MY SOUL TO SAVE
While Vincent's series opener, My Soul to Take, had an interesting concept, the second Soul Screamers offering doesn't live up to its potential. It's pretty predictable, repetitive, a little overly descriptive and the romance is a bit awkward. Readers may wonder if Vincent felt she had to "dumb it down"
for the YA audience. Overall, though,
it's an all-right read.
Kaylee is a bean sidhe, which means she screams whenever someone dies. So when a teen pop star dies onstage, and Kaylee doesn't scream, she knows something is wrong. Soon, she learns teens are trading their souls for fame, without realizing the consequences. Kaylee can't let that happen, so she journeys into the Netherworld to save their destiny.
