Here is my Review of  My Soul To Take Soul Screamers #1










My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I'm a huge fan of the Shifters series, also By Rachel Vincent. When I heard she was venturing into YA novels I was intrigued. In this Novel we are introduced to Kaylee's world. She is living with her Aunt and Uncle and her cousin Sophie. Her father is in Ireland, working and her mother is deceased.



Kaylee navigates the typical High School landscape with an unusual problem: visions of darkness around her female classmates, and an overwhelming desire to scream. As Kaylee learns more about her urges she comes to realise she hold a unique precognitive power. She draws closer to the enigmatic Nash and his family and finds a comfort and kinship with them. The rash of death's Kaylee is sensing leads her to shocking discoveries about her self and her Families heritage.





I was intrigued by Rachel's desire to explore the world of Banshee's or bean sidhes. She transitions well to the YA formula while adding some twists of her own with plot and character. There were some slow parts in the middle but everything moved quickly in the last quarter of the book which reaches and excited and unexpected climax! highly recommended

I love Rachel's shifter series and would be so happy to receive Alpha. I can't wait to find out what happens and who Faythe ends up with. I am sure going to miss these cats after this book.
