By Rachel Vincent
Kaylee has a talent that could also be called a curse. She knows when someone will die. However, she can't warn them because all she can do is hold back a terrifying wail or release it. Her wail is her curse, which is arguably her talent. However, it could save a soul. People are dying and she doesn't know how to help or if she can help. If every day a new person died, would you save them? If some one person survives, another person has to die, would you still save these people?
My Soul to Take is a gripping novel. The plot of the novel is about finding the reasons for recent deaths and beside that rides unanswered questions about Kaylee’s life. I think Rachel Vincent chose to add those questions because it challenged Kaylee to overcome different obstacles, which benefited the novel, making it compelling and helped support the development of Kaylee’s character. I enjoyed this book and thought it was fantastically concluded; it was intriguing and satisfying without leaving you with questions. However, it still left options open for the next book. The romance in My Soul to Take is between Kaylee and Nash, although it is enjoyable, I think that sometimes portions of their love is unnecessary and the space in the novel could be better used in other situations. The theme is the truth should be told. Since Kaylee's life was filled with lies and it was a last minute situation when the truth was delivered. If I suggested this book to an age group, I would say 14 as the minimum because the novel doesn’t contain many scary parts and personally I don’t think it is frightening. Though, there are some things that would be better to read at an appropriate age.
