    This is where it started.This is where it all began.Oy My review for this book really is one long ass fangirl rant Mighty embarrassing and I know that some of my points are invalid since I know in which direction the series headed after this book and I have to grudgingly admit that I do see the bigger picture now butI ll still leave this review as it is There s one thing I wanna say, thoughit s been what 7 years since I read this And I can tell you, I am still not over what happened This is where it started.This is where it all began.Oy My review for this book really is one long ass fangirl rant Mighty embarrassing and I know that some of my points are invalid since I know in which direction the series headed after this book and I have to grudgingly admit that I do see the bigger picture now butI ll still leave this review as it is There s one thing I wanna say, thoughit s been what 7 years since I read this And I can tell you, I am still not over what happened I ll be reminded of this at the oddest timesLike todayThis series is the reason why I hate love triangles so much This series is the reason why I completely lose my marbles whenever love interests switch I ve never been able to forgive Rachel Vincent for making me invest in a character only to utterly annihilate him Everything he was, all that was good about himcompletely destroyed I truly hate this series with a passion It left scars Deep ones Original review from 2011Whoever said it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved was full of crap I cannot believe I finally caved in After the drama of the third book and what it did to my state of mind I declared it unsafe and potentially harmful to myself to read this book But I am weak So so weak hangs head See, I am absolutely crazy about this series Just how crazy I am might become obvious after I have given you a glimpse into my twisted little mind Even while my review and status updates might convince you otherwise, let me be clear about something right from the start I am Team Nash All the way I know he messed up pretty badly in book 3 and, well, also in book 4, IMO, but nevertheless, I love that guy Now there are people who think Kaylee should end up with Tod in the end I will come back to that again later on but I strongly disagree And do you know what I think whenever I see people mentioning how they want Kay and Nash to break up I wish they would just shut up and hope that Rachel Vincent doesn t read these reviews, takes it to heart and therefore lets Kay end up with Tod instead because OMG that would just about kill me Does that make you understand how far gone I am I am turning into a freakin headcase But admitting your problem is the first step on the road to recovery, right RIGHT So, why am I this obsessed For one thing, I like the whole banshee concept It s a breath of fresh air, at least I haven t seen anything like this in YA before but even while I think the concept is refreshing, I also feel like the existence of banshees is kinda pointless I mean, what good is a banshee They can tell when somebody s about to die, big deal, but what s the use It s not like they re getting anything out of it, right Or can do anything about it, for that matter Because whenever they interfere, somebody else has to die instead And let s not even talk about the male banshees They are utterly useless I know what they can do with their abilities but still, I don t really see the point Nevertheless, the banshees, the reaper, the Netherworld, the whole borrowed time thingit s all pretty cool, IMO.Now about this particular installment of the Soul Screamers series it might get a little spoilery now but if you have seen my status updates you are already spoiled so no need to worry I am so unbelievably pissed off that I really don t know how to rate this On the one hand, I should give it 5 stars for making me scream, for making me cry and for basically driving me insane but on the other hand, I should only give it 1 star because of the exact same reasons That was just a bit too much drama for me No wait, drama is not the right word This was torture I was dragged in so many different directions, emotionally speaking, that I felt like I would tear Rachel Vincent stretched me to, and beyond my personal breaking point I went from feeling sorry for Nash, to hating him, to loving him, to wanting to rip his balls off and ending up feeling betrayed, hurt, sad, angry and being totally confused Same with Kaylee and Tod Not with Sabine, though I just plain hate her She can go drown somewhere for all I care It s like Kaylee saidNash and I were like the wreckage of two cars that had hit head on We were tangled up in each other so thoroughly that I could no longer tell which parts of us were him and which were me We could probably never be truly untangled not after what we d been through together but I had serious doubts we could ever really recapture what we d hadThe whole situation is such a big stinking mess and it just hurts So.Fucking.Much And you know what the worst part is Rachel Vincent took away my hope because I honestly don t see how Kaylee and Nash will ever make this work again And I am very unhappy with Rachel because of that Now it s getting really spoilery so stay away if you haven t read the other books Alright, I need to get back again to that Tod business What is all this talk about him and Kaylee