My Soul to Take (Soul Screamers Series #1)

My Soul to Take - Rachel Vincent For more reviews, see: Fantasy is More Fun This book was pretty good. I enjoyed leaving behind vampires, werewolves, witches, etc for a refreshing new supernatural character. Kaylee is an endearing teenage girl with a terrible ability: she can see when someone's about to die. What makes this ability particularly unfortunate is that all Kaylee can do is scream, very loud and without control. She can't talk; she can't warn anyone. All she can do is appear absolutely crazy. I enjoyed getting to know her and watching her try to figure what's going on with her, all while dealing with her bratty cousin (who she deals with). Oh, and did I mention that young girls are dropping dead like flies? The plot was also different, but unfortunately large parts of it were pretty predictable. Vincent did surprise me a couple of times, making the book a pleasant, but not gripping read. I'm going to continue with the series, in hopes that this book suffers from "first book syndrome" and the later books will be a lot more exciting and at least a little less predictable. The characters are endearing, and I'm interested to see them develop in later books as well. Overall I'd recommend it for a refreshing young adult read. About the audiobook narration: This was my first book to listen to that was narrated by Amanda Ronconi. She is an incredible reader and really brings the different characters personalities to life. While I think I would have felt about the same about the book's negative points had I read it, my love for the characters probably was equal parts writing and narration. I highly recommend picking up this book on audio!
