Review: My Soul to Steal

Title: My Soul to Steal
Series: Soul Screamers # 4
Genre: Young Adult-Fantasy
Author: Rachel Vincent
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: January 1, 2011
Book: Netgalley


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.


I have never been so pissed off while reading a book. Sometimes I get mad and then get over it. But after reading this book I was mad for days!!

Kaylee is struggling with trust. Trust that has been broken takes time to be repaired, but not in Nash's case. Instead his ex-girlfriend comes in to town making it all to easy for him to fall into another arms. Kaylee is pressured with all kinds of circumstances and is now fighting for a guy.

Let me just say I love Kaylee. She has always been such a great character that has grown immensely before my eyes. But in this book she is nothing but weak! Instead of putting her foot down and putting Nash in his place she always allows him to control her. She's already giving him a second chance and now he says he whats it this way and she does it! OMG! I was furious. Strong Kaylee is not so strong anymore.

And don't get me started on Sabine and Tod! They are both are on my crap list. It is one thing to go after something you want but boy did she fight dirty. And Tod asked Kaylee to do something that I never thought he asked. How could he??? Does everyone want Kaylee to give up everything for everyone? What about her? Does anyone care to ask what she wants? Kaylee has done nothing but rescue everyone no matter the circumstances. Isn't it time someone rescue her?

Ok, rant over.

This book is one hundred percent so freaking awesome! If you have not read this series, you most definitely should. This is one series that you could not put down. EVER! With every new book, Ms.Vincent writes it even more exciting, more intensity, and much more fun. She knows exactly how to bring her characters to life with zeal and strength. I love every minute of reading it. But be forewarned it will take you on one emotional roller coaster!

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. I need to read this series. Rachel Vincent has a way of writing characters that make you want to scream and piss you off to no end but yet you love to be that involved in their lives:) Nice review Savy, I'm going to be starting these over the holiday!

  2. Oh, I've been waiting to read the next book and this review just makes me want to have it NOW! I'm soooo curious to know what Tod asks Kay..god, I love her, she's always trying to help other people and she's very smart but weak? Mmm...poor girl!

  3. This review cracked me up. I adored Steal as well, couldn't put it down, but had a very different (but just as strong) reaction to it! I love that despite your anger, you loved it. Shows the great writing from Rachel I guess! Also, new follower :)

  4. Lol, when I was reading your rant I was convinced that you were going to give it a bad rating. So I was pretty surprised when I got to the end of the review and you said you loved it :)

    This is a series that I really hope to start sometime soon. Great review!

  5. I'll have to check out this series!

  6. Soul Screamers Book 4! Geez, where have I been? I have yet to read book 1. *hangs head*

    Wow Savy. Rant away, girl! I have to say, I love books that stir emotions in me so I probably would be a big fan of this one. Can't wait to start this series.

  7. Ok...I have to admit I have not read this series but I want to...and you are making me want to even more...
