My Soul to Keep is the third book in Soul Screamer series by Rachel Vincent. This book starts right away with the Netherworld drama. I try to strive for spoiler free reviews, while still expressing my feelings for a book. This book is making that most difficult. This book deals with a realistic situation in high school, but adds its own paranormal twist on top. At the beginning of the book, Kaylee and Nash are at a party at the house of one of Nash’s friends. When Doug Fuller crashes into Kaylee’s car, Kaylee quickly discovers that the deadly and dangerous substance Demon Breath has made it into her world.
To avoid spoilers, I am going to make this review of My Soul to Keep shorter than normal. I think this book is better than the first two in the series. It is far more action packed then the previous two. There are also twists and turns I did not see coming right away, which I love. I do have to say I want to see more of Tod in the next books; he is quickly becoming my favorite character in the series. I do plan to read the Soul Screamer Novella, Reaper just to learn more about Tod.
Even though the substance used in My Soul to Keep is a Netherworld substance that does not exist outside the world of these books, it is still uses to paint a fairly accurate depiction of addiction. This is probably why I liked this book so much, because of the addiction in this novel. While Rachel could have done a fluffier version of addiction, she did not. She portrayed the some of the darkness of addiction, and it gave the book a more realistic feel for me.
I loved this book, mostly because of the different emotion it brought up in me. I am looking forward to seeing where Kaylee, Nash, and Tod all go from here. The next installment in the Soul Screamer series is My Soul To Steal. I have to say if you enjoyed the first two Soul Screamer novels, you will enjoy My Soul To Keep.
