    It was supposed to be a fun day, shopping at the mall with her best friend. Then the panic attack started and Kaylee Cavanaugh finds herself screaming, unable to stop. Her secret fears are exposed, and it's the worst day of her life....Until she wakes up in the psychiatric unit. She tries to convince everyone she's fine--despite the shadows she sees forming around another patient and the urge to scream which comes burbling up again and again.

    If you could sum up My Soul to Lose in three words, what would they be?

    More details, please...


    Any additional comments?

    This is a good warm-up for the next book in the series. I'm glad I listened to this one first. It leaves you interested in finding out more details and draws you in. Well worth the time.

    What did you love best about City of Bones: Harry Bosch Series, Book 8?

    It's a Michael Connelly Bosch book... Is there any other reason to give?


    Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Jay Fernandez’s performances?

    NO! Peter Jay Fernandez's reading of this book is awful! All of his characters sound the same. There should be some difference from Bosch and Edgar (both males, if unfamiliar with the series) & Brasher and Billets (both females). I'm only three hours into the story and I've been wishing for a different reader for most of this time.

    I'll finish the story because I want to know the twists and turns and the end, but this is very painful.


    Any additional comments?

    To the publishing company -please re-record this book with a different reader!!!

    Story
    (107)

    Just graduated from the police academy, Linda Wallander returns to Skane to join the police force, and she already shows all the hallmarks of her father - the maverick approach, the flaring temper. Before she even starts work she becomes embroiled in the case of her childhood friend, Anna, who has inexplicably disappeared.

    "Need a Swedish Female Narrator...."

    Would you try another book from Henning Mankell and/or Cassandra Campbell?

    Henning Mankell - yes; Cassandra Campbell with his books - no.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    After listening to the other Henning Mankell books about Kurt Wallendar, Ms. Campbell's reading for Linda Wallendar character and her pronunciations just seem too 'English,' too off. This is very distracting.

    After not really surviving her junior year (does "undead" count as survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the hellions causing all the trouble. She's going to find a way to turn the incarnations of Avarice, Envy, and Vanity against one another in order to protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever.

    What did you love best about With All My Soul?

    Rachel Vincent did a great job of finalizing the series. No cliffhangers leaving you wanting more. Tearjerker!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of With All My Soul?

    At the end.
    Not giving it away! Read it!!


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    Amanda did a great job thru out the series, it's hard to pick just one character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    See above...
    The last 2 hours.
