapidly becoming my favorite character but there was so little of him in this book. Once he came back into play, I wanted to keep reading simply because he was involved. Nash's character really disturbed me because in this book compared to the others he had a completely different personality. To me it was almost like she was writing about another character entirely just with Nash's body.
I realize that was her intention bu I think this was the most disappointing book so far in the series.
I realize that was her intention but it was seriously off putting from the very beginning. Also, the issue in this book seemed too "real-world" for a paranormal fantasy which really irked me. A deadly drug running rampant throughout a public high school. I do enjoy Vincent's work I just hope she returns to why I enjoyed this series to begin with.
Banshees are such a fresh concept and with this last book I felt she was wasting its potential just to have another book on the shelves. I really hope the next book doesn't disappoint. Aug 01, Heidi rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: My Ratings Plot: Kaylee Cavanaugh is just your everyday high school student, except she was a bean sidhe banshee.
Along with her boyfriend Nash, who is also a bean sidhe, and his brother Tod, the reaper, Kaylee is coming to grips with her powers and her tie to the Netherworld.
First Line My Ratings Plot: First Line The whole thing started with a wasted Jock and a totaled car…… My Synopsis Kaylee Cavanaugh first night out, after being grounded for a month, ended with a real bang.
It is highly addictive substance, that can kill humans or maybe worse drive them insane. Kaylee has to proceed carefully, or she may lose something that she holds very dear. This book deals not only with drug use, but addiction and it consequences. It also deals with the pressure on teens to have sex. Also, the teens is in series sound and react like real teens, not how an adult might thinks a teen would sound and react.
I enjoyed reading about how Kaylee is dealing with her relationship with Nash through out the beginning of the book. Are they soul mates? I mean forever is a long time when you are a bean sidhe. I remember going through these same issues as a teen, and I can really relate to her character.
For me the stand out character from this book is Tod. He really steps up in this book. He does what has to be done, even risking the love of his undead life, to help Kaylee. He may, at first, come a crossed as somewhat obnoxious and self centered. I see this as more of a smoke screen.
With each book, we get to see more and more of who he really is, and I really like it. I read the last chapter with my hand covering my mouth in complete and utter shock. All I wanted to do is cry for Kaylee. My heart broke after reading what Nash had done, and how he had treated Kaylee. His actions had so many awful consequences. Will Kaylee, in time, come to forgive Nash for his appalling behavior?
The Soul Screamer books are getting better and better, with each book released. Sep 12, Susi rated it really liked it. I personaggi si evolvono, crescono e affrontano problemi concreti e tematiche sentimentali.
Il mondo dei bean sidhe si evolve ed entrano a far parte nuove e misteriose creature, e un nuovo pericolo minaccia gli amici dei nostri protagonisti. Kaylee, anche se a mio avviso soffre della sindrome del buon samaritano indispensabile ai fini dello sviluppo di una serie di romanzi cosi lunga , riesce ad integrarsi nel mondo magico di cui fa parte, capire le dinamiche che lo muovono, e riuscire anche a sfruttarle a suo vantaggio.

Never exactly a light series, Soul Screamers takes a notably dark turn in this book. After a party that gets out of hand, Kaylee begins to suspect that some of her classmates are using demon's breath--a Netherworld substance with hallucinogenic properties. She and Nash set out to cut off the source of the drug before things turn deadly.
First of all, I have to applaud Vincent for attempting to tackle as difficult a topic as addiction. What I have admired about this series most thus far is that sh Never exactly a light series, Soul Screamers takes a notably dark turn in this book.
What I have admired about this series most thus far is that she manages to address real problems common to many teenagers, but does so through fantasy elements.
From parents and school, to the will-they-or-won't-they aspect of Nash and Kaylee's physical relationship, these character read like real teenagers. In this particular book the addiction is used to illuminate many of the character's flaws, fears, and inner demons. There was a great deal of character development and many emotional moments. Vincent continues to build the paranormal aspects of her world, hinting at more interesting facets and possible future plot threads all the time.
While this takes a back seat in many cases to the internal struggles, it's still fairly well done and worth noting. Kaylee is left on he own or with very limited help many times throughout this book, and in many cases that seemed needless.
I questioned many times why she did not find someone stronger or more knowledgeable than herself to help. One would assume that if there are a decent number of banshees and other creatures, there should be some kind of leader, or a warrior class, anyone at all that could step in when someone evil threatens multiple lives. Or it could all be left up to a teenage girl My other major complaint is the utter lack of resolution in the ending.
