My Soul to Keep by Rachel Vincent

Genre:  YA Paranormal Fantasy
Soul Screamers, Book 3

Description (taken from Rachel Vincent's website):

Kaylee has one addiction: her very hot, very popular boyfriend, Nash. A banshee like Kaylee, Nash understands her like no one else. Nothing can come between them. Until something does.

Demon’s breath. No, not the toothpaste-challenged kind. The Netherworld kind. The kind that really can kill you. Somehow, the super-addictive substance has made its way to the human world. But how? Kaylee and Nash have to cut off the source and protect their friends—one of whom is already hooked. And when the epidemic hits too close to home, Kaylee will have to risk everything to save those she loves.

I really love this series.  I enjoyed the first two books.  However, I felt like this one started out a little slow.  But no matter, I was completely hooked once I was halfway into the book.  I still agree with my statement that the plot lines are predictable.  However, it's the ride through the book that makes it worth it.

When Kaylee and Nash go chasing the root cause of the new drug fad, I got intrigued.  And while the theme of this book is a little different from the first two books, the emotions feel real.  However, I think it hit a little too close to home for me, and that's why I can associate so well with Kaylee and her struggles (even though I don't have that pesky screaming ability).

Honestly, what other books out there are about banshees?  If paranormal fantasy is one of your favorites, then you'll want to read these books.  If you're someone like me who can't sit through contemporary novels very well but will read anything regarding real-life situations with the added paranormal twist, then go read these books.
