Fiktshun's Soul Screamers Reading Challenge: My Soul to Save by Rachel Vincent

 There will be spoilers in this post from My Soul to Take. If you want to know more about the Soul Screamers books then check out my review of My Soul to Take here!

  Synopsis (From the Waterstones Website)
When teenager Kaylee screams, someone dies...So when teen pop star Eden dies onstage and Kaylee doesn't wail, she knows something is dead wrong. She can't cry for someone who has no soul. The last thing Kaylee needs right now is to be skipping school, breaking her dad's ironclad curfew and putting her too-hot-to-be-real boyfriend's loyalty to the test. But starry-eyed teens are trading their souls: a flickering lifetime of fame and fortune in exchange for eternity in the Netherworld - a consequence they can't possibly understand. Kaylee can't let that happen, even if trying to save their souls means putting her own at risk.

What I Have to Say

I didn't think My Soul to Save was any better than My Soul to Take, but I didn't think it was any worse either. They're both really great books, so this isn't a bad thing at all. Too many books try to escalate the drama until it becomes unrealistic - sustainable quality is a really good thing in a series and Rachel Vincent really pulls it off.

I liked seeing more of Tod and exploring other sides of his character. It made him more of a main character and less of just someone who's there.  I also really love the relationship between Nash and Tod. It works so well because it's both funny and realistic. 

Another good thing about this book is that we get to see Kaylee develop and start to learn about what she can do as a Bean Sidhe. She's getting more integrated into the supernatural world. 

Also we get to learn more about the Netherworld! Which is always cool and Vincent shows that she can be just as imaginative in creating faery worlds/ demon dimensions as the other writers around her. 

It's completely worth reading more of this series and I can't wait to read the next book (which I will do much sooner than I did this one!!! >< you can blame the reading I've had to do for uni for that xD). 


  1. I didn't enjoy this one anywhere near as much as I did the first.

  2. I am very interested to read this particular book to find out more about a bean sidhe! The name rung a bell immediately but I am looking forward to finding out more!
    thank you for the interesting and well written reviews as they make picking something to read much easier! Love the layout of the site, nice and easy to navigate.

    1. Make sure you start with My Soul to Take. That's the first one in the series.

      So glad you like the site ^_^ Most of the easy navigation is new and I just tried to do what I would like in a site.

  3. Having read this I believed it was extremely enlightening. I
    appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this article together.

    I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time
    both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