One of two things needed to happen in this ending: She half-asses it instead, saying she wants him to get better so she can have him back. In a long established relationship, that would make sense: I would be able to believe that she loved him and that their relationship could sustain temporary separation for the purpose of mental healing.
However, their relationship is fairly new--three months I believe. Realistically, even if they felt in love, taking a break at this point would mean the end because the relationship is not established enough to survive it.
So yes, I hated the ending and I felt it was a massive cop out on the authors part. These complaints aside, this was a good book overall. It had a lot of depth and emotion without needless angst. Oct 28, Chibineko rated it really liked it. If you haven't read any of Rachel Vincent's SoulScreamers series, then you are seriously missing out. They get to enjoy all of the stuff that the adults would like but they also have the joy of knowing that at no point does this book "write down" to them.
As a teen I'd often get irritated at the overly perfect If you haven't read any of Rachel Vincent's SoulScreamers series, then you are seriously missing out.
The good girls never drank or stayed out late, always studied Kaylee's had it rough. Not only has she spent most of her life assuming that there's something wrong with her, but even after she discovered her bean sidhe heritage it hasn't been easy. Unfortunately for her, someone's smuggling Demon's Breath into the mortal world- a substance so incredibly addicting that coming down from it can kill you. It's up to her to find out a way to stop the distribution of it before her entire school becomes addicted.
Also interesting is the character of Nash, Kaylee's boyfriend who may or may not be more in love with the fact she's a bean sidhe than with Kaylee herself. There's also new characters introduced in this book, one of which will hopefully turn into a new suitor for Kaylee.
Hey, Nash needs competition. If you haven't been reading the series, I highly suggest that you start from the first book in the series as well as reading the free "chapter zero" available on Vincent's site. ARC provided by NetGalley Wow, what a ride My Soul to Keep was. After reading My Soul to Save I was a little bit disappointed that is wasn't as good book one but Rachel Vincent is definitely back.
In this instalment we see Kaylee go through a whole new challenge. When her friends at school get a hold of the deadly Demon's Breath, they soon start becoming addicts and of course Kaylee takes it upon herself to try and sort out the problem.
With the help of Nash and Tod, Kaylee battles through the Neverworld yet again but when she finds out the person closet to her is also an addict Kaylee's world is turned upside down and now it becomes a battle to save the one she loves most. It's safe to say I definitely felt more connected with this novel than book two. Kaylee this time around, I felt grew as a character and she truly stands up for what she believes in.
It is sad to say that this time, her journey is a sad one because she is trying to save Nash who is addicted to Demon's Breath and that opens up a can of worms for their relationship. Kaylee feels betrayed because Nash doesn't confide in her about his problem and there are things that she just can't get over, so they do break up. I can totally understand why she feels like this but I couldn't help feel sorry for Nash. It's not his fault he was exposed to Demon's Breath, it was just his fault he hid it and lied about it.
My heart honestly broke for him, I love Nash Despite all the sadness in this book, it was good to see Tod interact more with Kaylee. I've already heard of a potential storyline that might happen between them and I'm not sure how I feel about it at the moment but for now, I did enjoy getting to know him better and I loved how he supported Kaylee.
I can't wait to see what happens next. Thank You to Mira Ink for giving me the opportunity to review this book. Apr 06, Mlpmom Book Reviewer rated it it was amazing. Okay, sometimes I am wrong about characters, I mean take Nash for instance.
I was really starting to like him, I mean swoon worthy like, but now? Now, not so much.
Can I just say that he was kind of a jerk in this book? Okay, okay, there were some issues there, I get that. And without giving too much away, I still think he could have handled things so much better. In fact, I think I might want to smack him. He knows better.
I will say this though, I love Tod even more now. I alway Okay, sometimes I am wrong about characters, I mean take Nash for instance. I always knew he was going to be a great character and I think with the last book and now this one, that just proves that I am not always wrong about characters.
I just really hope Nash can get with it and not make me want to smack him in the next book. Truly, because that is just sad.
Having said all that though, and hopefully not have giving anything away, I really adore this series. Rachel Vincent has created such a unique world with a great cast of unforgettable characters that are just plain loveable. And I love that with each book Kaylee just keeps getting stronger and stronger and more independent, even if that independence isn't always the best thing for her to be doing.
I love that she is trying to learn more about herself and the Underworld. That she wants to make a difference and that she doesn't need a guy to get there and to do that. I am not going to lie, by the end of this book I felt my heart breaking a little for Kaylee and the choices that she had to make. I really look forward to reading the next book in the series. This series is quite addicting! Nash Hudson. Kaylee Cavanaugh. How do series work? Top bar: Soul Screamers Series by cover 1—8 of 19 next show all.
