Title: My Soul to Lose
Author: Rachel Vincent
Series: Soul Screamers
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Summary: Kaylee Cavanaugh's trip to the mall ends with a brutal panic attack and a brain scrambling shriek she can't stop. Her secret fear is exposed. It's the worst day of her life.
Until she wakes up in the psychiatric unit.
But the hospital isn't a safe place for Kaylee, and getting out won't be easy because everyone thinks she's crazy. Everyone except Lydia, who has a secret of her own...
Thoughts: Kaylee is a high school student that has some pretty serious panic attacks. She's in the mall when she has the mother of all panic attacks, one that changes everything for her.
This is a prequel to the upcoming book My Soul To Take. A fast read, but a good lead in to the first book. I enjoyed it. I wasn't sure I'd read this series, but reading this novella definitely sparked my interest. I look forward to seeing what's going happen to Kaylee.
Score: 3 Stars

I agree with you - I wasn't sure if i wanted to start this one so soon with my over flowing TBR pile....
but when I read it - I really liked the build up and am looking forward to reading the actual first book...
Love your round up ....
Thanks for the review, I've download My Soul To Lose and plan on reading it soon. I think this was a good marketing idea by the publishers: reel in readers who might've otherwise skipped on this new series.ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed it-- ever since I saw the cover for the first book, I was dying to get my hands on a copy! Love the covers for this series, and on top of that, the story sounds really good.ReplyDelete
I downloaded my copy of this one the other day when you posted the link on here, but I haven't had to time to read it yet... And today I just *had* to go to B&N and make my TBR pile triple! Well, not quiet triple, but might as well! ;)
