My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent

Genre:  YA Urban Fantasy
Soul Screamers Series, Book 4

Description (taken from Rachel Vincent's website):
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.

This is definitely a series that holds a special place in my heart.  I absolutely love Kaylee's supernatural world.  And how she reacts to everyday situations is perfect.  There's enough humor, enough emotion, and a lot of empathy.  One of the things that makes this series one of my favorites is there are some very heavy topics approached in these books.  They involve a lot of mistakes and heart ache.  And a lot of these sad emotions are things I don't care to read about, but they happen so much in real life, that it's super easy to relate to these books.

As to this book in the series, sorry.  I don't think I can review it without giving things away.  The new girl, Sabine, however is a delicious treat.  She does make things awkward, yet interesting.  Definitely loved the story here.

While this book definitely isn't my favorite, my rating is influenced by the series as a whole...  I will definitely be reading the next book and trying to catch up.  If you haven't started this series, I suggest you pick them up.

  1. I still haven't read the third one, but I've heard a lot of people say they have a big reaction to Nash's behavior in that book. It kind of puts me off reading it, but it also makes me really curious...
