My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent

Released: December 21, 2010
Publisher: Harlequin
Rated: YA

Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can't just pretend nothing happened. But "complicated" doesn't even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.

See, Sabine isn't just an ordinary girl. She's a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people's fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives.

And Sabine isn't above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.

What I thought:

I don't know if I like this one as much as the other books. I liked the new aspect that Sabine brought, but I can't express how much I detest love triangles. I always feel bad for the one that doesn't get chosen. I liked Sabine so I had a hard time choosing who I thought should get Nash in the end and spent the book wondering if I would like it if he chose one over the other. I ended up liking the ending, but I can see that this storyline might not be over with this book.

Halfway through the first part of the book I was a little disappointed that the storyline seems to be pretty repetitive. It took a while for it to start to feel like a new story. I really like how Vincent writes and I'm hoping that the next book is something completely different and doesn't have the feeling like I've already read it.

My Rating:
