Series: Soul Screamers #2
Author: Rachel Vincent
Read via: Purchased
When Kaylee Cavanaugh screams, someone dies.
So when teen pop star Eden croaks onstage and Kaylee doesn’t wail, she knows something is dead wrong. She can’t cry for someone who has no soul.
The last thing Kaylee needs right now is to be skipping school, breaking her dad’s ironclad curfew and putting her too-hot-to-be-real boyfriend’s loyalty to the test. But starry-eyed teens are trading their souls: a flickering lifetime of fame and fortune in exchange for eternity in the Netherworld—a consequence they can’t possibly understand.
Kaylee can’t let that happen, even if trying to save their souls means putting her own at risk….
I read this originally a few years ago, and I enjoyed it. However, this was the last book in the series I read, although I cannot figure out why. I enjoyed this just as much as the first book. Rachel Vincent has created a fun, entertaining, and unique series that stands apart from many of the stereotypical vampire and werewolf books out there.
Kaylee remains a fantastic heroine, if for no other reason than the fact that she is willing to sacrifice everything to save someone else. She is such a selfless character, but at the same time she does not come across as someone who is annoyingly good. I will mention briefly that Nash remains an adorable, ideal boyfriend, but otherwise I do not have a whole lot to say about him. Tod, however, I adore. There are so many issues with his role, and his morality can be questionable, but he is so intriguing. Addison, as I stated in my original review of this, is best addition to this book. At first she just seemed like an annoying drama queen, but her character expanded & changed perfectly. All of which lead up to my favorite scene of the book, which I can’t discuss because it’d be too spoiler-y. Let’s just say it was my favorite moment from either of the books.
Once again this book is an action-packed, nonstop read. The danger reaches even higher heights than the first book. This is one book that you will want to read in one sitting. We get to know a lot more about the bean sidhes and the world of the Nether, which is unique and adds a whole new layer to the story. The only thing I wish there had been more of was Kaylee’s best friend, Emma. Her brief scenes in this book were awesome, but I would love to see even more of her.
All in all, I think this book built nicely upon the characters and setting set forth in the first book. This is an engaging, adventurous series, and I cannot wait to see where it heads next. I am so glad I participated in Rachel’s Soul Screamer Challenge, and I would highly recommend that you join in if you enjoy a good paranormal romance with a perfect cast of characters.
Overall: 3.5 out of 5
