Review #29 My Soul To Keep

My Soul to Keep
By Rachel Vincent
Publication date: June 1, 2010
My rating: ****1/2

My review:

Teenagers at Kaylee's school have been getting high on a new mysterious substance that doesn't show up on drug tests, a deadly and highly addictive drug from the Netherworld that causes insanity and death. Now she and Nash must try to find out how this "drug" is being brought into their world and put a stop to it before it's too late and the whole school is exposed.

My Soul To Keep is the third book in the Soul Screamers series and in my opinion it is better than My Soul To Save.  One of the themes explored in the book is that people have to deal with the consequences of their decisions. Kaylee has gone through a lot in the previous books but in My Soul To Keep, she faces some of the hardest decisions of her life. I like how her character grows over the course of the series although it would be good if she relied on adults more for advice instead of just her boyfriend and Tod. In this book I found that I liked Tod more especially after reading My Soul To Save. He is more than just the comic relief or sidekick.

This time around, Kaylee and Nash's relationship is a bigger part of the novel although the suspense also keeps the pages turning. Kaylee also has a new scary ability to deal with. Altogether it makes for a fantastic story and I would have to say My Soul To Keep is the best in the series. If you are a fan of paranormal romance and you haven't tried the Soul Screamers series yet, you are in for a treat!

Note: The cover image is not finalized so the final published cover may have a slightly different look.

  1. I've been thinking about trying out this series - now I'll probably have to, if you like them! :D

  2. I downloaded the 1st two books in this series today. The 1st is free on kindle at the moment.

    I loved the Wake thrilogy so I think I will enjoy this also.

  3. I havent read this series yet but it sounds very good from your review.

  4. Great review! I can't wait to read this book. I've read the two first books and they were great. Do you know if this will be the last book in the series or will there be another one? :)

  5. I enjoyed reading your review! I'm not familiar with this series (or even this genre!) but it definitely sounds like a good one. I'll have to check it out eventually!
