Review: My Soul To Keep

Rachel Vincent
Releases June 1, 2010

Rachel will be releasing the third installment to her Soul Screamers Universe where Kaylee and Nash are thrown into more adventures in the Netherworld. Kaylee never goes looking for trouble but it always seems to find her.

Kaylee is a strong protagonist with a big heart. She feels responsible for anyone she comes across that may be in danger with the big bad nasties of the Netherworld, Nash follows where ever Kaylee goes because of love for her. Kaylee’s Dad, Uncle, Tod, and Nash just wish she would leave these things alone so she will not be put in dangerous situations that threaten her life but she would not be Kaylee if she did. Kaylee needs to protect the jocks at school even if she does not like them. Both boys are dating Emma and Sophie who she needs to save even if Sophie is the Ice Bitch she is still family.

I like how the problem that Kaylee comes across just keeps getting bigger and bigger through out the book. Jocks are getting high on Frost, an addictive drug from the Netherworld, is just the beginning of the story. I don’t even see how everything is involved until Kaylee does and I like the surprise element. Everything was connected and intertwined in such a complete way and very nicely done.

Kaylee and Nash’s relationship hits some bumps when Nash is lying, acting strange, using his Influence on her, and pushing her farther than she is ready to go. I think it is realistic for all Kaylee’s insecurities to come to light with Nash being the most popular boy and her just one of the normal girls in school. She is afraid that once Nash gets what he wants he will be gone, move on like his track record shows. I like how this story flows with the main plot line but this is what I really felt connected too. I think most girls can relate to have trust issues with guys they think are too good for them. I really felt the escalating anguish Kaylee felt through the story and the painful choices she has to make.


Kaylee has one addiction: her very hot, very popular boyfriend, Nash. A banshee like Kaylee, Nash understands her like no one else. Nothing can come between them.

Until something does.

Demon’s breath. No, not the toothpaste-challenged kind. The Netherworld kind. The kind that really can kill you. Somehow, the super-addictive substance has made its way to the human world. But how? Kaylee and Nash have to cut off the source and protect their friends—one of whom is already hooked.

And when the epidemic hits too close to home, Kaylee will have to risk everything to save those she loves.
