I love to read... love to listen while I walk my dog, Sally Jo.
The narrator is excellent! She really worked to keep the characters believable and interesting. I enjoy stories that are different and about "real" people. I do not hesitate to recommend this series of books -- they are fun, great to listen to, and easy to get involved with. I look forward to the next book.
This book was amazing. I listened to it while I was at work, and I actually found myself dreading breaks and lunch, and even going home simply for the excuse of listening to this book. I try to listen to books only while I'm at work so I have something to keep me sane, but I found it very hard to not just bring out my Zune at home and start listening to it once I walked in the door. I didn't regret getting this book even for a second.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
With so much supernatural books out in the market today, there is not a lot of new ideas. This book was great in that it used a new idea for the story. This is the first book that I have read about banshees as the main characters. Although it is a teen book, still worth the read.
My Soul to Take really needs a prologue to explain the back story so that this book makes sense. The first book, My Soul to Lose, really doesn't stand on it's own and would be better as a prologue in My Soul to Take.
I enjoyed meeting the characters in this story. The main character discovers new things about herself and her world causing her to get more comfortable with herself. She learns that some of things that she thought were weaknesses were actually abilities that she had not mastered yet.
She becomes more sure of herself at the end. The support characters help the balance out the story and reflect the world around her.
I have to listen to this again, because my 10 year old son was mad at me for finishing it without him! It was really good, I enjoyed the mystery, the little twists, the characters, all of it! As soon as I can, I plan to buy the next audio book in the series.
As for the narration: I don't know if it's because I was used to her after the prequel, or what, but I very much enjoyed it more than I did with said prequel. Clear enunciation and a pleasant voice made this all work just right with the story! Very well done.

Great except for Tod. His voice is specifically described as "smooth," yet the narrator gives him a croaky, just-woke- up voice. He's my favorite character, but he has the worst voice.
