My Soul To Take (Soul Screamers #1) – Rachel Vincent

Synopsis:

She doesn’t see dead people. 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.

Review:

I really enjoyed this book.  I can’t remember reading anything like it before.  It contains Irish folklore and myth with does allow for fleshed out explanations.

It is a a very easy read.  I read it in about 6 hours.  I found it to be very light…meaning there wasn’t a whole lot of back-story or imagery which was fine with me, that is what I was looking for when I picked this up.

The characters were kind of 1 dimensional but I still liked them.  I think “Tod” was my favorite and I hope to see him more in the rest of the series.  Each character is very different you have the stuck up egotistical cousin, the hot jock guy, the girl who doesn’t think she’s beautiful and the best friend who sticks it out and believes.

I did like how “Kaylee” was lied to but when she confronted the person about it they told her the truth.  That is always a pet peeve of mine that a lie can go on throughout an entire book book before someone gives up and spills the beans.  Especially when, you as a reader, know everything that goes on in the book, it can be very irritating.  I never understood that.
