3.0 out of 5 stars Becomes less interesting as story progresses Dec 10 2009
By Sam TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent is the first book in the Soul Screamers series aimed for older teens. I was disappointed that the relationship between the protagonist, Kaylee, and Nash, developed too fast. Thus by page sixty, the two were already kissing. There were numerous parts in between that I lost interest in what I was reading and was hoping that those parts would quickly finish.

This novel has mystery and romance. The concept of the story was interesting, with banshees (bean sidhes), grim reapers, and other creatures that inhabit the underworld. The abilities of banshees and grim reapers were the most fascinating to read about.

Overall, it was a quick read, but I'm not sure if I want to continue reading the series. After reading a few teen novels, I am seeing repetition in the stories, and feel like I am looking for more from a story. There isn't even a slight hint of a moral to this story, like many others in this genre; they are written merely for the purpose of entertaining. Maybe the many novels of this category will please younger readers, but not those that are looking for something satisfying to read.

Kaylee Cavanaugh lives with her Uncle Brendon, Aunt Val, and cousin, Sophie. Her mother died when she was three, and her father resides in Ireland. Sometimes Kaylee faces problems if she encounters someone that is supposed to die soon while she is in a large crowd. Once that person is spotted, Kaylee can no longer speak. She has an urge to scream that doesn't die until the person dies or she gets away from them. Unfortunately, Kaylee doesn't know why she has this urge and who she truly is.

The story starts with Kaylee and her friend, Emma Marshall, sneaking into a club called Taboo because Emma's sister, Traci, works there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too July 1 2009
Format:Paperback
Kaylee Cavanaugh is not your average teenage girl.

There's something a bit off about her.

Whenever she's near someone who is about to die, she can sense it. When that happens, she feels the urge to scream loud enough for everyone to hear.

Kaylee wants to be a normal girl. Being a normal girl to Kaylee is going out on a date with her crush, Nash, who also happens to be the hottest guy in school. But going out on that date has to take a backseat when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason. Nash doesn't seem as in the dark as Kaylee feels, and she needs to know why.

Who will die next? Only Kaylee knows for sure.

Wonderfully written characters that are portrayed as typical teenagers that possess extraordinary powers. A fast-paced,engrossing read that you won't want to put down. A story that I wouldn't mind sharing with my preteen, although she'll have to wait until I am done.

MY SOUL TO TAKE is a wonderful beginning to a series that fans of Ms. Vincent's adult SHIFTERS series will definitely be rushing out to buy. A book like this is one of the reasons that I add authors to my auto-buy list. This is definitely a keeper.

4.0 out of 5 stars My head was spinning but in a good way! Dec 4 2010
Format:Paperback
High praise for the Soul Screamers Series! Well, for book one of it, the rest is still to be determined. Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers world is so detailed yet graspable. The story progresses at a perfect pace right on par with the characters' development. I was absorbed from the very beginning and only became more so as I dove into this unique and captivating story. This book was definitely worthy of my attention!

I'm always a little hesitant whenever I begin reading a YA novel. The characters and story can sometimes be a little flighty. In this case though I was pleasantly surprised by how believable their personalities were. Then again, how could the author of the killer Shifters Series write a bad book? I should have had a little more "Faythe"! Ha! Fellow fans will get my corny reference, the rest of you; look it up!

I'm a sucker for Irish mythology so this book drew in me even more after I discovered what Kayley is. It's hard to describe the world that Vincent builds in this novel without giving away too many spoilers so I'll refrain. But for anyone who's ever wondered about what happens after we die, the possibilities explored in this book are pretty cool. Then there's the added bonus of it having a teenager who's faced with all of this life altering new information and getting to see how she deals. I think Kaylee did quite well considering!

All of this crazy Netherworld stuff doesn't stop Kaylee and Nash from falling in love. I really enjoyed witnessing the evolution of their relationship. Young love! It brought back so many memories of how my problems at their age were so trivial but at the time seemed like a matter of life or death. How I would love to go back to those days! Kaylee and Nash's relationship is so new and they're so innocent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome YA novel Sept. 26 2009
By Tynga's Reviews TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Kaylee seems to be the girl next door, goes to school, works at the cine to pay her license. The only stand-out fact is that she lives with her aunt, uncle and cousin because her mom died and her dad pretty much abandoned her.
Well not all girls next door are totally normal....

Kaylee sometimes see people surrounded by weird shadows and is compelled to scream her lungs out but has no idea why. People say she's having panic attacks, but Kaylee knows she's not crazy!

Nash (cutest guy at school) and Emma (Kaylee's best friends) both believe she can predict people's death after some hard-to-ignore proofs, but question is how? and why?

My Soul To Take is an awesome read with a very original subject. Kaylee is a bean sidhe, also known in lores as Banshee. There is much ground to explore with this fantasy creature and even though we discover some very interesting details in My Soul To Take there is more to come in the second book, My Soul To Save.

Vincent is true to herself with very well written story, real characters and a great plot! I am totally in love with Nash, and there is a lot about him to discover! The end of the novel is like a surprise box, I didn't see anything coming, it was really awesome and I can't wait to read the second book.

Fantastic, mysterious and original, My Soul To Take is definitely a book to buy!
