Soul Screamers Vol. #2: My Soul to Keep • My Soul to Steal • Reaper

And the scream keeps coming…... Don't miss Volume Two of New York Times bestselling author Rachel Vincent's unique and fascinating Soul Screamers series.

Aside from the whole "I scream when someone is about to die" thing, Kaylee Cavanaugh's life has gotten better. She's getting to know her dad, doing okay in school and has a hot new boyfriend who understands her in every way. Until the hellion Avari starts tempting everyone with an exotic new drug—demon's breath….

Now on shaky ground with Nash Hudson, Kaylee is taking their relationship easy. But then Sabine—Nash's ex—storms into their lives. She's determined to get Nash back and there's nothing she won't do to remind him of what they had. And since Sabine has special abilities of her own, Kaylee is headed into a battle she's not sure she can win….

REAPER —First time in print!—
Though Tod Hudson died two years ago, thanks to his job as a Reaper he's never had to move on or let go of his family—no matter how much Nash would like him to! But few people know about how he came to accept the job of claiming souls….

I would just like to sum up the whole series into one review. The books in Volume 2 has been a great and perilous journey for Kaylee's life. Stressing as it is for Kaylee as for me too. The book has got the heart-pounding scenes that I almost wasn't ready for! Definitely worth the time reading!

The new characters introduced, Sabine and Alec, are interesting enough that they fit nicely in the story. Although Sabine's intro was pretty much messed up and got Kaylee jealous as I thought she lost her mind because her relationship with Nash wasn't stable and now Sabine suddenly appears in her disorganized life. I don't blame Sabine, it was just for me, Kaylee's POV in My Soul To Steal made me feel annoyed and irritated the way her reactions to Nash and Sabine's status. I almost wanted to skip every page about that as I truly find it irrelevant and Kaylee and Nash relationship getting repetitive. I sat back and hope more Tod would take the spotlight beside Kaylee (#TeamTod).

I believe at that point in My Soul to Keep, Kaylee and Nash hasn't been in good terms and in my opinion, the context getting out of hand when the story kicks off in My Soul to Steal as their trust has been broken one too many times, it's getting out of hand. Both of them are so unclear of their status and where they stand. I like Kaylee's stubbornness throughout and that makes her a strong-willed character.

Talk about Tod. Tod has it. It as in, the likeable, humorous character you'll find in the book. I'm truly grateful that Volume 2 includes his novella which feature his POV, how he ended a reaper in the first place. I like him better than Nash from the start, to be honest and I'm utterly not surprised he's finally stepping up in My Soul to Steal. A very well-developed character that I will just love forever.
