As with the first book I loved these characters. Kaylee and Nash's relationship develops a little, though not as much as I would have liked. She was still worried that the only reason Nash liked her was to try and get with her, which I didn't completely understand. After the things they've been to I'd like to think that she could trust him more. Tod was one of my favorite characters in this book, you get to see his softer side and it was fun watching him and Addy interact. But, I wish there had been more Emma in this book. I think she's a wonderful character and I didn't get to see as much of her as I would have liked. Her part in this book seemed just to be convenient to move the plot along. Also, I wish Vincent would have done a little more with Em dying and being brought back in the first book.
I liked Kaylee and her stubbornness and concern for others, but she was a little too hard on herself about the bad things that happened to other people. She seemed to think it was her responsibility to save these girls, even though it's not her fault that they died or chose to sell their souls. There are also a few places where some really dumb decisions made, and I couldn't completely understand why the characters made the choices they did. For example, Kaylee gets cut by this poisonous plant but she thinks she can wait to take care of it, even though it really hurts and she knows it can kill her. I think she was being a little too selfless. Also I thought Addy could have tried harder to keep her sister from signing that contract. Why didn't she show her her eyes?
There was some confusion with just what souls are in this book. Are we souls, or are we bodies with souls? When Addy sells her soul and has it replaced with Demon's Breath it seems that we are bodies and souls are just things we have, but the concept of the last book and a lot of this one is that souls are important and that they are who we are. This is why it's such a bad thing for Addy to die without one. I was just confused as to what the soul is in context of the story.
One thing I really liked about this book was the Netherworld. I was fascinated with it and the creatures that existed there. It was the one thing about this story that was really new and interesting. I felt like in the beginning of this book there was a lot of time spent re-capping what happened in the first book. I think this would have been good had I not read the first book, but since I had, and done so shortly before starting this one it got redundant for me. Also I felt like the ending was a little predictable, but I was glad that it wasn't a happy-go-lucky, everything is find kind of ending. And, I did really like the conversation between Kaylee and Tod. That last little piece where they speak at the graveyard left me wanting to read the third book.
Kaylee can tell when someone is about to die. While attending a concert with her boyfriend Nash, Kaylee realizes something is terribly wrong when teen pop star Eden suddenly collapses onstage and dies, but Kaylee had not foreseen it. What Kaylee and Nash discover about Eden and why Kaylee was unaware of her impending demise lead the two of them on a chilling race against time to defeat a monster nobody else knows exists.
Once again, I found Ms. Vincent's story fascinating and compelling. Although this book was darker than the previous 2 and the prequel, it was still so good that I am now eagerly awaiting Book 3's release in June, and already have it pre-ordered! I expect My Soul to Keep (Book 3) will be just as much fun to read as its predecessors!
And here I was thinking that it couldn't get any better than the first one. Silly me.
Kaylee and the gang are off on a whole new adventure, this time to save the souls of a fame ridden pop star who forgot to read the fine print when she was promised the world. And she also happens to have an interesting connection with our friend Tod.
Being a re-reader, I can't help but try to give Tod the benefit of the doubt, but with what he's already shown here, I wouldn't exactly give him a golden star for ethics. Both of the Hudson brothers are fiercely loyal, refusing to give up on the ones they love, even when it's too late. Even though this loyalty is something to be admired, at times they will take it too far and put others in danger because of their own plans.
Even Kaylee, who has absolutely no obligation to risk life and limb for people she's never met before does so anyway, simply because she has a heart of gold. She feels like she has to make up for the damage her aunt caused, especially once she learns the truth about what happens to people who die without their soul. The Page sisters have done nothing to deserve her help, yet she still gives it, even at times when their ignorance causes them to be ungrateful to the only person standing between them and an eternity of torture.
And I can't leave without mentioning our two new reaper friends: Libby, who has seen the millenniums stretch across the Earth, and Levi, Tod's adorable, manically terrifying boss. While he isn't quite as bad, they both seem to be unused to interacting politely with others. Even though to them humans have not become more than measly specks of life and bean sidhes only a royal pain their rear end, they both have a surprising affinity for Kaylee. They respect her quick thinking and ingenious attitude in solving problems that most people would balk at. She surprises everybody with her endless determination, even when staring death in the face. She may not have mind blowing super powers, but this girl is definitely someone to watch out for.
