My Soul To Lose by Rachel Vincent


My Soul To Lose by Rachel Vincent

Year Published: 2009
My Rating: 3 stars
80 pages

I got this book for free for my Kindle from Amazon, if you have a Kindle and interested in reading this book.. click here.

This is a intruductory/teaser to the Soul Screamers series.

Kaylee went on a trip to the mall with her best friend to get ready for homecoming.. but when a panic attack attacks her in the mall and she can't stop screaming .. it turns out to be the worst day of her life.. or is it!!
Then she wakes up in the pshyciatric ward.. trying to convice everyone that she is not insane.. but no one believes her except Lydia.. another patient in the ward with some weird abilities.

This is a prequel to the series, so it was short but was introductory to the story and the characters. So I tempeded to continue reading and look up book 1 "My Soul To Take" soon :)

Some Quotes I enjoyed from the book:

It was like one of Emma's video games, where the character wakes up in a strange room with no memory of how he got there. Except, in real life, there was no chest in the corner holding the key to my chains and survival advice written on parchment.

This is a quote from the teaser of the first book "My Soul To Take":

If Eastlake High School were the universe, I would be one of the moons circling Planet Emma, constantly hidden by her shadow, and glad to be there. Nash Hudson would be one of the stars: too bright to look at, too hot to touch, and at the center of his own solar system.

I have been so tempted to try this series, hopefully next year will be kind. Have a great week :)

I listened to this as an audiobook over the summer and actually got pulled into the story. It definitely comes across as a long prologue to the series and not so much as a stand alone story. I did read the full length novel that follows it, My Soul to Take, and did enjoy it. I hope you give it a try.

Ann Marie, I really hope so.. and when you do tell me how you like it :)

Christine, yes I agree it's like a long prologue.. I will try the next novel asap :) Glad you enjoyed it too!

It's actually supposed to be a prequel/teaser. A free introduction to the Soul Screamers world, the main character, and my writing. It was never supposed to be listed as a complete novel, and I'm as frustrated by that miscommunication as some of the readers seem to be. I've tried to have that noted on Amazon but have had no success so far. ;-(

Sadako, glad to know that :)

Rachel, I understand that now.. although it would be great if that was clear from before.. but nevertheless it was a good introductory and a great teaser.. although what happened was the opposite.. included with this book was a teaser of the next book :)that's where I got the quote..
Thanks for passing by and commenting.. hope you become a regular to my humble blog :D
