Synopsis: 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.

My Soul to Steal is the fourth novel of the Soul Screamers series and honestly, I wish this series would never end.

Rachel Vincent had managed to change my mind. Again. At the end of the last book I had some unpleasant feelings about one character and though he wasn't redeemed, she made me pause and think about that character again. I can't hate a character in her series (except hellions... How about I can't hate a part-human character?)

Take Sabine for instant. On one hand I'm with Kaylee and I want Sabine gone. On the other, Sabine has her issues and there are some redeeming qualities. You just have to take the time to look for them. Despite this frustrating aspect, My Soul to Steal was pretty good.

Kaylee wasn't in a very good spot in MSTS. She was very jealous and insecure but I understood it. She was impulsive at times which was fun to read of but when she thought things through later on, I cringed with her. I learned a ton about Kaylee in this book. Mostly her fears and I'm just as torn as she is about some decisions she'll need to make.

What can else can you expect in MSTS? Well, there is Tod and Nash, one of the hottest bros ever. They were both here and there with scenes that'll make you sigh and others that'll have you raging. There isn't a love triangle yet but I feel there may be one in the future... And judging by how delicious both boys are, it will be good. Wow. I actually want a love triangle!

Lastly again there was a big mess caused by hellions and not everything was revealed till the end. Both sides are getting warmed up and I have a feeling there's going to be a huge showdown. I can't wait to read it but I'm scared too. These hellions aren't exactly sunshine and rainbows. Rachel Vincent is doing a fabulous job piling the suspense.

What does this mean? I again read Rachel's book in one sitting. I am addicted. I can't wait for the next book and this is a good addition to a great, unique series which has it all. 4 stars,
