Back Cover Description:

If you live in the dark long enough, you begin to forget the light…

KORI DANIELS is a shadow-walker, able to travel instantly from one shadow to another. After weeks of confinement for betraying her boss, she’s ready to break free of the Tower syndicate for good. But Jake Tower has one final job for Kori, one chance to secure freedom for herself and her sister, Kenley, even if that means taking it from someone else…

The job? Recruit Ian Holt—or kill him.

Ian’s ability to manipulate the dark has drawn interest from every syndicate in the world, most notably an invitation from Jake Tower. Though he has no interest in organized crime, Ian accepts the invite, because he’s on a mission of his own. Ian has come to kill Tower’s top Binder: Kori’s little sister.

Amid the tangle of lies, an unexpected thread of truth connecting Ian and Kori comes to light. But with opposing goals, they’ll have to choose between love and liberty….

I love Rachel Vincent’s Soul Screamers Series and this looks like an exciting adult book!

Happy Reading!

Review: Re-Read of My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent

Click to add to Goodreads shelf

Published: December 21, 2010

Pages: 343

Edition: Paperback, US

4th in the Soul Screamers series

My Rating: 5/5 Stars – Loved It!

I am currently taking part in the Soul Screamers Reading Challenge hosted by Fiktshun.

Goodreads Description:

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.

A-freakin-mazing!

When I first read this book, I thought it was a major game changer for the series. The author took some big risks that definitely payed off. It was my favorite of the series (this was before IID, obviously).

*Slight spoilers ahead*

Kaylee and Nash’s relationship was so fragile in this book. You could feel the tension between them in their scenes together. If I was in Kaylee’s position, I would have distanced myself from Nash too. I just could not trust him after everything he did. Plus, the addition of Sabine didn’t help the matter at all.

Speaking of Sabine, she is something else! Sometimes I just wanted to slap her. But I also kind of respect her. She knows what she wants and is honest about it. She doesn’t BS you, which is nice. That doesn’t mean I still didn’t want to slap her at some points.

There were also Rachel Vincent’s signature Netherworld creatures, which I love. This book had more hellions, possessions, and maras. Doesn’t that sound like a recipe for awesomeness!?

Since this was my second time reading this, I noticed some nice Tod moments I didn’t pick out the first time around. I love Tod so much. If nothing else, read this series for Tod!

Overall: It’s Rachel Vincent people, need I say more?

Favorite Quotes (So many one liners, so little time)

“Can we save the live demo for later, please? Bean Sidhe in angst, here.”

“Just go away, Tod. I have enough to worry about without adding ‘taking stupid advice from a dead guy’ to the list.”
Tod blinked at me, and the smallest cobalt tremor of emotion rippled through his irises before he regained control. Before I could interpret what I’d seen. Then he sighed and blinked out of the room, pizza box and all.

“Whoever said it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved was full of crap.”
