Publisher's Summary

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.

Prepare for Emotional Torture

Yes, I loved the other three books, but the first half of this one is a heavy dose of emotional torture. The angst, jealousy, and fear is palpable and painful. I was ready to give up this series. Nash's xgirlfriend is a nightmare, literally, and I could have dealt with that if he wasn't such a royal pain in the butt as well. Even Todd is spouting crap disguised as wisdom. In the second half, the author lets us in on her clever little twist involving the Hellion of Envy, but by that time I almost didn't care anymore if Kaylee kept Nash or gave him up to Sabine and since that issue was never really resolved we have to wait for the next book.

My Soul to Steal

I've really enjoyed this series so far. This one is, however, my least favorite. Kaylee absolutely drove me crazy throughout nearly the whole thing. She wants Nash back and wants to give him her trust again but refuses to give him the chance to earn it. She's understandably hurt and feels betrayed, but she also understands that the things Nash did, and let happen to her, happened because he wasn't himself at the time. If she truly wanted him back, you'd think she would want to be there for him and help him through the healing process and give him a chance to prove his sincerity. I wouldn't have blamed Nash in the least if he had dropped Kaylee like hot potato for Sabine, who is supportive and non-judgmental in his time of need, rather than Kaylee who, at every turn, is pointing out his faults and reminding him of how badly he screwed up.

Yes, Sabine is a creepy character. But deep down, she's insecure and hurting. Because of who she is, she has a difficult time making friends. Nash is the only one who has ever given her a chance and loved her despite what she is. I really can't blame her for trying to get him back. Because of what she is, she has to try so hard for every nugget of friendship and love she gets.

Tod and Harmony remain my favorite characters. I love Tod's no nonsense, no sugar-coating way of approaching things and Harmony's way of treating everyone with the same love, respect and acceptance as everyone else no matter what they were born as.

All in all, this book continues the story nicely and I'm looking forward to October to find out what happens next and who ends up with who.

Paranormal world - Real world issues

Where does My Soul to Steal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is certainly in my top 5 series

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tod and Sabine

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

Amanda Ronconi brings so much believability into all the characters, to be honest, she is the reason I bought the first book. I made sure she was the narrator for the rest of the books and then got the rest immediately after.

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

Absolutely

Any additional comments?

I will buy any book which Amanda Ronconi narrates. I have already listened to "nice girls" & "naked werewolf" series by Molly Harper because Amanda narrates them and she has not disappointed yet.

slump

I really felt like this missed the five star mark. I actually got a little bored of all the Nether world description. Being a harlequin novel I kind of was wanting more of the romance. Waiting for Kaylee and Todd to get together. I'm sure it's going to happen.

On edge the whole time!

I whipped through this book in less than a day! It had me sad, angry, laughing... every emotion in the book! I cannot wait for the next book!

This one kept me up at night with stress

Sabine is so unlikeable, the thought of having her in my life even for one more second would have had me dumping Nash like a hot potatoe and begging my father to go back to his job at the pub in Ireland. And in real life, the thought of having more Sabine makes me wonder if I would want to read the next book.

Loved it!!

Wonderful follow-up to the other books! I know these are geared more towards teens, but I have to admit, I listened to them first... and purchased the books in paperback for my teens for Christmas! Rachel Vincent has quickly become one of my favorite authors!

Not my favorite, but...

I've been enjoying this series so far, but have to say that this book was my least favorite so far.
I get they're teenagers and where teen relationships are, drama tends to follow...or, well, it's in all age relationships, but I think teen books stir the big pot a bit more.
I felt no sympathy for Sabine and found her character annoying, but maybe that's what the author wanted, a character to stir up a big boiling pot of bitchatude and by-golly this gal delivered a feast of it.
I felt this book was more on the catfight over Nash than the story and I'm liking Nash's character less and less in each book.
I'm a bit disappointed that Todd's character wasn't in this book as much, but hopefully he will be in the next book.
As for Kaylee, I'm hoping she makes up her mind if she actually wants Nash or not.
I liked the conversation Todd had with Kaylee about her and Nash not being right for each other and his view on life and choices from his side. Life is short. I really am beginning to like Todd's character more and more.
Do have to say without spoiling anything, some part of me is predicting outcomes of characters, but could just be me.
Off to the next book in the series.

Stressed

I love this series and will , of course continue to read the sequels but this one is torture! The Kaylee and Nash problems have me so stressed. I’m lowkey hoping her and Todd get together, I guess we will see. They should make this series into a television show.
