Review Day: My Soul to Steal (Soul Screamers #4)

As most of you know, I've been making my way through the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent and I finished book 4, My Soul to Steal, last week.

Plot: So we begin again with Kaylee and Nash still trying to work out their relationship. Kaylee is still angry about all the lies Nash told her in previous books, and hasn't gotten to the point where she can forgive him yet. But of course, things simply must get more complicated, right? Nash's ex-girlfriend, Sabine, transfers to their school. Not only is this an old flame for Nash, but she's also a mara. Basically that means she's the personification of a nightmare, and can get into people's heads and make them dream terrible things. Sabine wants Nash back, and will do anything--including rummaging around in Kaylee's head and exploiting her fears--to get him back. Meanwhile, teachers at their school start dropping dead--in their sleep, no less--and Kaylee's convinced Sabine has something to do with it. Who said high school was easy?

Characters: One thing I love about Rachel Vincent is how well she writes high schoolers. She gets that guys and gals think completely differently and does a good job incorporating that into her stories. Sabine was also a very believable, well-rounded new character.

Ending: I thought the end was a good one. It shored up what happened in this installment reasonably well, but left a few things open for the (obviously) next installments.

As with previous books I'm really enjoying the series and have no complaints. If you love a great YA read, and this is your genre, you'd love these! There is a lot of teenaged angst and relationship-type problems in them, so if that annoys you, they may not be for you. Keep in mind that I'm VERY picky about both YA and paranormal, and I'm really liking them. So, even if it's not your genre but you'd like to try it out, this series would be a great place to start!

Has anyone else read this series?
