My Soul to Steal
by Rachel Vincent
Recovering from her boyfriend's betrayal of her body and soul, Kaylee is trying to cope with all of the changes in her life that she's had happen to her over the past year. She has discovered that she's a bean sidhe (banshee), she sings souls away when they die, her boyfriend is her kind and understands her the way no one else has, and that same boyfriend is recovering from a strong addiction that led him to completely destroy Kay's trust in him.
She could really use a break from all the drama.
Like that's going to happen.
Especially not when her boyfriend's ex comes to town and makes no secret that she's there for Nash. She wants him back and will do anything to get him. She's also a mara, a living nightmare. She can read a person's deepest fears and twist them into nightmares that can haunt souls.
When teachers start dropping dead and the student body turns against each other, Kay thinks she knows who to blame, even when no one else sees it.
Can Kaylee stop the death and destruction before it comes after her?
Final thoughts: This is a like a supernatural soap opera; it keeps going and going and yet I don't want it to end. It's feeling a little drawn out, though. I hope that Vincent isn't one of those authors who just keeps stringing her readers along. I also hope that Kay opens her eyes and sees Tod in a different light. Between the books from Kay's side and the one from Tod's, they totally belong together (even if he is undead). I'm looking forward to the next one coming out this year.
