Soul Screamers #1 My Soul to Take

Finally I foray into Rachel Vincent's books and this was an amazing introduction. Presenting Soul Screamers #1 My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent.

Here is the summary of the book:

She doesn’t see dead people, but...She senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally. Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who’ll be next...

It was high time I began this series and I'm totally not disappointed....the reason I bought the one with the UK cover (I love it). Okay back to the story. Mythos. Bean Sidhes. Mysterious killings. Young girls falling over dead everywhere. And the typical teenage high school love story......or not.

Kaylee Cavanaugh is the typical teenagers. In love with the hot & hunky Nash Hudson. And screams whenever she is near someone about to die. Definitely not normal. Then she finds out she is a bean sidhe, the proverbial wailing spirit, the harbinger of death. Finds out her family and that sexy boyfriend of her's is too.

I was rather skeptical at first. Come on bean sidhe or in the common language pronounced banshee were as the lore around them suggests the wailing spirit, long haired and flowing gown trailing behind funeral processions. Come on how do you make that into a good thing.....but Rachel Vincent did it, she took the sad/bad omen and turned it into an adrenaline inducing fresh story that made us what to know what her bean sidhe(s) look and sound like.

Kaylee was a brilliant protagonist, refreshingly teenager-ly and it was equally interesting to read about her finding her roots and solving the unsolvable murders. Nash Hudson was atotal hottie. An insta-love is not my thing but I suppose it works with both of them being bean sidhes(yes both!). A sweet love this was too and I would definitely like to see how things progress with them in the next books in the series......Rooting for them.

Got to say I did not expect the culprit..... understandable yes but unexpected. And Tod is another character who kept his own share of secrets till the end and brought the spices to this book, would like to see how that is going to develop into. What was truly gorgeous aside from the cover and Vincent's writing was the process of Kaylee discovering her potentials as the female bean sidhe as well as Nash helping her along the way. Oh! This is one series I totally want to own in print with the UK covers.....can't wait to get them all.....bloody brilliant.......BUT GOD I WANT TO STRIKE OUT THE KIRKUS REVIEW LINER ON THE COVER.....what has this got to with TWILIGHT ANYWAY!!!!! *exasperated sigh*

"Dark, Deadly, Soul Screaming and Intrinsic.....Rachel Vincent has given a good meaning to the lore of the bean sidhes"
