My Soul To Steal: Review

The fourth book of the Soul Screamers series.


Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can't just pretend nothing happened. But "complicated" doesn't even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.

See, Sabine isn't just an ordinary girl. She's a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people's fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives.

And Sabine isn't above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.


What do you want me to say? This book literally annoys me to death. 

Okay, not exactly the author's fault. Rachel Vincent is just trying to create a tension between Kaylee and Nash by using Sabine. But a love triangle, with TWO GIRLS fighting over A BOY?! Jeez, you are taking infuriated-and annoyed to a whole new level. 

First is Kaylee. Okay, I know that she's still into Nash even though he betrayed her TIMES before. But seriously, she's getting way too annoying in this book. I mean, openly fighting Sabine over Nash? That's not the smartest move. And truthfully, after the whole freaking display in My Soul To Keep and a glimpse of the synopsis in Before I Wake, I kind of wish somehow, Tod will either confess his love for Kaylee or other way around...

And then there's Sabine, which is a pain in not just Kaylee's ass, but my ass as well. Stop acting a needy freaking girlfriend/ex-girlfriend/friend/whatever, okay? Yeah, I know she's not that bad, and she tells truth to Kaylee even though she doesn't wanna hear it. But I will like her much more if she isn't acting like I-am-gonna-snatch-Nash-away-from-you-bitch to Kaylee. I really hate dramas of two girls fighting over a boy, especially when I'm not exactly fond of the boy.

And Nash. I don't even know what to say about him anymore. Somehow, I think Tod is better for Kaylee than Nash. Rachel successful ruin my image of Nash in My Soul To Keep, and she further destroys it in My Soul To Steal. Jeez, are you serious? If you can't handle two girls at a time then stop dating/ hanging out/ whatever the hell he's doing one of them. It's official. I can't stand Nash any longer. 

Sorry for my harsh lecture. But I have to get it out of my way.

Okay, besides the whole love triangle drama, this book is really awesome. I mean, everything weird Kaylee encountered points to Sabine. But she hasn't done anything. At least, not when she's conscious. And then there's Alec's secret. He's a half-hypno, and can be possessed by Avari. Bad enough. And Avari can somehow find his way to human world by possessing bodies around Kaylee. Really nice twist here. The most epic of all is Avari siding with a hellion of envy and make the school a battlefield of jealousy. Put aside the whole love triangle thing, this is a really good book because of all the twists. The words are really strong and emotional too, especially when it comes to Kaylee's nightmares. 

I will continue to read If I Die. Despite the really annoying Kaylee and Sabine and Nash in My Soul To Steal, the original plot of the story is cool. And it gets better every time. So yeah, I'm going to read If I Die. But I don't really wanna see any annoying love drama in the fifth book anymore. Give me a break.

Rating: 6.5/10
