She doesn't see dead people, but…
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.

About The Autho

Rachel Vincent is the author of the Shifters series, about a werecat named Faythe Sanders, who is learning to define her own role in her family and fighting to claim a place in her Pride.
Rachel’s young adult debut, My Soul to Take, will hit the shelves on August 1, 2009. My Soul to Take is the first in the Soul Screamers series, about a teenage bean sidhe (banshee) trying to balance a normal high school experience with the terrifying, hidden world she’s just discovered.
A recent transplant into the deep south, Rachel Vincent has a BA in English and an overactive imagination, and consistently finds the latter to be more practical. She shares her workspace with two black cats (Kaci and Nyx) and her # 1 fan. Rachel is older than she looks-seriously-and younger than she feels, but remains convinced that for every day she spends writing, one more day will be added to her lifespan.

I have to say this is a good solid debut of a new series. I was immediately taken with how believable the situation of the teenagers (Kaylee and Nash) and their world is described. I seriously could not put this book down once I started it. This book is definitely for older teenagers over 14 as there are sexual situations and drug/alcohol references. Adults who enjoy paranormal romance should pick this up as well.

I wish I had more time to go into detail about how much I liked this one, but I will leave it at that. I loved it.


  1. I have heard about this new Harlequin Teen series and from the sound of it this book is definitely worth a try (I mean 5 stars is quite something, isn't it?).

  2. I didn't like Rachel Vincents other books, but now I am going to give them another try. I was very impressed with this series debut. I figure anything that I have to finish in one sitting is worth a five! Your puppy is just sooo cute!


Thanks for leaving a note! I try to reply to all conversations!
