A Spotlight Review - My Soul To Keep

My Soul to Keep
by Rachel Vincent

Written by Jessica @ Confessions of a Bookaholic
Rating: 5/5

This is officially my favorite book in the Soul Screamers series. It takes place a month after the last book and it is full of action and intense emotion. Rachel has a way of making Kaylee's experiences mirror the experiences of what may happen to a typical teen. The Netherworld has opened up the door to things Kaylee never knew were possible, and this book proves just that. I don't want to give too much away, but I will say that I am thrilled that the boyfriend (Nash) is not perfect. Every relationship has issues. This story brings back some characters that I didn't expect to see again. I was thrilled that the story focused more on Kaylee's school. I wanted the chance to get to know some new characters see how she deals with high school issues.

This book delves deeper into Kaylee's new home life as well. The development of each character was amazing. I really felt like I knew each of them better after this story. One of the biggest examples of that was with Tod. I think I mentioned in my mini-review of My Soul to Save that Tod was really brought onto a new level in that book. This book emphasizes that even more! Gotta love Tod :)

The smaller intimate parts of this book were my favorite. The interactions between each character were amazingly written. Each small detail carried such significance. As I was reading it I felt that each fight, each touch, or each look carried a lot more meaning than in most stories. I enjoyed those parts even more than the action.

Very emotional, very shocking, and sometimes very heartbreaking, this story shakes Kaylee's world. I'm very curious to see where the next book takes us. Fantastic book!
