My Soul to Keep by Rachel Vincent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Kaylee has one addiction: her very hot, very popular boyfriend, Nash. A banshee like Kaylee, Nash understands her like no one else. Nothing can come between them.
Until something does.
Demon breath. No, not the toothpaste-challenged kind. The Netherworld kind. The kind that really can kill you. Somehow the super-addictive substance has made its way to the human world. But how? Kaylee and Nash have to cut off the source and protect their friends—one of whom is already hooked.
And so is someone else…
This is one of the saddest books I've read in ages. The third installment of Vincent's Soul Screamers series is certainly not to be missed.
Kaylee is fantastic, she shows her true colours and doesn't back down from making the hardest decisions she had to make. Even when it comes to Nash.
Early on in the book we began to see changes in their love life, and a few little new quirks of Nash's that were just annoying, and a little upsetting. How he tries to manipulate Kaylee, how he's a little more forceful with her, he questions her more than ever, and puts her down emotionally. But she still stands by his side because she knows that underneath all of that, they need each other because of their Banshee heritage.
The new drug on the street is the shocking Demon's Breath that Kaylee and Nash encountered in the second book, and its starting to reach the kids from school so Kaylee and Nash start to find out who the supplier is and figure out how to cut off the supply, for good.
The side characters all play a major part in this one. Emma is brilliant and Tod comes into his own. But Kaylee and Nash have an enormous problem and by the end Kaylee knows underneath that her small mishap when they were in the Netherworld (in Book 2)is the reason why everything is falling apart.
I literally couldn't put this one down, and a tide of different emotions swept through me as I read this, and the end is so sad (sorry for the spoiler!)
I'm giving this one 5 stars because the story is epic, and the message is brave, intelligent and heart-warming.
Here's the book trailer! Enjoy!
