Publisher's Summary

No one wants to be this teacher's pet.

The entire school's talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. Everyone except Kaylee Cavanaugh. After all, Kaylee’s no ordinary high-school junior. She's a banshee - she screams when someone dies.

But the next scream might be for Kaylee. Yeah, it's a shock to her, too. So to distract herself, Kaylee's going to save every girl in school. Because that hot new teacher is really an incubus who feeds on the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend’s needy ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck - before he discovers they aren’t quite human, either.

But Kaylee's borrowed lifeline is nearing its end. And those who care about her will do anything to save her life. Anything.

Soul Screamers: The last thing you hear before you die.

Best of the series!

Everything from the previous books comes together to make this Soul Screamers novel the best one yet. From start to finish it's packed with eyebrow-raising action, heart-thumping emotion, and torturous suspense. If you've been following this series this is a must read!

The Best Soul Screamer Yet

"If I Die" is definitely a game changer in the Soul Screamer series, but what a ride! Normally I use my audio books on my commute to and from work, but this one had me so on the edge of my seat that I had to bring it inside and listen to the rest of the book, sitting at my computer desk! Rachel Vincent has such a solid handle on Kaylee and on the mythic world, which has never shone so well as in this installment, with its inclusion not just of bean sidhes and reapers but incubi and syphons. I particularly continue to love how the mythic elements exist in an otherwise completely realistic world of high-school, parents, best friends, and teen jobs. Her greatest strength remains the other characters we've come to know and love (or love to hate): Emma, Nash, Tod, Sabine, Alec, even Sophie. But this may be the first time (despite my love for all the books) that I've found myself talking to my radio as I drive: "No!" (there are a minimum of three amazing plot twists that drew that out), and "No no no," when I couldn't believe something was about to happen (at least twice), and even "Kiss her!" The plotting and pacing have gone past wonderful and hit stellar. I'm so relieved to know another installment (well, a novella) will be available in January 2012, and eagerly await it. Thank you, Rachel, for the excellent read!

Very exciting.

If I die by Rachel Vincent is one of the top books in the series. There are many twists and turns that are fantastic. The game changing ending will leave you speechless and wanting more.

"Emotional Ride & Amazing Story"

If you could sum up If I Die in three words, what would they be?

Worthy of buying!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tod - he is so selfless and so good but hardly let's anyone in on the good he does.

What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Amanda Ronconi is one of my favorite narrators. I will buy a book just because she is the narrator. She brings the right emotions to each character and even if you start somewhere in the middle you will always know who the character is when she narrates.
I bought the "nice girls" & "Naked Werewolf" series by Molly Harper based solely that she was narrating and I am so glad I did.

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

The entire book was a suspenseful and emotional ride. I HAD to finish this book in one setting.

Any additional comments?

I did not think there were any more original paranormal urban fantasy books out there but I was wrong. Start with the first book which gives the back story and then read the rest. They are all worth the credits.

A good story even as a stand-alone read.

Somehow????.. I didn’t realize that this book was #5 in series when I first bought it or until I was a good 20% in (not really sure how I missed that fun fact)… but to Ms. Vincent’s credit, there had been no blaring red flags giving me that “Did I miss something?” confused feeling. I had no trouble following the story and any prior characters or happenings referenced, were efficiently explained without over hashing them... just enough info that I easily got the gist of the situation.

IF I DIE is an entertaining installment in a series of young unique supernatural species, like Banshees, Syphons, Hell Demons, Incubus, Reapers, Maras, demonic drugs, love triangles, possessions, insane asylums and deadly hot math teachers…Ahh, just another day in High School. And to my own surprise, I found that I really loved the story and the characters and I might just be hooked on this series now.
Amanda Ronconi does a fine job narrating.

Pretty good, with reservations..

I have followed this series from the start, and this is probably the best book in the series so far. I had a few reasons I could not give it all five stars, which I will try to give without spoiling the storyline for those who have not read or listened to it yet.

The good: the story is well written. The story is definitely action packed and it WILL keep you on the edge of your seat because just mere pages into the story we find out that the main character, Kaylee's, name has appeared on the Reaper list as scheduled to die in one week. And even worse, her soul was already given an extension once before when her mother died for her so this means that this time, Kaylee has no second chance according to the Reaper rules, there is nothing that can be done, no exchange that can be worked out to save her. Kaylee decides to spend the possible last week of her life trying to save the girls in her school from the new math teacher, who is an incubus. He is impregnating human girls and humans will die while trying to carry an uncubus fetus to term. He has his sights set on Emma, Kaylee's best friend, so she teams up with Nash and Sabine to try to stop the Incubus. Throughout this Kaylee tries to cope with the knowledge that she is scheduled to die and neither her dad nor Tod can find a way to save her, so her lifeline is ticking away,or is it? And her love life changes in a major way. So why did I take a star off? For one, a certain character has been completely ruined throughout this series.It doesn't work well for me to see how this character began and how this character is behaving now. Verging on unredeemable,I don't know how the author will rehabilitate this character or if she wants to. And finally, the ending. It was action packed and good, but a bit of a cop out. One plot twist was awesome, and it's not what you think (someone who died a final death and was not supposed to be able to, comes back almost right away! And it's not Kaylee!) As for Kaylee....I'm not telling.

Tear-Jerker

Best book by far out of the series! Loved how I was able to be sucked into the main character and felt like I was Kaylee, I started sobbing at 4 different times of the story and I loved how it was written; Would recommend to anyone that loves a good story and that holds mythological creatures in the best regard! Will definitely keep this in my arsenal of books to read again!

Another great one

Whipping through this series like there's no tomorrow.
What if you knew you were going to die and when? That's what Kaylee is facing and within the short time she's given, she has everything coming at her; her relationship with Nash tumbling, her feelings for Todd, the secrets she's been keeping from her best friend Emma and her father trying to find a way to save her.
On top of that an incubus on the loose.
Have to say towards the end of the book, the events had me shouting WTH, but in the end, things turned out well.
Another great edition to the series. On to the next.