ending up together That s bullshit, IMO I mean, he is a reaper, He Is Dead., so why on earth would it be better for Kaylee to be with him Further, he s losing touch with his humanity Just look at how differently he s behaving in this book from how he was behaving in Reaper He s becoming less and less human But back to what s actually said in the book What s all this crap about how Kaylee doesn t need Nash but Sabine does What kind of argument is that Nash LOVES Kaylee and she LOVES him and just because some people think it would be better if they were with someone else instead they should just end their relationship now Kaylee should just send Nash back to Sabine What the hell It doesn t work like that But ok, for the sake of argument let s say Nash and Sabine really should be together because they both need each other and because they re equally messed up So, could someone please explain to me why Kaylee would need Tod Or Alec, for that matter She doesn t need any of the three This argument is ridiculous You know, I was pretty pissed off at Kaylee in this book, I think she let Nash down and I hated how she just kept pushing him away and into Sabine s arms but at the end of the day, I am on her side and first and foremost, I am Team Kaylee So screw you Nash, screw you Sabine and screw you Tod.What also annoyed me was how everybody kept using the fact that Nash only gave away memories of his time with Kaylee, to prove that he doesn t love her all that much Well, Avari wasn t interested in any other memories He specifically asked for those because in the long run, he wanted to hurt Kaylee and I honestly believe that Nash wasn t aware of the consequences As he said, he didn t realize that the memories would be worthless if he couldn t feel them any The only thing that s really inexcusable IMO is the fact that he let Avari possess Kaylee on a regular basis sigh I could go on like this forever but I really need to put this behind me now I m already afraid that I need to get therapy because of this bookSo, altogether I found this rather unsatisfying and the ending was not worth the torture This was just too much relationship drama for me

    Kaylee and Nash are in limbo after she breaks up with him Things shake up when Nash s NIGHTMARE of an ex, Sabine shows up Except,and there s zero catiness as I type thisSabine really is a NIGHTMARE.I ve finally figured out what made me not like the first two they read sounded young, granted the books are YA, I just couldn t connect their youngish tone Basically, The premise was solid, but the writing was not on the mark BUT Come the third book and now the fourth one, the characters Kaylee and Nash are in limbo after she breaks up with him Things shake up when Nash s NIGHTMARE of an ex, Sabine shows up Except,and there s zero catiness as I type thisSabine really is a NIGHTMARE.I ve finally figured out what made me not like the first two they read sounded young, granted the books are YA, I just couldn t connect their youngish tone Basically, The premise was solid, but the writing was not on the mark BUT Come the third book and now the fourth one, the characters had matured and so had the writing What really surprised me was the constant weight on my chest present as I read To Steal It s definitely edgier and muchrelatable Sabine She kicked this series up a couple of notches in my regard too Now right there is a bitch who knows she s one Absolutely no pretense on her part A little cold blooded but she spiced up the series for me She is totally different from the villains of old Aunt Val, The Hellion and Avari, because she seemedhuman Cool, no Nash If something seems too good to be true, it probably isn t And in the first book, he was definitely too good, to be true I had my doubts about him then, but here, his I me myself mentality really got to me And yes, I know there s no Nash Kaylee Todd triangle, but if there was my choice is clear Kaylee She has finally grown a pair And I loved it She s paranoid and really bitchy, but at least she admitted it In a word Relatable She s no longer the goody goody bean sidhe doormat trying to save the world, but a girl trying to settle things with her boyfriend It seems all it takes for me to change my stance from just reading to loving this series is a relatable main character I really enjoyed My Soul To Steal So, for being edgier, darker for having a muchrelatable MC, To Steal has redeemed this series in my eyes I officially love the series

    This series just keeps getting better and better and My Soul to Steal is definitely my favorite thus far The book starts with Nash and Kaylee s relationship in limbo as a result of Nash s addiction to frost Kaylee can t come to terms yet after everything that has happened Enter Sabine, Nash s ex girlfriend who is literally Kaylee s worst nightmare Sabine s a mara , someone who feeds off of other people s fears by way of their bad dreams and Kaylee seems to be 1 on her hit list I loved h This series just keeps getting better and better and My Soul to Steal is definitely my favorite thus far The book starts with Nash and Kaylee s relationship in limbo as a result of Nash s addiction to frost Kaylee can t come to terms yet after everything that has happened Enter Sabine, Nash s ex girlfriend who is literally Kaylee s worst nightmare Sabine s a mara , someone who feeds off of other people s fears by way