My Soul to Take is an excellent young adult title that’s everything a young adult book should be- well paced, interesting and original.
 
Rachel Vincent also penned the highly successful American Werecats series, starting with Stray. These books are definitely NOT young adult material, however.
 
 
Rachel Vincent’s pace immerses the reader immediately- we meet Kaylee when she is sneaking to a nightclub with a fake ID and trying very hard to look older and cooler than she is. Suddenly, her powers kick in and we realize Kaylee isn’t what she seems. Teenagers usually don’t get the urge to scream when someone’s going to die- but Kaylee’s throat burns to do so…
 
Later when the girl shows up dead, Kaylee starts to learn more about what she is. I cannot give away what *exactly* she is, suffice to say that it’s an old legend re-done in a very cool way.
 
The only qualm readers may have is with Kaylee herself. She is not dumb- just a wee bit panicky and irrational at times- but this is explained by the powers that she is slowly coming to terms with.
 
Readers can also look forward to the character of Kaylee evolving over time. In the following six books, Kaylee will go almost to hell and back and discover all the answers she is looking for- except for a few mysteries reserved for the last book.
 
Beware though- do not start reading this fantastic series unless you’re ready for the ups and downs of a seven-book series. And the tone of the series never changes- the bitchy girls stay evil and bitchy and the grey characters remain grey. Despite this there are some fantastic surprises along the way. And the last book is nowhere near ready but the buzz on the internet is fierce! ~ Sofia
