BBAW Bonus Book: My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent



My Soul to Take

By

Rachel Vincent



Back Cover: Something is wrong with Kaylee Cavanaugh. She doesn't see dead people, but....

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....

This year Harlequin launched Harlequin Teen and their first two releases are paranormal romances: "My Soul to Take" by Rachel Vincent and "Intertwined" by Gena Showalter. Ask and you shall receive, I discovered and Harlequin sent me courtesy copies of both books. They will be releasing
a third title "Elphame's Choice" by P.C. Cast September 29th.
I've never read anything by Rachel Vincent before and have to say she has earned a new fan.

"My Soul to Take" is excellent, with 3 dimensional characters and a story that grips you from the very beginning and keeps you reading. Kaylee can sense death, see shadows around people about to die. The urge to scream is undeniable and she can't speak, can't open her mouth, can't warn them. Otherwise the only thing to come out will be a scream and people will think she's crazy. Nash, the most popular guy in school, suddenly (or so it seems) takes an interest in her and has a way of calming her down. The story is full of surprising twists and turns and that's about all I can tell you without giving away spoilers. This is one of those ya novel that even adults will enjoy. I highly recommend it and look forward to "My Soul To Save" coming out in 2010.

Pages: 384
Released: July 28th, 2009
Publisher: Harlequin
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance

Other Thoughts:

Doug the SciFiGuy:
(Contains spoilers - proceed with caution)
"
Aside from the death’s, My Soul To Take is refreshingly free of physical violence. The battles fought here are mostly metaphysical but the threat of dying at any time is real and sustains a tremendous level of tension and drama. Friends and family are placed in jeopardy and beyond and several key scenes are heart-stopping."


Melissa of Melissa's Bookshelf:
"
Thankfully, though this is the first in a series, My Soul To Take is not a cliffhanger. We are simply left knowing that Kaylee is going to learn even more about herself in the next two books. My Soul To Save is the second book and is due out in January 2010 and I can't wait to read it! I'll definitely be checking into Vincent's other books to hold me over until then."
