    I am going to start this review with a story of my own …

    Back when I was in high school I was not popular but not picked on either. It was a pleasant experience overall. BUT (you know there was a but) I had a nemesis. We will call her M. I doubt she reads this, but I don’t want to call her out JUST in case. Anyway, M seemed to go out of her way to steal my boyfriend. Inviting him out, excluding me, showing up at his house, buying him gifts – all under the pretense that ‘they had been friends for years’ – uh huh, not falling for it. It stressed me out and pissed me off and I was glad when I graduated, went to college, said boyfriend and I broke up, and I moved on with my life. I hadn’t thought about M in a really long time.

    The reason I am telling you this story, is because this book threw me right back to the days where dealing with M was a daily occurrence. This whole book made me anxious and angry and upset. My chest felt tight and while I couldn’t put the book down I was dreading picking it up at the same time. Whoa. That’s never happened to me before.

    I would call that a win in my opinion. A book that takes you back to a time in life and makes you re-live all those same feelings is well written. Stressful as hell to read – but well written.

    As I have come to expect from Vincent the whole cast of characters were fleshed out and true to form. There are some character shifts which I am looking forward to seeing fleshed out in the next book or two.

    This book has presented me with a bit of a problem. While I loved all of the new elements introduced into the story, namely the world's most determined mara, it frustrated me so much that I almost had to throw the book against the wall a few times. Almost. I could never bring myself to put the book down because I just had to find out what happened next. Of course, I already knew, considering this is a reread, but everyone changes so much in this book that it feels like I'm finally rediscovering the characters that I knew from after If I Die.

    There are some new things that I was glad to see had slipped through the cracks the first time around. I began to notice the little details that I had missed before, like who is always there for Kaylee when she needs them, and who is definitely… not. Seemingly insignificant changes in the way certain people look at her – insignificant because they never really mattered until later on in the series. That doesn't mean that they weren't noticed, just that there were more important things going on at the moment, so they were overlooked.

    And there was so much going on in this book. Just because Kaylee was going through a bit of a rough patch in the romance department, doesn't mean that there won't be some world, or at least Texas, threatening dilemma for her to solve.

    Then there's Sabine. The first time through this book, I hated her for everything she was and everything she did to Kaylee. It just wasn't fair. She had been through so much already and she still felt responsible for saving the world with her own two hands. Now there's a Nightmare with abandonment issues determined to pry her maybe-boyfriend from her cold, dead hands. The universe was tragically out of balance.

    This time, I looked at it in a whole different way. After reading the short stories from Sabine's point of view, "Neiderwald" and "Fearless," I can completely understand why she's not willing to play fair. She never meant to hurt Kaylee – in fact, on many occasions she called her a friend – it's just that she was the one thing standing in the way of her life. And Nash was her life; he was everything she needed to keep going on, and once he left, she had nothing.

    It doesn't take a genius to see that Kaylee and Nash are no longer perfect for each other. Kaylee doesn't need Nash like Sabine does, at least not any more. Whether she likes it or not, he has changed, and the Nash that she fell in love with is no more.

    But she is not alone. To take the place of her fallen hero is another, one that I have been very glad to see. Whether or not he will stay is one question, but without a doubt, he will be causing quite a bit of trouble, which is why we love him oh so very much.

    Great Read...

    I picked up this book as soon as I finished my soul to keep. I wish I would've waited because MSTKeep was so heartbreaking that I don't think that it was fair to MSTSteal.
    If you've read my review for MSTKeep you know how absolutely shattered my heart was after reading that one. Not only was I a total mess but by the end of the book I was angry with one of the character's for what he did to another character.
    So in this fourth installment of the Soul Screamers series we get to know Tod a bit more which was a very good thing. I am now FIRMLY #TEAMTOD. We are also introduced to Sabine, Nash's ex-girlfriend. This of course leads to problems in an already shaky situation.
    I have to say that I honestly found this novel frustrating. I think that part of it was that I was still so angry from the MSTKeep that I couldn't stop seeing red in this one. I wanted Kaylee to be angrier with everything that happened. I wanted to her to give a certain someone a big slap into next week. However, I always feel that looking into the box is much easier to do than to be in the box and try to make decisions.
    Overall, I felt that this was a necessary way to go with the story and a great introduction to Sabine. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Rachel Vincent and especially her Soul Screamers Series.

    Review for Rachel's Book Reviews

    Soul Screamers
    By Rachel Vincent
    "She doesn't see dead people. 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.

    Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who'll be next."

    I have a lot to say about the series. I wish I could write my own synopsis, but I can't come up with anything better, one that says it all in less than 100 words. First, I'll go over the series negatives: cussing, explicit situations, drugs (well..of the supernatural variety.) I think that covers it.. Anyway, What I want to say about the series that's positive: It's a fantastically unique series. I love it. I think it's worth it's negatives, it has good plot, good contrast, I mean, it has those negatives, but it has some really amazing positives. I need to finish 'If I Die' but it's just a really original series. No ripped off plots here. I recommend it to all paranormal lovers (like me :)

    One Book At A Time Review

    I was curious were the story was going to go after what happened in My Soul To Keep. I really wasn't expecting to go on an emotional roller coaster. It's funny how some emotions you can really identify with no matter what your age might be.

    I really felt for Kaylee. She's trying so hard to deal with her own emotions and how she feels about Nash and his actions. I don't blame her one bit for wanting to sort through all that. I'm not sure I agree with the choice to stay away from Nash while he's coming off his addiction, but I understood why she did it. I really was wrapped up in the way Nash was making her feel during this entire book.

    Nash is your typical boy. I was surprised he really seemed to think that everything would be fine after 2 weeks. And I really hated that he could not understand why Kaylee did not like Sabine and his relationship. It seemed perfectly reasonable to me. And Sabine was a downright vicious character. I liked her, but she was extreme. Oddly enough I really disliked Todd during this story. I wonder if he didn't have an ulterior motive for saying what he did. I don't think he could truly believe that what he was saying was the best outcome for all.

    I find the greed demon (Avarti?) down right creepy. He seems hell bent on getting Kaylee in the netherworld to torture forever. I shudder at how he can take over anyone at will and uses them to toy with Kaylee. Hopefully they can all figure out how to take care of that little problem (which I betting is the ultimate goal of the series). I'm looking forward to the next one.
