My soul to take review
What's it about?
Being a teenager just got much more complicated. There is something very wrong with Kaylee Cavanaugh: 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 the need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who'll be next.
Rachel Vincents easy-to-read writing style had me knowing I'd like this book within a few pages, and I wasn't disappointed.
I read a lot of fantasy books, YA and Adult, so I've read a lot of Vampires and Werewolves and such but this is the first time I've come across a book about a teenage Banshee or Bean Sidhe, this and the lack of a 'forbidden love' made for a refreshing change. Don't worry, there is a love interest for our young heroine but it's more straight forward than some other stories.
I found I liked all of the characters although none more than others, Kaylee is a nice young girl, sometimes funny, who takes the news of what she is very well and Nash is certainly great boyfriend material!
Although some of the plot was more obvious than other parts I was still guessing til the very end.
Needless to say I'm looking forward to the second book in the series My soul to save.