of their bad dreams and Kaylee seems to be 1 on her hit list I loved how the story played out Kaylee s thoughts and emotions were very real The way she was torn about getting back together with Nash was believable and I liked how resolute she was in making sure of her feelings before even attempting to dive back into a relationship with him Nash has yet to redeem himself in my eyes although he was working hard to regain Kaylee s trust The new character, Sabine was straightforward and honest to a fault She s the type who knows what she wants and will do everything to get it And Tod I absolutely loved Tod Some think that the shift in his attitude came out of nowhere but I sort of I saw it coming in My Soul to Keep given how furious he was at Nash when he found out about Avari possessing Kaylee and Nash letting it happen I thought the author did an awesome job with clueing the readers about Tod s feelings without hammering us on the head with it Rachel Vincent definitely knows how to build anticipation and I m excited to read about what happens next.The book was not all teenage angst and drama either Of course, there s a mystery involving the Netherworld This part of the story felt a little weird I don t want to give out details but I don t think a small place would have so much death and chaos and yet people went their merry way Limbs were being crushed and authorities felt something was awry and yet they chucked it up to teen hormones What, not even a moment of silence for those who passed away It was simply unbelievable That being said, I still think My Soul to Steal is a very good read I can t wait to get my hands on the next book

    I LOVED this latest installment I should start off this review by admitting I m completely addicted to this series I checked the first one out of the library on a whim and by the end of chapter one I was hooked I ve since gone out and purchased my own copy I swear the pages of the book are laced with frost or some other Netherworld addictive chemical If that last sentence didn t make sense it can only be because you haven t read the books, and you should fix that immediately.At the end of t I LOVED this latest installment I should start off this review by admitting I m completely addicted to this series I checked the first one out of the library on a whim and by the end of chapter one I was hooked I ve since gone out and purchased my own copy I swear the pages of the book are laced with frost or some other Netherworld addictive chemical If that last sentence didn t make sense it can only be because you haven t read the books, and you should fix that immediately.At the end of the third book, My Soul to Keep, we were left in an emotional limbo with Kaylee having learned some devastating news about things a person close to her let be done to her So I knew going in this book was going to be full of emotional angst and boy was I right.My Soul to Steal starts off a few weeks after the end of book three Kaylee and Nash s relationship is still in limbo and Kaylee is unsure where things between them are going In this book Kaylee is stronger and at the same timevulnerable than ever Within the past year, not only did she learn who she is and about her heritage, but she has had to deal with some level of betrayal by almost everyone in her life This could have made her jaded or cynical but instead it made hercautious, made her think before she leaps and helped her learn to rely on herself But she isn t too proud to ask for help She listens to others input, allows for the fact she could be wrong and then forms her own conclusions, even if no one else agrees with her She has really grown since we met her in book one and I was proud of her.The Nash we see in this book isn t the one we met in book one or the one we last saw at the end of book three Yay for that The Nash we see here is a little broken He s doing his best to find his footing and reclaim his life after the fall out of book three My heart went out to him, but I was still hesitant to totally trust him Despite my hesitancy, the whole time I was crossing my fingers that he and Kaylee would be able to find their way back to each other Above all I was hoping praying rooting that he d prove himself worthy of her.I really loved Tod in this book He s always been one of my favorite characters and this book was no different If anything I loved him even .We also get to learnabout Alec He was an interesting character and his back story was intriguing In this book we are introduced to Sabine, Nash s ex girlfriend who makes no secret of the fact she wants Nash back Sabine is Kaylee s worst nightmare literally When I read the blurb about this book and learned of Sabine s existence I was worried immediately, as I should have been She is a perfect foil for Kaylee Sabine was a really complex character and kudos to Rachel Vincent for bringing her to life I could go from being annoyed by Sabine, to hating her, to feeling a pang of sadness for her within a few sentences It was amazing.There is plenty of emotional drama in this book but there is evenfast paced well written plot I had high expectations for this book and Rachel Vincent didn t disappoint My Soul to Steal comes out this January It is a must read for anyone who enjoys this series And if you haven t read this series, you really should start I loved this book and can t wait for book number five
