Editorial Reviews

From the Author

My Soul To Lose is a free online novella--NOT a full length novel--intended to give readers a taste of my writing and a glimpse at the Soul Screamers world. It was written after I'd already completed the third full-length novel, but chronologically, it takes place before My Soul To Take, the first book in the series. You don't have to have read any of the rest of the series to understand this novella, nor do you have to read it first to understand the actual novels.

I got this as a free download for my Kindle and really enjoyed it.

I don't really want to say anything about the plot beyond what is stated in the blurb. Since this is a novella going beyond that would give too much away. I will underline that the main character is a teenager, so I'm assuming this is a start to a YA series. But that didn't detract from me enjoying it as an adult and I thought the teenagers were well-drawn. Not hokey or ridiculous like many teens are portrayed.

My Soul to Lose is really short and is billed as a prequel. So it really only gives a taste to whet your appetite and set the stage. Some people might find that brevity irritating, because no explanations for anything are given. You discover as the story goes along, but don't get any answers about What or Why. That will probably come later in the next release, which I am guessing will be a full length novel.

I found it all to be quite intriguing because of mysteriousness though. The story sucked me in right away and it's written so that you follow along as the events unfold with Kaylee. No background to speak of, no extraneous details, you're just right there with her as she has to deal with her situation, which includes ending up in the mental ward because she reports experiencing things that sound exactly like the symptoms of a schizophrenic.

It was great getting to read this as a free Kindle offer and it has done its job because I plan to buy the book when it is released.

My Soul To Lose would have gotten a better rating from me, if A. the book actually answered some of the general readers' questions, and B. Didn't make the attempt at sucking you in with a cliffhanger. The plot has great potential for the series, and the writing was well done in my opinion. Also, I thought the characters were realistic and down-to-earth. However, I don't think it's worth buying the other books in the series, and I kind of found it irritating that the author left you with no answer, and a cliffhanger that went "Will she ever find out what's happening to her? Find out in ___!" I do suggest reading it, since it's a kindle freebie, but as for the rest of the books in the series, your time is better spent checking them out from a library.

I wasn't sure at first if I was going to like this. I thought it might be too much of a teen book with the girls hanging out at the mall but it did get interesting pretty quick. Waking up in the psych ward, and why the main character was sent there is a little freaky. The way it ended left me curious to know more as if I had just read the first couple of chapters of a book then lost the book. I liked it in the end and I'd say it is worth a read.

I see a lot of complaints in other reviews that could be cleared up if they knew a bit more about this series. This is not a portion of a book, nor is it missing information. This book is a prequel. It is meant to be read after "My Soul to Take". It merely provides a little of the backstory that is alluded to in Book 1 of the story. Once you know what you're dealing with, I think it makes a lot more sense. I really enjoyed "My Soul to Take", and likewise enjoyed this as well.

It's a teaser. You're supposed to think it's a book, but it drops the story right when it gets interesting. It's supposed to lure you into buying the book. Fine,but be honest about it!

Silly me, I didn't realize that this was just a quick look into the background story before what will take place in the yet to be released My Soul To Take.

It was interesting and got me hooked, but then it was over. I still had questions about Kaylee and Lydia and I'm not sure if those questions will be answered in the next book, but I will probably purchase it and find out.

It's free, so nothing to lose, but just be aware that it is just a teaser to get you hooked into the series.

My Soul To Lose is a prequel novella designed as an introduction to Rachel Vincent’s Young Adult series, Soul Screamers. It is about Kaylee Cavanaugh, a high school student who sees shadow visions so frightening that they send her into debilitating panic attacks. When one of these attacks strike her in the local Sears store, Kaylee is restrained by security guards and rushed to the hospital. She awakens to find herself in the psychiatric ward. I don’t want to say too much here, because it is a short book and I don’t want to give too much away.

This novella does a nice job introducing readers to Kaylee and her strange condition. By leaving the ending somewhat open, she left me wanting to read more (which is kind of the whole point to a prequel). This is the first book I’ve read by Rachel Vincent, and I’m impressed. Her characters are real teenagers, not perfect little “Bella Swans.” Her characters were interesting, but relatable. Her descriptions of Kaylee’s panic attacks were terrifying and make the pulse race. This series might be a good one for those Twi-hards who are looking for something new to read.

Overall, I give My Soul To Lose…
Character Development – 3 bookmarks
Compelling Plot – 3 bookmarks (Lots of open-ended questions, but I’m sure those will be addressed in future installments.)
Age Appropriateness – 4 bookmarks (Light profanity, but if your kid can’t handle the word “shit” they have larger problems. The story might be a little bit scary for younger adolescents though.)

Dream cast (otherwise known as who I pictured while reading) – Kristen Stewart (Kaylee – Sorry, must have had Bella on the brain.)
