Publisher's Summary

SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH KAYLEE CAVANAUGH

She doesn't see dead people, but...

She senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally.

Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who'll be next.

Listen to all of our Soul Screamers titles!

    "Not what I had expected after the prequel"
    Any additional comments?

    I listened to the prequel before reading this book and I had loved it. I thought it would be about "mutants", psychics, or perhaps angels & demons. So I didn't expect what this book was actually about. It was a little juvenile which if you are in high school then it should be a good read! However, I won't be continuing with the series. It was interesting enough that I enjoyed listening to it and I completed the book. The performance was pretty good. I did look forward to listening to the book so please don't consider this review as a negative one. I just enjoy a little more of a mature YA book. I listen to YA because I like PG books, just because I am an adult does not mean I want to listen to books that include rape or drug use. If you enjoy stories with characters in high school then this is a great book. Just won't be continuing the series but I enjoyed it while I listened.

    "suspense"

    This book is full of suspense and teenage angst. At times you will find yourself on edge waiting to see what happens, and others your thinking to yourself, seriously are you THANT dense?! Kaylee and Nash make a great couple, but I'm hoping in future books the author will bring into play that socially they are on opposite sides of the school and see what kind of drama that can stir up. I'm acutely interested to find out more about Todd as well, I think a love triangle would be a great twist in the future!
    Overall it's a really good book and I'm excited to read the next one.
    I was actually surprised that I enjoyed it as much as I did being that there are no vampires...

    Audible was having a sale and I found this book among the titles, my deciding factor was the narrator - I've listened to several of her books in the past and enjoyed them so I figured, why not give it a try.

    "Loved it!"

    This book was awesome, I started listening after having read the free prequel story My Soul to Lose which made me ask "what the hell is she?!" this story give the answer to this question but raises a whole lot more question that are explained through the book though the book ends on a "is it really over?" vibe which of course it isn't because there a more books! I'm so excited to continue this series and find out what else happens.

    "A total guilty pleasure!"

    I am far, far from being a teen, but I really enjoyed this first book of the series. Rachel Vincent is an excellent writer and the main character, as well as all the others, are nicely realized.
    One of my favorite genres is urban fantasy (I think that's the term for paranormal in a realistic setting), and this book accomplishes that very well. So well that I got involved in the lives of teenagers in high school, something that I could relate to like Buffy, the vampire killer.
    Amanda Ronconi does a superior job bringing the characters to life.
    I am on to the next one in the series.

    "Interesting Concept"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not sure yet. I am willing to try the second book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I did not see that coming.

    "Makes the time fly by"

    I listen to audiobooks when I workout and this one made the time fly by. I got so swept up in the story that I would be caught off guard when the time hit zero. Definitely happy I found this series.

    "Questions answered. Thanks much!"
    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Amanda is one of my favorite narrators. But her voice for Tod was painful. Painful and didn't even sound comfortable for her to do!


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

    When Kaylee and Nash work their magic together, that was pretty cool! I'm trying to picture this scream, it seems to take a while...crazy! Oh and a super cool ending too!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad I took advantage of freebie My Soul to Lose, because I probably wouldn't have gotten this book otherwise. The whole banshee thing never interested me, but I needed to know what was up with that screaming thing she did in My Soul to Lose. I'm glad I got this!

    "Family Secrets can a little out of hand."
    What did you love best about My Soul to Take?

    I loved the way the story slowly developed,
    and then came rushing at you with full force twist you never
    saw coming.


    What other book might you compare My Soul to Take to and why?

    The only thing close to this book that I have read would be the "House of Night" first book


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

    Amanda Roconi, did both the Kaylee and Nash really well but i liked nash


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Well, after the first few minutes i really couldn't quit listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I am really enjoying the rest of the series

    I mostly listen on my commute. I love Sci-fi, mystery thrillers, vampire love stories, great girlfriend stories and political thrillers.

    "Enjoyable quick read with a twist ending!"

    I loved this YA novel and look forward to the rest of the series. It was a good storyline, although it was predictable at times. The writer and narrator still kept me wanting to find out how it ends and who was behind it all.

    Kaylee saving her cousin, Sophie's, soul.


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

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I couldn't devote that much time to one sitting!

    Amanda Ronconi does such an excellent rendering of the different voices. I felt like I was listening to a cast of characters.
