From Booklist

In this fast-paced episode of the genre-blending Soul Screamers series, Kaylee learns that her “expiration” date is six days away. No sooner has she decided that she doesn’t want to die a virgin and sets about to seduce her boyfriend than his (dead) brother starts trying to push the couple apart. Vincent does a nice job of balancing all the various species of character—human, incubus, bean sidhe (banshee), reaper, hellion—with dollops of humor and enough backstory to keep readers new to the series engaged, without dousing the pace for those already in the know. Grades 9-12. --Francisca Goldsmith

For fans the Soul Screamers series, this book will either be everything you want...or everything you feared most. If I Die presents Kaylee with the biggest challenges she's ever faced in her life--she suspects that attractive new math teacher may not be everything he appears to be, she's still fighting her complicated feelings for her boyfriend Nash, and to top it off, she receives world-changing news that gives her only a matter of days to put everything right.

I really love Kaylee after this book. One of the things that surprised me is that she meets all of her problems with admirable maturity and sensitivity. There are a number of really difficult situations she has to resolve before time runs out, but instead of being self-pitying or railing against fate, she takes action to help the people around her, while remaining true to her emotional self; that's no small feat under the best of circumstances. I'm impressed by the author's frank handling of teen sexuality, which is very um, enthusiastically present in this book but written with exactly the right amount of excitement and humor and gravity. Most importantly, it's also included in the right context of Kaylee's life.

I'm also really happy with the way the author handled the tricky situation with Kaylee's relationship with her boyfriend. Nash was previously hooked on demon breath and his ex-girlfriend, the evil Sabine, complicated things further. Nash's behavior over the past couple of books has changed Kaylee's perception of him irrevocably, and the author does a terrific job of showing how agonizing and sad it is when feelings and priorities change with time.

Format: Paperback
Sixteen-year-old Kaylee Cavanaugh's life has been anything but normal since she found out six months before that she's a bean sidhe (or banshee): a mythical death herald with the ability to guide souls as they depart from their earthly bodies. Kaylee and her boyfriend Nash, a male bean sidhe, have battled countless demons, hellions and other supernatural creatures with the help of Tod, Nash's Grim Reaper brother, Harmony, Tod and Nash's bean sidhe mother, and Sabine, Nash's ex-girlfriend who is (literally) a living nightmare, or mara. Nothing has prepared Kaylee for what she is about to learn: Tod saw her name of the Reaper List, and she has only six days before her borrowed lifeline expires. To make matters worse (if that's possible), one of Kaylee's classmates winds up in the hospital after a terrible and tragic miscarriage. Kaylee and Sabine suspect that the school's hot new math teacher is the father of the child, and that Mr. Beck might actually be a succubus: a love demon fixated on fathering a son. Fearing that Mr. Beck has set his sights on her best friend, Emma, Kaylee must work with what little time she has to ensure that those she loves are safe even after her inevitable death.

The hugely popular Soul Screamers series continues in author Rachel Vincent's fifth installment, If I Die. Those who have not read the previous four books beware: it is necessary to move through this series sequentially in order to keep up with the various characters and plot references. Those who have made it through the other titles, however, will find the fifth novel to be a bit of a mixed bag. It is clear from the start that the author is intent upon changing things up in this novel, particularly where Kaylee's romantic attachments are concerned.

Format: Paperback
There is a reason that IF I DIE is the first book in the Soul Screamers series to break from the "My Soul to..." formula. Everything we thought we knew, everything we'd been hoping for, planning for, and partially dreading, changes. This is a series that has been building momentum with each book, breaking rules, breaking hearts (both the readers and the characters), and IF I DIE breaks more than all the previous books combined.

I've learned from the previous books in this series that the best way to start reading this book was to take all my expectations and chuck them out. The first chapter in IF I DIE is amazing and shocking. There isn't a single thing I didn't love about it from Vincent's delicate but strong handling of a very sensitive issue to dropping the biggest bomb of the series only twenty pages in. I can never predict what Rachel Vincent will do to her characters except that regardless of how unbelievable or even cruel it may seem on the outset, she'll write it in such a way that it feels inevitable by books end. IF I DIE is the best example of that to date.

Rachel Vincent writes incredibly strong and fully fleshed out characters. I never feel neutral about them. I either love them with a blazing passion, or despise them with a white hot anger. Better still are the characters who trick me into liking them before I can think to defend myself (no, not Sabine. I don't think I'll even warm up to her). In IF I DIE, the opposite happens. One of the characters I loved from book one slips into the despise camp so slowly that I still can't believe it happened.

Overall, take my advice and ditch your expectations. IF I DIE is nothing like what you think. Some characters shift into darkness and others emerge in delightful new ways.
