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.
Rachel Vincent does it again guys. I enjoyed this addition to the Soul Screamers series just as much as I did the 1st book and the short novella preceding the 1st novel.
Totally loved the pacing of the novel. Once the book starts so does the plot. There are no chapter fillers or any nonsense. Every page is important.
My Soul to Save is a bit darker and more of the book is set in the creepy Netherworld, a world hidden away from ours by a veil that is only crossable by some supernatural beings, which is populated by monsters and deformed creatures that are dangerous in more ways than imaginable. In the Netherworld everything thing and everyone wants to eat you, definitely not a place for a weekend getaway. I felt like this book really started to develop the soul screamers world and expand on a set of characters that I have already started to love.
In My Soul to Save Tod the Grim Reaper makes a bigger appearance, which is great because he really is one of the best characters in the series. As a Grim Reaper Tod holds the importance of souls above all else and he takes it really hard when a friend of his (in his previous earth-bound life) sells her soul, without realising what that means and what it means for her future. Along with Kaylee and Nash they set out to help Tod, to help his friend, despite the overwhelming odds of dealing with demons, monsters, the Netherworld and one very over-protective parent.
My Soul to Save was well written, unexpected and filled with a wonderful and interesting cast of characters that are anything but forgettable.
“You two are cracked,” Tod snapped.
My smile widened. “Says the undead man in love with the soulless pop star.”
“Chocolate says “I’m sorry” so much better than words.”
