Kaylee is a bean sidhe, a soul screamer who thinks she can save lives–until she discovers that some souls–like a talented pop star–are beyond saving because they’ve made a deal with the Netherworld.
My Soul To Save is a quirky read with an interesting concept, albeit one that never quite came together for me. I had difficulty grasping the worldview behind the notion of soul screamers and grim reapers (all attractive teens, of course), and so it was hard for me to connect with the story. I sometimes couldn’t tell whether a particular action was good or bad, and that moral ambiguity just didn’t sit well with me.
Then again, I probably spend more time than the average person contemplating theology, so if you’re not plagued by that particular blessing/curse, then you’ll probably really enjoy My Soul to Save. It’s a solid YA suspense thriller with all the elements you want. And you can enter to win one of three free copies by leaving a comment here!
