Review: My Soul to Save by Rachel Vincent
“If she were going to die, I’d already be screaming. I’m a banshee. That’s what we do.”
The last thing Kaylee needs right now is to be skipping school, breaking her dad’s ironclad curfew and putting her boyfriend’s loyalty to the test. But starry-eyed teens are trading their souls for a flickering lifetime of fame and fortune in exchange for eternity in the Netherworld — a consequence they can’t possibly understand. Kaylee can’t let that happen, even if trying to save their souls means putting her own at risk....
Review: This was a wonderful follow up to My Soul to Take, which I loved. It had the same quick pacing that allowed you to learn more about the Banshees without dragging along, the same solid plot that kept you captivated, and the same unique characters that brought the story to life.
Although the pacing was good, this book seemed slower to me, and I don't mean that in a bad way. It had plenty of action and mystery, but it wasn't rushed.
I loved how we were introduced to new characters and places. We weren't given minor characters that would only take up space and then be killed/move away etc. (well maybe one). The minor characters were just as important as Kaylee and Nash, and that was refreshing.
I was also super excited that we finally a glimpse of the Netherworld. It helped to expand my knowledge of the Banshees without cramming it all down my throat at once.
Overall this was a fantastic sequel and everyone who read My Soul to Take should definitely read it.
Note on the cover: I preferred the type of cover from the first book: where the person was smaller and centered on the cover. That way we saw all of her. Not just half of her.
