The Good: Tod is becoming a much more compelling character. He seems to be growing into his role and becoming a better person, in sharp contrast to his brother. I really enjoyed the Demon's Breath/drug angle of the book and how that played out with involving the students at Kaylee's school.

The Bad: Kaylee conveniently forgets crucial details on a regular basis. It drags the books out, ridiculous when they're so short as it is. Any reader even halfway paying attention will notice completely remember these things and grow increasingly frustrated throughout the book. And then there's the whole boyfriend hiding things from her. Unforgivable things. Add that to the fact that the characters continue to hide everything possible from the adults in their lives for no good reason other than "parents just don't understand." Except, these parents would completely understand and help. Yet, let's just screw ourselves over and go completely unprepared into mortal danger time and again because parents are dumb or whatever. Maybe this thing resonates with teen readers, but as an adult with the ability to judge the parents on their previous reactions to situations in the series, these kids are coming off as complete idiots begging to be killed.

I am a huge fan of the Soul Screamers series and Rachel Vincent in general. I love her work and her books but this one I liked the least of any of her work I have ever read. The book was just ok, in my eyes. I was heart-broken and sad when I finished it and I hate ending books that way.

There are quite a few things going on in this book and quite a few things I want to talk about but can't without spoilers so...we are having SPOILERS...THERE ARE SPOILERS BELOW: Highlight the text with your mouse to read it.

I was SOOO pissed at Nash! OMG. He let that nasty demon Avari posses her over who knows how long, he guesstimated six time. There is NO way I would ever be able to take him back after everything he had done to me.

I just couldn't believe everything that happened when I was finished. I was so sad for Kaylee (one of my favorite teen characters) and I was so heart-broken for the entire world that Kaylee lives in. I fell even more in love with Nash's bro, his heart is in the right place and I really think he has grown so much as a well reaper and a character since the first book. I also love the comfort and familiarity that I have developed for this whole world, it is like slipping into a nice comfy robe and snuggling up. Perfect.

Anyway, I was so depressed with how this book ended but I will of course wait impatiently for the next book because I am emotionally invested in these characters and I need to know what happens. ( )

Diese und weitere Rezensionen findet ihr auf meinem Blog Anima Libri - Buchseele

Vincents erstes „Soul Screamers“-Buch „Mit ganzer Seele“ hat mich wirklich voll und ganz begeistert. Allein die Banshee-Thematik fand ich total toll und Vincents Schreibstil und ihre vielschichtigen Charaktere haben mich vollends in den Bann dieser Geschichte gezogen. Der zweite Band „Rette meine Seele“ konnte meinen Erwartungen dann allerdings leider nicht mehr standhalten. Glücklicherweise scheint sich Frau Vincent mit Band 3 dann aber wieder eingekriegt zu haben.

Als erstes ist mir dabei der Schreibstil positiv aufgefallen, der wieder so flüssig zu lesen ist, wie im ersten Band, und der unterliegende Humor, der es sehr angenehm macht das Buch zu lesen. Die ganze Sache wirkte einfach sehr viel atmosphärischer als noch im letzten Band. Das hat sich auch auf die Charaktere ausgewirkt, die mir wieder sehr viel sympathischer waren, als im vorangegangen Roman.

Und die Handlung! Nachdem ich mich durch den letzten Band durchkämpfen musste, weil sowohl Schreibstil als auch Handlung nicht mehr wirklich fesselnd waren, hat mich in diesem Band neben dem Schreibstil auch die Handlung sofort wieder in ihren Bann gezogen. Sie ist spannend, unvorhersehbar und die Überraschung am Ende… Ich kann den nächsten Band gar nicht erwarten!

Alles in allem ist dieses Buch wieder eine deutliche Weiterentwicklung im Vergleich zum zweiten Band, auch wenn die Geschichte meiner Meinung nach noch nicht wieder ganz auf dem Niveau des ersten Buchs war. Trotzdem, für alle, denen die Geschichte bislang gefallen hat, wird dieses Buch wohl kaum eine Enttäuschung sein. Ich bin jedenfalls bereits sehr gespannt auf den vierten Band! ( )

Check out my other listens at Eargasms Audiobook Reviews

Well, I guess it was too much to hope for no boyfriend drama in a YA! Nash was just a touch too good to be true. In after thought I should have know he was not that perfect cause he is best friends with jerks.

Kaylee is still awesome, if not a little slow on the uptake at times. She has a very faulty memory. Maybe readers who are not reading all the books as once will be surprised buy things but I was kinda like, duh!

Loads more Tod and Emma in this book!! Happy Dance to that!

This book takes the characters deep into some very serious issues. Things are on a whole other level emotionally.

Really great story again. Terrific characters and the events were perfectly paced. I was with it from start to end. The new twists were intriguing and I am eager to see what happens next in this series.

I listened to the audiobooks narrated by Amanda Ronconi, one of my absolute favorites!! She does a terrific job with all the voices keeping them distinct and consistent. She has a fun snarky tone that adds to the read. I am also a fan of her swift reads, she instills energy and drama into key moments in the narration. The girl gives good voice! I suggest picking them up if you are into audio. ( )

What do you say I keep this one short, huh? After all, this book is pretty short, and, on the whole, I don’t feel that different than I did about the first two books. Soul Screamers continues to be fun, but still fails to hit a level of darkness that will really enrapture me.

In My Soul to Keep, Kaylee, Nash and Tod get wrapped up in yet another mystery, once again not soliciting any help from the grownups. Every time, they all talk about it and they’re like “but our parents would get mad at us” and decide it will be better from everyone if the untrained teenagers handle everything. You guys are silly. Just like most relationship problems could be solved with communication, the Soul Screamers plot lines could have been much more easily resolved with some parental involvement. Oh wait, this is YA. I should be happy there are any supportive parents to be ignored, riht?

The mystery du jour concerns a drug trade for hellion’s breath, which, in case you don’t know from the second book, does terrible things to humans. Huffing demon’s breath results in a high, but is immediately addictive and leads to one of two futures: insanity or death. The message here is that drugs fuck up interpersonal relationships and have no good intermediate or long term affects. Common sense says not to go there. The message is not heavy-handed, though, which is extra good.

Mostly what I got out of this installment from an overarching plot perspective is the destruction of the Nash/Kaylee ship. Now, don’t start yelling spoilers, because this isn’t a canon thing. This is a Christina no longer remotely approving thing, regardless of where the series goes with it from here, at least this is what I say now. A talented author can be quite convincing, so I guess you’ll see how accurate I was as these reviews progress.

The world building continues to be really cool, complex, and filled with mythological awesomeness. I still maintain the potential here. However, Soul Screamers remains a largely fluffy series with occasional dark elements, when I would like to see those two things reversed.

Though this is my least favorite so far, I think, I’m still excited about continuing onwards, as the ratings get really good in the next few books. Will Vincent start doing sadistic things to her characters? One can only hope. ( )
