My Soul to Save by Rachel Vincent

I cannot believe I actually have a post today. As you know I am currently gone right now, and don't even have an Internet connection. There will be a post tomorrow, but Saturday and Sunday are a little iffy right now! So bear with me!

Title: My Soul to Save

Author: Rachel Vincent

Rating: 4 stars

Review: Kaylee is dealing with some weird things in her life. When with her boyfriend, Nash, at a concert, a pop star drops dead. But Kaylee doesn't wail. And she's a bean sidhe, so it is her job to wail for souls when someone dies. This means the pop star didn't have a soul. And it turns out that many, many young stars have sold their souls for fame and greed. Now Kaylee isn't just going to let this sit, so she takes it upon herself to save a young starlet. But it isn't an easy job...

This was a great sequel to the first soul screamer book! It had all the things I was mainly looking for, an interesting plot, great characters, and some good romance. But something in this installment just fell a little flat.

It could have been that I found Nash, well a little too Nashy. I just don't like the way he acted in this installment. He was a little rude and didn't really care about other people and if they lost their souls. His thoughts mainly centered on himself and Kaylee. Because all he wants to do is...less than respectful in my opinion, at least.

But I still really liked Kaylee. At least she cares about people and actually wants to help them. She is a very good person. She deserves better than Nash...maybe Tod? Because Tod is really growing on me, and Nash is just dying away.

But to the plot! It was a very good idea but I felt that it was a little slow in the beginning, but otherwise I found it quite enjoyable.

I loved the unique, well it was unique to me, mythology about bean sidhes in this series. I learn something new about what Kaylee is capable of each time I read a new installment and this is an awesome thing! I loved how the Netherworld was described, and this drew me right in.

As I read on during the book I was so happy to be caught up in getting souls back to their respectful owners.

But even if I didn't like Kaylee, or the plot, I think I just might read this for the mythology!

I have not heard anything about 'bean sidhes.' I love learning about different mythology so I might have to take a look at this book.

I love this series, but I've only read My Soul to Take. I'm excited to read this one. Thanks for the review!
