Synopsis: She doesn't see dead people. She senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally.

Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who'll be next.

Review: 4 Stars - My Soul to Take, the first book in Soul Screamers series by author Rachel Vincent introduces us to her fantastically written characters and world of Banshees. 

Kaylee is pretty much your average teen girl. Or so she wishes. Knowing when someone near you is about to die and feeling the need to scream is anything but “average”. She believes there’s something wrong with her and her aunt and uncle who she lives with aren’t any help explaining what might be wrong with her.  I believe that Kaylee is a brilliant character with a huge heart. She wants to use her knowledge to her advantage and try to save people from dying.

Nash is a classmate of Kaylees and is drawn to her. It’s Nash to uncover what’s wrong with Kaylee and who she really is. He’s honest with her when no one else would be. He takes the time to explain things to her and goes out of his way to help her through a rough time in her life. It’s hard enough being a teen, but when you’re a teen and a Banshee, life couldn’t get weirder.

The two together are a great pair, but with the introduction of a certain Reaper named Tod, it makes you wonder what might happen next. I’m a Tod girl right from the start and the scenes with him pretty much made a great book so much better. 

All in all, Vincent’s writing and characters are fun and entertaining. It was just the book I was looking for. I thoroughly enjoyed the series and can’t wait to see what happens next. And, bring on more Tod please. I highly recommend this series to any and all fans of paranormal young adult. I have no idea what took me so long to start this series, but as always, it’s better late than never. Don’t pass these books by. Enjoy.
