My soul to steal review

My soul to steal by Rachel Vincent
Available now

What's it about?
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.
And Sabine isn’t above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.

Previous books in the series:
My soul to take (Book one) review
My soul to save (Book two) review
My soul to keep (Book three)

My review:
If you haven't read the first three books then there is definitely going to be spoilers in here!
Yet again Rachel Vincent has come up with something unique and written a great book! Even though this is the fourth book in the series it still feels fresh and new and this book sees the introduction of fabulous new character Sabine. I know she's technically the bad guy but I love her, she has a great, slightly psychotic, personality and was a lot of fun to get to know.
Tod is also starting to feature a bit more, I like that he's suportive and protective of Kaylee.
I think Rachel Vincent has done a great job writing Kaylee and Nash's relationship, I can understand all of Kaylees reasons for why she's mad at Nash but yet wants to go back and her reasons for why it won't work, I know I have my own hopes for where this might go but I won't say.
If your reading this review, it's likely because you've read the first three books already so I don't need to go in depth about the writing, it's written just as well as all of Rachel's other books and makes for effortless reading that ends way to soon, I can't wait for 'If I die!'

My thoughts on the cover
Love love love it. The UK covers for this series are just so gorgeous I could stare at them all day, the blue in this is lovely and the butterfly is really cute though I'm not sure how it fits to the story, maybe I'm not interpreting it correctly or maybe it is just there to look awesome, who knows lol

Favourite quotes
(Kaylee) "She ambushed me in the hall this morning and gave me a lecture on sex."
Tod's brows rose halfway to his hairline. "I hope you took notes..."

"Ms Cavanaugh, how delightful to see you again, without all the pretense." - Avari


  1. This looked interesting so I ventured over but I haven't read the previous books. I'm going to look up the series though. I'm definitely want to know more (I scanned the review because you mentioned spoilers but didn't read it thoroughly).

  2. No problem, thanks for stopping by. I do have a review for the first book my soul to take on here, I meant to add a link but I forgot lol it is a great series though :)
